Crime still doesn't pay in California. The state's "Son of Sam" law, which prevents convicted felons from making money from book and movie deals about the crimes they commit, survived its first court challenge Thursday. The 2nd District of the state Court of Appeal upheld a lower court injunction blocking Columbia Pictures from paying Barry Keenan for the rights to the story of how he masterminded the 1963 kidnapping of Frank Sinatra Jr. The ruling, written by Justice Miriam A.

A California appeals court has overturned embezzlement, theft and conspiracy convictions against Ingrid Ely, the wife of former Ventura Community College District trustee James T. (Tom) Ely. But the court upheld all convictions against Ely himself. Tom Ely, 56, and Ingrid Ely, 48, were convicted in June, 1991, of padding their expense accounts and charging bogus travel expenses to bilk the district out of more than $15,000.

An appellate court has reinstated a jury's death sentence against a parolee who had been free from prison just one month when he abducted a Santa Clarita man at gunpoint, robbed him, then shot him execution-style in 1992. The decision, handed down late Friday by the state 2nd District Court of Appeal, overturns an April 1994 decision by Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Leon Kaplan throwing out a jury's verdict that Scott Forrest Collins be executed for the kidnapping, robbery and murder of Fred D.

Defense lawyers argued Wednesday that a judge, not prosecutors, should decide whether three teens accused in last year's killing of a Glendale high school senior are tried as adults. The lawyers asked the 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles to find that the teens had been improperly charged with murder because California law does not permit minors to be indicted by a grand jury.

A wife cannot be compelled to testify against her husband even if the couple have lived apart for 17 years, a state appellate court has ruled. The decision reverses a trial court judge's order that would have forced Susan Jurcoane to testify against her husband, Josif, at his preliminary hearing. He is charged with killing two people at an Antelope Valley cherry farm on July 4, 1984.

A state appellate court Friday dismissed a murder indictment against one of the juveniles charged in the killing of a Glendale high school senior last year and ordered preliminary hearings for the two other minors. Prosecutors can try to refile the charges against Karen Terteryan, but his attorney said he plans to fight any new charges as excessive prosecution of the case. Meanwhile, the other two defendants, Rafael Gevorgyan and Anait Msryan, will have preliminary hearings.

A state appeals court ruled Friday that Gov. Gray Davis does not have absolute power to overturn a parole recommendation made by the state Board of Prison Terms. The court held 2 to 1 that Davis exceeded his authority in rejecting the board's recommendation to release Robert Rosenkrantz, who has been imprisoned 15 years for second-degree murder. Davis' attorneys had contended that under Proposition 89, passed by California voters in 1988, the governor had veto power over board decisions.

The California Supreme Court on Friday agreed to decide the constitutionality of a novel state law that allows the prosecution of parents who willingly allow their children to become delinquents. The justices, granting a review of an appeal by Los Angeles officials, set aside a ruling last December by a state appellate court, which found that the 1988 parental responsibility law was impermissibly vague.
