A former police officer in Florida has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after being convicted in the shooting death of a driver whose car had broken down.

Circuit Judge Joseph Marx issued the sentence Thursday to Nouman Raja,41, a former officer in Palm Beach Gardens who was found guilty of killing of 31-year-old Corey Jones on Oct. 18, 2015.

“This has been a heartbreaking case,” Marx said. “I think it has had a profound effect on every single person who sat through this trial.”

Prosecutors said Jones, who was a member of a reggae band, was heading home from a performance at a nightclub when he pulled off to the side of the road after his car broke down.

Raja, who was dressed in plainclothes and driving an unmarked white van as a part of an auto burglary investigation team, approached Jones but never properly identified himself as a police officer, prosecutors said.

Jones had a concealed-weapons permit and was carrying a handgun.

At the time of the encounter, Jones had been on his phone, talking to a tow-truck dispatcher and the call was recorded. But police were not initially aware of the recording.

“You good?” the police officer is heard asking Jones.

“Yeah,” Jones responds.

Suddenly, Raja shouts at Jones to raise his hands, using an expletive. Jones replies, “Hold on!” and Raja repeats his demand.

Prosecutors believe Jones pulled his gun and tried to run away, Raja fired three shots and Jones ran down an embankment.

Jones then threw his gun, but Raja fired three more times, 10 seconds after the first volley. One of the bullets pierces Jones’ heart while other shots hit him in both arms, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors said Raja, not knowing of the tow-truck dispatcher recording, sought to deceive investigators. He claimed he said, “Police. Can I help you?” as Jones jumped from the SUV. He also told them Jones leaped backward and pointed his gun, forcing the officer to fire. Raja said Jones ran but turned and again pointed his gun, forcing the officer to fire the second volley.

Raja was charged with manslaughter and attempted murder. His sentencing marks the first time in 30 years that a Florida law enforcement agent has been convicted and sentenced for an on-duty killing.

A man who had allegedly been hiding out in his ex-girlfriend’s Pittsburgh home is now facing burglary charges, officials said.

Cary Michael Cocuzzi’s ex-girlfriend, who had a protection from abuse order against Cocuzzi, discovered her ex in her bedroom Saturday, authorities said.

The woman, who was not identified, told WPXI she saw signs around her home someone else was inside with her, such as when she discovered a blanket on the floor even though she hadn’t left it there.

“I feel like this is going to affect me for the rest of my life,” she told WPXI. “I had an intuition about it but I ignored it, I brushed it aside. I didn’t want to seem paranoid. But I should have trusted my instincts because I was right.”

Cocuzzi, 31, allegedly grabbed the woman, put a hand over her mouth and told her “Get over here,” according to the criminal complaint.

However, she pushed him away and was able to make it outside, where her terrified screams spurred several neighbors to call 911, officials said.

When police arrived and searched the home, they reported Cocuzzi was still there. They said he told officers he was homeless and had been sneaking in and out of the house for about two weeks.

The woman told the media outlet she was thankful her daughters were not at the residence at the time of the incident.

Cocuzzi is being held in the Allegheny County Jail and a preliminary hearing is slated for May 2. It was not immediately clear if he had retained an attorney.

California authorities on Wednesday released the name of the suspected driver accused of plowing a vehicle into eight people a day earlier.

Isaiah Joel Peoples, of Sunnyvale, Calif., was identified as the suspect by the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety (DPS) on Twitter.

Peoples was allegedly behind the wheel of a black 2010 Toyota Corolla that rammed into the group and he is suspected of possibly doing so “intentionally,” officials said following the incident.

It occurred around 6:40 p.m. on Tuesday as the driver was heading west on El Camino Real towards the city of Mountain View, DPS said. After striking the group, the car continued for a few more yards before slamming into a tree near a shopping center.

Following this, Peoples was taken into custody.

“We don’t know the motive behind this,” Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Capt. Jim Choi told Fox 2. “The driver might have intentionally ran into the group of people at the sidewalk. There was no attempt to break or steer away.”

The individuals struck by the vehicle were taken to the hospital, though their conditions were not made available.

Supreme Court hears DUI case in which blood was ordered drawn from unconscious driver without a warrant

Westlake Legal Group supreme-court-hears-dui-case-in-which-blood-was-ordered-drawn-from-unconscious-driver-without-a-warrant Supreme Court hears DUI case in which blood was ordered drawn from unconscious driver without a warrant fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/wisconsin fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/politics/judiciary/supreme-court fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 58d2a035-27af-549e-9fd5-348e9f9abfdb

A Wisconsin DUI case in which police officers ordered the blood of an unconscious man be drawn for evidence without first getting a warrant was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Prosecutors argued that drawing the blood of unconscious drivers helps convict those who kill thousands of people a year in alcohol-related car accidents, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. They said the process of getting a warrant is too inconvenient and that Wisconsin’s implied consent law does not require officers to get a warrant before drawing the blood of those suspected of driving while intoxicated, including individuals who are unconscious at the time.

