    Casey Anthony, acquitted of charges that she murdered her daughter Caylee, filed an appeal today of her conviction that she lied to law enforcement officers. The appeal came days before Anthony, 25, is scheduled to leave jail. She was sentenced to four years on four counts of lying to investigators about Caylee's death. Since she has already served three years and is credited for good behavior, she will be released from the Orange County jail on Sunday. The jury that acquitted her of murder agreed that she broke the law when she told police she worked at Universal Studios, that...

    SIERRA VISTA — Places across Southern Arizona, like Tombstone, Bisbee and Old Tucson, have been able to keep their Wild West history very much alive. The historic pasts of these locations have been so well preserved that it sometimes feels like many of their original residents still thrive among the living through interactions that can only be explained as “paranormal activity.” The paranormal is a concept that people may choose to believe in or not. Regardless of beliefs, people know where to find supernatural activity within Cochise County, in ghost towns and in tourist towns. But one place goes unnoticed,...

HUNTINGTON -- At the Huntington Work Release Center, 50 male inmates and 12 female inmates reside. According to Deputy Commissioner James J. Ielapi of the West Virginia Division of Corrections, these are a low custody classification of inmates who are physically able to work. “It’s a step toward going back to a community to live.” The center, located on Fifth Avenue in Huntington, has supervisors who keep track of inmates.

    Paris would back IMF chief if he wants French jailSTAFF WRITER 1:6 HRS Paris, May 22 (AFP) France would support any request from former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn to serve jail time back home if he is convicted in New York on sex assault charges, the interior minister said today. Interior Minister Claude Gueant said he was not prejudging the outcome of the sensational court case, in which former presidential hopeful Strauss-Kahn is accused of a May 14 sex attack on a New York hotel chamber maid. But if Strauss-Kahn is found guilty, and if he himself would rather serve...

    Police applicant jailed on child porn chargeBy Pauline Repard Tuesday, May 17, 2011 at 1:27 p.m. SAN DIEGO — A Chula Vista man who authorities say admitted on a San Diego police job application that he once had sexual contact with a child and had viewed child pornography has been arrested. The 38-year-old man’s answers on a lengthy hiring questionnaire prompted police to investigate and seize computers, cameras and pictures of “exotic girls,” according to a search warrant document filed May 11. Robert Lee Williams was arrested the same day and remains jailed on suspicion of possessing child porn. His...

    NEW YORK -Dominique Strauss-Kahn's reputation with women earned him the nickname "the great seducer," and not even an affair with a subordinate could knock the International Monetary Fund leader off a political path pointed in the direction of the French presidency. All that changed with charges that he sexually assaulted a maid in his hotel room, a case that generated shock and revulsion, especially in his home country. Police said the maid picked Strauss-Kahn out of a lineup. Unless the charges are quickly dropped, they could destroy his chances in a presidential race that is just starting to heat up....

    The Telegraph: A Spanish mother has taken revenge on the man who raped her 13-year-old daughter at knifepoint by dousing him in petrol and setting him alight. He died of his injuries in hospital on Friday. Antonio Cosme Velasco Soriano, 69, had been sent to jail for nine years in 1998, but was let out on a three-day pass and returned to his home town of Benejúzar, 30 miles south of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca. While there, he passed his victim’s mother in the street and allegedly taunted her about the attack. He is said to have called out...

    The Obama Administration is playing the convict prison card. Most Americans want criminals incarcerated longer in more austere less elaborate facilities. The facts are that many prisons have become playgrounds. Between Yale and jail this discussion will concentrate on doing hard time behind bars eliminating the “Three Hots and a Cot” leisure Plaza Hotel prison mentality. Amendment VIII of the United States Constitution asserts, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted”; then whereas, this narrative will focus on the enlightened humanitarian side of incarceration it will also examine innovative and possibly pertinent...

    Some years back I had the great opportunity to preach in a prison facility. This blessing extended for about two years. It really enabled me to see and understand a great number of things about those inside and outside of the prison system. I am not a person who is in favor of any frills or extras in the prison system. I guess you can say I am a Sheriff Joe Arpaio fan. If an individual breaks the law, my preference is the punishment seriously deters them from every committing the same mistake. Not only should it deter the transgressor,...

    "The Queen of Mistresses: Meet the unlikely heroine whose lovers made her a billionaire - and who she repaid by landing them in jail" At the gilded gates of a colonial mansion in China's seaside city of Qingdao, giggling young couples pose for snapshots, craning their necks to peer in at the sumptuous grounds and gossip about the scandalous liaisons of the female billionaire who lived there. 'I think she's amazing,' says 24-year-old legal secretary Yan Lili, who made a trip after reading Li Wei's story on the internet. 'She has proved that women can have real power in China...

    This being the case, I asked Daniels to guide me through the data mine field and help me ascertain what we know for sure about the world's best-known Social Security number – 042-68-4425. "All I can say," says Daniels of 042-68-4425, "is that it's phony and [Obama] has been using it, with it first appearing on his Selective Service document in 1980." Daniels sent me a copy of the hand-written application of the individual who held the number immediately before Obama's, 042-68-4424. The applicant, Thomas Wood, died at age 19, which is why his information is available.

    Contrary to Hollywood notions, the 40-year-old virgin is not an awkward yet funny and endearing electronics salesman played by Steve Carell. He is a church-going teetotaller who has neither been to jail nor served in the military, according to a new survey of more than 7000 people. He also represents an estimated 1.1 million American men and 800,000 women aged 25 to 45 who have never had sex. The study, led by urologist Michael Eisenberg of the University of California, San Francisco, will appear in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine. His team's survey found that 13.9...

    The woman who authorities say killed her teenage daughter and son because she was fed up with them talking back and being mouthy will not appear in court Saturday because she's being treated at a hospital for an unknown condition. Authorities say Julie Powers Schenecker was taken to Tampa General Hospital shortly after midnight Saturday to be treated for a medical condition that existed before she was taken to jail. Hillsborough Sheriff's deputies — who oversee jail inmates — said they could not reveal Schenecker's medical condition, citing health care privacy laws. An arrest affidavit said Schenecker shot her son...

  • Blogger gets 33 months for threatening judges

    A right-wing New Jersey blogger has been sentenced to 33 months for making death threats against three federal judges in Illinois. Hal Turner was sentenced today in Brooklyn federal court. The case stemmed from the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in 2009 by three judges that upheld a district court decision dismissing lawsuits that challenged handgun bans in Chicago and Oak Park. Turner protested the decision with inflammatory remarks posted on the Internet. Prosecutors said he crossed the line by declaring, "These judges must die."
