People v. Foss (Cal. Ct. App. - Sept. 13, 2007)

You don't see many 82-page opinions by the California Court of Appeal in run-of-the-mill child molestation cases. But Justice Nicholson cranks one out here.

Raymond Foss can't be happy with the result, which affirms his convictions and resulting sentence of 36 years to life. But he can't claim the court didn't do a thorough job.

P.S. - There are much worse cases of molestation in the Cal. Apps than this one. But this case is a reminder -- and it's worth reminding -- that virtually any molestation can put you in prison for the rest of your life.
