April 2016 Archives

Repeated drunk driving offender arrested again

A California man was arrested for suspected drunk driving in Petaluma on April 18 near a convenience store. A records check revealed that it was the man's fourth violation for drunk driving within a 10-year period and that he was on probation at the time for previous felony drunk driving charges.

Former Raiders star facing DUI charges

The California Highway Patrol has reported that former Oakland Raiders lineman Khalif Barnes was taken into custody on April 17 after he allegedly failed a series of field sobriety tests in Alameda County. Barnes spent seven seasons in Oakland after signing with the Raiders in 2009. The offensive tackle is currently a free agent.

Dealing with a California traffic ticket

At first glance, it appears that getting a speeding ticket in California will not be that expensive. The base fine for going up to 15 miles per hour over the speed limit is just $35, and the base fine for going more than 15 miles over the speed limit is $70. However, this is misleading because the state tacks on a variety of fines and surcharges.

How Ponzi schemes work

California residents have likely read stories or watched television news reports that deal with Ponzi schemes, but they may not know how this type of investment fraud is carried out. The perpetrators usually offer investors the opportunity to earn significant returns with little or no risk, but these returns are rarely genuine. Instead, money put into the scheme by new participants is used to pay existing investors until the scheme eventually collapses.
