    Remember when we talked about Florida State Attorney Aramis Ayala last month? She was assigned the case of Markeith Loyd, a man whose many crimes included executing a police officer in cold blood. Without any warning of her position while running for that office, Aramis declared that she would not seek the death penalty in Loyd’s trial and, just to put some icing on the cake, announced that she wouldn’t be taking that step for any criminals, no matter how heinous their deeds. That got her into a confrontation with Governor Rick Scott (along with an army of enraged constituents)...

    A few dozen inmates who remain locked up in Cook County Jail because theyre too poor to post their relatively low bonds may be out soon under a new program States Attorney Kim Foxx announced for indigent, nonviolent offenders Wednesday. After the Cook County Sheriffs Office singled out 50 cases of those who were languishing in jail for several months because of their inability to post $1,000 or less, the States Attorney and Public Defenders offices came together to identify those inmates who would be better served outside jail, Foxx said. Through agreed motions requesting I-bonds, the inmates who qualify...

    Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history. The startling move was an apparent acknowledgement of the unlikelihood of a conviction following the acquittals of three other officers on similar and more serious charges by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....
