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.

PENNSYLVANIA WOMAN ARRESTED FOR DRUNK DRIVING AFTER GOING TO PICK UP BOYFRIEND ARRESTED ON DUI CHARGE

Sanchez, who was 18 at the time of the July 2017 crash, had been livestreaming herself on Instagram as she drove drunk.

The video showed her taking her hands off the steering wheel, prosecutors said.

Sanchez veered onto the shoulder of a road in Los Banos, about 100 miles south of San Francisco. Investigators said she overcorrected, causing the vehicle to swerve and overturn. Her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline, was ejected and killed.

She also livestreamed her sister’s dead body, asking her to wake up, the paper reported. She then said she killed her sister and was “going to jail.”

Sanchez’s blood-alcohol level measured 0.106 nearly two hours after the crash, the Sun-Star reported, citing court records.

Sanchez was approved for the state’s Custody to Community Transitional Reentry Program, which has allowed serious or violent offenders to serve their sentences in the community while undergoing provided rehabilitative services, the spokesman told the paper.

California police catch alleged stalker in corn maze

Westlake Legal Group Petaluma-PD California police catch alleged stalker in corn maze Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/crime fox-news/odd-news fox news fnc/us fnc article 68b5faae-6a5c-5451-b5e2-a178ec76b0c3

A man accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend hid from police in a popular corn maze in a northern California pumpkin patch on Saturday, investigators said.

Ryan Watt, 29, was arrested at the Petaluma Pumpkin Patch, an hour north of San Francisco, around 11 a.m. on Saturday, according to a Petaluma Police news release.

Watt was accused of violating a restraining order by stalking his former girlfriend online, in person and by using a GPS tracking device secretly planted on her car.

OFF-DUTY CALIFORNIA OFFICER KILLED IN CRASH ON FREEWAY

Police said he’d been arrested multiple times earlier this month. Incidents included Watt allegedly showing up at his ex-girlfriend’s home uninvited, attending her son’s school athletic practices uninvited, hacking her social media accounts and texting her to let her know he was monitoring her whereabouts, according to the news release.

SUSPECTED ARSONIST SET CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES BEFORE ATTENDING HIGH SCHOOL REUNION: REPORT

Petaluma Police said Friday night they received another report that Watt violated the restraining order, this time by calling and texting his ex-girlfriend, asking if she would drop the pending cases against him. They said officers then looked for Watt at several homeless camps, found him and tried to arrest him, but he managed to escape.

Police said officers conducted foot patrol at the same homeless camps the next morning around 9 a.m. and found Watt. He evaded arrest by running across a freeway and into the corn maze at the Petaluma Pumpkin Patch, according to the news release.

Petaluma Police officers, with the help of California Highway Patrol motor officers and the agency’s airplane, surrounded the corn maze and found Watt on the pumpkin patch property, police said, adding that they arrested him without incident.

A charge of stalking against Watt was being reviewed by the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office, police said.

He has been booked at Sonoma County Jail with a bail of $250,000.

NYPD officer, ‘a great cop, dedicated to keeping this city safe,’ killed during shootout in the Bronx, police chief says

Westlake Legal Group nypd-handgun NYPD officer, 'a great cop, dedicated to keeping this city safe,' killed during shootout in the Bronx, police chief says Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-york-city fox news fnc/us fnc article 6dfc5d68-4b89-5f34-a1da-004f8ab69d89

A New York City police officer described as a “young man with a bright future” and a man he was trying to arrest were both shot and killed during a struggle early Sunday in the Bronx, police said.

The New York City Police Department identified the slain officer as Brian Mulkeen, 33, who has been with the department for nearly seven years.

NYPD Chief Terence Monahan told reporters on Sunday morning, “A young man with a bright future who courageously patrolled some of New York City’s toughest streets has tragically lost his life.”

“Brian was a great cop, dedicated to keeping this city safe,” he added.

NYPD COP DIES AFTER SHOOTOUT WITH SUSPECT IN THE BRONX

Police said the officer was shot three times, possibly with his own gun, as he grappled on the ground with the 27-year-old suspect who was also armed. Monahan told reporters the suspect, who has not yet been identified, had several prior arrests and was on probation until 2022 for a narcotics-related offense last year. His criminal history included a burglary conviction in Rockland County, according to police.

