Sentencing California Crimes, an invaluable reference tool for judges and practitioners, is the first comprehensive review of the law and procedure concerning the sentencing of felonies and misdemeanors in California. Arranged to correspond to the linear nature of a sentencing proceeding, this book offers a straightforward discussion of such issues as the proper taking and withdrawal of a plea, the new realignment law and evidence-based practice, and multiple-case sentencing. The materials include handy reference tables, including a list of enhancements that may be struck by the court, registerable offenses, and offenses that bar possession of firearms. Complex sentencing concepts are illustrated through the extensive use of case hypotheticals.

Included among the wide variety of topics are:

  • The purpose of sentencing
  • Referral to probation and setting of sentencing
  • Deferred entry of judgment/diversion/alternative sentencing
  • The probation sentence
  • Proposition 36
  • Application of Cunningham v. California
  • Basic determinate sentence
  • Multiple counts
  • Credit for time served
  • Victim restitution
  • Restitution fines and other assessments
  • Concluding the sentence
  • Sex crimes
  • Three Strikes sentencing
  • And much more
