Felony Sentencing 102 and 103 looks into the gun and gang enhancements, one-strike sex crimes, issues regarding consecutive and concurrent sentencing, and how to sentence in “mixed sentencing” cases, where the defendant is being sentenced to determinate and indeterminate sentences in the same proceeding.
