Apr. 24, 2023 – People v. Fredrickson (1st Dist., Div. 5., A164803)

The trial court sentenced 23-year-old defendant to the middle term without expressly addressing the low-term presumption of PC 1170(b)(6)(B). The Court of Appeal holds that the trial court was not required to make an express finding regarding PC 1170(b)(6)(B) since nothing in the record showed that defendant’s youth was a “contributing factor” in the commission of the underlying offense.