JACQUI SABURIDO, WHO BECAME THE FACE OF ANTI-DRUNK DRIVING CAMPAIGNS, DEAD AT AGE 40

Implied consent laws, which exist in different forms in all 50 states, mandate that drivers who are arrested on suspicion of drunken driving agree to a blood test or have their licenses revoked. If a driver denies a blood test, that fact can be used against them in court. Civil rights advocates, libertarian groups and defense lawyers said the law in this case violates the defendant’s right to protection against unreasonable searches and seizures guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the libertarian think-tank, the Cato Institute, filed on both sides regarding the case of Wisconsin v. Gerald P. Mitchell. The driver was arrested in 2013 after he blew .24 blood alcohol concentration on a preliminary breath test, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Even though the blood test showed Mitchell had a .22 BAC, he demanded the evidence be removed from court because officers never asked for a warrant. His request was denied and he was convicted of a seventh DUI offense and served three years. Mitchell appealed to state Supreme Court, which upheld the conviction. But state justices could not agree on the rationale behind officers being allowed to take blood of an unconscious suspect without a warrant.

A police K-9 in Oregon was in pursuit of a suspect when a porcupine crossed the dog’s path and pierced him with more than 200 quills, authorities said Monday.

Odin, the K-9 officer, was on the trail of a fleeing suspect — identified as 29-year-old Devin J. Wilson — on Saturday when he got in a tangle with the porcupine, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office said. Several of the 200 quills went into the dog’s mouth and two stuck close to his eye.

Police said they immediately suspended the search and rushed Odin to a veterinarian at Hanson-Meekins Animal Hospital in Coos Bay. The K-9 officer was sedated and treated for more than two hours.

The governor’s mansion in Baton Rouge, La., experienced an extraordinary security breach last week after a man trespassed into the property before damaging a table and falling asleep on a couch, state police revealed Monday.

Thirty-four-year-old Reynard Green was booked Wednesday on simple burglary, criminal trespass and criminal damage to property, possession of a Schedule I narcotic and two counts of battery of a police officer, The Advocate reported. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

A 66-year-old licensed Bay Area lawyer was arrested Sunday after he allegedly taped a camera to his shoe and then “moved his shoe so that the camera was under a female juvenile’s dress” at an Apple Store in Walnut Creek, Calif., police said.

Jacques Bloxham, who is a personal injury attorney, was reportedly confronted by the girl’s father and fled the store. Officers said they found various cameras and recording devices in the suspect’s car in addition to the one attached to his shoe.

Bloxham was arrested around 3 p.m. and booked into Contra Costa County Jail on suspicion of using a camera to secretly record the undergarments of another person, along with annoying or molesting a child under 18, San Francisco Chronicle reported. He later posted bail.

Police are investigating whether Bloxham recorded others and urge anyone with information to call the Walnut Creek Police Department.

Bloxham was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1986. He founded the Injury Law Center “in response to the public’s need for a personal injury attorney with honesty, integrity and a new understanding of the needs of injured clients,” according to his Yelp business profile.

A Tennessee attorney who was charged with stealing more than $1.36 million from the trust funds of clients including a slain state trooper’s daughter was sentenced Monday to over seven years behind bars.

Jackie Garton, 54, had pleaded guilty to wire fraud, tax fraud and aggravated identity theft. He was sentenced to 92 months in prison, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee said in a news release.

As a practicing attorney, Garton served as a trustee for several different trust fund accounts. One of the accounts he oversaw was for the daughter of Tennessee State Trooper Todd Larkin, who died in 2005 after he was hit by a tractor-trailer.

Prosecutors said that in 2009, “Garton began withdrawing funds under false pretenses from her account and others, without the clients’ knowledge.”

Garton “converted the funds into cashier’s checks and used the money to enrich his lifestyle, including purchasing luxury items including a Jaguar automobile, a boat and a house.”

In 2017, Larkin’s daughter was 24 years old and said she wanted to open a bookshop. That’s when she learned of the withdrawals from her trust fund, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Garton said he stole around $1.2 million dollars from Larkin’s daughter — most of the $1.36 million taken from accounts he oversaw.

Additionally, Garton underreported his income — which included the stolen funds — to the IRS in 2016, failed to report that money from 2009 to 2016 “and intended to defraud the IRS of more than $350,000,” prosecutors said.
