    A judge can add years to a criminal sentence by finding that the defendant obstructed justice by lying on the witness stand. But taking the stand in your own defense, and giving testimony that the judge doesn’t believe, isn’t enough by itself to ratchet up your prison term. That was the word Friday from the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In setting aside an Arizona man’s 20-year sentence in a drug case, the court said it was concerned that too broad of a definition of obstruction of justice could intimidate defendants out of exercising their right to testify. Indalecio…

  • Warrant needed for DUI blood draw — but not in this case

    Bob Egelko
    24 Oct 2014 | 4:50 pm
    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that police need a search warrant, in most cases, before drawing blood from a suspected drunken driver for testing. But the ruling didn’t help a Bay Area man whose blood was taken without a warrant more than a year earlier. Giovanni Rossetti was stopped by the Highway Patrol on state Highway 242 near Concord in November 2011 while driving about 90 in a 65-mph zone and weaving in and out of lanes, according to a state appeals court. An officer said Rossetti appeared to be intoxicated, arrested him and took him to the patrol’s area office. When he…

But authorities said there was no evidence to link Jose Refugio Cesar Garcia, 47, of East Palo Alto to recent cases of indecent exposure in Palo Alto and Belmont. The girls, both under 7 years old, had finished showering at the Oaks Motel at 4279 El Camino Real about 9:15 p.m. Thursday.

    A California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer working in the Bay Area found out that it’s pretty hard to stop a wheelie-popping motorcycle rider, at least when you’re swarmed by other bikers with no regard for the law. A video posted Wednesday on YouTube, titled “Cop Chases Bikers Then Biker Makes Cop Leave,” shows dozens of bikers riding south on Interstate 680 near Montague Expressway in Milpitas on Oct. 11. The video, shot by a camera mounted on one of the riders, shows the rider and others popping wheelies at high speed. The video then shows the group catching up with a CHP motor…

    Petaluma cops say they busted a burglar with a fondness for guns, jewels and underpants. Officers were investigating a burglary on Marilyn Circle about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when they identified a suspect, 18-year-old city resident Benjamin Hawkins, said police Sgt. Rick Cox. Hawkins entered the home and stole two guns, which were recovered, Cox said. The suspect allegedly modified one into a sawed-off shotgun. Hawkins gave officers permission to search his bedroom, and police found additional stolen property, including women’s jewelry and about 500 pairs of women’s undergarments, Cox said.

As a result, the Supreme Court ruled that capital punishment was unconstitutional for crimes committed when the defendant was less than 18-years-old. This decision overruled Stanford v. Kentucky from 1989, which upheld capital punishment for offenders who were 16 or older. Roper v. Simmons overturned statues from 25 states that had set a lower age limit.

    When you think about private investigators and what they actually do, it is quite easy to simply get swept away by romantic notions of the job, as depicted on the big (and small) screen. Even if your view of a modern-day PI is less Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and more Magnum P.I., far-fetched conceptions are still going to be made about the life of a private investigator. Even grittier and more authentic TV detective characters like Jimmy McNulty of The Wire and John Luther of Luther may get involved with extreme scenarios that still fail to accurately display what this kind of role really…

    The term “bluebeard” conveys images of pirates sailing the high seas, but the actual meaning of this term is much darker and there are examples of it all around us. You see, a “bluebeard” is a man that murders his wife. The term is derived from a French folktale dating back to the 1600′s, making this horrible idea not a new one. The fact that this term isn’t commonly used in North America is curious, since its female counterpart “black widow” is widely known worldwide. In this episode of Sword and Scale we examine some Bluebeard cases which you…

    Everyone thought Joshua Gouker was a dangerous criminal. It was easy to convict him of murdering his 14-year-old step son Trey Zwicker, especially after he suddenly changed his plea to guilty and confessed. But why would a hardened criminal mastermind, who had several friends and family members at his command and lying for him, suddenly confess at trial without a plea bargain in place? The answer is that his son, who he proudly referred to as a demon child, was also on trial for the same murder, and although he was only 15 when Zwicker died, he was being tried as an adult. The bond between…

    In this special two-parter, the brutal and inexplicable murder of a 14-year-old boy exposes a dysfunctional American family’s secrets and lies.  This is the story of Trey Zwicker’s murder, a young boy who did everything right but never really had a chance because he grew up in the wrong place, around the wrong people. This is also the story of a father and son.  Joshua Young, a bright honor-role student, and Joshua Gouker, a convicted felon who had spent most of his son’s lifetime behind bars.  The two were so close that they even share a murder indictment for Trey…

