    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...

The Massachusetts man now begins 10 years of supervised probation, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement. Shanley was one of a number of Catholic priests convicted of child rape, the fallout from an infamous Boston Globe investigation...

    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...

    Jay Z is continuing his fight against the criminal justice system by helping men who have been incarcerated but can’t get release due to exorbitant bail bonds. In an essay for Time magazine, Hov attacks the “exploitative bail industry” for their practices that he deems are unfair to black and brown people. “If you’re from neighborhoods like the Brooklyn one I grew up in, if you’re unable to afford a private attorney, then you can be disappeared into our jail system simply because you can’t afford bail,” Jay writes. “Millions of people are separated from their families for months at...

    Human rights defender and lawyer Eren Keskin stated that there is no legal basis for the isolation imposed upon Öcalan and stressed that this needs to end immediately and visits need to be arranged.   Kurdish People’s Leader Abdullah Öcalan has been held in İmralı Type F High Security Prison since February 15, 1999. The Turkish judiciary system is trampling their own laws as well as universal norms in the treatment of Öcalan, while international judicial institutions are also silent. One of the institutions that has turned a blind eye to the ongoing unlawfulness has been the European Court...

    In prison for a crime he adamantly denied committing, Richard Anthony Jones repeatedly heard from others that there was another prisoner who looked just like him. Not only were they doppelgangers, but Jones was told that he and the other man shared the same first name. Jones never ran across the man, but the lawyers he passed the information on to began digging into his case and came to the conclusion that Jones was indeed an innocent man. On Wednesday, they made their case to a Johnson County judge, and on Thursday Jones walked free after serving nearly 17 years...

    There's one other very interesting thing about this exchange. Lynch's improper behavior here was previously reported, via anonymous sources, back in April in the New York Times: At the meeting, everyone agreed that Mr. Comey should not reveal details about the Clinton investigation. But Ms. Lynch told him to be even more circumspect: Do not even call it an investigation, she said, according to three people who attended the meeting. Call it a "matter." Ms. Lynch reasoned that the word "investigation" would raise other questions: What charges were being investigated? Who was the target? But most important, she believed that...

    A former government prosecutor says the gang murders of Doug and Debbie London showed an unprecedented level of “contempt” in Charlotte for the rule of law. This week, the law strikes back. On Tuesday, the two Charlotte gang members who planned and carried out the Oct. 23, 2014 killings will be sentenced to life in federal prison without parole. The punishments for Jamell “Murda Mel” Cureton and Malcolm “Bloody Silent” Hartley were preordained in September when the pair pleaded guilty in the case to avoid a death-penalty trial.

    Two bills in California’s state Senate and Assembly could dramatically alter the state’s bail system, and in many cases, eliminate bail completely. Sen. Robert Hertzberg and Assemblyman Rob Bonta introduced identical bills to the Senate and Assembly called The California Money Bail Reform Act of 2017, which aims to reduce the number of people detained before trial. This month, the senate bill passed its first hurdle, the Senate Public Safety Committee. Advocates say the reforms to the bail system could help the more than 45,000 Californians currently awaiting trial or sentencing. With the most common bail amount set at $50,000...

    Accused of human trafficking, she was actually trying to improve the lives of street children I never lit into Barack Obama more viciously than I did the day we learned how Kayla Mueller died, and it still makes me angry when I think about it. Caught up in a hostage situation with Doctors Without Borders, this young American Christian woman was just trying to help others and hurting absolutely no one. But Obama not only refused to help her, he threatened to prosecute her family if they paid the ransom demanded for her release. So she was tortured and killed....

The center coincides with President Donald Trump's promised expansion of immigration detention, part of a crackdown on immigrants in the country illegally....
