    An elected state’s attorney in Kentucky who admitted to getting a criminal defendant pregnant is now running to become a circuit judge. Matthew Leveridge, commonwealth’s attorney of Russell and Wayne counties, was never disciplined for having sex with with Latisha Sartain in 2014. After Sartain told Leveridge’s wife about the affair, Leveridge moved to rescind Sartain’s pretrial diversion agreement. Eight years on, he wants to be elected to higher office. Ken Upchurch, a Republican for the 52nd District in Kentucky’s House of Representatives, told the Louisville Courier Journal he was shocked to hear Leveridge was running to be a judge. “It’s like the church head deacon having an affair with the choir director, then wanting to be the preacher,” Upchurch said. Although concerns were raised that Leveridge’s actions may have constituted a breach of the Rules of Professional Conduct for lawyers, he has never been sanctioned by the Kentucky Supreme Court or charged with a criminal offense. Leveridge was the subject of a criminal investigation for allegedly having sex with jurors, however, court documents show. “A few years ago...

    Everyone deserves a good lawyer, even man's best friend, according to Richard Rosenthal, a man who represents dogs who people want euthanized.  Rosenthal most famously was able to get a Nevada mastiff named Onion off the hook after he killed his owner's 1-year-old son after the baby went up to the sleeping 120-pound dog and grabbed him.  After a nearly two-year legal skirmish, Onion was released to an out-of-state rescue thanks to Rosenthal, who was inspired to leave family and criminal law to work with animals. The child's grandmother, despite losing her grandson, was adamant that the dog not be euthanized. The county dropped the case rather than make the family appear in court. 'In Onion's case, it was an unfortunate accident,' Rosenthal told the Boston Globe. 'It was a horrible tragedy. But there was nothing vicious about it.'  The Long Island-based Rosenthal is extremely passionate, as the case of a Connecticut golden retriever named Buddy shows. The state wanted the death penalty for Buddy after he'd knocked down an older woman. The woman's son also wanted Buddy euthanized.  Rosenthal...

    ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A man who accosted U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin on stage as the Republican campaigned for governor will remain in custody while a federal judge considers his lawyer’s plea to release the Army veteran, who he said was in an alcoholic relapse. David Jakubonis, 43, faces a federal count of assaulting a member of Congress with a dangerous weapon for the attack July 21 in the Rochester area. The charge carries a potential maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. At a detention hearing Thursday, assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Eldridge argued Jakubonis should be held as a danger to the community who lunged at a congressman with a dangerous weapon. But defense attorney Steven Slawinski blamed the episode on a relapse triggered by a breakup with a girlfriend. Slawinski sought either probation with strict conditions or inpatient care. Jakubonis, he said, was an admitted alcoholic who sought treatment throughout his adult life. Judge Marian Payson said she would make a decision after considering whether Jakubonis’ actions last week were “aberrant” behavior and whether there is enough...
    by Debra Heine   The U.S. District Court judge who sentenced America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLD) founder Simone Gold to serve 60 days in federal prison for the misdemeanor offense of trespassing during the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot is allegedly a former acquaintance of the doctor. The past relationship raises questions about whether the judge should have recused himself. Gold, an invited guest speaker at the January 6 rally, was scheduled to speak after then-President Trump, but a number of speeches, including her own, were canceled at the last minute without explanation. According to Gold, the change set off a chain of events that resulted in her arrest for trespassing. Gold reported to federal prison on Tuesday to serve her 60-day sentence. In a statement obtained by American Greatness on Monday, Gold revealed that she and Judge Christopher R. Cooper attended Stanford University Law School in the class of 1993, and that she had once declined to go on a date with him. (Gold has degrees in medicine and law.) The doctor said she was surprised that Cooper, whom she knew as “Casey,” had...
    A judge in Ohio has ruled that Gerson Fuentes, the illegal immigrant accused of repeatedly raping and impregnating a 10-year-old girl, to be held without bond.  Fuentes, 27, is charged with two felony counts of rape of the child who traveled to Indiana for an abortion that became a flashpoint in the national debate over access to the procedure.  Judge Julie Lynch ruled on Thursday that Fuentes will be held without bond. He showed no emotion as he was led by deputies from the Columbus courtroom back to his jail cell. Fuentes, of Guatemala, was arraigned earlier this month and his bail was initially set at $2 million. He remains in the Franklin County Jail. The case drew national attention when an Indianapolis doctor said the child had to go to Indiana because Ohio banned abortions at the first detectable 'fetal heartbeat' after the United States Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling in June. Gerson Fuentes, 27, is charged with two felony counts of rape of a 10-year-old girl who traveled to Indiana for an abortion. A...

