    SAO PAULO (AP) — Carlos Arthur Nuzman, the head of the Brazilian Olympic Committee for more than two decades, was sentenced to 30 years and 11 months in jail for allegedly buying votes for Rio de Janeiro to host the 2016 Olympics. The ruling by Judge Marcelo Bretas became public Thursday. Nuzman, who also headed the Rio 2016 organizing committee, was found guilty of corruption, criminal organization, money laundering and tax evasion.

    A federal judge has blamed the former president for inciting the January 6 Capitol riot, saying that then-President Donald Trump 'created the conditions' for the unrest with his 'lies.' Judge Amit Mehta, of the US District Court for the District of Columbia, indirectly invoked the president's name Friday when sentencing John Lolos to 14 days in jail for his role in the deadly demonstration. 'The fact remains that he and others were called to Washington, DC, by an elected official, prompted to walk to the Capitol by an elected official,' Mehta said. 'People like Mr. Lolos were told lies, were told falsehoods, were told the election was stolen when it was not,' Mehta added, calling Lolos a 'pawn,' according to CNN.   Mehta appears to be the first judge to hold Trump responsible in a Capitol riot case.  Judge Amit Mehta of the US District Court for the District of Columbia said a January 6 rioter was 'called to Washington, DC, by an elected official' and called him a 'pawn' on Friday Mehta sentenced John Lolos, above, to 14 days in jail...
    (CNN)Jacob Chansley, the so-called "QAnon Shaman," is in federal court Wednesday morning to be sentenced for his role in the US Capitol riots.The Justice Department has asked for Chansley to receive a harsh sentence as a way to set an example among the January 6 rioters, and prosecutors have positioned Chansley as emblematic of a barbaric crowd. Since then, Chansley gained fame as the "QAnon Shaman," a figure known in the fringe online movement and for widely shared photos that captured him wearing face paint and a headdress inside the Senate chamber. Judge Royce Lamberth has had Chansley held in jail since his arrest, despite his multiple attempts to gain sympathy and his release. Other judges are likely to look to Lamberth's sentence as a possible benchmark, since Chansley is one of the first felony defendants among more than 660 Capitol riot cases to receive a punishment.

    By Grant Peck | Associated Press BANGKOK — A court in military-ruled Myanmar on Friday sentenced U.S. journalist Danny Fenster to 11 years in prison with hard labor, the maximum penalty under three charges, despite calls by the United States and rights groups for his release. It was the harshest punishment yet among the seven journalists known to have been convicted since the military ousted the elected government of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi in February. Fenster, the managing editor of the online magazine Frontier Myanmar, still faces additional terrorism and treason charges under which he could receive up to life in prison. The court found him guilty on Friday of spreading false or inflammatory information, contacting illegal organizations and violating visa regulations, lawyer Than Zaw Aung said.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 66-year-old Baltimore man will serve a year in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, after he was sentenced for stealing Social Security benefits intended for his mother, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland. Wardell Lester, Jr. stole nearly $224,000 in monthly benefits payments intended for his mother from September 1997 until January 2018 after he did not notify the Social Security Administration she had died September 1997, according to the statement. He falsely reported he spent the money on her behalf but was required to file annual reports documenting the transactions that used those funds, which were supposed to be spent on housing, food, and personal items, according to the statement. Lester admitted to investigators in January 2019 that he spent the money on drugs and living expenses, as well as falsifying accounting forms. He apologized for the theft but continued to do so until the Social Security Administration terminated the benefits in May 2019.

U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper sentenced Jenna Ryan to 60 days in prison, the HuffPost reported Thursday. "I don't think you could have missed the fact that this was no peaceful protest," Cooper said. "You were a cheerleader, you cheered it on."

"We are going to f*cking go in here," Ryan said. "Life or death, it doesn't matter. Here we go." Prosecutors argued for jail time, citing her boast on Twitter that she would not go to jail.

    A Texas woman convicted in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was sentenced to 60 days in federal prison on Thursday despite a tweet in which she claimed she would not go to jail because she was a successful blonde white woman. U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper said during the sentencing that the notoriety of Jenna Ryan, a Texas real-estate agent who defended herself on Twitter and in interviews, meant the country would be watching to see how the courts responded to the siege of Congress. “I think the sentence should tell them that we take it seriously, that it was an assault on our democracy ... And that it should never happen again," Cooper said, according to the Washington Post.

