    Friday Jan 27 | via The Daily Breeze 

    Jurors took about an hour Friday to find a Torrance man guilty of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl from a Gardena car wash, dismissing - and even laughing - at his story that an unidentified drug dealer named Flaco committed the crime. Michael David Ikeler, 38, stared straight ahead, showing no reaction as a Torrance Superior Court clerk read the jury's verdict, convicting him of one count of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14 and two counts of sexual penetration of a child under age 10. Jurors also found a special allegation that the crime was committed during the course of a kidnapping to be true.

Do I still need to install interlock device after 2 years
I received a dui 2 years ago. I have paid all fines but I still haven't installed an interlock device. I have gotten use to riding my bicycle. License has been suspended for 2 years now. Do I still need to install the interlock for the 6 months to get my license reinstated?
Does your consent judgment, probation terms provide for a 2 year suspension first and then an additional 6 months of...
How long is an operator's (officer) certification valid in California for breathalyzer?
I found through discovery that officer was initially certified 8 years ago. Is there a requirement for refresher courses or re-certification in California?

Will DUI affect my citizenship?
I have lived in US for 22 years. I want to apply for the US citizenship. However, 15 years ago, I caused traffic accident and there was no injury; besides, there was a small amount of drug found in my car. I joined the program for the first offender. In my case, will DUI affect my citizenship application?
Assuming you were only convicted of a DUI and no other charges relating to drugs, a DUI from 15yrs ago should not...
Will a DUI cause my citizenship application to be denied?
I got a DUI about 13 years ago. I spent one night in jail and had to do a 12 step program. I am not an alcoholic just made a mistake.
A single mIsdemeanor DUI conviction should not prevent you from becoming a citizen. Best of luck
Will I get an extension for my DUI requirements?
I was sentenced in March of 2016 at the LA Metro Court of a first time misdemeanor DUI with aggravating factors and converted fines to community service (can't do labor due to disability). I was given one year to complete my requirements. I still have to complete: 200 hours (out of 400 hours) of community service, 3 months of my 9 month alcohol program, MADD & HAMM classes. I had difficulty with paying for my alcohol program / moving / divorcing, I started all my requirements late due to moving last summer. The lawyer saw in November my progress, and was okay with everything, I'm at the same progress as then because of finally getting a job. The MADD & HAMM classes are not offered where I live (Santa Maria, CA) and it's difficult for me to get to Los Angeles where I was convicted. Will the judge give me an extension? How long can I ask for? Should I contact the court BEFORE my court date?
YES, the judge will probably give you an extension but you should ask for it ahead of time. Be proactive. You already...
Completing dui terms and conditions on time?
I got a dui about 9 months ago. The court gave me 1 year to complete all the terms and conditions of my probation. I have completed the dui class, the HAMM and MADD courses and paid about half of the fine. If I am unable to pay the complete amount of the fine by the last day it is due what should I do? Appear in court and request an extension? Do i have to see the judge? Thanks
Sounds like a trip to court is in order. Either you or your lawyer will need to go. Better your lawyer.
