Name: People v. Braxton
Case #: A096083
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 1 DCA
Division: 5
Opinion Date: 11/04/2002
Subsequent History: 4/23/03: Review granted
Summary

The trial court erred in refusing defendant’s oral motion for a new trial, despite allegations of jury misconduct. The motion was timely because it was made before judgment (sentencing) and counsel offered three juror declarations in support of the motion, although he was also asking for more time to investigate.
