There are many differences to a misdemeanor sexual offense and a felony sexual offense. The following infographic explains the differences between the two!
Back in 1984, a scientist at Clemson University named
John W. Huffman began studying the interaction between drugs and brain receptors. He and his colleagues created 460 synthetic cannabinoid compounds that resemble THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
Why? The answer was harmless enough. The brain receptors play a role in regulating pain and inflammation in the body, and as Huffman and his team tested their cannabinoid compounds on lab animals, the results were promising—some of their compounds succeeded in reducing pain, inflammation, and certain skin cancers. In fact, one of his compounds, JWH-133 (named after Huffman), shrank brain tumors and regressed non-melanoma skin cancers in mice—a very exciting discovery for Huffman.
Then things started to go south, as Huffman had feared. He published his positive findings, but the chemical formulas, some very easy to reproduce with common substances, fell into the hands of the wrong people and the fake marijuana craze had begun.
Come out and celebrate the Mexican culture and influence that abounds in our beautiful corner of the world.
Starting Friday, Sept. 19, and running through the whole weekend, you can find events celebrating the Mexican folk music known as Mariachi. This form of music dates back as far as the 16th century, before the Spanish conquest of Mexico, when the indigenous music was played with rattles, drums, flutes, and conch-shell horns as part of religious celebrations.
In February, a pilot was convicted of inappropriately groping a 14-year-old that was travelling alone, according to Huffington Post.
After a three-day trial, Pilot Michael Pascal was found guilty of two counts of sexual abuse. He was charged in a U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City, where he resides.
On a flight to Detroit to Salt Lake City, Pascal was a passenger that sat next to a 14-year-old girl. When the young girl woke up from a nap, Pascal’s hand was groping her buttocks.
The girl immediately elbowed Pascal and asked him what he was doing. The arm rest that she put between them earlier was pulled up when she awoke.
According to the documents, he became flustered when she called him out, saying that he was asleep. He also stated that put the arm rest up because he was crammed in the middle seat.
While Pascal went to the restroom, the young girl told a flight attendant and switched seats.
When we think of summertime at Greenberg & Greenberg, we can’t help but think of family, friends, the California sun, and barbecued food. The Smokey Canyon BBQ has all of those things and more.
Located less than ten minutes away from our Riverside office, Smokey Canyon BBQ is a family-owned restaurant that provides homemade-style barbecue and a welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy.
Pam and Dan Nusser only dreamed about owning a restaurant before opening Smokey Canyon in 2007. The Nusser’s have family roots in Missouri where barbecue is a way of life; they use recipes passed down from generations in their menu.
The country is taking a stand on a recent sentence, where a judge sentenced a former teacher to thirty days in prison after being charged with sexual intercourse without consent, or statutory rape, of one of his students.
Last summer, Montana teacher Stacey Dean Rambold was convicted of raping a fourteen-year-old student. Cherice Morales committed suicide before herseventeenth birthday, while the trial was still pending.
There was a public outcry against District Judge G. Todd Baugh, whose decision seemed improper.
Riverside’s Fourth of July Celebration will take place this Friday on Independence Day. The city will continue the patriotic tradition of having Independence Day events during the day and fireworks at night.

There will be live music and a “Little Miss Firecracker” Pageant for ages 5-10.
Child pornography charges are extremely serious. The maximum sentence for possession or distribution of child pornography is five years in prison, and the accused also faces thousands of dollars in fines.
Child pornography laws typically target sexual predators who prey on children. However, with the way the laws are written, even consenting teens can be charged with child pornography-related charges for “sexting.”
As a result, a youthful mistake can ruin a teen’s life. A conviction for this type of charge often requires sex offender registration, which can affect where a person can live and work.
