Name: People v. Linn
Case #: B142261
Opinion Date: 07/25/2001
Division: 6
Citation: 90 Cal.App.4th 1354

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.
