    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been sent to a dreaded 'torture' prison notorious for sexual violence and brutal beatings, it has been claimed. The Putin foe had gone 'missing' from his previous jail but today it was claimed he had been moved to the strict regime maximum security penal colony at Melekhovo. The move to the jail hell is linked to the start of a new nine year sentence seen as politically motivated by the Russian opposition and the West.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A Louisiana appeals court has thrown out the 90-year prison sentence for a drunken driver who struck nine bicycle riders near a Mardi Gras parade route in March 2019, killing two of them. The state 4th Circuit Court of Appeal said the judge who sentenced Tashonty Toney failed to sufficiently spell out the reasons for handing out the maximum sentences following Toney’s guilty plea. Therefore, the ruling said, appellate judges could not adequately review Toney’s argument that the total sentence was excessive. The ruling, dated Wednesday, sent the case back to the criminal court in New Orleans for what the judge requested to be a “meaningful sentencing hearing.” Blood tests showed Toney was driving with a blood-alcohol level above .21 percent as he sped down New Orleans’ prominent Esplanade Avenue, which was bustling with auto, bicycle and pedestrian traffic after the popular parade of the Krewe of Endymion. Driving at speeds reaching 80 mph (nearly 130 kph), Toney veered at times into the bicycle lane, sending bicycles and their riders flying, court records...
    A dog crate where a 13-year-old New Mexico was forced to sleep and where he died in 2018 has been put on display by prosecutors, as his brother is sentenced over his torture and killing. Jeremiah Valencia was beaten within an inch of his life by his mother's boyfriend, Thomas Ferguson, who killed himself in Santa Fe County jail in 2018 while awaiting trial. But prosecutors said on Tuesday that it was the boy's brother Jordan Nuñez, 23, delivered the final blow that killed him at the family home in Nambé, north of Santa Fe in New Mexico. Prosecutors also showed a sledgehammer which was used to beat Valencia.  'Jeremiah became the target of those two men,' said District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies, according to the Albequerque Journal. 'Basically, anything that could be used to hurt a 13-year-old boy was used on Jeremiah.' Jordan Nuñez, 23 (pictured) faces 14 to 24 years for his role in the 2017 killing after he pled guilty last March to recklessly permitting child abuse resulting in death and two counts of tampering with evidence Although...

    GEORGE Floyd's family members called ex-cop killer Derek Chauvin's 22 ½  year prison sentence a “slap on the wrist” and Rev. Al Sharpton argued justice wasn’t served, and that “justice would have been the maximum.” “Twenty-two years is not enough," Floyd’s nephew Brandon Williams said, ripping the 45-year-old’s prison punishment downplaying the punishment as as far too light.

    A Long Island man who was convicted of driving drunk into a group of boy scouts, killing a 12-year-old boy, has been given the maximum sentence following a lengthy trial last year. Thomas Murphy, 62, of Holbrook, was sentenced to a term of 8 ⅓ and 25 years in prison on Wednesday, Sept. 30, two years after a crash in Manorville that took the life of seventh-grader Andrew McMorris of Wading River. Specifically, Murphy was found guilty last December by a jury of: Two counts of aggravated vehicular assault; Two counts of second-degree vehicular assault; Two counts of third-degree assault; Reckless driving; Manslaughter; Assault. Murphy had also been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, first-degree vehicular manslaughter, first-degree vehicular assault, and driving while intoxicated, though those charges were dropped when his lawyers argued that those charges require a driver have a blood alcohol content greater than .18 percent, and it was argued that Murphy’s was closer to .13 percent. Murphy was drinking with three friends at the Swan Lake Golf Course in Manorville in September 2018, before getting into...

    A new law increasing the maximum punishment for people convicted of animal cruelty from one year to five years took effect in Scotland this week, a month after the Scottish Parliament passed it unanimously. Animal rights groups widely praised the move Thursday, according to U.K. media. “We’ve long campaigned for many of the reforms contained in this new bill, including harsher punishments for animal cruelty,” Kirsteen Campbell, the CEO of the Scottish SPCA, told the Edinburgh Evening News. “We are hopeful increased sentencing and unlimited fines will act as a greater deterrent to people in mistreating animals.” TRUMP SIGNS BILL MAKING ANIMAL CRUELTY A FEDERAL CRIME Many other European countries already imposed a five-year prison sentence for animal cruelty crimes, the outlet reported, and animal charities had been lobbying for Scotland to do so, as well, for years. The old sentence of just one year was one of the shortest maximum sentences for animal cruelty on the continent, according to Battersea, a U.K.-based charity. In a news release, the nonprofit called the new law “a momentous day for animal welfare” and lauded the...
