People v. Valdez, 052105

In a petition for recall of his indeterminate life sentence and resentencing in accordance with the Three Strikes Reform Act, commonly referred to as Proposition 36, the denial of the petition is reversed where more specific definition of "an unreasonable risk of danger to public safety" contained in Proposition 47 is the appropriate standard to apply to resentencing petitions under Proposition 36.
