By watching television of course.  And yes, I was innocent.  The case was dismissed and has since been expunged.

Judge issues arrest warrant for man accused in GoFundMe scam
by Associated Press



(MOUNT HOLLY, N.J.) A judge has issued an arrest warrant for a homeless veteran charged with engaging in a GoFundMe scheme after he failed to make a scheduled court appearance.

Johnny Bobbitt was due in a New Jersey court Tuesday to face charges that he violated court-ordered conditions that allowed for his release from jail while awaiting trial.

Bobbitt's lawyer John Keesler says he spoke with his client Friday and expected him to appear in court.

Prosecutors say the 35-year-old conspired with Katelyn McClure and her then-boyfriend Mark D'Amico to concoct a story about Bobbitt giving McClure his last $20 for gas.


Bobbit and the New Jersey couple raised $400,000, which authorities say was spent on luxury items and casino trips.


Banished To The Phantom Zone!*

GoFundMe says it has refunded everyone who contributed to the campaign.

Fugitive Nail  Salon Murderer... Nailed!
by Associated Press


(LAS VEGAS) Police say a 21-year-old woman sought for almost two weeks after allegedly skipping out on a $35 manicure and using a stolen car to run over and kill a manicurist in Las Vegas has been arrested in Arizona.

Las Vegas police say Krystal Whipple was arrested Friday in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale by a team of fugitive hunters involving Phoenix-area police, county investigators and FBI agents.

Whipple was identified as the customer-turned-assailant seen on video leaving a nail salon Dec. 29 and driving a black sedan that allegedly ran over 51-year-old Ngoc Q. Nguyen.

Police say Whipple tried to pay with a fraudulent credit card and told Nguyen that she was going to her car to get cash before killing her as she drove away.

Murder with a pinch of Underage Kidnapping
by Associated Press


(BARRON, Wis.) The Latest on the case of a kidnapped Wisconsin girl whose parents were fatally shot and the man accused of committing the crimes.

A criminal complaint says a Wisconsin man hid 13-year-old Jayme Closs under a bed for hours at a time and warned her that "bad things could happen to her" if anyone found her there.

Jake Thomas Patterson is charged with kidnapping Jayme and killing her parents in an Oct. 15 attack at the family's home near Barron.

The criminal complaint filed Monday says Jayme was forced to go under a bed in Patterson's remote cabin and that he would stack totes, laundry bins and barbell weights around her so she couldn't move without him noticing. The complaint says Jayme was kept up to 12 hours at a time with no food, water or bathroom breaks.

The complaint says Jayme escaped Thursday after Patterson made her go under the bed and told her he was going to be gone five or six hours. It says she pushed the bins away, crawled out, put on a pair of his shoes and fled the house.

Thirteen-year-old Jayme Closs has told police she tried to hide from the man accused of killing her parents and kidnapping her, but that he dragged her out of her home and threw her in the trunk of his vehicle.

Prosecutors filed a criminal complaint Monday charging Jake Thomas Patterson with two counts of intentional homicide, kidnapping and burglary. Investigators believe Patterson broke into the Closs home near Barron, Wisconsin, in October, killed Jayme's parents and kidnapped her.

The complaint states that Jayme and her mother hid in the bathroom as Patterson came to the front door. They heard a gunshot and knew Patterson had killed her father.

Patterson then broke down the bathroom door, shot her mother and taped Jayme's hands and ankles. He then dragged her to his car and threw her in the trunk.

Cummins* sentenced to 20 years in kidnapping of teen student

by Doha Madani


Former Tennessee teacher Tad Cummins was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison in the 2017 kidnapping of a 15-year-old girl student.


Cummins, 52, pleaded guilty in April 2018 to federal crimes of crossing state lines to have sex with a minor and obstruction of justice.


Prosecutors said in a criminal complaint after his 2017 arrest that Cummins took his victim across state lines in order to engage in "criminal sexual activity."

