Cleveland, OH ~ USA -- The acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer Saturday set off angry but mostly orderly protests while shining little light on how an event that started with a car backfiring could end in a 137-shot barrage, the patrolman firing from the hood of the car and the deaths of two unarmed black suspects. Michael Brelo, 31, put his head in his hands as the judge issued the verdict followed by angry, but peaceful, protests outside the courthouse.

Minted Thieves!

Sept. 12, 2011 1:07 p.m.

A former Philadelphia Mint police officer pleaded guilty Sept. 8 in federal court in New Jersey to stealing error Presidential dollars from the facility and selling them to a coin distributor in California for approximately $2.4 million. The stolen coins were Presidential dollars missing their edge inscription. The former Mint police officer, William Gray, 64, from North Wildwood, N.J., pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Noel L. Hillman in Camden to one count each of theft of government property and tax evasion. The tax evasion charge stems from Gray’s failure to pay taxes on the coin sales. Gray remains free on $50,000 bond pending sentencing on Dec. 20. Gray faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on the theft charge. The tax evasion charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.

According to Rebekah Carmichael from the Office of Public Affairs for the United States Attorney in New Jersey, Gray also entered guilty pleas on single mail fraud and money laundering charges included in court information filed Sept. 8.

Carmichael said it will be up to the judge at the time of sentencing Dec. 20 whether to accept the guilty pleas for the mail fraud and money laundering charges as has already been done with the theft and tax evasion counts.

Carmichael said Sept. 9 that federal authorities have not publicly identified the coin dealer in California to whom Gray was selling the stolen coins. She also would not confirm nor deny whether federal authorities have a separate investigation targeting the unidentified coin dealer.

The information containing the charges against Gray was the result of a coordinated investigation involving the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, Treasury Office of Inspector General, U.S. Postal Service and U.S. Mint police.

Tom Jurkowsky, director of the U.S. Mint’s Office of Public Affairs, told Coin World Sept. 9 that the U.S. Mint and Treasury Department’s Office of Inspector General initiated investigations to examine how the thefts occurred and to implement measures to ensure they do not happen again.

Jurkowsky said the U.S. Mint was already conducting a system-wide protection evaluation at all Mint facilities before investigations were initiated involving Gray.

Paul J. Fishman, U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey, said that the U.S. Mint has advised that it has implemented measures to improve security in all of its facilities.

Gray worked as a Philadelphia Mint police officer from June 1996 through January 2011.

He admitted before Judge Hillman that the thefts began in 2007, the year the Presidential $1 Coin Program was introduced. Gray admitted in court that he removed coins missing the edge lettering from the coining area and placed them into small bags that he then removed from the Philadelphia Mint. Gray admitted taking coins missing the edge lettering because he knew they would be more valuable to collectors. He was initially paid $20 per coin, and eventually between $70 and $75 per coin.

The error coins were then shipped for sale to the coin distributor in California from the U.S. Post Office in Rio Grande, N.J., and from the Federal Express facility in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., Gray admitted. Gray also admitted that between 2007 and 2009, he failed to report the sales of the stolen error coins on his income tax return. Gray admitted understating his tax liability by $801,651.

The information filed against Gray states he must forfeit property that is traceable to having been associated with the sale of the stolen error coins. The property to be forfeited includes $2.3 million in cash, two row houses in Philadelphia, five motor vehicles, a boat and boat motor.

At the time the Presidential $1 Coin Program was launched, the incuse edge lettering — comprising IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, the date and Mint mark — was imparted on separate edge-lettering equipment in a room removed from the coin production floor.

Not long after the first 2007 George Washington Presidential dollars were released into circulation in February 2007, collectors, dealers and the general public began reporting numerous edge errors. United States Mint officials acknowledged that tens of thousands of Washington Presidential dollars had been mistakenly moved from the coining presses to the counting and bagging equipment without first being taken to the edge inscription equipment at the Philadelphia Mint. From there, the coins were shipped to Federal Reserve Banks for release into circulation.

Thousands of the Washington, Plain Edge dollars entered the marketplace through normal circulation channels, where they were found by the public. The coins quickly began selling for large premiums over their face value.

The release of the error Washington Presidential dollars and the prices they were bringing were the subjects of news coverage not only in the numismatic press, but also in the mainstream media, prompting widespread searches for the error coins.

To reduce the possibility that similar error Presidential dollars could be produced and released into circulation, Mint officials took interim steps to identify bins of coins that had been struck but not yet given their edge inscriptions. The number of similar errors for subsequent 2007 Presidential dollars decreased considerably, though some were produced and released.

By early 2008, the edge lettering operation was integrated as the final step in the production process on the coin production floor.

The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was moved from the edge to the obverse in 2009 following complaints in 2007 and 2008 about the production of “Godless dollars” — the Presidential dollars without the edge inscriptions. Congress in 2008 ordered the motto moved from the edge to the obverse or reverse; the Mint implemented the change on the 2009 Presidential dollars.

The space for IN GOD WE TRUST replaced on the edge with 13 five-pointed stars. ■

'Amped & Tweaked' Kinesiology

Updated: 3:30 pm PDT September 3, 2011

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (WCJB) — A California professor is suspected of leading a motorcycle gang and methamphetamine drug ring. Authorities say that he’s wanted for arrest in California. Steve Kinzey, 43 (pictured left) believed to be the president of the local chapter of the Devils Diciples motorcycle club, has been the target of a 6-month narcotics and weapons trafficking investigation, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jodi Miller said. Kinzey has been an associate professor of kinesiology (the study of human movement) at California State University, San Bernardino for nearly 10 years. University president Albert K. Karnig said in a statement that the campus would assist in the investigation.

During a raid at his Highland home last week, investigators seized more than a pound of methamphetamine, rifles, handguns, body armor, leather biker vests and other biker paraphernalia and evidence of his involvement with the Devils Diciples. Investigators believed that Kinzey received large amounts of methamphetamine from a supplier and distributed the drug to a network of dealers, Miller said. Police also found an undisclosed amount of cash at the house and said all the guns recovered were unregistered, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“To have an associate professor who is a member of the Devils Diciples and allegedly dealing methamphetamine is quite alarming. I mean, it’s unusual to say the least,” Sheriff Rod Hoops said.

Kinzey’s live-in girlfriend, 33-year-old Holly Robinson, and six others suspects were arrested on drug-related charges. They included Jeremy Disney, 30, of San Bernardino, who is suspected of supplying Kinzey with the drugs. Robinson, who is believed to be a member of Devils Diciples, was arrested on suspicion of drug and weapon possession and participating in the drug ring. A call to the home she shares with Kinzey went unanswered. Authorities are searching for three other suspects.

OAKVILLE, Wash. -- Marcus Searls wants $15 million dollars from Grays Harbor County; $1 million for every time he claims a sheriff's deputy forced him to have sex. Searls filed a lawsuit against Grays Harbor County on Monday.

In February he opened Oakville's Freeworld Enterprises, a medical marijuana dispensary. The dispensary closed in June after Searls said he received a letter from the Grays Harbor County Sheriff informing him the dispensary was an illegal business.

Searls said he was under the impression the police were not going to bother his business because he was supposedly being protected by a deputy.

Searls said that deputy threatened to arrest him when he first opened the dispensary unless he agreed to have sex with him.

Local News is not naming the deputy, a 24-year veteran of the force, because he has not been charged with a crime.

In his lawsuit, Searls claims the two met on a Craigslist personal ad in January. Searls claims the two had consensual sex, but when the deputy told him he might get arrested if he opened the dispensary he tried to end the relationship. According to the lawsuit, the deputy would not allow that. The lawsuit claims the deputy told Searls, "The choice was not his to make, and that Searls would have to continue to provide sexual favors... if he wanted to be in the dispensary business." "This all caught us by surprise," said Grays Harbor Undersheriff Rick Scott. The deputy in question is on paid administrative leave while an outside agency, Lewis County, investigates the claims. Scott said the deputy admits he had a sexual relationship with Searls, but maintains it was consensual.

WINTHROP, Mass. — An auxiliary police officer with Winthrop Police Department is accused of distributing drugs while in uniform from a police cruiser. Bledar Naco, 34 (pictured above, center) was arrested by the FBI Thursday. According to authorities, Nado is charged with distributing drugs in uniform and from an auxiliary police cruiser on several occasions. Winthrop Police Chief Terence Delehanty said the department became aware of Naco's alleged activity when other law enforcement sources told him. Naco was arraigned in Federal District Court on Friday and held pending a detention hearing at federal court.

Coke Budgets!

