Jun. 2, 2023 – People v. Hodges (2nd. Dist., Div. 6, B323199)

After the trial court denied defendant’s motion to vacate his long-final sentence, defendant appealed, and appellate counsel filed a no-issues brief requesting an independent review. Describing the motion to vacate as “a habeas petition masquerading as a postjudgment motion,” the Court of Appeal dismisses the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
