  3. Niggas always wanna say “Locs ain’t in Perris no more. False. Actually they ARE in Perris. And the are Allies WITH P.M.V. Weak minds are easily fooled to think that a person banging outside of their original hood are cowards for running away. No they’re not. If youd drop your pride and look at what Perris Locs did, they created Allies and now doubled and even tripled their size from Mead Valley, to South Perris, Menifee and Hemet. They created an Army. But Neighborhood is only sectioned on the Eastside. They completely have been shut off because they cant move anywhere else but North to Moreno Valley, where they would be feauding with Southside Moval and some Bloods. Typical failure for not being street smart. It’s not that hard to run a gang. Tell Blue and Tuff, B.G, Maddog, and all the other gangs that if they want to become a big ass set that would make even the Riva gangs scared and have Perris on the map, click up with the Locs and try to have a discussion and drop the beef.

  5. I cannot believe what the African American community has become. I am ashamed of you guys giving me a bad name. You should stop fighting of some bullshit. I am now a doctor and I make the African American community very proud of who I am. It was very hard to get into USD thanks to all of you who has given such a shitty name. And for those who loves their mom ask yourselves if she is proud on what you have become. Find Jesus in your heart and giver the black community a better name instead of some criminals.

    1. You are 1,000 percent correct. This is what I keep telling these stupid Niggers but they won’t listen. Their whole life is centered around Crack and killing other Niggers. What a bunch of dummy assholes. You are correct and congratulations in becoming a Doctor. Now, you need to come into these Shithole Ghettos and examine what’s wrong with all these Niggers’ Heads. LOL

    1. And? You want a cookie or a gold star? All that bangin and shit dumb af. Why can’t Niggas have unity?? If NH cliqued back up with PL’s, they could own the whole damn game!

    1. Man, do something positive instead of being on the internet arguing about what side of town you’re from. Why do we have to prove the white man right and act like NIGGERS? When we should be acting like the Kings and Queens we came from in Africa. Keep it true to yourself G, and stop spewing out sich ignorance and hatred. There should be no 187 on nobody from Neighborhood or Locs. There shouldn’t be any hoods at all. Only a fool would fight over a complexion of a ray of light through your eyes.

    IN THE COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

    FOURTH APPELLATE DISTRICT

    DIVISION TWO

    THE PEOPLE,

    Plaintiff and Respondent,

    v.

    MICHAEL BOWLING,

    Defendant and Appellant.

    E045557

    (Super.Ct.No. SWF023106)

    OPINION

    APPEAL from the Superior Court of Riverside County. Rodney L. Walker, Judge. Modified and affirmed with directions.

    Brett Harding Duxbury, under appointment by the Court of Appeal, for Defendant and Appellant.

    Edmund G. Brown, Jr., Attorney General, Dane R. Gillette, Chief Assistant Attorney General, Gary W. Schons, Assistant Attorney General, Rhonda Cartwright-Ladendorf, and Christine Levingston Bergman, Deputy Attorneys General, for Plaintiff and Respondent.

    After the trial court granted his Penal Code section 1118.1[1]motion and dismissed three counts of attempted murder, six criminal street gang enhancements, and two great bodily injury allegations, a jury found Michael Bowling (hereafter defendant) guilty of three counts of attempted manslaughter, three counts of assault with a firearm, and made true findings on two great bodily injury allegations and a personal use of a firearm allegation. Defendant later admitted the allegations that he had served three prior terms in prison, and also had previously been convicted of one prior serious felony and one strike. The trial court sentenced defendant to serve a total term of 33 years eight months in prison.

    In this appeal, defendant contends he was denied the effective assistance of counsel because his trial attorney did not move to strike the gang evidence after the trial court dismissed the gang enhancements. Defendant also claims the trial court violated defendants right to a jury trial because the trial court failed to instruct the jury on the burden and standard of proof pertinent to defendants claim of self-defense and defense of others. Finally, defendant contends, and the Attorney General concedes, that the trial court erred when it imposed a full-term great bodily injury enhancement on a subordinate determinate term sentence.

    We conclude, as we explain below, that the Attorney Generals concession on the sentencing issue is appropriate and therefore we will modify defendants sentence accordingly. Defendants other issues lack merit. Therefore, we will affirm the judgment as modified in all other respects.

