    NEW YORK (AP) — An Italian citizen charged with stealing numerous unpublished book manuscripts pleaded not guilty Thursday and had bail set at $300,000 despite a prosecutor’s attempt to keep him incarcerated until trial. Filippo Bernardini, 29, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft charges lodged against him after his Wednesday arrest as he arrived in the U.S. on a flight. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel Nessim asked that he be held until trial as a flight risk, but Judge Lewis J. Liman set bail at $300,000 and said he could be released once electronic monitoring was established. Bernardini’s lawyer, Hannah McCrea, successfully argued for bail, saying her client had never been arrested before. “He takes this very seriously and has every intention to fight this case,” she said. McCrea said Bernardini had found the experience “very humbling.” She said he would be staying in Manhattan’s West Village in a small apartment with a female friend until he finds an apartment of his own. McCrea said Bernardini’s father would arrive Saturday. Bernardini, who works...

              more   A far-left philanthropist who has been called “mini-Soros” is allegedly behind bail reform laws across America, including the one in Waukesha County, Wisconsin that freed career criminal Darell Brooks on $1,000 bail before he allegedly plowed his SUV into participants of the Waukesha Christmas Parade. Brooks was charged with six murders and a litany of other crimes after the attack, which also injured dozens more. The shocking crime, combined with Brooks’ lengthy rap sheet, left many Americans wondering how Brooks could have been freed on bail, thus allowing him to commit the crime. A report in Legal Newsline claims to have the answer. According to that outlet, a left-wing billionaire philanthropist from Houston named John Arnold created the calculation tool adopted in counties nationwide – including Waukesha – that sets bail for alleged criminals. Arnold and his wife Laura were once called the “Mini George Soros‘” for their work on left-wing causes, including anti-Second Amendment initiatives, government-run healthcare, propaganda through supposed journalistic endeavors, and “the gamut of far-left causes.” The Laura and John Arnold Foundation operates an initiative called Advancing...
    The aforementioned case against Johnson is still pending, the Post said. Man busted for assault is freed, allegedly beats two random NYC women, is freed again https://trib.al/jLH27An\u00a0pic.twitter.com/ISlmcoZdku — New York Post (@New York Post) 1638833933 What happened next? Which brings us to Thursday morning, when Johnson allegedly went on the attack in Manhattan once again. The paper, citing sources, said he allegedly approached a 50-year-old woman at Broadway and West 79th Street around 9:20 a.m. and carried out a “violent, unprovoked” attack on her. She's the previously noted victim who suffered a “disfiguring laceration” to her face, the Post said. Then three minutes later, Johnson allegedly assaulted a 32-year-old woman a block away on West 80th Street, walking up to her and punching her in the face, which caused “redness and swelling,” the paper said, citing the complaint. Both women were taken to St. Luke’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the Post said. What happened in court? Manhattan prosecutors in court Friday recommended Johnson's release under supervised monitoring in connection to the attacks...
    PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A judge imposed a combined $1 million bond Saturday for the parents of the Michigan teen charged with killing four students at Oxford High School, hours after police said they were caught hiding in a Detroit commercial building. James Crumbley, Jennifer Crumbley. (Oakland County Sheriff) James and Jennifer Crumbley entered not guilty pleas to each of the four involuntary manslaughter counts against them during a hearing held on Zoom. Jennifer Crumbley sobbed and struggled to respond to the judge’s questions at times, and James Crumbley shook his head when a prosecutor said their son had full access to the gun used in the killings. Judge Julie Nicholson assigned bond of $500,000 apiece and required GPS monitoring if they pay to be released, agreeing with prosecutors that they posed a flight risk. During a multi-agency manhunt in the early hours of Saturday morning, police found the pair in a commercial building on Detroit’s south side. Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe said the couple appeared to be hiding in the building. They were not armed when...
    Darrell E. Brooks Jr., the lone suspect in the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre, was charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide on Tuesday, with bail set for $5 million cash. Prosecutors outlined the charges on Tuesday afternoon during Brooks’ first court appearance following the horrific attack where he learned of a sixth fatality – an 8-year-old boy named Jackson Sparks, who died Tuesday from injuries sustained during the massacre. Though Brooks was only charged with five counts of intentional homicide at the hearing for the five confirmed fatalities, a sixth charge will soon likely be brought against Brooks as a result of Sparks’ death. Here are the names of the confirmed victims: 1.) Wilhelm Hospel, age 81 2.) Virginia “Ginny” Sorenson, age 79 3.) LeAnna Owen, age 71 4.) Tamara Durand, age 52 5.) Jane Kulich, age 52 6.)

