People v. Mgebrov, A118081

Conviction for committing of a lewd and lascivious act involving child under the age of 15, sexual battery, and resisting a peace officer is affirmed and trial court order dismissing accusatory pleading of defendant is vacated where: 1) trial court erred by referencing defendant's prior convictions and dismissing the "accusatory pleading"; and 2) plain and commonsense meaning of the text of section 1203.4, indicating trial courts may set aside guilty verdicts on individual counts in an information and dismiss the counts pursuant to section 1203.4, subdivision (a), supports trial court's ruling.
