        Re: The People v. Rinehart, Case No. C074662
        Request for Publication

       Pursuant to California Rule of Court 8.1120, I write to request that the Court order slip
opinion issued in The People v. Rinehart (Case No. C074662) be certified for publication.

      Thank you for your consideration of this request.
