People v. Flores, D047249

Convictions on 16 counts of lewd acts on a child and three counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child are reversed as the jury was not instructed defendant could not be found guilty unless all of the elements of the charged offenses were proved by the prosecutor beyond a reasonable doubt, and thus defendant was denied his federal constitutional right to a jury verdict of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
