White man sentenced to 6 years in prison for repeated crimes throughout Portland
by KPTV (fox12 Oregon)



Jason James Johnson, 48, was sentenced Wednesday.

He pleaded guilty to charges of third-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office stated that as part of pretrial negotiations and the six-year prison sentence, the state agreed not to pursue additional charges.
Investigators said Johnson threatened a homeowner who refused to give him cans in November 2017; threatened a woman and her husband who refused to give him money in January 2018; Threatened two people after demanding cigarettes and beer at a business in September 2018; Attempted to force his way into a home after demanding $1,000 and erroneously claiming a person had damaged his bike in October 2018.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office communicated regularly with the victims about the pretrial negotiations.

They are all in full support and are satisfied with this case resolution, according to the DA’s office.

“Jason James Johnson had a considerable and disproportionate impact on our community,” said Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Kevin Demer, who prosecuted this case.

“His criminal history is extensive. Over the years, Mr. Johnson’s conduct has escalated from vandalizing TriMet property, to attacking community members, and tampering with witnesses. He has caused substantial fear and trauma in our community and continues to do so even after being provided resources.”

As part of his sentencing, Johnson will serve three years of post-prison supervision.

Horizon Elementary School father arrested after walking around with daughter over his shoulder

by Patricio G. Balona




A man was arrested on Wednesday after hoisting his daughter over his shoulder and becoming belligerent on Horizon Elementary School's campus after the girl refused to have lunch with her father, police said.

According to Port Orange police, Mark Wood, 38, who is in the middle of a custody battle, went to the school to have lunch with his two children.


His son voluntarily went with him but his daughter refused.

It was Wood's visitation day, police said.

Wood pulled his daughter out of line in the cafeteria, and the daughter caused a scene, police said.


It was then that the father grabbed the child by the wrist and put her on his shoulder, and walked toward the exit.

That's when a school guardian and school, officials stopped him, police said.

Wood was charged with disorderly conduct and transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail on $500 bail, police said.

He Caught The Vapors!
by Elisha Fieldstadt




A 22-year-old man who plowed his pickup truck into a troop of Girl Scouts picking up trash on the side of a Wisconsin road, killing three girls and one woman, was sentenced Wednesday to 54 years in prison.

Colten Treu pleaded no contest in December to four counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and guilty to one count of hit and run causing bodily harm. He had originally pleaded not guilty to all charges.

On Wednesday, he addressed the families of his victims.

"I screwed up bad. No matter what I say or do, you guys are never going to know how sorry I really am," Treu said, according to NBC affiliate WEAU.

"I can't give back what I have taken. I want to. Lord knows I want to."

A judge ordered that Treu's 54 years in prison be followed by 45 years of extended supervision.



In November 2018, Treu was driving a black Ford F-150 pickup truck north on a highway in Lake Hallie when it crossed over a lane and into a ditch where the troop was volunteering.

He killed Jayna Kelley, 9, Autum Helgeson, 10, Haylee J. Hickle, 10 and her mother Sara Jo Schneider, 32, according to the Lake Hallie Police Department.


Another 10-year-old girl was critically injured.

Police said the group of 12 was wearing highly visible safety vests and was not on the shoulder of the road.

Treu fled the scene, but later turned himself in.


He and a passenger in the car told police that they had been "intentionally inhaling chemical vapors" or "huffing" just before the crash.

Judge James Isaacson, who handed down the sentence, told Treu it was "hard to label" what he did.

"You know it's been called a tragedy — that doesn't seem to be enough. It's been called a horrendous tragedy; senseless, thoughtless," Isaacson said.

"There's more adjectives. Avoidable is one that comes to mind. Still it's not enough."

In closing arguments, Treu's defense attorney, Carly Sebion, asked that the court "remember that Colten Treu isn't the sum of just those bad mistakes on that one day."

During sentencing, the defense team also repeatedly brought up the passenger who was in Treu's car during the crash.

That man, John Stender, has not been charged, but Chippewa County District Attorney Wade Newell said he is expected to be charged by the end of the week with intentional abuse of a hazardous substance and aiding a felon.

Newell said after sentencing that he would have preferred a longer sentence for Treu, "but I think justice was served though and that he was held accountable for what he did on November 3rd, 2018."

The Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes said in a statement that the organization was "thankful for the sentence handed down today for the deaths and injuries of our beloved Girl Scouts."

"We remain fully in support of Troop 3055, their families, and our Girl Scout community and hope today's sentencing provides some small measure of closure as the families continue to try and rebuild after immeasurable loss," the statement said.

Ex-Springboro teacher found guilty on 34 counts

by WHIO-7 (A CBS News Affiliate)




Former Springboro gym teacher, Austin Hopkins, has been found guilty of 34 of the 36 counts of gross sexual imposition after an hours long jury trial.

WHIO spoke with a parent of one of the victims following Hopkins's verdict.

"Tonight, for once, we're going to go home and sleep in peace, and its just -- after all this time, justice is finally here."

Deliberations began shortly after 10 a.m. Friday.

Prosecutors told the jury before deliberations that the case is about more than just the 28 girls, but making sure Hopkins could never hurt another child again.

Throughout the trial, jurors heard testimony from parents, detectives, and a psychologist who specializes in sex offenders.

White Man Arrested In New Hampshire For Falsely Claiming He Had Covid-19
by CBS Boston





(LEBANON, NH) – A Vermont man is accused of trying to scare people by telling them he had the Covid-19.

Police arrested David Ladeau in Lebanon, New Hampsire on Tuesday.

Ladeau was on a public bus, allegedly telling other passengers he was infected.

Other passengers evacuated but Ladeau remained on the bus until police arrived.

Police said Ladeau, who is from Hartford, VT, does not have the virus.

He was arrested and charged with false public alarm and disorderly conduct.

Another White Man Arrested After Lying About Covid-19 on Fakebook

by Colin Kalmbacher





A man in Texas was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor after admittedly lying about having tested positive for contracting the novel Coronavirus in a post on Fakebook.

According to the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office, 23-year-old Michael Lane Brandin turned himself in after causing a small panic because his post also claimed that he was told the deadly contagion had evolved to spread even more easily than it already does.

“In a comment on the post, Brandin advised that he was informed by medical professionals in Tyler County that the virus had become airborne,” a press release by the sheriff’s office notes.

“Brandin advised deputies his post was to make a point that you cannot believe everything you view online.”

Brandin’s self-described “social experiment” resulted in a slew of emergency calls to local law enforcement, medical, and emergency management authorities in East Texas—and a response from those same authorities due to the emergency declarations issued by both acting-president and Texas Governor Greg Abbott, according to police.

Tyler County sheriff’s deputies followed up with Brandin soon thereafter and learned that he was simply a prankster amidst the pandemic trying something out.

But whatever it was, it seemed to have worked—maybe just not the way the man intended.

Tyler County District Attorney Lucas Babin was furious and later posted his own Fakebook admonition aimed at Brandin and anyone who might follow in his footsteps.

“Knowingly communicating, initiating, or circulating a false report/false alarm of COVID-19 that one *knows is false or baseless*, and that would ordinarily cause action by an official or interrupt the occupation of any place of assembly, can be a criminal offense in the State of Texas,” Babin noted.

And, in this case it was.

Judge Jacques Blanchette issued an arrest warrant for Brandin on Tuesday.

He self-surrendered a few hours later and was charged with making a false alarm.

Brandin’s Class A Misdemeanor charge could result in a fine of $4,000 and/or up to a year in jail.

The false alarm charge is criminally equivalent to burglarizing an automobile.

As of Thursday morning, Texas had over 200 confirmed cases of Covid-19 infections.

White man charged with fake doctor note saying he had Covid-19
by Meg Kinnard




(COLUMBIA, South Carolina) — A South Carolina man is facing charges after authorities say he lied about having Covid-19, causing a business to shut down and creating panic in a school system.

Jeffrey Travis Long, 31, of Inman, was arrested Thursday and charged with breach of peace and forgery, Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said during a news conference.

The sheriff said Long worked at Sitel Corporation, a call center in Spartanburg County.

According to an incident report, Long showed his employer a forged doctor's excuse from a VA hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, purportedly showing he had tested positive for COVID-19.

That prompted Sitel to shut down its facility for several days for sanitizing.
 
According to authorities, Long also visited a school his children attend, causing officials there to worry that other children and families had been exposed.

