One angrily tells him to get his hand out of his pocket.

New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)

New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Nude Pic Patrols!

Posted: Tuesday, January 27, 2015 ~ Updated: 11:12 PM PST, Monday, February 8, 2015

MARTINEZ, Calif. (WCJB) -- Former Officer Sean Harrington, 35, admitted to stealing racy cellphone photos from two women after arresting them. He also admitted to forwarding them to his own phone and other officers.The disgraced California Highway Patrol officer pleaded no contest to charges against him on Tuesday in Contra Costa County. With his plea, Harrington was sentenced to three years of probation but no jail time. He will not go to jail but he will have two felony convictions on his record. The felony convictions will keep him out of law enforcement.

Harrington was charged in two cases but prosecutors say he admitted stealing photos on four to six occasions in the past few years. As part of his sentence, Harrington must attend, and participate as a speaker, in Community Violence Solutions class. "Which includes not only having to educate himself about the crime he committed but helping to educate others about the crime he committed, which I think is a lot better sentence than a short-term jail stay," prosecutor Barry Grove said.

Moments after pleading no contest to two felony counts of computer theft, the former Dublin CHP officer read a prepared statement. "I apologize to my family, my wife, my friends. I apologize to officers everywhere and especially to the two women involved. I'm trying to put this behind me and move forward from this. I hope now that everyone else can too," Harrington read. "I've fully cooperated with investigators and done everything asked of me to try to make this right," Harrington said.

"I think he knows and what I've said on representing him, is that the conduct here was serious but at the same time, it was impulsive and it was immature," Harrington's attorney Michael Rains said. A felony conviction will keep Harrington from getting another job in law enforcement, but his attorney Mike Rains said they might seek relief from a higher court. In November, voters passed Proposition 47 which allows certain nonviolent felonies to be reduced to misdemeanors.

"The legislature has indicated the system should treat nonviolent thefts as misdemeanors," said Rains. "I think the time will probably come where I will probably consider filing an appropriate motion with the court to have this considered as a misdemeanor."

Former California Highway Patrol Officer Sean Harrington walks away after his arraignment on felony computer theft charges was postponed at the Wakefield Taylor Courthouse, as media follow him to his car in Martinez, Calif., Monday, Nov. 3, 2014. The former Dublin-based CHP officer has resigned from the agency and was charged Oct. 31 with two felonies for allegedly secretly forwarding himself explicit photos from female arrestees' phones and then sharing the images with colleagues.

MARTINEZ -- Hours after former CHP Officer Sean Harrington surrendered to authorities and minutes after his first appearance in a Martinez courtroom Monday, his attorney apologized to the women his client is accused of victimizing by secretly stealing racy photos from their cellphones and sharing them with colleagues.

Attorney Michael Rains explained that his client thought it was a "cute and funny" joke, but it was anything but, he said.

"What was he thinking? Probably the honest answer was, he wasn't thinking," Rains told a media gathering outside of the Martinez courtroom where moments earlier Harrington sat stoically with his wife. "He thought it was cute, he thought it was funny. He didn't send it anywhere else, he didn't put it on the Internet, Facebook, it went no further."

Harrington, dressed in a gray striped suit, said nothing to reporters outside of court and softly answered "I do" to Judge Terri Mockler when asked if he understood the delay in his arraignment on two charges of computer theft. Earlier the 35-year-old father of two turned himself in and posted $10,000 bail. Harrington faces up to three years and eight months in prison if convicted of those charges.

"It's difficult for a law enforcement officer to turn himself in, but it's difficult for a law enforcement officer to surrender a career, and he's already done that," Rains said of Harrington, who resigned last week. "He's been through a lot, and as you can imagine is very sad about what his own conduct has cost him and his family, but he acknowledges his mistakes."

Harrington returns to court Nov. 14 for his arraignment, and a possible plea deal.

"He's indicated to me he'd like to wrap this up as soon as possible for the sake of his family and for the sake of these proceedings," Rains said. "So, if we can resolve this case on the 14th, we're going to do that."

Harrington allegedly forwarded explicit photos from at least two women's phones to his own personal device while he arrested them on suspicion of DUI in August, according to search warrants. Harrington then shared the photos with at least two CHP officers, also based out of the Dublin office, exchanging salacious text messages about the women.

No other CHP officers have been arrested in this case, and the Contra Costa district attorney on Friday said the other two officers who received Harrington's texts did not commit a crime.

"It's an egregious invasion of privacy, but what's worse is it undermines the public's confidence in the criminal justice system," Contra Costa deputy district attorney Barry Grove said Monday.

