Apr. 18, 2022 – People v. Vaughn (4th Dist., Div. 2, E073346)

The Court of Appeal declines to find that defendants forfeited their improper venue claim by not raising the issue in a pretrial writ petition, but concludes that any error was harmless and did not violate defendants’ federal constitutional rights. The court also holds that a defendant may be guilty of human trafficking of a minor and pimping a minor, as an aider and abettor, even if he did not know the victim was a minor.