Posted: Oct. 9, 2013 - Updated: Oct. 10, 2013 - 9:11 pm PDT Sunrise, Fla. -- Police in a Southern Florida community outside of Fort Lauderdale have been using a controversial tactic to conduct cocaine sting operations and have been raking in millions of dollars in the process. For years, the Sunrise, Fla., police have been conducting what are called "reverse stings." Undercover police detectives play the role of cocaine dealers and try to lure in potential buyers who drive or fly in from all over the country with wads of cash. If the stings are successful, informants can receive large payouts and police can seize cash, cars and other non-monetary assets. The busts have pumped millions of dollars into local coffers. The Sun Sentinel was the first to report the Sunrise Police's lucrative sting operations after the newspaper conducted a six-month investigation into the department's drug seizures. "The police are not actually finding these drug dealers on their own but they rely on paid and unpaid informants to tell them about people that might be looking for cocaine, and it became obvious to us that the reason they are doing this is because of the money," said Megan O'Matz, one of the reporters who broke the story. Sunrise, Fla., is a bedroom community, home to one of the country's biggest shopping centers and mile after mile of identical, coral-colored condos. But millions of dollars' worth of undercover drug commerce has occurred in this unlikely setting. Gus Borjas, a nurse by profession and a father of four from Homestead, Fla., got caught up in one of the Sunrise Police's cocaine stings. Lured by a paid informant he had known for years who promised to repay an old debt, Borjas agreed to bring a satchel filled with $23,000 in cash to a parking lot and, when he got there, he walked straight into a trap, Borjas said. Undercover video from the case shows a second paid informant aggressively drawing him into the action. "In order for them to keep the money they have to make ... it look like I'm buying the drugs, obviously, you know," Borjas said. Eventually, the female informant placed a kilo of cocaine in Borjas' bag to establish possession. Suddenly, Borjas was now a drug offender and facing a possible mandatory 15-year minimum sentence for narcotics trafficking. "As soon as I got arrested, as soon as they-- Just, everything clicked in my head," he said. "'Why this? Why that?' They set me up." According to Miami attorney Alan Ross, who defended Borjas in court, the scale of the Sunrise Police cocaine stings seemed almost industrial. "It's a huge business," Ross said. "It's a multimillion dollar business. It's been going on for years. It's been a daily event in the city of Sunrise." Over the past two years, the police department has netted $5.8 million in seized money, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The money was used to purchase new equipment and to pay officers involved for overtime. Some officers even doubled their salary in overtime pay alone, and in Florida, the laws also permit police to seize non-monetary assets from suspects, the paper reported. "They can take their cars, jewelry," O'Matz said. "One fella told us a cop said, 'Hey, I like the sunglasses you're wearing,' and snatched them, so there is a real profit motive for the police." Informants in these stings can also make a lot of money. According to Sunrise police reports, one informant not connected to Borjas' case was paid a total of $800,000 over five years for bringing drug buyers into sting operations. Sunrise Mayor Michael Ryan defended the practice and the police's tactics, denying that the stings were about the money. "I do dispute that was going on here was trying to do anything other than fighting crime," he said. "They're doing the best they can do, and it happens throughout all of law enforcement." When asked if the Sunrise Police seemed overzealous in trying to bring in potential drug dealers, Ryan called it an "unfair" allegation. "There are occasions when errors are made. There are occasions when somebody goes too far and it doesn't go perfect," he said. "The reality is, hundreds of arrests were made, hundreds who pled. There were cases that were made, there were additional informants built up in further cooperation with the DEA and others. This was part of the operation to stop cocaine. It was an effort to stop cocaine and heroin from getting back to other communities and it worked." Ultimately, Borjas got his $23,000 back and the prosecutor gave him a plea deal on a solicitation to purchase cocaine charge, because the female informant may have gone too far. "These people only get paid if the deal goes down," Ross said. "Gus isn't the one who pulled off his backpack and opened it up. The informant did. She takes his backpack off, she unzips it, she's reaching in for the money. Gus isn't the one who took the cocaine, she took a kilo of cocaine stuffed it in his backpack. 'Here's the backpack, go get arrested.'" "It's very unfair," he said. "Why should you go to jail if you're not a criminal? Why do they have to make up cases? Only criminals are supposed to go to jail, you know." Ryan said that since reporters have revealed informants' identities and undercover locations, the reserve stings have stopped. He said the Sunrise Police Department will go back to what it always did -- fighting crime in Sunrise.

Fugitive Task Force Coke Deals!

Georgia -- A Clayton County Police officer is facing federal charges for allegedly scheming with a drug dealer to sell stolen cocaine, court officials said. Nine-year officer Dwayne A. Penn is accused of working with a drug dealer to plan and conduct a fake narcotics arrest, and then sell the seized the drugs later , according to court records. Penn was arrested Wednesday after an FBI investigation and sting. On Thursday, during Penn’s first appearance in federal court, Judge Alan J. Baverman said he is being held on charges of drug possession with intent to distribute, attempting to possess drugs for distribution, attempting to obstruct and affect commerce by unlawfully obtaining a controlled substance, and using a firearm in the furtherance of a drug trafficking crime. Federal authorities said that a confidential FBI informant who was wearing a secret wire, helped record phone conversations and face-to-face meetings between Penn and Adrian Demetric Austin, who is accused of being a drug dealer. The authorities said the informant told Austin and Penn that he would meet a cocaine source Wednesday morning to buy 6 kilograms of cocaine. The plan called for the three men to divide six bricks of cocaine evenly amongst themselves, prosecutors said. Penn would lie in wait in his Clayton County Police squad car, then pull up to make the arrest within sight of the supplier, the informant said. “I can put the lights on,” Penn told the informant, according to a federal arrest warrant affidavit. “I can put you in handcuffs.” Austin was to be at the scene as well, although his role in the plan was unclear. With FBI and DEA agents watching, according to the federal affidavit, Penn arrived around 10:40 a.m. on Wednesday at 4500 Memorial Drive in DeKalb County and began checking license plates against a national crime information database. Around 11:30 a.m., the informant and the supplier arrived, and the pair made their deal, the affidavit said. Penn rushed up, exited his car wearing a bulletproof vest labeled “Police,” and pointed his handgun at the informant, ordering the informant to the ground, prosecutors said. The supplier fled, prosecutors said. Penn put the informant in the back of the police car and retrieved four of the six bricks he believed to be cocaine from the informant’s car, the affidavit said. Then Penn put the four bricks into the trunk of the police car and let the informant go, shouting, “get out of here” as the informant fled, the affidavit said. Penn drove away, and federal agents arrested him and Austin separately, prosecutors said Thursday. Penn, who has been with the Clayton County Police since 2004, was assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force at the time of his arrest. Penn has been placed on unpaid leave, pending an internal investigation, according to Gary Syblis, Clayton police public information officer. He survived a gunshot wound to the face during his first year as a policeman, according to Channel 2 Action News. Penn will remain in federal custody pending a probable cause hearing scheduled for Wednesday at 11:30 a.m.

MOBILE, Alabama – A federal judge Thursday agreed to let a former Prichard police officer out of jail while a grand jury considers allegations that he helped deal drugs while he was on the force. Edmond Kennies Burke, 33, of Mobile, has been in federal custody since Homeland Security Investigations agents picked up the local drug charges earlier this month. U.S. Magistrate Judge Sonja Bivins, who earlier this week found probable cause to send the case to a federal grand jury, approved the recommendation of the Office of Pretrial Services that Burke be released from jail. She granted a request by the U.S. Attorney’s Office that Burke be required to wear an electronic monitoring device. “The conditions here appear to address the government’s concerns,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Gloria Bedwell said. Defense attorney Jeff Deen expressed concerns that his client would not be able to afford the cost of electronic monitoring. “He’s not going to have a job if he gets out,” he said, suggesting that it is unlikely that the Prichard Police Department would rehire him. Bivins said Burke will be under house arrest. She said she would leave it up to a pretrial services officer to allow exceptions if Burke finds a job. Law enforcement authorities allege that Burke used his badge to deflect police attention while he transported cocaine in his squad car. Authorities said Mobile County sheriff’s deputies arrested Burke and Raymond “Roc” Williams during a sting in which they went to Grand Bay thinking they would pick up 5 kilograms of cocaine from a drug supplier.

Fugitive of the Year!

