  • Teacher Arrested in Connection with Escaped Inmates ...

    Monday Feb 1 | via WBAL-AM Baltimore 

    The 44-year-old jail teacher arrested in connection with the escape of three maximum-security inmates at a California lockup will be released Monday on her own recognizance, Orange County Prosecutor Tony Rackauckas said in a news conference. The Orange County Sheriff's Department said last week that Nooshafarin Ravaghi played a "significant role" in the jailbreak and accused her of providing the inmates with a printed photograph from Google Earth that would have shown an image the entire jail complex.

  • "Nick is Nuts" Part 2 - Is Nick Nuts?

    Tuesday Jan 26 | via Patch.com 

    It's pretty clear that our own residents are behind the recall movement and it's an insult to their integrity to claim that they are puppets of Councilman Nick. It also isn't much of an answer to the recall supporters' allegations to claim that Nick is Nuts.

Hit by a drunk driver, went to chiropractor for 4 months (3 times a week). What's a fair settlement?
I was involved in an auto accident (stopped at a red light) when a dunk driver was speeding, slammed into the left back side of my rental vehicle, she walked away from the scene & walked home. She was arrested with DUI. I retained an accident attorney and received chiropractic care for 4 months for 2-3 times a week. The attorney is somewhat difficult to get ahold of, and hasn't been very attentive or informative the entire time, and we are coming to a close, and have requested the medical bills be forwarded to the attorney so that this can be done. What would be a fair settlement amount? I just want to know what to expect and know how they calculate this sort of thing. I also missed a week and a half of work, because the pain was pretty bad during those times. Any input? Thank you!!!
Sorry, but no lawyer on this site can answer your question other than to say the only lawyer who could come close to...

At minimum, do I have the possibility of getting this dui reduced to DRY reckless?
FEB 15, 2013 9:30 PM: Driving home from dinner in Lake Forest, CA, I ran into a "Driver License/Sobriety" checkpoint OCSD Lake Forest, on NB Muirlands past intersection of Ridge Route. Checkpoint was not readily identifiable as such at all and upon approach appeared to be after hours road construction site. No signs, lights, or cones placed before the intersection at Ridge Route (being the only safe/legal detour) and no marked vehicles visible from street. 367 report states PC being because I stopped at the checkpoint and narrative was filed and dated 2/20/13. Breath BAC .10 on scene, Blood BAC .09 at station 2 hours later. I have reasonable defense for Breath BAC being under .08 at time of stop and issues with Deputy's credibility in administering tests. Arraignment took 6 months to file.
It sounds like you may have several defenses and legal challenges to the stop and the possibly illegal checkpoint....
Pulled over for DUI due to THIRD top brake light broken on my 2007 SUV. Is that a probable cause?
The top third brake light was completely out. Emitting no light. The other 2 lower brake lights were in good condition as they normally are. My car is a regular sized 2007 SUV. In CALIFORNIA, is it illegal to have that third brake light out? Is this probable cause to pull you over? I thought there was a law saying the minimum brake lights needed is 2. Anything above 2 is extra and it not required by law. As long as none of my brake lights were emitting a glaring light, it should be OK right? The police report said that I was pulled over for the broken light. I was not swerving or anything else. If it is legal, would this be grounds to suppress evidence after being pulled over? Thank You
The stop is legitimate. Vehicle Code section 24252(a) requires that all lighting as originally installed on the car be...

Is it worth to appeal a DMV hearing?
My daughter who is 17 years old was charged with DUI of .01 in California. She went to the DMV hearing and she got her license suspended for a year. We still have to go to court for the same issue. Is it worth to appeal the DMV hearing? Or is it a waste of time? If it is worth to appeal, is this a form that I can fill out, or do I really need an attorney to do so? Thank you! BB
After a DMV hearing, you can appeal the decision, but without having had an attorney up front, the record may not be...