    Haitian gang boss threatens missionaries, Alec Baldwin discharged prop gun: 5 Things Podcast Second Circuit Green Lights Sanctions Prosecution of Turkish State-Run Bank in Case Tied to Trump-Era Scandal © Provided by KPTM Omaha GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — Patrick Kopke has been ordered to pay back nearly $160,000 he stole from the Nebraska State Fair and serve time in jail. Patrick Kopke previously made a no contest plea to three counts of theft by unlawful taking – more than $5,000. A judge accepted his plea and found him guilty in August. Kopke abruptly resigned from the fair in November 2019, claiming the event was going bankrupt. A state audit found Kopke had registered a business in 2019, and the fair had paid around $150,000 to that business without proper documentation. Kopke made a brief statement, apologizing for his actions. Prosecutors say he tarnished the reputation of the fair by taking money that they say he used to buy a pickup and pay off credit cards used “for lavish and frivolous spending.” Kopke’s attorney says his client has a gambling...
    Political author Michael Wolff put forth the idea that Steve Bannon wants the January 6th Committee to prosecute him because of the attention it would bring upon himself. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell spoke to Wolff on Wednesday night to talk about the committee’s move to charge Bannon with criminal contempt of Congress after defying their subpoena. The way Wolff sees it, “this is exactly where Steve Bannon wants to be” since the former Donald Trump adviser will use the legal squabble to try ginning up public interest in himself. “Remember, Steve has been in the wilderness for the last three years since Trump forced him out of the White House,” Wolff said. “But the real pain in Steve’s heart is that the attention has been on Donald Trump — who Steve regards as, as stupid, crazy and a crook — rather than the attention being on Steve Bannon. So, yes, it’s a good day for Steve.” Wolff was referring to how Bannon was cast out of Trump’s orbit years ago because of several unflattering comments he provided for Wolff’s old book...
    A QAnon-loving hairdresser who called the January 6 attack on the US Capitol the 'best f---ing day ever' after briefly breaching the Capitol building will be forced to serve 14 days in jail after Indiana prosecutors asked a judge to throw her behind bars because she is an 'avid consumer of conspiracy theories.'

Bissey commented on the post saying 'best f---ing day ever!! I’ll never forget.

Jenny Cudd, 37, pleaded guilty Wednesday to entering a restricted building, namely the Capitol. Cudd could face up to one year in jail, though the federal guidelines call for zero to six months.

    (CNN)A federal judge on Friday sentenced one of the US Capitol rioters to three months in jail, saying that the punishment should be a warning to other defendants that they deserve incarceration if they deflect responsibility or downplay the attack."It has become evident to me in the riot cases that many of the defendants who are pleading guilty are not truly accepting responsibility," District Judge Thomas Hogan said."They seem to me to be trying to get this out of the way as quickly and as inexpensively as possible -- stating whatever they have to say in the guilty plea, getting probation, and hoping that would be the end of it," he added.Hogan said that defendants who claimed they didn't realize the severity of the riot are "trying to escape responsibility," and that "other participants in that riot who are guilty of an infraction... can expect to receive jail time."His comments came during the sentencing for Robert Reeder, of Maryland, who pleaded guilty in June to unlawfully demonstrating inside the Capitol. Hogan sentenced Reeder to three months in jail, and ordered...
    A woman has been sentenced to four days in jail and banned from Yellowstone National Park for a year after approaching a grizzly bear.  Acting United States Attorney Bob Murray announced Thursday that 25-year-old Samantha Dehring will also have one year unsupervised probation and pay a $1,000 fine and a $1,000 community service payment to the park.  The incident took place on May 10 when Dehring was at Roaring Mountain in Yellowstone and did not move away from a grizzly bear with three cubs.  She stood close to the bears to take pictures while one of them charged at her. Other witnesses got in their cars to give the bears space.  “Wildlife in Yellowstone National Park are, indeed, wild. The park is not a zoo where animals can be viewed within the safety of a fenced enclosure. They roam freely in their natural habitat and when threatened will react accordingly,” Murray said. “Approaching a sow grizzly with cubs is absolutely foolish. Here, pure luck is why Dehring is a criminal defendant and not a mauled tourist.” Dehring pleaded guilty on Wednesday...

    (CNN)Two men who spent 40 minutes in the US Capitol during the January 6 insurrection were each sentenced to 45 days in prison on Wednesday, marking the first time non-violent rioters who were not already incarcerated will be sent to jail.District Judge James Boasberg sentenced Air Force veteran Derek Jancart and his friend Erik Rau, both from Ohio, to serve 45 days.

