People v. Retanan, C049493

Conviction and sentence for multiple sexual offenses on minors are affirmed over claims that: 1) the trial court erred in failing to instruct on Penal Code section 288 as a lesser included offense of section 269; 2) the trial court's finding under section 667.1(g) that the offenses were committed on separate occasions violated Blakely; 3) there was insufficient evidence to support a finding that there were four separate molestations of one minor; 4) the imposition of full consecutive sentences under Penal Code section 667.6(d) violated Blakely; and 5) defendant's sentence of 135 years to life constituted cruel and unusual punishment.