Rains' apology didn't sit well with Rick Madsen, attorney for the woman who discovered her stolen photos and went to DA investigators.

"The expression of remorse and regret as articulated by his lawyer rings hollow. There's still no explanation whatsoever of the disposition of (my client's) personal and private photographs nor who may have seen them," Madsen said "Her anxiety and distrust continue unabated."

Madsen added that Harrington still has not identified the other four to six women from whom he admitted stealing photos and until then his remorse is "disingenuous."

"It's important to remember he didn't come forward voluntarily to admit to these crimes, he got caught," Madsen said.

In a statement to investigators, Harrington told them he learned of the scheme while at the Los Angeles CHP office and saw members of the Dublin station doing it when he transferred there. But on Monday, Rains clarified that when Harrington told investigators the "game" was widespread, including at his first assignment in Los Angeles, he was speaking only of "rumors" he heard.

CHP officials have maintained the incidents are isolated to the Dublin office, based on their internal investigation. Rains said Monday his client has not been interviewed by the CHP, but his Contra Costa district attorney investigation interview was handed over.

The attorney said the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, which launched its own investigation last week, has not spoken to Harrington either.

At least two DUI cases -- one in Contra Costa County and one in Alameda County -- involving two of the Dublin CHP officers named in court documents have been dropped by prosecutors. Defense attorneys have asked that active and past cases involving those CHP officers be reviewed.

Rains said his client told Contra Costa investigators during a three-hour interview he stole photos from women "four to six" times over a three-year period. The attorney estimated Harrington arrested about 25 women a year on suspicion of DUI.

"There were many, many, many women who were stopped and arrested by this officer" where he did not steal their photos, Rains said. To his victims, Rains said: "A heartfelt apology to them for the insensitivity of his conduct. The indignity of it all. He knows it was inappropriate. It's just too bad he wasn't thinking of it at the time it occurred."
"The only good nigger is a dead nigger and they should hang you in the town square to prevent any other nigger from coming in the area."

(Anna Gristina, accused of being a madam on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is seen in wedding photos taken 10 years ago during her marriage to Kelvin Gorr. (credit: Facebook/Kelvin Gorr))

New York City -- Was a 44-year-old mother of four living in the suburbs secretly running a multi-million dollar prostitution ring in New York City? That’s what the NYPD is saying. Police arrested Anna Gristina for allegedly running a high-priced brothel for more than 15 years. Investigators say they have hours of surveillance video and photos to prove it. They claim she has made as much as $10 million from providing escorts and prostitutes to a client list that includes wealthy high profile business leaders, sports stars and even politicians.

Meanwhile, 40 miles away at her suburban home, her husband says he had no idea this was going on.

Street Pimping!

June 24, 2011 Each day, a woman we'll call Jessica, spent hours on the Internet posting provocative photos of herself and fishing for clients who would pay her to have sex. Jessica worked as a prostitute in the booming Internet sex trade. But she didn't work for herself. She says she had a pimp who set a quota of $1,000 a day – money that took about 10 dates to earn. Jessica told me she was afraid of her pimp who is a gang member. If she didn't work, she didn't eat, saying she once went 5 days without food.


June 16, 2011 So Anthony Weiner is resigning, after discussions with his wife persuaded him he could no longer serve. He was facing the prospect of an ethics investigation, and House leaders were set to strip him of a key committee slot, both of which would have compounded his humiliation. Weiner can be described, I think, as Twitter’s first major political casualty, in several ways. For one thing, no other equally high profile elected official has had to resign because of a scandal set in motion by a single Tweet. For another, it was the lack of experience with Twitter-sparked scandals that led him to botch his initial response to the unfolding story. He claimed the underwear bulge picture had been Tweeted from his account by his hacker. He was navigating the largely uncharted technological waters of Twitter-based scandals, and as a result, he badly screwed up. In the future, politicians who get in trouble over a wayward Tweet will look back on Weiner’s travails as a guide on what not to do. Weiner, alas, had no such playbook at his disposal, and he compounded his problems at the outset. Weiner was Twitter’s first major political casualty in a darker way, too. This episode demonstrated in a unique way that Twitter can encourage pack political journalism at its worst. I’m not defending Weiner. He lied to his colleagues, and what he did was unspeakably foolish, given that his outspoken liberalism guaranteed that he’d be a tempting target for the right. I’m agnostic on whether he should have resigned; other public officials who have committed far worse acts, sexual and otherwise, haven’t faced a fraction of the pressure he faced to step down. But ultimately, all you can say about his departure is that Democrats have now lost a very effective spokesman for the liberal cause — even if at times he did disappoint — and his profound folly and subsequent humiliation are just sad.
But look — even if there’s no defending Weiner, you can’t escape the fact that the weeks-long journalistic obsession with his lewd acts was a profoundly dispiriting spectacle on many levels. And Twitter played a major role in encouraging it. There were times during this whole saga when the swarm of prurient and even adolescent Tweets about Weiner coming from reputable and established journalists and political observers was simply impenetrable. At times a kind of echo effect kicked in where it was clear that if you Tweeted about any other topic, it would rapidly get drowned out. At one point a journalist colleague joked to me that he may as well take the afternoon off. His meaning was clear: Twitter has become a kind of De-facto front page for political journalists, and if he reported and Tweeted on any other topic, he could count on it getting completely lost. No, Twitter is not ultimately to blame for what happened, and Weiner very well may have ended up getting forced to resign without it. And again, there’s no defending him. But this episode also showcased and encouraged a new kind of hyperkinetic, Twitter-fueled pack journalism that at bottom was very, very ugly to behold. And I hope I’m not the only one who’s deeply uncomfortable about the way it all unfolded.

