People v. Franklin, A135607

Defendant's conviction of first degree murder and sentence to a mandatory term of 50 years to life in prison is affirmed, where: 1) the trial court did not err in jury instructions or evidentiary rulings; and 2) any potential constitutional infirmity in his sentence has been cured by the subsequently enacted Penal Code section 3051, which affords youth offenders a parole hearing sooner than had they been an adult.
