    Friday | via Contra Costa Times 

    After several years of across-the-board declines in crime, Richmond is seeing an increase in homicides, robberies and nonfatal shootings, a trend partially replicated in other cities. The spike is being blamed by police, in part, on the transfer of nonviolent criminals from state prisons to local jails, and Proposition 47, which reclassified most nonserious and nonviolent property and drug crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor.

    Should we pay criminals NOT to commit crimes? Law enforcement leaders often say only a fractional part of populations commit violent crime. Political and business leaders in a California city heard that and said, why don't we pay that small group to keep them from crime?

What to do when DA has wrongly told ruling Judge information about me?
Just had my arraignment hearing for a DUI, and I asked for more time in order to hire an attorney. At the arraignment the DA told the judge that he has a call report from a month ago of someone fitting my description driving a car with my license plate, weaving on the road. I think this information prejudices me with the Judge in my case. I heard I can file a peremptory challenge for a new Judge, if I do so in 10 days. I've read a lot of questions in here and the answers are full of "get an attorney." I will get an attorney. But I don't want to miss the 10-day window if this a decent way to go. I would like to hear what some options are for when the DA has shared too much (or inappropriate) information. Thank you.
You only get on challenge for the judge. Don't want to waste it. Speak to an attorney about procedures. If your...
My boyfriend was arrested for DUI with an accident/injuries. First offense.
He was attempting to make an illegal u-turn and slowed to approximately 35 miles per hour and was hit from behind. A total of five cars were involved in the accident. I don't think that he should be charged with 100 percent of the accident as the person behind him was clearly traveling too close. What are the consequences? Will he do additional jail time? What should he expect? Thank you.
If your boyfriend is charged with DUI causing injury one of the legal issues will be whether or not he caused the...

Will I be able to get a restricted license after 90 days?
Hi, I got a dui when I was 18, I never went to court and I never got convicted. Although it still processed with the dmv and I had to follow the 1 year suspension requirement and an sr22 to get my license back. Now I just recently got another dui, this time I am 21, I wont be so lucky with the court this time, and my license suspends today. My question is, will I be able to get a restricted license after 90 days? Since this is my first court dui. And my second dmv dui. Ill only be required to do a 3 month school program..

Dui, dmv, will my liscence be suspended as a second charge even tho I was not convicted the first charge?
I got a dui when I was 19, I never went to court and I never got convicted, however my liscence remained suspended for 1 year, I had not realized I never got a dui but I still went and got a sr22. Well now im 21 and I unfortunately got another dui, now I might not be so lucky this time. So my question is will my liscence be suspended for a year even if I never got convicted for the first one? It should regularly be 4 months suspension for a first dui. I am in california. Thank you
The answer is yes (assuming you lose your DMV hearing). Your license will be suspended for a year. The DMV and the...
