People v. Roach

Supreme Court of California
Jul 1, 1874
48 Cal. 382 (Cal. 1874)

Opinion

         Appeal from the County Court, Mendocino County.

         The defendant was indicted for a crime alleged in the indictment to have been committed in the County of Mendocino. He was convicted, and appealed.

         COUNSEL

          J. B. Lamar and W. W. Pendegast, for the Appellant.

         The Attorney-General, for the People.


         JUDGES: Niles, J. Mr. Justice Rhodes did not express an opinion.

         OPINION

          NILES, Judge

         The record purports to set forth " substantially all the evidence given at the trial." There was no evidence whatever tending to show that the offense was committed in the county of Mendocino, as charged. This omission is fatal. (People v. Parks, 44 Cal. 105; People v. York, 9 Cal. 421.)

         Judgment reversed and cause remanded for a new trial.
