The newspaper does not report suspects" names in arrests for public intoxication or drunk driving (unless accompa- nied by a more serious charge, such as probation violation or a felony). The fact that someone has been arrested and charged ivith a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney deter- mines there is insufficient evi- dence to prosecute the case. If the amount of bail is not listed, the suspect is released without bail. The newspaper attempts to list the age of suspects whenever they are prooided by the sheriff's depart- rnent. Newspaper policy The following cases indicate processing by the Plumas County Superior Court. The information is obtained through the court and the dis- trict attorney's office. The dates printed reflect time of processing, although the inci- dent in question may have oc- curred years earlier. The fact that someone has been charged with a crime and is being processed for it does not constitute guilt under the Cali- fornia court system. If the dis- trict attorney determines there is insufficient evidence to con- tinue 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 accompany OaIte. ~'~ .... :~ PLUMAS COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPT.