Posted: 09/09/2011 BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Fugitive David Britto may be out of reach of American authorities forever. This city's former Police Officer of the Year was under house arrest, awaiting trial on drug trafficking charges, when he cut the electronic monitoring bracelet from his ankle Aug. 24 and hopped on a plane in Miami, bound for his native country, Brazil , according to court documents filed Wednesday. Brazil's constitution prohibits the extradition of Brazilian nationals. "Basically he's gone unless the Brazilian government, through political pressure, allows U.S. agents to pick him up," said attorney David Rowe, an adjunct law professor at the University of Miami and an extradition expert. Britto, 28, appears to have successfully gambled on a high-stakes escape, rather than risk facing years in prison. He is to stand trial beginning Tuesday. The daring run, however, raises questions about how he pulled it off and who, if anyone, helped him. On Thursday, the U.S. Marshals Service, which is spearheading the hunt for Britto, said federal agents are looking at every possible way of getting Britto back to Miami, where he faces one count of conspiring to possess and traffic 500 grams of methamphetamine. "We're still pursuing him," Marshals Service spokesman Barry Golden said. "He's one of the big cases that are on the top of our list … We're still tracking down every lead. We're trying to get him back into custody at all costs."
Attempts to get Britto back are sure to be challenging, if not downright impossible. A 1964 treaty between the United States and Brazil allows for the extradition of anyone accused or convicted of a crime carrying a sentence of a year or more. But in 1988, Brazil amended its constitution, expressly stating that "no Brazilian shall be extradited." People born elsewhere who become Brazilian citizens, however, can be handed over if they're charged with certain drug-related crimes. Foreigners who find safe harbor in Brazil and are accused of political crimes elsewhere are not extradited. The strict policy has strained Brazil's diplomatic relations. Earlier this summer Italy denounced Brazil for refusing to turn over political refugee Cesare Battisti, a former Italian militant, convicted in absentia of killing four people in the 1970s. Meanwhile, Brazil's refusal to extradite an Ohio woman, Claudia Hoerig, charged in the 2007 murder of her husband, has outraged an Ohio congressman. U.S. Rep. Timothy Ryan, a Democrat, introduced legislation in June to withhold $14 million a year in aid to Brazil until it reverses its ban on extraditing nationals. The bill is in a House committee. Ryan has gone so far as to post an ever-changing clock on his website, showing the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds that Hoerig "has escaped justice." On Thursday, it registered 1,641 days. "It's been a nightmare experience on our end up here," Trumbull County, Ohio, Prosecuting Attorney Dennis Wilkins said of efforts to extradite Hoerig. "I've dealt with President [George W.] Bush, Condoleezza Rice, the attorney general and now with [President Barack] Obama and Hillary Clinton, and we've not gotten satisfactory action." In Florida, the tamper alert on Britto's ankle bracelet went off the night of Aug. 24, notifying a federal probation officer, according to court records. But U.S. Marshals were not told until the next morning. Only then was a warrant was issued for his arrest, authorities said. That gave Britto a window of time to escape. "You cannot respond the next morning. That's a major security breach," said Rowe, the University of Miami law professor. Court documents say Britto, who speaks Portuguese, boarded a plane Aug. 24 in Miami bound for Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. It is unclear what documentation he used to board the international flight. As a standard condition of bond, Britto had to relinquish "all passports and travel documents" to the Pretrial Services Office. "Mr. Britto's Brazilian passport was revoked as a standard condition of release by the court," said Laura Sweeney, a Justice Department spokeswoman in Washington. Britto was free on a $100,000 bond. He and his mother signed for half the bond and the other half was guaranteed by a bail bonds company in Miami. Britto may be able to live out his days in Brazil, but he likely is landlocked, said Douglas McNabb, whose Washington, D.C., firm specializes in international extradition law. Federal authorities likely will file a lifetime "red notice" with Interpol's 188 member countries that will trigger Britto's arrest if he leaves Brazil. "He may leave Brazil a month from now or 30 years from now and go to Costa Rica," McNabb said. "And when he goes through customs, his red notice [shows up]." That's what happened to director Roman Polanski, who was arrested in 2009 in Switzerland after being wanted by the United States since 1978 on a statutory-rape conviction. He hid in France, avoiding extradition countries, until he was captured. Polanski was freed by Swiss authorities on a legal technicality the following year. It's unknown if someone helped Britto reach Brazil. According to his website he was born in Brazil and moved to Queens, N.Y., when he was 7. He joined the Boynton Beach police in 2006. The Police Department still has an open internal investigation into Britto's escape, but he's likely to be fired soon, police said Thursday.

Brothers in Drugs!

Published: Thursday, August 25th 2011, 4:00 AM EDT The feds have charged a Brooklyn firefighter with acting as the "muscle guy" for a home delivery cocaine service, the Daily News has learned. Anthony Cilento, assigned to Ladder 166 in Coney Island, is the second civil servant charged with working for the drug ring; a retired NYPD cop was busted in May. Cilento, whose nickname is "December," dropped out of the crew in 2009 when he entered the Fire Department Academy, according to a criminal complaint filed in Brooklyn Federal Court. "He wanted to turn his life around," said a source familiar with the case. But his alleged past caught up with him after three snitches pleaded guilty to drug conspiracy charges and fingered him to the feds. The former ringleader of the service claimed that from 2002 to 2009, Cilento was deeply involved in various aspects of the operation - including violence. The drugs-on-demand service arranged the daily delivery of cocaine to customers in southwestern Brooklyn, FBI agent Samantha Bell said in court papers. Cilento took drug orders over the phone, allowed his home in Brooklyn to be used to store drugs, bagged bulk amounts of cocaine into smaller quantities for sale, met with suppliers and accompanied sellers on deliveries, according to court papers. Another informant claims Cilento committed several assaults, which included breaking a crew member's nose for stealing cocaine and cracking another worker over the arm with a paintball gun. The informant also told the FBI that Cilento bought drugs for his own use, and the third snitch said Cilento stopped buying coke "when he began training for the FDNY," the complaint states. All firefighter applicants are screened for drug use, so Cilento was apparently clean while going through that process. Cilento, 27, is being held without bail and is suspended without pay. His lawyer did not return a call. Co-defendant John Avvento, who retired from the NYPD with a disability pension, has been charged with riding shotgun with the drug sellers in case they were stopped by cops, and with providing police gear used during a home-invasion robbery.

NYPD: Emmanuel Tavarez!

Archive: April 26, 2011
On the eve of jury selection for his trial in Brooklyn Federal Court, an eight-year veteran of the NYPD decided to plead guilty to participating in a violent robbery crew that dressed as cops to steal from drug dealers. Emmanuel Tavarez, 31 (pictured above, center) and his crew, which included family members, were responsible for more than 100 armed robberies of narcotics traffickers that netted more than 250 kilograms of cocaine and $1 million in drug proceeds over the course of a decade. According to the U.S. Attorney's office, Tavarez used his police badge and falsified search warrants to stage searches and seizures of narcotics traffickers. He also used his status as a transit officer to obtain NYPD raid jackets and other NYPD equipment for the crew so they looked like authentic police officers. The crew would locate drug dealers' stashes in New York, Philadelphia, and Bridgeport, Conn., then stage raids as if they were narcotics officers, keeping the cash and reselling the drugs later. Tavarez, whose "significant other" just gave birth to his child, faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for robbery conspiracy, conspiracy to distribute heroin and cocaine, and the use of a firearm during the raids. His attorney cited the "overwhelming" quantity of evidence against his client in explaining the guilty plea, but tells sources, “For all intents and purposes he was a fine officer.


Posted: 12/06/2012 07:26:03 AM PST Updated: 12/06/2012 09:66:52 PM PST OAKLAND, CA -- The ousted head of an elite Contra Costa County vice squad pleaded guilty to five felonies in federal court Wednesday, nearly two years after his state Department of Justice colleagues caught him selling stolen drug evidence. Former Central Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement (CNET) Cmdr. Norman Wielsch, 51, of Antioch (pictured left) kissed his father before he stood in front of the judge and admitted to selling drugs that had been seized by CNET agents, robbing prostitutes and making phony arrests. He was taken into custody after, in a barely audible tone, he said he was "guilty" of crimes dating back to 2009. His plea was part of a deal he made with federal prosecutors. Wielsch, a law enforcement officer for 25 years, apologized for the shame he brought to the badge, and particularly the members of CNET, a Department of Justice operation that was shut down after Wielsch's arrest. "We (at CNET) did a lot a lot of good things before I did all these stupid things," Wielsch said. "Most of all, I want to say sorry to my dad, who I let down and brought disgrace to my family name," he said, breaking down in tears. "I'm very sorry." Wielsch pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute marijuana and methamphetamine, theft from programs receiving government funds, robbery, and two counts of conspiracy against civil rights. Another six felony charges were dismissed as part of the plea deal. Describing to the judge how he and former Concord private investigator Christopher Butler would make dates with prostitutes they found on the Internet and then rob them, Wielsch stopped himself and said, "I'm sorry, I really can't believe we did this." Butler and Wielsch, friends since they were on the Antioch police force together in the 1990s, were arrested in a state Department of Justice sting in February 2011, prompting a countywide police-corruption probe that expanded to include allegations that the pair ran a Pleasant Hill brothel and led to more arrests. A judge will decide how much prison time Wielsch receives at his sentencing hearing scheduled for Feb. 19. The federal sentencing guidelines call for between 14 and 17.5 years in federal prison. Wielsch's attorney says he's forbidden from arguing for fewer than 10 years. Wielsch's attorney said Wednesday that it's unclear why Wielsch "went bad" after serving "the public honorably for a number of years." "I don't think even Norm knows the answer to that," Cardoza said. Former CNET agent and San Ramon police officer Louis Lombardi, 40, of Discovery Bay, pleaded guilty to stealing drugs in the case and was sentenced in January to three years. Former Danville officer Stephen Tanabe, 48, of Alamo, is awaiting trial on charges that he conspired with Butler to set up the estranged husbands of Butler's P.I. firm clients for DUI arrests. San Ramon attorney Mary Nolan, of Oakland, is among the defendants being sued in civil court for the so-called Dirty DUI scheme. She is also awaiting trial on charges that she and Butler used eavesdropping equipment on her clients' estranged spouses. Butler, 51, of Concord, also took a plea deal and was sentenced in September to eight years in federal prison. His attorney said Butler was motivated by a need for cash when his business suffered at the expense of his failed attempt to launch his own reality TV show.

