P. v. Baima
A jury convicted Corey Joel Baima of spousal battery (Pen. Code, 273.5, subd. (a)), false imprisonment effected by violence (Pen. Code, 236; 237, subd. (a)), assault with a firearm (Pen. Code, 245, subd. (a)(2)), and criminal threats (Pen. Code, 422). The jury also found to be true allegations defendant personally used a firearm in committing the charged offenses. (Pen. Code, 12022.5, subd. (a).) Defendant contends the trial court erroneously certified a police investigator as an expert witness on domestic violence. He also argues the court erred in admitting several instances of uncharged conduct under Evidence Code section 1109 establishing his propensity for domestic violence, challenges numerous other evidentiary rulings, and contends the trial court erred by failing to declare a mistrial after the jury appeared to be deadlocked on the assault with a firearm count. As Court explain below, defendants arguments are without merit, and Court therefore affirm the judgment.
