People v. Zurinaga, B184288

In case where prosecutor argued to the jury that defendants' robbery of nine college students in their residence was equivalent to the terrible events of 9/11, using elaborate displays of the airlines and victims, and discussing the victims' phone calls to loved ones, defendants' convictions and sentences for robbery and related crimes are affirmed based on the main holding that the prosecutor's conduct did not so infect the trial with unfairness as to make defendants' convictions a denial of due process.