Federal Bond!

Posted: 08/22/2011 11:59:21 AM PDT Updated: 08/22/2011 1:50:23 PM PDT OAKLAND, CA -- The former head of a Contra Costa drug task force pleaded not guilty in federal court this morning to an array of corruption charges, and is expected to be released on bond -- if he allays prosecutors' concerns he is a suicide risk. A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted Norman Wielsch, 50, of Antioch, Calif., and Christopher Butler of Concord, Calif., on Aug. 8, 2011, for federal narcotics offenses, civil rights violations, and extortion. Wielsch (pictured above, left) of Antioch appeared in an Oakland courthouse Monday, handcuffed and dressed in the red jail garb that, for their own safety, marks former peace officers separated from the general population at Alameda County Jail. He fought back tears as Federal Magistrate Laurel Beeler read the charges against him, which include allegations the ousted drug agent -- who routinely oversaw some of Contra Costa County's biggest narcotics busts -- resold methamphetamine and marijuana taken from police evidence. Collectively, the charges carry maximum penalties of life imprisonment and millions in fines and restitution. "Yes, your honor" and "Yes, ma'am" were the only words Wielsch uttered during the hearing as he entered his not-guilty plea and answered Beeler's questions. Wielsch's father Ernest attended with the intent to post $50,000 of a $100,000 surety bond to free Wielsch from custody Monday. Nearly two dozen of Wielsch's family and friends packed the courtroom and watched him get led into the courtroom by a U.S. Marshal, and the sight of them drew a whimper from the defendant, who struggled with fits of emotion throughout the hearing. Federal prosecutor John Hemann negotiated with Wielsch's attorney over the conditions of his release, the major sticking point concerns that Wielsch might be suicidal. Wielsch has been receiving counseling since he was taken into federal custody last week along with co-defendant Christopher Butler, 50, a former Concord private investigator. "The suicide concern is sufficiently grave that we would be opposed to release without an assessment," Hemann said in court. Beeler sympathized with Wielsch and tried to give him solace by urging him to think about his life once the federal case is over. For Wielsch to remain out of jail, prosecutors need by Thursday a psychological assessment contending Wielsch is not a risk to himself. His prospective release limits him to three federal districts in the state: Northern, which encompasses the Bay Area; Eastern, so that he can care for a family member in San Joaquin County; and Southern, so that he can accompany relatives for medical treatment in Southern California. The maximum statutory penalties for each count are as follows, although any sentence imposed by the court following conviction would take into consideration the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and the federal statute governing imposition of a sentence, 18 U.S.C. § 3553: Count 1 - Narcotics Conspiracy, 21 U.S.C. § 846 (Wielsch and Butler) •» Life imprisonment (10 year mandatory minimum) •» Five years supervised release •» $10,000,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Count 2 - Methamphetamine Distribution, 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) (Wielsch and Butler) •» Life imprisonment (10 year mandatory minimum) •» Five years supervised release •» $10,000,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Count 3 - Methamphetamine Distribution, 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) (Butler) •» Life imprisonment (10 year mandatory minimum) •» Five years supervised release •» $10,000,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Counts 4 through 9 - Marijuana Distribution, 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) (Butler) •» Five years imprisonment (10 year mandatory minimum) •» Three years supervised release •» $10,000,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Counts 10 through 13 - Theft From Programs Receiving Federal Funds, 18 U.S.C. § 666(a)(1) (Wielsch) •» 10 years imprisonment •» Three years supervised release •» $250,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Count 14 & 16 - Civil Rights Conspiracy, 18 U.S.C. § 241 (Wielsch and Butler) •» Life imprisonment •» Five years supervised release •» $250,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Count 15 & 17 - Extortion, 18 U.S.C. § 1951 (Wielsch and Butler) •» 20 years imprisonment •» Five years supervised release •» $250,000 fine •» $100 special assessment Corrupt Justice™: We note the day is fast approaching where Norman will be the New Guy In Prison.

Federal Indictment!

August 16, 2011 - 01:49 PM PDT A former state narcotics investigator and a Concord private investigator at the center of a widening law enforcement scandal have been indicted by a federal grand jury on drug and corruption charges, authorities said Monday. Norman Wielsch, 50, a former state Department of Justice agent who led an antinarcotics task force in Contra Costa County, and Christopher Butler, 50, who worked as a private investigator, were named in a 17-count indictment that was unsealed Monday after FBI agents arrested Butler and Wielsch. Each is being held without bail in an Alameda County jail pending detention hearings. The two were accused of crimes including stealing marijuana and methamphetamine from police to sell, embezzling cash and opening a massage parlor in Pleasant Hill that served as a front for prostitution. The methamphetamine allegations could lead to a mandatory minimum term of 10 years in federal prison if the men are convicted. The indictment "brings dishonor to all the fine men and women in law enforcement who work hard, do the right thing and risk their lives every day protecting our communities," said U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag in San Francisco. Wielsch's (pictured above, left) attorney said, "It's nothing that we didn't expect. We knew what they were investigating." Butler's attorney did not return a call for comment. The grand jury indictment was the result of an investigation that Contra Costa prosecutors asked the FBI to take over earlier this summer. The men were already facing state drug charges, but the indictment represents the first time that the men were formally charged with running a place of prostitution. Both were charged with extortion under color of official right for allegedly setting up the parlor on Gregory Lane in Pleasant Hill and protecting the women who worked there in exchange for "weekly payments to Butler (pictured above, left) which Butler shared with Wielsch," the indictment said. The men were also charged with running phony sting operations by contacting suspected prostitutes through online ads, meeting them in hotels and then stealing their money and property, authorities said.

Dual Escorts!

August 4, 2011 Laredo, Texas - Former Laredo police officer Pedro Martinez III, 34, was sentenced August 4 to 6 ½ years in prison for helping a drug trafficker move and store cocaine. Martinez agreed to escort loads of cocaine in exchange for payment from undercover FBI and BATF agents he thought were smugglers and recruited fellow officer Orlando Hale to help out. He escorted three loads and Hale escorted two, with the pair receiving $1,000 for each load. The undercover agents also persuaded Martinez to lead them to a cocaine supplier, who has already pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges and awaits sentencing. Martinez testified against Hale when Hale took his case to trial last year. Hale lost and got 24 ½ years. Martinez pleaded to bribery charges.
Officer Jesus Hale
LAREDO, TX - The attorney defender of Orlando Jesus Hale said he has already started working on the appeal filed with the Circuit Court in the city of New Orleans, citing technical errors. "I think there are errors of time and to a witness who was improperly used, we expect the Court of Appeals will grant us the right and defeat this process, " he said. Hale, 28 years old, who worked for the Police Department as a patrolman, received the sentence of 295 months after appearing before Federal Judge Micaela Alvarez. The former law enforcement officer was accused of conspiring to distribute cocaine and escorting shipments between October 15, 2008 and November 30 of that year.
Apart from that he received another charge for using a service weapon while allegedly engaged in activities related to narcotics trafficking. Hale was subjected to a federal trial in September last year which also involved other law enforcement officer named Pedro Martinez, on charges of escorting drug shipments using police radios to monitor the movement of the police. The case was exposed when the operation involved a FBI undercover agent posing as a drug dealer. Hale allegedly helped to escort shipments of cocaine from south to north of the city using personal vehicles and police radios, receiving a thousand dollars for his help.

