California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Deanda, E053911 (Cal. App. 2013):

4. At best, we have found only two minor errors, which did not result in prejudice to appellant. "No reasonable possibility exists that the jury would have reached a different result absent any of the acknowledged or asserted errors under the applicable federal or state standard of review. [Citations.]" (People v. Houston (2012) 54 Cal.4th 1186, 1233.)
