People v. Jenan, F049153

In a case involving charges of offering a false or forged instrument for filing and sending a threatening letter with intent to extort, a conviction is reversed where the trial court denied defendant his right to counsel by failing to appoint counsel at a preliminary hearing and by forcing self-representation on him at a time when his mental competence was at issue.
