The People v. Robert Michael Rodeski

June 28, 2011

THE PEOPLE, PLAINTIFF AND RESPONDENT,
v.
ROBERT MICHAEL RODESKI, DEFENDANT AND APPELLANT.



Super. Ct. Nos. 07F7995, 09F5629

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Robie ,j.

P. v. Rodeski CA3

NOT TO BE PUBLISHED

California Rules of Court, rule 8.1115(a), prohibits courts and parties from citing or relying on opinions not certified for publication or ordered published, except as specified by rule 8.1115(b). This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.

Defendant Robert Michael Rodeski molested the five-year-old daughter of his live-in girlfriend, and a jury found him guilty of committing a forcible lewd act on her. Based on this conviction, the court revoked his probation in an earlier drug case and sentenced him to prison for a total of 14 years.

Defendant appeals, contending the court erred in: (1) admitting evidence of his prior sexual misconduct; and (2) imposing a full, consecutive sentence on the sex offense. We conclude the trial court erred in failing to impose one-third the midterm on the subordinate offense and remand for resentencing.

S.'s mother woke up to S. screaming. She brought S. into her bed and asked her what was wrong. S. said defendant had "grabbed her by her hair and thrown her on the ground." She did not tell her mother about the molestation because she was afraid.

S.'s mother confronted defendant, who was asleep on the couch. He was under the influence of drugs and was "out of it."

S. went to a neighbor's house. She told the neighbor defendant had "grabbed her by her hair," "thrown her down on the floor hard," "pulled his pants down," and "'waved his wienie in [her] face.'" The neighbor called police.