Cummins faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison for crossing state lines for sex with a minor and up to 20 years for obstruction of justice.

The former teacher in Columbia, Tennessee, was arrested in Northern California in April 2017, more than a month after he and his 15-year-old victim disappeared, sparking a nationwide search.

Authorities found Cummins and his victim after a tip came in saying the pair might being living "in a cabin in a remote area" of Cecilville, California.

Cummins had been suspended from his teaching job at Culleoka Unit School on Feb. 6, 2017, after another student saw him kissing his victim, according to a criminal complaint.

On the morning of March 13, 2017, Cummins left a note for his wife claiming he was leaving to "think" and asked her not to call the police. His victim was reported missing by her father later that evening.

Cummins was fired the day after an Amber Alert was issued by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. His teaching license was later revoked by the Tennessee Board of Education.

Chicago officer sentenced for murdering black teen Laquan McDonald
BBC news


Video of Van Dyke firing repeatedly at the 17-year-old was released a year later, and led to street protests.

During Friday's hearing, residents told of alleged past mistreatment at the hands of the officer.

One witness told the court Van Dyke, 40, had put him in a stranglehold after he refused to spit out a cough drop.

Another claimed that he had pushed a gun to his head as he was leaving a petrol station, and screamed racist epithets in his face.

Van Dyke's brother-in-law, who is black, also took the stand to say that he had never known the former policeman to be a "racist cop".

After a trial in October, Van Dyke was found guilty of murder as well as 16 counts of aggravated battery - one charge for each shot he fired at McDonald.


Dashcam video of the incident showed McDonald, who was high on the PCP drug at the time, refusing the officer's command to drop a knife as he walked down the street.

Friday's sentence comes one day after three former and current policemen who were accused of helping to cover up the killing were found not guilty by a different Chicago judge.

Before sentencing, Van Dyke's family and friends filed letters telling of his service to the community.

His 17-year-old older daughter took the stand earlier on Friday to blame the media for criticising "police officers for doing their jobs".

She told the court she had written a school essay about the "harsh realities" of police work, and said officer do not care about race, "they care about your safety".

Virginia fugitive, 46, who was featured on 'America's Most Wanted' two decades ago for stabbing his wife 33 times and abducting his daughter is arrested after a three-hour standoff in Florida
by Emily Crane


A fugitive who was featured on 'America's Most Wanted' 20 years ago has finally been arrested in Florida following a three-hour standoff with police.

Michael Eugene Moore, 46, was arrested in Palm Coast, south of Jacksonville, on Saturday.

Moore has had a fugitive warrant for his arrest in Virginia for two decades after he stabbed his wife and abducted their five-year-old daughter back in 1996.
 
He was caught when Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputies signaled for him to stop on Saturday after a license plate reader detected him in a stolen vehicle.

The vehicle had been reported stolen during an earlier armed robbery in Virginia during which Moore allegedly tied up the female victim before fleeing with her car.

Authorities said Moore refused to get out of the vehicle or comply with demands.

Deputies started evacuating homes as SWAT teams secured the immediate area.
 
Three hours later, Moore surrendered without incident and was taken into custody.

Moore has been on the run since March 1996 when he was featured on 'America's Most Wanted' for stabbing his wife 33 times and abducting his five-year-old daughter.
 
His wife miraculously survived the attack.

Weeks later, the little girl was found safe in Miami after the child's photo appeared on the show. She was returned to her mother in Virginia.
 
Moore remained a fugitive and had an active warrant for the assault and battery in Virginia.
 
'This incident could have had a very different outcome,' Sheriff Rick Staly said.
 
'This is a guy with an extremely violent history. We will never know what crimes we may have prevented by apprehending him.
 
'I want to thank our citizens for their patience as we worked through this incident.

I am very proud of our team and thankful that no one was injured and this violent offender is now in jail where he belongs.'
 
Following his arrest on Saturday, Moore was charged with grand theft and resisting arrest without violence in Florida.

