PEOPLE v. CROWE, B137930

The court's charge to the jury contained language which adequately conveyed that the defendant did not have to face an actual danger in order to uphold a claim of imperfect self-defense but instead only had to actually believe, even incorrectly and unreasonably, that he faced a danger, so use of CALJIC 5.51 would have been superfluous.
