People v. McPike, A122030

Conviction of defendant for misdemeanor petty theft and a felony count of receiving stolen property is reversed because defendant cannot be convicted of stealing and receiving the same property. Defendant's conviction for receiving stolen property is affirmed as there is no practical or policy reason to deny the effect of the jury's verdict on the greater of the two offenses.