    This is one of the most under-reported murders in the history of the North American Continent. A mutilation that took hours and mind that was so disturbed it relished in the extreme violence inflicted on the deceased, this story exposes the obvious deficiencies in the extremely Liberal Canadian justice system, which even many natives don’t even fully understand. Dan Zupansky, author of Trophy Kill “The Shall We Ask Murder” and host of the highly-popular true-crime podcast True Murder “The Most Shocking Killers in True Crime History”, joins us to tell us a tale…

    Every year more than 3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving more than 6 million children.  Being one of these children is nightmarish enough, but if your abuser is someone you completely trust, then the event becomes all the more traumatic.  Jamie Sivrais was one of these children.  When he was 10 his father, who had been absent much of his early life, sexually abused him.  Emboldened by his act, the abuse escalated to a point where Jamie knew he had to do something to try and put an end to it. Today Jamie runs a non-profit called A Voice for the…

  • Strangest Final Meal Requests

    Heather Sutfin
    7 Oct 2014 | 8:31 am
    It is customary for inmates to be provided with a last meal request preceding their execution. The tradition began in Europe as a sort of peace offering between the inmate, the judge, and executioner. It is symbolic of the accused being forgiven for their past, and superstitiously believed to prevent the executed inmate’s ghost from returning to haunt the executioner. Since inmates are allowed to choose whatever they want to eat, with a few exceptions, there is no doubt that there have been some odd requests over the years. Victor Feguer Michigan drifter, and convicted murderer, Victor…
  • Murder Incorporated

    Murder is nothing new. Most murderers are amateurs while some, such as hitmen, are professionals. What you very seldom find is a group of hitmen, a dedicated gang of killers selling murder-for-hire as the enforcement arm of a national crime syndicate. ‘Murder Incorporated’ was exactly that. Within the underworld there was nothing like them prior to their appearance and there’s been nothing like them since their demise. They were an integral part of the restructuring of American organised crime and one of the most notorious criminal groups that ever existed. Louis ‘Lepke’…

    Unlike FX’s popular drama Sons of Anarchy, the early Norwegian black metal scene had very little to do with motorcycles, but it had everything to do with anarchy. This small group of bands, some still producing music today, included Mayhem, Bathory, Darkthrone, Emperor, Enslaved, Burzum, along with several other lesser-known groups. Often painting themselves in corpse paint, conducting bizarre and grotesque antics at their stage shows, as well as their disdain for organized religion, were just the tip of the iceberg. The Death of Dead It’s not uncommon for bands to have gimmicks to shock…

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:07 pm
    If there’s anything we can learn from this video clip from the comedy show Reno 911, it’s that Field Sobriety Tests can be ridiculously unnecessary, and oftentimes lead to self-incrimination. However, if you know your rights and are certain about what you should do during a DUI stop, your chances of being convicted for DUI are greatly reduced. If you are stopped for DUI, you will likely be asked to take a field sobriety test. Here’s a brief guide that will help you avoid a DUI conviction by knowing how to handle a DUI stop and subsequent field sobriety tests. Show Police Your…

  • Can Police Force You to Submit to a Blood Test at a DUI Stop?

    Matthew Wallin
    9 Oct 2014 | 12:17 pm
    The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in Missouri v. McNeely that police do not have a right to force you to take a blood test during a DUI stop.1The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures. Because of this ruling, if a cop forces you to submit to a blood test during a DUI stop, the test could be considered illegal and the results will likely not be accepted as evidence. What if I Refuse to Take a Test? You can refuse to take a blood test at a DUI stop. However, if the police find probable cause that you committed a crime, they can search you…

    On a Friday afternoon, you and your friends decide to celebrate the end of a long workweek by heading to happy hour at your favorite restaurant. After having a couple of drinks, you head home. As you near your neighborhood, you notice ahead of you a row of traffic cones, a couple of patrol cars, flashing lights, and police officers in the street stopping a line of cars. These are the telltale signs of a sobriety checkpoint. What can you do at this point? The Law of Sobriety Checkpoints The landmark DUI case in California is Ingersoll v.

