California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Stephen, C059467 (Cal. App. 9/22/2009), C059467 (Cal. App. 2009):

In evaluating a criminal case against an attack on the sufficiency of the evidence, we determine from the entire record whether a reasonable trier of fact could find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. (People v. Johnson (1980) 26 Cal.3d 557, 576.) "In this process we must view the evidence in the light most favorable to the judgment and presume in favor of the judgment the existence of every fact the trier of fact could reasonably deduce from the evidence." (People v. Johnson (1993) 6 Cal.4th 1, 38.)
