‘AK-47 Bandit’ sentenced in Nebraska to 35 years in prison

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news 'AK-47 Bandit' sentenced in Nebraska to 35 years in prison LINCOLN, Neb. fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 9c1faabb-bc3b-5e4d-b2c5-daf8858ae39b

A Montana man dubbed the AK-47 bandit and accused of holding up banks in several states over a five-year period has been sentenced in a Nebraska federal court to 35 years in prison.

Richard Gathercole, 41, of Roundup, Montana, received the maximum sentence Wednesday in a federal courthouse in Lincoln, Nebraska, after pleading guilty in March to bank robbery. Gathercole admitted during that plea hearing to using an AK-47 to rob a Nebraska City bank of more than $90,000 in 2014. Gathercole also pleaded guilty to the June 2017 carjacking of a farmer in Kansas that led to his arrest the same day in Lexington, Nebraska. Gathercole was one of the most wanted bank robbers in the nation at the time of his arrest, accused of a string of bank robberies in California, Idaho, Iowa and Washington state from 2012 to 2017.

Before his arrest, the FBI had been looking for years for the man they called the “AK-47 Bandit,” who typically wore a balaclava and carried an assault rifle with a drum magazine during the robberies. Investigators believe Gathercole robbed a string of California banks early in his string of crimes, the first being the robbery on Feb. 29, 2012, of a bank in Chino, California. During the robbery, investigators say Gathercole shot a Chino police officer. The bullet struck the officer’s femoral artery and shattered his femur, ending his law enforcement career.

Prosecutors say that aside from the assault weapon he carried during the robberies, Gathercole showed a pattern of threatening violence during the robberies. He usually threatened to kill bank employees and sometimes would place what appeared to be a bomb near bank employees, warning that it could go off inside the bank. Authorities say Gathercole would sometimes wear a bullet proof vest that was marked “Sheriff” or “Police” during the robberies.

After his arrest, federal agents found homemade bombs, guns and ammunition, sheriff’s badges and patches and a sheriff’s vest in Gathercole’s home.

As part of his plea deal, Gathercole won’t be prosecuted by other jurisdictions for other violent crimes, including shooting at a Kansas state trooper in 2017.

Some of the crimes had passed the five-year federal statute of limitations.

Mother of murdered New York girl pleads for state to block release of daughter’s killer

The mother of a 16-year-old girl who was brutally murdered in 1980 is urging a New York parole board to reconsider its decision to release her daughter’s killer next month.

Lois Bohovesky, whose daughter Paula was beaten, sexually assaulted and stabbed to death as she walked home from a library in Pearl River, N.Y., called it an “injustice” for the state to grant parole to Richard LaBarbera, one of the two men convicted in her murder.

“He [LaBarbera] still hasn’t taken responsibility for the murder,” Bohovesky, 87, told Fox News on Tuesday in an exclusive on-camera interview.

CALLS MOUNT FOR CUOMO TO BLOCK IMMINENT RELEASE OF CONVICTED CHILD KILLER

“The medical examiner said he’d never seen so brutal an attack,” she said. “Think about what would happen if they did it again. I’m not sure I can handle that.”

“If Governor Cuomo can do anything, please for God’s sake, reverse the decision,” said Bohovesky.

Robert McCain, left, and Richard LaBarbera, right.

A parole board of Cuomo appointees informed the family last week that LaBarbera will be released in July – a move that shocked victim advocates, state lawmakers and a town that has never healed from the savage murder of Bohovesky, an aspiring actress, gifted artist and honor student.

Only three states – Maryland, Oklahoma and California – allow governors to reverse a parole board’s decision. But Bohovesky hopes mounting pressure from state lawmakers and the community will force the parole board to reconsider its decision.

NEWSOM DENIES MANSON FOLLOWER LESLIE VAN HOUTEN PAROLE

In 1981, a jury convicted LaBarbera and Robert McCain of second-degree murder, and the two men were sentenced to 25 years to life in prison – the toughest sentence possible at that time.