    FACTS

    The facts are not in dispute. The only issue at trial was the identity of the person who fired shots at a group of people leaving a high school graduation party in the early morning hours of May 14, 2005. The graduate, Virgil Meakins, hosted the party on the evening of May 13, 2005, at the home of his mother. Around 1:00 a.m., as the party was breaking up, Osbert Grey and several other people including defendant, attempted to join the festivities. Grey pushed Meakinss sister as she tried to keep the group from gaining entrance. Several of the invited guests took offense; one of them, a boy referred to by the nickname Foolish, attacked Grey and beat him unconscious. Foolish and his brother then dragged Grey into the middle of the street where Foolish stomped on Greys head twice. When Meakins told him to stop, Foolish left Grey in the middle of the street and then got involved in one of the many other fights that were taking place in the street that night.

    Meakins was trying to get his family in the house when he saw a group of people carry Grey from the street and leave him on the sidewalk. Meakins also saw defendant talk with a male, who then ran to a nearby car, and when he returned to defendant, withdrew something from the waistband of his pants which he handed to defendant. Meakins then saw defendant walk toward a car in which several people were attempting to drive away. After a few steps, defendant fired a gun at the vehicle. Defendant fired a total of 10 shots, and hit three people: Damion Salter, Ranesha Hicks, and Steven Goines. Meakins identified defendant as the shooter at an in-field show up, and then again from a photo lineup, and finally in court during trial.

    Damion Salter was running down the street when he was hit in the ankle by a bullet. Salter did not see the shooter and had never met defendant. Ranesha Hicks was hit in the thigh by a bullet as she was getting into a car. She did not know defendant. A bullet hit Steven Goines in the back of his calf.[2]

    After firing the shots, defendant put Grey in a car and drove off. A deputy sheriff pulled defendant over and the deputy called for an ambulance after he saw Grey unconscious in the back seat of the car. While waiting for help, defendant paced and yelled profanities.

    Detective Robert Kwan testified in pertinent part that he told defendant the results of a gunshot residue test of defendants hands was positive even though at the time he made the statement the detective did not have the actual test results. At the police station, defendant told his girlfriend that the test came back positive, but he did not know how that could have happened because he had scrubbed his hands and urinated on them. Unbeknownst to defendant, that conversation was videotaped. The videotape was played during trial, and the jury was provided with a transcript of the audio recording.

    DISCUSSION

    We address defendants claims according to the order they are set out in his opening brief.

    1.

    INEFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE OF COUNSEL CLAIM

    As previously noted, defendant contends he was denied his Sixth Amendment right to the effective assistance of counsel because after the trial court granted defendants section 1118.1 motion and dismissed the gang enhancements, his trial attorney did not move to strike the gang evidence that had been introduced during the prosecutions case-in-chief. In order to establish a claim of ineffective assistance of counsel, defendant must demonstrate (1) counsels performance was deficient in that it fell below an objective standard of reasonableness under prevailing professional norms, and (2) counsels deficient representation prejudiced the defendant, i.e., there is a reasonable probability that, but for counsels failings, defendant would have obtained a more favorable result. [Citations.] A reasonable probability is one that is enough to undermine confidence in the outcome. [Citations.] (Peoplev. Dennis (1998) 17 Cal.4th 468, 540-541, citing, among other cases, Stricklandv. Washington (1984) 466 U.S. 668.)

    The gang evidence at issue in this case consists of the testimony of Daniel Ponder, a Riverside County Deputy Sheriff assigned to the county regional gang task force, who testified in pertinent part that defendant is a member of the Neighborhood Pimp Mob, which is a criminal street gang in the north section of the City of Perris that was started by members of a Compton-area Crip gang who had migrated into Riverside County. The deputy based his testimony on law enforcement contacts with defendant in both 2004 and 2006 in which defendant admitted his gang membership. The deputy testified that Osbert Grey is also a self-admitted member of the Neighborhood Pimp Mob. Grey uses Swift and OJ as his gang monikers.[3] Deputy Ponder also expressed the opinion that defendants act of shooting people at the party was done to avenge the attack on Osbert Grey. According to the deputy, someone at the party reportedly heard someone yell Neighborhood Crip.

    In arguing trial counsels performance was deficient, defendant acknowledges that the gang evidence was relevant to show motive, and that the trial court also instructed the jury that the evidence could be considered only for that limited purpose. In defendants view the relevance is tangential because defendants motive in firing the gun was obvioushis friend Osbert Grey had been beaten to an unconscious pulp by the other partygoers. The evidence is also highly tangential according to defendant because the gang evidence was cumulative to common experience, namely that a young man might react violently in response to seeing his friend beaten to a pulp. In other words, defendant contends trial counsel should have objected and moved to strike the gang evidence under Evidence Code section 352 because it was cumulative, and in any event the probative value of that evidence was substantially outweighed by its potential for prejudice.

