                                      THIRD APPELLATE DISTRICT

THE PEOPLE,                                                                                  C074208

                   Plaintiff and Respondent,                                     (Super. Ct. No. 07F01299)



                   Defendant and Appellant.

         Defendant Kimberly Kay Knorr appeals the judgment and sentence of the trial
court claiming that the trial court miscalculated her presentence custody credits. As this
is defendant’s only claim on appeal and there is nothing in the record to indicate she first
sought correction of the alleged error in the trial court, we will dismiss the appeal.
         “No appeal shall be taken by the defendant from a judgment of conviction on the
ground of an error in the calculation of presentence custody credits, unless the defendant
first presents the claim in the trial court at the time of sentencing, or if the error is not
discovered until after sentencing, the defendant first makes a motion for correction of the
record in the trial court.” (Pen. Code, § 1237.1.) Thus, where the only claim raised is

miscalculation of presentence credits, in the absence of a noticed motion to the trial court
to correct the alleged miscalculation, we must dismiss the appeal. (People v. Clavel
103 Cal. App. 4th 516
, 519 (Clavel).)
       Here, the court issued a written order imposing sentence, without reference to the
calculation of presentence custody credits. That order invited parties to request a hearing
on the matter, but nothing in the record indicates any hearing was requested or had.
Thereafter, an amended abstract of judgment was entered awarding defendant 1,009 days
of credit (878 actual days and 131 local conduct days).
       Defendant contends this is a miscalculation of those credits, but she has not moved
the trial court to correct the alleged error as required by Penal Code section 1237.1. She
did, after filing the instant appeal, write a letter to the trial court requesting that it correct
the alleged miscalculation and prepare an amended abstract of judgment. However, this
informal procedure has been expressly rejected as failing to comply with the procedure
mandated by Penal Code section 1237.1. (Clavel, supra, 103 Cal.App.4th at p. 519.)
Therefore, defendant’s contention is not properly before this court.


       The appeal is dismissed.

                                                            HULL                    , Acting P. J.

We concur:

      MURRAY                  , J.
