People v. Cook, E054307

Defendant's conviction and sentence for three counts of gross vehicular manslaughter is: 1) reversed and remanded in part, as to the findings on the great bodily injury enhancements under Penal Code section 12022.7(a) with respect to victims Giambra and Page because that provision prohibits imposition of the enhancement relative to any victim in a case in which the defendant has been convicted for manslaughter as to that victim; 2) affirmed in part, on the great bodily injury enhancement with respect to victim Valentine who was not the subject of a manslaughter conviction; and 3) affirmed in all other respects, where the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's petition for the release of juror information because defendant's showing fell short of good cause where the jurors' use of toy cars to reenact the collision was not an investigation that went beyond the evidence presented at trial.
