    A man was sentenced Friday to one year in county jail for checking his cell phone while driving, an action that resulted in him rear-ending another car on Highway 12 in Santa Rosa, killing two people, the Sonoma County district attorney said.

    Eight badly neglected dogs were found abandoned in a home in San Francisco’s Mission District on Wednesday, city Animal Care and Control officials said. The two Chihuahuas and six Tibetan and Wheaton terrier mixes were left behind in squalid conditions after San Francisco sheriff’s deputies served an eviction notice on their guardians, officials said. When the animal care officers rescued the pups, they suffered from malnutrition, fur loss, overgrown nails, parasites and skin conditions — maladies that point to “a long term lack of care. One dog had to be transported to a hospital for…

    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…

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.

    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…
  • Executions Gone Awry

    According to a 2012 study published by the British Journal of American Legal Studies, 3% of all executions within the United States run into complications.

I have collected what I believe to be some of the worst cases of executions gone terribly awry and I will allow for the reader to…

    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.

    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…
