    A Hyattsville, Maryland, man pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges related to a fraud scheme involving CARES Act unemployment insurance money. Sylvester Atekwane, 32, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud in relation to his role in a scheme in which he and others collected the sensitive personal information of more than 600 people in order to fraudulently submit unemployment claims in their names.

    Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Former Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro pleaded not guilty on Friday to two charges of contempt of Congress over his refusal to comply with a subpoena from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Earlier this month, Navarro was indicted on the contempt of Congress charges. According to the Department of Justice: As detailed in the indictment, on Feb. 9, 2022, the Select Committee issued a subpoena to Navarro. The subpoena required him to appear and produce documents to the Select Committee on Feb. 23, 2022, and to appear for a deposition before the Select Committee on March 2, 2022. According to the indictment, Navarro refused to appear to give testimony as required by subpoena and refused to produce documents in compliance with a subpoena.

Navarro, formerly an advisor to the President on various trade and manufacturing policies, has been a private citizen since departing the White House on Jan. 20, 2021....
    Standing by the bar in a small Stamford Bridge hospitality suite was a figure who had had not been spotted at the stadium in three years: Roman Abramovich. Last November, the Chelsea owner was back in London at his English Premier League club to host the president of Israel. There was no obvious security entourage around the Russian billionaire and little fuss, just close associate and Chelsea director Euguene Tenenbaum. After making small talk with guests and posing for photos with President Isaac Herzog in front of the pitch, the party moved onto an afternoon tea event for around 50 people, with scones and cucumber sandwiches. Abramovich was feted with speeches praising his work through Chelsea to campaign against antisemitism. It looked like the gradual reintroduction of Abramovich into a more high-profile role around Chelsea again, attached to his social activism. There was, maybe, a British visa to be regained after he withdrew his application for a renewal in 2018. Then everything rapidly changed from Feb. 24 when Russia invaded Ukraine. Three months later, Abramovich is being replaced as...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge postponed a hearing Monday in a felony assault case involving two NFL players and two other men accused of severely beating a man at a Las Vegas nightclub the weekend of the Pro Bowl. Attorneys for New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons and two other defendants, Darrin Young and Percy Harris, asked for more time to review evidence recently turned over by prosecutors. The four men did not have to appear in court in person while Justice of the Peace Harmony Letizia set a new date Aug. 1. Each man remains free on bond. Police have said video evidence shows Kamara put his hand on the alleged victim’s chest to stop him stepping toward the elevator early Feb. 5 at the rooftop Drai’s nightclub. The man pushed Kamara’s hand away and Lammons punched the man. The man fell unconscious on the floor and the defendants allegedly stomped on his face, chest and legs, leaving him with facial fractures and injuries to his head, knees and arms. Kamara...

    The subvariant of the Omicron strain is the most dominant in New Jersey, and it is already the most prevalent strain in the US. The so-called "Stealth Omicron" strain was found in more than 70 percent of all sampled cases in New Jersey between March 13 and March 19, according to the state health department. From Feb. 6 to Feb. 12, the BA.2 subvariant was found in only 7 percent of the cases examined, the health department said. It is unlikely that the latest variant will result in another wave of cases or lockdowns, NJ Advance Media says citing health officials. The BA.2 subvariant has a faster rate of transmission than BA.1, the original Omicron strain, experts say, but it's not believed to cause more severe illness.

    Fairview police sought the public's help finding a North Bergen woman accused of participating in a robbery that left a victim severely bruised and battered. Maritza Santos, 24, has eluded authorities ever since the Feb. 23 incident on Fairview Avenue, they said. It began when a 32-year-old borough man sought a ride from her boyfriend, Andrew Melian, 24, on Feb. 23.

    Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich's superyacht Solaris, which has been sailing without a destination for more than a week, updated its status from "awaiting orders" to "scenic cruising" on Monday. The move suggests the $600 million vessel, which is off the southwestern coast of Turkey, has no plans to dock anytime soon. The 460-foot yacht headed for the safety of international waters last week after fleeing Montenegro waters, following a warning from the Balkan nation that it would mirror sanctions the European Union placed on Russia, President Vladimir Putin, and any oligarchs tied to him. Abramovich is among a growing list of Russian tycoons targeted in an effort to isolate Putin over his unprovoked invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24. The United Kingdom claimed that Evraz, the steel giant Abramovich owns, supplied materials to Putin for his tanks.

    RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Detected deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon reached a record high for the month of February following a similar record the prior month. Satellite alerts of deforestation in February corresponded to 199 square kilometers (77 square miles), the highest indicator for that month in seven years of record-keeping and 62% more than in the same month in 2021, according to preliminary data from the Brazilian space agency’s Deter monitoring system that were released on Friday. Deter data last month showed January registered 430 square kilometers of deforestation, more than quadruple the level in the same month last year. January and February are among the months that register the least amount deforestation, and pale in comparison to levels seen in the Southern Hemisphere’s summer months. Still, some have argued the uptick could be a worrisome sign for months to come, with loggers and legislators eager to make headway before a possible handover of presidential power next January. Deforestation has soared under President Jair Bolsonaro, who has been an outspoken champion of development in the...
