Los Angeles lawyers insist on client's release
Blair Berk and Leonard Levine, defense lawyers in Los Angeles, are arguing for the release of their client, Darren Sharper, who used to play in the National Football League.
Sharper has submitted a not guilty plea to sexually assaulting two women in Los Angeles.
However, Sharper remains on indefinite custody with no bail after prosecutors pointed out that he also has an arrest warrant issued by authorities in Louisiana.
Sharper's lawyers are insisting on his release because no case has been filed yet pertaining to the Louisiana arrest warrant.
Famous dealer of wine convicted for fraud
The jury returned a guilty verdict against Rudy Kurniawan, a star wine collector, for faking vintage wines, which he apparently just manufactured from his home.
Kurniawan was convicted for fraud and is looking at a massive 40-year sentence.
Kurniawan was once known as among the top five collectors of wine in the world.
Prosecutors accused Kurniawan of earning millions from selling and auctioning fake vintage wines.
Found in the home that Kurniawan shared with his mother were unlabeled bottles and labels of Burgundy and Bordeaux wines.
Suspicions against Kurniawan started during an auction in 2008 wherein he offered to sell Domaine Ponsot wines.
But it wasn't until a 2012 wine auction in London that Kurniawan was arrested.
Los Angeles criminal lawyer Jerome Mooney, defending for Kurniawan, said his client was not trying to defraud people. Instead, all he wanted was to belong.
Jury clears King of Pop's concert promoter of negligence
A jury rejected a negligence lawsuit brought by Katherine Jackson, the mother of Michael Jackson, against AEG Live LLC, the This is It concerts promoter of the King of Pop.
Katherine Jackson's lawyers claimed that the promoter erred when it failed to verify if Dr. Conrad Murray was qualified when it hired him as the singer's doctor.
AEG denied the allegation but said that Murray was hired by Michael Jackson himself.
Murray is already serving a jail sentence for the death of the popstar.
Los Angeles lawyer Marvin S. Putnam, AEG's lead defense counsel, said the jury made the right decision.
The Jackson lawyers had pointed out that the promoter was only after its own profits thus it did not bother to make sure that Murray was a qualified physician.
Putnam and his defence team claimed Murray's hiring was the singer's choice and that if their client had known about what Murray and Jackson were up to they would not have gone on with the series of concerts.
Stepdad found guilty of killing daughters
Robert Lee Phillips was convicted of killing his two stepdaughters in a 2006 birthday celebration for one of the victims.
Jurors found the 66-year-old South Los Angeles man guilty of murder in the first degree for the shooting death of Sabrina Taylor, 30, and murder in the second degree for the death of Charlotte Johnson, 33.
Phillips was also found guilty of attempting to kill two other people during the incident.
The jury had agreed with the Prosecutors that it was clear that Phillips had the intentions of committing the murders to pay the two women for their acts towards him all those years.
This was countered by Louis Sepe, the defense attorney from Los Angeles, who questioned what was his client's motive when he never even lived with the victims.
The incident stemmed from an argument that they were having over the kind of music that was played at the party.
Phillips is looking at a life sentence with no chance of parole.

Plea deal for drunk driver who crashed boat and killed a soon-to-be wed man
A plea deal had Richard Aquilone pleading to lesser charges and getting just a probation for the death of Jijo Puthuvamkunnath.
Puthuvamkunnath was to be married in a few weeks but he never got to tie the knot as he got killed when a drunk Aquilone rammed his boat with his yacht.
The impact was so great that Puthuvamkunnath's boat was split in two.
Aside from the probation, Aquilone will also be made to serve the community for 250 hours.
Marc Agnifilo, New York criminal attorney defending for Aquilone, said his client has expressed regret for the loss that he has caused the Puthuvamkunnaths.
Man cleared of theft charges
Kevin Keheley can breathe a sigh of relief after a jury exonerated him of theft.
Keheley was accused of defrauding a man after entering into a contract of developing an application for a smartphone, which he was never able to produce.
The contract was for $17,000 and Keheley was paid up front with $10,000.
Keheley then relocated to Austin but promised to finish the application. This, however, never happened.
Denver criminal lawyer Laurie Schmidt, who defended for Keheley, said that what happened was a business dispute.
Schmidt added that Keheley had no intention of running away from giving back the money that he received as evidenced by emails showing his intention to pay the money back.
Woman charged in death of fiancé’s two-year-old daughter
Melinda Muniz has been arrested and charged with the death of Grace Ford, the two-year-old daughter of her fiance, who reportedly broke up with her.
Aside from being the fiancee of the victim's father, Muniz was also the caregiver of the little girl.
Muniz's arrest has generated widespread anger with hundreds expressing their disgust for the suspect online.
Robbie McClung, a Dallas criminal attorney who will be defending for Muniz, urged the public to wait for all the facts before judging Muniz.
The police have also stated that Muniz is not considered guilty until proven otherwise.
No bail for man who knocked down a 79YO black man
The bail application of Conrad Barret, who is charged with a hate crime, was denied, something that Barret's lawyer said they have been expecting.
Houston criminal attorney George Parnham said that according to the judge, his 27-year-old client might avoid a criminal conviction. He also poses as a danger to the public.
Barret was charged after he attacked an old, black man; filmed the act and showed it to someone, who turned out to be an arson investigator.
Barrett is looking at more than a 10-year prison term and a fine of more than $200,000 should he get convicted.
Former prosecutor sentenced to 10 days for wrongful conviction
Ken Anderson, the former District Attorney of Williamson County, was meted with a 10-day jail term after the judge accepted his no-contest plea for the charge of contempt of court.
The charge steamed from the wrongful conviction of Michael Morton who was found guilty for the murder of his wife in 1986 and was sentenced to life imprisonment.
However, in 2011, Morton's conviction was overturned using DNA as proof that he did not kill his wife.
In the light of that development, Anderson, who had prosecuted Morton's case, was scrutinized and was determined to have erred when he withheld evidence which would have been beneficial for Morton's defense.
Aside from the short jail stay, Anderson will also have to give up his license as a lawyer and as part of the plea bargain, he will also be disbarred for five years.
Austin attorney Eric Nichols, however, pointed out that there will be no conviction for Anderson on any criminal charge.
Morton, for his part, said he is more than happy with the result because all he wanted was for Anderson not to practice law anymore to prevent what happened to him from happening to anyone else again.
Anderson was also fined and made to do community service.
