    In Roberson's assault and battery case two penal codes were cited: California State Sen. Joel Anderson (R-El Cajon) was accused last week by Stephanie Roberson, a female lobbyist for the California Nurses Association, a labor union, of threatening to “# slap” her and harassing her at a Capitol-area bar last week, several news outlets reported this week. Anderson is now facing a legislative investigation by the Senate Rules Committee. I spoke with Sen. Anderson who tells the story quite differently. Anderson also said the Los Angeles Times did not speak with him.

    EL CAJON, Calif. — US authorities tried twice to deport the unarmed black man fatally shot by police in El Cajon, California, but his native Uganda refused to take him. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday in a statement to the Associated Press that Alfred Olango stopped reporting to officers in February 2015. Spokeswoman Virginia Kice didn’t know if officers tried to find him after that. Olango arrived as a refugee in 1991 and was ordered deported in 2002 after being convicted on drug charges. He was released under a US Supreme Court ruling barring detention of foreign nationals...

    El Cajon, California (CNN)Activists dismayed by the police killing of an unarmed, possibly mentally ill black man in El Cajon, California, demanded Wednesday that authorities release video of the shooting. They also want a federal probe into the man's death. Police have not released the man's name. As of Wednesday afternoon, police had released little information about the incident, aside from a still photograph showing the African-American man, in what authorities describe as a "shooting stance," facing off with two officers in a parking lot.

    EL CAJON, Calif. - A female El Cajon police officer has sued her department on allegations she was passed over for a promotion because she cooperated with an investigation into a former sergeant accused of sending lewd pictures to her and several other women in the agency. The lawsuit, filed Monday in San Diego Superior Court, alleges ECPD demonstrated sexual discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination and disability discrimination against the officer, identified in the documents as Christine Greer. In the lawsuit, Greer claims that former Sgt. Richard Gonsalves texted her a nude photo of his genitals. Last month, Team10 learned that...

    In October, Teri James says her supervisor at San Diego Christian College called her to her office and got straight to the point: Was James pregnant? James, 29, of El Cajon, Calif., was indeed pregnant – and she was also unmarried, a violation of school rules, according to the lawsuit she filed in San Diego County superior court. She says she was fired because, as the termination letter included in the suit stated: “Teri engaged in activity outside the scope of the Handbook and Community Covenant that does not build up the college’s mission.”

  • Ex-Army translator acquitted of working as Iraqi agent

    A jury on Friday acquitted a former military translator of secretly working as an Iraqi agent in the US but convicted him of making false statements when he sought a security clearance. The split verdict offered some relief to Issam "Sam" Hamama, who claimed he was only passing along basic information about Iraqis in the US when he reached out to Iraqi officials in the 1990s during the regime of Saddam Hussein. "We've been vindicated. They were accusing him of voluntarily working as a spy," defense lawyer Haytham Faraj said. Hamama, 60, of El Cajon, California, was found not guilty...

    EL CAJON – The six-month grace period on El Cajon's strict new smoking law ends today, but it's hard to tell what has changed. No signs alert people that smoking is banned in virtually all public places. Visitors may not even know the law – the strictest in the county – exists. That was the case with Poway resident Kimberly Frederico, 38, who was smoking a cigarette outside the El Cajon courthouse yesterday while on a break from jury duty. “I think it's a little too extreme,” Frederico said. Smoking is prohibited in many places across the county, but El...

    EL CAJON – It was more than 60 years ago, but Bill L. Disbrow remembers well the pride he felt when he was promoted to bomber pilot and entrusted with some of the most dangerous missions of World War II. “I was a co-pilot to start, but then I moaned so much they made me a pilot,” said Disbrow, 91, a Wildomar resident. He served in the 15th Air Force, and his mission was to blow up Romanian oil refineries that supplied the Germans. He piloted a B-24 Liberator bomber, he said. Disbrow was among thousands of veterans who attended...
