The other case was on for Pre Trial conference for a misdemeanor traffic case. Charge was showing false ID to a police officer....
When Judge Reinholtsen called the cases, Mr. Lee informed the court that there had been a resolution in the case with the felony charge and protective order. Mr. Lee said the People are amending the felony charge of assault to a misdemeanor, penal Code 242, battery. "Mr. Sanchez will plead guilty," he said. The other case was being dismissed.
"The reason for the reduction is because I spoke to the victim," said Mr. Curtis. "She told me what happened. The police report got garbled somehow. There was no misconduct."