Police said they recovered a .32-caliber revolver that they said belonged to the suspect, adding that it had not been fired. On Sunday, the NYPD tweeted a picture of the gun recovered at the scene of the police-involved shooting in the Bronx.

“We lost a hero this evening,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at the news conference outside Jacobi Medical Center.

Mulkeen was patrolling the streets around a city apartment complex in the Bronx at around 12:30 Sunday morning as part of a unit investigating gang activity when he and his partner tried to arrest a man who had fled questioning, Monahan told reporters. He said that is when a “violent struggle on the ground” took place.

Monahan said as Mulkeen and the suspect wrestled, his body camera recorded him yelling “He’s reaching for it! He’s reaching for it!”

“Officer Mulkeen’s gun fired five times,” Monahan said. “At this point, it is not clear who fired Officer Mulkeen’s gun.”

Monahan told reporters that five officers fired at the suspect, who was struck and pronounced dead at the scene. He said Mulkeen was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx where he was pronounced dead.

Mulkeen worked out of the 47th precinct in the Bronx and lived with his girlfriend, who is also an NYPD police officer in the borough.

Monahan called Mulkeen “brave,” and said he was “doing the job we asked him to do, a job that New Yorkers needed him to do.”

NYPD DETECTIVE KILLED IN FRIENDLY FIRE, SECOND OFFICER INJURED IN QUEENS

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted on Sunday morning, “I am heartbroken by the loss of NYPD Officer Brian Mulkeen, who was shot and killed in the line of duty today.”

“At 33, Officer Mulkeen was taken far too early from his family and from the city he sacrificed everything to protect. He is the embodiment of bravery and a true NY hero.”

The NYPD tweeted video of dozens of officers lining up outside Jacobi Medical Center to give Officer Mulkeen “a final salute.”

On Sunday, NYPD Police Commissioner James O’Neill tweeted,” NYPD Police Officer Brian Mulkeen, a 33-yr-old Bronx cop, was killed about 12:30 am while doing the courageous work New Yorkers needed him to do. He served for nearly 7 years. There is no worse a moment in our profession than this. Please keep Brian’s family & colleagues in your thoughts.”

Mulkeen is the second NYPD officer killed in the line of duty this year. Detective Brian Simonsen was accidentally shot by fellow officers seven months ago while confronting a robbery suspect.

“We’ve been here too often. We know the directions to get here,” Pat Lynch, the president of New York City’s Police Benevolent Association, said at the news conference. “It has to stop.”

Matthew Whitaker: Our men and women in blue deserve Americans’ support now more than ever

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6088459324001_6088457198001-vs Matthew Whitaker: Our men and women in blue deserve Americans' support now more than ever Matthew Whitaker fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article aaca41bd-ad8e-5a97-8804-42334580f575

To inspire all citizens to value law enforcement: that is the vision statement of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, which supports the memorial to fallen law enforcement officers in Washington, D.C.

When I served as a prosecutor in Des Moines, Iowa and ultimately served as the acting attorney general of the United States, I viewed firsthand the professionalism and dedication of police officers and sheriffs’ deputies across the country. I repeatedly shared with them how the U.S. Department of Justice has their back and they have the thanks of a grateful nation.

Unfortunately, we have recently seen too many examples of a complete lack of disrespect for the men and women in blue.

NYPD USES TECH TO GAUGE CITIZENS’ SENSE OF SAFETY: IT’S A ‘SHARED RESPONSIBILITY’

After a shootout and standoff in Philadelphia, several people near the scene in the Nicetown neighborhood taunted and laughed at the officers whose fellow officers had just been wounded.

NYPD officers have been doused with water, soaked with milk, pelted with Chinese takeout, cursed at and assaulted in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Harlem. NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill vowed recently that “These incidents of disrespect, we cannot tolerate them. There has to be consequences for them, and it has to stop.”

While hundreds of thousands protested climate change around the world and in Portland, Oregon, a faction of masked Antifa militants dressed in black harassed police officers.

More from Opinion

As U.S. Attorney William McSwain of Pennsylvania’s Eastern District pointed out in a recent statement, we have a “new culture of disrespect for law enforcement.”

