Amber Willard LOS ANGELES -- Arguments are scheduled to continue today in a defense attorney's request to keep a jury from hearing the confession of a Glendale woman accused in a murder-for-hire plot. The attorney for Rosa Maldonado, who allegedly hired a man to kill the wife of her lover, argued Wednesday morning that her confession was coerced. Maldonado and Roberto Felix were arrested in November 1999, days after the shooting of Olga Olguin. Maldonado allegedly hired Felix to shoot Olguin, who was hit once in the back of the head as she walked her sons to school.

Amber Willard PASADENA -- Jurors heard a cassette tape Monday on which a doctor apparently admitted to killing a colleague after she threatened to tell his wife she was pregnant with his child. "She said, 'If you ruin me, I'm going to ruin you,' " Kevin Paul Anderson told L.A. County Sheriff's Departmentofficials hours after he was arrested on Nov. 11, 1999. Anderson said he "panicked" when fellow pediatrician Deepti Gupta threatened his daughter, and choked Gupta, first with his hands, then with his tie. "When she said that, I just lost it. I was so angry.

It’s been a good year or so since I have written a column pertaining to someone who was arrested and then tried to invoke his 5th Amendment right to remain silent. I’m sure you are all familiar with this from television, commonly known as one’s Miranda rights. I always advise my clients that if they are ever arrested, there is a reason they are given this right to remain silent, and they should exercise this right. In columns in which I have addressed this issue in the past, the story generally involves someone trying to invoke his or her 5th Amendment right to remain silent, and the question becomes whether the invocation of the right was clear enough to ward off further police questioning or whether some ambiguity in the request for 5th Amendment protection allowed the police officers to keep on questioning the individual.

So your 17-year-old daughter is arrested with a van full of marijuana in her car. She is questioned by police, and she confesses to being on her way to a party. She is convicted and sentenced to 18 months' confinement. Do the confession and the conviction stand? According to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal, the answer is no. The court recently ruled that before a federal agent can begin the interrogation of a minor, the minor's parents must be informed that they have the right to counsel their child.

In July the Court of Appeal in the greater San Francisco area reversed a conviction that, in my opinion, was an easy call. This is the story of a bully and his victim, the death of the bully and what is appropriate justice. It is also the story of the Santa Cruz County Prosecutor's Office, which has now had three convictions reversed since April. Each case had one thing in common; the Deputy District Attorney trying the case argued that certain jury instructions should not be given, the judge bought it and the Appellate Court found that the defendant had not gotten a fair trial.

Next to my love of Middle Eastern, Latin and Asian dishes sits an unexpected and grossly underrated culinary cuisine I adore: British food. On the surface, it might seem like our friends across the pond offer only fish and chips and combinations like bangers and mash (sausage and mashed potato), but there's more to British cuisine than meets the eye. That's especially true during the winter holidays, when the days are completely saturated with mince pies, glasses of mulled wine and more dips and sauces than one knows what to do with.

One of my students revealed a recent adornment in the form of a small tattoo on the back of her neck. It was a scorpion to match her astrological sign and was hidden by her hair. The young lady is 18 and doesn’t need her parents’ permission, but I asked anyway, “Do they know about this?” “No way — I’ll tell them when I’m older, much older.” Well, this little exchange put me in mind of a deception that I pulled off when I was just about her age, and then it struck me that I never did come clean with the people I deceived, my parents.