Alldred, Porn & Lies!

More 'Pictroubles'!

June 12, 2011 Pictured above, U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) at the House Members' Gym in Washington, D.C. Weiner transmitted these photos online to several women via Twitter. WASHINGTON, D.C. (WCJB) – Democrats on Sunday stepped up calls for US Congressman Anthony Weiner to resign over his lewd online exchanges with women, as new dirty photos allegedly tweeted by the politician surfaced. The latest pictures, published by a gossip news website and allegedly tweeted to at least one woman, show Weiner photographing himself with his cellphone in suggestive positions, including in a towel clutching his crotch. In a potentially career-ending twist, they also appear to have been taken in the House of Representatives gymnasium, said the report, which suggested this could be the final straw that forces his resignation. After lying point-blank about his X-rated Internet liaisons for days, even suggesting that hackers had infiltrated his Twitter account, Weiner called a nationally televised press conference on Monday and made a tearful admission. He said he had been sending pictures online and sexting with six women, but refused to stand down as a New York congressman, saying he had not met any of the women, nor had he had a physical relationship outside his marriage. By Friday, it appeared that the congressman may have weathered the worst of the storm but it then emerged that he had been exchanging private messages, again through the micro-blogging site Twitter, with a 17-year-old girl. Although none of the messages were deemed inappropriate by the parents of the high school girl, Democrats appeared to close ranks, and party leaders, including former speaker Nancy Pelosi, called on him to go the following day.
“Congressman Weiner has the love of his family, the confidence of his constituents, and the recognition that he needs help[.] I urge Congressman Weiner to seek that help without the pressures of being a Member of Congress.” -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
In a bid to save his career, Weiner announced on Saturday that he was taking a "short leave of absence" from Congress to seek treatment. "Congressman Weiner departed this morning to seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person," spokeswoman Risa Heller said in a statement. But the latest batch of photos, including the fact that he used the House gym as the backdrop for his sexual deviance, appeared to be too much for Democratic leaders. "This is bizarre, unacceptable behavior," said number two House Democrat Steny Hoyer. "It seems to me extraordinarily difficult that he can proceed to represent his constituents in an effective way given the circumstances this bizarre behavior has led to," Hoyer told media affilliates. "I would hope that Mr. Weiner would use this opportunity to reflect upon whether or not he can effectively proceed. I don't see how he can, and I hope he would make that judgment." Democrats are on the defensive in their handling of the scandal, after Republicans dispatched a GOP lawmaker from New York caught in similar scandal this year within hours after the scandal broke. Republican Christopher Lee in February was forced by party elders to resign after it emerged that he sent various flirtatious emails to a woman he met on Craigslist. Lee's amorous messages included one in which the married father of a young child flexes his bare chest and arm muscles. But those pictures were mild compared to the ones sent by Weiner. If Weiner rides out calls for his resignation, he could stand for reelection next November, and polls of his New York district showed that he continues to have considerable support from his constituents. Hoyer in his television interview underscored the political stalemate, suggesting that however distasteful his actions, removing Weiner against his will could involve a protracted and messy legal battle. "Any process, a judicial process through the ethics committee, is going to take time. I really don't know that we have that time." Democrats consider the scandal all the more sad because Weiner is married to Huma Abedin, a hugely popular aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Former president Bill Clinton presided over their July 2010 nuptials. Abedin, 35, is also pregnant with the couple's first child.

Teen Troubles!

