    A new published case law has come out of the 4th dist. People v Mejia. In this case it stated that a person can no longer be held for premeditated attempted murder under the natural and probable consequence. Basicly giving the same discretion as in people v chui distinguishing people v favor. Now my question is, where does premeditated attempted murdee under NPC now stands in regards to sb 1437?

    Hi my fiance was also denied in February without any attorney representing him. Judge stated it was unconstitutional. In addition, the judge denied him because he was the “shooter,” however, that is not the case. My fiance has court documents stating the jury found him NOT to be the shooter. We need help what can we do??