This breaks my heart. When a police officer or sheriff’s deputy approaches a car at night or knocks on a door for a welfare check or to serve a warrant, that officer or deputy hopes for the best and fears the worst. Their family is often left holding their breath until they return home after their shift is over.

And yet, it’s disturbing that three of the Democratic Party’s presidential candidates (Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Tom Steyer) still say that Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson committed murder in shooting criminal suspect Michael Brown. Their position is completely at odds with the findings of the Department of Justice’s investigation of that incident.

Obama’s Justice Department, led by then-Attorney General Eric Holder, issued its own report, ruling it self-defense. This was despite that department’s repeated friction with local and state law enforcement throughout Obama’s presidency.

On the other side is President Trump, who has been an unwavering supporter of law enforcement. The motto of the Fraternal Order of Police is “Jus, fidus, libertatum.” Translated, it means, “Law is the safeguard of freedom.” President Trump has been steadfast in backing the blue and the Department of Justice under his leadership continues to fulfill his commitment to law enforcement.

No matter what your political persuasion, we should all agree that public safety is a high priority for all Americans. Every American child should be able to play in their front yard, free from the fear of neighborhood violence.

That is why I specifically call on my fellow Americans to follow the lead of 8-year-old Rosalyn Baldwin, who travels all across the United States, hugging as many police officers as she can.

We must return to a culture that respects and supports law enforcement in its critical mission. We must back the men and women in blue.

NYPD cop dies after shootout with suspect in the Bronx

A plainclothes New York City police officer died early Sunday after engaging in a shootout in the Bronx in what was reportedly described on police radio as an “ambush.”

Brian Mulkeen, 33, served on the force for nearly seven years, Commissioner James  P. O’Neill tweeted.

“There is no worse a moment in our profession than this,” he wrote. “Pls keep Brian’s family & colleagues in your thoughts.”

TRAILBLAZING SIKH DEPUTY SHOT AND KILLED DURING TEXAS TRAFFIC STOP

Law enforcement officials told the New York Post that Mulkeen suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was rushed to nearby Jacobi Hospital. The unidentified suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

“We lost a hero by every measure, we lost a hero,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

Mulkeen was part of an anti-crime unit in place due to an uptick in gang violence in the area.

Witnesses described hearing the shots and said they spotted the two men lying on the ground at Laconia Avenue and East 229 Street at around 12:30 a.m.

CBS New York reported that officers were heard on police radio reporting from the scene, “ambush, ambush, shots fired, shots fired.”

“At first it was one shot. Then two seconds later it was followed by continuous shots  — like, one-two-three-four-five-six. And then I see this car — I think it was a Jeep — drive off,” Pedro Gonzalez, 18, told the Post.

They all pleaded not guilty to second-degree gang assault at their arraignment Saturday in Hempstead.

Two 16-year-olds also were charged with gang assault but were not named by police because of their age. Scott Gross, an attorney for one of the 16-year-olds, said his client “played no role” in the killing.

Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said at a news conference Saturday the fight at a strip mall near Oceanside High School started because Morris was with the ex-girlfriend of one of the suspects.

Fitzpatrick said the suspects all took part in the attack on Morris.

“Each one of them had an active role,” he said. “They came with the intention to seriously hurt him. Khaseen got killed as a result.”

“It’s the first step toward justice,” Fitzpatrick said of the arrests, according to WPIX-TV.

Morris’ funeral was being held Saturday.

US military official who worked at Mar-a-Lago lied during child porn investigation: report

A U.S. Army official who was stationed at President Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida from August 2017 to March 2018 was sentenced to three years of probation for lying during a suspected child pornography investigation, local reports said.

Richard Ciccarella, a 34-year-old staff sergeant who was responsible for “making and placing calls” for Trump and other White House officials uploaded photos of a young girl wearing underwear to a Russian website, reports said.

He titled the folder, “dirty comments welcomed,” CBS 12 News reported, citing court documents. The Palm Beach Post reported that the girl was a young relative.

The paper said he apologized in court for posting the photos and said he will “forever regret” his actions. The Post reported that his marriage “crumbled.” The paper also said that he had 15 years of “unblemished service” that included two tours of Iraq.

The report said that he would also travel with the president.

