Gary gets reduced sentence for bribery for cooperating with Gwinnett corruption probe
Mark Gary, a developer in Gwinnett County convicted for bribery, got a reprieve for his cooperation in an ongoing federal probe of alleged corruption in Gwinnett.
Instead of getting to spend more than four years in federal prison, Gary was meted with just two years plus three years under probation.
Gary was convicted for bribing Shirley Lasseter, the former commissioner of Gwinnett County, to vote for his proposal of a station for waste transfer costing $4 million.
Doug Gilfillan, the assistant United States attorney, said he agreed to reducing the sentence as Gary's cooperation, which included secretly recording his conversations with elected officials, could lead to the indictment of another person involved in the alleged corruption.
However, Atlanta defense attorney Paul Kish representing Gary, said that he and his client are disappointed with the sentence.
According to Kish, Gary deserved more because his cooperation was extensive.
But the judge did not buy Gary's claim that he was a victim of what he alleges as a corrupt system in Gwinnett.
Judge grants delay of DeKalb County CEO’s trial in corruption case
It is not known when the trial of DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis will begin after Courtney L. Johnson, a Superior Court Judge, approved the defense's request for a delay.
Ellis was supposed to stand trial for corruption starting August 19.
The defense lawyers' request did not include a date for the trial to begin.
Jill Polster, Atlanta criminal defense attorney, said the delay will be for the best interest of the residents of DeKalb County.
She added that no one wants to have a trial twice which is what happens when the first trial ends in a conviction and an appeal is filed because it was rushed.

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.

William Walker was handed a minimum of 24 years and a maximum of 60 years in prison after admitting to rape charges.
Walker submitted a guilty plea to allegations that he raped four women who are disabled in a span of 12 days in 2012.
The judge said Walker is a danger to society and rehabilitating him may not help.
Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer Catherine Berryman said Walker was abused while growing up.

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.
NFL player's non-cooperation sees theft charges dropped against woman who stole his jewelry
Theft charges against Subhanna Beyah were dropped after her victim, New York Giants' Shaun Rogers, refused to cooperate with the authorities.
Jonathan Meltz, Beyah's lawyer in Miami, could not be contacted to comment on the issue.
Miami prosecutors believed that Beyah did to Rogers what she did to two other men, wherein she drugged them before stealing their valuables.
According to the police, Rogers had met Beyah at the nightclub of the hotel where he was staying.
Together with another couple, they had gone up to his room where he went to sleep while the others were partying. Before he went to sleep, he put his jewelry inside a safe in the room. When he woke up, Beyah was already gone and so was his jewelry worth almost $500,000.
Rogers had told the prosecution that he was not willing to cooperate during the one time he spoke with them.
Despite the failure of the theft charges to prosper, the prosecution instead will go ahead with charging Beyah for violating her probation wherein she is looking at a 20-year prison sentence if convicted.
Man found guilty in beating death of infant
David Christopher Cruz was found guilty in the death of an infant, who is still five months shy of turning one years old.
The infant victim, the son of Cruz's girlfriend, was taken off life support a few days after he was brought into the hospital unconscious.
He suffered head injuries, several fractures and had bruises on his body.
Court heard that Cruz was the infant's baby sitter while the mother goes to work.
Cruz told the police that he had hit the baby because he keeps on fussing.
Michael Begovich, a criminal lawyer in San Diego defending for Cruz, said that the baby's mother also has a responsibility in her son's death because she had not consulted a doctor when the baby had an ear infection.
