The in- formation is obtained through the court and the district attor- ney's office. The dates printed reflect time of processing, al- though the incident in question may have occurred years earli- er. The fact that someone has been charged with a crime and is being processed for it does not constitute guilt under the California court system. If the district attorney determines there is insufficient evidence to continue prosecuting the case, it may be dismissed or the charges may be amended. In some cases, Plea bargaining also is permitted by the court and the district attorney. The headlines that acconLpany each case should not be construed as a statement about a de- fendant's guilt or innocence; rather, the headlines are in- tended as short descriptions of the type of case in question.

Kaufman as a re- sult of Swisher's plea of no contest to simple marijuana possession, a misdemeanor. 60 days Richard B.

The fact that someone has been in- volved in an automobile acci- dent does not constitute Uabili- ty or fault. In addition, the re- porting CHP agency deter- mines whether injuries in the accident are characterized as minor, moderate, major or fa- tal. Highway 395 Two Chilcoot residents re- ceived minor injuries Sunday, April 29, at 6:45 p.m. Ravyn Webb, 21, was dri- ving a 1985 Toyota Corolla southbound on Highway 395 at approximately 65-70 miles per hour. She allowed her attention to be distracted by adjusting her vehicle's radio. She allowed her car to drift into the center divider. She then braked and veered to the right to avoid hitting a pole, but she lost control and the vehicle ran off the west side of the roadway, where it overturned twice. Her car came to rest on its right side and the two occu- pants were able to climb out. Despite not wearing their seat belts, Webb and 16-year- old Vanessa Webb only sus- tained minor injuries. They sought their own med- ical attention. Highway 31111, med~ of Scott Road No injuries were reported as five residents of Cedar City, Utah, were involved in a single-vehicle incident Sun- day, April 29, at 10:15 a.m. Curtis N. Thomas, 42, was driving a 2001 Ford Taurus southbound on Highway 395 north of Scott Road at 70 mph. For some unknown reason, he allowed his vehicle to drift off the roadway and onto the dirt center median. Once in the center median, the vehicle was then on a col- lision course with a paddle marker. The driver swerved to the right in an effort to avoid it, but collided with the paddle marker and skidded out of control across the southbound lanes of Highway 395. The vehicle continued out of control onto the west shoul- der and down an embank- ment, subsequently overturn- ing. The vehicle came to rest on its top. Lack of injuries was attrib- uted to the use of seat belts.

The newspaper does not report suspects' names in arrests for public intoxication or drunk driving (unless accompanied by a more serious charge, such as probation violation or a felony). The fact that someone has been arrested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never ap- pear in court if the district at- torney determines there is in- sufficient evidence to prosecute the case. If the amount of bail is not listed, the suspect is re. leased without bail. The news- paper attempts to list the age of suspects whenever they are pro- vided by the sheriff's depart- ment.
