The leader of a Redding-based methamphetamine distribution operation was sentenced Thursday in Sacramento federal court to 21 years in prison, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office said Friday. Rafael Pahua Martinez, 41, of Orland was sentenced to prison for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine, the spokeswoman said in a news release.
A 37-year-old Redding man was sentenced Friday to 15 years to life in prison after pleading guilty in January to second-degree murder in a 2016 head-on traffic wreck that killed an 81-year-old Shingletown woman. "I am truly sorry," said Matthew David Castaneda before he was sentenced. "I made a terrible mistake." Castaneda took a plea bargain that guaranteed a 15-year-to-life prison term. He also won't be allowed to drive for the rest of his life if released from prison.
It's been said that death and taxes are the only two things certain in life. You might want to add jury duty to that short list. That's because you can run but you can't hide from it. At least not for very long. That's especially true now as Shasta County Superior Court works to crack down on those who fail to show up for jury duty.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