LaBarbera, 66, who was out on parole for a drug-related offense at the time of the killing, has never claimed responsibility for Bohovesky’s death – a common prerequisite before a criminal is released. Neither has McCain, 58, who goes before the same parole board on June 10.

The details of Bohovesky’s murder are brutal.

Shortly after 7 p.m. on Oct. 28, 1980, the girl left her part-time job at the Pearl River library and walked through the center of town toward her home on Hunt Street. The teen was within two blocks of her parents’ house when LaBarbera and McCain – both of whom had been drinking at the High Wheeler bar nearby – noticed her crossing an intersection. McCain quickly caught up to Bohovesky and crushed the right side of her skull with a chunk of pavement he grabbed from the ground. He then dragged her behind an abandoned home and sexually assaulted her, while LaBarbera watched, according to police.

Believing that Bohovesky was dead, LaBarbera then tried to sexually assault the child. When she stirred, to his surprise, LaBarbera stabbed her with a knife five times in the back, killing her, police told Fox News.

In its decision, the parole board wrote: “The panel considered the brutality of your instant offense, where you and your co-defendant beat and stabbed your 16-year-old female victim.”

“During your interview, you expressed what appeared to be sincere remorse and your overall record reflects not only low (risk to the community) but maturity over the almost 39 years of incarceration.”

Bohovesky said she doesn’t believe LaBabera is remorseful.

“I don’t think he’s sorry. He’s never accepted responsibility for it so how can he be sorry?” she said. “And McCain keeps yelling that she was not raped. Well, the medical examiner said she was. I wish to God he [the judge] had convicted them of rape because there was no doubt that it happened.”

The outrage over LaBarbera’s reported release extends beyond Pearl River, a quiet hamlet in Rockland County about 30 miles north of New York City. Many New York lawmakers claim the state is determined to lower the prison population and, in doing so, has adopted a system that puts the criminal before the victim.

The decision to release LaBarbera comes after another highly controversial move by the same parole board: the decision to release Judith Clark, a former Weather Underground radical who drove the getaway car in the infamous 1981 Brink’s heist, during which two police officers and a guard were killed. Clark was granted parole in April after serving more than 37 years in a New York prison. In 2016, Cuomo commuted Clark’s 75-years-to-life sentence and made her eligible for parole.

Bohovesky’s call for a reversal of the parole board’s decision was echoed Tuesday by Peter Modafferi, one of the original detectives on the case, and John Murphy, a former longtime Rockland County legislator whose children attended school with Bohovesky at Pearl River High School.

“They were only sorry that they got caught,” said Modafferi, as he described the crime scene and his interrogations of LaBarbera and McCain. “They were cocky about it – arrogant.”

“A town lost its innocence that day,” added Murphy, who founded a non-profit group called, “Petition for Paula,” more than a decade ago. Every two years, the charity collects thousands of signatures to present to the parole board in opposition of the men’s release.

“We cannot have this happen to another child,” he said.

For Bohovesky, the agony of losing her only daughter is as painful now as it was in 1980.

“When Paula died, it wasn’t just leaving a hole – it was leaving a vacuum,” she said.  “It took a long time before I could function. Every fall, when the leaves would turn, I would hit a depression that I’d have to take medication for. And it kept going until January 1, which was her birthday.”

“Paula was extraordinary. She was only 16. Who knows what she would have become,” Bohovesky said. “The only thing worse would be never to have known her at all.”

Family of slain Chicago cab driver sues Uber

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Family of slain Chicago cab driver sues Uber fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Chicago Associated Press article 943fbe87-7f34-58a3-a030-4b01bad8d4b0

The family of a Chicago cab driver who died after being hurt in a fight with a ride-sharing driver is suing Uber.

Fangqui Lu is wanted on a murder warrant in the September death of Anis Tungekar. Authorities say the 64-year-old Tungekar was injured two days before his death by Lu, who worked for Uber. Lu is believed to be in China.

