Huntsman and Curiel are expected to face murder charges in Shasta County. They were arraigned on felony charges of torture, child abuse and mayhem in Plumas County Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon. They are being held on $1 million bail. Altilough legally a minor, Curiel is being charged as an adult in Plumas County. A felony torture conviction carries a possible sentence of life in prison. Huntsman is reportedly the sister of Wayne Huntsman, the Santa Cruz man who was indicted for starting the massive King Fire in Eldorado County last year. Wayne Huntsman has a criminal history that reportedly includes a burglary in Plumas County. and education codes, according to Lerch. For example, California community colleges are open admission, said Reid. "So how do we do a bachelor's degree that has admissions requirements?" "Direction from the state has been slower than we would have liked," Lerch said. "The process is new for everybody and it has exposed some barriers, some weaknesses." Recruitment Lerch said he was "frustrated" by the slow progress of the state guidelines. "It's handcuffing us" when it comes to recruiting students. Reid said he, too, was frustrated that the state "can't get it together." He has taken the advice of a vice-chanceilor who told him to "do what you need to do to make it work." FRC has laid all the groundwork and Reid is ready to come barreling out of the chute as soon as the state opens the gate. "Give me my reins and let me run," he said. Reid said he expects the bachelor's program to eventually enroll 25 to 3O students per grade level, freshman through senior, for 100 to 120 students total. He said he thinks the program will ultimately graduate 20 students a year. Reid said he expects a number of current students to apply. While that may give him a leg up on filling the available spots, it presents a recruiting challenge. "How do I promote our four-year program without devaluing the two-year program?" he said. For students considering four-year schools, one selling point of the community college bachelor's degrees will be their Price. Total cost to students for the degrees is estimated at $10,000, according to the chancellor's office. That's one-third of what students can expect to pay at state colleges and universities, Reid said. Prospective students can fill out a "statement of interest" on the college's website at Accreditation The program still needs to be accredited. The college expects to hear any day whether the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges will approve its Substantive Change Proposal, which outlines the course of study. FRC submitted its plan in October. The committee that vets those proposals met in November, but its agenda was so full it was unable to review FRC's proposal. It plans to do so in December, Lerch told trustees last month. If the proposal is accepted, there will likely be a one-day site visit within the next six months to watch instruction in the program, Lerch said. Meanwhile, the college has added full-time faculty in agriculture. "Some faculty is still to be determined," Lerch said. "We may have a local veterinarian teach some classes." Reid said the specialized nature of some of the classes would require adjunct faculty.
