    A Hudson Valley man who admitted to taking part in an armed cocaine robbery and later smuggling a loaded gun into jail will spend more than two decades in federal prison. Northern Westchester resident Deejay White, age 45, of Chappaqua, was sentenced to 21 years behind bars Thursday, Sept. 22, in federal court in Manhattan. It came over a year after White pleaded guilty in July 2021 to charges of armed robbery, conspiring to smuggle contraband into a federal detention facility, and possession of a firearm while incarcerated. Federal prosecutors said White and four co-conspirators got wind that a Puerto Rico-based drug trafficking organization was set to receive a large amount of cocaine at a Bronx apartment in May 2019. The 176 kilograms, or 330 pounds, of cocaine was to be concealed in furniture. Accompanied by his wife and young child, White admitted that he drove to the apartment, where the four others forced their way in and held 10 victims, including four children, at gunpoint. Two victims were pistol-whipped during the robbery and a third suffered serious...
    The Hamptons hit-and-run driver who mowed down an 18-year-old man could finally be chucked in jail in the coming weeks, the victim's lawyer has told DailyMail.com. Daniel Campbell, 20, could get 90 days in prison for striking and killing  Devesh 'Devu' Samtani in Amagansett on August 10, 2021, attorney Benjamin Brafman said. He told how the devastated family were hopeful the sentence will be brought down on the defendant next month. It comes less than a month after DailyMail.com revealed Campbell had a string of previous driving offences before mowing down Samtani. They included speeding tickets days before the fatal crash, a head-on collision and even having his license stripped from him. Samtani had been walking along Old Stone Highway with his cousin Kabir Kurani, 18, and their friends trying to get service to get an Uber back home. But he was hit by Campbell - driving a Honda Pilot packed with nine passengers - so hard he flew 6ft into the air, with his shoes flying off his feet. Campbell allegedly then drove off and left the economics student to die on the...
    The View co-hosts laughed out loud mocking former President Donald Trump for saying that documents can be declassified “even by thinking about it.” Thursday’s The View played a soundbite of Fox News host Sean Hannity’s Wednesday interview with Trump, who defended taking classified documents to Mar-a-Lago, which was raided by the FBI last month over Trump and his people allegedly not handing them back over to the National Archives in a timely manner and over the fear that sources and methods could be put at risk. “If you’re the president of the United States you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago or to wherever you’re sending it, and it doesn’t have to be a process,” he said. After playing the soundbite, co-host Whoopi Goldberg looked like she was meditating. “What are you doing, Whoopi?” asked co-host Joy Behar. “I’m thinking him into jail,” Goldberg said after a couple of moments, prompting laughter from her co-hosts. “You can just think about stuff,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “Just think about…,”...
    by J.D. Davidson   Ohio plans to spend an additional $51 million to renovate and build jails across the state in an effort, Gov. Mike DeWine says, to create environments that reduce recidivism. The money comes on top of $45 million the state handed out a year ago to six local jails for major construction projects. Also, another $5 million went to smaller projects at six other sites. “Our continued investment in Ohio’s local jails is a public safety investment that benefits everyone involved,” DeWine said. “This funding will go a long way toward creating safer and more secure jails for Ohio’s communities.” The funding is part of the Ohio Jail Safety and Security Program the General Assembly included in the state budget. The program offers grants for construction, renovation and other infrastructure projects at county jails. DeWine said the goal of the program is to help local jails reduce recidivism by creating what he says are environments that influence positive change. This includes renovations and new construction that meet the demands of the modern criminal justice system, helping...
    A former Los Angeles County sheriff’s custody assistant pleaded no contest to Friday to charges that he attempted to smuggle methamphetamine into the Men’s Central Jail in 2018, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office said. Jose Flores, 43, pleaded to a felony count of attempting to bring an illegal substance into the jail and was immediately sentenced to two years of formal probation and 300 hours of community service. “Someone who tries to smuggle drugs into a jail is betraying the public’s trust and creates an unsafe environment,” Dist. Atty. George Gascón said in a news release. The charges stem from a November 2018 bust in which investigators found 100 grams of meth inside Flores’ car in the jail’s parking structure near downtown L.A. Charges against Flores were not filed until Nov. 2021, three years after the bust. Custody assistants are not sworn members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department but help patrol county jails and supervise inmates.
    The fired prison guard accused of taking bribes from male prisoners for access to the women's wing where they would assault female inmates insists:  'I'm innocent – and I was set up.' David Lowe, 29, shook violently and broke down sobbing as he told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview he was 'coerced into a false confession' because he 'feared for his safety' during questioning by a senior detective from Clark County Sheriff's Office in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The former corrections officer faces felony charges and two civil lawsuits by a total of 28 women who claim they were subjected to horrific sexual assaults – including two rapes – after Lowe agreed to hand over keys to the secure area of the county jail in exchange for $1,000.  The criminal charges carry a maximum sentence of nine-and-a-half years in prison.  Clark County Sheriff Jamey Noel, the sheriff's department and other unnamed jail officials are also being sued over the 'night of terror' on the part of 'multiple male detainees' that allegedly took place in October 2021.