June 11, 2011 WILMINGTON, Del. — A teenage girl from Delaware has been interviewed by police about online contact she had with U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, communications he has said were "neither explicit nor indecent." Authorities said the teen didn't say anything about illegal conduct. It's the latest turn in a scandal that has some members of Congress calling for the New York Democrat to step down, after he admitted sending graphic photos to women online. The 46-year-old congressman acknowledged Friday that he had online contact with the 17-year-old girl but said there was nothing inappropriate. The New York Democrat issued his statement after media sources reported Friday that officers had interviewed the high school junior at her family's home north of Wilmington. "They were made aware of an alleged contact between Congressman Anthony Weiner and an area teen," said Officer Tracey Duffy, a New Castle County police spokeswoman. "The teen has been interviewed and disclosed no information regarding any criminal activity." Duffy said she doesn't know what led to the girl being questioned or whether the family had called police. "I don't know what information they received that would prompt them to respond to this residence," she said. Duffy said the investigation was continuing. Weiner spokeswoman Risa Heller said in a one-sentence statement Friday night, "According to Congressman Weiner, his communications with this person were neither explicit nor indecent." The congressman said he exchanged at least five private messages on Twitter this spring with the girl after she heard him speak in Washington and became an admirer, media sources reported. Late Friday night, no one answered when an Associated Press reporter called and knocked at the door of the teen's house even though lights were on and people were inside. The modest two-story house, in a neighborhood near the Pennsylvania border, had red, white and blue bows on the porch and two small American flags planted in the ground. Neighbor Ben Melvin said the media was paying way too much attention to the Weiner episode. "I don't think it's good for her and I don't think it's good for the nation," Melvin said. "It's a sideshow. It has nothing to do with his abilities as a representative. On the other hand it obviously shows some lack of judgment or something." A shirtless man approached reporters standing outside the family's house and began threatening them with an ax. New Castle County police took the man into custody. Media sources reported that two officers visited the girl's home around 4:30 p.m. and that they were joined by another officer. The website reported that police left after about 30 minutes, and that the girl and her mother then departed in a separate car. media sources reported that the girl, whom it declined to identify because she is a minor, said, "I'm doing OK." The source's website had a reporter outside the house when the police visit occurred. Weiner, a seven-term Democrat, has acknowledged sending sexually explicit messages over the Internet to a half-dozen women over the past three years and then lying about it. Weiner is married to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; Abedin is pregnant with the couple's first child. Amid increasing calls for Weiner to resign, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said earlier Friday that the decision should be up to him and his constituents. In a recent poll of registered voters in Weiner's district, 56% said he should stay in office while 33% said he should leave. Pelosi has asked the House Ethics Committee to investigate whether Weiner used any government resources. He has said he does not believe he did. At least nine House members and three senators said Weiner should resign. He has repeatedly said he would not. U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, said Thursday he wished Weiner would resign "to get that story off the front page." He said the controversy distracts from pressing economic issues. Two former Democratic Party chairmen also said he should resign. Weiner did pick up support from U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel, a New York Democrat who was censured by the House last year for ethics violations. Rangel suggested that other members of Congress had done things more immoral than Weiner. Rangel said Weiner "wasn't going with prostitutes. He wasn't going out with little boys."

Wifey's Pregnant!

June 8, 2011 According to the report, 46-year-old Weiner and 35-year-old Abedin have told close friends and family members about the pregnancy. Abedin -- an aide to Hillary Clinton -- is currently on her way to Northern Africa with her boss. Despite the fact he sent scandalous pictures of himself to multiple women -- including the infamous penis bulge photo -- Weiner told the media his marriage is not in jeopardy.

New Yorkers!

It's Me!

