People v. Love, C055398

Conviction for identity theft-based offenses arising from defendant's abuse of her position of trust as a dental receptionist is affirmed in part and reduced in part where: 1) defendant's conviction in count eight of fraudulently using an access (credit) card was an actual offense because the evidence established both elements described plainly in section 484g, subdivision (a); 2) the prohibition upon dual convictions for theft and receipt of the same property barred defendant from being convicted both of fraudulent use of an access card and receiving stolen property; and 3) certain of defendant's felony convictions had to be reduced to misdemeanors because the jury never determined the amount taken.
