On March 21, 2013, the Glendale Police Department was contacted by a victim regarding a sexual assault. The victim, 21 year old female from Illinois, told officers that she answered an ad on Craigslist regarding an employment opportunity as a personal assistant. The suspect agreed to meet the victim for an interview in Hollywood. The suspect met the victim outside a designated building and told her he was running late for an appointment.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto’s (D-Los Angeles) bill to help local governments create dog parks for their residents passed the Assembly Judiciary Committee yesterday with broad bipartisan support and a vote of 9-0. The idea for the bill came from a local city councilmember, who expressed to Gatto that cities would open more dog parks, but for the liability concerns. Gatto’s AB 265 limits liability for cities and counties which operate dog parks and protects them from litigants who claim, for example, that they were unaware of the potential dangers (i.e., dog bites) that can occur at such parks. “Dog parks help build safer and stronger communities by providing a location for neighbors to interact while training and socializing their dogs,” said Gatto. “We should not allow li-

13-Year-old saves Blair student’s life with Heimlich maneuver

Groundbreaking for railroad crossing underpass

By Terry Miller

Nogales St. project will replace congested railroad crossing

The school nurse, Gina DiGiovanni, called Blair parent Vincent Sime Tagnes at his office March 1. She immediately let him know his son was okay and that Jordan was a hero. Jordan Sime Tagnes had apparently just saved a fellow student’s life by dislodging some food ( corn nuts ) by means of the Heimlich maneuver. The popular nuts apparently got stuck in the student’s throat. “It was apparent that the food was impeding the student’s breathing and Jordan knew exactly what to do. It was incredible,” DiGiovanni said. On that March 1, Jordan Sime Tagnes , 13, saw his friend turn bright red and immediately rushed to his aid in the outside playground during the lunch break . He knew something was terribly wrong ….and performed a technique he said he ”had seen in the movies” to save his friend’s life. It worked like a charm. Maricela Brambila, the vice Principal said that Jordan rushed up to her at lunch

break and told her immediately what he had done and then she contacted the school nurse for further evaluation. The life he saved was that of a very appreciative classmate. For his efforts, Jordan received a special risk taker certificate from the school and the accolades from people far and wide, but especially the thankful parents of the recipient of the abdominal thrust so expertly administered by Jordan Sime Tange. For those of us who may have never done this, perhaps now would be a good time to learn: Maricela Brambila, said that discussions have taken place at school after this incident and that all teachers and aids are qualified in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver. For a conscious person who is sitting or standing, position yourself behind the person and reach your arms around his or her waist. Place your fist, thumb side in, just above the person's navel and grab the fist tightly with your other hand.


Jordan Sime Tagnes

Pull your fist abruptly upward and inward to increase airway pressure behind the obstructing object and force it from the windpipe. If the person is conscious and lying on his or her back, straddle the person facing the head. Push your grasped fist upward and inward in a maneuver similar to the one above. You may need to repeat the procedure several times before the object is dislodged…Don’t forget to call 9-1-1.

Federal, state, local and railroad officials gathered Friday for a groundbreaking ceremony for a $110.5 million six-lane roadway underpass and a doubletrack railroad bridge to be constructed over Nogales Street, immediately north of the Pomona (60) Freeway in the City of Industry and unincorporated Los Angeles County. The crossing is used daily by about 40 freight trains, 12 Metrolink commuter trains and 42,680 vehicles and is ranked no. 5 in the State for grade separation priority based on congestion and collision metrics. The congested crossing is among the most hazardous in Los Angeles County with nine train-vehicle collisions recorded by the Federal Railroad Administration over the last 10 years. “This important project will reduce vehicle emissions, eliminate collisions, train horn noise and vehicle delay and create nearly 2,000 jobs over three years of construction,” said El Monte Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias, Acting Chair of the Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority (ACE). “We thank our funding partners for providing the support needed to move this project into construction.” To improve motorist safety and reduce delays along the construction detour route, the first phase of the project will involve widening a three-quartermile-long bottleneck segment of Gale Avenue and Walnut Drive at Nogales Street. Once the widening and construction of a temporary railroad crossing are completed within 12-18 months, Nogales Street will be closed for underpass and bridge construction for approximately 18 months. “The Nogales Street project will both facilitate and mitigate the impacts of goods movement by rail through our communities,” said Congresswoman Grace Napolitano, a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. “I will continue my efforts in Congress to secure federal funding for nationally significant freight projects such as the ACE grade separation projects.”

