April 1st, 2014


It is not necessary to instruct on defendant’s intent to have a third person convey a threat to the victim, or that the defendant must know that the person with whom he has spoken is the victim’s “immediate family,” (People v. McPheeters (2013) 218 Cal. App. 4th 124.) when the prosecution’s theory is that the defendant’s statement was part of a pattern of conduct designed to threaten the victim.
