Dog Bite Laws In California

Dog Bite Laws In California

Nobody likes to get hurt, especially when someone else could have and should have taken measures to prevent the incident from happening. One kind of such incident is dog bites. There is not a single person alive who would want to get bitten by a dog.

The state of California has strict liability laws when it comes to dog bites. In most instances, the dog owner is liable if their dog bites someone. This means that the person who was bit has the right to seek legal compensation from the animal’s owner.

Some states limit when a dog owner is liable for their dog biting someone. For instance, some states only hold the owner liable if the dog has proven to be violent or vicious in the past. However, that is not the case in the state of California.

Regardless of whether or not the dog has bitten someone in the past, the owner is still liable for anyone their dog injures by biting.

The only time a person is not liable for their dog biting someone is if the person who was bit was trespassing on the owner’s private property.

Due to this fact, it is important for dog owners to keep their pets safe in their home or yard. If the dog gets out and bites someone, that person has the legal right to seek legal compensation from the dog’s owner.

If You File A False Report, You Will Go To Jail

It is a crime to falsely report a crime.

That is, you can and will get in trouble with the law if you report a crime but know that it really is not a crime. This is exactly what happened to a Los Angeles woman who, just a few weeks ago, was charged for her false report. Now she will have to pay her consequences by spending 2 months in jail.

26-year-old Charline Gatson filed a report with the police, reporting that an acquaintance approached her in her car and pulled out a gun. The acquaintance let Gatson go, but took her car. Gatson’s teenage son was still in the car and the acquaintance drove off. The vehicle was found later in San Bernardino, CA.

After investigators completed their work, they determined that Gatson’s carjacking and kidnapping report was false. In fact, Gatson had lent her vehicle to the acquaintance, and the acquaintance refused to return it. The stepson was not involved with the incident.

Because of Gatson’s false report, which effectively wasted resources, time, and money from police officers and investigators, Gatson was charged and ordered to spend 2 months in jail. In addition, she will be on probation for 36 months, and will pay a fine of $220.

Consequences for filing false reports are taken seriously because it takes officers away when they should be devoted to focusing on real, serious crimes.

All in all, filing a false report is irresponsible and reckless. It is, however, a different story when the person filing a report genuinely believes it to be true crime, but it is later determined that they are just mistaken. An example of that would be if someone witnessed a person whom they have never seen before, entering their neighbor’s apartment. Believing it to be an intruder, they alert the police. After investigating, the police learn that the neighbor had given this “intruder” their key because they are staying with them; this is an out-of-town friend, which is why the person had never seen them before.