HPD Dope Bribe!

Guilty All Counts!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 HOUSTON (WCJB) -- A former Houston police officer has been convicted by a federal jury on corruption charges. U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson says 46-year-old Leslie Aikens (pictured below, left) of Houston was convicted Tuesday. The 19-year veteran of the Houston police had been charged with aiding and abetting possession of a controlled substance by providing an escort for drugs through the Houston area in his police vehicle. He was also charged with extortion for accepting a $2,000 bribe to provide the protection for the vehicle he believed to be transporting 7 kilograms of cocaine. The indictment was returned in June. Magidson says the jury found Aikens guilty on all counts he was charged with. Aikens faces up to life in prison. He's set to be sentenced Feb. 2, 2012. July 27, 2011 Texas -- A veteran Houston police sergeant was arrested Wednesday and charged with accepting a bribe to provide protection for a vehicle carrying several kilograms of cocaine, federal authorities announced. Houston Police Department Sgt. Leslie Aikens, 46 (pictured left) was charged with aiding and abetting the possession with the intent to distribute more than 5 kilograms of cocaine on or about March 10, U.S. Attorney's Office officials said. Aikens also was charged with accepting a $2,000 bribe to provide protection for a vehicle transporting 7 kilograms of cocaine. Aikens, who's worked for the department for nearly 19 years, has been relieved of duty with pay pending the outcome of an investigation by the department's internal affairs division, according to a statement by HPD Chief Charles McClelland: "As is customary with internal investigations, the Houston Police Department will make no further comments regarding this matter until the investigation(s) are completed," McClelland said in the statement. Houston Police Officer's Union Vice President Ray Hunt said its office is not aware of the matter and has not been contacted by Aikens for legal representation. He noted that requests from officers for legal representation are reviewed and if evidence of criminal activity is found, the union will not provide an attorney. He said HPOU represents officers acting only within the scope and course of their job. "Any criminal conduct is outside of the scope and course of your job as a Houston police officer," Hunt said. Aikens, who is assigned to the HPD Jail Division and was promoted to sergeant last year, was arrested after the unsealing of the June 22 indictment on Wednesday by officers with HPD Internal Affairs Division, Texas Rangers and FBI agents. He appeared before a federal judge Wednesday and was released on $50,000 bail. The drug offense charge carries a penalty of not less than 10 years or more than life imprisonment and a $10 million fine upon conviction. The extortion charge is punishable by up to 20 years incarceration without parole and a $250,000 fine.

Dishonorable Discharge!

Sunday, August 28th 2011, 4:25 PM PDT After a day-long manhunt, officials said they found an Army captain suspected of killing four people and wounding two cops in a late-night shootout, the media has reported. Before his body was found, The local media reported that Leonard John Egland, 37 (pictured above, center) was last seen early this morning on foot in Warwick Township, Pa. Egland was being sought in the deaths of his ex-wife, her boyfriend and her boyfriend's young son in Virginia. He was also being sought for the death of his mother-in-law in Buckingham. The media said Heckler had returned from his third tour of duty overseas last week. After the killings, Heckler drove his young daughter to a Quakertown, Pa. hospital where he tried to leave her and a note that hinted at suicide. "Presumably he had grabbed his daughter from his ex-wife when he killed her," Heckler told the paper. At the hospital, "he asks to have her looked at, leaves a note and starts walking out." The girl then reportedly told hospital workers that "grandmom went to heaven." Heckler took off after a hospital orderly confronted him. While on the run, he fired at police with a semi-automatic rifle, injuring two officers. Officials warned earlier Sunday that he is armed and very dangerous. "The question is, does he have other people on his list?" Heckler told the Inquirer. "If he drove up here to assassinate his mother-in-law, are there other targets?" By Sunday afternoon, Warwick Township Deputy Police Chief Mark Goldberg told local media sources that SWAT operations had ceased. "We've been unable to locate him, we don't know where he is," Goldberg told the station. "Up until now, we've been telling people, 'Please stay in your houses, keep your houses secure and locked, lock your cars.' At this point, I would say to people to use common senses in using your own security. ... You can't reasonably lock yourselves in your home forever."

Depraved Indifference!

August 26, 2011 VIENNA, AUSTRIA - An Austrian court ordered custody Friday for an 80-year-old man suspected of raping his two daughters over 41 years, keeping them virtually locked up in his house. The man will be held in detention until at least September 9 as police probe charges of rape, assault and abuse of minors or defenceless persons, the court in Ried im Innkreis said in a statement. The man, whose name was withheld, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of sexually and physically abusing his two daughters, now aged 53 and 45, from 1970 to May this year. The women are believed to have some mental handicaps, according to police, who said their father had prevented them having any social contact outside the home and regularly threatened them with weapons and even death. The suspect denies the accusations, the court said. The case came to light in early May after a social worker, called by the women after their father was injured and incapacitated, notified a social worker. The women had told investigators that their mother, who died in 2008, was also regularly abused by her husband. The case eerily brings to mind an earlier Austrian incest story that made headlines worldwide in 2008 – that of Josef Fritzl, who locked his daughter in a cellar for 24 years and fathered seven children with her, one of whom died. Fritzl was sentenced to life in prison in March 2009. In the latest case, the alleged abuse did not appear to have led to any children, prosecutor Alois Ebner told the Austria Press Agency. March 19, 2009: An Austrian court sentenced Josef Fritzl to life in prison for allowing one of the children he fathered with his imprisoned daughter to die without medical attention. The guilty verdict and sentence, which he will serve in a secure psychiatric facility, brought to a close a sensational tale of incest in a homemade basement dungeon that horrified but riveted the world. The two women, who were allegedly also abused by a friend of their father’s when they were children, were receiving psychological care. They were also the subject of an investigation for failing to assist an injured person, as they waited two days to inform the authorities that their father was hurt. He fell when his older daughter, whom he was allegedly attempting to rape, pushed him away. Ebner said this was clearly a case of self-defence. “The women should be seen first as victims, and not as perpetrators,” he insisted. The suspect had an otherwise clean criminal record, the prosecutor said. He had been staying in a nursing home in Braunau after a spell in hospital after his fall.

[[T]he attack was] "an abhorrent act of terror and barbarism," that requires, "all of us to persevere in the fight against these unscrupulous criminal bands." -- President Felipe Calderon, Mexico
A blood-soaked "night of sadness" befell Mexico Thursday as the nation's violence-weary populace grappled with its latest spate of drug-cartel-related mayhem. This time, two dozen armed, profanity-shouting gunmen burst into the Casino Royale in Monterrey, doused the gambling hall with gasoline as stunned patrons looked on - and then set the building ablaze. Fifty-three died and more were injured in the casino-turned-deathtrap in the heart of the northern Mexican town. However, authorities warned that the death toll could rise, as the gruesome, body-littered scene was still being addressed. "This is a night of sadness for Mexico,"federal security spokesman Alejandro Poire said in a televised address after the attack. "These unspeakable acts of terror will not go unpunished." President Felipe Calderon tried to rally his shaken countrymen by tweeting that the attack was, "an abhorrent act of terror and barbarism," that requires, "all of us to persevere in the fight against these unscrupulous criminal bands." Media sources reported that the attackers burst into the casino without warning, told the customers and employees to get out of the building with shouts and profanities. But many terrified customers and employees fled further inside the doomed casino, where they died trapped amid the flames and thick smoke that soon billowed out of the building. It was the second time in three months that the Casino Royale was targeted. Gunmen struck it and three other casinos on May 25, when the gunmen sprayed the Casino Royale with bullets, but no was reported injured in that attack. Last month, gunmen killed 20 people at a bar in Monterrey. The attackers sprayed the bar with rounds from assault rifles, and police later found bags of drugs at the bar. Monterrey has seen bloody turf battles between the Zetas and Gulf cartels in recent months. Once Mexico's symbol of development and prosperity, the city is seeing this year's drug-related murders on a pace to double last year's and triple those of the year before.

Innocent, But State Extorts!

