Mar. 14, 2022 – People v. Guerrero (2nd Dist., Div. 7, B311548)

Appellant was sentenced to LWOP for offenses committed when she was 16. In a prior appeal, the Court of Appeal remanded for resentencing and directed the trial court to consider youth-related mitigating factors. On remand, the trial court proceeded in appellant’s absence and resentenced her to LWOP without discussing any youth-related factors. The Court of Appeal remands again for resentencing and orders all further proceedings to be heard in front of a different trial judge.