Tungekar’s family seeks $10 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Family attorney Michael Gallagher says Uber knowingly allowed a violent individual to operate as one of its drivers. Uber declined comment.

The lawsuit contends Lu fatally kicked Tungekar in the head during a traffic altercation. The incident was captured by a security camera and happened while Lu was being investigated for allegedly beating up a passenger while driving for a different ride-share company.

Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King says Manafort doesn’t deserve Rikers

Rikers Island is so bad, that not even Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort deserves to go there, Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King said on Twitter.

King tweeted his thoughts Tuesday after Fox News reported that Manafort, who is serving a federal prison sentence for bank and tax fraud charges, will be transferred to Riker’s Island later this week.

“I see people excited to see Paul Manafort sent to Rikers Island and put in solitary confinement,” King tweeted. “We must be so principled in our calls for reform that we want them even for our enemies.”

ALAN DERSHOWITZ: WHY IS PAUL MANAFORT OFF TO RIKERS? PREPARE TO BE SHOCKED (AND OUTRAGED)

Rikers, which holds nine of New York City’s 13 jails, is renowned for its brutal violence, corruption, and gang rivalries. Rikers’ inmates have included some of the 20th century’s most notorious criminals including the “Son of Sam” and Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon. Despite millions poured into reform efforts, violence has escalated in recent years.

Though it may be “exciting” to see someone of “privilege” being sent to a place where “hundreds of thousands of us have been sent to,” Rikers is still a “hell hole that nobody should have to go to. Even Paul Manafort,” King added.

California man freed from life prison sentence for joyriding

A California man was freed from prison after serving 23 years of his life sentence on a joyriding conviction, including eight years in solitary confinement for possessing a book written by the co-founder of a notorious prison gang.

His attorneys say it’s unconscionable that he was set to die in prison for nonviolent crimes.

Kenneth Oliver, now 52, was given the life sentence at 29 under California’s strict “three strikes” sentencing law for repeat felons.

Voters eased the law in 2012 to allow life sentences only when the third strike is for a serious or violent felony.

But Oliver was ineligible for a new sentence because he was found with purported gang materials including a book called “Blood In My Eye,” completed by Black Guerilla Family co-founder George Jackson days before he died during a bloody attempt to escape from San Quentin State Prison in 1971.

Oliver was freed Monday after Los Angeles County prosecutors dropped their objections “in the interest of justice,” and after the state corrections department expunged his gang-affiliation record and paid him a $125,000 settlement for his time in solitary.

“It’s almost impossible to believe that what happened to Ken happened here in California. You know, people think of this as an enlightened state and both the sentence and the time in (solitary confinement) don’t square with that,” said Ward Johnson, lead counsel on the case at the Mayer Brown law firm.

Oliver was arrested while a passenger in a stolen vehicle and pleaded guilty to taking a vehicle without permission. A stolen handgun was later found in his hotel room, prosecutors said. It was the latest in a string of crimes dating to an armed robbery when he was 16.

Los Angeles County prosecutor Nicol Walgren said she was impressed by Oliver’s rehabilitation in prison and preparation for a successful life outside. She called him the kind of prisoner that voters envisioned when they eased the three strikes law.

“Ken’s sentence of 50 (years)-to-life was much longer than (for) rapists and murderers,” said Michael Romano, director and founder of the Three Strikes and Justice Advocacy Projects at Stanford Law School. “There should be some proportionality.”

Voters agreed when they opted to free nearly 3,000 third-strike inmates, Romano said. Yet he estimated that another 200 to 500 qualifying inmates remain incarcerated largely because they can’t afford the legal team that worked for free on Oliver’s behalf.

“I really haven’t wrapped my head around it fully,” Oliver said 24 hours after his release and after he and his father, a university dean in Georgia, celebrated with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. “I do feel like time has passed me by but I’m trying not to be negative about it.”

