P. v. Hsu, A120768
Sentence of three-year prison term for grand theft is affirmed over claims that: 1) trial court erred in denying defendant's motion to dismiss the charges against him because the 15-year delay in sentencing violated defendant's constitutional right to a speedy trial; and 2) the trial court erred in denying defendant's motion to withdraw his plea because he was not sentenced by the same judge who took his original plea, in violation of People v. Arbuckle.