    Ghislaine Maxwell has asked to serve just four years and three months in jail when she is sentenced later this month - and claimed she is getting death threats in prison. Maxwell should serve substantially less than the 50 year maximum sentence at the hearing on June 28, her lawyers claimed in court documents published Wednesday They said that the higher sentence would be ‘absurd’ and that Maxwell does not present a ‘containing danger to the public’ The filing said that Maxwell’s ‘life has been ruined’ and an inmate in her prison said the extra 20 years in jail would be worth it for the ‘money’ they would get for killing her. It also revealed that her marriage to tech tycoon Scott Borgerson, 46, had foundered as a result of the scandal and disgrace heaped upon her after she was arrested for child sex abuse.  And the filing detailed a letter sent to the court from Maxwell's brother Philip and sister Anne. It said abuse she'd suffered at the hands of their newspaper tycoon father Robert Maxwell had ultimately left...

    OAKLAND — In a plea deal with federal prosecutors, a Bay Area woman admitted to selling fentanyl inside Santa Rita Jail, which led to the overdose death of an incarcerated woman, court records show. Kameron Reid, 37, admitted to possessing fentanyl for distribution and causing the death of Lee Esther Anderson, a 41-year-old woman who died after taking a dose of fentanyl that Reid provided her, according to court records. Reid has been released from custody since January, a month after she was charged in federal court, but has agreed to surrender Friday. Reid is set to be sentenced in October by U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, a federal judge with a reputation for showing compassion to defendants who come before him. The criminal complaint against Reid, written by an FBI agent, states that another incarcerated woman told authorities that Reid gave her and Anderson fentanyl that didn’t have any effect, so she promised to give them another dose she referred to as the “big dog.” Reid allegedly smuggled the drugs around the jail by hiding them in a body...

Rosendo Avila Aguilar  Rosendo Avila Aguilar pleaded no contest to a felony charge of drunk driving causing injury, with an added criminal enhancement for causing great bodily injury.

    There are new fears in Russia that an historian who robbed the graves of 29 young girls and lived with their mummified corpses will be released from custody. Anatoly Moskvin, 55, turned the dead girls into 'dolls', dressing them in stockings, clothes and knee-length boots.  He also applied lipstick and face make-up on the corpses.   The highly-educated bodysnatcher - an expert on cemeteries and former military intelligence translator - marked the birthday of each of his dead victims in his bedroom in chilling rituals. Until now, courts have repeatedly refused to release him, but psychiatric medics are now reported to insist there is no medical reason to keep him in secure accommodation. Parents of the dead children have pleaded to keep him behind bars for the rest of his life, fearing he will return to his sinister old habit which saw him living with some children's remains for up to ten years. But multiple reports including by Vesti and Komsomolskaya Pravda say a new diagnosis aims to end his incarceration in a special hospital which has lasted for more than...

