People v. Sanders

Identity theft under section 530.5 is not a theft offense for purposes of Prop 47.

In 2014, defendant pled guilty to two counts of identity theft under Penal Code section 530.5, subd. (a). He later sought to have the offenses reclassified as misdemeanors under Prop 47. The trial court did not err in denying the petition because identity theft under section 530.5 is not really a theft offense, and is not subject to reclassification under Prop 47.
