The following excerpt is from People v. Hedgecock, 214 Cal.App.3d 1082, 247 Cal.Rptr. 404 (Cal. App. 1988):
Our review of the entire record thus looks for substantial evidence to support the conclusions of the trial judge in denial of the new trial motion based on juror misconduct. When we find such substantial evidence, our inquiry ends and we affirm. (People v. Miranda (1987) 44 Cal.3d 57, 117, 241 Cal.Rptr. 594, 744 P.2d 1127.) Conversely, absent such substantial evidence, we reverse.
