A man whose body was found hanging from a downtown Sacramento building Monday, nine stories up, appears to be a tagger who was attempting the vandalize the property, authorities say. The man had used rope to tie himself in a seated position like a rappeller, authorities said. The rope was tied off with a window washing anchor, and fire officials believe that that anchor could have held his weight. But they don't think he was a window washer. The Sacramento Bee reported that the man had two pieces of rope looped around his body in a style used by rock climbers.

Actresses Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner testified in Sacramento on Tuesday in support of a bill aimed at protecting the children of celebrities and public officials from paparazzi. Senate Bill 606, proposed by Sen. Kevin DeLeon (D-Los Angeles), would change the legal definition of harassment to include any conduct that "alarms, annoys torments or terrorizes" a child while photographing or recording that child without express parental consent. The legislation specifically mentions photography that involves "following the child's activities or lying in wait" and targeting a child because of a parent's line of work.  The actresses said they appeared before the legislative committee as mothers concerned for the safety of their children, who aren't celebrities.

More than a year after a 13-year-old girl was found brutally beaten and stabbed to death in a Sacramento park, authorities said they have arrested a man in connection to her death. Sacramento County sheriff's detectives announced Thursday that DNA evidence led them to arrest Ryan Douglas Roberts, 23, on suspicion of killing Jessica Funk-Haslam, who was found dead March 6, 2012, from a stab wound, blunt-force trauma and asphyxia. Authorities said he wasn't even on their radar until DNA collected at the scene matched his. “We knew pretty early on we had a foreign DNA sample there and it was our obligation, obviously, to figure out who it belonged to,” said Det. Tony Turnbull.

Comedian Katt Williams avoided jail Thursday when he was sentenced to 90 days of community service after pleading no contest to misdemeanor reckless evasion of an officer in Sacramento. The original sentence was 180 days in county jail, according to the Sacramento Bee , but the judge converted it to the community service stretch with the other 90 days stayed if he does the work and stays out of trouble. The charge was originally a felony vehicle code violation. PHOTOS: Celebrity mug shots The chase that sparked the charge occurred last November, during a rough patch for the comic as he played dates on the West Coast and bumped up against the law repeatedly along the way. Driving a three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder motorcycle, Williams led police on a chase through sidewalks and walkways in downtown Sacramento after they approached him on a disturbing-the-peace complaint, Fox40 News reported at the time.
