People v. Tran, No. G036560
Defendant's murder and street terrorism convictions are affirmed where: 1) defendant's prior conviction for extortion was admissible to prove the charge of street terrorism against him; 2) a witness's statement that his sister had been executed did not necessarily implicate defendant; and 3) the trial court erred in using the same factor to both enhance defendant's sentence and to run it consecutively, but the error was harmless.
