The overall crime rate at California State University, Stanislaus saw a decline in the past year, but the number of forcible sexual assaults was on the rise, according to the university's annual Campus Security Report.
Thursday morning the Stanislaus County District Attorney's Office was ready to defend their ability to fairly prosecute the case against Frank Carson and the seven defendants arrested with him in connection to the murder of 26-year-old Korey Kauffman. By Thursday afternoon the matter had been issued a continuance with very little progress having been made on the matter, but the defendants were finally arraigned on the charges against them.
Back in August the visiting judge overseeing the case against defense attorney Frank Carson and the other defendants charged with the death of Korey Kauffman issued an interim order allowing the defendants in custody to have one hand free of shackles during visits with their attorneys at the jail. It turns out the interim came to an end on Friday.
