Conviction for robbery is reversed where trial court erred in denying defendant's motion under Batson and Wheeler based on the prosecutor's exercise of peremptory challenges on Spanish-speaking jurors in violation of defendant's rights to equal protection and to a jury drawn from a representative cross-section of the community.
