Pair uses drones to smuggle drugs

On Aug. 12, two men in California pleaded guilty to smuggling drugs into the United States from Mexico.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, this was the first-ever drug seizure on California's border that involved a drone.

Alternatives to jail that California judges may choose

Judges in California frequently find themselves facing defendants who have no prior record of violence or criminal behavior or who are charged with minor infractions. Sending such people to jail may seem excessive and unnecessary, and incarcerating non-violent offenders places additional burdens on the correctional system and costs taxpayers money. As a result, judges may choose from a number of non-custodial sentences when they feel that jail time is inappropriate.

How to challenge a breath test after a DUI

If you were stopped for drunk driving in California, you were probably asked by the police officer to take a breath test. Intended to get an accurate reading of a person's blood-alcohol level, breath tests are often key components of drunk driving cases. If you were arrested for DUI, however, it is important to know that these tests can be challenged.
