  1. Gas Chamber.....only way to deal with garbage like this!!

  2. Can you explain what an intervention hearing is? Does this have to do with possibly moving this out of criminal court into a drug diversion program?

    1. That is a good question and a good guess. In Humboldt, it has its own definition, and even Visiting Judges from other parts of California are surprised by it.

      Between arraignment where the person is informed of the alleged charges against them and enter their plea and the preliminary hearing, which is held to see if there is enough probable cause to proceed to a jury trial, Humboldt has an informal closed courtroom hearing where the lawyers and Judge meet to see if the case can be "resolved."

      That is the shortest explaination I can give online.

      So anything can happen at "intervention". If there is a change, the Judge announces it later in a courtroom. In this case, Judge Hinrichs said the intervention may not be on record.
