Child Porn Case: Clovis Man Pleads Guilty

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) says a Clovis man has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.

According to the plea agreement, 44-year-old Aaron Gregory Guzman received more than 600 pictures and videos of child porn on his computer.

Some of the sexually explicit images depicted sadistic, masochistic and other violent behavior, the DOJ said.

Guzman is scheduled to be sentenced on April 30, 2012. He faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Familiar Face Takes Reins Of Clovis Fire Department

Familiar Face Takes Reins Of Clovis Fire Department

Clovis firefighters have a new leader, and he's no stranger to the department.

Lee Kraft has been with the Clovis Fire Department since 1981. Little did he know back then, he'd one day rise through the ranks to become Clovis' fire chief.

Unlike many firefighters today, Kraft never dreamed of rushing into burning buildings to save lives when he was a little boy.

"I was a drafting design major at Fresno State, and I was two months away from signing a contract with Hughes Aircraft down in El Segundo as a draftsperson," Kraft said.

Instead, he saw an ad for reserve firefighters and decided public service was his true calling.

"You think you're going down this path, you take a hard left, and it's an opportunity and you seize the moment," Kraft said.

Help! Type O-Negative Blood Needed Right Now

Do you have type O-negative blood? Your help is needed right away.

The Central California Blood Center says its supply of O-negative blood has dropped to a critical level -- just 14% of needed inventory.

"Recent storms have caused emergency room usage to climb," said Dean Eller, President and CEO of the Central California Blood Center. "Therefore, we are asking new and returning donors to take an hour and help save someone's life."

Even if you don't have O-negative blood, officials are asking anyone who can donate to please do so. O-negative is the universal blood type which can be given to all patients in emergency situations.

Blood donation takes less than one hour to complete. Donors must be in good general health, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 years old with written parental consent). Photo ID and Social Security number are required at donor registration.

Fresno Man Accused Of Killing Brother-In-Law

Fresno Man Accused Of Killing Brother-In-Law

A man was found shot to death in the middle of a Clovis street last year, and now police say they've caught the person suspected of killing him.

20-year-old Tyrone Parker, of Fresno, is sitting behind bars facing murder charges. Clovis Police believe he shot and killed his brother-in-law, 33-year-old Dewayne Young, on March 20, 2011.

Investigators say there was a family gathering at a home in the 3000 block of Ezie, when Young and his wife -- Parker's sister -- were involved in some sort of argument. They say witnesses saw Parker pull out a gun and shoot Young.

Clovis Police issued an arrest warrant for Parker. He was arrested by Salinas Police after trying to resolve a ticket issue.

Parker was later transferred to the Fresno County Jail where he is being held without bail.