    OAKLAND — An Alameda County Superior Court judge sentenced two former Alameda County Sheriff’s deputies in connection with their conduct toward Santa Rita Jail inmates during several episodes of abuse, authorities said. In a statement Wednesday, the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office said Justin Linn and Erik McDermott were sentenced to four years and four months in state prison after each pleading to eleven felony counts of assault and dissuading a witness by threat or force last month. Linn and McDermott, who worked as deputies at a housing unit at Dublin’s Santa Rita jail, were arrested and charged with directing two inmates to abuse at least five other inmates by throwing bodily fluids. One attack victim later filed suit against the former deputies. According in part to an inmate’s testimony, the two then provided the abusers with extra food, supplies or time outside their housing pods. Two other deputies involved in the incidents managed to avoid jail time. In a statement, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley decried the former deputies’ actions, saying “[they] directed, facilitated, enabled and committed sadistic and...

    A court in China has reportedly sentenced a Canadian businessman being held in 'secret jail' for alleged spying to 11 years in prison. Michael Spavor, and his fellow compatriot Michael Kovrig, were arrested in 2018 by officials in China and charged with spying just weeks after Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Vancouver to face fraud charges in United States. His sentencing comes as lawyers in Canada representing Meng make a final push to convince a court there not to extradite her to the United States - amid escalating diplomatic conflict between the three nations. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has previously said Spavor and Kovrig were arrested on 'trumped-up charges' to 'pressure' Meng's release. He has also said Canada was fulfilling extradition treaty obligations with the U.S. by detaining her.  Spavor 'was convicted of espionage and illegally providing state secrets,' the Intermediate People's Court in the city of Dandong said.  China also confiscated 50,000 yuan of Spavor's personal assets - about $7,713 - and said he'll be deported after completing his sentence.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – A woman who hoarded cats, and allowed some to starve to death, in her South Florida apartment has been sentenced to 364 days in jail. Cheryn Smilen, 56, pleaded guilty to animal cruelty and will now be banned from owning or trying to rescue animals, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald. READ MORE: Blue Origins Historic Flight Is A Success “You have to stay away from animal-rescue organizations,” Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Alberto Milian told her during a hearing on Monday. Smilen fed street cats nightly and began hoarding them inside the small efficiency apartment. Neighbors told investigators they would often hear the cats scratching and crying at the windows, but they never saw Smilen. A horrible smell eventually brought police to the home nearly three years ago. Once inside, investigators found some cats emaciated and malnourished, and bones littered the scene, suggesting some cats had eaten each other, according to the Herald. Miami-Dade police detective Judy Webb testified in August 2018 that she saw “dead cats over dead cats over dead cats.” Evidence suggested they...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) –A Florida man is now first U.S. Capitol rioter convicted of a felony and sentenced to jail time. Monday, a judge sentenced Paul Allard Hodgkins to eight months behind bars. It’s the first punishment handed down for a felony charge in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and one that could help determine the severity of other sentences in hundreds of pending cases. READ MORE: South Floridians Continue To Stand In Solidarity With Cuba U.S. District Judge Randolph Moss said the 38-year-old played a role, if not as significant as others, in one of the worst episodes in American history. Thousands of rioters loyal to then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol and disrupted the certification of Joe Biden’s election win, in a stunning display of public violence. “That was not, by any stretch of the imagination, a protest,” Moss said. “It was … an assault on democracy.” He added: “It left a stain that will remain on us … on the country for years to come.” Moss acknowledged Hodgkins’ sentence could set a benchmark for future cases. And deciding...
    GRAND COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) — An Avon resident, Bryan Johnson, was sentenced by a judge to 10 months in jail Wednesday. Johnson faced felony manslaughter and negligent homicide charges following a trench collapse at his company’s Granby worksite that fatally injured worker Rosario Martinez. Martinez, 50, was installing a water service line at a residential construction site when the accident happened on June 14, 2018. READ MORE: Company Fined $31K Following Trench Collapse That Killed Two Workers According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Martinez had been hired to do drywall and carpentry work by Johnson’s company, ContractOne, Inc., and was not trained for trenching or excavation work. Other employees present during the accident had been not trained in those areas of expertise, either. This despite the same trench having collapsed the day before, per investigators. “The evidence collected during OSHA’s investigation…reflects particularly egregious behavior,” said OSHA Regional Administrator Nancy Hauter. “Trenching is one of the most dangerous activities in the construction industry and Bryan Johnson failed to take any affirmative steps to protect...
