What is the legal test for overturning a finding of insufficient sufficiency of evidence in a sexual assault case?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Oliver, C081847 (Cal. App. 2019):

" 'In assessing the sufficiency of the evidence, we review the entire record in the light most favorable to the judgment to determine whether it discloses evidence that is reasonable, credible, and of solid value such that a reasonable trier of fact could find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. [Citations.]' [Citations.] All conflicts in the evidence and questions of credibility are resolved in favor of the verdict, drawing every reasonable inference the jury could draw from the evidence. [Citation.] Reversal on this ground is unwarranted unless ' "upon no hypothesis whatever is there sufficient substantial evidence to support [the conviction]." ' [Citation.] This standard applies whether direct or circumstantial evidence is involved. [Citation.]" (People v. Cardenas (2015) 239 Cal.App.4th 220, 226-227.)
