Sexually abusing four differently-abled women nets man prison

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.

Philadelphia Church official granted bail after his conviction was reversed

After 18 months in prison, Monsignor William Lynn, may be released when he was granted bail following the reversal of his conviction.

Lynn, who served as a secretary for clergy at the Philadelphia archdiocese, will have to give up his passport. He will also be made to wear an electronic device for monitoring.

The Roman Catholic official was sentenced to between three to six years after he was convicted for endangering an abuse victim of a priest.

However, appeal judges reversed Lynn's conviction because the child-endangerment law which he was accused of violating did not apply to him.

Following the reversal, Lynn's defense lawyers asked for his release which the prosecution opposed during the bail hearing claiming that the priest is a flight risk.

However, Philadelphia defense attorney Thomas Bergstrom said that Lynn would never run away from conviction.

Man convicted for trying to abduct 10y.o. girl

Carlos Figueroa-Fagot was found guilty of attempting to kidnap a girl aged 10 years old last July, an incident that was caught by a surveillance camera.

The girl's mother said she was pleased with the decision.

Figueroa-Fagot will be sentenced in December.

However, Figueroa-Fagot's Philadelphia defense lawyer Geoffrey Kilroy said they will appeal the conviction claiming his client's identity was mistaken.

Judge orders man to stand trial in elderly man’s beating death

Kareem Mosley has been ordered to stand trial for murder and manslaughter charges for the death of Richard Eley of West Philadelphia.

Philadelphia criminal attorney Gerald A. Stein had asked for the dismissal of the charges against Mosley saying that it cannot be proved that Eley's death was caused by injuries he suffered when Mosley beat him eight months prior to his demise.

Prior to Eley's beating in April, the elderly man has been able to lead a normal and healthy life and has been able to live alone despite suffering a stroke five years ago.

After the beating, Eley was hospitalized and had remained unconscious until his death.

Autopsy results also showed that Eley's brain has continued to bleed and there were still evidence of bruises due to the attack until his death.

Penn State settles with one of Sandusky's victims

A settlement has been reached by the Pennsylvania State University and one of the victims who was sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky, the school's assistant football coach.

This was confirmed by Philadelphia attorney Tom Kline whose client is known as "Victim No. 5".

Kline's 25-year-old client was sexually assaulted by Sandusky in the shower of the campus.

It is the first settlement of 26 claims filed against the university after Sandusky was found guilty of abusing boys for 15 years.

Victim No.5 was molested by Sandusky a few months after a graduate student had reported to the officials of the university that he had seen Sandusky sexually abused a boy in the showers.

Kline said his client was reassured with the development as he had not sought what had happened.

Irish nanny facing murder in death of 1-year-old girl denied bail

Aisling Brady McCarthy, a nanny from Ireland, will have to await her murder trial in jail after she was denied bail.

McCarthy is accused of the death of Remah Sabir, a one-year-old girl who had suffered a head trauma while under her care. She was brought in to the hospital and died two days later.

However, McCarthy may get a reprieve after the judge got frustrated with the prosecutors' delay in handing over medical proof which could prove critical for her defense.

David Meier, a criminal attorney in Boston defending for McCarthy, said that the evidence they were asking for is necessary to the case.

McCarthy's defense said they are not ready to go to trial in April because of the delay.

Man cleared of rape that happened in 1993

Stephen Cothran was acquitted of rape and kidnapping charges in connection to an incident that happened in 1993.

Cothran, 56, became a suspect when his DNA linked him to evidence gathered during the incident.

However, a negative test had the jury dismissing the charges against Cothran.

Reuben Sheperd, a criminal attorney in Cleveland defending for Cothran, said that the victim had agreed to have sex with his client.

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.

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.

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.
