Yee Xiong, 24, in her home in Davis on Friday, July 22, 2016. Her battle was public and she never hid from it. “My name is Yee Xiong and I am here today to reclaim my worth and my story,” she said in Yolo County courthouse. To do so, Xiong would have to endure two trials, both of which ended in hung juries. Even though her case dated back four years, Lang Her, a fellow UC Davis student, was not arrested until April 2014. On July 19, Yolo Superior Court Judge Paul Richardson sentenced Her, 26, to nearly a year in jail. He’ll get five years of probation, register as a sex offender and be subject to sex offender counseling.

Hello, my name is Marcos Bretón, and I'm the news columnist with The Sacramento Bee. What’s a columnist supposed to do? I’m supposed to make you think, make you laugh, make you mad or make you see an issue in a different way. I also write a weekly baseball column during the baseball season. I am a native of Northern California and the son of Mexican immigrants. I’ve been at The Bee for more than 20 years, and I love Sacramento.
