People v. Lopez, A129470, Div. 4
category/ies: Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

The Court of Appeal agreed 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, and there was insufficient evidence that the defendant willfully violated the registration requirement, because she twice called the evidence technician in charge of the registration program in an apparent attempt to comply with the registration process.
