People v. Hernandez, No. F055430

By FindLaw Staff on September 24, 2009 11:27 AM

Trial court's imposition of enhanced sentencing on a defendant convicted of receiving stolen property while on a release from custody on his own recognizance (O.R.) is vacated as Penal Code section 1318 was not complied with in connection with defendant's release from custody and defendant did not commit a new felony while on an O.R. release.  Therefore, since defendant's release did not qualify as an O.R. release under applicable law, the enhancement findings under section 12022.1 were not supported by the evidence.
