Name: People v. Chavez
Case #: B139931
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 3
Opinion Date: 05/31/2001
Subsequent History: Rev. granted 9/12/01 as S098775

(Editor’s note: Review granted) The defense of duress was not available to appellant for the crimes underlying a robbery-murder charge. Appellant failed to show that a threat made to her placed her in immediate and imminent danger, which is required for a duress defense. Therefore, it was not error for the trial court to have failed to instruct on the duress defense.
