    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...
    By Larry Neumeister | Associated Press NEW YORK — Convicted pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli was freed Wednesday from prison after serving much of a seven-year prison sentence for lying to hedge fund investors and cheating investors in a drug company. His attorney, Ben Brafman, said Shkreli, 39, was released early from a prison in Allenwood, Pennsylvania. The move was confirmed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons. “I am pleased to report that Martin Shkreli has been released from Allenwood prison and transferred to a BOP halfway house after completing all programs that allowed for his prison sentence to be shortened,” Brafman said.

    The owner of a New York City recreational gym for children told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday that “we can't hold on much longer” following nearly three months of being shut down due to coronavirus. “It's kind of devastating what's happening to small businesses in New York,” said Sarah Brafman, the owner of Gymies Gym in Brooklyn. The single mother of two young boys made the comments as New York City began the first phase of its reopening plan this week. CORONAVIRUS IN THE US: STATE-BY-STATE BREAKDOWN As a hotbed for the virus, New York City has lagged behind other regions in New York in the reopening process. Nonessential industries permitted to reopen under Phase 1 include construction, agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting, retail (limited to curbside or in-store pickup or drop off), manufacturing and wholesale trade, according to the state’s official website. Host Ainsley Earhardt noted that Brafman’s gym is not eligible to reopen until New York City enters Phase 4. Brafman said that even though some small businesses in New York City received forgivable loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP),...