June 6, 2011 [Updated at 5:08 p.m. ET] U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner said Monday he has sent inappropriate photos to and had inappropriate communications with about six women over the past three years - some after he was married - and says he's "very sorry." The photos include one - sent on his Twitter account more than a week ago - that he had previously claimed was a result of a hacker's prank, the New York Democrat told reporters Monday afternoon at a New York City hotel. He said he's made "terrible mistakes and ... hurt the people that I care about the most," but he won't step down from Congress and has no plans to separate from his wife. "I'm deeply regretting what I’ve done, and I’m not resigning," he said. The women are "generally women that I met on Facebook," Weiner said. He said he never met the women in person, and has never had sex outside his marriage. Of the photo that got the media's attention late last month - a picture of a man in underwear that was sent on Weiner's Twitter account - he said that he mistakenly tweeted it publicly. "I intended to send (the photo) as a direct message to a woman as part of a joke to a woman in Seattle," he said. FULL STORY When reporters asked him about it at the time, he said that he didn't send that photo, and that he was the victim of a hacker and a prank. "Once I realized I had posted to Twitter, I panicked, I took it down and said that I’d been hacked," Weiner said Monday. "I then continued with that story - to stick to that story - which was a hugely regrettable mistake. This woman was unwittingly dragged into this and bears no responsibility. I'm so sorry to have disrupted her life in this way." "To be clear, the picture was of me, and I sent it." He added that he's "deeply sorry for the pain this has caused" to his wife, friends and constituents. Weiner said whether he would run for re-election is "the last thing on my mind." Earlier in the day, Weiner faced fresh questions after BigGovernment.com, a site run by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart, posted a picture of a bare-chested man that it says a woman claims came from Weiner. [Posted at 4:16 p.m. ET] U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-New York, is scheduled to address members of the news media late Monday afternoon in a New York City hotel, according to his office. News of Weiner's planned address comes amid more than a week of controversy over photos that are alleged to have come from him or his Twitter account, including one released Monday by BigGovernment.com, a site run by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart. The site has posted a picture of a bare-chested man that it says a woman claims came from Weiner. CNN has been unable to independently confirm that the image is that of the congressman or was sent by him. As reporters waited for Weiner to make his address Monday afternoon, Breitbart appeared at the hotel, and - apparently at the urging of reporters - took to a podium and spoke to the media, CNN's Mary Snow reported. The latest photo emerged more than a week after a different photograph - one of a man in underwear - was sent on Weiner's Twitter account. Weiner has said that he didn't send that photo, and that he was the victim of a hacker and a prank.

NYPD Rape Trial!

May 16, 2011 04:39 p.m. PDT Closing arguments for the defense ended today in the seven-week rape trial of two city police officers. Officer Franklin Mata's lawyer told jurors that his client broke police department rules, and that's it. Mata is accused of acting as a look out as his partner, Officer Kenneth Moreno, allegedly raped a drunk woman in her East Village apartment in 2008. Surveillance video shows that the officer and his partner went back to the woman’s apartment three times after initially helping her home after a 911 call. They didn't tell their bosses about the visits.
NYPD Rape Trial: 911 Call & Surveillance Video !
"If any of us violate our job duties on the job that doesn't mean that we committed a crime," said Mata’s attorney. During his summation, he argued no one was raped and Mata had very little contact with the 27-year-old clothing store executive as his partner spoke with her in the bathroom and bedroom. During summations, Mata's attorney said, "He's a separate human being, he's a separate person and when you discuss him I'm asking you to discuss him separately." After the closing arguments, Mata's attorney then told reporters, "If you heard the testimony, my client was asleep on the couch. So, you know, I think it is an important distinction that has to be highlighted.” The officers are also charged with falsifying records, official misconduct and burglary for entering the woman's apartment. They say they went back because officer Moreno is a recovering alcoholic and wanted to help the woman kick her drinking habit. There's no DNA evidence in this case. Mata's lawyer also told jurors the accuser is a woman with, "…a significant lawsuit and a significant jackpot." She has filed a $57 million lawsuit against the NYPD. The case is in its seventh week. Jurors still have to deliberate. "I hope the jury bears with us and understands that how significant it is," said Mata's attorney.

APD: Kevin Head!

May 16, 2011 05:03 p.m. PDT A former Atlanta police officer will spend two years in prison for sexually assaulting a woman while on duty. Kevin Head, 32, pleaded guilty Monday to charges of sodomy and violation of oath of office, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said. Upon his release from prison, Head will serve eight years' probation. Head was patrolling an area of Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard on June 15, 2004, when he offered to drive a 44-year-old woman to a MARTA station, Howard said. The woman accepted but instead of driving her to the train station, Head detoured to an empty warehouse a short distance away. There, the officer groped the victim and demanded oral sex from her in his patrol car. Head cleaned himself with a piece of notebook paper, which was later used as evidence, Howard said. He then took the woman to the MARTA station and gave her $3 for fare. The woman reported the incident to police. Head, who began his employment as an Atlanta officer in 2000, resigned in 2006 while under administrative investigation.

NYPD Rape Trial!

Closing Argument!

