    SANFORD – Sujatha Guduru, the Oviedo mother who fatally shot her 17-year-old daughter then tried to kill herself, refused to accept an act of mercy by prosecutors on Wednesday. They offered her a plea deal that would have reduced her sentence from life in prison to 30 years, but she rejected it. She would plead guilty, she said, only if she were allowed to spend the rest of her life in prison.

    Ramon Ochoa probably isn’t laughing now. Ochoa, who had previously served about six years for firearms possession by a felon, got into trouble with his probation officer, which resulted in Ochoa being back inside a Fresno courtroom. Ochoa’s mouth got him into more hot water when he laughed at O’Neill’s sentence, saying, “Anything else?” “Well, you just talked yourself into more time,” O’Neill replied. The judge doubled Ochoa’s sentence to two years for laughing at the court.

    A California judge has reduced a child rapist's mandatory 25-year sentence down to only 10 - saying anything longer would be 'cruel and unusual punishment'. Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly told an Orange County jury that 20-year-old Kevin Jonas Rojano-Nieto 'did not intend to harm' the three-year-old girl he raped at his family home in June. The judge said that he was sure that although Rojano-Nieto sodomized the girl and covered her mouth so she couldn't scream out, 'there was no violence or callous disregard for the victim's well-being'.

    Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza spoke out tonight about his five-year probation and eight-month sentence to a community confinement center on Fox News. D’Souza told Megyn Kelly, “My faith in an independent judiciary is affirmed.” D’Souza was indicted in January for campaign finance, and pled guilty in May. D’Souza had suggested on multiple occasions that he was targeted for his criticisms of President Obama, a charge prosecutors strongly denied. D’Souza repeatedly said in his interview tonight that there’s been an “all-out attempt to put me away,” and while he didn’t directly say it was the Obama administration, he did note there’s...

    In a decision likely to be framed by conservative media as a vindictive abuse of power, filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza was sentenced Tuesday to eight months in a confinement center and five years probation after pleading in May that he was guilty of violating campaign finance laws. D'Souza's movies, America this year and two years earlier, 2016: Obama's America, are critical of the left — and in the case of the first one, President Barack Obama — and they are among the most successful political documentaries in history. D'Souza was indicted in January after he promised his then-fiancee and his former...

    The Montana Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned a one-month sentence that was widely condemned as too lenient for a former high school teacher convicted of raping a 14-year-old student. The court ordered a new judge to re-sentence defendant Stacey Dean Rambold, who has been free since completing the previous term last fall. Yellowstone County Attorney Scott Twito said that according to state sentencing laws, the decision means Rambold must serve a minimum of two years in prison. The high court's decision cited in part the actions of District Judge G. Todd Baugh, of Billings, who suggested the young victim shared...

    In late summer 2012, Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance ordered one his "marksman to engage" Afghan men approaching their position on a motorcycle. The marksmen killed two of the three men; because they were unarmed, Lorance was charged, tried, and, in just over a year, sentenced to 20 years in Leavenworth. Yet as the Washington Times reports, the charges ignore the fact that "a common enemy tactic is for unarmed fighters on motorcycles... to track [U.S.] unit movements... with cell phones." On the other hand, after Army Major Nidal Hasan killed 13 soldiers and wounded more than 30 during his...

    The High Court Monday morning reduced by one year a jail term for Anat Kam, convicted of stealing and exposing IDF documents while she was a soldier. She turned over the material to Haaretz journalist Uri Blau, who was sentenced to four months of community service. Kam filed the appeal after Blau's relatively light sentence. Kam stole and passed on to Blau more than 2,000 classified documents while she served in the army. She was sentenced last year to four and a half years in jail, and the judges at the time said the stiff sentence was necessary to make...

    Shortly after the court in Norway sentenced Anders Behring Breivik, who murdered 77 people just over a year ago, to 21 years in prison, he apologized for not having murdered more people. Asked whether he intends to appeal the sentence that was handed down to him, Breivik said, “Since I do not recognize the authority of the court, I cannot recognize the legitimacy of the punishment it gave me. Accordingly, I cannot appeal.” When he was asked on Friday whether he wants to apologize or express remorse for his actions, Breivik responded, “I definitely want to apologize. I apologize to...