  • What is a DMV Hearing? (Video)

    Matthew Wallin
    11 Sep 2014 | 2:46 pm
    A DMV hearing is part of the process you will go through if you are arrested for a DUI. Once you are arrested, an officer will take away your license and you will later be issued a temporary pink license. Once you are issued a temporary pink license, you have 10 days to set a DMV hearing. If you fail to set a DMV hearing, your driver’s license will automatically be suspended. A DUI arrest will trigger both a DMV hearing to determine if your license will be suspended, as well as charges in criminal court. The sole purpose of the DMV hearing is for the DMV to take away your license. The…

    Young Klein & Associates
    21 Oct 2014 | 6:19 am
    In Pennsylvania, DUI or Driving Under the Influence is usually considered a misdemeanor. While a misdemeanor is less serious than a felony, it can still trigger a slew of harsh consequences — including a prominent note on your public criminal record.  Anyone can view this record, including but not limited to prospective employers and loan officers, which means that you may run into obstacles when you’re trying to get hired for a job or take out a loan.  So is there any way you can remove old DUI charges from your record?

    After you’re issued a traffic ticket, you have two options: you can accept it and pay the fine, or deny it and fight the ticket in court.  But if you do neither, a judge can issue a bench warrant for your arrest.  Our traffic violation lawyers explain how traffic offenses can lead to warrants, and what you should do if there’s a bench warrant out for your arrest. How a Traffic Ticket Can Lead to a Bench Warrant Tickets can be issued for two basic types of traffic violations: moving violations  (such as speeding, failure to use turn signals, or failure to wear a seat belt),…

  • Is DUI Caused by Marijuana Covered by the ARD Program?

    23 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    Pennsylvania offers an ARD Program (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition)  for certain DUI offenders.  ARD is a wonderful opportunity, because successful participation means you don’t have to plead guilty, you won’t be convicted, and the charges against you will be dropped.  But what if your DUI was based on drugs instead of alcohol?  Does ARD cover intoxicated driving offenses that involve marijuana?  Our DUI defense lawyers have the answers.

    Court can be an intimidating place.  For some people, the prospect of facing judges, juries, and prosecutors is so intimidating that they decide to skip their court date altogether.  The temptation to avoid making a scheduled appearance may feel strong right now, but hopefully you’ll change your mind before your calendar date comes up — because if you don’t, the judge will issue a bench warrant for your arrest.  If you’ve already missed a court date, what should you do next?  Our criminal defense attorneys explain.

    Hannah Overton (crying salty tears) Recently Hannah Overton had her murder conviction overturned in the death of her foster son Andrew Burd. She was initially convicted of killing Andrew by way of sodium poisoning as it was alleged she used some kind of salt filled seasoning as a punishment resulting in his death. There were also accusations of blunt force trauma against Andrew and making him sleep on a plywood bed under the watch of a hidden camera. Since Overton belonged to a local Texas mega-church there has been an outcry since her arrest to free her. Now prosecutors have stated that they…

    Bell and Downs An 11-year-old boy recently ran away from his home in Plain Dealing, Louisiana. He was gone for 25 hours before police found him relatively unharmed. I say relatively because the boy was said to have excessive bruising on his body. As it turned out the boy told police that his father and step-mother were physically abusive to him. DCFS further investigated and 43-year-old Ernest W. Bell III and 30-year-old Kristen M. Downs were charged with child abuse. They were also booked on drug and weapons charges as investigators found weed and guns in the home. The pair are said to have…

    Yeah, so BB has been banned by Google Adsense. Well, not so much banned as they told us to change the content on the site as it’s considered either sensitive or a hate site or they would ban us. They wouldn’t get into specifics about what the offending or sensitive content was so I just removed the Adsense ads from the site. Unfortunately that means the main revenue from the site has been lost. Not that it was a living revenue mind you but it’s gone nonetheless. What this means to you is that you may be seeing more increased ads from another service on the site, especially…

    Utah mom accused of helping son in drive-by shooting Mom Accused of Helping Son in Drive-by Shooting While many of us enjoy helping our children with homework and projects, there are SOME things that we should avoid assisting them with. Indeed, we should discourage some behaviors altogether. Alas, Lisa Egersdorf has too few brain cells to be able to distinguish between the good activities and the bad ones. But, she DOES have that really nice face tat, so I guess that is some sort of consolation for her. Lisa is a 36-year-old woman who thought it would be a great idea to help her 17-year-old…
