    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A federal judge in Manhattan set a trial date Tuesday for the St. George woman accused of climbing the Statue of Liberty on the Fourth of July. Theresa Okoumou, who allegedly made her way to the base of the landmark, will have the chance to present her case to a jury on Nov. 5. 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...

    Vote Howard Friedman for Orange-Osceola circuit court judge. Please! Do not allow incompetent, boorish Jeff Ashton become a judge of the good people of central Florida! 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!

  • U.S. preacher on trial in Turkey wanted Christian Kurdish state – anonymous witness

    An anonymous witness at the trial of a U.S. preacher in Turkey said the American evangelistÂ’s ultimate aim was to set up a Christian Kurdish state, pro-government newspaper Sabah said. For 23 years Andrew Craig Brunson had been seeking to convert the Kurdistan WorkersÂ’ Party (PKK) armed group to Christianity and to aid it in breaking up Turkey, the witness, a former churchgoer known only as Serhat, told the court at the pastorÂ’s trial. Brunson is accused of terrorism and espionage, and faces up to 35 years in prison. U.S. President Donald Trump has personally taken up BrunsonÂ’s case, asking...

    Queens, NY – Abortionist Robert Rho has been on trial in a Queens, New York, courtroom since April 9, 2018, for the unnecessary death of abortion patient Jaime Morales, but news coming from this important trail has so far been non-existent – until now. This week, Operation Rescue has an observer, pro-life activist Lauren Handy, in court who is giving us the first details about witnesses and evidence in the case that is expected to run through May 3. “The case against Rho seemed so cut and dried that we actually expected him to take a plea bargain.

    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...

    U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson, incarcerated in Turkey since October 2016, burst into tears at the first hearing of his trial on terrorism charges in Turkey on Monday. Brunson sobbed before telling a court in the city of Izmir that he was in a single-person cell and suffering psychologically, according to Hurriyet newspaper. Brunson said he was taking pills to treat his condition and had asked to be transferred out of solitary confinement.

    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,...

    The number one concern for Turkish President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄźan while meeting with visiting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Feb. 15 was whether he and his family members were in legal jeopardy with the long reach of the US criminal justice system. The Turkish president wanted to take WashingtonÂ’s pulse from the top US diplomat and assess what risks he may be facing for cozying up to Russia and Iran in violation of US laws and in open defiance of TurkeyÂ’s long-standing membership in transatlantic alliance. First, he was apparently quite anxious to learn whether it would be possible...

    Todd Howe, the prosecution’s star witness against Joseph Percoco, was arrested Thursday night after admitting in court that he likely had violated his cooperation deal with the feds, a source told The Post. Howe “was remanded back to custody for violating the terms of his bail,” said Nicholas Biase with the Manhattan US Attorney’s Office. Asked if Howe — who is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan — will still testify Monday in the corruption trial, the US Attorney’s Office declined comment. Under cross-examination Thursday, the longtime associate of Gov. Cuomo admitted he lied to his...

    The LAPD has submitted three sexual abuse cases against Harvey Weinstein to the L.A. County District Attorney’s office for possible charges, a spokesman said Thursday. No details of the allegations were released. The LAPD has previously acknowledged that it was investigating a claim that Weinstein raped an Italian model at a hotel in 2013. The LAPD also said it was investigating an allegation that Weinstein committed “lewd acts” in 2015. The LAPD submitted the three cases on Feb. 1. The D.A.’s office can choose to file a case or decline to prosecute, but it may also request additional investigation or...

    In recent weeks, there has been increasing American interest in a previously little-watched judicial saga unfolding in New York district court. Like a Turkish soap opera, it involves a dashing businessman with a pop-star wife, corruption allegations, leaked tapes of private conversations and intrigue at the highest levels of government. The trial of Reza Zarrab on charges of evading Iran sanctions, including any revelations he makes about corruption in the Turkish government, could have significant political and economic implications for Turkey. It could also damage already fraught relations between Turkey and the United States.

    U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro ruled Monday the case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy would be dismissed “with prejudice” and ordered the rancher set free after federal prosecutors willfully withheld exculpatory evidence during the 2017 trial. Navarro ruled a mistrial in the Bundy case last month after prosecutors “willful(ly)” withheld exculpatory evidence favorable to the four men on trial: Cliven Bundy, his two sons and one other person. The judge found that prosecutors had violated the defendant’s civil rights and violated federal law by hiding evidence from the court.