    OAKLAND — Two men have been ordered to stand trial on charges of murdering 75-year-old Pak Ho during a March 2021 robbery in Oakland, a crie that added to concern over violence targeting Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders. Teaunte Bailey, 27, and Demetrius Britton, 57, also known as Elbert Britton, were ordered to stand trial after a preliminary hearing before Judge Scott Patton. Both men have pleaded not guilty and a trial date has not yet been set. Ho, a widower who lived in the neighborhood where he was attacked, was out for a daily walk around 7 a.m. on March 9, 2021, when he was attacked and beaten. Authorities allege Bailey punched Ho, knocking him to the ground, and that Britton was the getaway driver. Britton’s attorney, David Briggs argued there wasn’t enough evidence to issue a holding order against his client. The lone eyewitness to the attack who testified said she couldn’t identity either man but gave a very general description, that both men were Black and one appeared to be in his 50s and the other appeared much...

    A teen accused of attacking an NYPD cop while free on bail asked a judge if he could press charges during a court appearance. The 16 year-old, who isn't being named, asked Judge Althea Drysdale if he could file charges during a court appearance in Manhattan Tuesday. But his response to a question about what accusations he'd like to make was inaudible. Tuesday's court hearing saw the teen respond 'Yes, your honor' to every question he was previously asked.   And NYC Mayor Eric Adams said the decision to free the boy on bail again had reduced Big Apple to a national 'laughingstock' over what critics say are woke bail laws that prioritize the wellbeing of suspects over crime victims.    The boy has now been released to a family center in Brooklyn, although he will be free to roam during the day, and summoned back each evening for a curfew.   Horrifying footage showed the 16-year-old punching the cop in the head before grabbing him around the neck and slamming him repeatedly into metal railings on Saturday.

    A Texan woman who opened fire inside Dallas's Love Field airport on Monday, bringing the bustling transit hub to a standstill, is a career criminal with a history of arson, bank robbery and trespass, who was declared mentally unfit to stand trial. Portia Odufuwa, 37, once told police she was 'God's prophet', and claimed she was married to rapper Chris Brown. She was ordered to attend mental health treatment sessions, but a judge decided in June 2021 she was not a danger to the public. On Monday, Odufuwa was shot by police after she pulled out a gun at the airport, aimed it toward the ceiling and fired several times. She was hit in the lower body and taken to hospital: no one else was injured in the chaos, but flights were suspended and the terminal evacuated. Hours later it emerged that Odufuwa was well-known to the police, with multiple run-ins with the law dating back to 2019. Portia Odufuwa, 37, is seen in a booking photo released on Monday by Dallas police, after she opened fire inside the airport...

    The son of a retried New York City Supreme Court judge who jumped to his death naked from his family's 16th floor apartment after beating his mother to death with a lamp was 'rudderless' after flunking out of college, where he'd been a hard-parting frat boy, friends have said.  Douglas Solomon, 26, was found dead and 'butt naked' in the street outside his family's Upper East Side apartment on Tuesday morning.

    A court order that keeps Louisiana authorities from enforcing a ban on most abortions remained in effect Monday after a judge asked for more information from both sides in a lawsuit over the state's 'trigger law.' State District Judge Donald Johnson said both sides have until Tuesday morning to submit their 'proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law' in the case.  Johnson is pondering whether to allow enforcement of the abortion ban that was written in anticipation of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the 1973 decision that established abortion rights.  Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry was drowned out by a series of hecklers during a Monday news conference when he declared that 'we will prevail and the rule of law will be upheld' After the historic Roe v. Wade decision, Louisiana was set to enact trigger laws that would have outlawed abortion in 10 days That decision came June 24 and abortion access in Louisiana has been flickering ever since with a series of on-again-off-again court rulings. In the meantime, Johnson said the temporary restraining order blocking enforcement of...

