People v. Williams, B247704

Defendant's convictions and sentence for first degree residential robbery, assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury, and kidnapping are affirmed, but modified, where: 1) because defendant's life sentences are the result of a penalty provision (the Three Strikes law), they are life sentences within the meaning of Penal Code section 186.22(b)(5); and consequently, 2) the trial court erred in imposing the 10-year gang enhancement pursuant to section 186.22(b)(1)(C) and, instead, should have imposed the 15-year minimum parole term.