“I continue to be impressed by the ACE Construction Authority’s strong record in securing funding for and constructing its program of important grade separation projects. I am proud to be their champion in our nation’s capitol,” said Congresswoman Judy Chu, whose district includes the single largest ACE project, the San Gabriel Trench grade separation project. “Trade is a major economic engine for our regional economy and remains one of my top priorities in Congress. Time after time it has been proven that new infrastructure projects can be built in an environmentally sustainable way – the ACE grade separations continue that vision,” said Congressman Alan Lowenthal, a longtime legislative leader on goods movement issues. “I strongly support the ACE Construction Authority and its grade separation program, which is a priority for our region and in Sacramento,” said State Senator Bob Huff, Vice Chair of the San Gabriel Valley State Legislative Caucus and a founding Board Member of the ACE Construction Authority. “Our region is still struggling to regain its footing in the aftermath of the Great Recession. The economy is slowly improving, and it is important to note that the Nogales Street project alone will create nearly 2,000 well paid construction jobs over three years of construction,” said Assemblywoman Norma Torres, whose district includes several ACE grade separation projects. The project is an investment in a program of grade separations along the Alameda Corridor-East Trade Corridor, which accommodates about 60 percent of the containers moved from the nation’s busiest container ports in the San Pedro Bay to the rest of the country via the region’s rail network. The Union Pacific Railroad mainline is one of the busiest sections of freight rail in the nation, with a current daily total of 40 trains per day projected to increase to 104 trains by 2025 as trade rebounds at the San Pedro Bay ports, the nation’s busiest container port complex.

Los Angeles Master Chorale presents free annual concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall - Friday, April 26 The Los Angeles Master Chorale opens the doors of the Walt Disney Concert Hall to the city free-of-charge for its 24th Annual Los Angeles Master Chorale High School Choir Festival on Friday, April 26, 2013. One of the largest high school choir festivals in the nation, each year it showcases the remarkable vocal talents of nearly 1,000 high school students from 25 Southland schools in a massive choir conducted by Grant Gershon, the LA Master Chorale’s noted music director. The choral concert also includes several works performed by the professional Los Angeles Master Chorale Chamber Singers, which joins forces with the prestigious 80-voice Festival Honor Choir, also conducted by Gershon and comprised of students from the 25 participating schools nominated by their teachers. The community is welcome to enjoy the vitality and power of these young voices raised in song in the splendor of Disney Hall. For those who haven’t had the chance to peek inside architect Frank Gehry’s iconic concert hall in downtown Los Angeles, this is an amazing opportunity to hear and see the internationally acclaimed venue in action – for free! The massed choir performs If Music Be the Food of Love by David Dickau set to text from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night; the spiritual Keep Your Lamps arranged by André Thomas; Son de Camaguey, a Cuban folk song arranged by Stephen Hatfield; The Promise of Light by Los Angeles-based composer Georgia Stitt;

Johannes Brahms’s Der Gang zum Liebchen; and George Frideric Handel’s Baroque gem With Cheerful Notes Let All the Earth. The Festival Honor Choir and Los Angeles Master Chorale Chamber Singers perform Sure on This Shining Night by National Medal of Arts recipient Morton Lauridsen; Ricky Ian Gordon’s New Moon, which features lyrics by American poet Langston Hughes; and Panda Chant II by avantgarde multi-disciplinary artist Meredith Monk. In addition, the Los Angeles Master Chorale Chamber Singers give a brief performance that includes the world premiere of Yama no mizu by Lauren McLaren, which is based on a Haiku by prolific poet Kobayashi Issa translated into English by David G. Lanoue. It was commissioned by LAMC Associate Conductor Lesley Leighton to reflect the Chorale’s deep commitment to commissioning new works as well as to enable the participating high school students to hear a world premiere. The Los Angeles Master Chorale High School Choir Festival is one of the largest high school choir gatherings in the nation. It draws schools from the South Bay, San Fernando Valley and Westside to the San Gabriel Valley, Lakewood and Orange County. Participating choirs include Agoura High School Mixed Choir (Agoura), John Mosley, director; Arroyo High School Chamber Singers (El Monte), Jennifer Stanley, director; Baldwin Park High School (Baldwin Park), Vicki Salm-

