Dear DA: No backsies!

Nice Supreme Court decision today: if a DA enters into a plea bargain and D later petitions for resentencing under Prop. 47, the DA is not allowed to take back the original plea bargain.  E.g., here, DA dismissed robbery to allow D to plead to theft.  D’s petition for resentencing under Prop. 47 was to be granted so DA wanted to take back the original plea bargain. The trial court said that’s all good.  The 2nd District said ya, we’s with the trial court.  The Supreme Court said no! No takesy backsies! This is a great result, especially if it will impact Prop. 57 and petitions for resentencing for weed sales.  Lovely.
