People v. Newby, C057444

Conviction and sentence for aggravated mayhem, infliction of corporal injury on a cohabitant, battery, criminal threats, and grand theft are affirmed over claims that: 1) the trial court prejudicially erred in instructing the jury, pursuant to CALCRIM No. 800, that a "disfiguring injury may be permanent even if it can be repaired by medical procedures"; and 2) consecutive sentencing on a grand theft count contravened defendant's Sixth Amendment rights under Apprendi and its progeny.
