Woman guilty in death of Bay Area nursing student -

Jury convicts Giselle Esteban, 28, of first-degree murder in the slaying of her former friend, Michele Le, 26, in a hospital parking garage in 2011.

 Giselle Esteban 

SAN FRANCISCO — An Alameda County jury Monday convicted a Union City woman of first-degree murder for killing her onetime friend in a hospital parking garage in May 2011, the result of years of jealousy over a man.
The attorney representing Giselle Esteban, 28, did not dispute that her client had killed 26-year-old nursing student Michelle Le of San Mateo.
But Andrea Auer maintained that Esteban had acted in the heat of passion and should be convicted of voluntary manslaughter.
Alameda County Deputy Dist. Atty. Butch Ford, however, argued that Esteban was a "sociopath" who had planned the slaying for months.
"I am very gratified with the jury's decision," Ford said in a statement. "The jury's considered evaluation of the evidence today led to a just verdict."
Le disappeared May 27, 2011, after she went to get something from her car in the parking lot of Hayward's Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, where she was working.
Her family recruited volunteers and conducted extensive searches for her in the East Bay hills.
Her remains were found in a brushy canyon about a mile from Kaiser nearly four months later — by the mother of 14-year-old San Diego murder victim Amber Dubois, who was volunteering in the effort.
The physical evidence against Esteban was overwhelming.
Security cameras in the hospital garage had shown her in the structure about the time Le disappeared. Police found traces of Le's DNA on one of Esteban's shoes, and cellphone records showed that the women's phones were located together in the hours after Le vanished.
Le's abandoned car, discovered about three blocks from the hospital, was stained with her blood and bore traces of her hair.
Esteban and Le had gone to the same San Diego County high school, and both moved to the Bay Area to attend college.
Esteban's years of mounting anger centered around Scott Marasigan, who testified during the trial that he'd dated Le for about a month in 2003. He remained close friends with her and began dating Esteban later that year.
The couple had a daughter, now 6 years old, but they split up and Marasigan was awarded custody. Through it all, Esteban was convinced that Marasigan and Le were having an affair and that Le was responsible for the breakup.
Esteban even told a television station after Le went missing that she "hated" Le, although she contended at the time that she had nothing to do with Le's disappearance.
Jurors heard evidence that suggested premeditation. Esteban told Marasigan in a recorded conversation six months before the killing that both he and Le deserved to die, according to coverage of the trial by the Oakland Tribune.
An analysis of Esteban's computer by the FBI found that she had made death threats against Le beginning in November 2010 and, a month before the killing, had searched the Internet for Le's home address and for ways to kill people without being caught.

CHP officer stabbed nine times on Riverside freeway overpass -

CHP officer stabbed nine times on Riverside freeway overpass

A California Highway Patrol officer was in stable condition Friday after being repeatedly stabbed in his back, arms, face and eye by a man he was trying to stop from climbing the fence of a freeway overpass in Riverside.
Javier Hernandez Rios, 45, was booked into the Riverside County jail on suspicion of mayhem and attempted murder of a peace officer. He also was charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer for the attempted stabbing of two off-duty officers who intervened.
The incident unfolded when the CHP responded to a 911 call Thursday at 9:51 p.m. that a man was climbing an overpass fence on La Sierra Avenue at Highway 91 in Riverside. The caller believed the man was going to jump onto the freeway, according to Riverside police Sgt. David Amador.
Amador said the CHP officer, whose identity was not released, grabbed Rios’ legs. The suspect then allegedly produced a medium-sized pocket knife and began stabbing the officer.
An off-duty Riverside police officer and an off-duty San Bernardino County sheriff’s sergeant passing by in separate vehicles both stopped to assist, and the suspect allegedly attempted to stab them but missed, Amador said.
The suspect stopped resisting and was handcuffed after a second CHP officer arrived and shot a rubber bullet at him, Amador said. The CHP officer sustained nine stab wounds and was scheduled to undergo surgery Friday on his eye, Amador said. Rios was treated for minor injuries sustained during the alleged altercation.
Amador said police investigators suspect Rios was high on methamphetamines and possibly heroin, inducing paranoia that drove him to climb the freeway overpass fence. The suspect was lucid during the interview and told investigators he was trying to get away from what he thought were police following him all day, Amador said.
“We initially thought he was trying to commit suicide but we no longer believe that,” Amador said. “We don’t believe he has any mental problems; we think he was under the influence of drugs.”
Amador said Rios appeared to be a habitual drug user who was unemployed and lived in a motel with his wife. He has a criminal history of domestic violence, Amador said.
Police officials ask that anyone with information contact Det. Jim Brandt at (951) 353-7137 or Det. Mike Medici at (951) 353-7104.

