New California Law Addresses Cyber-Bullying

New California Law Addresses Cyber-Bullying

Decades ago, teens and young adults hung out at the mall, went to skate parks and played sports. Today, socializing has taken the form of surfing the internet or texting with cell phones. With the popularity of social media, teens have access to an open forum of negative comments that can be seen by hundreds, even thousands of people.

New, Tougher DUI Penalty for the New Year

The New Year usually means new laws, and when it comes to drunk driving, the penalties are getting tougher. While penalties vary from state to state, fines, community service, possible jail times and driver’s license suspensions are standard. However, starting January 1, 2012, repeat DUI offenders could get their license taken away for 10 years – a big difference from the 3-year suspension in place the previous year.


DUI charges are serious. If you or someone you know is charged with a DUI, it is important to seek the help of a DUI lawyer. Insurance rates will increase, your chances for employment opportunities may be impacted, your conviction will show up and stay on your criminal record, and with these new laws, repeat offenses can end up taking your driving rights away for 10 years.