    In order to show that trial counsels performance was deficient, defendant must show that the trial court would have sustained an objection under Evidence Code section 352 and as a result would have stricken the gang evidence. Trial counsels failure to make a futile objection does not constitute deficient performance. (People v. Diaz (1992) 3 Cal.4th 495, 562.) Defendant has not made the necessary showing. Instead he asserts, There is no question that a motion to strike the gang evidence from the jurors consideration would have been granted after the trial court dismissed the gang allegations. We are not so sanguine and under the circumstances of this case must conclude that defense counsels failure to make the motion did not constitute deficient performance. Accordingly, we must further conclude that defendant has not met his burden to demonstrate ineffective assistance of counsel.

    2.

    DUE PROCESS CLAIM

    Defendant contends the trial court gave inadequate jury instructions on the burden of proof and standard of proof on the issue of self-defense as it relates to voluntary manslaughter, and as a result violated defendants due process right to have a jury resolve all disputed factual issues. We conclude, for reasons we now explain, that the instructions viewed as a whole clearly conveyed the pertinent principles to the jury.

    We note at the outset that during the discussion of jury instructions, defense counsel asked the trial court to give an instruction something along the lines of [then CALJIC No.] 5.15, the burden of proof regarding justification or excuse . . . so that it indicates that the burden is on the People even when the charge is manslaughter or assault. The trial court agreed and expressed the view that the principle is included in the jury instructions: The burden is to prove that the attempted killing was unlawful and not justifiable. Its in the instructions. When defense counsel indicated that he could not find that language in the murder, attempted murder, or manslaughter instructions, the trial court responded that the language was in the self-defense instructions but then assured defense counsel that if the trial court could not find the language in the agreed-upon instructions, the trial court would make sure to add it. Before actually instructing the jury, the trial court informed defense counsel that the language in the jury instructions [is] not exactly the language that you wanted. But its that the assault be both unlawful and justified [sic]. If you read carefully, youll find it. It doesnt make specific reference to the Peoples burden. But its in there. And its enough to satisfy, I think, your purposes. The trial court then asked if defense counsel had [a]nything else, and defense counsel said, No.

    The trial courts instructions in this case told the jury that, Attempted voluntary manslaughter is described as follows: Every person who unlawfully attempts without malice aforethought to kill another human being is guilty of the crime of attempted voluntary manslaughter. And this is a violation of Penal Code Sections 664 and 192(a) of the Penal Code. This is a crime charged as a felony here. [] Voluntary manslaughter is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice aforethought. There is no malice aforethought if the attempted killing occurred upon a sudden quarrel or heat of passion or in the actual but unreasonable belief in the necessity to defend oneself or another person against imminent peril to life or great bodily injury. [] In order to prove this crime, each of the following elements must be proved: First, a direct but ineffectual act was done by one person towards killing another human being; and that person had the specific intent to kill the other person; and, three, the actions taken to kill were unlawful. (Italics added.) The trial court further instructed that, An attempt to kill is lawful if done in lawful self-defense or defense of others. The trial court also instructed in connection with the assault charges that, A willful application of physical force upon the person of another is not unlawful when done in lawful self-defense or defense of others. [] The People have the burden to prove that the application of physical force was not in lawful self-defense or defense of others. If you have a reasonable doubt that the application of physical force was lawful, you must find the defendant not guilty.

    In addition to the above quoted instructions, the trial court gave CALJIC No. 2.90 on the presumption of innocence and reasonable doubt, in general, and CALJIC No. 2.91 on the prosecutions burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt: The burden is on the People to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is the person who committed the crime with which hes charged. If after considering the circumstances of the identification and any other evidence in this case you have a reasonable doubt whether the defendant was the person who committed the crime, you must give the defendant the benefit of the doubt and find him not guilty.

