Law School Case Brief

People v. Rehmeyer - 19 Cal. App. 4th 1758, 24 Cal. Rptr. 2d 321 (1993)

Rule:

When the evidence justifies a reasonable inference of felonious intent, the verdict will not be disturbed on appeal.

Facts:

Defendant was convicted of residential burglary, unlawful entry for indecent exposure, and attempted felony indecent exposure. On appeal, defendant argued that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions. He also expressed that he was improperly charged with burglary when the underlying offense was indecent exposure.

Issue:

Is there sufficient evidence to support defendant’s convictions for residential burglary and indecent exposure?

Answer:

Yes.

Conclusion:

The court held that there was substantial evidence to support the finding that he had the requisite specific intent to indecently expose himself. The court also held that defendant had the requisite felonious specific intent for burglary that did not preclude a conviction for burglary, that burglary was not a lesser included offense of unlawful entry for indecent exposure, and that there was no impropriety in the charging procedure or the result.
