Some recent crimes in Los Angeles have shown how important it is to have a lawyer who understands the courts, the prosecutors and jury trials. People from all walks of life can be arrested for, charged with or investigated for serious crimes, and without top notch legal representation it can create lifelong problems. In El Monte, the El Monte Police Department is looking for a man who is accused of raping a college student in the back of a convenience store. Authorities said a female student was working as a cashier at the store when a man blocked the exit as she prepared to close. He dragged the woman to the back of the store and raped her according to police news reports. Police believe the perpetrator is an 18-year-old who is a gang member with a tattoo on his right arm of his gang. They are seeking assistance from the community in looking for the alleged guilty party. In another sex crime involving a college student, a 26-yea- old man was arrested on suspicion of attempted kidnapping and rape at Grossmont College in El Cajon, near San Diego. The San Diego Sheriff's Department arrested Anthony Washington for attempting to attack a female student at 11 AM, he was booked in county jail. The attacker held a knife to the victim's throat according to reports as she got into her car. Another student saw the attacked and honked his horn causing the attacker to flee the scene. The suspect was arrested after a thorough search of the campus. He confessed he was going to rape the student during interrogation. In a surprising case of a judge committing a crime, Hon. Craig Richman allegedly committed battery for pushing and injuring a woman who was walking her dogs. The event allegedly occurred on July 18 when the judge saw a woman place a plastic bag of animal waste on the curb next to the street by his house. He is accused of pushing the woman from behind and knocking her to the ground causing the woman to strike her face on the sidewalk. She suffered cuts and scrapes to her face and shoulder. The judge then allegedly left the scene. Richman, who is also a former prosecutor, was charged with a misdemeanor count of battery. The judge at first accused the woman of fabricating the entire story, but also claims that she was both the aggressor and stalked him when he tried to leave, which would at least ad some validity to her story.
