--Proposition 66, which speeds up the appeals process, won with 50.9 percent of the vote.
--The competing Proposition 62, which would have abolished California’s death penalty, drew 46.1 percent.
That doesn't mean that Californians won't vote to abolish it sometime in the future.
But, for now, CA is a death penalty state and the time from conviction to execution should be shorter with the passage of Prop 66.My opinions only, with respect to all those whose opinions differ

What really bothers me about this case is how quick they were originally paroled or somehow got out of prison after their original crimes.
Look at how fast they were on the streets from when they were convicted.
WTH and why are they even being paroled or let out after committing kidnapping and other terrrible crimes and one of them even with underage girl.
They should not have been given any parole after so few years. One was out in 5 years and the other 10.
Gordon was also convicted of kidnapping in 2002, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Similarly, Cano had been convicted in an Orange County court in 2007 of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14, the court records state. He also was required to register as a sex offender for life.
The two men were on parole when they cut off their ankle bracelets in April 2012 and took a Greyhound bus to Las Vegas.

I hate to say this but he might get a new trial... he did not adequately represent himself. that is why I hate when they try to do so, like that puke mesiti in Stanislaus county. I hope he doesn't, but they cross all t's and dot all i's in DP cases.

I observed like conduct by defendants many times before I retired. It seldom failed that just as soon as they were tucked away in prison, they'd begin filing Rule 32s attempting to get sentences set aside, &/or a new trial. The inmate has law library privileges, form files, & access to eager-beaver law students &/or groups who just find it game to take on the system or undo sentences, etc. Time will tell.

It is so interesting to me when killers show remorse and want to plead guilty. It's as if they have a Jekyll and Hyde situation going on.Here to help. Here to love. Here to encourage.

‘You’re missing one’: Identity of Fifth Victim of Serial Killer Steven Gordon Revealed
"You're missing one."
That's how Detective Julissa Trapp of the Anaheim Police Department said she first learned that Steven Gordon might have one more victim. One she never knew existed.
Detective Trapp was investigating the death of 21-year-old Jarrae Estepp. Her body had been found at an Anaheim trash facility on March 14, 2014. After a month-long investigation, Gordon was arrested in connection with the murder. When Trapp interviewed Steven Gordon, she suspected he had killed three other women too: Kianna Jackson, Josephine "Monique" Vargas, and Martha Anaya. During the course of a 13-hour interview, Gordon confessed to murdering all four women, who had been working as prostitutes in Orange County, California.
He claimed he worked with a partner named Franc Cano. Cano has pleaded not guilty is awaiting trial.
Gordon told Detective Trapp something else in that police interview. There was one more victim -- a Jane Doe.
