In People v. Lopez , No. A129470, the Court held that  there was insufficient evidence to support the defendant's conviction for failing to register within five days of changing her address. Specifically, the record failed to disclose with certainty when the 5-day period began . Our victory blog post on Lopez is posted here.

In People v. Strickland , No. A130961, the Court of Appeal held that under Penal Code section 1203.2a, the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to sentence appellant. The sentencing occurred more than 60 days from the date that the probation officer notified the trial court that appellant had been committed to prison for another offense . Our victory blog post on Strickland is posted here.
