California sex crimes convicts file lawsuit

Anyone who is convicted of a crime can likely expect some sort of punishment, ranging from probation and fines to prison time. However, sex crimes convictions often carry consequences that last much longer than a person's probation or imprisonment.

Two such convicts have recently sued the state of California, claiming that the state has not kept the information up-to-date as required by law, which has adversely impacted them.

California truck accidents: Crashed tour bus improperly registere

Due to the size of the United States, many cities have unique features that those who do not live in the area may have never experienced. As a result, a tourist may travel for hundreds, or even thousands, of miles in order to better explore another city. One option for such tourists is the utilization of a tour bus. Those who visit California and choose such an option likely feel relatively safe from car or truck accidents. Unfortunately, several people were recently injured in a tour bus accident.
