In re Ross, C057249

In conviction for second degree murder and sentence of indeterminate term of 15 years to life in state prison, petition for writ of habeas corpus is granted where: 1) In re Lawrence (Lawrence) requires more of an explanation than did In re Rosenkrantz, which was the controlling law when the Governor made the parole decision in this case; and therefore, 2) the case is remanded to the Governor for further proceedings consistent with the standards articulated in Lawrence.