on, director; Bassett High School Chamber Singers (La Puente), Nona Watson, director; Bellflower High School Vocal Ensemble (Bellflower), Carolyn Kelley, director; California High School Chamber Singers (Whittier), Dan Hawkins, director; Charter Oak High School Advanced Choral Ensemble (Covina), Rebecca Schmalzbach, director; Covina High School Voices (Covina), Susan Silver, director; Culver City High School Chamber Singers (Culver City), Dr. Tony Spano, director; Duarte High School Cantabile (Duarte), Clari Hsu, director; El Monte High School A Cappella Choir (El Monte), Joel Whisler, director; Fullerton Union High School Vocal Ensemble (Fullerton), Scott Hedgecock, director; Grant High School Vocal Ensemble (Valley Glen), Marsha Lynne Taylor, director; Hoover High School Chamber Singers (Glendale), Beth RicheySullivan, director; Lakewood High School Madrigal Singers (Lakewood), Ralph Siemsen, director; Mark Keppel High School Aztec Singers (Alhambra), Tony Azeltine, director; Montebello High School Golden Keys (Montebello), Nancy Schwartz, director.

AB 34 also addresses the deficit of recognizing the contributions from the Chicano/Latino community and other people of color in California history. According to the California Research Bureau, of the 1,920 sites recognized by the California’s Office of Historic Preservation’s website with descriptive information available: 0.2% designations were associated with the labor movement; 0.9% were associated with the civil

briel High School Matador Choir (San Gabriel), Cecilia Revilla, director; South High School Southland Singers (Torrance), Elizabeth Turner, director; St. Monica Academy High School Choir (Pasadena), Stephen Grimm, director; William Howard Taft High School Vocal Ensemble (Woodland Hills), Tom Pease, director; Venice High School Allegros (Los Angeles), Wendy Kornbeck, director. The yearlong in-school program presented by the Chorale has five components. Several months prior to the festival, all participating Choral Directors meet with Gershon to review the repertoire he has selected. Directors then work in the classroom with their choirs on the music. During the spring, members from the LA Master Chorale Chamber Singers, the Chorale’s outreach ensemble, visit participating

choirs and conduct masterclasses for the students and directors. A month before the festival, each school attends one of two area rehearsals conducted by Gershon, who works with the singers on their musicianship, musical interpretation and tone balance. The joint rehearsals also provide an opportunity for the students to sing as part of a much larger choir in preparation for the festival, which is the final component of the outreach program. Then, on the day

of the festival, all of the schools join together for the first time and Gershon conducts a final dress rehearsal and concert, which is free to the public. The Los Angeles Master Chorale’s High School Choir Festival is FREE and seating is first come, first served. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is located at 111 South Grand Avenue at First Street in Los Angeles. For information, please call (213) 972-7282 or visit HSCF.

California student newspaper adviser placed on leave pending investigation; instructed not to talk Administrators at Pasadena City College have placed the student newspaper’s faculty adviser on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into undisclosed misconduct. Assistant journalism professor Warren Swil, who has advised the Pasadena City College Courier since 2007, was instructed last Thursday to leave campus immediately. Swil declined to comment, saying he was instructed not to talk about his leave. He referred questions to his attorney, Michael Anderson, who could not be reached for comment. School officials have declined to elaborate on the nature of the misconduct allegation. In an official statement from the college issued Sunday, the school said the dismissal was “not connected in any way with Professor Swil’s duties as advisor to the student newspaper, The Courier, nor with his duties as a journalism teacher.” In the absence of further explanation, faculty and students say they’re concerned that Swil’s quick removal might have to do with the newspaper’s coverage of the administration. Both the student government and an ad hoc faculty committee issued votes of no-confidence in President Mark Rocha’s leadership during the Board of Trustees meeting in March. The source of suspicion is a routine visit by Rocha to a journalism class in which he “spent the time reaming them about their coverage and [said] that they’re not doing a good job,” said Mikki Bolliger, who advised

The Courier from 1973 to 2007 and who is temporarily filling Swil’s advising and teaching duties. “Two days later — whoops, the adviser’s gone,” Bolliger said. “I don’t believe in coincidences. This is too much of a coincidence.” During the meeting with journalism students, Rocha dismissed the no-confidence votes as inaccurate and misleading opinions and addressed ways the college can “move forward,” Editor-in-Chief Nicholas Saul said. Rocha chastised the students and “talked down” to them for wrongly worded questions and unfair coverage, Saul said. “There are a lot of good things that are going unreported,” The Courier quotes Rocha as saying to the students. “When there’s a conflict in the college, you have to be responsible and report the truth.” PCC Faculty Association President Roger Marheine said in an email he’s never seen a president “cajole student reporters” as he did during the press conference. Marheine claims the school violated due process in removing Swil. Marheine said that Swil should have been notified of an allegation first and not placed on leave unless an investigation determined that there is credence to the claims. He said the rushed dismissal reflects an attempt to chill student journalism by a college president who “now conducts himself in a reckless manner reflecting a desperation that could ultimately lead to his leaving the college.” “In my personal view,

the violation of due process also documents the actions of a college president who is desperate and clumsily attempting to regain the upper hand,” Marheine said. Saul said it wasn’t clear whether the decision to place Swil on leave was tied to the paper’s coverage. “They probably thought we were biased in some sense, but in my viewpoint we were just covering [the no-confidence votes],” he said, adding that students “slapped a big ol’ headline on the newspaper because it’s unprecedented.” “As of now, I can’t really say the whole administration’s idea of our coverage had anything to do with putting him on leave,” he said. “But I’m sure some people may be happy about it.” Saul also took issue with the suddenness of Swil’s removal and the lack of due process. “I understand that once an official complaint is filed against a person, the school can’t ignore it,” he said. “But is there some sort of protocol that they have to tell them ... or investigate the matter before doing it?” Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center, said the gag order prevents Swil from properly asserting his innocence, even though the college has publicly named him as the subject of an investigation. “Generally speaking, a broad gag order on a public employee is unenforceable under the First Amendment,” LoMonte said. “It’s unfair to order the employee to refrain from defending himself.”

Holden’s bill to aide California farmers passes key committee Assemblymember Chris Holden’s (D-Pasadena) bill to help California farmers and boost the state’s agricultural economy has been approved in the Assembly Accountability and Administrative Review Committee – and just in time. A recent news article reported that California’s dairy farmers are being wooed by other states. “It just makes sense to put California-grown crops, livestock and dairy first,” said Assemblymember Holden. “When I read that dairy farmers were being lured by other states with friendlier business climates, I knew we were on the right track with this legislation. AB 199 will ultimately help the state by promoting job growth. It will also

keep California funds in the state to pay California wage earners and support California families.” Under AB 199, public institutions such as prisons, Veteran’s Homes or hospitals would have to give California agricultural products priority if the price is within 5% of the lowest out-of-state competitor. School districts would be required to purchase California grown products as long as they weren’t more expensive. Noelle Cremers with the California Farm Bureau testified, “California's farmers are incredibly pleased with AB 199 requiring California institutions to purchase California agricultural products. This bill will give more Californians

that opportunity to experience the amazing variety of products grown in California.” “AB 199 has not only an economic benefit, but it also promotes the health benefits of buying locally. California food growers and food manufacturers adhere to the highest health and safety standards in the country, which means buying from them is also the safest and healthiest choice,” concluded Holden. AB 199 is supported by California Farm Bureau, California Dairies, Apple Commission, Western Agricultural Processors, California Association for Recreational Fishing and California Black Chamber of Commerce.

NRA recommends school staff carry guns No word yet what others think of the NRA’s latest publicity stunt. But suffice to say, it’s controversial. The National Rifle Association-sponsored study is recommending schools across America train and arm at least one staff member.

Former Arkansas Republican Rep. Asa Hutchinson headed the study. Hutchinson said the NRA dropped an earlier recommendation that retired police officers and other volunteers be armed to provide school safety. He said the idea was opposed by school superin-

tendents. The NRA announced its plan at a news conference a week before the Senate begins debating gun control legislation. Hutchinson said the 225-page study cost $1 million. Several NRA-supplied security guards were at the event.

