NOT TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE OFFICIAL REPORTS
California Rules of Court, rule 8.1115(a), prohibits courts and parties from citing or relying on opinions not certified for publication or ordered published, except as specified by rule 8.1115(b). This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.
On September 18, 2014, defendant, Natalie A. Vargas, pled no contest to receiving stolen property, a California driver's license. (Pen. Code, § 496, subd. (a).)1 She was placed on three years' formal probation. Defendant appeals from an April 8, 2016 order denying, without prejudice, her oral section 1170.18 resentencing petition. Defendant argued the driver's license was worth less than $950. (§ 496, subd. (a) as amended by Prop. 47, Gen. Elec. Nov. 4, 2014, § 9.) Defense counsel represented the cost to replace a California driver's license is $33, but she did not present any evidence to that effect. Nor was any other evidence of value presented. It was defendant's burden to present evidence the "reasonable and fair market value" (§ 496, subd. (a)) of the stolen property did not exceed $950. (People v. Romanowski (March 27, 2017, S231405) ___ Cal.5th ___, ___; People v. Johnson (2016) 1 Cal.App.5th 953, 962; People v. Hall (2016) 247 Cal.App.4th 1255, 1263.) Because defendant did not meet that burden, the trial court did not err in denying the petition without prejudice.
The order denying defendant's resentencing petition without prejudice is affirmed.
