IN RE: BROWN, D036935
Where the legislative history of Penal Code section 3041.5(b)(2)(B) shows that the defendant, convicted of murder, was never within a class of prisoners affected by the 1990 uncodified amendments to the statute, the Board of Prison Terms properly determined it was not reasonable to expect defendant would be suitable for parole release within five years.