Multiple people, including several children, remain in critical condition. Brooks’ bail was set at...
    Kyle Rittenhouse says that he did not know he was posing with members of the far-right group Proud Boys and that he had no idea the hand gesture he was making symbolized white supremacy as he blamed former attorney Lin Wood for the mishap. Rittenhouse insists he didn’t know the meaning of the ‘okay’ hand gesture, which he made as he was photographed standing alongside members of the Proud Boys at a bar in Wisconsin on January 5.  ‘I didn’t know that the "okay" hand sign was a symbol for white supremacy - just as I didn’t know those people in the bar were Proud Boys,’ Rittenhouse says. The Illinois teen who was acquitted in the fatal shootings of two men and the wounding of a third during the Kenosha riots in August of last year says it was Wood who set up the picture. The meetings ‘were set up by my former attorney who was fired because of that, for putting me in situations like that with people I don’t agree with,’ Rittenhouse told Ashleigh Banfield of NewsNation.

    Curtis 'Eddie' Smith boasted to friends that cops 'wouldn't find anything' when they searched his home and appeared untroubled despite being told he was a suspect in the shooting of Alex Murdaugh, DailyMail.com can reveal.  Smith, 61, was arrested Tuesday and charged on multiple counts including conspiracy and assisted suicide for his role in the shooting after Murdaugh, 53, claimed to having staged the attack in a bid to secure a $10million life insurance windfall for his surviving son Richard Alexander 'Buster,' Murdaugh Jr, 25. But, while neighbors expressed shock at this latest twist in the spiraling Murdaugh saga, one long-time acquaintance told DailyMail.com that Smith had been talking of his potential involvement in the crime when out in Walterboro last week. According to Henry Vandermark, who has known the man he described as 'straight-dealing' and 'friendly,' for more than a decade, Smith was blasé when he told him that cops had visited his Walterboro home last week and informed him that he was a suspect in the bizarre roadside shooting.  Murdaugh shooting suspect Curtis Edward Smith, 61, is...

    Ghislaine Maxwell has lost her latest bail hearing in New York on Tuesday and is therefore likely to remain in prison until her trial. The British socialite's claims that was mistreated while being held in custody were not enough to persuade a panel of three appeals court judges in New York to overturn the decision to deny her bail for a third time. Maxwell's lawyer said guards in her Brooklyn jail were keeping her awake at night to ensure she wouldn't commit suicide like financier and paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. But in a brief order, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said that to the extent Maxwell is being deprived of sleep, she should seek relief from U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan, who oversees her criminal case. David Markus, Maxwell's attorney, said he was 'heartbroken' by the ruling and the team are now 'considering our options for next step.' Maxwell, 59, has pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking and other charges over her alleged role in procuring four teenage girls for Epstein to abuse between 1994 and 2004. She...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Bail was set at $225,000 Thursday for the man who shot ex-New Orleans Saints star Will Smith in New Orleans in 2016 following a confrontation over a traffic crash. Cardell Hayes was sentenced to 25 years in prison for a manslaughter conviction in Smith’s shooting and attempted manslaughter for wounding Smith’s wife. But the verdict from the jury was not unanimous — jurors voted 10-2 — and has since been ruled unconstitutional. It was not immediately clear when Hayes, who has not been free since his arrest, would be released. But it appeared that the court and his attorneys expected him to make bail during detailed discussions about the conditions of his release pending a July 12 trial. The bail amount set Thursday was far less than the $1.75 million set when he was arrested and charged with second-degree murder. State Judge Camille Buras noted that prosecutors plan to proceed with prosecution for manslaughter and attempted manslaughter, not the original charges. She set bail at $175,000 on the manslaughter charge and $50,000 for attempted manslaughter. Buras...

