Jury convicts man of killing ex-girlfriend
Wade Bradford's defense did not convince the jury as they found him guilty in the shooting death of Natalie Allan.
Bradford and Allan had met when Allan worked in one of Bradford's massage parlors. While they were dating, Allan was also dating Kevin Myles, her massage client.
During the trial, the prosecutors told the court that Bradford had shot Allan when she broke up with him and she and Myles had gone to Bradford's place to get her things.
This was countered by Phoenix defense lawyer Jamie Jackson saying that Bradford did not know that he had shot Allan.
According to Jackson, the gun accidentally went off because Myles had suddenly lunged at Bradford.
The jury, however, did not buy this.
Aside from Allan's death, Bradford is also facing charges for the death of another of his former girlfriend, Eleanor Su.
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.
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.
Murder charge dismissed in shooting death of man from Trussville
The murder charge filed against Freddie Earl Patton,53, for the shooting death of his girlfriend's father, Kenneth Millar, 81, has been dismissed upon the request of the Deputy District Attorney.
An order for Patton's release from jail has been signed, however, he may not be off the hook yet as the DA's office has stated that the case will be turned over to the grand jury in Jefferson County.
The prosecution moved for the dismissal after arguing with the defense who wanted to further question the detective about the autopsy report.
Birmingham criminal attorney John Lentine said that a manslaughter charge should have been filed instead of murder because the shooting was an accident.
If Patton gets indicted, he will have to go back to jail.
Man avoids manslaughter conviction
Donnell Deshawn Stean was cleared of manslaughter charges for the death of Bernard Howard Jr. whom he shot during an altercation.
The jury had found that Stean had only shot Howard in defense.
Howard was found to have more than the legal limit of alcohol in his blood while Stean had tested positive of an ingredient found in marijuana.
Howard was one of the people whom Stean found in his apartment when he went home on the night of Nov. 3. They were drinking and helping out a roommate of Stean's who was moving out.
The group got upset when Stean hit an older man who was also living in the apartment.
Howard had punched Stean, who retaliated by pulling out his gun.
Sacramento defense attorney Alan Whisenand said his client, Stean, had felt threatened by the group thus his actions.
Stean was also cleared of seriously wounding the female roommate's brother during the incident.