“I don’t know the dollar number it cost to disinfect their whole entire building, but it was a large number," Wright said.

“It wasn’t a hundred bucks. It was more than that.”

Hospital officials told investigators they had not seen Long within the previous two weeks, and his note did not have an official stamp from the facility, Wright said.

According to Inman Police Chief Keith Tucker, the hospital Long claimed to have seen him was not even conducting COVID-19 tests at the time.

Authorities said Long was arrested and booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

It wasn't known if he had an attorney, and arrest warrants did not list a phone number.


"It seems to me like the fella just wanted a two-week, paid vacation," Wright said.
“You can't do this to people.”

As of Friday, South Carolina had reported a total of 125 COVID-19 cases across the state, with two new deaths, bringing the statewide total to three.

According to the Department of Health and Environmental Control, both of the patients were elderly and had underlying health conditions.

For most people, the virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of victims recover.

The ongoing outbreak has had economic impacts in the state as well.

On Thursday, Bridgestone Americas announced it was shutting down its manufacturing facilities in North America, which includes two tire plants in Aiken County.

In a news release, Bridgestone said the shutdown would run from March 21st through April 12th.

Officials with the South Carolina Department of Commerce said Friday that small businesses in the state “suffering substantial economic injury” resulting from the virus outbreak would be eligible to apply for low-interest federal disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

White man sentenced to 25 years for trying to bomb Oklahoma bank

by Associated Press





(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK) — An Oklahoma man was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison after being convicted of trying to blow up an Oklahoma City bank with a massive vehicle bomb, according to federal prosecutors.

Jerry Drake Varnell, 26, of Sayre, was sentenced in federal court in Oklahoma City.

When he is released from prison, he'll be under supervision for the rest of his life.
 
Varnell was arrested in August 2017 as he tried to detonate what he believed was a half-ton (450-kilogram) bomb outside BancFirst in downtown Oklahoma City.



The FBI had learned of Varnell's plan and an undercover agent posed as someone who could help construct the bomb, but instead provided inert materials.

Varnell was convicted in February 2019.

Defense attorneys claimed Varnell was entrapped and his parents testified that he is a paranoid schizophrenic, even though he was found mentally competent.

“We are thankful he did not get a sentence of life” in prison, which prosecutors had sought, defense attorney Vicki Behenna said Monday.

Manhunt underway in Washington after prison break allegedly sparked by Covid-19 panic
by Jessica Schladebeck





A manhunt was underway in Washington Tuesday morning for six inmates, who were able to bust down an emergency fire door and escape the prison amid increasing Covid-19 panic.

The Yakima County Sheriff’s Office in a Fakebook post said they have so far recaptured more than half of the 14 suspects and brought them back to prison late Monday night.

When asked about the prison break, the returned escapees told officials they were concerned about the Covid-19 outbreak and that “they were upset after the Governor’s press conference regarding the statewide order to shelter in place," KAPP-TV reported.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee on Monday announced the mandate requiring all residents to stay indoors unless they are going grocery shopping or seeing a doctor.

It marks the state’s latest efforts to curb the spread of the Covid-19, which has killed 110 residents as of Monday evening.


Since the illness first emerged in the United States, Washington has confirmed a total of 2,221 cases across 31 counties.

According to the sheriff’s office, 14 inmates escaped the Yakima County jail around 7:10 p.m. by using a table to bust down a fire door and then hopping a fence surrounding the facility.

The incident occurred on Monday in the building’s Annex C, where low-level offenders are held.


Those still missing include 31-year-old, Fernando Gustavo Castenda-Sandoval, 28-year-old Hugo Alejandro Amezcue-Hernandez, 27-year-old Miguel Angel Chavez-Amezcua, 26-year-old Andrew Wolfley, 34-year-old Tyrone Adam Mulvaney and 27-year-old Neftali Serrano.

“If anyone has information on where we can find these 6 escapees, please call the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office at (509)574-2500 and press 0 or 911,” authorities said.

Kansas massage therapist accused of misconduct with athletes

by Roxanna Hegeman



(WICHITA, Kansas) — A massage therapist charged with a sex crime involving a girl also engaged in inappropriate behavior toward at least six female athletes at the University of Kansas, including unwanted touching during massages, school officials alleged Tuesday.

