BILL NUMBER: AB 2263	INTRODUCED
	BILL TEXT


INTRODUCED BY   Assembly Member Yamada

                        FEBRUARY 18, 2010

   An act to amend and repeal Sections 186.22, 186.33, 1170, 1170.1,
1170.3, 12021.5, 12022.2, and 12022.4 of the Penal Code, relating to
sentencing.



	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2263, as introduced, Yamada. Sentencing.
   Existing law provides that most felonies are punishable by a triad
of terms of incarceration in the state prison, comprised of low,
middle, and upper terms. Previous law that required the court to
impose the middle term, unless there were circumstances in
aggravation or mitigation of the crime, was amended to provide that
the choice of the appropriate term rests within the sound discretion
of the court. Existing provisions related to sentence enhancements
involving criminal street gang activity, firearms, and sentencing
generally specify that the appropriate term rests within the sound
discretion of the court. Existing law repeals the provision giving
the court this discretionary authority on January 1, 2011, and on
that date, makes operative alternate provisions that require the
court to impose the middle term, unless there are circumstances in
mitigation or aggravation of the crime.
   This bill would continue in existence indefinitely the provisions
of law that provide that the court shall, in its discretion, impose
the term or enhancement that best serves the interests of justice.
   This bill would amend Proposition 21, an initiative statute
adopted by the voters at the March 7, 2000, Statewide Primary
Election that provides that its provisions may be amended by the
Legislature by a 2/3 vote of the membership of each house, and
therefore requires a 2/3 vote.
   Vote: 2/3. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: no.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 186.22 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section
1 of Chapter 171 of the Statutes of 2009, is amended to read:

circumstance in aggravation of the crime in imposing a term under
paragraph (1).
   (3) The court shall select the sentence enhancement which, in the
court's discretion, best serves the interests of justice and shall
state the reasons for its choice on the record at the time of the

sentence imposed upon the defendant for a violation of subdivision
(a), or in cases involving a true finding of the enhancement
enumerated in subdivision (b), the court shall require that the
defendant serve a minimum of 180 days in a county jail as a condition
thereof.
   (d) Any person who is convicted of a public offense punishable as
a felony or a misdemeanor, which is committed for the benefit of, at
the direction of or in association with, any criminal street gang
with the specific intent to promote, further, or assist in any
criminal conduct by gang members, shall be punished by imprisonment
in the county jail not to exceed one year, or by imprisonment in the

   (c) This section shall become operative on January 1, 2011.

  SEC. 5.  Section 1170 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section 1 of
Chapter 416 of the Statutes of 2008, is amended to read:
   1170.  (a) (1) The Legislature finds and declares that the purpose
of imprisonment for crime is punishment. This purpose is best served
by terms proportionate to the seriousness of the offense with
provision for uniformity in the sentences of offenders committing the
same offense under similar circumstances. The Legislature further
finds and declares that the elimination of disparity and the
provision of uniformity of sentences can best be achieved by
determinate sentences fixed by statute in proportion to the
seriousness of the offense as determined by the Legislature to be
imposed by the court with specified discretion.

