Monday the Cal. Supremes will issue opinions in the following cases:

 

PEOPLE v. MOSLEY (STEVEN LLOYD)

S187965 (G038379; Orange County Superior Court – 05NF4105)

Argued in Los Angeles 12-02-14

 

This case presents the following issue: Does the discretionary imposition of lifetime sex offender registration, which includes residency restrictions that prohibit registered sex offenders from living “within 2000 feet of any public or private school, or park where children regularly gather” (Pen. Code, § 3003.5, subd. (b)), increase the “penalty” for the offense within the meaning of Apprendi v. New Jersey (2000) 530 U.S. 466, and require that the facts supporting the trial court’s imposition of the registration requirement be found true by a jury beyond a reasonable doubt?

 

In re WILLIAM TAYLOR et al. on Habeas Corpus

S206143 (DO59574; San Diego County Superior Court – HC19743, HC19742, HC19731, HC19612)

Argued in Los Angeles 12-02-14

 

The court limited review to the following issue: Does the residency restriction of Penal Code section 3003.5, subdivision (b), when enforced as a mandatory parole condition against registered sex offenders paroled to San Diego County, constitute an unreasonable statutory parole condition that infringes on their constitutional rights? (See In re E.J. (2010) 47 Cal.4th 1258, 1282, fn. 10.)
