California Court of Appeal

In re Smith, B207324

In an appeal of a parole determination, superior court's order granting plaintiff's petition for writ of habeas corpus is reversed where evidence existed to support a conclusion that plaintiff is unsuitable for parole because she is currently dangerous, including the aggravated circumstances of the commitment offense and her lack of insight into her criminal behavior, as well as her failure to take responsibility for her past violent conduct.
