Sep. 15, 2022 – People v. Board of Parole Hearings (3rd Dist., C093941)

After appellant became eligible for a youth offender parole hearing under SB 394, the trial court granted the district attorney’s petition for writ of mandate and found the bill was an unlawful amendment to Prop 115 and violated the California Constitution. Without reaching the merits of the issue, the Court of Appeal reverses, finding the district attorney lacked standing to bring the petition.