O.C. man arrested on suspicion of eavesdropping on neighbors

O.C. man arrested on suspicion of eavesdropping on neighbor... good thing can help! 

John Patrick Rogers 

A Huntington Beach man pleaded not guilty this week to stalking and electronically eavesdropping on his neighbors, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.

John Patrick Rogers, 48, was arrested Thursday in Bellflower by Huntington Beach detectives shortly after noon and is being held on $1-million bail. He entered the plea Monday.
Rogers faces five felony counts of stalking and electronic eavesdropping as well as multiple misdemeanor counts for contempt of court order violations.
Over the last year, members of Rogers' townhome community have accused him of harassing them in multiple ways, including violations of restraining orders and unauthorized recording, according to a release from the Huntington Beach Police Department.
Lt. Mitch O'Brien could not provide details about the allegations.
"It's numerous cases, and I don't have specifics on the actual cases," he said.
Rogers has been arrested by Huntington Beach police in the past, but O'Brien declined to elaborate.

Man detained in Sacramento County killings of mother, 2 toddlers...

Not Great News! - but we help anyone and everyone we can! -

Sacramento County officials detained a man for questioning early Wednesday in the triple homicide of a young Rancho Cordova mother and two small children, they said.
The white Chrysler minivan missing from the scene of the violent homicides was located at a Denny's restaurant in Rocklin about 2 a.m., Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos told the Sacramento Bee.
An adult male believed to be in possession of the van was found inside the restaurant by Rocklin police officers and detained without incident, the Sacramento Bee reported.
Authorities said they believe the van was stolen from the duplex where the woman and her two toddlers were found dead. Deputies were called to a home in the 10100 block of Desoto Way on Tuesday after the woman's husband, who is also the children's father, came home and found the bodies, Ramos said.
The man did not have access to a phone and went to a neighbor's house for help, fearing the attackers were still inside. The neighbor then called 911 about 3:30 p.m., Ramos said. Deputies found the the bodies of the woman, described as being in her 20s, and a 3-year-old girl and 2-year-old boy dead in one room.
A third child, a 6-month-old boy, was found crying but unharmed in another room, Ramos said.

Police arrest 2 men, find 24 pounds of marijuana outside In-N-Out..

These guys need!.. we can advise of drug laws 24/7! -

Approximate location of incident shown in black.

Two men were arrested over the weekend after police found 24 pounds of marijuana in a BMW outside an In-N-Out Burger restaurant in Glendale, officials said.
Stephen Thompson, 27, of Canoga Park and Trevor Alcorn, 30, of Millville, near Redding in Northern California, were arrested Sunday in the parking lot of the In-N-Out in the 300 block of Harvey Drive, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
The marijuana was divided into 24 one-pound bags, which Lorenz said could be worth $150,000 to $200,000 if sold on the streets, the Glendale News-Press reported. Some bags were labeled "Berry White," "Blue Cheese," "Bubba" and "OG Kush."
A police officer was pulling into the parking lot when he spotted Thompson smoking within 10 feet of the restaurant's front door, a violation of the city's smoking ordinance, Lorenz said. As the officer approached, Alcorn and a third man walked away from Thompson.
The officer then saw Alcorn place an item inside a compartment on the BMW's passenger door. The officer approached Thompson, who apologized for smoking and being unfamiliar with the ordinance because he didn't live in the area.
Thompson, Lorenz said, told the officer he was on parole and was in possession of medicinal marijuana. He also denied knowing Alcorn and the other man.
But police said Alcorn and the other man told the officer they knew Thompson and had arrived at the restaurant with him.
Alcorn told the officer that he had a small amount of marijuana inside his car and allowed him to search the BMW.
In the trunk of the BMW, the officer found the marijuana hidden inside a plastic bin sealed with a padlock, Lorenz said. Police impounded the BMW and arrested Thompson and Alcorn. Officers determined that the third man, who was not identified, was not involved and he was not arrested.
Thompson was in custody Monday in lieu of $50,000 bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department records. Alcorn was released after posting bond.

