People v. Leon, No. B211679

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on January 29, 2010 9:03 AM

Conviction of defendant for murder and related crimes and sentence to an aggregate prison term of 145 years to life is affirmed for the most part but reversed in part where the evidence was insufficient to show beyond a reasonable doubt that defendant harbored the specific intent to kill the attempted murder victim.  Therefore, conviction for attempted murder is reversed and defendant's sentence is reduced by 40 years.
