People v. McDowell, 265879

Sentence for conviction of two counts of misdemeanor shoplifting, reduced from burglary under Proposition 47, is affirmed where: 1) Proposition 47 does not require a court to reduce a sentence should it grant a petition to resentence some counts as misdemeanors; and 2) the trial court's resentencing of defendant, using the high term on the new principal count, was not an abuse of discretion in light of his substantial criminal history.
