People v. Rabanales, E043083

Seven-year sentence for attempted murder pursuant to a plea agreement is affirmed over claims of error that: 1) the trial court did not follow the plea agreement when it imposed the sentence; 2) the trial court deprived defendant of his constitutional right to due process and his right to a jury trial when it found him in violation of his plea agreement and sent him to prison because of a domestic violence allegation that was never tried to a jury or proven beyond a reasonable doubt; and 3) trial court erred in finding that defendant violated a condition of his own recognizance release while awaiting final sentencing.
