Driver faces charges after fatal accident

A recent accident on a Riverside freeway left two people dead and one person seriously injured. All of the victims were in one car, and driver of the other car is now facing allegations that he was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Additional criminal charges could be filed against the man in connection with this accident.

Helping Californians get a fresh financial start

Like other states, California's laws balance the principle that people should pay back what they owe against the principle that sometimes people simply run into financial hardships and shouldn't be expected to starve or be homeless simply because they owe money they cannot pay.
