P. v. David Martinez III, 052640

Remanding a case for the recalculation of criminal laboratory analysis and drug program fees in the case of a man who had a surcharge imposed on the costs because the trial court characterized them as fines rather than fees and, despite a split in decisions relating to this interpretation, the court chose to adopt the reasoning that results in these costs as nonpunitive and therefore not eligible for penalty assessment.