The Miami Herald, citing court records, reported that he accessed the Russian site with an email linked up to his work phone.

The report said he was not charged with uploading the images and prosecutors said they did not constitute pornography.

But he lied about his use of the email address linked to the username. He pleaded guilty in July to a charge of making a false statement to a federal agent.

His attorney told The Herald that his client is still in the military and is “moving on with his life.”

Reports said he is stationed in Virginia and the judge ordered him to undergo sex offender treatment.

Princeton grad gets maximum sentence in killing of hedge-fund father

The killing gripped New York City when it was first reported.

A Princeton graduate with movie star looks was accused of entering his hedge fund father’s tony NYC apartment and fatally shooting him. His mother– who he asked to get him a Coca-Cola from a store– found her husband’s body in his bedroom.

The trial was never about who pulled the trigger; it was about whether or not Thomas Gilbert Jr., was aware of his actions at the time of the shooting.

Thomas Gilbert, Jr. (Manhattan District Attorney)

On Friday, a state judge in Manhattan ruled against the killer and sentenced him to the maximum sentence allowed: 30 years to life. Prosecutors said Gilbert knew what he was doing and “threw the ultimate tantrum” after having his allowance slashed.

Gilbert addressed the court for about 10 minutes and referred to himself as “the defendant,” The New York Times reported.

He told the court, “The defendant expresses remorse.”

Justice  Melissa Jackson was not convinced that he is insane.

“You knew exactly what you were doing,” she said, according to the Times. “You were not insane at the time you killed your father. You were not insane then. You are not insane now.”

Thomas Gilbert Sr. was fatally shot on Jan. 4, 2015. The younger Gilbert showed up unannounced, angry that he lost his weekly allowance of $1,000. According to prosecutors, he spent the money on travel, memberships to elite sporting clubs and other personal expenses, but was not able to hold down a steady job.

His parents, who also covered his basic daily expenses, had been encouraging him to become more self-sufficient and incrementally reduced his monthly allowance.

Shelley Gilbert, his mother, insisted after the sentencing that her son was mentally ill and could not comprehend his actions.  The New  York Times reported that she pleaded with the judge to order her son to be admitted to a psychiatric facility.

“I know this is what my husband would have wanted for him,” she said.

The jury rejected the 35-year-old defendant’s insanity defense during the trial, deciding that he murdered the hedge fund manager with a shot to the head at close range from a semi-automatic pistol, a .40-caliber Glock purchased months earlier from a seller in Ohio. Before fleeing the apartment, Gilbert put the gun in his father’s hand to try to stage his death as a suicide, according to trial testimony.

“Thomas Gilbert, Sr. was a beloved member of his family and business community when his own son murdered him in a cold-blooded killing,” District Attorney Cyrus Vance said Friday in a statement. “But now, thanks to my office’s prosecutors, the defendant has finally been held accountable and he will serve a life sentence for this unconscionable crime.”

The elder Gilbert was the founder and manager of the New York-based Wainscott Capital Partners Fund.

His son also was convicted on charges of criminal possession of a weapon.

Not the bean dip!

A grocery store employee in Oregon has been arrested on suspicion of providing her co-workers bean dip that had been laced with meth.

Cassandra Medina-Hernandez, 38, was arrested on Wednesday, following an investigation into the incident, which occurred earlier this month.

According to an affidavit obtained by The Oregonian, Medina-Hernandez was working at the Thriftway grocery store in Jefferson on Sept 9 when she was spotted behaving suspiciously on security footage. On that day, Medina-Hernandez had reportedly prepared a plate of bean dip, sometimes with her back to the surveillance camera, and also while appearing to retrieve something out of her bra.

After setting the dip out on a plate, Medina-Hernandez allegedly allowed two co-workers to eat some, and one later ended up in the hospital.

“After being treated at an area hospital, the victim learned the bean dip may have contained methamphetamine,” the Marion County Sheriff’s Office explained in a statement obtained by KVAL.

The third employee, who also ate the dip, later claimed that Medina-Hernandez told her the methamphetamine was added to the food by accident.

Medina-Hernandez was taken into custody on suspicion of “delivery of methamphetamine and causing another person to ingest a controlled substance,” according to The Oregonian.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office added that it had no reason to believe any customers of the Thriftway were affected.
