California, United States of America
The following excerpt is from People v. Taylor, E059345 (Cal. App. 2014):
A trial court's error in failing to elucidate its reasons for a sentence choice is only reversible if there is a reasonable probability that a different result would be reached on remand. (People v. Sanchez (1994) 23 Cal.App.4th 1680, 1688.) We find no such probability here. Hence, it follows also that trial counsel's failure to insist on a statement of reasons was not prejudicial to defendant.
The judgment is affirmed.
