On Wednesday, Oct. 20 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m, local attorney Keith J. Staten and former Sac State administrator William “Skip” Bishop are scheduled to host the “Know Your Rights!” event. The online event is sponsored by the Male Empowerment Collaborative and is sponsored by Sacramento State and the Student Academic Success And Educational Equity Programs.

The online event was created to inform and educate people of their constitutional rights to help them in situations with police and other forms of law enforcement. 

Staten specializes in complex criminal litigation, DUI litigation and administrative licensing issues. He is an expert in DUI matters, both from the criminal justice side and the DMV administrative side. He also is known for his successful verdicts in drug and sex cases.

While at Sac State, Bishop worked on the university’s annual affirmative action plan. He will now become the Title IX and gender equity officer at San Jose State.