Posted: 08/19/2011 Proof: The State Judicial System is Corrupt! In July 2007, new forensic evidence was presented in the case [of People of the State of Arkansas v. Damien W. Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr.] including evidence that none of the DNA collected at the crime scene matched the defendants, but did match Terry Hobbs, the stepfather of one of the victims, as well as a friend of Hobbs' whom he had been with on the day of the murders. The status report jointly issued by the State and the Defense team on July 17, 2007 states, "Although most of the genetic material recovered from the scene was attributable to the victims of the offenses, some of it cannot be attributed to either the victims or the defendants." On October 29, 2007, the defense filed a Second Amended Writ of Habeas Corpus, outlining the new evidence.
A Cry for Innocence
Johnny Depp, others push to prove the innocence of trio of convicted killers known as the West Memphis 3. "48 Hours Mystery" correspondent Erin Moriarty reports. JONESBORO, Ark. — Three men convicted of killing three 8-year-old boys in a notorious 1993 murder case were freed from jail on Friday, after a complicated legal maneuver that allowed them to maintain their innocence while acknowledging that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict them.
A district court judge declared that the three men — Damien W. Echols, 36, Jason Baldwin, 34, and Jessie Misskelley Jr., 36, known as the West Memphis Three — who have been in prison since their arrest in 1993, had served the time for their crime. The judge also levied a 10-year suspended sentence on each of the men. With his release Friday, Mr. Echols became the highest-profile death row inmate to be released in recent memory. The agreement, known as an Alford plea, does not result in a full exoneration; some of the convictions stand, though the men did not admit guilt. The deal came five months before a scheduled hearing was to be held to determine whether the men should be granted a new trial in light of DNA evidence that surfaced in the past few years. None of their DNA has been found in tests of evidence at the scene. The Arkansas Supreme Court ordered the new hearing in November, giving new life to efforts to exonerate the three men.
In May 1993, the bodies of the boys, Christopher Byers, Steve Branch and James Michael Moore, were found in a drainage ditch in a wooded area of West Memphis, Ark., called Robin Hood Hills. The bodies appeared to have been mutilated (each had their penis severed, or bitten off) their hands tied to their feet. Photo Caption: (Top - Left to Right) Stevie Branch, Christopher Byers and James Michael Moore were the fatalities of the Robin Hood Hills murders – all of them 8-year-old boys. (Bottom - Left to Right) Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin. The grotesque nature of the murders led to a theory about satanic cult activity. Investigators focused their attention on Mr. Echols, at the time a troubled yet gifted teenager who practiced Wicca, a rarity in the town of West Memphis. Efforts to learn more about him, spearheaded by a single mother cooperating with the police, led to Mr. Misskelley, a passing acquaintance of Mr. Echols, who is borderline mentally retarded. After a nearly 12-hour interrogation by the police, Mr. Misskelley confessed to the murders and implicated Mr. Echols and Mr. Baldwin, though his confession diverged in significant details with the facts of the crime known by the police. Corrupt Justice™: Under the agreement set forth above, the real killer(s) Terry Hobbs, walks free, as he has since 1993.


August 17, 2011 Photo Caption: Jimmy Lee of the Contra Costa County Sheriff's office holds up a copy of Phillip Garrido, right, taken after an arrest in Reno, Nev., alongside a sketch of a man believed to have kidnapped Michaela Garecht, in 1988, outside Garrido's home in unicorporated Antioch, Calif., Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2009. Police investigating two child abductions in the 1980s searched the Northern California home of a man charged with kidnapping a girl and holding her captive for 18 years. The Hayward and Dublin police departments went through Phillip Garrido's Antioch property and a site next door on Tuesday, seeking evidence in the disappearances of Michaela Garecht in 1988 and Ilene Mischeloff in 1989, authorities said. HAYWARD, CA -- Nearly two years after Hayward police mounted a major search of the property near Antioch belonging to Phillip and Nancy Garrido in hopes of finding clues related to the disappearance of Michaela Garecht, investigators finally talked to the couple, who maintained their innocence. Investigators spoke with each of the Garridos for more than two hours last week. "It was nothing earth-shattering," Sgt. Corey Quinn said. "Both denied having anything to do with Michaela's disappearance." Philip Garrido, a twice-convicted kidnapper and rapist, previously told El Dorado County investigators that while he is responsible for at least three more abductions and dozens of date rapes, he had nothing to do with the high-profile abduction of 9-year-old Michaela in 1988. Hayward investigators remain interested, however, and plan to look at evidence taken from the Garridos' compound in the next week and to conduct more interviews with the pair. Shortly after Jaycee Dugard surfaced in August 2009, police from various agencies converged on the Garridos' compound, where Dugard was held for 18 years. Hayward police conducted what was called the most extensive search in the history of the department because of strong similarities to the 1988 disappearance of Michaela, snatched from a Hayward grocery store's parking lot. Police camped out on the Garridos' property for a week, using cadaver dogs and ground-penetrating radar, hauling trash out by the truckload while searching for evidence that could connect the couple to Michaela's disappearance. Nothing was found. At the time, Hayward police wanted to speak to the Garridos, but a judge ruled that law enforcement agencies not involved with Dugard's case would have to wait until after the trial. That ended in June when Phillip Garrido, 60 (pictured left) received a sentence of 431 years to life in prison, while Nancy Garrido, 55 (pictured left) was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison, all in accordance with their guilty pleas made in April. Quinn said Hayward investigators will meet with El Dorado County inspectors next week to "go over more things," before conducting more interviews with the Garridos. "They have so much stuff up there, we need to decipher what we think is of interest or not," Quinn said. "I can only imagine what they have -- all of Jaycee Dugard's life, and Garrido's past."

Poetic Justice: Hung Jury!

August 23, 2011 TOLEDO, Ohio -- Jurors deadlocked Tuesday on a lone murder charge against a man accused of snatching a teen on her way home from school in 1967 and holding her captive in his basement before killing her and dumping her body in Michigan. The jury told a judge it could not reach a unanimous verdict needed to convict or acquit Robert Bowman after about 12 hours of deliberations over two days. Bowman is charged in the killing that stumped investigators over four decades even after his ex-wife had told them she had found the girl alive and tied up in the basement. Assistant Lucas County prosecutor Tim Braun said he could not discuss whether the office will seek another trial, citing a gag order in the case.
Bowman, now 75, sexually assaulted 14-year-old Eileen Adams, prosecutors said, before dumping her body in southern Michigan six weeks after she disappeared. She had been tied up with telephone and drapery cords and a nail had been driven into her head. Adams, a high school freshman, was either strangled or died from a blow to the head that cracked her skull, prosecutors said. Bowman had been a successful businessman before disappearing in the 1980s into a life on the streets in Florida and California. He faced up to life in prison if convicted. Detectives first tried to link him to the slaying in the early `80s, but they said they didn't have enough evidence to bring charges until a cold case squad reopened the investigation five years ago. New DNA evidence, they said, connected Bowman with the killing, and police arrested him near Palm Springs, Calif., in 2008. His former wife was a key witness in the trial, testifying that she found Adams naked in their fruit cellar after the girl disappeared just before Christmas 1967. Margaret Bowman said she was hanging laundry when she thought she heard rats in the cellar. She said she opened a wooden door and saw a girl with her arms outstretched and bound, "hanging like Jesus." She said she ran upstairs and her husband confronted her, saying he had to kill the girl. He also threatened to kill his wife and their newborn daughter if she told anyone, she said. That same night, she testified, Bowman made her go with him as he dumped the body just north of Toledo, across the state line in Michigan. The Defense attorney for Bowman tried to cast doubt on Margaret Bowman's account. He said she waited 14 years to tell her story to police and that she stayed with Bowman for 11 years and moved with him to three different states before leaving when his business failed. Even after she went to detectives in 1981, they still didn't charge Bowman, Rost said during his closing arguments. "They didn't believe her enough," he said. He also said prosecutors couldn't say where or when the girl died and that the DNA evidence did not conclusively point to Bowman. "The case comes down to, do you believe what Margaret Bowman testified?" prosecutor Chris Anderson told jurors. Bowman had owned a construction company in Ohio and later a business that made high-end purses in Florida and sold them in Nieman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue stores. But when police detectives tracked him down in Florida in 1982, he was living in an abandoned restaurant, wearing a tattered shirt and jeans and a scruffy beard. Hanging from the restaurant ceiling were three dolls, some with their feet bound with string. A nail had been driven into the head of two dolls - eerily similar to how a hunter had found the body of Adams. Bowman talked with police, but he then dropped out of sight. Cold case investigators in 2006 discovered that DNA evidence from semen on the victim's thermal underwear linked Bowman to the crime, they said. Police soon after charged Bowman even though they had no idea where he was living or even if he was still alive. He was profiled on the "America's Most Wanted" and police in Southern California arrested him when he was spotted riding a bicycle. His attorney said he had been living under a tarp in the desert. Posted: 08/15/2011 09:21:50 AM PDT Updated: 08/15/2011 01:17:22 PM PDT TOLEDO, Ohio — The ex-wife of a man accused of killing a schoolgirl in 1967 recounted at his trial Monday that she was hanging baby clothes in their basement four decades ago when she heard muffled sounds coming from a fruit cellar. She opened a wooden door, she said, and was stunned to find a young girl naked and suspended by ropes. "Hanging like Jesus," Margaret Bowman told jurors. Robert Bowman, now 75, is charged with murder in the death of 14-year-old Eileen Adams, who vanished on her way home from school. Investigators think Bowman kidnapped her, held her captive in his basement for as long as two weeks and then killed her. Detectives first tried to link him to the slaying in the early 1980s, but they didn't have enough evidence to bring charges until a cold case squad reopened the investigation five years ago. New DNA evidence, they said, connected Bowman with the killing, and police arrested him near Palm Springs, Calif., in 2008. Bowman has pleaded not guilty and faces life in prison if he's convicted. Margaret Bowman, one of the key witnesses against him, offered a chilling account Monday of discovering the girl after hearing what she thought were rats in the cellar. "What else would be in a basement?" she said. Instead, she said she found a girl with her arms outstretched and bound, tape covering her mouth. Bowman said she knew the girl was alive because, "I looked in her eyes." "I was horrified, I was screaming, I was shaking," she said. "I didn't know what to think." She said she ran upstairs and that her husband confronted her, saying that she was getting into his business and that he now had to kill the girl. He also threatened to kill his wife and their newborn daughter if she told anyone, she said. Bowman said she never went in the basement again. "That was enough," she said. That same night, she testified, Bowman made her go with him as he dumped the body just north of Toledo, across the state line in Michigan. The body was found six weeks after Adams disappeared. Bowman said that at some point she discovered school books on a bench or a table in the kitchen. She said she opened one of the books and saw the name Eileen Adams written inside. The couple moved several times, including stops in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami. Bowman said she didn't go to police until 1981, after she left her husband and returned to Toledo. Detectives tracked Bowman down in Florida in 1982. Once a successful businessman who sold high-end handbags in Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue stores, he was living in an abandoned restaurant near Miami, wearing a tattered shirt and jeans and a scruffy beard. They talked with him about the girl's death but didn't charge him. Three more decades passed until cold-case detectives took DNA samples from Bowman's ex-wife and their daughter and compared them with DNA found on Adams' clothing. During the trial's opening statements, Bowman's defense attorney told jurors that Margaret Bowman didn't go to police willingly years ago. "You'll have to decide how believable she is," he said. On Monday, however, he didn't press Bowman about why it took her 14 years to go to police.

