    Police in Walnut Creek are hoping the public can help identify a brazen thief who allegedly made off with a woman’s credit cards and took herself on a $3,000 shopping spree. The theft, which took place Monday sometime around the lunch hour, was caught on surveillance video at Tender Greens restaurant on Locust Street, police said. About 20 seconds into the video, which investigators posted online, the suspect can be seen taking a seat next to a woman in the bottom right corner of the frame. The suspect sits for about a minute and appears to be checking out her neighbors at the next table.

    The expected orders list the day after the "long conference" didn't come today, as it has in prior years. SCOTUSblog has this editor's note at the top of their home page:In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court's "Long Conference." It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari. To the extent that practice continues -- and there is no affirmative evidence the Court intends to drop it -- we would not expect orders granting certiorari today.

    One of the hardest-fought crime bills of the legislative session, stiffening the laws against prosecutors who withhold evidence that might help the defense, has been vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown. AB885 by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, applied to cases  in which the defense learns, before the end of the trial, that the prosecution has deliberately violated its legal duty to disclose evidence potentially favorable to the defendant. Under current law, the judge might grant a brief delay to allow the defense to look into the evidence, can hold the prosecutor in contempt, and can also…

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.

    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.

    If you’ve ever been to London, chances are that you might have visited Hyde Park and, if you have, then you’ll probably have seen one of London’s most famous landmarks, Marble Arch. But it’s not the King of Norway’s gift to Queen Victoria (a gift, incidentally, that she hated) that we’re interested in. We’re interested in the small marker set into the ground near it that marks one of the most infamous and bloody spots in London, the site of Tyburn and its triangular gallows built to hang 24 inmates at once, known to crime historians and eager spectators as the ‘triple tree.’…
  • Somerton Blues

    Mayra Martinez
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:39 am
    Early one warm, December morning, around 6:30 to be more exact, the fog was stirring in the small town of Somerton, Adelaide, South Australia. It was the kind of summer morning Australians loved, usually. It was still early and the fog was milling around the jetty, embankment, and the boats docked in the harbor, thinking about lifting for the day. There were few mysteries in Somerton; who was sleeping with who, was so-and-so pinching from the penny jar, did little Jimmy cheat on his math test last week; the usual small-town speculations. Not that morning, though. Not the morning of December…

  • 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…

    A DUI arrest is a stressful event for many reasons, one of which is that it triggers two separate legal proceedings: a case in criminal court and an administrative hearing with the DMV for the suspension of your license.

  • Should California Adopt the Marijuana Breathalyzer?

    Matthew Wallin
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:01 pm
    Marijuana Breathalyzer California law enforcement could greatly benefit from Breathalyzer technology that is able to detect both alcohol and drugs.  Unlike alcohol, it is far more challenging for law enforcement to quickly and accurately determine driver impairment due to drug use.  According to a recent study, researchers indicate that there is an ability to identify the presence of THC in users for limited periods of time following subjects’ inhalation of marijuana. Much like portable alcohol screening (PAS) devices used in DUI alcohol investigations, marijuana Breathalyzer technology…

    Young Klein & Associates
    23 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am

    The content published below is composed of extracts from externally published articles. They make very compelling and illuminating reading. While they are not directly related to the Simon Gittany case, they show that depending on forensics to aid in conviction may not be quite as scientifically reliable as it is generally believed and accepted to be.

    How innocent people are wrongfully convicted If you have been accused or arrested for a crime, you are at the beginning of what could become a long journey through the criminal justice system. The process may vary somewhat from state to state. If the case goes beyond the committal phase to trial, this is when the justice machine appears to kick in. In reality the very fact that your case went to the committal phase is an indication that the prosecution has quite likely made up its mind. The material that will be presented to the media has been decided on and the people who produce the content…
