Sal's Reflective E-Portfolio

The first big assignment in RWS 1302 was an interesting experience to say the least.  This genre analysis was as challenging as it was rewarding in a way. It really took upon all that was learnt in class and in discussions. If anything, I would say I enjoyed the experience this assignment brought with it. […]

During the process of writing this second major assignment, a literature review, I found myself looking for a great variety of well-established sources. It was in my search for good sources that I found myself looking at several papers coming from established research centric journals such as PubMed and ScienceDirect. My sources however, also looked […]

Legal proceedings continued Thursday in Solano County Superior Court for several defendants accused of felonies: Camden Lo A Solano County Superior Court judge rescheduled legal proceedings in the coming months for a Fairfield man and former Napa restaurateur accused of fatally stabbing his ex-wife last year in Fairfield. Camden Lo, charged with killing Wen-Ying Lo on Feb. 10, 2017, returned to Judge E. Bradley Nelson’s courtroom in Fairfield for a readiness conference but it was postponed until 8:30 a.m. Feb. 25. As previously scheduled, Lo’s trial management conference will be 8:30 a.m. March 8, and his jury trial will be 9 a.m. March 12. Lo, who speaks Cantonese and requires interpreters, is represented by San Francisco attorney Geoffrey Rotwein. In prior proceedings, Deputy District Attorney Kevin Cunnane has led the prosecution. Lo is accused of using a kitchen knife to stab his 48-year-old wife several times during an attack in the garage of the Burgundy Way home they once shared, a killing that occurred just hours after they appeared in front of a judge in Solano County Family Court about a divorce settlement. Court records revealed Lo had filed for divorce from his wife in May 2015. He was arrested a few hours after the attack and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of murder. Lo, who is in his early 50s, later pleaded not guilty to the charge, but, if convicted, he faces a possible state prison sentence of 25 years to life. During a preliminary hearing in early July, son Stanley Lo, 19 at the time, told the court that his father, standing in the driveway of his home, told him that he had killed his mother. Later they drove to his father’s Napa restaurant, the Mandarin Palace, on Trancas Street, where his father spoke with some unidentified people inside, the younger Lo said, adding that his father’s demeanor was calm as the elder Lo made two additional phone calls outside the restaurant. Police officers came to the Mandarin Palace about 20 minutes after the Los arrived, Stanley Lo said during the July 3 hearing. He added that his mother was, in his opinion, a violent person but his father was not, recounting the time when his mother struck him with her open hand when they lived together in Los Angeles, and another time, struck him with a sword of some kind, bruising him. Stanley Lo said his father, who remains in Solano County Jail, never said anything about why he stabbed and killed his mother. Victor A. Estrada A 28-year-old Fairfield man charged with fatally stabbing his father last spring in Suisun City faces a preliminary hearing on the murder charge next month. Victor Alfonso Estrada appeared for a readiness conference in Judge William J. Pendergast’s courtroom. As it has been from some weeks, the preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Jan. 22. Estrada is being defended by Deputy Public Defender Nick Filloy. Suisun City police believe Estrada killed his father, Alfonso Rodarte, 48, on the morning of March 24, shortly before police received a 911 call reporting a stabbing outside a residence in the 500 block of Line Street. “Based on the preliminary investigation, it appears the incident took place in front of the residence,” the police department wrote on its Facebook page. Additional information indicates Estrada was believed to be estranged from his father at the time of the stabbing. He was arraigned on the charges March 27 and remains in Solano County Jail. Derrick K. Dogan Jr. Alfie Broussard Two men charged with the shooting death of a Suisun City man 13 months ago will be back in Department 17 for rescheduled legal proceedings in the coming months. Derrick K. Dogan Jr. of Fairfield and Alfie Broussard of Elk Grove, both 36, were in court for a readiness conference, but the judge re-set the proceeding for 8:30 a.m. Feb. 28. As previously scheduled, they face a preliminary hearing, with the calling of witnesses and presentation of evidence, at 1:30 p.m. March 4. The men were arrested June 19 for the Nov. 3, 2017, murder and robbery of Armani Harper-Reed, 21. They were booked into Solano County Jail without bail. Because the killing was committed during a robbery, the charges carry special circumstances. Police investigators believe Harper-Reed was fatally shot around 9:35 p.m. in the parking lot of the Popeyes fast food restaurant, in the 2100 block of Anderson Drive in Suisun City. Deputy Public Defender Sean Swartz, of the Alternate Public Defender Office, represents Dogan, and Eileen Burke, a defense attorney from San Anselmo, represents Broussard. Deputy District Attorney Melainee Collins leads the prosecution.