    New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore is currently at the centre of a state ethics probe which was launched before her announcement on Monday that she was going to be retiring. The investigation is examining weather married DiFiore, 66, interfered in the disciplinary hearing of Dennis Quirk, the New York State Court Officers Association president. Quirk, an outspoken critic of the judge, faced punishment after being accused of writing a letter to DiFiore threatening to post copies of a newspaper story about an alleged affair. She was accused of having a relationship with a police officer in 2013, when she was working as a prosecutor, behind the back of her husband Dennis Glazer.  The state Commission on Judicial Conduct is investigating whether the judge wrongly interfered in his disciplinary hearing by writing to the hearing officer demanding he be punished.

    A Mexican drug cartel accused in the brutal slaughter of nine women and children from an offshoot Mormon community must pay $4.6 billion to the families, a federal judge from North Dakota ruled. The family members of the victims filed a lawsuit accusing the Juarez cartel of carrying out the November 2019 attack in Mexico as retribution for their public criticism and protests against the cartel, but others have theorized that it was revenge for a gun deal gone bad. Cartel members fired hundreds of rounds of ammunition into vehicles and then set them on fire.  Mexican authorities said in 2020 that the mastermind of the attack was one of the 17 people arrested. Prosecutors have identified more than 40 suspects who they believed took part in the attack.

    An Alabama judge who belittled the state's governor over her age and gender and used a mock Asian accent in front of a jury pool was suspended from court duty and charged.  Mobile County Circuit Judge James T. Patterson was suspended on June 24 after the Judicial Inquiry Commission, which investigates complaints against judges, accused him of violating judicial ethics with a string of remarks about Republican Governor Kay Ivey and repeated profanity in court.  A judge since 2017, Patterson is a Republican who has referred to his remarks as bad jokes. He was charged twice Wednesday by the state's judicial commission: one of them being an inappropriate demeanor for his temperament, and the other being an abuse of judicial authority, according to NBC 15 News. Patterson referred to the 77-year-old Ivey as 'Gov.

The move came after the judge reportedly tried to prosecute various politicians for meeting and voting on legislative measures. This week, Nuevo Leon State Legislator Waldo Fernandez turned himself surrendered to a local office of Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office claiming he was there to face the consequences of having held congressional meetings and voted on various issues in direct violation of a judge’s orders. “I have not committed any crime,” Fernandez told Breitbart Texas. “I have only done my job, represent the people of my state.” According to Fernandez, he met with federal prosecutor Juan Lozano who told him that there weren’t any complaints against him and there were no complaints or open cases against him or other legislators in connection with the congressional issue. The incident began on June 4 when an unnamed federal judge from the Second District for Administrative Matters issued an injunction against the Nuevo Leon Congress to keep them from holding a...
    A judge in Brazil who banned an 11-year-old girl rape victim from having an abortion has been promoted. Judge Joana Ribeiro Zimmer, whose decision caused widespread outrage, was given a promotion after the Court of Justice decided that she was 'especially deserving'.