May 13, 2011 NEW YORK (WCJB) — There's no DNA evidence, conflicting medical testimony and an accuser with patchy memories in a case against two police officers charged with the rape of a woman they were summoned to help, a defense lawyer emphasized Friday in urging jurors to acquit them. "The evidence was not there," the lawyer Moreno said in his closing argument. He represents Officer Kenneth Moreno, accused of sexually assaulting a semi-conscious, drunken woman while fellow Officer Franklin Mata allegedly stood watch in December 2008. Both officers face rape and other charges and deny the allegations. Mata's lawyer and prosecutors are due to give their summations next week. NYPD officers Franklin Mata, left, and Kenneth Moreno. The officers were called to help the woman get out of a taxi and into her Manhattan apartment. They took her keys and returned to her apartment three times within the next four hours — at her urging, they said — without telling dispatchers where they were. Moreno even admitted making a bogus 911 call about a sleeping vagrant to provide a pretext for one of the visits.
The woman, who has a corporate job in fashion, had been out celebrating an impending promotion. She acknowledged she didn't remember much of the night but testified that she passed out and awoke briefly to being raped. She said she was too intoxicated to fight back. "(Her) story is not reliable. She blacked out, folks," Moreno's attorney told jurors. "She tried to connect the dots and got it wrong." Moreno testified that the woman made sexual overtures on his final visit and he lay alongside her in bed for a while, but they didn't have sex. Mata told jurors he was napping in her living room while the others were in the bedroom, but he didn't believe Moreno had violated the woman because he "wouldn't do something like that." When the woman confronted Moreno in a secretly taped conversation several days after the encounter, he repeatedly denied they'd had sex — but he also said "yes" twice when she asked whether he'd used a condom. He testified that he was just trying to pacify her. There's no DNA evidence in the case, and experts debated the significance of an internal mark found during an examination of the woman the next day. A forensic examiner who testified for prosecutors said the mark could be a result of a rape; a gynecologist who testified for the defense said it was negligible, and he didn't interpret it as a sign of a rape. The woman, now 29, has sued the city for $57 million over the incident, a fact Moreno's attorney also underscored in his summation. She told jurors last month she sued because she wanted to hold the officers "accountable for what they did to me." Moreno, 43, has been an officer for 17 years. Mata, 29, has been on the force for about five years. They have been suspended until a police department review after their trial.

Shots Downed - Officer Rapes!

