People v. Kelly, E042607

Following a remand wherein the trial court conducted a hearing to allow the prosecutor to state her reasons for exercising contested peremptory challenges, determined that the prosecutor's use of peremptory challenges were proper, and reinstated a judgment against the defendant for his criminal offenses, the ruling is affirmed over claims that: 1) the hearing was conducted in a manner so fundamentally unfair as to render it void; and 2) the recent decision in Snyder v. Louisiana (2008) implies support for all the procedural deficits existing at the hearing at issue.
