NJ judge slammed for pointing out accused teen’s ‘good family’ in rape case: report

Westlake Legal Group iStock-gavel NJ judge slammed for pointing out accused teen's ‘good family' in rape case: report fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-jersey fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 91661664-673c-589a-aa2c-8dab0f9b92c5

A New Jersey family court judge was reprimanded by an appeals court panel last month for refusing to try a 16-year-old boy accused of raping an intoxicated girl and sharing video of the alleged assault with friends as an adult because he was “from a good family,” and Eagle scout and attended an “excellent school,” reports said.

The 16-year-old boy identified only as G.M.C. in court documents allegedly raped a “visibly intoxicated” 16-year-old girl identified by the pseudonym “Mary” while the two were drunk at a pajama party in New Jersey, prosecutors said. The boy is accused of filming himself and sending the video out to friends for months after the assault.

FLORIDA MAN, 18, ALLEGEDLY DRUGGED, SEXUALLY ASSAULTED GIRL, 15, POSTED NAKED VIDEO OF HER ONLINE: POLICE

“When your first time having sex is rape,” G.M.C. allegedly texted friends with the video days after the party. Several of the friends told investigators Mary’s body was drooping during the assault, at least one adding that her head was also banging against the wall, The Hill reported. It was not clear in court documents where in New Jersey the alleged assault took place.

The Monmouth County prosecutor’s office recommended in September 2017 that G.M.C. be tried as an adult, describing his actions as “both sophisticated and predatory.”  But Judge James Troiano of Superior Court reportedly denied the waiver and scolded prosecutors for not explaining to the girl and her mother “the devastating effect” pressing charges would have on “G.M.C.’s life.”

“He is clearly a candidate for not just college but probably for a good college,” Troiano of Superior Court wrote. He added that the “young man comes from a good family who put him into an excellent school where he was doing extremely well.”

An appellate court reversed Troiano’s decision last month in a 14-page ruling only recently picked up by The New York Times and local affiliates. The panel sharply admonished the judge and warned against showing bias in sexual assault cases toward privileged teenagers, the Times reported.

“That the juvenile came from a good family and had good test scores we assume would not condemn the juveniles who do not come from good families and do not have good test scores from withstanding waiver application,” the panel wrote, according to The Huffington Post.

Nevada trooper pulls over hearse carrying corpse in carpool lane: police

A mortuary driver who was riding in a Las Vegas carpool lane Monday asked the Highway Patrol trooper who had pulled him over if the corpse he had in the back of his van counted as a passenger, police said.

The bizarre traffic stop happened after a Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper noticed the driver of a hearse on Interstate 15 in Las Vegas appeared to be riding alone.

The driver, whose identity was not released, asked the trooper whether the body he was carrying in the back qualified as a person.

“He doesn’t count?” the driver reportedly asked, referring to the corpse he was transporting.

“Yes, it’s a person, but they’re not in a seat and they’re not living and breathing,” the Trooper reportedly said. “This body was in the rear cargo and that doesn’t qualify as a seat.”

The trooper let the driver off with a warning and advised him to move out of the lane. The traffic stop came amid increased enforcement in carpool lane violations, Fox 5 reported.

Nevada Highway Patrol later issued a warning that passengers must be living, breathing people in order to be counted as occupants in cars using the high occupancy vehicle lane.

Pentagon calls missile test in South China Sea ‘disturbing,’ report says

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6054761934001_6054757798001-vs Pentagon calls missile test in South China Sea ‘disturbing,’ report says fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/politics/defense/pentagon fox news fnc/us fnc eeba8040-bdc7-590c-96cb-2bd6a83086fb article

The Pentagon on Tuesday said China’s decision to test-fire missiles in the South China Sea was “disturbing” and a U.S. official told Reuters that multiple anti-ship ballistic missiles employed in the test.

The U.S. has in the past denounced Beijing on what it sees as an effort to militarize man-made outposts in the region.

“I’m not going to speak on behalf of all the sovereign nations in the region, but I’m sure they agree that the PRC’s behavior is contrary to its claim to want to bring peace to the region and obviously actions like this are coercive acts meant to intimidate other (South China Sea) claimants,” Lieutenant Colonel Dave Eastburn, a Pentagon spokesperson told Reuters.

China considers control of the South China Sea as crucial to its foreign trade routes and aspirations to surpass the U.S. as the dominant military power in the Asia-Pacific region.

