In re Bennett, 055371

Granted habeas relief to a defendant who was convicted of first-degree special circumstance murder while aiding and abetting a robbery. The defendant argued that his life sentence was improper because he was not a major participant in the robbery and did not act with reckless indifference to human life. The California Fourth Appellate District vacated his life sentence and remanded for resentencing, guided by People v. Banks.
