PEOPLE v. WILKINSON, B145982/154520

Statutes proscribing battery of a custodial officer violate equal protection by permitting prosecutors to arbitrarily subject perpetrators of less egregious conduct to greater punishment than those committing less serious acts. A Kelly/Leahy hearing is mandated to determine admissibility of polygraph evidence.
