Menaster-2015-May-Cropped

by Al Menaster, Deputy Public Defender, Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office.

RECALL OF SENTENCES FOR JUVENILES SERVING LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE
Miller (132 S.Ct. 2455) held that it was cruel and unusual to sentence a juvenile convicted of homicide to mandatory life without parole (LWOP). Are the requirements of Miller satisfied by PC 1170(d)(2), which provides that minors serving LWOP are entitled, after 15 years of doing prison time, to petition the sentencing court for recall of the sentence? Lower courts had split on this question. The Cal. Supremes unanimously rule that the procedures created by PC 1170(d)(2) do NOT satisfy Miller because it doesnit include some of the delineated Miller factors.
In re Kirchner; S233508; 4/24/17; Cal. Supremes

RETROACTIVITY OF CHANGE TO TRANSPORTATION DRUG STATUTE
In 2007, the defendant pled to H&S 11352, transportation of heroin. The plea form specifically stated that the transportation was for personal use. She got Prop. 36 probation and imposition of sentence was suspended. She absconded and ended up back in court in 2015. By then 11352 had been amended (effective 1/1/2014) so that it only applied to transportation for sale, not personal use, so she moved to withdraw her plea. Granted. The DA filed a writ. And wins. Even though generally defendants get the benefit of statutory changes [More…] »

1. People v. Smith (2017) Cal.App.5th , reported on February 21, 2017, in 2017 Los Angeles Daily Journal 1519, the Sixth Appellate District held that the trial court did not err in ordering the defendant to register as a narcotics offender, pursuant to Health and Safety Code section 11590, given the fact that said requirement applies to attempted, as well as completed, violations of Health and Safety Code section 11378. Additionally, the probation condition which required the defendant to submit his cell phones and computer to search and to provide any passwords necessary to conduct such a search was, not unreasonable, vague (see In re Sheena K. (2007) 40 Cal.4th 875, 890), or overbroad (Ibid.). To the extent the defendant preserved his [More…] »

California Public Defenders Android Apps on Google Play

The CPDA Members App. The CPDA Members App was created to help build a closer-knit community among members. Members of CPDA who download the app can join conversations, share photos, learn about events, and locate contact information for all members.

The California Public Defenders Association (CPDA) is a nonprofit organization that serves as a resource center for its members who are all criminal defense attorneys – both private attorneys who practice criminal defense in California, and public defenders who are criminal defense attorneys employed by local county public defender agencies. The organization was formed over 40 years ago and today provides numerous on-site training programs through the year and in different locations held throughout the state of California, all designed exclusively for criminal defense attorneys who practice in California. Together, the two groups of criminal defense attorneys (private defenders and public defenders) comprise the membership of CPDA, which totals over 3,400 practicing criminal defense attorneys in California, in particular, but the membership is open to criminal defense attorneys in other states and several hundred from throughout the U.S. are associate members of CPDA.

Two options to download the CPDA Members App:

1. Download from the Google Play Store:
