Former veterans charity leader sentenced to year in prison for stealing $900G

The former executive director of a veterans charity organization, convicted last year of stealing $900,000 from the nonprofit and using it for personal expenses, has been sentenced to a year in prison, according to a report.

Patricia Driscoll, a former girlfriend of NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, was found guilty in November 2018 of wire fraud, tax evasion and first-degree fraud, according to the Justice Department. She had been accused of spending the money on jewelry, shopping trips and business ventures.

Court records showed that sentencing for Driscoll, a Maryland resident, has been stayed pending an appeal, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Tuesday.

“The court issued a thoughtful and considered sentence based on the totality of the circumstances in this case and stayed it pending appeal. With the stay, we can continue to pursue justice,” one of her attorneys, Brian Stolarz, told the newspaper.

U.S. District Judge Richard Leon also ordered Driscoll to pay $154,289 in restitution and serve 36 months’ supervised release, according to the publication.

Driscoll was the former executive director of the Armed Forces Foundation, founded in Washington, D.C., in 2001 to help promote veterans’ quality of life, The Union-Tribune has reported.

The foundation was co-founded by former Rep. Duncan L. Hunter, whose son, Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, R-Calif., now faces charges that he illegally used campaign funds for personal expenses.

Driscoll resigned from the organization after leading it for 12 years when allegations surfaced in 2018 that she’d misused funds. The nonprofit dissolved its operations in September 2018 when Driscoll was found guilty.

The nonprofit’s 2015 tax filing reportedly indicated Driscoll misspent $900,000 on personal expenses going as far back as 2006.

Former nurse pleads guilty to abusing nine infants, leaving them with broken ribs, legs

A former Wisconsin nurse pleaded guilty Monday to abusing or neglecting nine infants in a newborn intensive care unit, leaving them with an array of injuries including broken ribs and legs and a fractured skull.

Christopher Kaphaem, 44, pleaded guilty to all 19 felony counts against him. He faces up to 148 years in prison. He was expected to go to trial next month.

Madison police began investigating Kaphaem in response to reports of injuries to infants in February 2018 at the UnityPoint Health-Meriter Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU),

One boy sustained 17 fractures or suspected fractures, one health official testified. A criminal complaint offered no potential motive.

Eight of the nine infants allegedly abused were born prematurely, as early as 27 weeks, The Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Kaphaem worked for the hospital for more than 14 years. His license was suspended Feb. 8, 2018.

The hospital was cited in March of that year after federal inspectors found it didn’t respond appropriately to allegations of infant abuse in April 2017.

Meriter said it has installed video monitoring in NCIU patient rooms and has updated procedures for reporting abuse.

Iowa boy, 14, is accused of posting ‘school shooter’ ad on job website

Iowa police have accused a 14-year-old boy of posting an advertisement for a “school shooter” on a job search website.

Fort Dodge police said Monday the boy was taken into custody and charged as a juvenile with threat of terrorism. His name was not released because he is a minor.

Police said those who saw the post Friday afternoon on the online job board Indeed.com alerted them and the Fort Dodge Community School District (FDCSD).

“With student safety being of utmost importance, we always are working in collaboration with the FDCSD anytime a potential threat or concern is raised,” police said. “This incident was no different. Once information was gathered, we worked closely with the school staff to identify the individual involved and hold them accountable.”

Police said it wasn’t readily apparent who had posted the ad because the post provided only minimal content.

They found out who posted it after contacting the website.

Arizona bride, groom arrested in wedding-day assault on cops, police say

A just-married bride and groom in Arizona were arrested over the weekend after allegedly assaulting police officers following their wedding day festivities, authorities said.

Prescott police officers responded to reports of a woman wearing a wedding dress trying to assault a store clerk of a local business around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, the Arizona Republic reported, citing a police statement.

Officers located the bride and groom, identified as 30-year-old Ashley Jordan and 32-year-old Eric Cordova, along Prescott’s Whiskey Row, police said. Cordova allegedly became aggressive toward officers when they approached Jordan.

An officer tried to restrain Cordova, but the pair fell to the ground during the struggle, police said. Other members of the wedding party began assaulting the officer to prevent Cordova’s arrest, KPHO-TV reported.

As the group refused to listen to officers’ commands, Jordan, still wearing her wedding dress, allegedly pushed an officer and struck another, police said.

The newlyweds were arrested on charges of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, police said.

Second person arrested in 300G heist from Kennedy Airport

A second man has been arrested in connection with the theft of $300,000 from a Florida-bound flight departing from New York‘s  Kennedy International Airport.

Authorities took Queens resident Emmanuel Asuquo Okon, 33, into custody over the weekend, officials said Monday, according to KABC-TV.

His friend, Quincy Thorpe, 40, was arrested last week in connection with the theft last Tuesday. Thorpe worked as a Delta Airlines baggage handler who authorities believe swiped a bag full of cash before it was supposed to be loaded onto a flight to Miami.

“We are taking this situation very seriously and working directly with authorities on their investigation, as well as conducting an internal investigation of our own,” the airline said in a statement.

Okon is not employed by the airline but is accused of helping Thorpe.

The money was supposed to be part of a shipment of eight bags on Delta Flight 1225, prosecutors said.

Security surveillance showed Thorpe allegedly scanning and loading bags onto the flight but not scanning the stolen bag, authorities said. He placed it in a container and drove off in a work vehicle, they said.

The missing money was detected when the plane landed in Florida and a member of the armored car security team noticed the bag count was off.

Court documents said Okon used his domestic partner’s Nissan to drive to JFK and pick up the stolen bag of cash from Thorpe.

