California: Moreno Valley School board member who faces manslaughter, pimping and rape charges will not face recall

Moreno Valley school board member Mike Rios, who has been charged with attempted voluntary manslaughter, rape, pimping, pandering charges, is not going to face a recall vote on November 6. Despite the charges, the recall group failed miserably in collecting signatures. They needed 9,266 valid signatures to qualify. One of the members said they collected 500.

Rios is set for trial on Jan. 14.

Here's the quick write up of the the charges:
In April, Rios was charged with pimping, pandering and rape. Prosecutors allege he persuaded or encouraged four women and two underage girls to work for him as prostitutes. Rios also faces attempted voluntary manslaughter charges. He is accused of shooting at two people who he said followed him home after a confrontation at a Moreno Valley bar.
