This is what they posted about the charges... Amazing how they feel what they did was justified. Madera Sheriff dept, District Attorney's office and a federal judge disagrees with them. ... See MoreSee Less

Vern MooreHere is where I'm at. Bass Lake, elevation about 3400 ft. (clear to burn?) At Ridgeline we have Suburban gas service and fireplace with a wood burning stove w/blower unit. I'm sure the insert was installed after 1990. I just prefer to burn wood for the mid and upper level heat. Do I still need to register this thing?3 hours ago

Sue LangleyTranscription: "Madera, California - Fifteen people involved in the October 9, 2014 takeover of the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino in Coarsegold area of Madera County have been charged with multiple felonies. Madera County District Attorney Michael R Keitz announced. Fourteen defendants, David Lee Dixon, Timothy Tofaute, Tex McDonald, Shawn Fernandez, John Olivera, Tyrone Mark Twain Bishop, Vernon King, Benjamin James Rhodes, Jim Glasscock, Brian Lec Auchenbach, John David Cayanne, Ronald Jones, David Paul Anderson and Miguel Ramos are all charged with seven counts of Kidnapping and False Imprisonment, eight counts of Assault with a Firearm, one count of Assault with a Deadly Weapon, one count of Battery Inflicting Bodily Injury and five counts of Assault with a Stun Gun. Eric Domingo Flores Suniga is charged with five counts of Assault with a Stun Gun. Many of the defendants are also charged with various special allegations for possessing and using firearms during the alleged crimes. All of the charges against the defendants are felonies and punishable by imprisonment." _ It's a step forward, for sure, but I can see it will be a long process in the courts now. In essence, they skipped the arrest, jail and bail process. If you're charged with a felony or in this case a ton of felonies, do they come looking for you or send you a letter?3 hours ago   ·  1
