Judge Finds Defendant a Major Participant in Robberies

In the following summary, the Third Appellate District found that, contrary to defendant’s assertion that he was “just the getaway driver,” defendant was really a “major participant” in a murder and that defendant acted with “reckless indifference for human life.” The appellate court thus affirmed the trial court that denied defendant’s petition for resentencing under SB 1437 (Penal Code § 1172.6 (former § 1170.95)).