    UPDATE: A judge in Hackensack will determine whether bail should be revoked for a Mahwah municipal employee who was charged with DWI while awaiting trial for an alleged sexual assault on a 10-year-old girl. Brian Potter, 43, was driving a township truck when Hawthorne police said they busted him in January. Potter had been freed by a judge in Hackensack pending trial four years ago after Bergen County prosecutor's detectives charged him with sexually assaulting the girl. One of the stipulations of his release was that Potter refrain from consuming drugs or alcohol. Potter was stopped on Lafayette Avenue in Hawthorne after a caller reported a 2012 Ford F350 truck bearing a “Township of Mahwah” logo being driven erratically, according to a Jan. 21 police report. “The officers noticed an odor of an alcoholic beverage from the vehicle,” Detective Lt. Matthew Hoogmoed said Thursday. Potter, who told them he was headed home from work, was “unable to pass the field sobriety tests and was arrested,” Hoogmoed said. The divorced father of three had been allowed to take the truck...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge in Las Vegas has set bail at $750,000 for an Arizona truck driver jailed since December on felony driving under the influence charges in a crash that killed five bicyclists on a Nevada highway. Jordan Barson’s attorney, Damian Sheets, said Friday he believes Justice of the Peace Suzan Baucum unfairly set unattainable bail while ruling Thursday that Barson could be freed but can’t drive and must submit to random alcohol and drug tests. “Setting bail at an arbitrarily high number so as to intentionally detain a defendant is improper,” Sheets said. Sheets said he intends to challenge evidence at a March 4 hearing set to determine if Barson should stand trial in state court. Barson, 45, of Kingman, Arizona, faces 14 charges, including driving under the influence of drugs causing death and reckless driving. He is accused of crashing the box truck he was driving into a group of recreational bicyclists Dec. 10 on U.S. 95 between Boulder City and Searchlight, Nevada. A prosecutor said blood tests showed Barson had more than nine times...
    APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — A judge on Monday set bail at $1.5 million cash for a teenager charged in a fatal shooting at a shopping mall in eastern Wisconsin. Dezman Ellis, 17, of Oshkosh, made his first appearance in Outagamie County Court on charges of first degree intentional homicide and first degree recklessly endangering safety. Ellis was transferred on Friday from Iowa, where he fled after the Jan. 31 shooting. Ellis is accused of killing Jovanni Frausto, 19, at the Fox River Mall in Grand Chute during an argument over a girl. A bystander was wounded, and the shooting forced people to shelter in place inside the suburban Appleton mall while police combed the building. Frausto's mother and father were allowed to speak during Monday’s hearing, although a judge at one point stopped the victim's mother from talking, WBAY reported. Attorneys for Ellis argued that their client, a senior at Oshkosh North High School, has a job at an area restaurant and has no prior adult criminal history. They argued for $50,000 bail.

    While the nation’s attention was focused on the transition of power in Washington, Illinois state lawmakers last week passed a massive criminal justice reform bill that would, among other things, end cash bail. The bill came in response to the police killing of George Floyd and others last year, which sparked a wave of protests across the country calling for criminal justice reform. Should it go into law, almost everyone in jail would be released while awaiting trial unless prosecutors could convince a judge that the defendant is a threat to public safety. In such cases, the accused would remain in jail without the opportunity for cash bail. FILE: Illinois lawmakers are seen on the House floor during session at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield Ill.  (AP) Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who has been accused of being too soft on criminals, has praised the idea of ending cash bail.

    The man who authorities say stole a Corona police SUV at gunpoint has been identified as Juan Daniel Perez, 30. Perez was booked into Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside on suspicion of carjacking and attempted second-degree murder. Perez is being held in lieu of $3 million bail. He had not been charged as of Tuesday, Jan. 12. He is due to appear in court Wednesday. Corona police Capt. Paul Mercado said Perez is a known gang member in Riverside. Additional details on Perez’s past were not immediately available Tuesday. The crime happened at about 2 p.m. on Jan. 9 after Perez’s car struck an unmarked police SUV on the westbound 91 Freeway near Van Buren Boulevard in Riverside, Corona police said.

No one was injured by the gunfire, Railsback said. Police tracked the man to an apartment complex at the intersection of La Sierra...
    MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The suspect in a Missoula shooting death has been arrested, police said. Christopher Lance Newrider, 33, was arrested at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the apartment complex where the shooting happened, said Sgt. Travis Welsh. Prosecutors have filed a deliberate homicide charge against Newrider for the death of Sundance Hernandez, 33. He was shot in the head in the parking lot on Tuesday afternoon.

