In California, ten alleged gang members, including two brothers and a mother-daughter team, were charged with selling methamphetamine in July 2013. The 10 were charged in eight separate indictments that were originally sealed but opened during the fall of 2013 as the individuals were taken into custody on the drug charges. The last of the people to have their indictment unsealed was a 27-year-old man. Nine of the 10 were being held to await further proceedings, their pretrial detentions serving to disrupt what a lawyer with the U.S. Attorney's Office called a substantial gang presence in the area.
Former San Francisco Forty-Niner Kwame Harris was acquitted of two felony-level charges last week after the evidence was presented before a jury. However, the jury returned guilty verdicts on several misdemeanor offenses. The charges flowed from allegations that the former lineman got into a domestic dispute with his former boyfriend while eating at a Menlo Park restaurant in August 2012.
