Global entry is a program of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection service (“CBP”). It allows certain travelers to receive expedited clearance once they arrive into certain U.S. airports. A DUI arrest and a DUI conviction show up on a person’s criminal record. Once personnel from CBP view this information on a person’s record, they may use it as grounds to disqualify a person from the global entry program. This may even be the case if a person has a DUI conviction expunged, or dismissed.
Assembly Bill 1968 was signed into law by Gov. Brown in September 2018. The bill establishes a lifetime ban on gun ownership for those persons who are: involuntarily admitted to a facility for a mental health disorder more than once in a year; and, are considered a danger to themselves or others. Please note, though, that persons subject to this ban can petition the court every five years to have the ownership ban reversed. AB 1968 marks a change in California law. Prior to the bill, persons involuntarily committed to a mental health facility, and deemed a danger to themselves or others, could potentially own a gun after five years from the date of release from the facility.

The statute of limitations (“SOL”) refers to the time period within which a prosecutor in California must file criminal charges. If charges get filed after the statute of limitations period expires, then depending on the crime, a person cannot be lawfully arrested or charged for that offense. The SOL time-clock typically begins to run when an offense is discovered. Crimes in California have different statute of limitation periods. The SOL for an offense generally changes with the severity of the crime. For example: California misdemeanors typically have a statute of limitations of one year; and, California felonies (more severe offenses) generally have a SOL of three years. Some criminal offenses though, like crimes punishable by death, are not subject to limitation periods. People accused, or guilty of these crimes, can be charged or arrested at any time. One example of these offenses is a crime that is punishable by death (i.e., murder).
