People v. Gray, B192564

In a case where the trial court erred in modifying CALCRIM No. 316 (impeaching a witness with a prior felony conviction) to allow the jury to determine if the witness's felony conviction was one "involving moral turpitude," which the court defined as "involving dishonesty," conviction and sentence for residential burglary are affirmed where the instructional error was not prejudicial under the facts of this case.
