Case Conclusion Date:April 12, 2010
Outcome:Felony conviction reversed on appeal.
Description:The Court of Appeal agreed that the evidence was insufficient to support the true finding on the allegation that the defendant committed felony assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and reduced the finding to simple assault. The victim testified only that the minor punched her in the face. There was no evidence either of the amount of force used or of any injury.
