SACRAMENTO - A jury found Assemblyman Roger Hernandez (D-West Covina) not guilty of drunk driving Monday, five months after police arrested him for what they described as erratic driving of a state car in Concord.

He said a decision about whether to refile the second charge will be made by Sept. 17. Hernandez issued a statement saying he looks forward to getting back to work.

Police said Friday that detectives have no reason to believe that a teenage couple who were killed in north Long Beach this week had any connections to gangs. Sweethearts Jessica Cotto, 15, and Roger Hernandez, 17, were killed by a single bullet Tuesday evening. The bullet tore through Hernandez's back and pierced Cotto's chest, according to neighbors and family. Authorities said the couple were either hugging or that Hernandez was trying to shield his girlfriend when the killer shot them.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office will not file charges against a West Covina councilman who allegedly failed to report a sweetheart deal from a car dealer. The investigation report said Councilman Roger Hernandez probably received a discount on a Chevrolet Tahoe sport utility vehicle from Clippinger Chevrolet in October 2003. But the report said Hernandez was unaware that his discount was different than what any member of the public would have received.

SACRAMENTO -- The state Assembly passed and sent the Senate a bill aimed at protecting immigrant workers, who complain about pay and working conditions. The measure, AB 263 by Assemblyman Roger Hernandez, passed on a 52-22 vote on Thursday. 'Better burger' chains beef up Hernandez said the legislation is needed to prevent bosses from threatening or actually calling federal agents after a worker, who entered the country illegally, has filed a complaint. "Those that are greatly affected come from the most vulnerable sectors, such as in agriculture, construction, manufacturing and service industries," he said.

SACRAMENTO -- A measure to make housekeepers, private healthcare aides and other domestic workers eligible for overtime pay cleared the Legislature on Thursday. The measure, known as the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, won final approval in the Assembly on a 48-25 vote. It now heads to the Gov. Jerry Brown's desk. Brown vetoed a similar bill by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) last year. This year's version, also by Ammiano, would make domestic workers eligible for overtime if they work more than nine hours a day or 45 hours a week.

Flores, an attorney who has represented Hernandez, as it looks at $3,900 provided by Flores' law firm to Hernandez's campaign in 2009.
