Lawyer For Woman Shot By Police At U.S. Capitol Says Officers Should Be Criminally Prosecuted
They were severe and they were obvious and they definitely were not contrived,” Molfetta said. “With that being said, this was a guy who should have garnered the highest level of scrutiny and it wasn’t done.” Hallock declined to comment on inmate supervision or the attorney houston’s account except to say jail deputies are required, in general, to walk by each inmate’s cell a minimum of once an hour. “We always want to prove the case in court and have justice for the victims’ families,” said Susan Kang Schroeder, the district attorney houston’s chief of staff. Marie Middaugh, mother of victim Lloyd “Jimmy” Middaugh, said in a phone interview Friday that she was relieved to hear the news of Ocampo’s death. “A trial wouldn’t have brought our loved ones back,” she said. “I’m sorry things happened the way it did for his family because I know they’re grieving, too, but I’m just glad that really it’s all over.” Someone at a number listed for Ocampo’s father hung up repeatedly when a reporter called Friday. Prosecutors alleged that Ocampo, a native of Mexico, stabbed four homeless men in what they called a serial thrill-kill rampage in late 2011 and early 2012. Ocampo targeted his homeless victims because they were vulnerable and because he felt they were a blight on the community, authorities said. He was charged in January 2012 with four counts of murder, with special allegations of multiple murders, lying in wait and use of a deadly weapon. Three victims were stabbed more than 40 times each with a single-edged blade at least 7 inches long. In one instance, prosecutors, said, Ocampo selected as his next victim a homeless man who was featured in a Los Angeles Times story about the killings.

Lawyer charged in Rothstein fraud can practice law — under supervision
EST, November 29, 2013 A Broward lawyer houston, who was barred from working as an attorney houston while facing criminal charges that he helped Scott Rothstein’s Ponzi scheme, is now allowed to practice law so long as he is supervised by a colleague. Douglas L. Bates, 54, of Parkland , was arrested in August on one count of wire fraud conspiracy and three counts of wire fraud. He has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go to trial in late January in federal court in West Palm Beach. As a condition of his release on a $250,000 bond, a magistrate judge barred Bates from practicing law while the charges were pending, saying there was evidence he had “committed horrific breaches of his duties and responsibilities.” But Bates’ lawyer Leonard Sands said Bates still had obligations to the clients of his Plantation law firm and argued it was unusual and unfair to prevent him from working in his chosen profession because of unproven allegations. Bates initially handed over all his cases to Eric Berger, a lawyer who worked with him, and had Berger take control of Bates’ firm’s operating and trust accounts. “However, Bates still has clients that want to see him and talk to him [and] Bates has greater knowledge of the clients’ matters,” Sands argued in court filings. U.S. District Judge Donald M. Middlebrooks, the trial judge, agreed to reconsider the lower judge’s ruling.

You spoke to the police before they decided not to charge you? I dont understand, said the witness to several grunts of apparent frustration from Rogers, whose next question was: You know about the 12 pieces of silver Jesus was sold for? to which the witness said yes. Rogers was corrected by Campbell, who told him that Jesus was actually sold for 30 pieces of silver, which sparked laughter as the witness, decked in a white shirt and tattoos running down his left arm and on his fingers, stood with his head bowed, awaiting the next question. Did you receive any favour, any 30 pieces of silver for your story? Rogers asked. No sir, the witness said. But they didnt charge you, Rogers said. They never found [the gun], the witness said. Rogers then suggested to the witness that the police assisted him in making up a story against the men and that was why he wasnt charged for the gun he had buried, but the witness denied the suggestion. At another point during the cross-examination, Rogers pointed out some contradiction between the witnesss evidence and that given earlier by the sister of the deceased which include the time of the day he said he and the deceased ran to her yard on August 14, what she was wearing at the time and the amount of money she said she gave them both. The witness was also tackled about some inconsistencies between the evidence he gave during his examination-inchief and what he did or did not tell the police. During this phase, Rogers repeatedly asked the witness if he didnt see that he was lying, but the witness was quick with his two-word response: No, sir. Rogers said that the details are what present a problem with telling lies, but the witness insisted that he was telling the truth.

Moore after he pleaded no contest to six ethics violations filed by the Office of Lawyer Regulation. Moore was also ordered to pay the $1,254 in costs of OLR’s prosecution. The OLR’s complaint related to Moore’s handling of the 2010 case involving marijuana, and a couple’s effort to gain legal custody of their grandchild, a case Moore claimed he couldn’t properly finish because of his arrest on the marijuana charges. According to the court’s order, Moore, 58, told his 18-year-old client that the teenager’s home was about to be raided by police so he should bring any evidence of drug dealing to Moore’s office. The client turned over some pipes and other items. Moore then gave the client $400 with instructions to buy him an ounce of marijuana. The client made a contact with a source for the purchase. The client also told his parents, who confronted Moore, who first denied giving their son $400 and later tried to claim prosecutors wanted to see if the client could make a buy before considering using him as an informant in exchange for consideration on six pending charges. Moore pleaded no contest in 2010 to misdemeanor charges of conspiracy to possess marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was ordered to pay $1,939 restitution, according to online court records.

Lawyer: Ajax killed suspect in homeless slayings
The notice seeks a public apology for allegedly committing contempt of court by overlooking his arguments in the judgment. Advocate Satyaketu Singh, who has sent the notice, wants the reply within seven days. This notice, however, has not been endorsed by the Talwars, who are serving a life sentence after being convicted for the murders. Issuing a formal statement dissociating the couple from this notice, Talwar’s lead counsel, Tanvir Ahmad Mir, said, “This notice of contempt has been sent by Satyaketu Singh in his individual capacity without the authority, direct or indirect, of Dr Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar. The notice also does not have my consent as the lead counsel for the couple.” Singh was one of the counsel who appeared for the Talwars during the trial. In his notice, he has alleged that his final arguments in the case and Supreme Court and high court rulings submitted by him were “deliberately” ignored by the judge in the final order. “The fact that you did not even mention my arguments and rulings in your judgment is contempt of court,” the notice stated. Incidentally, judge Lal who delivered the final judgment after hearing the case for two years, retired on Saturday as a trial court judge. Speaking about the legal notice, advocate Singh also clarified that the notice has been sent to the judge in his individual capacity and that Talwars had no role in it.