He’s now in a transitional housing program and plans to become a paralegal, helping others through social justice programs while reconnecting with his three adult children.

He couldn’t understand being sent to solitary confinement for possessing a book readily available in most campus libraries, but spent his time studying the law and filing the federal lawsuit that eventually helped lead to his release.

“You’re single-celled for most of the time and every time you leave the cell or are escorted out you have to strip naked and bend over and cough,” Oliver said of his time in solitary. Exercise was three hours a day in a six-by-nine foot “dog kennel.”

“Some people go crazy in there,” he said. “Me, I chose to read and try to find a way out of there and not let that circumstance define me.”

The Latest: Mexican church blasts charges against leader

The Latest on the arrest of La Luz del Mundo’s leader and self-proclaimed apostle (all times local):

5:25 p.m.

A controversial Mexico-based church decried accusations of human trafficking and child rape against its leader Tuesday, calling them “false.”

Charges filed in Los Angeles allege that Joaquín García, the head of La Luz Del Mundo and its self-proclaimed apostle, and others coerced underage victims into performing sex acts by telling them that refusing would be going against God.

David Correa, a spokesman from the headquarters of La Luz del Mundo in Guadalajara, Jalisco, said in a phone call that they learned about the charges from the media and they are waiting for official information.

“We categorically deny those false accusations,” Correa said. “We know him personally and he is an honorable and honest man.”

The church, whose name translates to The Light of the World, has been the subject of child sex abuse allegations for years.

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced Tuesday that Joaquín García has been arrested and charged with committing 26 felonies in Southern California between 2015 and 2018. The charges also include human trafficking and producing child pornography.

Charges filed in Los Angeles allege that García and others coerced underage victims into performing sex acts by telling them that refusing would be going against God.

García was being held on $25 million bail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

Slain Utah girl remembered for her kindness, love of nature

A 5-year-old girl who authorities have said was killed by her uncle was remembered Tuesday as a kind and patient child who loved walking barefoot through tall grass.

Elizabeth “Lizzy” Shelley was buried in a small white coffin decorated with rainbow-colored butterflies and the words “Live like Lizzy.”

For her family, that means looking for beauty in weeds as well as flowers, and taking time to gaze in wonder at the moon.

Her mother Jessica Whipple remembered how Lizzy looked the first time she decided to ride her bike down a big hill near their house. Her mother worried she’d flip over, but Lizzy wasn’t afraid.

“It was just so brave and beautiful,” Whipple said.

Lizzy’s life ended last month, when Alex Whipple, 21, took her from her home and killed her after his sister let him stay the night, police have said.

Whipple’s fiance Detrich Black helped raise Lizzy, and said Tuesday that the girl never wandered away when they walked together, whether hiking in the mountains or sniffing scented candles at the grocery store.

“She was always so careful to stay close and always made sure she could see me,” he said.

She also loved ladybugs, even when they invaded the family home, and collected rocks, sticks and flowers on nature walks. Lizzy was known to take off her shoes to run through grass, puddles or streams, said her aunt Bonnie Black.

“If you were to walk along the street with her and pluck a leaf from a tree to give to her, she would accept it as though she were accepting a beautiful bouquet of flowers,” she said, remembering a Christmas where Lizzy shared her extra gifts with her cousins.

Her frantic parents reported her missing on May 25, touching off search in Logan, a small city set into picturesque mountains north of Salt Lake City.

Her uncle also went missing. But he was found within hours, while the search for Lizzy continued for five days.

Alex Whipple eventually told police where to found the child’s body — in woods less than block from her house — after prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.

Authorities have said they found the girl’s blood on Whipple’s clothing, and a bloody, broken knife from the family’s kitchen near where the body was hidden. He is charged with aggravated murder, child kidnapping and other counts.

Defense attorney Shannon Demler has said his client did something inexcusable but wanted the family to find closure.

During the funeral services, Lizzy’s family spoke not of how she died but of the beauty she found in her short life. Many had rainbow pins and a few wore butterfly wings to remember her free spirit.

