How has the fact of defendant's probation been excluded from the facts of the crime?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Turner, A140213 (Cal. App. 2014):

Defendant was observed entering and leaving the victim's home, was captured fleeing from the scene with stolen jewelry in his possession, and was identified by his clothing and general appearance at an in-field show-up within minutes of the offense. There is no reasonable likelihood that the outcome of trial would have differed had the fact of defendant's probation been excluded. (People v. Watson (1956) 46 Cal.2d 818, 836.)

The judgment is affirmed.
