It can be a harrowing experience to be told that one may face penalties for allegedly taking part in a crime. One woman in California was recently charged with felonies after reportedly using drugs and getting into a car accident that led to the deaths of multiple people. However, the 52-year-old woman is now facing new drug charges with lighter penalties.
A state senator was recently arrested on drunk driving charges in California. In this case, the man -- Ben Hueso from San Diego -- legally remains innocent of the DUI charges filed against him unless and until the government can actually prove his guilt according to the strict standards of our criminal justice system. His arrest took place on a Friday morning, authorities said.