“Life can be cruel, but today we are united in love to live like Lizzy” said the girl’s aunt, Liesel Black.

1 shot at major Southern California shopping mall

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news 1 shot at major Southern California shopping mall TORRANCE, Calif. fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 3dd5143a-95df-5d4c-a32b-efc8de2a7887

Police were searching Monday for a gunman in Southern California who shot a person at one of the nation’s largest malls.

Stores in the sprawling Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, south of Los Angeles, were locked down and dozens of shoppers evacuated.

Torrance police Officer Craig Durling said authorities believe the attacker fled the mall but they were still searching the site.

TV footage showed customers fleeing the mall into a parking lot as officers on SWAT vehicles rushed toward it.

Officers responded to the mall shortly before 3 p.m. following reports of shots fired, police said.

Officers found one person with a gunshot wound inside the mall and don’t believe there are additional victims.

Fire officials said one person was taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

The suspect was described as having a shaved head and wearing a black shirt and checkered shorts.

The incident prompted the lockdown of a nearby middle school.

The mall has more than 250 stores.

The Latest: Jurors to continue deliberating in dad’s trial

The Latest on a death penalty trial for a South Carolina father (all times local):

7:05 p.m.

A jury in South Carolina has deliberated about 90 minutes without reaching a verdict in the trial of a father charged with five counts of murder in the deaths of his children.

The Lexington County jurors started discussing Timothy Jones Jr.’s fate Monday evening. They will be back to resume deliberations at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Jurors can find Jones guilty, guilty but mentally ill, not guilty by reason of insanity or just not guilty.

Any guilty verdict would mean a second phase to Jones’ trial where the same jurors decide if he faces the death penalty.

A not guilty by reason of insanity verdict would require Jones to stay in a mental hospital until a judge rules he has regained his sanity.

Authorities say the 37-year-old Jones killed his children, ages 1 to 8, in their Lexington home in 2014.

5:30 p.m.

A jury in South Carolina has started deliberating on whether a father is guilty of five counts of murder in the deaths of his children.

The Lexington County jurors have four choices in Timothy Jones Jr.’s trial. They can find him guilty, guilty but mentally ill, not guilty by reason of insanity or just not guilty.

Any guilty verdict would mean a second phase to Jones’ trial where the same jurors decide if he faces the death penalty.

A not guilty by reason of insanity verdict would require Jones to stay in a mental hospital until a judge rules he has regained his sanity.

Jurors in the case decided to start deliberations about 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Authorities say the 37-year-old Jones killed his children, ages 1 to 8, in their Lexington home in 2014.

___

3:55 p.m.

A lawyer for a father facing a death penalty trial in the slayings of his five children in South Carolina says his diseased, damaged brain led him to think he was killing the kids out of love.

Boyd Young said in his closing statement Monday that prosecutors didn’t tell the whole story about Timothy Jones Jr. because they didn’t want to show he couldn’t tell right from wrong in August 2014 when he exercised one child to death and strangled the other four.

Young says stress from a failed marriage and trying to raise the children alone made his undiagnosed schizophrenia worse and then trying to medicate himself with alcohol and synthetic marijuana pushed him over the edge.

Jones admitted killing the children, ages 1 to 8, in their Lexington home.

___

2:40 p.m.

A prosecutor says a South Carolina father who admitted he killed his five children isn’t insane, but a selfish, evil man.

In closing arguments during a death penalty trial Monday, Solicitor Rick Hubbard said Timothy Jones Jr. didn’t hear voices, but made choices when he strangled four of the children after the fifth died from abuse and excessive exercise as punishment in their Lexington home in August 2014.

Hubbard says Jones knew right from wrong because he didn’t call 911 and took steps to try to hide all his children’s bodies. The children were found in trash bags on an Alabama hillside nine days after their deaths. They ranged in age from 1 to 8.

Defense lawyers are arguing Jones is not guilty by reason of insanity.
