People v. Williams

A defendant sentenced before SB 1393 must obtain a certificate of probable cause before seeking a remand for resentencing under the new law.

Under SB 1393, trial courts have the discretion to strike prior serious felony conviction enhancements (Penal Code section 667, subd.(a)) in the interest of justice. Defendants who entered plea agreements must obtain a certificate of probable cause before asking, on appeal, for a remand for resentencing under SB 1393.
