This is an appeal pursuant to People v. Wende (1979) 25 Cal.3d 436 (Wende).
On April 30, 2009, while at a party in a three-story house, defendant Sean Francis Wanamaker broke into several locked rooms where occupants were sleeping. Defendant stole property and money belonging to four occupants.
Defendant entered a negotiated no contest plea to first degree burglary (Pen. Code, § 459) with four named occupants present, as a strike (Pen. Code, § 667, subd.

The People added an allegation that defendant committed a battery.

Defendant later orally moved to withdraw his admissions and his attorney's motion to withdraw as counsel due to conflict was granted. With new counsel, defendant's written motion to withdraw his admissions was denied after an evidentiary hearing at which defendant testified.
The court denied continued probation and sentenced defendant to state prison for the midterm of four years ...
