P. v. Freeman CA1/5
Perry Freeman appeals from a judgment sentencing him to a so-called split sentence under realignment (two years in custody and two years on supervised release pursuant to Penal Code section 1170, subd. (h)(5)) after a jury convicted him of four counts related to his driving of and flight from a stolen car and the court found prior prison enhancements true. He contends: (1) he was denied his right to effective assistance of counsel when the court withdrew a favorable plea offer based on his failure to accept the offer within a period of almost one month; (2) the prosecution did not present substantial evidence that “shaved” keys used to start the stolen car were burglary tools; and (3) the prosecutor committed misconduct in arguing facts not in evidence. We affirm.