Posted: May 13, 2011 01:45 PM - Updated: May 13, 2011 03:11 PM Chicago Police Officers Juan Vasquez (left) and Paul Clavijo were charged with sexually assaulting a drunk young woman while on duty on March 30, 2011.Two Chicago Police officers charged with sexually assaulting a drunk young woman while on duty are guilty only of “an indiscretion” and “bad decisions,” defense attorneys say. But Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez said the 22-year-old victim was so intoxicated that she was “unable to give knowing consent” to sex with officers Juan Vasquez and Paul Clavijo. Speaking after prosecutors revealed that the victim had a blood-alcohol level of .38 — nearly five times the legal limit for driving a car in Illinois — during the alleged March 30 assault, and that Clavijo had allegedly attacked another woman previously, Alvarez said, “These officers committed an extremely offensive violation of trust, luring vulnerable young women into a situation’’ instead of protecting them. “They victimized these women. They not only violated, but they essentially destroyed their oath of office,” Alvarez said. Earlier Thursday, Judge Maria Kuriakos-Ciesil set bail at $500,000 each, noting the “trust that was placed on them as a result of their positions.” As of Thursday evening, Vasquez had posted bond but Clavijo remained behind bars. In court, Vasquez, wearing a blue polo shirt, and Clavijo, wearing a University of Illinois sweatshirt, spoke only to confirm their names and to say they wished to be represented by private attorneys. Both attorneys later denied the allegations, insisting the sex had been consensual. The officers were on duty and in uniform when they offered the victim a ride home to Rogers Park from Wrigleyville near Sheffield and Addison at 2 a.m. on March 30, Assistant Cook County States Attorney Patty Sudendorf told the judge. The woman, who had been drinking at a friend’s home, attempted to enter the back seat of the marked squad car, but Clavijo ushered her onto his lap in the front seat, where he sexually assaulted her while Vasquez went into a liquor store, Sudendorf added. The victim “believed she could not say no to Clavijo’s sexual advances and had to do whatever the police officer asked her to do,” Sudendorf said. At the victim’s home in the 1300 block of West Greenleaf, she drank and played strip poker with the men, who removed their clothing and sexually assaulted her, prosecutors said. She ended up pounding on her walls and screaming that the officers had sexually assaulted her, prosecutors alleged. Witnesses saw one of the cops fleeing naked and another putting his police uniform on in the victim’s room after neighbors dialed 911, Sudendorf added. Police found the victim in a “hysterical” state and recovered part of Vasquez’s uniform and cell phone from the room, as well as a bottle of vodka the victim had been drinking, she said. Swabs taken from the victim’s body indicated neither defendant can be excluded as the attacker, she said. Clavijo is also accused of a similar crime on March 10, in which he and Vasquez allegedly picked up a 26-year-old woman at a bus stop near Clark and Sheffield, Sudendorf said. They drove her home and asked to use her restroom, prosecutors said. Inside, when Vasquez went to the bathroom, Clavijo allegedly followed the woman into her bedroom where he “pushed her onto the bed, pulled down her pants and performed a sex act on her,” prosecutors said. The woman objected, and the officers left — but she did not immediately report the crime because she worked in the area and was intimidated because the offenders were police officers and knew where she lived, according to prosecutors. Vasquez does not face charges in connection with the incident. Speaking outside court Thursday, Clavijo’s attorney said that Clavijo is a highly regarded officer with 10 years of experience. “Paul Clavijo is not a rapist and should not be thought of as a rapist,” he said of the father of a 20-year-old daughter. “That would be a terrible and tragic mistake.” He said that while he could not address the March 10 allegations, he called the March 30 incident an “indiscretion,’’ which might cost Clavijo his job but was not a crime. “I hope that none of us would be judged by the worst 15 minutes of our lives,” he said. Clavijo “did not force himself on anyone. . . . Indiscretions, as our President Bill Clinton reminded us, are not crimes.” Asked whether a woman with a blood-alcohol level of .38 could consent, he answered with a question: “If someone has a blood alcohol of .38, can she play strip poker?” Vasquez’s attorney also maintained that his client did not commit any crime and acknowledged that the March 30 incident may cost Vasquez his job. In court, he denied Vasquez was present during the March 10 incident. There has been “a rush to judgment and a case of a police officer being held to a different standard than any other profession,” he said. “This is not a criminal incident. Were there some bad decisions made? Absolutely.” Both men were ordered by the judge to surrender their police weapons. Both had been assigned to desk duties since the allegations surfaced. Acting Police Supt. Terry Hillard said Thursday the officers would be placed back on administrative duties once they make bail, but that they still face internal police sanctions and an ongoing investigation. He praised the courage of the victims, adding: “This is a sad day, not because two members of the Chicago Police Department have been arrested and charged — it’s a sad day because of the unimaginable damage that’s been done to two individuals, multiple families and the community.” Hillard in March voiced his outrage at the incident and hinted that neither officer had a stellar record. Clavijo, who state records indicate has the license plate “ALL BLUE,” and Vasquez, traveled miles outside the district in which they worked to visit the victim’s home on the night of the attack, but could not be traced at the time because a GPS tracking device on their squad car was not functioning, law enforcement sources said. As a result, the department is conducting a review of the system, the sources said, adding that it doesn’t appear the officers tampered with their device. The department started installing GPS devices on squad cars in 2006. They’ve used them to clear cops of misconduct, but they also have been used as evidence against officers. Last year, two officers were returned to duty after a GPS device showed they weren’t present during the alleged beating of a handcuffed suspect. GPS also led the department last year to launch an investigation of three officers and a sergeant for improperly taking credit for an arrest of a robbery suspect by University of Chicago police.

Edward Nottingham


July 11, 2009 "I do not subscribe to the popular adage that rules are made to be broken."* * June 22, 2006 Order by Nottingham in Neely v. McGarry 2006 WL 1749411 (No. 03-cv-00616 (D. Colo. Jun. 22, 2006) slip op. at 12 & fn. 7. June 2009, an attorney attending the May 20th Annual Colorado Employment Law Conference informed bloggers that "Fast Eddie" was an audience-attendee. (Nancy Cohen (Attorney Deregulation Council) was among the esteemed speakers). While the former chief federal judge was likely there just to earn a few CLE credits to keep his law license in "good standing," We hope he learns something about employment law: Recall that, in Phillips v. Pepsi Bottling Group, No. 05-cv-01322-EWN-KLM (filed Nov. 1, 2007), Magistrate Kristen Mix was quoting as advising a plaintiff as follows:
"The biggest problem with your case is that Judge Nottingham hates employment cases and there's nothing you can do about it. It's random. Now don't get me wrong, he's a fine judge, but he just hates employment cases. That's why he will try to find any way in the summary judgment briefs to say there's no material issues and grant summary judgment, and if he doesn't, he will make it tough at trial, and you won't win . . . I'm going to look you right in the eye and tell you that you're gonna lose."

