File It Under Puss

Segment 1
Jenny Pratt & Curtis Croft

Statute of Limitations in California: In California, there is no SOL for any crime punishable by life imprisonment and/or death (Cal. Pen. Code 799).Attempted murder can be punishable by life imprisonment, if it is an attempt at "willful, deliberate, and premeditated murder." (Cal. Pen. Code 664). What constitutes "willful, deliberate, and premeditated murder" is defined in Cal. Pen. Code 189. Honestly, I think it would be a stretch for a DA to get a conviction in this case using these guidelines, which state as follows:All murder which is perpetrated by means of a destructive device or explosive, a weapon of mass destruction, knowing use of ammunition designed primarily to penetrate metal or armor, poison, lying in wait, torture, or by any other kind of willful, deliberate, and premeditated killing, or which is committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to perpetrate, arson, rape, carjacking, robbery, burglary, mayhem, kidnapping, train wrecking, or any act punishable under Section 206, 286, 288, 288a, or 289, or any murder which is perpetrated by means of discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle, intentionally at another person outside of the vehicle with the intent to inflict death, is murder of the first degree. All other kinds of murders are of the second degree… To prove the killing was "deliberate and premeditated," it shall not be necessary to prove the defendant maturely and meaningfully reflected upon the gravity of his or her act. If the perp was charged with anything but attempted 1st degree murder, the SOL appears to be six years (Cal. Pen. Code 800). Obviously, this would have long since expired in the Pratt case. (
