P. v. Mendoza CA6
Pursuant to a plea agreement resolving two cases, defendant Freddie Mendoza pleaded no contest to five drug-related charges and admitted various enhancement allegations. In exchange, the prosecutor agreed to the dismissal of other enhancement allegations and to a nine-year split sentence, consisting of three years in local custody and six years of mandatory supervision, including one year in a residential treatment program. On appeal, defendant raises a number of challenges to his sentence, including that the trial court violated the plea agreement by sentencing him to three years and 69 days in county jail. We agree and reverse and remand with directions.
