PEOPLE v. HERNANDEZ, B145238

Because record did not support the existence of good cause to remove a juror, who, having heard nearly all the evidence, was sympathetic to the defense, appellant was denied a trial by a fair and impartial jury; thus, conviction reversed, and double jeopardy bars retrial.
