P. v. Carlos CA1/3
While he was on parole, Armando Lopez Carlos — who had seven prior strike convictions — burglarized a woman’s house and seriously injured her. A jury convicted Carlos of two counts of first degree burglary and receiving stolen property. The trial court denied Carlos’s motion to dismiss the prior strike convictions (People v. Superior Court (Romero) (1996) 13 Cal.4th 497) and sentenced him under the “Three Strikes” law.
On appeal, Carlos contends the evidence does not support convictions for “two distinct burglaries.” He also argues the trial court abused its discretion in denying his Romero motion. The parties agree the abstract of judgment must be corrected, and we modify it. In all other respects, we affirm.