Gunman shoots family of 5 - police find third body inside home

LA County is large... spread out and easily confused.. Let help you navigate through the legal system!

Gunman shoots family of 5; police find third body inside home

Inglewood shooting, fire scene 

Authorities Sunday were continuing to piece together the shooting and fire at an Inglewood home that left three people dead, including a young child, and three others wounded.
Five members of a family were found shot Saturday morning. Then on Saturday night, the body of another person was found in the rubble.
"We do have a body," said Inglewood police Lt. James Madia, adding that police were taking care not to disturb it and had not made a tentative identification.
The house was rented by Desmond John Moses, who authorities say went on a rampage before dawn Saturday, shooting five members of a family that lived next to him. The father, 30, and his 4-year-old son were fatally wounded. The mother, 28, and two other children, a 7-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy, are hospitalized in critical condition. An 8-year-old boy was not injured.
Authorities believe Moses, in his mid 50s, set the house on fire. He was described by neighbors as a recluse, and authorities said his house was jammed with items, complicating the search through the charred wreckage.
Moses lived in the rear of a lot with two other rental houses, one of them the victims', in the 4900 block of West 99th Street. He had not paid his rent in years and the landlord said he had obtained an eviction order Tuesday giving Moses 15 days to move out.
Neighbors awoke at 4 a.m. to gunshots, screams and the sight of flames engulfing the small house Moses had lived in for at least two decades.
Authorities did not release the family’s name, but neighbors identified the couple as Filimon and Gloria Lamas. A woman sobbing at the scene Saturday said the two had been high school sweethearts.
Moses was described as "really weird" by some in the neighborhood, which is about a mile west of Hollywood Park racetrack.
Late Saturday, firefighters were slowly sifting through the smoking debris of the house with shovels and rakes. The roof and one wall had collapsed.
"We have to be absolutely careful in going through the rubble," said Madia. "If he is in there, we will have solved the case."
With no indication that Moses had driven away, SWAT teams searched nearby houses and checked the trunks of vehicles leaving the block. At one point police were planning to send residents to a shelter while they scoured the neighborhood, but they dropped that idea.
By late afternoon, neighbors were milling about their front yards, trying to get a glimpse of the crime scene down the street.
Aileen Ramirez, 11, who lives behind the suspect's home, said she was awakened by "really, really loud gunshots and screaming. Somebody was yelling, 'Help me!' I ran outside with my mother and saw the house burning down."
Karla Carmona, 11, who lives with the Ramirez family, said she saw the roof collapsing and the fire "getting bigger and bigger."
Filimon Lamas, who property records show co-owned a Hawthorne cafe, was shot trying to protect his children.
"The father was found draped over two of the children, shielding them," said Inglewood Police Chief Mark Fronterotta.
Despite the fact that she had been shot in both legs, the children's mother, 28, managed to jump over the property's fence with her son, who had been shot in the head.
Paramedics found her collapsed on the street.
Her 7-year-old daughter was shot in the chest and the 6-year-old boy was wounded in his pelvis.
Aileen's brother, Yesualdo Ramirez, 20, described the children as "happy kids. We'd always see them kicking around soccer balls."
Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Tom Richards said the suspect was a "pack rat." The house was so full of debris that a ladder truck was needed to help move it.
"That house was filled to the brim with stuff," he said.

