Petitioner is currently in the custody of the California Department of Corrections pursuant to a judgment of the Superior Court of California, County of Tulare, upon being convicted by a jury on July 2, 2008 of shooting at an occupied vehicle, two counts of making criminal threats, six counts of assault with a firearm, and a number of sentencing enhancements.