    Disgraced Empire actor Jussie Smollett has been moved out of a jail psych ward - where it's been alleged he was sleeping on a 'restrained bed' - and into a regular cell to serve the remainder of his 150-day sentence, his brother says.  Jocqui Smollett took to his brother's Instagram Monday night for a 'day five update' on his status in jail, just days after his sentencing hearing for lying to police about a 2019 racist attack that he was convicted of paying for and setting up. In the statement, he even went so far as to say the seemingly routine prisoner movement was the result of a groundswell of support for the hoaxster - and that the Cook County, Illinois, facility where he is being held is reeling from 'bad publicity.'  'So I just got to see him,' he said. 'Thank you so much for the support, all the hashtag #FreeJussie, it's working. He's now been moved to a new jail cell out of the psych ward that has a bed.  'Before he was sleeping on a restrained bed and now...
    Five days into his 75 day jail sentence, Jussie Smollett is now complaining that he is at risk of COVID in jail and is worried about his mental health so should be let out early.  Smollett, 39, is being held in the medical unit of the Cook County Jail.  His family say he is being held in the psych ward and that there's a note on the door of his cell saying he is at risk of self-harm - which they insist isn't true.

    CHICAGO -- On New Year's Eve, Cook County Jail correctional officers removed a sick man from a tier inside Division 9, one of the jail's maximum-security facilities, according to several men detained there. They weren't surprised when jail staff quarantined them soon after taking the man away. He had been coughing for days, they said. The surprise came when the quarantined men realized that the jail's health care provider didn't plan to have them immediately tested for COVID-19.Tommie Davis was there. Davis, 59, remembers wrestling with mounting fear and uncertainty as days passed and more people on his tier appeared sick. There was no way for him to know for sure who might have COVID-19, he said. At least six detainees said staff never administered tests to people on the tier during their seclusion. After approximately six days, Davis said they were let off quarantine without a test."It's just terrible," Davis said in a phone interview from the jail. "This is like being in hell. Not jail - hell."Spokespeople for the Cook County sheriff's office and Cook County Health, the...
    A three-month investigation into the smuggling and distribution of contraband at the Riverhead Jail on Long Island led to charges for three inmates and five visitors who were allegedly a part of the conspiracy, authorities announced. Investigators from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office announced the bust on Tuesday, Jan. 25 that resulted in a total of 25 felonies and 12 misdemeanor charges for trafficking drugs through jail visits and the US Postal Service. Charges include conspiracy, criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal sale of a controlled substance, promoting prison contraband, and criminal facilitation.

It is alleged that they then used the US Postal Service and civilians visiting inmates in an attempt to get the contraband into the facility before it was intercepted by Sheriff’s Office investigators. “Through surveillance, searches, and detailed investigatory work, these investigators were able...
    One at a time, our warders led us into a makeshift infirmary where men in lab coats were waiting. There was no choice.  I was told by one of the superintendents: ‘You must be vaccinated. You’re 50 years old. Your immune system isn’t what it used to be. If you don’t do this, you might get the flu.’ Terrified of reprisals if I didn’t agree, I signed a document giving my permission. One of the men jabbed the vein in my arm. I was so stupid. I had been a prisoner in a Xinjiang ‘re-education’ camp for a year. The only horizon I had was the line of barbed wire that cut us off from the rest of the world. Other women in the internment camp had told me that their periods had stopped shortly after such ‘vaccinations’. The younger women wept and grieved. They had hoped to start families once they were released from the camp. Past the menopause myself, I tried to comfort them, though a horrific thought was already growing inside me: were they sterilising us? Now,...

    "Family and friends participate in a demonstration to advocate for the release of Cesar Elizarraraz outside of the Chicago ICE Field Office on June 9, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois." The Plymouth County, Massachusetts, sheriff's office announced last fall that it would be ending its agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This is a major step forward: The 287(g) program, which allows local law enforcement to act as federal immigration agents, is a discriminatory and flawed policy that the Justice Department said has resulted in racial profiling. But in a major step back, immigrants detained at a facility managed by the sheriff’s department are alleging abuses, and retaliation by staff for reporting those abuses, U.S. Sens. Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren wrote in a Jan. 3 letter to the Biden administration. They call on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and acting ICE Director Tae Johnson to open an immediate investigation. Markey and Warren write that attorneys, advocates, and family members “have raised serious concerns” over the treatment of immigrants detained at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility (PCCF), “including detainees’ lack of access to food and hot...