         (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), the Legislature further
finds and declares that programs should be available for inmates,
including, but not limited to, educational programs, that are
designed to prepare nonviolent felony offenders for successful
reentry into the community. The Legislature encourages the
development of policies and programs designed to educate and
rehabilitate nonviolent felony offenders. In implementing this
section, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is
encouraged to give priority enrollment in programs to promote
successful return to the community to an inmate with a short
remaining term of commitment and a release date that would allow him
or her adequate time to complete the program.
   (3) In any case in which the punishment prescribed by statute for
a person convicted of a public offense is a term of imprisonment in
the state prison of any specification of three time periods, the
court shall sentence the defendant to one of the terms of
imprisonment specified unless the convicted person is given any other
disposition provided by law, including a fine, jail, probation, or
the suspension of imposition or execution of sentence or is sentenced
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1168 because he or she had
committed his or her crime prior to July 1, 1977. In sentencing the
convicted person, the court shall apply the sentencing rules of the
Judicial Council. The court, unless it determines that there are
circumstances in mitigation of the punishment prescribed, shall also
impose any other term that it is required by law to impose as an
additional term. Nothing in this article shall affect any provision
of law that imposes the death penalty, that authorizes or restricts
the granting of probation or suspending the execution or imposition
of sentence, or expressly provides for imprisonment in the state
prison for life. In any case in which the amount of preimprisonment
credit under Section 2900.5 or any other provision of law is equal to
or exceeds any sentence imposed pursuant to this chapter, the entire
sentence shall be deemed to have been served and the defendant shall
not be actually delivered to the custody of the secretary. The court
shall advise the defendant that he or she shall serve a period of
parole and order the defendant to report to the parole office closest
to the defendant's last legal residence, unless the in-custody
credits equal the total sentence, including both confinement time and
the period of parole. The sentence shall be deemed a separate prior
prison term under Section 667.5, and a copy of the judgment and other
necessary documentation shall be forwarded to the secretary.
   (b) When a judgment of imprisonment is to be imposed and the
statute specifies three possible terms, the choice of the appropriate
term shall rest within the sound discretion of the court. At least
four days prior to the time set for imposition of judgment, either
party or the victim, or the family of the victim if the victim is
deceased, may submit a statement in aggravation or mitigation. In
determining the appropriate term, the court may consider the record
in the case, the probation officer's report, other reports including
reports received pursuant to Section 1203.03 and statements in
aggravation or mitigation submitted by the prosecution, the
defendant, or the victim, or the family of the victim if the victim
is deceased, and any further evidence introduced at the sentencing
hearing. The court shall select the term which, in the court's
discretion, best serves the interests of justice. The court shall set
forth on the record the reasons for imposing the term selected and
the court may not impose an upper term by using the fact of any
enhancement upon which sentence is imposed under any provision of
law. A term of imprisonment shall not be specified if imposition of
sentence is suspended.
   (c) The court shall state the reasons for its sentence choice on
the record at the time of sentencing. The court shall also inform the
defendant that as part of the sentence after expiration of the term
he or she may be on parole for a period as provided in Section 3000.
   (d) When a defendant subject to this section or subdivision (b) of
Section 1168 has been sentenced to be imprisoned in the state prison
and has been committed to the custody of the secretary, the court
may, within 120 days of the date of commitment on its own motion, or
at any time upon the recommendation of the secretary or the Board of
Parole Hearings, recall the sentence and commitment previously
ordered and resentence the defendant in the same manner as if he or
she had not previously been sentenced, provided the new sentence, if
any, is no greater than the initial sentence. The resentence under
this subdivision shall apply the sentencing rules of the Judicial
Council so as to eliminate disparity of sentences and to promote
uniformity of sentencing. Credit shall be given for time served.
   (e) (1) Notwithstanding any other law and consistent with
paragraph (1) of subdivision (a), if the secretary or the Board of
Parole Hearings or both determine that a prisoner satisfies the
criteria set forth in paragraph (2), the secretary or the board may
recommend to the court that the prisoner's sentence be recalled.
   (2) The court shall have the discretion to resentence or recall if
the court finds that the facts described in subparagraph (A) and (B)
or subparagraphs (B) and (C) exist:
   (A) The prisoner is terminally ill with an incurable condition
caused by an illness or disease that would produce death within six
months, as determined by a physician employed by the department.
   (B) The conditions under which the prisoner would be released or
receive treatment do not pose a threat to public safety.
   (C) The prisoner is permanently medically incapacitated with a
medical condition that renders him or her permanently unable to
perform activities of basic daily living, and results in the prisoner
requiring 24-hour total care, including, but not limited to, coma,
persistent vegetative state, brain death, ventilator-dependency, loss
of control of muscular or neurological function, and that
incapacitation did not exist at the time of the original sentencing.
   The Board of Parole Hearings shall make findings pursuant to this
subdivision before making a recommendation for resentence or recall
to the court. This subdivision does not apply to a prisoner sentenced
to death or a term of life without the possibility of parole.
   (3) Within 10 days of receipt of a positive recommendation by the
secretary or the board, the court shall hold a hearing to consider
whether the prisoner's sentence should be recalled.
   (4) Any physician employed by the department who determines that a
prisoner has six months or less to live shall notify the chief
medical officer of the prognosis. If the chief medical officer
concurs with the prognosis, he or she shall notify the warden. Within
48 hours of receiving notification, the warden or the warden's
representative shall notify the prisoner of the recall and
resentencing procedures, and shall arrange for the prisoner to
designate a family member or other outside agent to be notified as to
the prisoner's medical condition and prognosis, and as to the recall
and resentencing procedures. If the inmate is deemed mentally unfit,
the warden or the warden's representative shall contact the inmate's
emergency contact and provide the information described in paragraph
