People v. Long, H033197

Trial court's conviction of a Vietnamese defendant for first degree robbery and rape of a Vietnamese prostitute, imposition of a 14-year sentence, and order requiring defendant to register as a sex offender, are reversed as, although there was substantial evidence that the victim, by socializing with a friend and eating meals, used hotel rooms as living quarters, thereby inhabiting the rooms at the time defendant robbed her, there is no evidence in the record substantiating the prosecutor's peremptory challenge against a Vietnamese prospective juror.
