People v. Zendejas, 260892

Convictions of first degree robbery with personal use of a knife and while a principal was armed, Penal Code sections 211, 213(a)(1)(A), and 12022(a)(1) and (b)(1), criminal threats involving the personal use of a knife, sections 422 and 12022(b)(1), false imprisonment with personal use of a knife, sections 236 and 12022(b)(1), assault with a deadly weapon, section 245(a)(1), and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, section 245(a)(4), are affirmed over defendant's meritless claims that: 1) her trial with co-defendant undermined her ability to follow the proceedings, participate in her defense, and communicate with counsel in violation of her state and federal constitutional rights; 2) the trial court's abused of discretion in refusing to consider appellant's motion for separate trials requires reversal; and 3) the erroneous denial of her Marsden motion prejudicially violated her rights to counsel and a fair trial.
