People v. Gunter, B196075

Conviction for second degree robbery is affirmed over defendant's claims that: 1) the evidence at trial was insufficient to establish he used force or fear to take property from the immediate presence of the victim, a mall security guard; and 2) the trial court's imposition of the five-year upper term sentence for robbery based on factual determinations made by the trial judge, not the jury, violated his federal constitutional right to a jury trial.
