Supreme Court of California

People v. Johnson, S093235

In this case, defendant was convicted of first degree murder with special circumstances of robbery murder, burglary murder, and carjacking murder, as well as first degree burglary, first degree robbery, and carjacking. The jury also found that defendant personally used a deadly and dangerous weapon and that the victims as 65 years old or older. After a penalty trial, the jury returned a verdict of death, and the court imposed the sentence. The judgment is affirmed, where: 1) the cumulative effect of the asserted errors was not prejudicial because there were no actual errors to accumulate; and 2) the California death penalty scheme does not violate equal protection and does not violate international law.