Chancellor Doug Girard and Athletic Director Jeff Long said in a joint statement that investigators also found an athletic trainer was aware of at least some of the alleged incidents involving Shawn P. O'Brien but failed to appropriately report the conduct.

O'Brien provided free massages on campus to the general student population through the university's Alumni Association's finals dinner beginning in 2011 and as recently as last fall, the university said.

He also distributed gift cards that may have led to off-campus massages at his office at Medissage-Kamehameha Massage LLC in Lawrence, their statement said, adding that local law enforcement is trying to determine whether inappropriate conduct took place.

O’Brien, 48, was charged on Feb. 21 with one count of indecent liberties with a child connected to incidents that allegedly happened seven or eight years ago with one girl.
 
O'Brien's contract was subsequently nullified, and he hasn’t worked with student athletes since he was charged.

He provided massage therapy for women’s basketball, tennis, softball and soccer teams.

His attorney, Philip R. Sedgwick, said Tuesday that his client is “innocent of these charges and that's what will be found in court.”

He added that “it is kind of a sad day in our country where someone makes an allegation and people assume that is true.”

Sedgwick said he was unaware of the latest update on the investigation posted Tuesday on the university's website and that had no comment on it.

University investigators interviewed nearly 40 student athletes and seven staff members to date, and it has filed the required reports under federal law with law enforcement regarding the alleged instances it found.

The university said in its statement that it will continue its investigation into the conduct of the therapist and determine if anyone else knew of inappropriate behavior that may have occurred.

White man charged with terroristic threats for allegedly coughing on Wegmans worker

by Ben Kesslen and Michael Kosnar





A New Jersey man was charged with harassment and making terroristic threats after allegedly purposely coughing on a Wegmans grocery store employee and saying he had Covid-19.

George Falcone, 50, of Freehold, in the southern part of the state, was charged Tuesday by the New Jersey attorney general for allegedly making the threats on Sunday in a Wegmans supermarket in Manalapan.

Falcone was standing close to an employee near the store's prepared food section when the worker asked him to move back, the state attorney general said in a statement.

Instead, Falcone stepped closer to her, leaned in and coughed, the statement said.

He laughed, telling the woman he was infected with Covid-19 and also telling two other employees they are "lucky" to have jobs.

State Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said spreading fear is unacceptable during this emergency.

“These are extremely difficult times in which all of us are called upon to be considerate of each other— not to engage in intimidation and spread fear, as alleged in this case,” Grewal said in the statement.

"We must do everything we can to deter this type of conduct and any similar conduct that harms others during this emergency."

The third-degree terrorism charge carries a sentence of three to five years in state prison, and the harassment charge a sentence of up to six months.

Falcone was also charged with obstructing administration of law in the fourth degree, which carries a sentence of up to 18 months.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy called Falcone a "knucklehead" during a Tuesday press briefing, according to NJ.com."knock-knock-knock!!!"

Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni said Falcone's actions were "reprehensible."

"In times like these, we need to find ways to pull together as a community instead of committing acts that further divide us," he said in a statement.

The U.S. Justice Department said Tuesday that anyone who threatens to infect people with coronavirus can also face federal charges.

According to a memo by Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, such threats can be prosecuted under terrorism statutes because Covid-19 can be deemed a "biological agent."

SoCal man arrested by FBI for touting Covid-19 'cure,' & soliciting investments

by Eyewitness News 7, ABC News




In one of the first federal cases of its kind during the Covid-19 pandemic, a Southern California man has been arrested for allegedly claiming to have developed a cure for COVID-19 and soliciting investments in his company, according to the FBI.

Authorities say Keith Lawrence Middlebrook, 53, claimed to have developed a patent-pending cure and a treatment to prevent Covid-19 infection.

He was soliciting million-dollar investments in his company and claimed it would return hundreds of millions of dollars in profit.


Middlebrook also claimed to have Earvin "Magic" Johnson on his board.

Investigators confirmed Johnson had no involvement in the company.

Middlebook is associated with several Southern California addresses, including in Westwood, Newport Beach and Murrieta.

He was arrested Wednesday on a federal complaint of wire fraud, carrying a penalty of up to 20 years in federal prison if convicted.

