People v. Golde, C053632

Conviction for assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury or with a deadly weapon and sentence enhancement based on a true finding of a prior serious felony conviction is affirmed in part and reversed in part and remanded where: 1) substantial evidence supported defendant's conviction for felony assault; 2) substantial evidence did not support a finding that defendant suffered a prior serious felony "strike" conviction for negligent discharge of firearm; 3) the trial court did not err in failing to instruct the jury on the elements of simple assault as a lesser included offense; and 4) the trial court did not err as to various CALCRIM jury instructions given.
