P. v. Griffin CA1/5
In 2019, in resolving three criminal cases, appellant Ransom Huntley Griffin (Appellant) pled no contest to possession of a controlled substance for sale (Health & Saf. Code, § 11378) and burglary (Pen. Code, § 459), and admitted a prior prison term (§ 667.5, subd. (b)). Pursuant to the negotiated disposition, the trial court sentenced Appellant to eight years, four months
in prison, which included one year for the prior prison term enhancement.
On appeal, Appellant argued this court should strike the prior prison term enhancement due to the enactment of Senate Bill No. 136 (2019-2020 Reg. Sess.), which limits imposition of the section 667.5, subdivision (b), enhancement to prior prison terms for sexually violent offenses. Appellant argued the rest of his sentence under the plea agreement should remain intact.
