    Judging from the color of his duds, Anthony Weiner is already preparing for prison life. The disgraced ex-pol was spotted Monday on a downtown 4 train in an orange v-neck sweater and rust-colored slacks with hipster-style sneakers. He was wearing ear buds attached to his phone and seemed solemn.

  • Canada prison escapees caught by police in escape room

    Two Canadian women who escaped prison ran out of luck when they were cornered by police at a jail-cell simulation for thrill seekers. The women fled an Edmonton, Alberta, prison on Monday, but were arrested the next day at a so-called escape room. Police traced them to the facility, where people pay to solve puzzles that will unlock the doors of mock dungeons. Despite their practical experience, the fugitives were unable to pull off another escape. Kelsie Laine Marie Mast, 23, and Samantha Faye Toope, 20, jumped a fence at Edmonton Institution for Women on Monday. Police said they were...

    A 23-year-old man who threw burning flares into a Portland police cruiser and the downtown Target store during May 1 protests that overran downtown Portland admitted guilt Monday and will be sentenced to five years in prison. A local TV station aired live footage of Damion Zachary Feller hurling a flare through a shattered picture window at Target, prompting employees to run with fire extinguishers to put out a burning section of carpet. TV and cellphone cameras also caught Feller throwing a flare through the shattered window of a battered police SUV parked across the street from Target, at Southwest...

    Anthony Weiner is going to do hard time in Federal prison, but he might literally have more friends there than he has had while living in the Union Square building with his son, Jordan, 5. It is hard to believe that his ex-wife, Huma Abedin, would still allow him to have contact with his son after his sexting a young girl with the little boy next to him in bed. Poor Anthony. It had been reported no one spoke to him in his apartment building, and some refused to ride with him on the elevator. He was truly ostracized, but...

    Former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner is more than a serial digital philanderer — he's a danger to the public who deserves two years in prison for encouraging a 15-year-old girl to engage in online sex acts, prosecutors told a judge Wednesday. A Manhattan judge is scheduled to sentence the New York Democrat on Monday for transferring obscene material to a minor. "This is not merely a 'sexting' case," prosecutors wrote. "The defendant did far more than exchange typed words on a lifeless cellphone screen with a faceless stranger. ... Transmitting obscenity to a minor to induce her to engage in...

    Michelle Jones was released last month after serving more than two decades in an Indiana prison for the murder of her 4-year-old son. The very next day, she arrived at New York University, a promising Ph.D. candidate in American studies. In a breathtaking feat of rehabilitation, Ms. Jones, now 45, became a published scholar of American history while behind bars, and presented her work by videoconference to historians’ conclaves and the Indiana General Assembly. With no internet access and a prison library that hewed toward romance novels, she led a team of inmates that pored through reams of photocopied documents...

    Hillary Clinton was stunned when then-FBI Director James Comey reopened the agency's investigation into her private email server just days before the 2016 election, she told TODAY on Wednesday in her first live interview since the race. "I thought what is he doing … the investigation is closed," Clinton said about Comey's Oct. 28 letter that reintroduced his agency's probe of her emails. "I was just dumbfounded," she added. "It became clear this was not necessary, he could have called me up."

    More than five years into his 14-year sentence on corruption convictions, Rod Blagojevich, who once held the highest office in Illinois, finds himself on cleaning duty at a Colorado federal prison. "I've been given the jurisdiction to sweep and mop two floors," he said in an interview with WMAQ-TV in Chicago from prison released Monday, along with an interview in Chicago magazine. "So my jurisdiction has shrunk from the fifth biggest state in America, to these two floors. But I don't care what anybody says, I believe in clean government, and I believe in clean floors."

    Anthony Weiner might have more friends in prison than he does now in the Union Square building where he’s been living with his son, Jordan, 5. The former congressman goes to the apartment tower’s gym most days wearing ear buds. “Nobody speaks to him. He is truly ostracized,” one source told me. “People won’t even get on the elevator with him.” Most of Weiner’s neighbors were Hillary Clinton supporters, and blame him for her loss because former FBI Director James Comey reopened the investigation into her e-mails after the feds seized Weiner’s computer. Weiner will be sentenced Sept. 8 in...

    Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was released from prison on Monday after serving 13 months for lying to federal investigators about money used to hide sexual abuse charges. In May 2015, Hastert was charged with felony counts of illegal bank structuring and lying to the FBI. In October 2015, Hastert pleaded guilty to those charges before admitting in April 2016 he sexually molested teenage boys while coaching wrestling at Yorkville High School in Illinois. A federal judge chastised Hastert for his behavior and sentenced him to 15 months in prison, which he did not appeal. His anticipated release date had...

    ISTANBUL — I have been a member of Turkish Parliament representing Istanbul for the opposition Republican People’s Party for the past six years. It has forced me to become a specialist in the Turkish prison system as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (A.K.P.) government has increasingly persecuted politicians, activists, professionals and all sorts of citizens who oppose his rule and arrested thousands after the failed coup attempt last July. I began by visiting five political prisoners in 2011. Now I visit over 50, who form a tiny fraction of the detainees. Among those I visit are journalists...

Authorities had initially reported five deaths, but later raised the toll more bodies were found scattered throughout the prison. Robert Alvarez Heredia, the Guerrero state security spokesman, said in a statement that the fighting broke out around 4 a.m. He said security forces later regained control and slowly began discovering bodies in a kitchen, a cellblock and other areas.
