Fricker committed the offences between May 16 and 17 with an alleged accomplice, identified as Dane Alexander Lloyd, a Briton who has since left Singapore.

    A professor whose views on the Holocaust irked critics plans to risk arrest by showing up on the first day of classes next week at DePaul University after officials canceled his courses, took away his office and put him on leave.

Critics find issue with Finkelstein, the son of Holocaust survivors, who believes that some Jews have exploited the Holocaust. Finkelstein is the author of five books, including "The Holocaust Industry: Reflections...

    Joseph Page was asleep in bed in his Santa Rosa home when he heard glass shatter, feared someone was breaking in and got his shotgun to defend himself, his lawyer said Tuesday. Page, in jail on a $1-million cash bond on two counts of murder in the deaths of two young women, was a victim of a group of kids trespassing and scaring him in the dark— not a murderer, said Assistant Public Defender Lelia Hood. .... This is a horrible, horrible tragedy," Hood said. "But what are people supposed to do if someone is coming into their home and...

    GLEN Rodgers found the force against him when he was thrown in a cell overnight for breaking into his own home while dressed as a Jedi Knight.

A neighbour heard the crash and called cops, who collared Glen inside. They carted him off still wearing his outfit. Pub manager Glen was then locked up for 13 hours on suspicion of criminal damage in Barnstaple, Devon. He was...

    JAFFREY, N.H. -- A man from Mexico pleaded guilty on Tuesday to trespassing in the town of New Ipswich, N.H., as the police passed the first test of whether they can use trespassing laws against illegal immigrants on public property. Police Chief Garrett Chamberlain charged Jorge Ramirez, 21, with trespassing after federal immigration officials refused to take him into custody. He reasoned that if Ramirez was in the country illegally, he also was in the town illegally. Ramirez had admitted being in the country on forged documents. There was some question about whether the judge would allow police to prosecute...
