    OAKLAND — Two alleged Hayward gang members accepted plea deals with wildly different prison terms, just before they were set to go on trial for a 2013 double homicide that police say was motivated by “checking” the victims’ possible gang status. Eric Estrada, 31, and Dylan Redding, 28, have been in custody for nearly 10 years, facing charges of murdering Daniel Garcia-Sanchez, 21, and Carlos Estrada-Partida, 18, in August 2013. Last March, Estrada was formally sentenced to 11 years in state prison and Redding was sentenced to 29, after pleading no contest to two counts of manslaughter and assault, court records show. Both defendants blamed each other for the shooting when they were questioned by police, though authorities say Estrada’s DNA was found on the .357 Magnum revolver that killed both victims. According to investigators, Estrada and Redding were affiliated with a Northern California gang based in the Decoto area, and asked both victims if they were gang members by saying, “where you from?” When one of the victims sarcastically replied, “My mama,” Estrada allegedly opened fire, killing both victims....
    SAN MATEO COUNTY – A 35-year-old East Palo Alto man has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting two family members, police said. Earlier this month, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office opened an investigation into the sexual assault of a minor in an unincorporated part of the county, Lt.

    MARTINEZ – A 25-year-old Concord man will serve five years and eight months behind bars after being found guilty of four felonies and one misdemeanor hate crime late last year, prosecutors said. The case centered on comments Ross Farca made on the videogame platform Steam in 2019. Using the screen name “Adolf Hitler (((6 Million)))” – a reference to the estimated 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust – Farca said he wanted to kill Jews and police officers with a homemade assault rifle, according to the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office. Farca also cited two mass shootings in San Diego and Christchurch, New Zealand as inspiration. Authorities searched Farca’s home and found an assault weapon, 13 magazines, bullets, and books about Hitler and Nazism. In December 2021, Farca was convicted of four felonies – two counts of criminal threats against investigators, possession of an assault weapon and the unlawful manufacturing of an assault weapon – and one misdemeanor hate crime. Prosecutors said Farca’s sentencing was delayed three times due to mental health diversion hearings. He will serve one year...
    (CNN)Danijela Steinfeld says making the documentary "Hold Me Right" helped save her. Just a few years earlier she had been suicidal. Her goodbye letter was found by a friend who called the police just in time to intervene -- a deeply personal story she shares in the film. The 37-year-old actress and filmmaker​ ​fled her home country of Serbia in 2012 to come to the US after allegedly being sexually assaulted by a powerful and well-known man in the country. Serbian prosecutors declined to bring charges in her case. She told CNN she made the film to normalize conversations about sexual assault and abuse in the hope of stopping the cycle of shame and violence associated with it. Steinfeld didn't set out to share her own experience in the film. The project began as a way for her to connect survivors to empower them not to suffer in silence alone, like she had done. When she left Serbia, she says she had been at the height of her acting career and that her familiar face just vanished from magazines, movies...
    OAKLAND — After Richmond resident Michael Mayfield was stabbed to death at a Berkeley residence in February 2010, the prime suspect, Kevin Alvardo, spent 11 years evading capture before being arrested in Mexico. Now, just a year since his arrest, 34-year-old Alvarado is a free man once again: Alvarado had been charged with murdering Mayfield with an enhancement alleging use of a knife, but a judge dismissed all criminal charges against him at a preliminary hearing late last month. A court order from Alvarado’s March 24 preliminary hearing says Judge Scott Patton found the charges were “unsupported by the evidence and finds no sufficient cause to hold the defendant to answer.” Three days earlier, Alvarado’s attorney filed a brief arguing that the killing was justifiable self-defense. Mayfield, 40, was stabbed to death at around 7:40 p.m. on Feb. 11, 2010, at a home on the 2100 block of Curtis Street in Berkeley. Witnesses identified Alvarado as the stabber, and authorities alleged at the time he was a member of a west Berkeley subset of a Northern California street gang. Alvarado was...

    Nearly six years after a 5-year-old girl waiting for her school bus was sexually assaulted, St. Paul police said Friday they’ve made an arrest in the case. Police had DNA evidence that was collected at the time of the rape in the North End in 2016, but no match initially showed up in regular searches through a national database, which is updated as samples are collected and entered. In December, investigators received information from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension that there had been a match and there was suspect information, according to police. That DNA information and further investigation led police to a 19-year-old. He was 13 in 2016. Law enforcement agencies were looking for him for several months, said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman. POLICE SAY HE CONFESSED The St. Clair County, Ill., sheriff’s department, U.S. Marshals and FBI found the man in Cahokia Heights, Ill., which is near St. Louis, and arrested him Monday.
