Can an employer perform a background check for a DUI charge?

For some people in Sacramento, driving is a standard part of their job. Of course, semi-truck drivers, bus drivers and taxi drivers may come to mind, but sometimes even people who work in sales or other businesses have to regularly travel as part of their job duties.

Report: California bail system punishes the poor

One of the pillars of our nation's criminal justice system is that all people must be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, when people accused of crimes are unable to afford bail, they may be kept in county jail a long time before they ever see a resolution to the charges they face.

Criminal defense: how are crimes generally classified?

In general, most states, including California, establish three categories of crimes: infractions, misdemeanors and felonies. It is important to know the differences between these categories, as the way a person's case will be treated in their state's court system depends on which category the alleged crime falls under.

Can field sobriety tests be challenged?

Whether or not you committed a crime, being pulled over by a law enforcement officer can be a very stressful experience. The thought that doing or saying the wrong thing at the wrong time could result in criminal charges or worse is enough to make most people nervous.

Police arrest three in reported drug bust

Sacramento residents most likely already know that being convicted of drug charges can have serious consequences. Depending on the type of drug and the suspected activity (such as the sale of drugs, the possession of drugs or the trafficking of drugs), it is possible that those accused of drug crimes could face incarceration, fines or both. In one recent incident, Vacaville police have placed three individuals under arrest after police found what they claim to be a large amount of several types of drugs in a Ford Bronco.
