    Paul Shanley, a priest convicted of multiple counts of child rape, has walked free, as reported by FOX8. Shanley, 86, has spent the last 12 years behind bars after being convicted in 2005 of two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child and two counts of rape and abuse of a child, according to the sex offender registry. The Massachusetts man now begins 10 years of supervised probation, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement. Shanley was one of a number of Catholic priests convicted of child rape, the fallout from an infamous Boston Globe investigation...
  • Criminal Court Judge Angered With Prosecutors Decision on Gang Members

    Associate Judge Peggy Chiampas couldn’t believe what she heard repeatedly from the prosecutor — that the state’s attorney’s office would not pursue charges against suspects on parole or probation, some with armed robbery or aggravated assault convictions, despite clear violations, mostly for being in the company of other known gang members despite conditions of release that forbade it. Chiampas made sure for the record that everyone knew it was the prosecutor’s decision, not hers.

    Two men were on Thursday pronounced guilty of sexual assault on New Year’s Eve in Cologne and handed probationary sentences. The Cologne court found a 21-year-old Iraqi guilty and handed down a one-year probationary sentence, reports Spiegel.

[…] An Algerian man, Hassan T., was also found guilty of being an accomplice to a sexual assault that was carried out by a group of 15 to 20 men. The 26-year-old told a man who was with the two female...

    The facts known about actions taken by Hillary Clinton while secretary of state surrounding the use of an unsecure private email server for conducting government business show that she violated 10 federal statutes. Several are national-security-related felonies, just three of which include: 1. disclosure of classified information (22 documents were Top Secret), 2. unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents, and 3. destruction of evidence (erasure of the hard drive and deletion of some 30,000 emails by Secretary Clinton) after a government investigation had commenced (Benghazi hearings began Oct. 10, 2012). Comey knows of a related but lesser law violation...

    A Minneapolis man accused of threatening to kill a federal judge and FBI agents accepted a plea deal Tuesday morning to avoid a trial. Prosecutors say 20-year-old Khaalid Abdulkadir posted the threats on Twitter in December after his friend was arrested on ISIS-related terrorism charges. Abdulkadir entered a guilty plea Tuesday to a lesser misdemeanor charge of impeding a federal officer or employee. He was sentenced to three years of probation and two years of electronic monitoring.

    A man who lives across the street from a prominent drug treatment program was arrested Tuesday night on charges involving almost 1,900 packets of heroin, according to authorities. The suspect, 24-year-old Lirse Jones, was wearing an ankle bracelet because he is on probation stemming from a previous drug conviction, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik. Narcotics detectives spotted Jones pacing back and forth near the corner of Straight Street and 20th Avenue while on his cell phone, the sheriff said. Shortly after that, a man driving a black Range Rover pulled up to the curb and made an exchange...

    An attorney for an anti-abortion activist said Thursday that his client does not plan to accept a proposed plea deal for charges related to making undercover Planned Parenthood videos. Terry Yates, the attorney for David Daleiden, who faces a felony and a misdemeanor charge, said he is prepared to head to trial if he can't quash the indictment and isn't interested in a probation offer that would keep Daleiden out of prison. Daleiden surrendered to authorities Thursday, posted $3,000 bond and made two court appearances. "I'm very grateful for all the support from the public," he said afterward. Sandra Merritt,...

    An arrest warrant has been issued for a teenager who, two years ago, made national news when he was sentenced to probation in Texas for a drunken driving crash that killed four people. Ethan Couch's defense coined an infamous defense -- that he suffered from "affluenza," or that he was a rich kid who was less to blame for his crime because his parents didn't set limits for him. Ethan Couch's probation officer couldn't reach him this week, Couch's lawyers told CNN. Couch's mother, with whom the 18-year-old lives, is also missing, said Scott Brown and William Reagan. Their apparent...

    An undocumented immigrant who was cleared by a Brooklyn appellate court to practice law in New York has run into a potential obstacle to joining the bar after an Iowa state judge sentenced him to one year of probation for trespassing during a political rally held on private property.

He and other demonstrators sat among about 1,500 attendees on the private property. At one point, he rose and disrupted a speech by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, asking...

    Hold your breath forever waiting for Obama’s Justice Department to take action or even make mention of this hate group urging to kill white babies. Can you fathom what would happen if the colors were reversed here?It’s easy to call these hateful ignoramus’ but I think the important factor here is that they’ve become emboldened by the fact that their racist and violent actions and words in the past have been met with no resistance from this White House. Our guy Joe Newby has the story: In a video posted at Breitbart.com on Tuesday, a New Black Panther Leader identified...

And then he tells you to start from scratch and do it again. Or imagine that your boss assigns you to design an advertising campaign. You hire the models and photographers, write the copy, build the storyboards, film the commercials and print ads… and present them for his consideration. He...

    The US corrections population dropped to its lowest point since 2003, US Attorney General Eric Holder announced Friday. The number of Americans in prison, jail, parole, or probation dropped to less than 6.9 million in 2013, down 41,500 compared to 2012 and hitting the lowest point since 2003, according to a report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Until 2008, the corrections population had been steadily growing for decades as all levels of government enforced tough-on-crime policies — particularly against drug offenses — that tied up more people in the criminal justice system. But states and the federal government, facing...

    SAN DIEGO - Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner today was free to leave his downtown residential building for the first time in three months, having completed 90 days of house arrest. The period of home confinement, which included GPS monitoring, was the result of the 71-year-old's guilty pleas last fall to false imprisonment and battery, stemming from allegations of sexual harassment by three women. The improprieties led the former Democratic congressman to leave office last Aug. 30. Though no longer on house arrest, Filner remains on three years probation.

Steps to revoke Jensen’s deferred judgment—potentially jailing her for an unknown period of time—started in December and resulted in a court filing earlier this month. “Ms. Jensen has produced urinalysis tests which tested positive for THC on the following dates: March 21, 2012, October 8, 2012, and October 26, 2012,” reads a summons and complaint filed...