He is also being held as a fugitive from justice for Virginia authorities.

What's this? Sportscaster warner wolf arrested?  ;D
LET'S GO TO THE VIDEO TAPE!
Arrested for covering up taking down 'Plantation' sign at his gated community

by Peter Sblendorio


The longtime sportscaster was arrested Thursday for removing letters that spelled out Plantation on both sides of a sign at the private community where he lives in Florida, according to a report from the Collier County Sheriffs Office obtained by the Daily News.

Wolf, 81, removed the word from the sign at the Classics Plantation Estates community in Naples on Nov. 30, according the report, with an official saying they obtained footage showing a man who fits Warners physical profile in the act.

Wolf had been a vocal critic of the name Plantation at board meetings, the report states, and had advocated for the word being taken off the sign.

About two weeks after the letters were removed, a man returned them to a security guard at the communitys vehicle gate.

Wolf turned himself in to authorities on Thursday. The damage he allegedly caused was valued at $1,139.50.

His charge is listed as criminal mischief over $1,000.

He left custody on Thursday on a $5,000 bond, jail records show.
Wolfs lengthy sportscasting career included working on Monday Night Baseball and the Olympics for ABC sports, and serving as a voice on the don imus show.

JUDGE ARRESTED, "I AM ABSOLUTELY OUT OF MY MIND!!!"
by Jason Murdock


An Ohio judge who was arrested after crashing her car last Sunday told a police officer at the scene that she had been drinking, newly released footage shows.

Rebecca Doherty, 55, a Portage County Common Pleas Court judge, was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence after being found inside her car at about 9:15 p.m.

I am absolutely out of my mind...I am so intoxicated Doherty can be heard shouting in the video.

Bodycam footage of the February 10 incident was obtained from Brimfield Police Department yesterday via a public records request submitted by media outlet the Record-Courier.

The crash took place at Route 43 in Brimfield as weather conditions were cold and snowy.


Mam, you have got vomit down here on your door, have you been drinking? an officer says in the clip. Yes, the judge replied.

Her cell phone was reportedly found in a pool of vomit.

In a later section of the video, Doherty was seen having difficulty signing her name on forms.

The Record-Courier reported the judge was charged after refusing to give a breath sample.
 
Do you know who I am? she asked deputies multiple times, the footage seemingly shows.

Mass. Woman Sent to Jail for Sending Texts to Teen Boyfriend Urging Him to Kill Himself

by Jeff Truesdell


*sniff* 

Michelle Carter has begun her 15-month jail sentence one week after a court upheld her involuntary manslaughter conviction for urging her teenage boyfriend to kill himself in 2014 via texts and other statements, according to multiple media reports.

Deputies put handcuffs on the Massachusetts woman, now 22, on Monday in Taunton District Court after Bristol County Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz withdrew the suspended sentence that had allowed Carter to remain free while her 2017 conviction was appealed, reports NECN.com, WPRI and the Boston Globe.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled on Feb. 4 that the conviction and sentence should stand.

Carters attorneys say they will pursue a further review of her case by the U.S. Supreme Court, reports the Boston Herald.

Carter was 17 when, on July 13, 2014, authorities found her boyfriend, 18-year-old Conrad Roy III, dead in his pickup in a Fairhaven parking lot from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Citing hundreds of texts and statements that came to light after Roys suicide, prosecutors said Carter urged him to kill himself, highlighting her written admission to a friend that she told Roy to get back in the truck as he stepped out and shared his fears with her in a phone call in the moments before he died.

In finding Carter guilty, Judge Moniz highlighted two revelations from Carters trial.

As Roy expressed his desire to abort his fatal plan by getting out of the truck, Carter told him to get back in. Then she initially failed to tell anyone else about it.

She did nothing, said Moniz. She did not call the police or Mr. Roys family.

Finally, she did not issue a simple additional instruction [to Roy]:

Get out of the truck.

The Massachusetts high court ruling echoed that theme when it rejected Carters appeal.
