People v. Super. Ct.Annotate this Case
Assembly Bill 2124, as enacted at Penal Code sections 1001.94-1001.99, created a “Deferral of Sentencing Pilot Program” in Los Angeles County. At issue was whether a defendant must pay the fines that a misdemeanor charge would otherwise call for in order to obtain the relief contemplated by the pilot program, namely, an order striking the defendant’s guilty or no contest plea and dismissing the charge. The court answered in the negative and concluded that the trial court correctly deferred sentencing for defendant in this case.
