2012 Appeal Case - People v. Winters

This case is an example of a "hearsay/confrontation" (Sixth Amendment) defense (see Defect # 10 - D on the Home page).

This case originated in the City of Victorville, and momentarily reached the District Court of Appeal (DCA).

  With the DCA's vacation of the transfer, the Appellate Division's published decision is final, and it can be cited as precedent in other cases. 

The general issue of which decisions get published, and which don't, is under study.  See for more information.