Fotis Dulos maintains innocence in first sit-down interview since wife’s disappearance

Westlake Legal Group Fotis-Dulos1 Fotis Dulos maintains innocence in first sit-down interview since wife's disappearance fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/connecticut fox-news/us/crime/cold-case fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 9be1518b-3b97-51f4-9775-80b0e29959c3

Fotis Dulos, a Connecticut real-estate developer charged in connection with the disappearance of his estranged wife Jennifer Dulos, maintained his innocence Tuesday during his first sit-down interview about the case, claiming he’s “worried” about his wife and never wished her “ill in any way.”

“I know what I’ve done, I know what I haven’t done,” the 51-year-old Greek immigrant told New York City’s WNBC-TV. “I have to stand and fight and hope that the truth is going to come out.”

“I know what I’ve done, I know what I haven’t done. I have to stand and fight and hope that the truth is going to come out.”

— Fotis Dulos, husband of missing Connecticut woman

Jennifer Dulos, 50, hasn’t been seen since dropping her children off at school in New Canaan, Conn., on May 24.

Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, are charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution and have been accused of disposing of items found in Hartford that contained Jennifer Dulos’ blood. The pair were released on $500,000 bond pending trial.

SISTER OF JENNIFER DULOS’ ESTRANGED HUSBAND SAYS HE’S ‘NOT THE PERSON THEY SAY HE IS’

“I had my differences with Jennifer like many people do when they go through a marriage. It didn’t work out for us, but that doesn’t mean that I wish her ill in any way,” Fotis Dulos said Tuesday. Jennifer Dulos filed for divorce two years ago, and the estranged couple had been involved in a contentious court battle up until her disappearance.

“I had my differences with Jennifer like many people do when they go through a marriage. It didn’t work out for us, but that doesn’t mean that I wish her ill in any way.”

— Fotis Dulos, husband of missing Connecticut woman

Despite the charges against him, Fotis Dulos said he has “faith in the system” but that he’s already been “convicted” in the minds of many.

“Statistically when this happens,” Dulos said, referring to a spouse going missing, “90 or 95 percent [of the time] it’s the spouse. ” Dulos claimed he belongs “in the 5 or 10 percent” of spouses who are innocent.

“[It’s] been a very tough time for the whole family. We’re all worried about Jennifer,” he said. “I’m worried very much about the kids and what they’re going through.”

The children, ages 8 to 13 and including two sets of twins, have been staying with Jennifer Dulos’ mother, Gloria Farber, in New York City. Both Farber and Fotis Dulos are seeking custody.

Fotis Dulos’ sister, Rena Dulos, who lives in Greece, spoke out for the first time Monday, defending her brother and insisting he’s incapable of having any involvement in Jennifer Dulos’ disappearance.

In a lengthy statement to Hartford’s FOX61, Rena Dulos said her brother desired to be a father and “sincerely craves to see his children and be an integral part of their upbringing.”

She also said her brother, who may have had “personal differences” with his estranged wife, “truly and sincerely holds her in his prayers” and wants “nothing more than to know that she is well and could ultimately return to their children.”

According to their arrest warrants, a couple whom police have identified as Fotis Dulos and Troconis were seen on video surveillance driving in Hartford around the time Jennifer Dulos was reported missing. The man was seen tossing garbage bags into more than 30 trash bins with items that were later determined to have Jennifer Dulos’ blood on them.

Fotis Dulos’ DNA was found mixed with his wife’s blood on a kitchen faucet in the New Canaan home where she lived with her children after the couple split, according to State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo. Police said the house also had evidence of blood spatter and cleanup attempts, according to the arrest report.

Prosecutors consistently hinted more charges were likely, but have yet to file any other counts. He is scheduled to appear in court again Aug. 2.

Woman dead, man rescued from rubble after North Carolina house explosion, fire officials say

A woman has died and a man suffered life-threatening injuries following a house explosion in North Carolina on Tuesday, fire officials said.

Firefighters said it took about seven hours to find the woman and about two hours to free the man from a home leveled by a fire in the Charlotte neighborhood of Ballantyne. They said the man managed to call 911 and alert rescuers to his location.

The Charlotte Fire Department tweeted on Tuesday, “One patient has been freed conscious & alert; patient turned over to @MecklenburgEMS & taken by helicopter to area hospital.”

Charlotte Fire Chief Reginald Johnson said the man called emergency operators to tell them he was trapped inside the shattered home. He told operators where he was in the home but did not say what caused the explosion, which happened around 1:50 p.m.

Fire officials said the man indicated a woman was inside the home at the time of the explosion as well, so firefighters spent hours trying to find her.

Firefighters conducted the rescue operation until they found the woman around 9 p.m.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released.  Fire officials also did not disclose the relationship between the two.

More than 80 firefighters were searching through the rubble on James Jack Lane on Tuesday, Fox 46 reported.

Fire officials said seven firefighters were treated at the scene for dehydration after spending hours in 90-degree temperatures searching for the victims.

