Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2009 3B LAW and ORDER Law and Order policy Information that appears in this column is compiled from the Plumas County Sheriff's Office' activity log, the county correctional center's booking log and California Highway Patrol press releases. The Sheriff's Blotter shows initial charges. In some instances the charges may change after the dispatch report. We do not report suspects' names in arrests for public intoxication or drur~ken driving unless accompanied by another serious charge, such as probation violation, a vehicle accident or another felony. The fact that someone has been arrested and charged with a crime does not constitute guilt. The case may never appear in court if the district attorney determines there is insufficient evidence to prosecute. The fact that someone was involved in an automobile collision does not constitute liability or fault. Minors are named as legal-age drivers at 16, unless they are charged with a crime in conjunction with an incident. The CHP determines whether inJuries are characterized as minor, moderate or fatal.