Climb into the mountains aboard Palm Aerial Tram By Greg Aragon There are some Southern California attractions that I have to visit once a year and the Palm Springs Aerial Tram is one of them. Like Griffith Observatory or the LA Zoo, this thing is a true must-do for any cool tourist or fun-seeking native. A friend and I recently snuck away to the tram after a night at nearby Morongo Casino Resort and Spa. It was a beautiful spring morning and we were ready for adventure. Our getaway began at the base of Mt. Jacinto, where we boarded the pumpkinshaped tram, which has been dubbed the eighth wonder of the world. Once inside, the conductor closed the doors and the tram car began to climb straight up the rocky face of the mountain. The car begins its journey at Valley Station at an elevation of 2,643’ and ends at Mountain Station at 8,516 ft above sea level. As the 80-passenger tram scales the mountain, visitors are transported through

five unique ecosystems – a change in landscape and life, equivalent to a drive from Sonora, Mexico to the Arctic Circle in Alaska. It makes this trip in about 11 minutes! During the journey, the car is pulled up 12,000 ft of cable and passes through five huge, support towers. At each tower, the tram shimmies and shakes, giving riders a roller coaster thrill. And while inside the tram, passengers need not fight for a descent viewing spot because the car rotates 360 degrees and everyone gets a memorable view of Coachella Valley and Mt. San Jacinto. According to officials, these are the world’s largest rotating tram cars! At the top, there is a lodge-like visitor’s center and two restaurants. There is also Mt. San Jacinto State Park, which offers 54 miles of hiking trails and a few primitive campsites within a 13,000acre pristine wilderness. When we got to the top, we set out on a hike of Long Valley, following a three-quartermile-long loop trail through a large meadow. The weather was a perfect 65 degrees and the meadow was lined with tall pine trees, trickling streams,

lots of native plants and grasses, and a few patches of left-over snow. Along the trail we scratched the dark brown bark of a Jeffrey pine tree (the most common tree in the valley) and breathed its natural vanilla and butterscotch scent. After hiking we got a couple cups of hot tea went at Mountain Station and then had lunch outside on a picnic table, beneath a tow-

in the world economy has never been stronger. Our ties with The People’s Republic of China in particular are deep—from the Chinese immigrants crossing the Pacific in 1848 to hosting China’s next President in Los Angeles last February,” said Governor Brown in his State of the State Address in January. “This year we will take another step to strengthen the ties between the world’s second and ninth largest economies.” The trip follows more than a year of significant

diplomatic and business exchanges between the State of California and China. In February 2012, Governor Brown welcomed His Excellency Xi Jinping, then-Vice President, and now President of China, to California. During the visit, Governor Brown announced his intention to visit China, open a trade and investment office and form a China-California Joint Task Force to drive more collaboration, investment and trade between California and China. Later in 2012, the Brown

administration convened the inaugural Joint Economic Committee between California and China’s Jiangsu Province, hosted a Chinese delegation led by the Vice Minister of China’s Ministry of Commerce and met with a Chinese delegation led by Deputy Governor Xia Geng of China’s Shandong Province. The State of California has not had a formal presence in China since the previous foreign trade offices were closed in 2003.

ability concerns to be a major barrier to creating these valuable spaces, especially in small- and medium-sized cities that cannot afford to self-insure.” Jennifer Fearing of the Humane Society of the United States echoed the social importance of dog parks, especially for animal lovers with physical ailments. “Dog parks enable senior citizens and people with disabilities who cannot always walk their dogs a safe alter-

native,” said Fearing. “The Humane Society is glad for an opportunity to support a bill with the noble goal of nurturing the human-animal bond.” There is precedent for the state stepping in to limit liability for the public good, especially for the use of public resources that come with some inherent danger. In 1997 the state imposed limited liability under certain circumstances for cities that open skate parks. State

lawmakers reasoned that more recreation opportunities were needed, but that skateboarding is inherently dangerous, and should be done at the users’ risk and without massive liability for cities and their taxpayers. “By offering our communities more sensible laws on this issue, I believe we can help make more dogs parks available in our neighborhoods, improving the lives of dog lovers and our canine companions.”

Dorothy's Place Pondering or thinking?

