People v. Verduzco, B227825

In a conviction of a defendant for drug-related offenses, the judgment of the trial court is: 1) reversed as to his conviction for possession of an essential chemical sufficient to manufacture hydriodic acid or reducing agent with intent to manufacture methamphetamine where the unambiguous language of section 11383.5 (e) requires possession of all constituent elements, not just red phosphorous or iodine alone; 2) remanded as to the trial court's order requiring defendant to pay attorney's fees because it did not conduct a noticed hearing at which he could present evidence of his ability to pay; and 3) affirmed as to defendant's conviction for possession for sale of a controlled substance.