The seven firefighters who were treated on scene with IV’s returned to duty, another firefighter suffering from dehydration was transported to a local hospital for treatment, according to a tweet from the Charlotte Fire Department.

Reports indicated firefighters were in full gear when they arrived on scene but were down to their T-shirts as they sifted through the rubble in the scorching heat.

Neighbors reportedly felt the impact of the blast. A next-door neighbor’s windows were blown out, the drywall cracked, lights fell down and items were blasted off of their counters, according to Fox 46.

At least 18 detained in protests at Boston ICE facility

Approximately 1,000 activists marched through the streets of Boston Tuesday to protest the treatment of migrants and call for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), recalling comments by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who has repeatedly referred to detention facilities on the U.S.-Mexico border as “concentration camps.”

AOC WARNS US ‘HEADED TO FASCISM,’ SAYS TRUMP ‘COMPLETELY ENGINEERED’ HUMANITARIAN CRISIS

Michaela Caplana, 23, helped organized the protest through the Never Again Action group, told The Boston Globe her grandmother survived Auschwitz and she lost more than 30 family members in the Holocaust, which inspired her to be part of the movement.

“When we grew up hearing the words ‘never again,’ it’s referring to a moment like this,” Caplana said, referring to claims by Democratic lawmakers Monday that detained migrants were forced to drink toilet water and did not have access to hygienic necessities such as toothbrushes and soap.

Protestors marched from the New England Holocaust Memorial to the ICE detention center in Dorchester, Boston. Never Again Action said 18 protesters were detained by police. Boston 25 News reported that some of the demonstrators were arrested as they tried to occupy the detention center.

Tuesday’s protest represents the second major demonstration in Boston against the conditions in ICE detention facilities following after the mass walkout last week by Wayfair employees to protest the retailer’s sale of furniture to facilities along the southern border.

“Congress needs to shut down ICE immediately and ensure freedom and permanent protection for all undocumented immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers,” Never Again Action said in a press release. “Until Congress steps up, we are making it impossible for ICE to do business as usual.”

Two teens wounded in shooting in San Francisco-area mall

Westlake Legal Group Shooting-CA-Mall Two teens wounded in shooting in San Francisco-area mall Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc def199dd-69fc-543a-aed8-17092233651b article

Two teenage boys were shot Tuesday, two other people were injured and two suspects were at large in the aftermath of shooting at a San Francisco-area shopping mall. The mayhem sparked panic among shoppers and the shutdown of two train stations.

Paramedics rushed the gunshot victims to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, hospital spokesman Brent Andrew told Fox News. The two were listed in critical and serious condition, respectively.

Around 4 p.m., officials received reports of an active shooter at the Shops of Tanforan, a retail complex of over 120 stores in San Bruno. Dozens of police converged on the scene and searched for a gunman, KTVU reported.

San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said two shooters were firing at each other with handguns.

“I saw people running and I heard ‘pow, pow, pow, pow!'” shopper George Castro told KPIX. “People were yelling ‘Get out of the mall, get out of the mall, there’s a shooting!'”

San Bruno Fire Chief Dave Cresta said two other people injured in the incident were treated for minor, non-shooting injuries and released from an area hospital, SFGate.com reported. Information on the nature of their injuries was not released.

The Bay Area Rapid Transit agency shut down the 12th Street Oakland station as police searched “possible suspects related to the situation at San Bruno” inside a train.” The station was reopened just before 5:30 p.m.

Officers said they knew who they were looking for, based on passenger descriptions. The San Bruno station and parking garage remained closed as of 6 p.m. Commuters were told to expect train delays across the Bay Area.

One suspect possibly boarded a train, police said

The manager of a Finish Line store at the mall told KTVU the first shots rang out at the food court. He said one suspect went upstairs and fired more shots.

Jezabelle Catig, 20, told The Associated Press she was in the BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse kitchen working as a waitress when her co-workers said there had been a shooting. The chaos prompted the 20 to 30 restaurant employees and 10 diners inside to lock themselves in the kitchen.

Police arrested a man on Monday after he allegedly caused damage to a Connecticut church because he felt the pastor was pushing an LGBT agenda.

Charles Yarbrough, 30, of Nashville, Tenn., now faces hate crime and burglary charges, according to a report from the Milford, Conn., police sent to Fox News.

Police said Yarbrough told them he went to Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church in Milford on Monday and damaged the office door because he felt the pastor and the church as a whole were supporting the LGBT community and promoting its agenda.

In a statement, the Rev. Kristina Hansen called the incident “unfortunate and saddening.”

She added, “It does not, however, dissuade us from our affirming stance.”
