  • Federal judge tosses out life sentences for DC sniper Malvo

    McLEAN, Va. — A federal judge on Friday tossed out two life sentences for one of Virginia's most notorious criminals, sniper Lee Boyd Malvo, and ordered Virginia courts to hold new sentencing hearings. In his ruling, U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson in Norfolk said Malvo is entitled to new sentencing hearings after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that mandatory life sentences for juveniles are unconstitutional. Malvo was 17 when he was arrested in 2002 for a series of shootings that killed 10 people and wounded three over a three-week span in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, causing widespread...

    A crowd gathered for a Donald Trump campaign rally in Wisconsin on Monday evening broke out into a chant against House Speaker Paul Ryan, who hails from the state. “Paul Ryan sucks!” chanted the Green Bay crowd as a local GOP official spoke onstage. Ryan, the highest-ranking elected Republican official in the country, said earlier this month that he would no longer defend Trump or campaign for him throughout the remainder of the election season. "The speaker is going to spend the next month focused entirely on protecting our congressional majorities," Zack Roday, the press secretary for the speaker's political...

    Police in Philadelphia have arrested a group of juveniles in connection with attacks on Roman Catholic High School students. Sources tell Action News that the attack on a Roman Catholic student last month was caught on surveillance video. That video was in part what led to the arrest of the four juveniles. Police tell us all four juveniles have admitted to their involvement in that attack. Police say that during questioning one of the four juveniles admitted to also being involved in an attack on another Roman Catholic student, Jimmy Fallon, who was jumped the same week as the other...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Inmates who were sentenced to life imprisonment as juveniles should be able to file for a re-evaluation -- and possibly attain parole, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday. In a 6-to-3 ruling, the high court ruled a 2012 decision prohibiting minors from being sentenced to life in prison without parole should be retroactive to include all applicable cases. In delivering the opinion for the court, Justice Anthony Kennedy said the ruling doesn't automatically grant parole -- just the right to a review, which could lead to parole.

    A large group of juveniles robbed a designer store in Georgetown Tuesday evening and stole $13,000 worth of items, according to D.C. Police. The incident happened just before 6 p.m. at the Diesel store in the 3000 block of M Street NW. More than 20 people, police said, went into the store and grabbed several items off the racks, according to a police report. They stole four leather jackets, costing about $800, and an additional $12,000 worth of merchandise. One person who worked at the store was said to have been pushed from him behind by someone in the crowd....

    After an early morning brush with crime, a Wauwatosa city official is giving thanks to the officers who halted a potentially dangerous situation. Shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sept. 1, Alderman John Dubinski awoke to strange noises coming from outside his home in the 7900 block of Milwaukee Avenue. Dubinski said he looked out his window to see five individuals outside on his driveway, near his family's two vans. Suspects were inside each of the family's vehicles, two females were standing in the driveway "acting as lookouts" and a third was "holding a handgun in the ready position," Dubinski said. "He...

    Leading into a key hearing in her case Tuesday, one of two Waukesha girls charged in the Slender Man stabbing case has asked a judge to declare the law that required her to be charged as an adult unconstitutional and dismiss the case. Attorneys for 13-year-old Anissa Weier filed a motion last week challenging the law as it applies to her, saying it violates the Eighth Amendment's ban on cruel and unusual punishment, and that keeping her from the juvenile court system violates her rights to equal protection and due process. Weier and Morgan Geyser, 12, are charged as adults...

    ONE of the most notable demographic trends of the last two decades has been the delayed entry of young people into adulthood. According to a large-scale national study conducted since the late 1970s, it has taken longer for each successive generation to finish school, establish financial independence, marry and have children. Today’s 25-year-olds, compared with their parents’ generation at the same age, are twice as likely to still be students, only half as likely to be married and 50 percent more likely to be receiving financial assistance from their parents. People tend to react to this trend in one of...

MailOnline can also reveal that James Edwards, 15, who Jones allegedly said pulled the trigger, was known to have a 'very short' temper and is 'incredibly violent'.

    The Truth About Guns ^ | Aug 21, 2013 | Nick Leghorn
    Yesterday, CNN was all over the story of three teenagers in Oklahoma who shot and killed a baseball player who was walking down the street just to watch him die. It’s a horrific story, and these teens definitely deserve to fry, but as with every other gun-related story the mainstream media picks up on, it’s being used to demonize the NRA and further the gun control agenda. But consider the following: these teens were too young to legally purchase firearms in the first place. So, in fact, the proposed gun control bill that Democrats still have their panties in a...

    FARGO – Two of three men who confronted a group of juveniles they suspected of terrorizing a south Fargo neighborhood Saturday night have been charged with a crime. The case puts a spotlight on the risk residents take when they intervene in what they believe is illegal behavior, police said. And because the confrontation between three men and three 15-year-old boys involved firearms, the incident has parents wondering how close their children came to being shot.

    Pope Francis washed and kissed the feet of a dozen inmates at a juvenile detention center in a Holy Thursday ritual that he celebrated for years as archbishop and is continuing now that he is pope. Two of the 12 were young women, a remarkable choice given that the rite re-enacts Jesus' washing of the feet of his male disciples. The Mass was held in the Casal del Marmo facility in Rome, where 46 young men and women currently are detained. Many of them are Gypsies or North African migrants, and the 12 selected for the foot-washing rite included Orthodox...

    s I posted earlier, the 17-year-old Houston resident was shot to death Tuesday by a police SWAT team during a drug raid on his family's home. It's increasingly looking like yet another paramilitary drug raid gone horribly wrong. The father of a 17-year-old killed by a police officer who was looking for drugs at his home said the shooting was unprovoked. [...] The elder Castillo said his son was awakened by the pleas of his 20-year-old sister, Ashley. When the younger Castillo turned toward Falks, he said, the officer shot him in the face. "My son heard her say, 'Don't...

    A teenage boy found guilty in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court of raping a girl in the stairwell of Churchland High School will serve indeterminate supervised probation, according to Commonwealth's Attorney Earle C. Mobley. The youth, 16 at the time, was arrested after a 15-year-old girl reported the May 30 assault. The Virginian-Pilot does not identify victims of sex crimes and generally does not identify juvenile defendants. The victim told police she and the boy had been playing around when he started to pull down her pants, then got on top of her and penetrated her, according to a...

    Minority youth are more often arrested and in Washington state’s court system than their white counterparts, according to a recent study. Minority youth are arrested and in the Washington state court system more often than their white counterparts, a recent study commissioned by the state Supreme Court shows. But researchers said that counties aren’t keeping complete data on ethnicity and that the gap between minority and white youth is larger. Between 2007 and 2011, African-American youth were nearly 250 percent more likely to be referred to juvenile court for prosecution than their white counterparts. They are followed by Native-American youth,...

She was met in the driveway by the brother of Byron David Smith, the man who is in the Morrison County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder after telling deputies he shot the pair when they broke into his house, where he lived alone. He is to make his first court appearance on Monday. The bodies of Nicholas Brady, 17, and...