The FBI alleges that Keith Lawrence Middlebrook fraudulently claimed to have invented a Covid-19 cure and solicited investments in his company to market the product.

The federal case is believed to be one of the first in the nation connected to an alleged Covid-19 scam.

"During these difficult days, scams like this are using blatant lies to prey upon our fears and weaknesses," U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said.

"While this may be the first federal criminal case in the nation stemming from the pandemic, it certainly will not be the last. I again am urging everyone to be extremely wary of outlandish medical claims and false promises of immense profits."

Middlebrook's Instagram account lists 2.4 million followers.

On it, he posted several videos claiming to have invented a pill that cures and prevents COVID-19
.

He said he has studied cell tissue and chemical biology for years.

He has also posted videos on YouTube.

"Yes I created the cure that shuts down the COVID-19, that makes the cells from the Covid-19 detach, release and die within 48 hours," he claims in one video.

One of his videos was viewed 1 million times.

He said he takes the pill every morning.

"I'm immune to catching the Covid-19," Middlebrook declared in one video.

The FBI says he was arrested after delivering pills to an undercover agent who was posing as an investor.



He said his company would produce and market the pills and said investors could earn hundreds of millions of dollars on a $1 million investment.

As the FBI notes, health experts say there is no approved cure or vaccine for Covid-19 at this time.

4 of 9 Escaped Inmates Back In Custody!
by KEVN/KOTA-TV (an ABC News affiliate)




(Pierre, South Dakota) - The latest information is that three of the escaped inmates have apprehended on the Crow Creek Reservation southeast of Pierre.

They are Kelsey Flute, Jordan Wakeman and Pamela Miller.

Nine women from the state’s minimum-security unit in Pierre took off on a walkabout Monday night.

According to a release from the South Dakota Department of Corrections, the nine walked out about 8:43 p.m.

Three of the women were sentenced out of Pennington County.

One person who escaped was caught by Rapid City police.

They arrested 28-year-old Samantha Waters at a home after they got a tip she was in town.

Waters was serving time on drug and forgery convictions.

Initially, the state release said eight women escaped.

The acknowledgement that there were originally nine escapees didn't come until Governor Kristi Noem's COVID-19 news conference Tuesday morning; when a question was raised about contact these escapees might have had with another inmate who tested positive for the virus.
 
Secretary of Health Kim Malsam-Rysdon said the state is working to establish how much contact there was.

The captured inmate was reportedly tested for the virus but results are not known at this time.

The women now face escape charges, a felony that could cost them five more years in prison.

The escapees are:
• Philomene E. Boneshirt is serving a 7-month, 15-day sentence for 3rd-degree simple assault and a consecutive 1-year sentence for possession of a controlled substance. Both convictions are from Minnehaha County.
• Jordan F. Wakeman is serving a 6-year, 7-month, 5-day sentence, a consecutive 5-year sentence with 5-years suspended and an additional consecutive sentence of 2 years. All of the convictions are for possession of a controlled substance from Minnehaha County.
• Sylvia R. Red Leaf is serving two 3-year, 9-month, 15-day sentences for possession of a controlled substance and a 1-year, 9-month, 15-day sentence for eluding. All of the convictions are from Pennington County.
• Alice M. Richards is serving three 5-year sentences with 3-years suspended on each. All of the convictions are for possession of a controlled substance and are from Pennington County.
• Kayla A. Lamont is serving two sentences of 2-years, 7-months and 20-days for possession of a controlled substance and a 2-year, 7-month and 20-day for second-degree robbery. All of her convictions are from Pennington County.

Texas white man jailed for online threats against Nancy Pelosi
by The Associated Press





(WICHITA FALLS, Texas) - A Texas man faces federal charges after he made online posts threatening Democrats, including U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, authorities said.

Gavin Weslee Blake Perry, 27, of Wichita Falls, was charged Wednesday with transmitting a threatening communication in interstate commerce.

According to federal prosecutors, Perry wrote on Fakebook that Democrats, including Pelosi, “will be removed at any cost necessary and yes that means by death.”

Perry remained jailed Friday and court records do not list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Federal prosecutors said Perry admitted making the Fakebook posts and that he told law enforcement he did so because he wanted to warn Americans to beware of the government.

If convicted, Perry faces up to five years in prison.
