As a Ventura County public defender, Liana Johnsson has handled many life-changing cases, but her biggest public crusade these days has been going topless. For months, Johnsson has been fighting to allow topless women at California beaches and parks, and now the issue has made its way to the Capitol. A group of lawyers, at Johnsson's request, has asked the Legislature to make topless sunbathing legal, saying the ban is the last criminal sanction that treats women differently than men.

A Huntington Beach man already accused of six counts of indecent exposure was linked by DNA to the rapes of two women earlier this year, and authorities sought Wednesday to determine if there are other victims. Calvin Cunningham, 24, was linked to the additional crimes after lab tests were completed, Costa Mesa Police Lt. Ron Smith said. "We're guessing there are more victims," Smith said.
