People v. McGowan, JAD15-01

Here, a misdemeanor complaint charged defendant with various public offenses, and at his arraignment, defendant pled not guilty and made a motion to dismiss all charges pursuant to Penal Code section 991. The trial court's order dismissing two of the three charged offenses pursuant to section 991 is reversed, where if the court exercises its dismissal discretion under section 991, it must find that there is no probable cause to support any charged offense and dismiss the complaint in its entirety.
