People v. Henry, 044626

Held that a man should not have been prosecuted under a general felony statute for giving a friend's name to a police officer at a traffic stop and signing a citation with that name, because a more specific misdemeanor statute prohibited the signing of a false name on a promise to appear for a traffic citation. Reversed and remanded for resentencing.