Although we wish it wasn't true.. BailNow has always been there to help! - Violent crimes up 17% in 2011

The Bureau of Justice Statistics' National Crime Victimization Survey includes reported and unreported rapes, robberies and assaults after historically low numbers in 2010. Experts say the one-year fluctuation could be a fluke.

Assault arrest 

The number of violent crimes in the United States rose by 17% in 2011, the first year-to-year increase since 1993, according to a report released Wednesday by the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

But the report said that the jump was more a matter of returning to the norm after historically low numbers in 2010. In 2010, incidents of violent crime experienced an unexpected double-digit drop of 13%.
The National Crime Victimization Survey measures rape or sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated and simple assault. The number of aggravated or simple assaults rose from 4 million in 2010 to 5 million in 2011, a 22% increase, accounting for most of the rise in violent crime.
Property crime was also up, the first increase in a decade. The number of property crimes rose from 15.4 million in 2010 to 17 million in 2011, an 11% increase.
Property crime includes burglary and theft, including motor vehicle theft. Home burglary incidents rose from 3.2 million to 3.6 million, an increase of 14%. Incidents of theft rose from 11.6 million to 12.8 million, an increase of 10%.
The statistics appear alarming at first glance, but experts warn against forecasting future trends based on what could be a one-year fluctuation.
"One-year fluctuations don't tell us much, if anything at all," said Robert Huckabee, associate professor of criminology at Indiana State University. "I say let's see where things go over the next 10-15 years."
Criminologists have long sought to explain variations in crime rates and opinions vary widely, Huckabee said.
"Some say that crime has been down because of more aggressive or better-quality police activity," he said. "Some say it's related to demographics — fewer males in the 18- [to] 30-year-old group."
But Huckabee said a plausible explanation for the variation was difficult to find.
Eric Baumer, professor of criminology at Florida State University, said that although the numbers might reflect the beginning of a meaningful break in the long-term decline, he was skeptical of that conclusion.
"It appears that the 2010 estimates are based on smaller sample sizes," Baumer said, noting previous budget cuts to data collection for the crime victimization survey.
"The 2011 data are based on larger samples … so it seems plausible that some of the reported change could be due to the differences in sampling across the two years," he suggested.
Charles Wellford, chairman of the department of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Maryland, said that the public thought of violent crime as "murder, rape, robbery and serious assault."
But "simple assault," which the crime victimization survey takes into account, can refer to instances in which "two people get into an argument, things escalate, and one of them calls the police. No one is injured and no weapon is involved," Wellford said.
There was no significant change in the number of rapes or sexual assaults and robberies. Violent crimes experienced by whites, Latinos, younger people and men accounted for the majority of the increase.
The crime victimization survey figures are considered the most comprehensive because they count reported crimes as well as crimes that are never reported to the police. In 2011, 49% of violent victimizations and 37% of property victimizations were reported to police. Historically, less than 50% of all violent crime is reported.

Details of slayings recalled at football player's hearing.. even we can't help this guy!

