    No defendant being impeached in any trial should be subjected to this level of legal uncertainty It is remarkable to contemplate that even something as basic as the standard of proof required to convict President Trump cannot be agreed on between the House Managers and the President’s legal team. What then should be the standard of proof necessary for the House Managers to establish to convict the President of the alleged crimes for which he has been impeached: abuse of power and obstruction of justice? Should it be the criminal standard—proof beyond all reasonable doubt. or the civil standard—proof that...

    I hereby accuse your bank, or one if its functionaries, of altering the original document, which is a crime in the State of Rhode Island, and then recording the altered document in the Narragansett Rhode Island Registry of Deeds for the sole purpose of illegally foreclosing on Mr. Brady's property. This too is a crime. I hereby impute this crime to you as the Captain of the Ship that is Bank of America. This is but a small sampling of the documentation that I have amassed in this file, but I am certain, that as an educated man, in charge...

    A defense lawyer is calling for calm after death threats have been made against teenagers charged in the death of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after she was allegedly bullied by schoolmates. "Not to minimize what happened to Phoebe Prince in any way, but translating this into death threats and public harassment has got to stop," says Colin Keefe, who represents Sharon Chanon Velazquez, accused of tormenting Prince, who hanged herself on Jan. 14. "It's gotten way out of control," adds Keefe, who says Velazquez has been driven temporarily from her home.

    The attorney for one of six South Hadley High School students accused of bullying Phoebe Prince in the months leading up to her suicide is asking for highly personal information about her, a move decried by a former prosecutor and victims advocates as “unconscionable.” In a six-page motion filed in Northampton Superior Court, Terrence M. Dunphy, the lawyer for Austin Renaud, asks for the names of any physicians, psychologists or rape counselors Prince saw; any medical and psychological records viewed by the prosecutor; details of any prior allegations of rape or abuse by Prince; and a statement as to whether...

    NEW YORK - A Houston oil trader with a minor role in the United Nations' oil-for-food scandal will not go to prison after admitting wrongdoing, a judge said Thursday. Ludmil Dionissiev, 61, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a smuggling charge for helping bring Iraqi oil into the United States in January 2001. In sentencing Dionissiev to two years of probation and ordering him to pay a $5,000 fine, U.S. District Judge Denny Chin called him the "least culpable" of those charged. Before he was sentenced, Dionissiev apologized, saying he knew what he was doing was wrong when he committed...

    An appellate court has denied a motion to reinstate Sen. Hillary Clinton as a defendant in a lawsuit that claims she, former President Clinton and others induced a former supporter to finance a 2000 fundraising gala. The 2nd District Court of Appeal upheld a lower court's decision to remove the New York senator and Democratic presidential candidate from a lawsuit filed by Peter Paul. The three-judge panel also said Clinton can recoup legal costs. Paul claims he spent more than $1.9 million to underwrite the lavish Hollywood fundraising gala in August 2000 that attracted Brad Pitt, Diana Ross and Cher....

    A federal judge today sentenced the last of four defendants indicted for voter registration fraud on the eve of the 2006 elections. Kwaim A. Stenson was sentenced to four months and five days, most of which he’s already served because his pre-trial release was revoked for illegal marijuana use. He’ll report to a half-way house in Springfield next week. “I’m sorry for all of this,” Stenson said before hearing his sentence. “I’m ready to get a new start on life.” The indictments against Stenson and three others sparked controversy earlier this year when critics charged that they were politically motivated....

    BOSTON --A judge refused to grant a mistrial Monday for a defendant who punched a juror as other jurors watched in court. Richard Glawson, 46, is on trial in Suffolk Superior Court for a list of charges stemming from a crime rampage in 2001 that allegedly included shooting a Dedham police officer in the hand. On Friday, as jurors were filing out of the courtroom at the end of the day, Glawson punched an elderly male juror in full view of the 15 other jurors hearing the case. The punch knocked the juror to the floor, but he was not...

    SANTA ANA - A federal agent testified Friday that investigators found a computer disk with sensitive details on the Navy's next generation of destroyers when they searched the home of a Chinese-American engineer accused of illegally sending technology information to China. FBI Special Agent James Gaylord said the CD was found at the home of Chi Mak after his arrest and it contained materials related to the so-called DDX, highly advanced guided-missile warships that are under development. The documents were sent by the Navy to companies during contract bidding, including the company Mak worked for, Power Paragon Inc. The company...

    NEWARK, N.J. - A London-based financial manager was sentenced Thursday to 24 months in prison for his role in a plot to smuggle shoulder-fired missiles into the U.S. to aid terrorists. Manthena Raja, 45, pleaded guilty in September to one count of money laundering. He admitted he facilitated two cash transfers from the U.S. worth $86,500 for British businessman Hemant Lakhani, even though he knew the money was for an illegal arms deal. Raja, an Indian citizen, had faced a sentence of between 37 and 46 months under federal guidelines, but the government recommended a lesser term because he cooperated...
  • Kobe Bryant's nameless accuser

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 08/22/2004 | Vicki Haddock
    Not naming Kobe Bryant's accuser is becoming almost pointless. As Bryant's trial is scheduled to begin this week in Eagle County, Colo., every major newspaper, newsmagazine, network and cable outlet still is keeping it taboo to release the name of the woman who reported the basketball star raped her. Even when bumblers in the courthouse inadvertently keep disseminating it to reporters covering the pending case and even when she filed a civil suit seeking monetary damages from Bryant under the name "Jane Doe." What the media have proceeded to do instead is to produce a paint-by- numbers portrait: her age,...

    <p>March 25, 2004 -- EAGLE, Colo. - Kobe Bryant's young accuser - her hair dyed red and her figure clearly heavier than when the scandal broke - confidently took the witness stand yesterday, going face-to-face with the NBA superstar for the first time since accusing him of rape last summer. The 19-year-old underwent nearly four grueling hours of questioning from Bryant's defense team about her past sexual relationships - but never broke.</p>

    Appeals court rules in Venegas' favor BY LAUREL ALMADA Times staff writer The Fourth Court of Appeals ordered that a Laredo man charged in a 12-year-old triple ax murder case must be released from custody or have his bond reduced Wednesday. The published opinion came as a result of Miguel Angel Venegas Jr.'s appeal of a decision rendered by visiting Judge Fred Shannon on March 5. Despite the order, the prosecution maintains Venegas cannot be released from the Webb County jail until the state has exhausted its appellate resources. The defendant is charged with three counts of murder and one...
