Does Mayhem Require “Great Bodily Injury”
August 24th, 2015


People v. Santana (2013) 56 Cal. 4th 999,1009, did not disapprove the cases relied upon by CC 801. Thus, defense counsel should rely on the cases cited in CC 801, and cases cited in Santana, and argue that the jury be instructed that mayhem does require “great bodily injury.” (CCJICH § 5:4, p. 262.)
