You don't need to actually tag a building to be charged with a graffiti-related crime in Los Angeles. If you just intend to commit an act of vandalism, mere possession of tools or other items that you were going to use in the act is enough to get you charged with a crime.

As “sexting” between teenagers has become a common activity, Nevada is one of many states that have passed laws specifically addressing the issue, making teenage sexting in Las Vegas and throughout the state a crime.

Unfortunately the answer is yes. Battery on a peace officer under California law, Penal Code 243(b) or 243(c) PC, is a crime even if the officer isn't injured.

If your passions get the best of you and an intimate partner while out and about and you have sex in public, you could be charged and convicted for violations of California law.

If you've been convicted of multiple criminal offenses, you could be labeled a “habitual criminal”. That dubious designation can result in more severe punishment if and when you are sentenced for another crime.

If you are convicted of aiding and abetting a crime under Penal Code 31 PC, you will receive the same punishment as someone who actually committed that crime.