(2).
   (5) The warden or the warden's representative shall provide the
prisoner and his or her family member, agent, or emergency contact,
as described in paragraph (4), updated information throughout the
recall and resentencing process with regard to the prisoner's medical
condition and the status of the prisoner's recall and resentencing
proceedings.
   (6) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, the
prisoner or his or her family member or designee may independently
request consideration for recall and resentencing by contacting the
chief medical officer at the prison or the secretary. Upon receipt of
the request, the chief medical officer and the warden or the warden'
s representative shall follow the procedures described in paragraph
(4). If the secretary determines that the prisoner satisfies the
criteria set forth in paragraph (2), the secretary or board may
recommend to the court that the prisoner's sentence be recalled. The
secretary shall submit a recommendation for release within 30 days in
the case of inmates sentenced to determinate terms and, in the case
of inmates sentenced to indeterminate terms, the secretary shall make
a recommendation to the Board of Parole Hearings with respect to the
inmates who have applied under this section. The board shall
consider this information and make an independent judgment pursuant
to paragraph (2) and make findings related thereto before rejecting
the request or making a recommendation to the court. This action
shall be taken at the next lawfully noticed board meeting.
   (7) Any recommendation for recall submitted to the court by the
secretary or the Board of Parole Hearings shall include one or more
medical evaluations, a postrelease plan, and findings pursuant to
paragraph (2).
   (8) If possible, the matter shall be heard before the same judge
of the court who sentenced the prisoner.
   (9) If the court grants the recall and resentencing application,
the prisoner shall be released by the department within 48 hours of
receipt of the court's order, unless a longer time period is agreed
to by the inmate. At the time of release, the warden or the warden's
representative shall ensure that the prisoner has each of the
following in his or her possession: a discharge medical summary, full
medical records, state identification, parole medications, and all
property belonging to the prisoner. After discharge, any additional
records shall be sent to the prisoner's forwarding address.
   (10) The secretary shall issue a directive to medical and
correctional staff employed by the department that details the
guidelines and procedures for initiating a recall and resentencing
procedure. The directive shall clearly state that any prisoner who is
given a prognosis of six months or less to live is eligible for
recall and resentencing consideration, and that recall and
resentencing procedures shall be initiated upon that prognosis.
   (f) Any sentence imposed under this article shall be subject to
the provisions of Sections 3000 and 3057 and any other applicable
provisions of law.
   (g) A sentence to state prison for a determinate term for which
only one term is specified, is a sentence to state prison under this
section. 
   (h) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2011, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before that date, deletes or extends that
date. 
  SEC. 6.  Section 1170 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section 2 of
Chapter 416 of the Statutes of 2008, is repealed. 
   1170.  (a) (1) The Legislature finds and declares that the purpose
of imprisonment for crime is punishment. This purpose is best served
by terms proportionate to the seriousness of the offense with
provision for uniformity in the sentences of offenders committing the
same offense under similar circumstances. The Legislature further
finds and declares that the elimination of disparity and the
provision of uniformity of sentences can best be achieved by
determinate sentences fixed by statute in proportion to the
seriousness of the offense as determined by the Legislature to be
imposed by the court with specified discretion.
   (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), the Legislature further finds
and declares that programs should be available for inmates,
including, but not limited to, educational programs, that are
designed to prepare nonviolent felony offenders for successful
reentry into the community. The Legislature encourages the
development of policies and programs designed to educate and
rehabilitate nonviolent felony offenders. In implementing this
section, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is
encouraged to give priority enrollment in programs to promote
successful return to the community to an inmate with a short
remaining term of commitment and a release date that would allow him
or her adequate time to complete the program.
   (3) In any case in which the punishment prescribed by statute for
a person convicted of a public offense is a term of imprisonment in
the state prison of any specification of three time periods, the
court shall sentence the defendant to one of the terms of
imprisonment specified unless the convicted person is given any other
disposition provided by law, including a fine, jail, probation, or
the suspension of imposition or execution of sentence or is sentenced
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1168 because he or she had
committed his or her crime prior to July 1, 1977. In sentencing the
convicted person, the court shall apply the sentencing rules of the
Judicial Council. The court, unless it determines that there are
circumstances in mitigation of the punishment prescribed, shall also
impose any other term that it is required by law to impose as an
additional term. Nothing in this article shall affect any provision
of law that imposes the death penalty, that authorizes or restricts
the granting of probation or suspending the execution or imposition
of sentence, or expressly provides for imprisonment in the state
prison for life. In any case in which the amount of preimprisonment
credit under Section 2900.5 or any other provision of law is equal to
or exceeds any sentence imposed pursuant to this chapter, the entire
sentence shall be deemed to have been served and the defendant shall
not be actually delivered to the custody of the secretary. The court
shall advise the defendant that he or she shall serve a period of
parole and order the defendant to report to the parole office closest
to the defendant's last legal residence, unless the in-custody
credits equal the total sentence, including both confinement time and
the period of parole. The sentence shall be deemed a separate prior
prison term under Section 667.5, and a copy of the judgment and other
necessary documentation shall be forwarded to the secretary.
   (b) When a judgment of imprisonment is to be imposed and the
statute specifies three possible terms, the court shall order
imposition of the middle term, unless there are circumstances in
aggravation or mitigation of the crime. At least four days prior to
the time set for imposition of judgment, either party or the victim,
or the family of the victim if the victim is deceased, may submit a
statement in aggravation or mitigation to dispute facts in the record
or the probation officer's report, or to present additional facts.
In determining whether there are circumstances that justify
imposition of the upper or lower term, the court may consider the