Anthony Smith

The evening that brothers Kevin and Ricky Nettles were abducted outside their Los Angeles mechanic's shop, one of their employees said they were visited by an armed man who looked like a police detective.
The employee, 67, described in court last week how on that November day in 1999 he saw onetime Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders defensive end Anthony Wayne Smith stop Ricky Nettles in the street and usher him into the back of a car, where another man sat behind the wheel.
"He told me he was taking [Ricky] down for questioning," the employee said. Smith wore a suit and tie, "just like a detective," he recounted — and even had a badge attached to his belt. He never saw his boss alive again.
As the preliminary hearing on charges of murder, kidnapping and special circumstances against Smith unfolded in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Lancaster, prosecutors supplied new details on what they allege was Smith's descent from successful NFL star to repeat killer. A judge ruled that Smith must face trial; prosecutors have yet to decide whether to seek the death penalty.
The new allegations put Smith at the center of elaborate crimes in which victims were branded with hot tools by assailants dressed as law enforcement agents. The charges go far beyond ones aired at a trial earlier this year, when prosecutors failed to win a conviction on charges that Smith killed a Lancaster mechanic.
Long before that killing, prosecutors now contend, Smith was involved in the torture murders of three men, including Nettles, who was burned with an iron-shaped object on his abdomen and shot.
When police searched Smith's San Bernardino storage unit last year after reopening the Nettles case, they found ammunition, law enforcement garb — including clothing bearing the words "Bail Recovery Agent" — and four books about committing crimes, testified Los Angeles Police Det. Martin Mojarro.
Smith, a top draft pick who played with the Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders between 1991 and 1998, has pleaded not guilty to all the charges. His attorney, Michael S. Evans, has cast doubt on witnesses' recollections and argued that prosecutors lack physical evidence.
Evans has also questioned the timing of prosecutors' filing of the new charges, suggesting that it was connected to their setback in the Lancaster case.
Smith, who is married to a San Bernardino County prosecutor, had been out of the limelight for years when authorities announced his alleged connection to the slaying of Maurilio Ponce, 31, the mechanic whose body was found on a Lancaster roadside three years ago. Smith's two alleged accomplices were both convicted, but a jury deadlocked on the charges against him.
Shortly after, prosecutors announced that they would retry the Ponce case, and — in a surprise move — they also announced that they would charge him in the Nettles' case and in the 2001 slaying of Dennis Henderson, 33. All were cold cases reopened by LAPD investigators, who say they are still seeking other suspects.
At last week's hearing before Superior Court Judge Lisa M. Chung, prosecutors put on several witnesses who described how the Nettles brothers, operators of a garage and beeper store, were abducted and later found dead, their heads bound with duct tape. Kevin Nettles had been shot six times by a 9-millimeter gun and had a U-shaped burn on his cheek, a deputy medical examiner said.
One of the witnesses had been allowed back in the country to testify on a special authorization from federal immigration authorities, a vivid example of the role illegal immigrants may play in criminal cases. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has recently invoked such incidents to justify his controversial policies on immigrants.
Ismael de Jesus Yanez Flores, who spoke through a Spanish interpreter, said he was driving a pickup in South L.A. shortly after the Nettles were kidnapped. He pulled next to a car and saw a figure with his head on the floor in the back, he said. He also saw guns, and flagged down an officer. His report went nowhere, and Yanez was later deported.
But in court last week, 13 years later, Yanez identified Smith as the man he saw in the front passenger seat. Shown photos of one of the battered bodies, he broke down on the stand.
Another witness, Terry Ware, told how he and Henderson were in Mar Vista in June 2001 when a masked man approached and struck Henderson with a gun and snatched a gold chain from his neck. Another assailant ordered Ware on the ground. He said he was driven around, bound and blindfolded. The kidnappers took $10 and left him in an Inglewood alley. "This is not for you," he recalled one saying.
Henderson was later found dead in the back of a rental car. He had been stabbed at least 34 times, including once in the eye. A retired LAPD investigator testified that Henderson's brother had been Smith's neighbor. He said the brother had previously reported seeing law-enforcement paraphernalia, guns and hand grenades that Smith kept in storage.
Evans, Smith's defense attorney, countered that witnesses' identifications of Smith were made too long after the fact to be credible. He particularly sought to discredit Ware's testimony, showing that it differed from Ware's earlier statements, and questioning why Ware had not called authorities at the time. Ware grew visibly irritated, and at one point the judge admonished him for swearing.
Friends and relatives of the victims who sat through the proceedings said they had waited for years for answers about why their loved ones were slain. Nettles' family members said they had no inkling the crimes might involve Smith until detectives notified them in July.
Smith, they said, was a stranger to the brothers. "They had never seen him before in their lives," said Frank Nettles, 53, their older brother. Nettles said his brothers were "regular guys," who ran a mechanic's shop and a carwash.
Ricky Nettles' fiancée, Shonta Anderson, attended with two of Nettles' grown children, Dashan, 27, and Brandi, 24. Anderson, 46, said Nettles was a "hardworking businessman and happy person" who "had no problem or conflict with anyone."
"It's been rough, especially because the kids are involved," she said of the years since her fiancee's death. "Relief came in knowing the case is still being worked on."
Dashan Nettles said he most regretted that "my dad won't get to see what I've achieved." Nettles said he graduated from college with a degree in healthcare administration and served five years in the Navy. A smile spread across his face as he spoke of how proud his father would have been.
Henderson's sister, Sheila, who sat in the audience during the testimony, described her brother as "silly, funny, happy-go-lucky … always cracking jokes."
His son, Dennis Jr., who was about 10 at the time of his father's slaying, was too upset to attend the proceedings, she said. and BailNow Bail Bonds can help anyone else! Call TODAY 1-877-700-BAIL(2245)

