People v. Bowman, D057467

Conviction and sentencing of defendant for robbery and false imprisonment are upheld where the trial court did not err in instructing the jury that: 1) defendant's silence in response to police questioning could be considered an adoptive admission, and 2) defendant's efforts to establish a false alibi could show consciousness of guilt.
