The appellant challenges his conviction and punishment for alleged robbery. Inquiry into a prospective juror's understanding of what proof beyond a reasonable doubt means constitutes a proper question regardless of whether the law specifically defines that term; but the error here was harmless. It was improper to enhance appellant's punishment in this case with his state jail felony conviction. The judgment of the trial court is affirmed in part, reversed in part, and modified in part. Eastland Court of Appeals, No. 11-10-00315-CR, 10-04-2012.
