People v. Hoyt (Cal. Supreme Ct. - Jan. 30, 2020)

It's not as exciting as the movie, to be sure.  But here's the California Supreme Court's opinion about the sentence handed down to one of the participants in the killing that led to Alpha Dog.  It involves the only person sentenced to death for that murder, and the only person involved (other than the one who fled to Brazil) in that killing who's still in prison.

Spoiler alert.  The death sentence is unanimously affirmed.
