People v. Ramirez, G038125

Conviction for drug crimes and gang participation is affirmed where: 1) trial court properly denied pretrial motion to sever the gang participation count from the drug counts and to bifurcate gang enhancements for a separate trial as there was a causal connection between the counts; and 2) there is substantial evidence to support the jury's conclusion that the drug offenses were sufficiently gang-related to support defendant's conviction for active gang participation, as well as the sentencing enhancements.
