    NEW YORK (AP) — Basketball star Maya Moore has married Jonathan Irons, the Missouri man she helped work to free from prison after a 22-year-old wrongful conviction. Moore and Irons appeared together on ABC's “Good Morning America” on Wednesday to discuss their social justice efforts — and their relationship. Moore revealed that the two married this year, shortly after Irons was released on July 1. Moore, a two-time Olympian who won four WNBA titles with the Minnesota Lynx, put her career on hold in 2019 to focus on ministry work, criminal justice system reform and the specific case of Irons, who was sentenced to 50 years in prison in 1998 as an 18-year-old on burglary and assault charges. The case stemmed from a non-fatal shooting of a homeowner in the St. Louis area when Irons was 16, but a county judge ruled on March 9 that his defense provided enough evidence to prove his wrongful conviction. After Moore learned of his case and helped take up his cause, she and Irons developed a friendship on frequent visits to the prison....

    A toxic mix of progressive bail reform and social justice-pushing liberals has given one of the Big Apple’s most prolific burglars plenty of time to ply her trade during the coronavirus pandemic–helping her to stroll out of jail nearly a half dozen times in the past six months. Transgender career criminal Solomon “Aliana” Lambert has been arrested at least five times since April in connection to a staggering 17 burglaries in some of Manhattan’s priciest zip codes, police told The Post. Lambert, 38, whose criminal record includes at least 60 arrests, allegedly targeted mailboxes in scores of buildings from Gramercy Park to the West Village, with a keen eye for high-priced laptops and other techie must-haves, police said. She was a one-woman crime wave — with more burglary charges than anyone else in Gotham since April, according to NYPD stats obtained by The Post. Any time she got in trouble with the law, Lambert got out with help from her left leaning ‘friends.’ Among them was Molly Crabapple, a writer and artist regularly featured in the New York Times and...

    By ALISSA ZHU, The Clarion Ledger JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — In February 2017, among hundreds of emails and calls about story ideas received by the reporters of American Public Media’s podcast “In the Dark,” was a short email from a Mississippi woman. She urged them to look into the case of Curtis Flowers, a man who had been tried six times for the same crime. The evidence against him was questionable, she said. The investigative team was immediately interested, Madeleine Baran, host and lead reporter of “In the Dark,” said. How was it possible, they wondered, that a man could be tried so many times for the same crime? This set off the investigation that would change Flowers’ life. New evidence uncovered by “In the Dark” helped get Flowers’ case dismissed on Friday (Sept. 4), more than 23 years after his arrest. After the news broke last week, Flowers removed his ankle monitor with the knowledge that he would never again have to face trial again in the case of a 1996 quadruple homicide at a furniture store in Winona....
    Army Delta Force soldier Sgt. Major Thomas "Patrick" Payne was awarded the Medal of Honor from President Donald Trump on Friday, for risking his life several times during a mission in Iraq that liberated more than 70 hostages from ISIS. ABC News pointed out that "the Army Ranger received the nation's highest award for heroism on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks that prompted him to join the Army right out of high school." What are the details? In October of 2015, Delta Force conducted a raid in northern Iraq at a compound where ISIS was holding civilians. Payne was on his 14th deployment at that time, and according to Fox News, he recalled to the Army later, "My team was responsible for one of the buildings that the hostages were being held in. What was significant is that there were freshly dug graves. If we didn't action this target then the hostages will probably be executed." Before presenting the Ranger with the prestigious award, President Trump told the story...

Godley hit the market when the Tigers released him Monday. © Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Zack Godley, who was released by the Tigers on Monday, is drawing interest from a number of clubs including the Red Sox.  It’s no surprise that the Red Sox are seeking pitching help, considering the issues facing their staff. The team’s rotation won’t have ace Chris Sale, who’s recovering from Tommy John surgery, while de facto No. 1 starter Eduardo Rodriguez is questionable for Opening Day as a result of a positive COVID-19  test. At the moment, then, the club is perilously low on proven starters after Nathan Eovaldi and Martin Perez, who each come with plenty of question marks in their own right. Of course, Godley’s also no sure bet...

    A Missouri man was freed from prison Wednesday after a county prosecutor declined to retry his case, punctuating years of work by WNBA star Maya Moore and other supporters who argued he was falsely convicted of burglary and assault charges. Moore was one of the first people Jonathan Irons, 40, saw when he was released. The 31-year-old Moore, a Jefferson City, Missouri, native starred at UConn before helping lead Minnesota to four WNBA titles. She met Irons through a prison ministry in 2007.