    Jury instructions must be viewed as a whole and not in isolation in order to determine whether there is a reasonable likelihood the jury understood the instructions in a manner that violated defendants rights. (See People v. Davison (1995) 32 Cal.App.4th 206, 212, citing People v. Warren (1988) 45 Cal.3d 471, 487, and People v. McPeters (1992) 2 Cal.4th 1148, 1191.) Although the trial courts instruction on voluntary manslaughter did not expressly tell the jury that the prosecution has the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the killing was not in self-defense or in defense of others, viewed as a whole, the instructions conveyed that principle to the jury. The instructions in this case advised the jury that unlawfulness of the killing is an element of the crime of manslaughter, that the prosecution has the burden to prove the elements of the crimes, and that the prosecutions burden is to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In this case it is not reasonably likely the jury understood the instructions to mean that defendant had the burden of proof on self-defense. (Estelle v. McGuire (1991) 502 U.S. 62, 72.) Accordingly, we must reject defendants claim of instructional error.

    3.

    SENTENCING CLAIM

    Defendant contends, and the Attorney General concedes that the trial court incorrectly imposed a full-term great bodily injury enhancement on a consecutive subordinate determinate term sentence. In particular, the trial court identified count 1 as the principal term. In sentencing defendant on the voluntary manslaughter conviction in count 3, the trial court imposed a consecutive subordinate term of one year, i.e., one-third the middle term of three years, which the trial court doubled to two years under the three strikes law. The trial court then imposed the enhancements: a consecutive term of 16 months (one-third the middle term) on the firearm enhancement under section 12022.5, subdivision (a), and a consecutive term of three years on the great bodily injury enhancement under section 12022.7, subdivision (a). The trial court should have imposed one-third the three-year term, or one year, on the great bodily injury enhancement because the enhancement was imposed on a count for which the trial court imposed the subordinate term. ( 1170.1, subd. (a); see also People v. Felix (2000) 22 Cal.4th 651, 655.) We will modify the sentence on count 3, accordingly.

    DISPOSITION

    Defendants sentence is modified by reducing the three-year term on the section 12022.7, subdivision (a) great bodily injury enhancement imposed on count 3 to a term of one year. As modified, the judgment is affirmed. The trial court is directed to prepare an amended abstract of judgment that reflects the modification to defendants sentence on count 3, and to forward copies of that amended abstract to the appropriate agencies.

    [3]During the videotaped conversation between defendant and his girlfriend defendant expressed regret over the decisions he had made in his life and then said, I shoulda just hopped in the car and left instead of trying to get swift. Presumably swift is a reference to Osbert Grey.

    OPINION
    RICHLI, Acting P.J.
    Defendant and appellant Bryan Edward Spencer pled guilty to possession of marijuana for sale (Health & Saf. Code, § 11359; count 1) and actively participating in a criminal street gang (Pen. Code, § 186.22, subd. (a); count 2). Defendant also admitted he had suffered one prior serious and violent felony conviction. (Pen. Code, §§ 667, subds. (c), (e)(1), 1170.12, subd. (c)(1).) In addition, defendant admitted violating his probation in case No. SWF022506, where he had pled guilty to transporting or selling marijuana (Health & Saf. Code, § 11360) and had admitted the same strike. He agreed to plead guilty on the trial court’s indication that it would sentence him to four years in state prison. Defendant was subsequently sentenced to four years in state prison with credit for time served. Defendant’s sole contention on appeal is that the trial court erred in failing to inquire into the factual basis for the plea in count 2.1 We reject this contention and affirm the judgment.

