People v. Ledbetter (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 6, 2014)

Sometimes the California Court of Appeal really does get things.  Including but not limited to the silliness of some possible adjudications.

Seems to me like the Court of Appeal is correct.  The state wants a retrial on a strike, but there's no need to waste money doing so, since the net result (even if the state was successful on remand) would be to add a single day to the guy's already-existing 39 year sentence.

Makes sense to me.  We've all got better things to do.
