May 24, 2022 – People v. Jones (1st Dist., Div. 4, A160328)

The Court of Appeal concludes appellant is entitled to retroactive application of the ameliorative changes effected by SB 567 and AB 518 and remands for resentencing. The court further holds appellant is entitled to a “full resentencing” on remand at which appellant “may present arguments as to any sentencing issue,” including appellant’s firearm and prior serious felony enhancements. The court therefore declines to address whether SB 620 and SB 1393 – which took effect before appellant was sentenced – would themselves provide a basis for resentencing.
