People v. Mendez, A114166
Award of hundreds of days of actual and conduct credit for time served in county jail, related to conviction for assaulting a hospital patient while defendant was committed to the hosptal, is reversed where the court erred in awarding 534 days' credit as there was no reason to award credits to a defendant for time spent in a facility when the defendant would have spent time in the facility irrespective of confinement on a current charge.
