Dec. 30, 2022 – In re O’Connor (6th Dist., H049878)

Petitioner was denied bail after being charged with twelve counts of felony child endangerment (PC 273a(a)) based on an eight-month period during which she allegedly supplied her 14-year-old son and other minors with alcohol and encouraged them to engage in sexual activity with one another when intoxicated. Following a grant-and-transfer from the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeal holds that petitioner was charged with “[f]elony offenses involving acts of violence on another person” under Cal. Const., art. I, § 12, subd. (b), and that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying bail.
