Name: People v. Braxton
Case #: A096083
Opinion Date: 11/04/2002
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 1 DCA
Division: 5
Citation: 106 Cal.App.4th 137

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.
