People v. Zaun, 078962

Convictions for attempted burglary were affirmed where: 1) defendant 'cased' homes with co-conspirators for future burglary by knocking on doors to see if a house was occupied; and 2) based on this pattern, a jury could reasonably conclude that specific intent sufficient for conviction was formed when they knocked the door of a house and then abandoned when someone answered.