record in the case, the probation officer's report, other reports
including reports received pursuant to Section 1203.03 and statements
in aggravation or mitigation submitted by the prosecution, the
defendant, or the victim, or the family of the victim if the victim
is deceased, and any further evidence introduced at the sentencing
hearing. The court shall set forth on the record the facts and
reasons for imposing the upper or lower term. The court may not
impose an upper term by using the fact of any enhancement upon which
sentence is imposed under any provision of law. A term of
imprisonment shall not be specified if imposition of sentence is
suspended.
   (c) The court shall state the reasons for its sentence choice on
the record at the time of sentencing. The court shall also inform the
defendant that as part of the sentence after expiration of the term
he or she may be on parole for a period as provided in Section 3000.
   (d) When a defendant subject to this section or subdivision (b) of
Section 1168 has been sentenced to be imprisoned in the state prison
and has been committed to the custody of the secretary, the court
may, within 120 days of the date of commitment on its own motion, or
at any time upon the recommendation of the secretary or the Board of
Parole Hearings, recall the sentence and commitment previously
ordered and resentence the defendant in the same manner as if he or
she had not previously been sentenced, provided the new sentence, if
any, is no greater than the initial sentence. The resentence under
this subdivision shall apply the sentencing rules of the Judicial
Council so as to eliminate disparity of sentences and to promote
uniformity of sentencing. Credit shall be given for time served.
   (e) (1) Notwithstanding any other law and consistent with
paragraph (1) of subdivision (a), if the secretary or the Board of
Parole Hearings or both determine that a prisoner satisfies the
criteria set forth in paragraph (2), the secretary or the board may
recommend to the court that the prisoner's sentence be recalled.
   (2) The court shall have the discretion to resentence or recall if
the court finds that the facts described in subparagraphs (A) and
(B) or subparagraphs (B) and (C) exist:
   (A) The prisoner is terminally ill with an incurable condition
caused by an illness or disease that would produce death within six
months, as determined by a physician employed by the department.
   (B) The conditions under which the prisoner would be released or
receive treatment do not pose a threat to public safety.
   (C) The prisoner is permanently medically incapacitated with a
medical condition that renders him or her permanently unable to
perform activities of basic daily living, and results in the prisoner
requiring 24-hour total care, including, but not limited to, coma,
persistent vegetative state, brain death, ventilator-dependency, loss
of control of muscular or neurological function, and that
incapacitation did not exist at the time of the original sentencing.
   The Board of Parole Hearings shall make findings pursuant to this
subdivision before making a recommendation for resentence or recall
to the court. This subdivision does not apply to a prisoner sentenced
to death or a term of life without the possibility of parole.
   (3) Within 10 days of receipt of a positive recommendation by the
secretary or the board, the court shall hold a hearing to consider
whether the prisoner's sentence should be recalled.
   (4) Any physician employed by the department who determines that a
prisoner has six months or less to live shall notify the chief
medical officer of the prognosis. If the chief medical officer
concurs with the prognosis, he or she shall notify the warden. Within
48 hours of receiving notification, the warden or the warden's
representative shall notify the prisoner of the recall and
resentencing procedures, and shall arrange for the prisoner to
designate a family member or other outside agent to be notified as to
the prisoner's medical condition and prognosis, and as to the recall
and resentencing procedures. If the inmate is deemed mentally unfit,
the warden or the warden's representative shall contact the inmate's
emergency contact and provide the information described in paragraph
(2).
   (5) The warden or the warden's representative shall provide the
prisoner and his or her family member, agent, or emergency contact,
as described in paragraph (4), updated information throughout the
recall and resentencing process with regard to the prisoner's medical
condition and the status of the prisoner's recall and resentencing
proceedings.
   (6) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, the
prisoner or his or her family member or designee may independently
request consideration for recall and resentencing by contacting the
chief medical officer at the prison or the secretary. Upon receipt of
the request, the chief medical officer and the warden or the warden'
s representative shall follow the procedures described in paragraph
(4). If the secretary determines that the prisoner satisfies the
criteria set forth in paragraph (2), the secretary or board may
recommend to the court that the prisoner's sentence be recalled. The
secretary shall submit a recommendation for release within 30 days in
the case of inmates sentenced to determinate terms and, in the case
of inmates sentenced to indeterminate terms, the secretary shall make
a recommendation to the Board of Parole Hearings with respect to the
inmates who have applied under this section. The board shall
consider this information and make an independent judgment pursuant
to paragraph (2) and make findings related thereto before rejecting
the request or making a recommendation to the court. This action
shall be taken at the next lawfully noticed board meeting.
   (7) Any recommendation for recall submitted to the court by the
secretary or the Board of Parole Hearings shall include one or more
medical evaluations, a postrelease plan, and findings pursuant to
paragraph (2).
   (8) If possible, the matter shall be heard before the same judge
of the court who sentenced the prisoner.
   (9) If the court grants the recall and resentencing application,
the prisoner shall be released by the department within 48 hours of
receipt of the court's order, unless a longer time period is agreed
to by the inmate. At the time of release, the warden or the warden's
representative shall ensure that the prisoner has each of the
following in his or her possession: a discharge medical summary, full
medical records, state identification, parole medications, and all
property belonging to the prisoner. After discharge, any additional
records shall be sent to the prisoner's forwarding address.
   (10) The secretary shall issue a directive to medical and
correctional staff employed by the department that details the
guidelines and procedures for initiating a recall and resentencing
procedure. The directive shall clearly state that any prisoner who is
given a prognosis of six months or less to live is eligible for
recall and resentencing consideration, and that recall and
resentencing procedures shall be initiated upon that prognosis.
   (f) Any sentence imposed under this article shall be subject to
the provisions of Sections 3000 and 3057 and any other applicable
provisions of law.
   (g) A sentence to state prison for a determinate term for which
only one term is specified, is a sentence to state prison under this
section.
   (h) This section shall become operative on January 1, 2011.

