Dec. 8, 2022 – People v. Maldonado (1st. Dist., Div. 5, A161817)

The Court of Appeal holds that the trial court erred in denying defendant’s PC 1172.6 resentencing petition at the prima facie stage because defendant may have been convicted of first degree murder on a theory under which malice was imputed to him based solely on his participation in a crime.
