Which was determined during a CA court case resulting in a conviction for possession of an assault weapon.
Since the defendant did not appeal the conviction, it did not become CA case law.
However, what occured can still be referenced/utilized by any of the 58 DA's Office, if they choose to prosecute for a similar case.
