Scotts Valley HS Students Create Drive-Thru Haunted House as a “Safe Haunt” 10-22-20 15:15 DC

Every year Scotts Valley High School students create a haunted house that is open to the public – children especially -- with all of the proceeds going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

KION reports that this year it looked like the haunted house would have to be cancelled, but a group of about 100 students worked all summer to create a COVID-19 safe haunted house.

The students created a drive-thru haunted house that opens tonight. Tickets are $13-$22 per car-load of Halloween celebrants.

The Scotts Valley Haunted House opens tonight and is open this weekend and next weekend. You can purchase tickets online here.

Monterey Co Man Sentenced to 22 years for Rape 10-22-20 14:57 DC

A Monterey County man has been sentenced to 22 years and 8 months in prison for the forcible rape and sodomy of a family friend, an intellectually disabled woman.

Last April, the victim’s caregiver overheard her on the phone promising the man, 61-year-old Robert Cabral Salazar, that she would keep their secret, so the caregiver called the woman's aunt.

During September, Salazar pleaded guilty to forcible rape, forcible sodomy and dissuasion of a victim. He also had a previous strike conviction from 1987 for forcible rape in Stanislaus County.

In addition to prison time, Salazar is required to register as a sex offender for life and have no contact with the woman.
