March 28, 2012
THE PEOPLE, PLAINTIFF AND RESPONDENT,
PAUL PATRICK SEATON, DEFENDANT AND APPELLANT.
(Super. Ct. No. CM034452)
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Nicholson , Acting P. J.
P. v. Seaton
NOT TO BE PUBLISHED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 This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.
Appointed counsel for defendant, Paul Patrick Seaton, asked this court to review the record to determine whether there are any arguable issues on appeal. (People v. Wende (1979) 25 Cal.3d 436 (Wende).) We find no arguable error and no concerns regarding presentence credits. We affirm.
In May 2011, law enforcement officers entered an apartment in Butte County looking for a parolee at large. Inside the apartment, officers found defendant who was living there with his girlfriend. During a search of the apartment, officers found 18 grams of methamphetamine, packaged in various sizes, scales, cash totaling $1,893, and drug paraphernalia.
Defendant was arrested and subsequently charged with possession of methamphetamine for sale (Health & Saf. Code, § 11378), possession of methamphetamine (Health & Saf. Code, § 11377, subd. (a)), being under the influence of a controlled substance (Health & Saf. Code, § 11550, subd. (a)), and possessing drug paraphernalia (Health & Saf. Code, § 11364, subd. (a)). It was further alleged that defendant served three prior prison terms.
Defendant waived a preliminary hearing and pleaded no contest to the charge of possessing methamphetamine for sale and agreed to a stipulated term of three years in state prison. Defendant also agreed to forfeiture of the cash found in his apartment. In exchange for defendant's plea, the remaining charges and allegations were dismissed.
Defendant waived a probation report for sentencing and was sentenced in accordance with his plea. Defendant was ordered to pay various fines and fees, including a $40 criminal conviction assessment pursuant to Government Code section 70373.*fn1 Defendant received no custody credit pursuant to People v. Bruner (1995) 9 Cal.4th 1178.
Defendant appeals without obtaining a certificate of probable cause.
Appointed counsel filed an opening brief that sets forth the facts of the case and asked this court to review the record and determine whether there are any arguable issues on appeal. (Wende, supra, 25 Cal.3d 436.) Defendant was advised by counsel of the right to file a supplemental brief within 30 days of the date of filing of the opening brief. More than 30 days have elapsed and we have received no communication from defendant.
Having undertaken an examination of the entire record, we find no arguable error that would result in a disposition more favorable to defendant.
The judgment is affirmed.
