People v. Zacarias, D049593

Conviction and sentence for kidnapping for financial gain are reversed as the vicarious liability doctrine applicable to conspiracies exists to extend the liability of those who are guilty of conspiracies to commit California crimes and not to commit federal crimes, and it could not be determined whether the jury relied on one of the legally viable theories on which it was instructed.
