People v. Lara, H036143

In a dispute over whether credit for presentence confinement can be reduced by virtue of a prior conviction when such allegations are struck and dismissed as part of a plea bargain, judgment of trial court is affirmed in part and reversed in part because where a plea bargain is silent concerning the extent to which prior convictions are to be given effect, the question of their effect is vested in the discretion of the trial court if the defendant does not contend that the bargain must be understood to categorically deny such allegations any adverse effect.
