U.S. House Requests Info on Local Officials’ Role in 2006 Epstein Case

first_imgThe U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Reform is setting its sights on reviewing “the role of state or local officials” in the secret non-prosecution deal and jail treatment given to Jeffrey Epstein in Palm Beach County more than a decade ago.Letters sent to the U.S. Justice Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Friday show that the Committee is requesting a long list of documents and emails related to the case.According to House Representative and committee member Lois Frankel, “We are going to try to get anything we can. I know they are serious about looking at the Epstein case.”Specifically, the committee is looking for information about how the non-prosecution agreement was kept from Epstein’s teenage victims, as well as how the Palm Beach multimillionaire was allowed to spend six days a week, 12 hours a day on work release while he served 13 months of an 18-month jail sentence.Although no local officials are named in the letters, Frankel says she wants to hear testimony from Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw and former State Attorney Barry Krischer, as well as former U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta.Current State Attorney Dave Aronberg and Clerk & Comptroller Sharon Bock are fighting the public release of those documents.Acosta’s office worked out the non-prosecution agreement with Epstein’s attorneys in 2008. In return, federal prosecutors scrapped a 53-page indictment that could have sent Epstein to prison for decades.Krischer has denied having any role with the non-prosecution agreement, although The Palm Beach Post found emails revealing that he helped broker the deal between Acosta’s office and Epstein’s defense attorneys.Under the deal, Epstein pleaded guilty to two felony prostitution-related charges. He was then allowed to leave the jail under work release in order to work at his newly formed Florida Science Foundation. However, one woman says she was flown in as a teenager in order to have sex with him there.Epstein was charged with sex trafficking in New York last July, when additional victims went public with their allegations. He hanged himself in a Manhattan jail cell the following month.The Oversight Committee has given a January 3 deadline for the documents to be turned over.They have given the same deadline to Attorney General William Barr.U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra of West Palm Beach found last February that federal prosecutors violated the Crime Victims’ Rights Act when they concealed the existence of the non-prosecution agreement. However, he ruled last September that Epstein’s death meant the judge could not discard the agreement, which also protected Epstein’s accused co-conspirators.last_img read more

Jordan Hill a bright spot in Lakers’ 107-99 loss to Nets

first_imgJordan Clarkson (18 points), Wesley Johnson (17 points), Wayne Ellington (13 points) and Jabari Brown (11 points) also scored in double-figures.But Scott argued that Hill “really gave us a chance to win the game. Without him tonight, we probably don’t even get this close.”Hill’s initial admission on not feeling prepared partly explains Scott’s season-long concern about his play. Despite Hill posting career-highs in points (12.3 per game), rebounds (eight) and playing time (27.5 minutes), Scott believes the Lakers forward does not consistently hustle. “I still think he can play harder,” Scott said. “That’s one thing I’m a little disappointed in. From last year on the outside looking in, I thought he was a real energy guy. I don’t think he is that right now. But he has to get to that point.”Hill provided that energy against Brooklyn, though it did not matter much. The Lakers had absences for reasons including ailments (Jeremy Lin’s upper respiratory infection) and healthy scratches (Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis). Scott faulted his team for not competing in the first quarter, in which the Nets outscored them 30-19. He also blamed the Lakers for making “boneheaded plays” against Brooklyn center Brook Lopez, who had 30 points on 13-of-22 shooting and 11 rebounds. “It’s more disappointing,” Scott said. “I understand it’s late in the season and guys get to the point where they’re frustrated, minds start to wander and you think about the summer. But we’re in a situation right now with the guys that we have, they still have to look at the future. Everybody is getting evaluated.”A segment of Lakers fans may care more about the team’s NBA Draft lottery odds than Scott’s contention that the final 10 games will heavily influence which players he wants to return next season. With the Lakers (19-53) holding the NBA’s fourth-worst record, they have a 10.4-percent chance to land the No. 1 pick as well as an 82.8-percent chance to retain their top-five protected pick otherwise owed to Philadelphia. The Lakers could improve those chances with a loss today to the Sixers (18-56). But the games still mean something to the Lakers, including Hill, who said he hopes the Lakers exercise the $9 million team option they hold on him for the 2015-16 season.“I’ve had fun here and love the staff,” Hill said. “I love my teammates. But you’ll never know if you’ll be back.”It also remains unclear if Hill will have a chance to prove his case against the Sixers, though Scott said he will consider playing Hill and Boozer together while sitting Tarik Black and Robert Sacre. But Hill pledged he will improve his effort, just as he showed in his unexpected appearance against Brooklyn. “I’m playing a lot more minutes this year. I’m trying to adapt, ” Hill said. “I know how to keep myself at a good pace. I can keep going out there and keep playing 30 minutes a game if I can. I just have to stay with it.” NEW YORK >> An hour approached before tipoff, and Lakers forward Jordan Hill believed he would sit again.Lakers coach Byron Scott gave him that impression after Hill became a healthy scratch the past three games for the sake of developing the team’s younger players. But Scott reconsidered, causing Hill to hesitate when his coach asked if he felt ready.Hill soon said otherwise, but the moment revealed a bit of irony, for two different reasons. Scott believed Hill represented one of the few players who actually competed consistently in the Lakers’ 107-99 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday at Barclays Center after Hill had a team-high 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting and 16 rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Majestic Mata inspires Manchester United to first Champions League win in 18 months

first_img1 Juan Mata Juan Mata scored one and set up the other as Manchester United recovered from a goal down to pick up their first victory in the Champions League proper since March 2014 with a 2-1 win over Wolfsburg.The Bundesliga side went ahead after just four minutes at Old Trafford as Daniel Caligiuri beat the offside trap to slip past David De Gea.United pressed hard for an equaliser and it came before half-time through Mata’s penalty after Caligiuri had handled.The Spaniard then turned provider with an outrageous piece of skill for Chris Smalling to strike the winner after the break and, despite substitute Andre Schurrle’s late chance, the Red Devils held on for a vital three points.With United seeking to recover after a 2-1 defeat to PSV on Matchday 1, it was the visitors who exposed the Red Devils’ flimsy defence to steal an early lead.Antonio Valencia, never the most natural right-back, failed to step up with the rest of the home backline, allowing Caligiuri to confidently finish past De Gea with no player in red within yards of him.United’s response was impressive though, and Mata looked destined to find the far corner but saw his curling effort cleared away by a last-ditch dive from Dante.Anthony Martial was in sparkling form yet again after his exhilarating start to his United career, and he showed individual inspiration to jink past a few Wolfsburg defenders before firing narrowly wide.The French teenager then raced to the byline and squared for Wayne Rooney, who inexplicably blazed over with the goal at his mercy.United did level proceedings just after the half hour mark and it was goalscorer Caligiuri who became the villain, handling Mata’s cross before the Spaniard coolly dispatched the resultant spot-kick.Mata then brilliantly engineered a chance for Memphis Depay, but the Dutchman was denied by Diego Benaglio’s feet to maintain parity at the break.Eight minutes into the second half, Mata produced a sublime piece of improvisation to scoop a through ball to Smalling who steered past the despairing Benaglio.United’s intensity then dropped drastically after edging ahead, and former Chelsea man Schurrle nearly made them pay for their complacency but could only drag wide after twisting and turning past Daley Blind.While Rooney had a relatively quiet night in front of goal, the United captain made a vital block to clear Dante’s goal-bound effort as the Bundesliga runners-up pushed in vain for a late leveller.In the other match in Group B, CSKA Moscow survived a late fightback from PSV Eindhoven to win 3-2 in Russia, meaning all four sides are level on three points after two games.last_img read more