San Francisco sheriff keeps job despite domestic violence claims

San Francisco sheriff keeps job despite domestic violence claims

He'll need us soon!...!

Ross Mirkarimi and Eliana Lopez 

San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday evening that Ross Mirkarimi did not commit official misconduct during an incident of domestic violence and that he should be returned to office.
Before casting the deciding vote, Supervisor John Avalos acknowledged that Mirkarimi is "a public figure and needs to be held to a very high standard." But Avalos said that while it would be "emotionally satisfying and politically expedient" to oust him, there is a "danger of removing an elected official for actions committed before he took office."
Mirkarimi needed at least three members of the 11-person board to vote for reinstatement. Avalos was the third, and as he announced his decision, Mirkarimi reached over and shook his attorney's hand.
The supervisors heard from more than 100 speakers — and one singer — during nearly five hours of public testimony before the scheduled vote. Some argued that the sheriff should be removed, but most strenuously supported him. There were questions about what constitutes spousal abuse and a number of conspiracy theories.
Three viewing rooms in City Hall were opened to accommodate the overflow of San Franciscans who wanted to take part in what many here viewed as an historic moment.
The last time the supervisors kicked out of office a democratically elected official, the nation was mired in the Great Depression, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was poised to eject Herbert Hoover from the White House and the case before the San Francisco board was pretty clear cut.
Frank Egan, the city's first elected public defender, was removed from office by the supervisors in 1932 after being charged with first-degree murder; he eventually spent 25 years in state prison.
The decision before the board Tuesday was thornier: whether then-Supervisor Mirkarimi — eight days before he was inaugurated as sheriff — was guilty of official misconduct for a New Year's Eve fight with his wife, telenovela star Eliana Lopez, which left her with a bruised right arm.
"There is no question that on Dec. 31, 2011, Ross Mirkarimi made a serious and terrible mistake," his attorney, David Waggoner, told the supervisors. But "he immediately apologized to his wife. He entered into counseling. He apologized to the people of San Francisco. He pled guilty to a criminal offense."
As a result, Waggoner continued, Mirkarimi was separated from his wife and son for seven months, suspended from his job without pay and had "his entire life's work destroyed almost in an instant."
The punishment, he said, does not fit the crime, and the city's definition of official misconduct is unconstitutionally vague. Besides, he said, Mirkarimi could not be found guilty because he was not even sheriff when the incident occurred, he was still a supervisor. And, he did not hurt his wife while carrying out official duties.
"So domestic violence is just between the sheriff and his wife?" asked Supervisor Scott Wiener.

