What is the consequence of a conviction for a violation of section 12021 of the California Criminal Code?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Howard, B268558 (Cal. App. 2016):

The jury found defendant guilty of the section 12021 violation, and found the prior strike and prior prison term allegations to be true. The trial court denied defendant's motion to strike his prior strike convictions (People v. Superior Court (Romero) (1996) 13 Cal.4th 497), but elected not to sentence defendant on the prior prison term allegations. The court imposed a sentence of 25 years to life. We affirmed the conviction and sentence in our previous opinion.
