ILLEGAL STOP, ARREST WARRANT FOUND, RESULTING EVIDENCE NOT SUPPRESSED
Let’s say that the police illegally stop a defendant. During the stop, the police discover that the defendant has an arrest warrant. The police arrest the defendant, then search him and find, say, meth. Does the illegality of the detention require suppression of the meth? The Cal. Supremes have said no. (Brendlin, 45 C4th 262.) Now the US Supremes say no. They expand the attenuation doctrine, ruling that finding the arrest warrant attenuates the illegality. They say that finding the arrest warrant was “a sufficient intervening event to break the causal chain between the unlawful stop and the discovery of drug-related evidence.” Thereis a strident dissent from Sotomayor. The majority does say that “purposeful and flagrant” police misconduct would require suppression. The majority finds only negligence here. We’ll have to explore facts in our cases to show purposeful and flagrant police misconduct.
Utah v. Strieff; No. 14-1373; 6/20/16; US Supremes

Mandinach

by Gary Mandinach, Attorney at Law, California Appellate Project, Los Angeles, California

1. In re Ivan N. (2016) Cal.App.4th , reported on May 23, 2016, in 2016 Los Angeles Daily Journal 4775, the Fourth Appellate District, Division 1 held that the juvenile court did not err in failing to conduct an additional hearing regarding his educational preferences as a “foster child,” after he was adjudication a ward of the court under Welfare and Institutions Code section 602, and a dispositional order made under Welfare and Institutions Code section 727. Neither Education Code section 48853.5 which requires consideration of a preference by a “foster child” or other minor subject to the auspices of the juvenile court to continue attending the minor’s school of origin, nor Rule of Court, Rule 5.651(a) or 5.790, requires the juvenile court to conduct an additional hearing, in a case where the court has issued a dispositional order requiring community-based treatment (see Ed. Code ‘ 48645.1) and potentially resulting in the minor=s placement at a juvenile court school, to determine whether the minor could be returned to his high school of origin after he received a short period of such treatment. (See In re Angela M. (2003) 111 Cal.App.4th 1392, 1397-1399.)

2. People v. Robinson (2016) Cal.4th , reported on May 24, 2016, in 2016 Los Angeles Daily Journal 4846, the California Supreme Court held that misdemeanor sexual battery (‘ 243.4, subd. (e)(1)) is not a lesser included offense of sexual battery by misrepresentation of a professional purpose (‘ 243.4 subd. (c)) where the same evidence is required to support all elements of misdemeanor sexual battery and sexual battery by fraudulent representation, the former offense is not a lesser included offense of the latter. While it is true that every defendant who commits sexual battery by misrepresentation of professional purpose also commits misdemeanor sexual battery; the victim has been touched for a sexual purpose without consenting. However, the victim’s lack of consent arises from a particular circumstance created by the defendant’s misrepresentation. Moreover, a charge of sexual battery under section 243.4, subdivision (c) does not notify the defendant of the need to contest the consent issue on any basis other than the alleged fraudulent representation.

CPDA Training Programs: Public defenders and private practitioners have opportunities to attend a wide variety of continuing legal education programs developed by CPDA over the past 45 years. Our 45th Annual Basic Trial Skills Institute Program is designed to give our less experienced defenders opportunities to: (1) learn, practice and build client-centered values, (2) form an engaging community with shared values, (3) improve pretrial and trial advocacy skills, (4) enrich defender pride, (5) become better storytellers and improve persuasive skills, (6) grow by stretching outside of one’s comfort zone, (7) strengthen one’s sense of confidence, (8) prepare to tackle hard facts and new challenges and (9) develop into future leaders. We will concentrate on major aspects of trial practice through the use of presentations, demonstrations, and small group practice sessions using video recordings to analyze each participant’s approach to the various segments, i.e., client interviews, cross-examination, voir dire, and closing argument. Note: This program is held entirely on the campus of the University of San Diego, Alcala Park (USD, not UCSD).

Op-Ed: A step backward for justice reform – Proposal to cut peremptory challenges in misdemeanor cases from 10 to six
June 15, 2016 – 17:30 | Comments Off on Op-Ed: A step backward for justice reform – Proposal to cut peremptory challenges in misdemeanor cases from 10 to six

Jeff Adachi

BY JEFF ADACHI
Special to The Bee

Setting policy is a lot like making sausage: We want to see the cleanly packaged result rather than the gory process.

But last week, Gov. Jerry Brown did something so undemocratic, we can’t look away. He slipped a last-minute bill into the state budget that has been rejected numerous times.

Senate Bill 843, a budget trailer bill to be voted on Thursday, would cut the number of peremptory challenges in misdemeanor trials from 10 to six. Peremptory challenges allow attorneys to dismiss jurors without giving a reason. Both prosecutors and defense attorneys oppose the bill, because it undermines our ability to weed out jurors we suspect, but cannot prove, are biased.

Here are five reasons why Californians should care: [Please see link below for full article at the Sacramento Bee’s website]

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:
