Name: People v. Jaime
Case #: C096022
Opinion Date: 05/20/2023
Attorney: William Holzer
Summary

The Court of Appeal found the trial court prejudicially erred when it concluded the People’s peremptory challenge was valid because the prosecutor provided no evidence to rebut the presumptively invalid reasons for exercising the challenge (the juror’s “negative experience with law enforcement” and her “close relationship with people who have been convicted of a crime.”) The judgment was reversed and the case remanded for a new trial.
