San Joaquin sheriff doesn't extradite some of its wanted violent felons

Wanted felons are escaping justice simply by crossing state lines, a nine month investigation with our partners at USA Today revealed.


It's all because the law enforcement agencies who issued warrants for their arrests aren't willing to extradite them from other states, according to the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database of fugitives.

Stockton courthouse construction unofficially underway

Stockton courthouse construction unofficially underway

STOCKTON - Streets are torn up and traffic has been interrupted in downtown Stockton for what court officials call "pre" construction of a new courthouse.

The courthouse is being built in what used to be Hunter Square, where parking existed for the current courthouse. The 13-story building will be the tallest in San Joaquin County when it opens in the fall of 2016.

The $200 million building is financed through a state courthouse construction fund. Fees and fines have been raised for years to pay for projects like the one in Stockton.

Weber Avenue in that part of Stockton has been partially blocked for work done by PG&E.

Millions for old school buses

STOCKTON – Millions of dollars are available to replace gas-guzzling, air-polluting school buses.

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control Districthas $3 million in grant money to help cover 50 percent of the cost of a newer, cleaner, and more efficient bus.

Any school within the eight-county Valley Air District region can qualify for a grant. The counties include San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare and part of Kern.

"The San Joaquin Valley is home to oldest school bus fleet in the state," Incentive Program Manager Todd DeYoung said. "The buses we're looking to replace are from the mid- to late-80s."