    FACTUAL AND PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND2
    In March 2008, Stanley Allison and Ayo Hullet went to a Market Plus store in Perris. Inside the store, a man known by the gang moniker “Blue” bumped into Allison, and the two exchanged words about their respective gangs and “gang issues.” Blue, who was later identified as defendant, claimed his gang was the Neighborhood Perris Crips (NPC). In response, Allison claimed his gang as Perris Loc. Before leaving, defendant threatened to beat up Allison.
    Defendant drove away in a lifted blue Chevrolet Tahoe sports utility vehicle (SUV) with large rims. As Allison and Hullet walked through a field near the store, they saw the SUV. Someone from the SUV said, “Hood, this is my hood,” and then several shots were fired from the rear passenger window. Allison told his mother that “Blue” had shot at him.
    Riverside County Deputy Probation Officer Delosreyes and Senior Investigator Nicklo with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office gang task force were assigned to investigate the case because the victims were on probation. In April 2008, Nicklo and Delosreyes went to the Omega Program, which was in the same strip mall as the Market Plus store, to speak with defendant about the shooting. In the parking lot, near the Omega Program, Nicklo saw a blue Chevrolet Tahoe SUV with large tires and tinted windows.
    Upon contacting defendant, Nicklo asked him about the shooting, the Chevrolet Tahoe, and his gang membership. Defendant denied being involved in the shooting and denied owning the SUV or being inside it. Defendant admitted that he had been a NPC gang member for 10 years but claimed to be currently inactive. On his person, defendant had a several hundred dollars in cash rolled up and bound by a rubber band but admitted that he did not have a job.
    After questioning defendant, Nicklo went outside to look at the SUV. Two Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene to assist. Ecstasy pills were found behind the door covering the gas cap. In addition, as Nicklo walked around the front of the SUV, he smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from the front grill area on the driver’s side. The SUV was subsequently towed to the sheriff’s department and searched. Under the hood, officers found two and a half pounds of marijuana, an amount consistent with possession for sale. No paraphernalia used to smoke marijuana was located in the SUV. The officers also found items associated with defendant.
    Investigator Nicklo testified as a gang expert. He explained that the NPC was an active gang in Riverside County, that its territory was in Perris, that it had more than 20 members, and that its color was light blue. The Market Plus store was located in NPC territory, and defendant had been involved in a gang-related argument at the Market Plus store about a month prior to finding the marijuana in the SUV. NPC’s rival gang is the Perris Locs gang. NPC’s primary activities are assaults and narcotics sales. Investigator Nicklo concluded that defendant, who was known by his gang moniker “Blue,” was an active member of the NPC gang. Defendant had several NPC gang tattoos on his body and had admitted gang membership several times, both in the past and when he was arrested. Investigator Nicklo concluded that a gang member selling two and a half pounds of marijuana or shooting at a rival gang would benefit his gang. At the time of the shooting, a Perris Loc gang member was in NPC territory.
    Following the preliminary hearing, an information was filed on November 5, 2009, charging defendant with possession of marijuana for sale for the benefit of, or in association with, a criminal street gang; actively participating in a criminal street gang; and negligently discharging a firearm for the benefit of, or in association with, a criminal street gang. The information further alleged that defendant had suffered one prior serious and violent felony conviction.
    On August 13, 2010, the trial court granted defendant’s motion to dismiss the gang enhancement allegation attached to count 1 pursuant to Penal Code section 995.
    On December 10, 2010, the trial court granted the People’s motion to dismiss count 3 in the interest of justice.
    On February 7, 2011, defendant agreed to plead guilty on the trial court’s indication that it would sentence him to four years in state prison. Defendant subsequently pled guilty to counts 1 and 2 and admitted the prior strike allegation. He also admitted violating his probation in case No. SWF022506. The trial court found the plea and admissions to be free and voluntary but failed to inquire into the factual basis for the plea as to both counts.
    On March 1, 2011, defendant was sentenced to a total term of four years in state prison with credit of six days for times served as follows: the middle term of two years on count 1, doubled to four years due to the prior strike allegation and a concurrent term of two years on count 2, doubled to four years due to the prior strike.
    II
    DISCUSSION
    Defendant contends the court failed to inquire into the factual basis of his plea as to count 2 and, therefore, his guilty plea as to that count must be vacated. We acknowledge that the court did not inquire into the factual basis of defendant’s plea. Nonetheless, as we explain below, defendant’s argument fails.