  SEC. 7.  Section 1170.1 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section 5
of Chapter 171 of the Statutes of 2009, is amended to read:
   1170.1.  (a) Except as otherwise provided by law, and subject to
Section 654, when any person is convicted of two or more felonies,
whether in the same proceeding or court or in different proceedings
or courts, and whether by judgment rendered by the same or by a
different court, and a consecutive term of imprisonment is imposed
under Sections 669 and 1170, the aggregate term of imprisonment for
all these convictions shall be the sum of the principal term, the
subordinate term, and any additional term imposed for applicable
enhancements for prior convictions, prior prison terms, and Section
12022.1. The principal term shall consist of the greatest term of
imprisonment imposed by the court for any of the crimes, including
any term imposed for applicable specific enhancements. The
subordinate term for each consecutive offense shall consist of
one-third of the middle term of imprisonment prescribed for each
other felony conviction for which a consecutive term of imprisonment
is imposed, and shall include one-third of the term imposed for any
specific enhancements applicable to those subordinate offenses.
   (b) If a person is convicted of two or more violations of
kidnapping, as defined in Section 207, involving separate victims,
the subordinate term for each consecutive offense of kidnapping shall
consist of the full middle term and shall include the full term
imposed for specific enhancements applicable to those subordinate
offenses.
   (c) In the case of any person convicted of one or more felonies
committed while the person is confined in a state prison or is
subject to reimprisonment for escape from custody and the law either
requires the terms to be served consecutively or the court imposes
consecutive terms, the term of imprisonment for all the convictions
that the person is required to serve consecutively shall commence
from the time the person would otherwise have been released from
prison. If the new offenses are consecutive with each other, the
principal and subordinate terms shall be calculated as provided in
subdivision (a). This subdivision shall be applicable in cases of
convictions of more than one offense in the same or different
proceedings.
                                                           (d) When
the court imposes a prison sentence for a felony pursuant to Section
1170 or subdivision (b) of Section 1168, the court shall also impose,
in addition and consecutive to the offense of which the person has
been convicted, the additional terms provided for any applicable
enhancements. If an enhancement is punishable by one of three terms,
the court shall, in its discretion, impose the term that best serves
the interest of justice, and state the reasons for its sentence
choice on the record at the time of sentencing. The court shall also
impose any other additional term that the court determines in its
discretion or as required by law shall run consecutive to the term
imposed under Section 1170 or subdivision (b) of Section 1168. In
considering the imposition of the additional term, the court shall
apply the sentencing rules of the Judicial Council.
   (e) All enhancements shall be alleged in the accusatory pleading
and either admitted by the defendant in open court or found to be
true by the trier of fact.
   (f) When two or more enhancements may be imposed for being armed
with or using a dangerous or deadly weapon or a firearm in the
commission of a single offense, only the greatest of those
enhancements shall be imposed for that offense. This subdivision
shall not limit the imposition of any other enhancements applicable
to that offense, including an enhancement for the infliction of great
bodily injury.
   (g) When two or more enhancements may be imposed for the
infliction of great bodily injury on the same victim in the
commission of a single offense, only the greatest of those
enhancements shall be imposed for that offense. This subdivision
shall not limit the imposition of any other enhancements applicable
to that offense, including an enhancement for being armed with or
using a dangerous or deadly weapon or a firearm.
   (h) For any violation of an offense specified in Section 667.6,
the number of enhancements that may be imposed shall not be limited,
regardless of whether the enhancements are pursuant to this section,
Section 667.6, or some other provision of law. Each of the
enhancements shall be a full and separately served term. 
   (i) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2011, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2011, deletes or extends