Investigators found the car Sunday and conducted a search. An envelope containing the flight’s manifest was found. Co-workers told investigators Thorpe went home sick around the time of the alleged theft.

“In my mind there’s a question of how is the money actually taken out of the airport? If there are surveillance cameras all around, that’s a question that needs to be answered going forward, but we’ll see what the government wants to do with it,” Thorpe’s attorney told the station.

Okon was released from police custody on $80,000 bond. The missing money has not been recovered.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department and the FBI are investigating

Last of 4 Ohio jail escapees caught in North Carolina

All four inmates who broke out of an Ohio jail after overpowering two female guards were back in custody Monday.

Three of the escapees — Christopher Clemente, 24, Brynn Martin, 40 and Troy McDaniel Jr., 30 — were caught in Cary, N.C., around 2 a.m. Monday.

Gallia County Sheriff Matt Champlin announced the capture of the fourth Monday afternoon.

“I am pleased to report that just a short while ago the fourth and final escapee, Lawrence R. Lee III was taken into custody by law enforcement officials in Durham, N.C.,” Champlin said.

The escape from the Gallia County Jail in Gallipolis happened around 12:14 a.m. Sunday.

The four men overpowered the two guards with a jailhouse knife called a “shank,” investigators said.

They then made their getaway from the jail in a stolen corrections officer, driving one block to where another vehicle was waiting for them, Champlin said, as the Gallipolis Daily Tribune reported.

Clemente was being held on a charge of complicity to deal drugs. Martin, who had a long rap sheet, was being held on charges of failure to appear and escape. McDaniel was being held on a charge of failure to appear in a Gallia County Juvenile Court matter and Lee was being held on a charge of identity fraud.

Martin was charged with an escape after investigators said he and another inmate bolted from a vehicle transporting them to the Gallia jail earlier this month. They were caught the next day, according to reports.

‘Toy Story’ doll was like getting message from child tortured, killed by dad, jurors say

At one point during the summer trial the resulted in a South Carolina father being sentenced to death for the brutal killing of his five children, a prosecutor reportedly showed jurors one of the dead children’s favorite dolls that was ripped to shreds by his dad.

Rick Hubbard, the prosecutor, identified the doll as the iconic Woody from “Toy Story.” The doll was damaged by the boy’s father, Timothy Jones Jr., to torture his son Nahtahn, 6, according to prosecutors.

Hubbard passed the doll to the jurors who flinched when the doll’s recorded voice spoke out, “Boy, am I glad to see you!”

South Carolina’s The State newspaper– in an in-depth profile about the psychological toll that the murder trial had on the Lexington County jury– reported that members said hearing the doll’s voice was like receiving a message from the 6-year-old who loved the doll “more than anything.”

The report said an FBI agent played a tape during the trial where Jones, 37, who killed all five of his children, apparently saved the worst torture for Nahtahn, who he made do exercises until fatal exhaustion in August 2014.

Over the next several hours, Jones left the house to buy cigarettes, taking his oldest daughter so she wouldn’t call for help, and leaving the three other kids with their brother’s body. Then he made a decision, just like the one the jury was called upon to make, the prosecutor said.

“He sentenced his kids to death,” Hubbard said.

In a confession, Jones said he strangled 7-year-old Elias with his hands and chased down 8-year-old Merah before choking her. Her last words were reportedly, “I love you, daddy.”

He then used a belt to choke 2-year-old Gabriel and 1-year-old Abigail because he said his hands were too big.

That deserved death and not life, Hubbard said.

The defense focused on what Jones’ lawyers called undiagnosed schizophrenia made worse by drug and alcohol use. Jurors last week rejected their arguments that Jones was not guilty by reason of insanity or guilty but mentally ill.

During his closing argument, defense lawyer Casey Secor focused on how much Jones is loved by his family even after the killings. His grandmother, father and siblings all asked jurors to spare his life.

“How much more death does the Jones family have to endure? How many more funerals does this family have to go to? How many more tears do they have to shed? How much more heartache to they have to endure?” Secor said.

The testimony was tragic. Jurors told the paper that they could hear each other “sobbing through the walls during the trial.

Hubbard said after the trial, “No mercy was shown to the kids, but justice was done in this case.”

Florida mother arrested after baby critically injured with severe brain bleed

A Palm Harbor mother faces felony child abuse charges after her 5-month-old baby boy ended up in critical condition with a severe brain bleed, investigators said.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, 30-year-old Burgandie Marquez told detectives she became enraged during a phone call with the baby’s father on Thursday, and intentionally and forcefully jerked the child up from the ground twice, causing the infant’s head to snap backward.

Marquez said she then placed her baby underneath her arm and ran up and down the stairs inside her Palm Harbor home, allowing the infant’s head to bounce up and down without support.

The next morning, Marquez noticed the 5-month-old was having seizures, but tried consoling the baby instead of taking him to the hospital.

That afternoon, Marquez decided to take the infant to Pasco County to meet the child’s father, but stopped at a gas station when the baby’s condition worsened and said she needed medical attention for his seizures.

Paramedics airlifted the baby to St. Joseph’s Hospital for life-threatening injuries. Medical staff at the hospital told detectives the child suffered a severe brain bleed caused by head trauma. He remains in critical condition.

California woman, 19, who livestreamed DUI crash that killed sister is released on parole after 26 months

A 19-year-old California woman who livestreamed her drunken-driving crash that killed her 14-year-old sister has been released on parole after serving 26 months in prison.

Obdulia Sanchez was sentenced in February 2018 to six years and four months in prison after being convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment.

She was released on parole on Sept. 21 after receiving credit for completing “approved rehabilitative or educational programs,” a spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation told the Merced Sun-Star on Saturday.