Mentally Challenged!

Tuesday, August 16, 2011
The body of a missing 3-year-old girl in Missouri, believed to have been suffocated by a neighbor, has been found, authorities said Wednesday. The remains of Breeann Rodriguez were discovered by an officer of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Patrol, according to a joint statement released by local police and the prosecutor's office. Rodriguez' body was located near the floodway ditches northeast of Hornersville, about eight miles from her home in Senath. August 15, 2011 Senath, Missouri (WCJB) -- A 43-year-old Missouri man told police that he suffocated his 3-year-old neighbor with a plastic bag, then stuffed her body in the same bag and tossed her from a highway, according to a court document. Shawn Morgan (pictured left) of Senath has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Breeann Rodriguez (pictured above, center). The girl was last seen on August 6, riding her pink bicycle with her brother outside their home in Senath. While authorities have found her bike, authorities continued to search Monday for her body, Dunklin County Prosecuting Attorney Stephen Sokoloff said. Sokoloff added -- and the Dunklin County court clerk's office confirmed -- that Morgan does not yet have an attorney. His legal representation could be settled when he is arraigned in a Kennett, Missouri, court at 9 a.m. Tuesday, the prosecuting attorney said. According to a probable cause affidavit dated Saturday, police interviewed Morgan Friday at the police department in Kennett, a larger community about 10 miles northeast of Senath. The suspect said that he spotted the girl standing on a ladder by the pool in his backyard, in Breeann's neighborhood. He told police that he grabbed the girl and carried her inside his house. There, according to the affidavit, the man "suffocated the girl with a white plastic trash bag, by holding it over her face and mouth. "Morgan states that he felt like it took an hour for the girl to die," the document adds. It says Morgan told police he put the girl's body into the same trash bag, and then drove to Missouri's Highway 164 and got rid of the body by throwing it over a railing into a floodway ditch. After returning home, Morgan said, he then dismantled the girl's bike and dumped it into another, related waterway, the document says. A bicycle was recovered there and identified by Edgar Rodriguez as belonging to Breeann, his daughter. Police said Thursday that they had found two training wheels similar to those on the girl's bike. In addition to murder, Sokoloff said in a statement Saturday that Morgan is charged with armed criminal action and tampering with physical evidence. The suspect, who Sokoloff said had three children of his own, is being held at the Dunklin County Justice Center. The FBI, which earlier had a major role in the case, has passed off control of the investigation to local authorities following Morgan's arrest, FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu said. Meanwhile, the approximately 1,800 residents of Senath -- a city in southeast Missouri's "boot heel," about 90 miles north of Memphis, Tennessee -- are trying to come to grips with what happened. "Senath is a small town with the typical small-town concerns and values," Sokoloff told media sources. "This has been very, very disturbing to the community as a whole." August 13, 2011 Senath, Miss. - On Saturday, authorities announced that a Senath, Mo. man has been charged with the first-degree murder of missing toddler Breeann Rodriguez, 3. Dunklin County Prosecutor Stephen Sokoloff said Shawn Morgan, 43, has been charged with killing Breeann, armed criminal action and tampering with physical evidence, according to local media sources. The local news outlet reports that Morgan is not related to the Rodriguez family. Breeann disappeared on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2011, while she was riding her pink bicycle with training wheels in front of her home. Her bike also went missing. She was last seen wearing a pink top and pink and purple shorts. Authorities continue to search for Breeann's body and her bicycle in an undisclosed area, according to local media sources. Anyone with information regarding Breeann's case is urged to call St. Louis Regional CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS and remain anonymous.

“WebCam Killer”