    “[Penal Code] [s]ection 1192.5 provides that for a conditional plea of guilty or no contest, the trial court is required to `cause an inquiry to be made of the defendant to satisfy itself that the plea is freely and voluntarily made, and that there is a factual basis for the plea.'” (People v. Holmes (2004) 32 Cal.4th 432, 438, italics added; accord, People v. Hoffard (1995) 10 Cal.4th 1170, 1180-1182 (Hoffard).) A “conditional plea,” as that term is used in this context, is a plea as described in Penal Code section 1192.5: an agreement between the prosecution and the defense that is approved by the court. (Hoffard, at p. 1181.) “The first paragraph of [Penal Code] section 1192.5 authorizes, for all but certain listed felonies, a plea of guilty, specifying the manner in which the court shall exercise its sentencing or other posttrial powers. The second paragraph provides that when `the plea’ is accepted by the prosecutor and approved by the court, the defendant cannot be sentenced to a punishment more severe than that specified by the plea. The third paragraph[] . . . contains the factual-basis requirement.” (Ibid., italics added.) Thus, the type of plea to which the factual-basis requirement applies “can only be the conditional plea made pursuant to the first paragraph and accepted and approved pursuant to the second paragraph.” (Ibid., italics added.)
    Contrary to defendant’s claim in his reply brief, the plea in the instant case was not negotiated between defendant and the prosecution. The court declared an indicated sentence of no more than four years, but that proposed disposition was not “accepted by the prosecuting attorney . . . .” (§ 1192.5.) Indeed, the prosecutor did not sign the felony plea form, but noted “Plea to the Court.” Therefore, the factual-basis requirement of Penal Code section 1192.5 does not apply here. (Hoffard, supra, 10 Cal.4th at p. 1184.)
    Defendant essentially argues that the plea was impliedly agreed to by the prosecutor, because the prosecutor did not object to the disposition; therefore, the court was required to conduct a factual-basis inquiry. There is no merit to this contention. We recognize that “[c]onducting a factual basis inquiry before accepting or entering a judgment on a guilty plea may further important interests, even where such an inquiry is not required by [Penal Code] section 1192.5.” (Hoffard, supra, 10 Cal.4th at p. 1183.) Additionally, as the court in Hoffard noted, such interests may be implicated where, as here, a defendant pleads guilty or no contest when presented with an indicated sentence: “When it appears to the trial court the danger of an involuntary, unintelligent, or inaccurate plea is particularly great—for example, when the defendant maintains his innocence or expresses ambivalence about admitting guilt, or when there is reason to believe the defendant is under unusual extrajudicial pressure to plead—the importance of inquiring into a factual basis is correspondingly high. In addition, some pleas not coming within [Penal Code] section 1192.5 may have been at least implicitly negotiated, as when the court provides the defense with an `indicated’ sentence. These pleas may present the same danger of false pleading as explicit plea bargains reached under [Penal Code] section 1192.5.” (Id. at p. 1184, fn. 12.) The court, however, “decline[d] . . . to impose . . . a new rule of criminal procedure” requiring a factual-basis inquiry where the procedural requirements of Penal Code section 1192.5 are not applicable. (Id. at p. 1184.) Accordingly we conclude that here, notwithstanding that defendant pled guilty in the context of an indicated sentence “lid,” the court did not err in failing to conduct a factual-basis inquiry because Penal Code section 1192.5 did not require such an inquiry.
    We also reject defendant’s contention that if “the disposition in this matter was arrived at without the prosecutor’s participation and over the People’s objection, this matter involved a prohibited act of judicial plea bargaining, and therefore was unlawful,” requiring defendant to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea. There is no evidence in the record to suggest that the plea to the court was unlawful. Rather, the trial court gave an indicated sentence and defendant pled to all of the charges. The difference between a plea bargain and an indicated sentence is that “[p]lea bargaining . . . may be related to an `indicated sentence’ but is a distinct way of compromising a case short of trial. When giving an `indicated sentence,’ the trial court simply informs a defendant `what sentence he will impose if a given set of facts is confirmed, irrespective of whether guilt is adjudicated at trial or admitted by plea.’ [Citations.] An accused retains the right to reject the proposed sentence and go to trial. The sentencing court may withdraw from the `indicated sentence’ if the factual predicate thereof is disproved. [Citation.]” (People v. Superior Court (Ramos) (1991) 235 Cal.App.3d 1261, 1271.) Thus, a guilty plea to all charges with an indicated sentence is proper: “[A] court may indicate to a defendant what its sentence will be on a given set of facts without interference from the prosecutor except for the prosecutor’s inherent right to challenge the factual predicate and to argue that the court’s intended sentence is wrong.” (People v. Superior Court (Felmann) (1976) 59 Cal.App.3d 270, 276-277.)
    Moreover, assuming arguendo that the trial court was required to conduct an inquiry as to a factual basis for the plea, any error was harmless. Failure to comply with the requirements of Penal Code section 1192.5 is “harmless where the contents of the record support a finding of a factual basis for the conditional plea. [Citations.]” (People v. Holmes, supra, 32 Cal.4th at p. 443.) The record in this case includes the preliminary hearing transcript from which a factual basis for the plea can be obtained.

    DISPOSITION
    The judgment is affirmed.
    KING, J. and MILLER, J., concurs.
    FOOTNOTES

    1. Defendant has also filed a petition for writ of habeas corpus (case No. E053897), claiming he was denied effective assistance of counsel when counsel had assured defendant he would be able to appeal the sufficiency of the evidence as to count 2. On July 5, 2011, we ordered that the petition for writ of habeas corpus be considered with the appeal for the sole purpose of determining whether an order to show cause should issue. We will resolve the petition by separate order.
    2. The factual background is taken from the preliminary hearing transcript.