    Kuhse scores 24 to lead Saint Marys (Cal) past UTEP 73-61 Heres Exactly What to Ask for This Christmas China Set to Bail Out Iraq With Multibillion-Dollar Oil Deal (Bloomberg) -- Iraq is poised to sign a multibillion-dollar contract with China ZhenHua Oil Co., a bailout from Beijing for the cash-strapped government which will receive money upfront in exchange for long-term oil supplies. Load Error The deal is the latest example of China, via state-controlled trading companies and banks, lending to struggling oil producers such as Angola, Venezuela and Ecuador, with repayment in the form of oil barrels rather than cash. This year’s crash in oil prices has hammered Iraq’s budget and the government has failed to pay teachers and civil servants on time.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Bail has been set at $1 million for the man charged with killing a University of Wisconsin-Madison student in 2008. David Kahl, 54, incarcerated at the Oshkosh Correctional Institution for a seventh-offense drunken driving conviction, appeared by video from the prison on Thursday. Assistant District Attorney Erin Hanson, in arguing for the high bail, said the slaying of Brittany Zimmermann shook the Madison community and beyond because of the “sudden violent and seemingly random taking of the life of a young student in her prime who was pursuing a career in medicine and was recently engaged.” Court Commissioner Mark Fremgen set bond following impassioned statements by video from members of Zimmermann’s family, including her aunt, Kimberly Heeg, the State Journal reported. “On a personal level, I believe David Kahl should never be allowed to breathe fresh air or feel sunshine on his skin,” Heeg said. “I believe he violently murdered my niece, a young woman who was kind and wanted nothing more than to make a positive difference in this world.” According to a criminal complaint,...

    MILWAUKEE (AP) — Bail was set at $1.5 million Monday for a North Dakota man accused of wounding two police officers in eastern Wisconsin. Nathanael Benton, 23, of Fargo, is charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court with two counts of attempted first-degree intentional homicide/use of a dangerous weapon as well as possession of a firearm by an out-of-state felon. Benton was classified as a repeat offender on all three charges. The officers, one from Delafield and one from Hartland, were shot Friday in Waukesha County, about 27 miles (43 kilometers) west of Milwaukee. Police chiefs in both the communities have declined to identify the officers, both of whom suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries. The shooting set off a nine-hour manhunt for Benton. If convicted of all charges, Benton could face more than 140 years in prison. He is also wanted in Fargo for attempted murder. Court documents show that a public defender will be assigned for Benton. His next hearing is set for Nov. 13. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast,...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bail has been set at $750,000 each for two Virginia men authorities said were armed with loaded handguns when they were arrested near the Philadelphia convention center where votes were being counted. Joshua Macias, 42, and Antonio LaMotta, 61, traveled from the Virginia Beach, Virginia, area in a Hummer and did not have permits to carry the weapons in Pennsylvania, police said. They were charged with carrying a concealed firearm without a license and carrying a firearm on a public street. The men were stopped Thursday about a block from the vehicle, Macias with a .40-caliber Beretta handgun inside his jacket and LaMotta with a 9mm Beretta in a holster, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said. An AR-style rifle and ammunition were found inside the vehicle, Outlaw said.

    BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A southwestern Montana man pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that allege he shot a woman during a child custody exchange at his house in Ennis. Bail was set at $1 million for Rick Park, 43, on a deliberate homicide charge in the Oct. 23 death of Nicole Watson, 36, of Helena, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported. Watson’s husband told officers that he and Watson went to Park’s house as part of a child custody exchange. They knocked on the door, Park opened it and shot Watson in the face and in the head. Park then told him to call 911, the husband reported. Park told responding officers that he shot Watson and surrendered the gun, court records said. Madison County Attorney Chris Christensen recommended $500,000 bail while defense attorney Walter Hennessy said Park was indigent and a $50,000 bail amount would be “somewhat high.” District Judge Luke Berger said that given the allegations, he didn't feel "a bond of anything less than $1 million is appropriate.

    By Claudia Dominguez | CNN Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen accused of fatally shooting two people and seriously injuring a third during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, attended a virtual hearing Monday where his bond was set at $2 million. Kenosha County Commissioner Loren Keating said the bond was set at such a high amount because the court considered Rittenhouse a “flight risk,” given that he could face a “mandatory life sentence or at least significant amounts of time, likely decades of time period of incarceration” if convicted. Rittenhouse was extradited to Wisconsin from Illinois after a judge’s ruling Friday. After previous arguments from Rittenhouse’s attorneys that an extradition could put him in danger, Judge Paul Novak of Lake County, Illinois, said in the ruling that matters filed by Rittenhouse’s attorneys, such as their client’s safety, can be brought up in hearings in Wisconsin. The teen is facing charges that he allegedly killed Anthony M. Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz during protests that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August. He faces two...