Published: Monday, March 24, 2014 7:58AM EDT - Updated: Monday, March 24, 2014 9:47PM EDT
TORONTO, CA -- On the first day of the first-degree murder trial for Brian Dickson, the man accused in her death, the jury saw photographs of York University student Qian Liu's body, lying face down next to her bed, naked except for a nightgown and sweater, which were pulled up to her shoulders. Blood could be seen on the floor around her face. The jury was also shown a video, which depicted the last image her boyfriend in China saw on a webcam while chatting with his girlfriend in Toronto. The image was that of a man -- naked from the waist down -- turning off the computer moments after forcing his way into her apartment. Liu, 23, was found dead the next morning, April 15, 2011, in her off-campus basement apartment. Liu's parents, who came from China for the trial -- expected to last three weeks -- wiped tears from their eyes as the scene of their daughter's death was displayed on courtroom screens and an interpreter relayed to them the evidence. The accused had no visible reaction. Liu, who was enrolled in a preparatory course at York University, was chatting with her boyfriend Xian Meng that night using both a webcam and an instant messaging service. Some time after 1 a.m. there was a knock on her door, Crown attorney Christine Pirraglia said. Meng watched Liu open the door and briefly chat with a man before he tried to hug her, Pirraglia said. She tried unsuccessfully to get him out but he pushed his way in, shut the door behind him and pushed her in the direction of her bed, which was off camera, Pirraglia said. He heard Liu say both in English and Mandarin, "No. No," Pirraglia said. Meng then heard what sounded like two muffled bangs and he didn't hear Liu again, Pirraglia said. He then saw the man lock the door and turn off the lights. The next time the man appeared on screen -- he approached the computer and turned it off -- he was naked from the waist down, Pirraglia said. Meng sent frantic messages to Liu's other contacts on the instant messaging service and the following morning they woke up to the messages asking them to check on Liu, Pirraglia said. Her landlord was notified and he and two other tenants found her body and called 911. The operator told Soham Joshi -- one of the tenants -- to check to see if she was breathing. "There's blood everywhere," Joshi, can be heard saying on the 911 call. "When I first went in her room to touch her shoulders and turn her around the body was very stiff," Joshi testified Monday. "When I touched her body for the first time on the shoulders part and that's when the body moved an inch or two and that's when I saw the blood and I got more panicked." Dickson, who lived in the same building as Liu, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. His lawyer told the jury he is urging them to instead find Dickson guilty of manslaughter. "This is not a who did it case," The alwyer said in brief opening remarks. "This is a what happened case. The mechanism of Ms. Liu's death is very significant evidence in deciding whether the Crown has proven its case is murder beyond a reasonable doubt." Pathologists could not conclusively determine Liu's cause of death, though one is of the opinion it involved neck compression, Pirraglia said in her opening address. Forensic scientists, however, were able to determine that Dickson could not be excluded as the source of male DNA and semen on Liu's body to a high degree of probability, Pirraglia said. Their figures represent the probability that a randomly selected person unrelated to Dickson would share the same profile. That probability for male DNA found on Liu's breasts is an estimated 1 in 25 trillion, Pirraglia said. The probability for semen found on Liu's abdomen and groin area was calculated as 1 in 2.7 quintillion, she said. The degree of probability was also quite high for male DNA found under Liu's fingernails, and Liu couldn't be excluded as the source of blood found on a T-shirt in Dickson's room, Pirraglia said. When Dickson was interviewed by police he said he had been at a restaurant on the York University campus that night, leaving around 12:30 a.m. and going to sleep soon after, Pirraglia said. He told police he had met Liu a few times and had briefly been in her room twice. He said he had only ever touched her by shaking her hand and touching her on the shoulder, and that they had never been intimate and he did not kill her, Pirraglia said. The trial continues Tuesday. Thursday, April 21, 2011 Toronto, Canada -- Cops in Canada have arrested a man suspected of killing a Toronto college student whose boyfriend watched her being attacked via webcam. Toronto police nabbed Brian Dickson, 29, Wednesday afternoon and charged him with first-degree murder. Authorities didn't say how Dickson was connected to Qian Liu (pictured above, center) a student at York University from Beijing, or whether the two knew each other. The local media reported that a rejected suitor had been stalking Liu in the days before her death and that she and the stalker once lived together. A friend of Liu's also posted online that Dickson and Liu once lived together, but police wouldn't confirm that, the Star said. Liu arrived in Canada in September and had lived at the apartment where she died since January. Her grieving parents arrived in Toronto on Wednesday after a 13-hour flight from Beijing and briefly spoke to reporters. "We are very sad but we would like to take this opportunity to thank . . . everyone, the media, community and Chinese consulate staff," Jianhui Liu, the victim's father, said. "Thank you, but we are really tired." Police are still awaiting a coroner's report to determine the cause of death.
“‘Well I am going to jail for life.’” When he saw Brian Dickson’s picture (pictured above, center) on the news as being the alleged “WebCam Killer” this Toronto man just about fell off his bar stool. “I just had a beer with Brian Tuesday night and now he is charged with first-degree murder,” said the man, whose name is also Brian. “As soon as I saw the picture I said, ‘holy sh..’ I am in shock.” It was just four days after York University student Qian ‘Necole’ Liu, 23, was found dead — a struggle seen on webcam by her boyfriend in China — that this man said he was sitting with Dickson at the My Bar and Restaurant on Gerrard and Pape and it was “regular bar BS” banter going on between them. “He even offered to buy me a beer,” he said of the late Tuesday night encounter. Dickson was arrested the next day. “I remember Brian looking at two crack dealers over in the corner saying, “they are ruining this neighbourhood.” And then the conversation got strange. “He said to me, ‘Have you ever been to jail?’ He was asking me if I knew what it was like?” the bar patron said. “I told him I had once for five days. Then he said, ‘Well I am going to jail for life.’” He assumed Dickson, 29, who he thought worked as a retail salesman at the Eaton Centre, was just joking around. “I didn’t know what to think. It was strange but I didn’t draw any conclusions,” said the bar patron who also contacted police. Raymond, who is the bartender and owner, told me Dickson seemed to be slightly intoxicated but was coherent, respectful and polite. “I said to Brian (Dickson), ‘Have you been drinking elsewhere’ and he said he had,” said Raymond, adding he hadn’t seen the part-time actor in his bar in “two months”. Then the conversation switched over to the investigation at York University into the slaying of the Chinese exchange student. “Raymond said that police had a guy in mind and had looked in his apartment,” the bar patron said. It was after that, he said, that his bar chum’s demeanour changed from calm to nervous. “He looked at us and said, ‘Are you guys cops?’” he said. “He then said, ‘I have had enough of this,’ and then got up and left.” Dickson paid his bill with cash before he walked out, Raymond said. It was about 11 p.m. and he had been there for about an hour. Dickson’s parents’ home on Austin Ave., which police searched Thursday after receiving a warrant and removed a computer, is only about 300 metres south of the bar. His mom and his dad remained in the home throughout the evening, refusing to take calls. But earlier in the day expressed their horror of the events that had transpired. They looked shaken and disheveled. “It’s a very difficult time,” the father said. Police sources say this is not the first time they have had dealings with their son who is known to them. But neither his father or mother, who attended his first court appearance, would answer questions about friends saying only that their son frequented Internet dating sites and was involved in trying to recruit Asian women for a casting company. “We will not be commenting,” said his father. But there was plenty of commentary at My Bar and Restaurant Thursday night. He Had Everything! TORONTO - Brian Dickson looks nothing like the sort of man usually hauled into court on a charge of first-degree murder. He is 29, a former York University global politics student dressed well in a white, button-down shirt and jeans, and has the confident, chiselled good looks of the amateur actor, model and overachiever that he is. Or rather, was - until his arrest for the webcam murder of Qian Liu, the pretty Chinese exchange student who was studying at his alma mater and living in the same multi-unit townhouse. "He's had a whole whack of women, he was a devil, love 'em and leave 'em type. He was a total horn dog who got everything he wanted," says an acquaintance who didn't want to be named. "Maybe he was rebuffed and he wasn't used to it." The courtroom is filled with a crush of journalists intrigued by a story that has garnered international attention. A glimpse of the unlikely accused is all we get - as in all of these first appearances, it is practically over before it's even begun. Duty counsel asks and receives a publication ban on the brief proceedings. Dickson is remanded in custody until his next appearance April 26, nods at a white-haired couple at the back and is then led in handcuffs back to the prison he will no doubt call home for the near future. It is quite the mysterious fall for a young man who seemed to have it all. Dickson now stands accused of killing Liu, 23, on April 15 in a scenario that seems ripped from a horror movie. Known also as Necole, the York English student arrived here in September, living first on Haynes Ave. and then moving in January to a basement apartment on Aldwinckle Heights close to the York campus. At about 1 a.m. last Friday, Liu was chatting on her webcam with her boyfriend, Meng Xiaochao, in China when there was a knock on her door. From his helpless vantage point thousands of miles away, the Beijing man watched a white, tall, well-built intruder struggled with Liu when she resisted his attempts to embrace her. And then as she fought for her life, the screen suddenly went dark. Xiaochao desperately tried to reach friends in Toronto to come to Liu's aid. But it would be hours later when police came to her apartment and found her body, naked from the waist down. Her laptop was gone as were her webcam and her smartphone. To add to the mystery, there were no signs of obvious trauma or sexual assault. Police are now awaiting toxicology results to determine her cause of death. Also unanswered is how the foreign student may have crossed paths with her killer. Friends say Dickson was hoping to go to law school. His last known work history is from 2008 to 2009 when he interned as an executive assistant to the Atlantic Council of Canada, a non-governmental organization that promotes NATO. From his list of achievements on an effusive biography on the ACC website, Dickson is credited with being the co-founder of York's Model NATO and a two-year delegate on the university's Model UN. He was twice elected vice-president of the undergraduate political science council and also served as a councillor representing McLaughlin College in the York Federation of Students. Outside of York, his bio lists him as a longtime volunteer with a Pakistani aid organization that promotes literacy. An amateur actor, Dickson appeared in a number of local productions and won "promising newcomer award" three years ago for his part as "Gilbert" in a play based on Anne of Green Gables. He lists "Best Body Bootcamp" as one of his interests on his Facebook page and his bio notes he's a running instructor who "continually strives to get his parents to eat healthier food - a challenge which boggles his mind on a regular basis." Good looks, good education, a bevy of women, Dickson seemed to be set. "Friends are totally shocked because he was so normal," says the acquaintance. "Now the question is - what's the etiquette for unfriending someone on Facebook for being an accused murderer?"

Real DisOrder In the Court ~ 1998-2013!

Description: Cuyahoga County, Ohio -- (August 22, 2012) A highly-recruited Ohio basketball star collapsed in court after a judge sentenced him to prison for assaulting and kidnapping his girlfriend. Courtroom news cameras caught the shock on hot college prospect Tony Farmer's face as Cuyahoga County Court Judge Pamela Barker gave him three years for kidnapping in the April incident. "I got three years?" the stunned 18-year-old asked his lawyer. Barker continued with sentencing, slapping the 6-7, 220-pound star with two years for felonious assault and two years for robbery. Convinced he was headed to prison for seven years, Farmer collapsed in a heap at his lawyer's feet, as anguished supporters cried out and fled the courtroom.
