On April 15, 2022, after nearly 9-months of review, the California Superior Court of Rancho Cucamonga successfully resentenced a Barhoma Law, P.C., sparing him from an illegitimate sentence. The San Bernardino Superior resentencing Court issued Barhoma Law, P.C. a new Abstract of Judgment amending our client’s sentence.
In 2012, the client was initially charged with three (3) counts of robbery (Penal Code1 § 211), each with allegations of the robberies being committed for the benefit of a criminal street gang (§ 186.22, subd. (b)(1)(C)) and use of a firearm (§ 12022.53, subds. (b), (e)(1)). He was also charged with a single count of being a prohibited person (i.e., felon or addict) in possession of a firearm (§ 29800, subd. (a)) with a criminal street gang enhancement (§ 186.22, subd. (b)(1)(A)). Further, it was alleged that he had suffered a prior prison term (§ 667.5, subd. (b)).
After the codification of Penal Code § 1170.03 and Senate Bill § 483, Barhoma Law, P.C. successfully recalled his sentence, seeking a new sentence. This was largely due to Barhoma Law, P.C. finding our client to have received an illegal sentence under the current sentencing schemes.
Upon bringing the petition, Barhoma Law, P.C. subsequently successfully sought to invoke the “Interest of Justice” provision contained in Penal Code § 1170.03 to apply Senate Bill § 483. In reviewing the Petition, alongside with the District Attorney’s review, the Court resentenced the Barhoma Law, P.C. client.
