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.
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.
Former deputy gets five years for punching teenager
David Morrow, who used to be the deputy of the Adams County, has been handed a five-year prison sentence for punching a teenager who was strapped to a gurney.
Morrow said he was sorry that the teenager was hurt because of what he did.
The teenager was causing a disturbance to which Morrow and other police officers have responded.
The police decided to take the teenager to the hospital because he was intoxicated and was being belligerent.
However, while he was strapped to a gurney, Morrow had hit the teenager in the face with his fist.
The sentence may still change as the judge had agreed to schedule another hearing to re-assess Morrow's sentence.
Donald Sisson, a defense attorney in Denver, said the case was not a usual one and thus Morrow's sentence should be re-evaluated.
Life sentence looms over woman found guilty of murder
Jeannette Silvia is looking at a life in prison after a jury found her guilty of murdering Michael Ramirez.
The body of 59-year-old Ramirez was found inside a motel room paid for by Silvia and her ex-boyfriend, Joseph Santos-Torres, who is also charged in connection with Ramirez's death.
Evidence presented in trial showed that Ramirez had paid Silvia for sex then a few days later, Ramirez was made to go to the motel where he was found dead.
Sarah Christensen and Phil Dubois, Colorado Springs defense attorneys, downplayed their client, Silvia's participation in the murder, saying that it was Santos-Torres who killed Ramirez and all she did was helped him escape as he had asked.
The jury, however, did not buy it.
Santos-Torres himself is awaiting trial.
