Bassem Awadallah, a dual Jordanian-US citizen and former chief of Jordan's royal court, and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid, a distant cousin of the king, were found guilty of incitement against the state and sowing sedition. Sharif Hassan was also found guilty on drug charges. Awadallah, a former finance minister, is also an aide to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Officials alleged that Prince Hamzah, a popular royal, led the plan and conspired with foreign entities. Hamzah, who publicly issued...

Putnam County resident Brian Flandreau, age 42, of Lake Carmel, was sentenced on Tuesday, May 11.

    WESTGATE, Iowa (AP) — A northeastern Iowa man is scheduled to be sentenced in April for the death of the 4-month-old nephew of his ex-girlfriend. Dean Alan Hettinger, 24, of Westgate, was convicted last week of first-degree murder and child endangerment. He faces life in prison, the Des Moines Register reports. The baby, Holten Smith, was being cared for by his aunt and Hettinger in April 2018 when he was abused. A search warrant said the couple took the infant to a hospital after he was found twitching, stopped crying and was unresponsive. He died about a month later. The search warrant said that doctors determined that the baby had bleeding in his brain after sustaining “non-accidental head trauma.” The complaint said the baby also had 36 rib fractures.

    A former Tekashi 6ix9ine pal who was caught partying at his apartment while he was on release from jail because of the coronavirus pandemic was ordered back into lockup by a federal judge on Monday. Manhattan federal court judge Paul Engelmayer ordered Kintea McKenzie, a/k/a “Kooda B,” to surrender to US Marshals at the courthouse no later than 2 p.m. on Oct. 15 at Monday’s hearing. McKenzie — who pleaded guilty to setting up the attempted shooting of rapper and gang rival Chief Keef in Times Square in 2018 — was caught on video partying with a group of people at his Brooklyn apartment soon after he was cut loose from the Metropolitan Correctional Center amid the coronavirus outbreak in April. That was in spite of social-distancing orders. On Monday, Engelmayer called the partying an “astonishing stunt” that showed McKenzie expose himself to conditions that were far riskier than anything he would come up against in a federal lockup. After he was made aware of the video in April, Engelmayer wrote that McKenzie could face additional prison time because of...
