Supreme Court of California.

December 15, 1978.

Paul Halvonik, State Public Defender, Charles M. Sevilla, Chief Assistant State Public Defender, Aurelio Munoz and Allison Stein. Deputy State Public Defenders, for Defendant and Appellant.

Two cases are consolidated in this appeal. (1) In superior court No. A610763, the judgment of conviction of first degree burglary (Pen. Code, §§ 459, 460) must be reversed because the trial court denied defendant's timely pretrial motion for substitution of appointed counsel without giving defendant an opportunity to state the specific grounds for his dissatisfaction with counsel.