    The mother of an autistic boy who froze to death when his NYPD father made him sleep on a garage floor has been given the go-ahead to sue child protective services and school officials for $200million, a judge has ruled.  Justyna Zubko-Valva claims she had warned child protective services and administrators at her son's school that the eight-year-old Thomas was being abused by his father.  Her fears came true on January 17, 2020, when Thomas froze to death after his father, Michael Valva, locked him in a freezing garage as a form of punishment. Valva's girlfriend, Angela Pollina, allegedly participated in the abuse. Last week, an Eastern District of New York court advanced Zubko-Valva's lawsuit against numerous CPS officials for deliberate indifference, school officials from the East Moriches Union Free School District for wrongful death claims, and several attorneys for malpractice.  Valva and Pollina were charged with second degree murder in the death, and are currently awaiting trial. The case saw extensive delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic.    Michael Valva (left) and Angela Pollina (right), were charged with second degree murder...
    HOUSTON (AP) — A Texas judge on Tuesday denied a request by a district attorney who called capital punishment “unethical” to withdraw the execution date of a death row inmate whose case had raised legal questions about the role of spiritual advisers in the death chamber. On April 12, an order was signed setting John Henry Ramirez’s execution for Oct. 5. Ramirez’s execution had been put on hold several times, most recently after the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to review his challenge of state rules that would have prevented his pastor from touching him and praying aloud during his execution. But two days after a death warrant was issued, Nueces County District Attorney Mark Gonzalez asked for the order to be withdrawn, saying his office mistakenly requested an execution date. In a court motion, Gonzalez said he “has the firm belief that the death penalty is unethical and should not be imposed on Mr. Ramirez or any other person while (Gonzalez) occupies (his) office.” But during a court hearing over Zoom Tuesday, state District Judge Bobby Galvan...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Hundreds of Malaysian lawyers staged a protest Friday to condemn the anti-graft agency’s unprecedented probe of a senior judge who convicted former Prime Minister Najib Razak, calling it a threat to judicial independence. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission in April launched an investigation of Judge Mohamad Nazlan Mohamad Ghazali, following allegations of an unexplained sum of over 1 million ringgit ($227,000) in his bank account. Nazlan was the high court judge who sentenced Najib to 12 years in prison in July 2020 for corruption, and later was promoted to the Court of Appeals. Najib is appealing the case in the country’s top court after losing an earlier appeal. The Bar Council, which organized Friday’s rally, condemned the anti-graft agency for publicly announcing its investigation and naming Nazlan. It said the move was not in accordance with constitutional procedures and could shake confidence in judicial integrity. “We think that this particular unprecedented way of disclosure of the name of a sitting judge is actually an intimidation against the judiciary,” said bar president Karen Cheah. She said...
    The House select committee probing the January 6 Capitol attack will focus Thursday's hearing on the pressure campaign on Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. One of the witnesses for the third hearing will include retired federal judge J. Michael Luttig, who was involved in advising the vice president's team against claims he had the power to single-handedly block certification of the election results. Luttig, a Republican, will provide on Thursday condemnation of former President Donald Trump's pressure on his No. 2, who as vice president is the president of the Senate. Trump allies insisted that Pence had the ability to stop Congress from allowing Congress from certifying the states' Electoral College votes for Joe Biden to become president. 'It is breathtaking that these arguments even were conceived, let alone entertained by the President of the United States at that perilous moment in history,' Luttig wrote in a statement for the committee's record, which CNN obtained. Luttig said added that American democracy came to the brink last year and says Trump allies 'instigate' a war...

    A 66-year-old Virginia who robbed a Leesburg bank last year will spend the next four years in prison, Loudoun Now reported this week.  Kenneth W. Sencindiver pleaded guilty in March to robbing the M&T Bank on East Market Street, the newspaper said. The Winchester man approached a teller at the bank on Nov. 19 and handed her a note, prosecutors said during the trial.  It read: “I am armed; Give me all the money that’s in your drawer; do not put dye packs. I am not alone, there are people watching, they are ready to shoot or kill," WTOP reported in March. The teller gave him $525 but didn't follow his instructions. She included a dye pack in the bag of money that exploded as Sencindiver ran to his getaway vehicle in the parking lot that his son was driving, Loudoun Now reported.  Police arrested father and son two days later, after a multi-county car chase that ended at the campus of Patrick Henry College, WTOP said.  A judge sentenced him to four years in prison on Tuesday, June 14....
    The AL MVP Power Rankings have Aaron Judge and Jose Ramirez battling it out for the number one spot. In mid-June, the AL MVP Power Rankings have a pair of players pulling away from the rest of the contenders. Aaron Judge of the first-place New York Yankees and Jose Ramirez of the playoff-hopeful Cleveland Guardians are the two with the best chance to win it right now. It’s no surprise to see this pair at the top of the AL MVP Power Rankings. Judge was the runner-up in 2017 and last year finished fourth. If not for some injuries, he would have plenty more top ten finishes. Meanwhile, Ramirez has quietly put together a pair of third-place and a runner-up spot in the AL MVP race. He has done it with a mix of performances from his ball club. Missing the playoffs didn’t hurt Bryce Harper or Shohei Ohtani last year. It shouldn’t matter much for Ramirez this season if the Guardians miss out.AL MVP Power Rankings: Is Aaron Judge or Jose Ramirez the favorite right now?Play begins on Sunday...

    A 56-year-old career criminal is accused of zip tying and shooting dead the retired judge who sentenced him on armed burglary charges back in 2005.    Douglas K. Uhde, who was described as a loner and a big Donald Trump fan, is still in hospital after shooting himself following the murder of former Juneau County Judge John Roemer, 68, in his own Wisconsin home. Uhde, who has a criminal record dating back at least two decades and once even broke out of jail and went on run for a month before he was caught, was previously sentenced by Roemer to six years in prison and nine years of extended supervision for armed burglary charges.
