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.
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.
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.
