Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 6
Opinion Date: 07/25/2001
Subsequent History: Rev. granted 10/31/01; depublished pending rev.

The trial court did not err in instructing that residential burglary could be committed if the person formed the intent to commit theft before he entered a room of an inhabited dwelling or the inhabited dwelling itself. Here the defendant was prosecuted on the theory that he committed only one burglary, either by entering the dwelling itself, or a particular room of it, with the requisite intent.