By Dorothy Denne No matter how much you care, some people just don't care back. You cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to the other person. These tidbits of thought are taken from an e-mail I received recently about observations of life that were made by someone. It came at about the same time I had re-read an old interview done with Dr. Dean Ornish. He said that besides being a manifestation of romantic intimacy, " can also be a manifestation of intimacy between you and your family, you and your friends, or you and members of your community." The e-mail and the interview set me to thinking. I do that sometimes, even though it is hard work. I

tend to ponder a lot, but really deep thinking takes serious concentration and, for me, solitude. Sometimes I can think while in conversation with others but then I often re-think later, in solitude, and come to completely different decisions. My improved health has allowed me to return to my favorite corner on the patio of the Peacock Cafe where I can sit in solitude, drink coffee and absorb the beauty of nature at the Arboretum. A good place to just ponder or to really think. The choice is mine. The other day I sat deciding just which I would do as I began to wallow in a bit of self-pity and maybe a little anger. I had just been let down by someone I had thought to be a friend. No matter how good friends are, they may hurt you occasionally and you forgive them for that, because they are your

friends. I pondered a bit as to whether I was in the mood to forgive her. I pondered more deeply and determined she was not a friend but someone I had only thought was a friend. I didn't need to forgive her, I only needed to forgive myself for making a bad judgement. I pondered a bit more and decided I could do that. I can forgive myself for making a mistake because I'm not perfect. I wouldn't want to be perfect because all the wonderful people who truly are my friends couldn't measure up to me, so then they wouldn't love me any longer. I wondered if I had pondered enough to call it thinking. I didn't care. I decided to forget her, forgive myself, have a coffee refill, sit in solitude and absorb beauty. As I was doing all that, a Peacock pooped on my foot. Kind of put life into perspective didn't he?

Alleged residential burglary suspects captured in Monterey Park Monterey Park Police arrested two men for alleged residential burglary on Wednesday, April 3, shortly after a burglary was reported in the 1700 block of Orange Avenue. Officers investigated the burglary at approximately 10:40 a.m. A short time later, two subjects were stopped after an officer observed a traffic violation and the vehicle attempted to flee the area. The subjects were stopped and the subsequent investigation revealed that property taken in the burglary was located in the trunk of their vehicle. Investigators from the Monterey Park Police Department and the West San Gabriel Valley

Anti-Crime Task Force served search warrants at two locations and located additional property that is believed to be stolen. Property items recovered were portable gaming devices, jewelry, watches, a handgun and small electronics. There have been numerous residential burglaries in the Monterey Park area during the past several months. Jose Luis Alcala, 23, of Los Angeles, and Jonathan Estuardo Casasola-Cervantes, 20, of Montebello, were booked for felony residential burglary at the Monterey Park Police Department on Wednesday afternoon. They are due for arraignment at Alhambra Superior Court on April 5, 2013.

to get in his car so they could discuss the job and what it entailed as he drove to his meeting. The suspect drove the victim to an apartment building in Glendale and told her she needed to undergo a physical examination that he would perform.

Arcadia Cub Scout PACK 111 Tiger Cubs visit Beacon Media

During a field trip last week, Arcadia Cub Scouts pack 111 visited the offices of Arcadia Weekly and Beacon Media in Monrovia to learn all about community newspapers. During the tour, the cub scouts watched Beacon’s Graphics Guru, Fernando Lara design a page of the newspaper with their photo prominently displayed. The boys learned how advertising, marketing and news all come together to form a newspaper each and every Monday and Thursday for our community. -Photo by Terry Miller

Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez toughens child abuse law Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez (D-Los Angeles) was successful in pressing Assembly Bill 790 through the Assembly Public Safety Committee – an important first step in closing a dangerous loophole in the law that allows those entrusted with children’s safety to avoid filing reports of child abuse or neglect. Assemblyman Gomez opened with a statement that “Reporting abuse of a child should not be an option. Every incident of child abuse,

sexual abuse or neglect should be reported to the proper authorities, regardless of how many people suspect or saw the abuse.” “The Sandusky incident, where others failed to stand up and report provides a perfect example of how wrong this kind of optional reporting can go. Through the Sandusky case, we also saw that it is not those who failed to report that paid for the crime, it is the children who are sexually assaulted that pay.”

AB 790 is sponsored by California’s public safety community and is strongly supported by numerous child advocacy organizations. The reform measure will now ensure greater protections and assuredness of reporting by requiring any individual who is a mandated reporter who has knowledge of the abuse of the child to report to authorities. The measure, which enjoyed bipartisan support, will now go to the Assembly Appropriations committee.
