Aug. 25, 2022 – People v. Aguayo (Supreme Ct., S254554)

Where defendant was convicted of both assault with a deadly weapon (PC 245(a)(1)) and assault by means of force likely to cause great bodily injury (PC 245(a)(4)) based on the same acts, the Supreme Court holds that both convictions cannot stand under PC 954, as they are different ways of stating the same offense.