Man upset by ref's call at kids' soccer game arrested on battery charges

This upset father needs ASAP!
Rafael Delfin Sequeda

A 38-year-old man upset with a referee’s call during a children’s soccer game in Riverside County allegedly ended up acting, well, like a child himself.
Authorities said Rafael Delfin Sequeda of Cathedral City was watching a children’s soccer game in Thousand Palms Community Park on Saturday when he got upset with the ref’s call at about 11:30 a.m. and set out on a tear.
Sequeda “ran onto the field, pushed a nine-year-old player to the ground and kicked the referee in the leg,” according to a news release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Authorities arrested Sequeda for battery on a child and battery on a referee.
The 9-year-old was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and the referee was not significantly hurt.
It’s unclear what call the referee made to set Sequeda off or if his own children were playing in the game.

Sex offender sues four Orange County cities over park, beach bans

Sex offender sues four Orange County cities over park, beach bans

A registered sex offender has filed suit against four Orange County cities, challenging the constitutionality of laws that ban sex offenders from using public parks, beaches and even some roadways.
The suit is aimed at Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Seal Beach and Lake Forest, which have all modeled local ordinances after the county’s sex offender law, which bans those people from entering county parks and other public facilities.
The lawsuit, filed Sept. 28 in U.S. District Court, claims the ordinances that ban the plaintiff from entering city parks or beaches violate the Constitution and his protected rights under the law. The lawsuit also names Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens and the four cities' police chiefs.
The San Francisco law firm representing the sex offender, whose name was not listed but was verified by the courts, said the ban violates his 1st, 5th and 14th Amendment rights.
The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff, by being banned from entering public property, is unable to peaceably assemble, speak freely, travel via some public roads, receive information and petition the government. The ban also deprives him of his liberties without a fair hearing and prevents him from judicial access, the lawsuit said.
The lawsuit also claims that because he completed his sentence long before the ban was enacted, those cities' laws stand to potentially increase his punishment, a constitutional violation. The lawsuit asks the courts to permanently stop the four cities from enforcing their bans and declare the laws unconstitutional.
The plaintiff was convicted more than 15 years ago,the suit said, and has long since served his sentence and been treated and is now employed and married with children.

These guys are bold! can help!... (even with questionable choices)

Chalking slogans

Los Angeles police are looking for whoever vandalized areas around their downtown headquarters, a department spokesman said Tuesday.
The writing of graffiti is believed to have coincided with the one-year anniversary of the Occupy L.A. protests. Protesters rallied Monday in Pershing Square and marched to the area around City Hall.
"It's unfortunate the way some people choose to protest things they don't like," said LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith. "I can't see how vandalizing public property helps anybody's cause."
According to police, the vandalism included chalking sidewalks around police headquarters with slogans like "Protect and serve the 1%" and "Pigs."
But the vandalism included slogans that were scrawled in permanent ink on one of the marble walls on the side of the Ronald Deaton Auditorium and one of the statues on the west side of the building. In addition, someone defecated next to the statue.
Officials with the city's General Services Department were inspecting the damage and police said they are taking pictures of the vandalism as part of a potential criminal investigation.

This is why we all stayed off the freeway this weekend!

Woman whose SUV flipped on O.C. freeway, killing 3, faces charges 

A Downey woman will appear in a Fullerton courtroom Monday in connection with charges that she killed three passengers in her SUV when she lost control of the vehicle.
Ruth Nava Torres, 43, is charged with three misdemeanor counts of vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence and faces a maximum sentence of three years in jail.
Nava Torres was involved in the deadly 2011 nighttime collision after leaving a Crystal Cathedral church service.
Prosecutors claim she was driving at a "high rate of speed as she exited the Interstate 5 freeway on the Beach Boulevard off-ramp" from the northbound side.
They allege Nava Torres lost control of the SUV, which caused it to roll across the guardrail and onto a ramp before coming to a stop in an empty lot, where it caught fire. A bystander rescued her from the burning vehicle.
Nava Torres and a 17-year-old female passenger were taken to UC Irvine Medical Center with severe injuries.
But Vanessa Torres, 24, Angela Prado, 49, and Sara Flores, 40, all of Downey, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Nava Torres was released on her own recognizance over the objection of prosecutors at a July court appearance.
