    We’ve covered plenty of stories coming from the ongoing corruption trials of donors to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio, but the most recent one is turning into a highlight reel for Page Six. We previously noted how de Blasio had been subpoenaed to testify in the trial involving campaign finance violations and bribery with City Hall donor Jeremy Reichberg and NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant. Many of the details of those charges were routine, boring allegations of political malfeasance. Promises were made, donations were solicited and “favors” were done.But not all of the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – In what pro-lifers are attributing to the hand of God, a Washington D.C. court has dismissed charges against four pro-lifers arrested in a July Red Rose Rescue. The pro-life supporters and their attorney with Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF) were prepared for trial, when the charges of criminal trespass were promptly and unexpectedly dismissed due to there being no witnesses for the prosecution. “Great victory in court today,” Citizens for a Pro-life Society (CPLS) Director Monica Migliorino Miller told supporters via email Thursday. “Charges dismissed against the 4 Red Rose Rescuers – Except...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.-- The Staten Island lady who scaled Lady Liberty wants a group of her peers to decide her fate -- not a judge -- when her case heads for trial this fall. Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, is asking for a jury trial, even though she does not have a legal right to one considering the "petty offenses" she is facing, according to court papers filed in Manhattan federal court. The St. George resident faces charges of trespassing, interfering with agency functions and disorderly conduct after climbing to the base of the landmark and refusing to get down, officials...

Defense Attorney Ron Kuby, who is representing Okoumou, said his client is eager for her court date, calling the jury system, "the conscience of the people." She pleaded not guilty on July 5 to charges of trespassing, interfering with agency functions and...

Ashton was instrumental as Casey Anthony's prosecuting attorney in letting the murderer of her own child get off Scot free!! Howard is a great friend and a fantastic judge and attorney. He has been a magistrate for over 14 years hearing domestic type cases so he is very experienced at discerning lies. HOWARD FRIEDMAN - YES! Jeff Ashton - NO! NO! NO!

    Jurors are seeing Bill Cosby's travel records as his lawyers make the case that he never visited his suburban Philadelphia mansion in the month he's accused of drugging and molesting a woman there. Cosby's lawyers are challenging the prosecution's contention that the alleged assault happened within the 12-year statute of limitations. The defense produced logs for Cosby's private jet flights in January 2004, as well as several days' worth of schedules listing his whereabouts and media appearances. The 80-year-old comedian's personal assistant testified the flights coincided with comedy performances and other events on Cosby's schedule. The schedules do not show...

    The Turkish government is using Pastor Brunson's detention as a bargaining chip. In exchange for his freedom, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had demanded the return to Turkey from the United States of self-exiled cleric Fethullah Gülen, a political opponent, whom Erdogan claims was behind the failed coup against him in the summer of 2016. "They are treating the U.S. government with contempt and paying no price for it." — Pastor Andrew Brunson, March 17, 2018. Turkey -- a NATO member holding an American political prisoner hostage -- has so far faced no consequences. An American Pastor, Andrew Brunson,...
