CC 852 Equivalent To CJ 250.02 Re: Other Crimes
March 1st, 2014


People v. Reyes (2008) 160 Cal. App. 4th 246, 251, noted that CJ 2.50.02 had been upheld numerous times as adequately explaining how the jury should consider other crimes. Reyes concluded that the reasoning of cases upholding the CJ instruction applied equally to CC 852. “In fact [CC 852] is expressed in clearer language and makes more certain the manner in which such evidence may or may not be used by the jury.”
