    Today, Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 199, which requires all airsoft guns to have brightly colored or transparent markings. The bill will allow officers to more easily identify airsoft guns as imitation firearms instead of real guns in an effort to prevent officer-involved shootings based on a perceived safety threat. Following the October 22, 2013, shooting of Andy Lopez, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors prioritized gun and replica weapon regulation in its annual Legislative Platform.

    District Attorney Jill Ravitch announced today that Norberto Ramirez Perez, 36 of Santa Rosa, was sentenced today by the Honorable Julie Conger to five years in State Prison. On July 3, 2014, Perez was convicted, following a jury trial, of driving while under the influence of alcohol and causing injury as well as driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% per more and causing injury. Due to the seriousness of the injuries caused by Perez, those charges were treated as felony offenses. The jury also found true that Perez’s blood alcohol level was greater than 0.15%, and that Perez personally inflicted great bodily injury on his passenger. Perez was also convicted of a third charge related to driving without a license.
