In a petition to recall defendant's sentence for seven felony forgery convictions and for resentencing to misdemeanors pursuant to Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act, Pen. Code sections 1170.18 and 473, the order denying the petition is reversed where a trial court may not refuse to reduce a defendant's sentence based on the court's notion of the statute's "spirit."
