         OPINION

         TANGEMAN, J.

Page 155

          Sean F. Dunn appeals an order denying a petition to recall his sentence for felony petty theft with a prior and for resentencing to a misdemeanor pursuant to Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and School Act (the Act). (Pen. Code, � � 1170.18, 666.)[1]

         Here we hold that a person is not eligible for resentencing pursuant to section 666 if the person is required to register as a sex offender as a result of a prior juvenile adjudication. (� � 666, 290.008, formerly � 290, subd. (d)(1).) This treatment of registered juvenile sex offenders does not deny Dunn equal protection of the laws. (U.S. Const., 14th Amend.; Cal. Const., art. I, � 7, subd. (a).)

          BACKGROUND

         In 1990, when Dunn was 14 years old, he committed two acts of forcible rape in concert with another and three acts of forcible sexual penetration. A juvenile court sustained allegations that he committed two counts of section 264.1 and three counts of section 289, subdivision (a). It committed him to the California Youth Authority for a 54-year term. Following Dunn’s discharge, he was required to register as a sex offender. (� 290.008, formerly � 290, subd. (d)(1).)[2]

          In 1997, Dunn was sentenced to prison for assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury. (� 245, former subd. (a)(1).) In 2011, he returned to prison for robbery. (� 211.) While on parole for the robbery in 2012, he stole items from a department store. He pled guilty to felony petty theft with a prior. (� 666, former subd. (b).) He admitted the prior strike conviction for robbery and the court sentenced him to 32 months in prison. (� 667, subds. (b)-(i).)

          Dunn was released on parole in 2014, with electronic monitoring. (� � 3000.08, subd. (a), 3010.10, subd. (b).) Two months later, he violated parole by removing his electronic tracking device. The court revoked and reinstated his parole. In 2015, ...