April 17, 2009: Former Chief U.S. District Judge Edward Nottingham, the man who sent ex-Qwest chief Joe Nacchio to the slammer for six years for illegal insider trading, has hung out his lawyer's shingle in downtown Denver. Nottingham has a license in good standing to practice law, but that license is under scrutiny by the Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel after legal blogger Sean Harrington filed a misconduct complaint about the former judge in December after Nottingham resigned from the bench amid controversy. The alleged sketchy behavior included revelations in documents from his third divorce that he spent $3,000 at the Diamond Cabaret strip club; allegations by that ex-wife that Nottingham surfed adult-dating websites that link to pornography; claims that he parked in a handicapped spot outside a drug store, then argued with an outraged woman in a wheelchair who called him on it; and purported relationships with prostitutes. All of the above earned him the nickname Judge Naughty. Nottingham, 60, has set up shop at 600 17th St., specializing in "alternative dispute resolution, criminal law and litigation," according to the Colorado Bar Association website. The former judge did not return phone calls.
The [Colorado] Attorney Regulation Counsel has no inclination to investigate and discipline this former federal judge who, we are told, used his former office to browse porn; used his former government-issued cell-phone to arrange prostitution services; availed himself of unlawful prostitution services; and asked a prostitute to give false testimony in an ongoing or prospective federal investigation.
October 21, 2008 A judicial investigation into former Chief U.S. District Judge Edward W. Nottingham Jr.'s ties to local prostitutes effectively concluded with Nottingham's resignation, but his problems might not be at an end. Chief Judge Robert H. Henry, who had disciplinary oversight of Nottingham at the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, issued an order Thursday that said Nottingham "may have made false statements" during the court's inquiry into his behavior. An expert not connected to the case said that complaint could open the door to further investigation of Nottingham — both a criminal probe to determine whether he lied and a review of his license to practice law. "It is certainly troubling if anybody makes false statements to an official government investigator and especially troubling if it's a federal judge," said Arthur Hellman, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. "I can well anticipate that if an accusation is substantiated that he would face discipline, suspension or loss of license," Hellman said. But even more serious, Nottingham could be prosecuted for perjury if federal investigators determined there was probable cause to think he lied under oath to judicial investigators. A federal perjury conviction could come with fines or a five-year prison term. "Based on a review of the statutes and the rules, it would appear that there is a possibility of a perjury prosecution if the U.S. attorney believes there is strong evidence that he gave knowingly false testimony," Hellman said. Nottingham and his attorney did not return calls seeking comment Thursday. A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Troy Eid declined to comment on whether a criminal investigation is underway. In his order dismissing the complaints against Nottingham because of the resignation, Henry did not elaborate on why he thought Nottingham "may have made false statements."
Original post

Edward Nottingham

October 21, 2008 Chief U.S. District Judge Edward Nottingham has resigned from the federal bench in the midst of an investigation into misconduct outside the courtroom. Once again we have another Judge (See Profile of Judge Gifford) soliciting prostitution and not being arrested or required to serve any time in jail. The majority of Prostitution in the United States is controlled by Organized Crime (Italian Mafia, Mexican Mafia, Motorcycle Gangs, Asian Human-Smuggling Rings, etc.). In divorce proceedings, Nottingham's former wife alleged that he had spent thousands of dollars in a strip club. Nottingham admitted he spent $150 on the website ipayfriendfinder.com, which features adult pornography. The judge also admitted that he spent $3,000 during at least one night at the Diamond Cabaret, a strip club in downtown Denver, the record shows. Judge Nottingham: "I'm embarrassed to be even talking about this," the judge said in the court transcripts. "I think you pay extra to get certain features, such as if you upload a picture or — I don't even recall." Judge Nottingham: "You know, I don't remember," Nottingham testified. "I had had a lot to drink and I don't remember." Many strip clubs are merely fronts for prostitution rings or criminal organizations. Many of the women (and men) employed in the strip clubs of America are either current, former or future Pornography Actors/Actresses. Example: • The porn star Alexia Moore<---(WARNING: Adult Content) (real name is Cassandra Malandri), was arrested and charged with prostitution while working in a New York strip club. Since that time, media sources reported that Nottingham's name popped up as a client in an investigation of a Denver prostitution ring and that a prostitute had complained to the 10th Circuit that Nottingham had asked her to mislead judicial investigators about their relationship.

For the defense, the one-time NFL star worth $40 million was targeted by police and prosecutors in the murder of the semipro football player because of celebrity status. Hernandez "never had a chance" as authorities zeroed in, his defense lawyer told the jury. The sensational trial, which comes nearly three years after the standout tight end helped lead his team to Super Bowl XLVI, resumes Friday with the victim's mother and girlfriend expected to testify.
