Mar. 14, 2022 – People v. Lopez (2nd Dist., Div. 7, B317228)

In a case where the trial court imposed consecutive sentences for two counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child, the Court of Appeal remands for resentencing because the trial court may not have understood it could impose concurrent terms. PC 667.61(i) requires imposition of consecutive terms for offenses listed in subsections (c)(1)-(7) if the crimes involved separate victims, but defendant’s offense was listed in subsection (c)(9).
