People v. Parks

Supreme Court of California
Jul 1, 1872
44 Cal. 105 (Cal. 1872)

Opinion

         Appeal from the County Court of Yolo County.

         The defendant was convicted of grand larceny, and appealed.

         COUNSEL

          S. G. Harper, for Appellant.

          J. C. Ball, for Respondent.


         JUDGES: Wallace, C. J.

         OPINION

          WALLACE, Judge

         The indictment alleges the offense to have been committed in the County of Yolo. The defendant pleaded not guilty, and it was, of course, incumbent upon the prosecution to prove the locus delicti. This was not done. The evidence conduces to establish that the robbery charged was committed, if at all, at the drinking saloon of Stroback, but there is nothing in the record which tends in the slightest degree to show that this saloon was situated in the County of Yolo.

         Judgment reversed, and cause remanded for a new trial.
