THE PEOPLE, PLAINTIFF AND RESPONDENT,

(Super. Ct. No. CRF101608)

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murray , J.

P. v. Eckes CA3

Received for posting 5/15/13

NOT TO BE PUBLISHED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 This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.

This case comes to us pursuant to People v. Wende (1979) 25 Cal.3d 436 (Wende). Having reviewed the record as required by Wende, we affirm the judgment.

We provide the following brief description of the facts and procedural history of the case. (See People v. Kelly (2006) 40 Cal.4th 106, 110, 124.)

PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND

Defendant was charged with attempted murder (Pen. Code, §§ 664, subd. (a), 187, subd. (a) -- count 1),*fn1 attempted second degree robbery (§§ 664, 211 -- count 2), and conspiracy to commit robbery (§§ 182, subd. (a)(1), 211 -- count 3).

The court then imposed the 22-year term, consisting of "the middle base term of two years" for the conspiracy plus 20 years for the firearm use. The court determined defendant was entitled to 824 days of presentence custody credit (717 actual days' credit, plus 107 conduct days' credit pursuant to § 2933.1). The court imposed an agreed-upon $1,275 in victim restitution and restitution fines of $240 in accordance with sections 1202.4, subdivision (b) and 1202.45.
