Jun. 23, 2023 – Yedinak v. Superior Court (4th Dist., Div. 2, E080685)

The Court of Appeal grants petitioner’s writ of mandate challenging the trial court’s denial of bail where defendant had been released on bail for over two years, had made all court appearances, and had not violated any conditions of his release. The Court of Appeal finds that the trial court failed to consider all factors required under the article I, section 12 of the California Constitution and In re Humphrey (2021) 11 Cal.4th 135, and that the record is not clear that the court understood and applied the clear and convincing evidence standard.
