McGeorge students make law – and history

McGeorge students make law – and history

Revenge porn victims can get offensive material taken off the Internet using a pseudonym. Child care centers can consider job applicants' arrest warrants in hiring decisions. Prisoners can seek a new trial if the scientific evidence that convicted them is later discredited. And police will get training to recognize signs of elder abuse.

Californians won these new rights and protections thanks to four bills developed by students at Pacific McGeorge School of Law and signed into law by Gov. Brown.  

"It is rewarding to have our students not only studying the law on the books in the nation's most important state capital, but also helping to put those laws on the books," said Francis J. Mootz III, dean and professor of law at McGeorge.

Pizza restaurant employer arrested for rape


An Oakdale pizzeria employer is facing an allegation he raped an employee.

Oakdale police Officer Aaron Beatty said the underage employee made a police report on Sept. 14, that Jura's Pizza employer Jura Aghassi sexually assaulted her. The attack allegedly took place during working hours at the pizzeria.

Between the police investigation and data on a recovered cellphone, there was sufficient evidence to arrest Aghassi on Monday, Oct. 20, for sexual assault under duress, distribution of child porn with the intent of arousing and/or initiating sexual activity with the recipient, and commission of sexual battery under restraint, according to Beatty.

Aghassi was taken into custody at his place of business in Turlock.
