Austin man convicted in shooting death of motorist
A sentence of life imprisonment looms for Darius Lovings after the jury found him liable for the death of William Ervin in 2012.
Court heard that Lovings had shot Ervin when the latter stopped to help him while he was pretending to have car trouble.
Austin criminal lawyer Jon Evans had asked the jury to consider that mental health issues have been at play during the incident.
Lovings had told the police after his arrest that he had heard voices.
Aside from Ervin's death, Lovings is also facing charges of robbery and attempted murder.
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.
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.
