Name: People v. Partida
Case #: B161356
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 8
Citation: 115 Cal.App.4th 270

The trial court erred in admitting cumulative and prejudicial gang evidence in a case in which the prosecution had not alleged a gang enhancement and where the murder victim was not a gang member. However, given the weight of other evidence supporting the defendant’s guilt, the error was harmless.
