    The obsessed French-Canadian actress who made Alec Baldwin’s life a living hell was found guilty Thursday of stalking and other charges. Genevieve Sabourin, who turned her trial into a circus when she heckled Baldwin and his wife Hilaria on the stand, stayed silent and looked glum as the judge declared her guilty on all counts — and gave her a piece of his mind. “You had no right to continue communications or pursue contact you knew to be unwanted and unwelcome,” Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaum said. “Your relentless and escalating campaign of threats and in person appearances in...

    A bicyclist who fatally struck a 71-year-old man who was crossing the street in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood was sentenced Thursday to three years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service. Chris Bucchere, 37, cut a deal with prosecutors last month, pleading guilty to felony vehicular manslaughter and avoiding a jury trial that could have exposed him to prison time if he had been convicted. The charge was the most serious ever brought in the U.S. against a cyclist in a fatal crash with a pedestrian, said District Attorney George Gascón. He said the victim's family did not want...

    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A paroled felon was sentenced Thursday to 35 years and eight months in state prison in connection with the fatal shooting death of a man near the former Occupy Oakland encampment in November 2011 and for a sexual assault that occurred five days later. Issac McDaniels, 32, of Oakland, had faced a potential life term for sexually assaulting a woman on 13th Avenue in Oakland on Nov. 15, 2011, but prosecutors dropped a kidnapping charge against him last November in exchange for him pleading no contest to four felonies. The charges are forced oral copulation and...

    A federal judge sentenced Tony Rezko to 10 1/2 years in prison Tuesday, describing his actions under Rod Blagojevich’s tenure as “selfish and corrupt.” Rezko has already served about 44 months. His daughter burst into tears at hearing the sentence. U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve said she found it offensive that Rezko put at risk the Teachers’ Retirement System by scheming for kickbacks with a board member in 2004. “You put their retirements at risk for your own greed and your own thirst for power,” St. Eve said. A pale, thin Rezko gave a brief statement before he learned...

"I found a ridiculous system full of gray areas and I manipulated it," a sobbing Ring told the judge in asking her not to lock him up. It was the first time he spoke about the charges...

    An Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning was subjected to a mock execution by hanging. In preparation for her death, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani wrote her will and embraced her cellmates in Tabriz prison. But the mother-of-two, who was acquitted of murdering her husband but found guilty of adultery, was not led to the gallows. Her son told The Guardian: ‘Pressure from the international community has so far stopped them from carrying out the sentence but they’re killing her every day by any means possible.’
