People v. Vang, D054343

In a conviction of defendants for assault by means of force likely to cause great bodily injury and a jury finding that the special allegation was true is affirmed where: 1) although the court erred in admitting expert opinion on defendant's knowledge and intent in response to two hypothetical questions, the error was harmless; 2) trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendants' motion in limine to bifurcate the gang enhancement allegations from the trial of the underlying assault; 3) trial court did not abuse its discretion in excluding certain evidence at issue; and 4) a defendant's probation condition regarding use of cell phone or paging device is modified.
