DIVISION ONE














THE PEOPLE,


Plaintiff and Respondent,


v.


DANIEL CHASE,


Defendant and Appellant.



A108260

Under applicable standards of appellate review, we must view the facts in the light most favorable to the judgment of conviction and presume in support of the judgment the existence of every fact which the trial court could reasonably find from the evidence. (People v. Barnes (1986) 42 Cal.3d 284, 303; People v. Neufer (1994) 30 Cal.App.4th 244, 247.)


Failure to Register as a Sex Offender


In 1996, defendant was convicted of misdemeanor indecent exposure (Pen. Code, § 314, subd. (1)) in what was then the Municipal Court of the Walnut Creek/Danville Judicial District. As the Contra Costa County Superior Court found in a writ proceeding brought by defendant, which we will discuss below, â€
