Supreme Court Will Hear Gang Enhancements Case

04/15/2021--The court granted review in People v. Renteria, where a divided Fifth District Court of Appeal unpublished opinion struck some enhancements and allowed the superior court to strike another, but otherwise affirmed a long prison sentence for two counts, with other enhancements, of shooting at an inhabited dwelling for the benefit of a criminal street gang. The appellate court addressed several different arguments and the Supreme Court hasn’t limited the issues, at least not yet. However, the dissent disagreed only with the majority’s conclusion that substantial evidence supported gang enhancements.