all these convictions shall be the sum of the principal term, the
subordinate term, and any additional term imposed for applicable
enhancements for prior convictions, prior prison terms, and Section
12022.1. The principal term shall consist of the greatest term of
imprisonment imposed by the court for any of the crimes, including
any term imposed for applicable specific enhancements. The
subordinate term for each consecutive offense shall consist of
one-third of the middle term of imprisonment prescribed for each
other felony conviction for which a consecutive term of imprisonment
is imposed, and shall include one-third of the term imposed for any
specific enhancements applicable to those subordinate offenses.

offenses.
   (c) In the case of any person convicted of one or more felonies
committed while the person is confined in a state prison or is
subject to reimprisonment for escape from custody and the law either
requires the terms to be served consecutively or the court imposes
consecutive terms, the term of imprisonment for all the convictions
that the person is required to serve consecutively shall commence
from the time the person would otherwise have been released from
prison. If the new offenses are consecutive with each other, the
principal and subordinate terms shall be calculated as provided in
subdivision (a). This subdivision shall be applicable in cases of
convictions of more than one offense in the same or different
proceedings.

to Section 1170 or subdivision (b) of Section 1168, the court shall
also impose, in addition and consecutive to the offense of which the
person has been convicted, the additional terms provided for any
applicable enhancements. If an enhancement is punishable by one of
three terms, the court shall impose the middle term unless there are
circumstances in aggravation or mitigation, and state the reasons for
its sentence choice, other than the middle term, on the record at
the time of sentencing. The court shall also impose any other
additional term that the court determines in its discretion or as
required by law shall run consecutive to the term imposed under
Section 1170 or subdivision (b) of Section 1168. In considering the
imposition of the additional term, the court shall apply the
sentencing rules of the Judicial Council.
   (e) All enhancements shall be alleged in the accusatory pleading
and either admitted by the defendant in open court or found to be
true by the trier of fact.
   (f) When two or more enhancements may be imposed for being armed
with or using a dangerous or deadly weapon or a firearm in the

using a dangerous or deadly weapon or a firearm.
   (h) For any violation of an offense specified in Section 667.6,
the number of enhancements that may be imposed shall not be limited,
regardless of whether the enhancements are pursuant to this section,
Section 667.6, or some other provision of law. Each of the
enhancements shall be a full and separately served term.
