    Default One Act One Crime Doctrine in California

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: California

    What are California's laws when it comes to the "one act one crime" doctrine, or the equivalent? Does anyone know what the relevant code or case law is?

    This will give you a pretty good overview of how the Califonia courts view the issue.

    California Penal Code Section 654 (a)

    An act or omission that is punishable in different ways by different provisions of law shall be punished under the provision that provides for the longest potential term of imprisonment, but in no case shall the act or omission be punished under more than one provision. An acquittal or conviction and sentence under any one bars a prosecution for the same act or omission under any other.
