  • ‘Golden State Killer’ suspect’s defense motion to bar prosecutors from collecting evidence rejected by judge

    first_imgJustin Sullivan/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — A California judge this morning rejected an attempt by defense attorneys to bar a request from prosecutors to collect evidence from “Golden State Killer” suspect Joseph DeAngelo.Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Michael Sweet gave prosecutors the go-ahead to collect DNA samples and fingerprints from DeAngelo, and photograph the 72-year-old suspect’s anatomy.DeAngelo appeared at the hearing handcuffed to a wheelchair. He did not say anything during the court proceedings.His public defender, Diane Howard, had submitted a motion on Wednesday challenging the lawfulness of a search warrant issued to prosecutors to collect the evidence from DeAngelo.Sweet ruled the evidence collection did not violate DeAngelo’s right to due process nor any evidence discovery rules.The judge had delayed the hearing for 24 hours to give him a chance to review the defense motion and the prosecution’s application for the search warrant, which was approved by a magistrate before DeAngelo’s arrest last week.“In this case, the government seeks to execute a warrant issued before the defendant’s arrest and arraignment. But the government’s right to unfettered investigation is substantially curtailed by constitutional concerns with attend to the right to a fair trial and a right to cancel,” the public defender’s office argued in court papers.But prosecutors countered that the evidence collection of DeAngelo’s DNA, fingerprints and photos of his body did not threaten his right to due process because he would not be required to speak when prosecutors gathered the evidence.“In the present case, obtaining the defendant’s major case prints and his DNA sample does not require him to speak or say even a word. Likewise, taking photographs of his person does not require the defendant to share his thoughts or beliefs with law enforcement,” according to court papers submitted by prosecutors.DeAngelo, a former police officer, was arrested on April 24 at his suburban Sacramento home.Detectives used DNA evidence that allegedly links him to a string of 12 murders and more than 50 rapes across California that they say were committed by the “Golden State Killer” between 1976 and 1986. The public defender assigned to him refused to comment today.DeAngelo is ordered back in court on May 14.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

  • Pol Proposes Reforms to Ease Common Core Controversy

    first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A Long Island lawmaker is urging New York State Education Department to delay for a year a plan to store students’ information on cloud-based network linked to the controversial Common Core State Standards.That is one of the nine proposed reforms—five policy recommendations and four bills—that State Sen. John Flanagan (R-East Northport) unveiled to address concerns with the roll out of the new state tests, privacy issues with planned data storage and implementation of the curriculum.“We are listening and we get it,” Flanagan, chairman of the state Senate education committee, told the Press following a news conference announcing the proposed package of reforms Thursday. “The public is beyond frustrated.”Flanagan proposed the measures after hearing more than 30 hours of testimony in five hearings and reviewing more than 1,000 pages of written testimony detailing problems with the roll out of the Common Core standards that were implemented this year.Parents, teachers and administrators have been extremely vocal about the stress and anxiety this education reform has caused in educators and students alike. But, Flanagan said the problem lies with the overall implementation of the standards and not with the standards themselves.“While there was certainly no consensus on Common Core itself, there was a consistent and coherent theme that Common Core standards are laudable and accomplish many positive things for our students,” he said.Aside from delaying the Education Data Portal to ensure student data protection, his policy recommendations to the education department include: expediting federal waivers from mandates on various testing restrictions including those for children with learning disabilities and English language learners; producing missing modules—packets that guide teachers on the curriculum; aligning assessments proportionally to curriculum already implemented; and increasing funding for professional development so that teachers would be more prepared to teach the new curriculum.Flanagan’s proposed legislation includes: a bill that would ban all standardized testing in children from preschool until second grade; an “Unnecessary Testing” bill that would require the state commissioner of education to expedite a review Annual Professional Performance Review plans to eliminate unnecessary assessments; a bill establishing civil and criminal penalties for privacy breaches to the student data portal; and a “Truth-in-Testing” bill that would require an audit and evaluate the testing program and require the state education commissioner to report the effectiveness on the Common Core state tests.These measures are designed to streamline an overwhelmingly complicated system while reducing testing for the children and holding those in charge of implementing the tests accountable, according to Flanagan. But the proposals did not pacify critics.“I was expecting a full meal and I got a Ritz cracker,” said a disappointed Dr. Joe Rella, superintendent of Comsewogue School District and fierce critic of the Regents Reform Agenda.Assemb. Al Graf  (R-Holbrook), who proposed a bill that would completely withdraw the state from the national Common Core and Race to the Top programs, was similarly unimpressed.“The ones we have are garbage,” Graf  said of Flanagan’s proposal to expedite the Common Core curriculum modules for teachers. “Why do we want more?”Rella agreed that nothing short of pausing the education reform full stop to examine each problem and address it properly is acceptable.“Stop it. Fix it,” he said. “And if it can’t be fixed, throw it out.”last_img read more

  • Five challenges facing Solskjaer as Man Utd manager

    first_imgThe Chilean became the club’s highest earner in January 2018 but has scored just five goals for the club, only two of which have come in 23 appearances this season.Solskjaer has previously said only Sanchez himself can recapture the form he showed at Arsenal and Barcelona but at 30 his best days may be behind him.Unless the Norwegian can spark a revival in Sanchez, United will likely have to pick up some of the tab for his reported £14 million ($18 million) a season wages just to ship him out.De Gea a prioritySanchez’s deal has not only been problematic given his own lack of form, but it set a new benchmark for United’s wage bill.David de Gea’s contract expires in 2020 and the Spanish goalkeeper, who has won United’s player of the year award for four of the past five seasons, reportedly wants at least parity with Sanchez.During a disappointing period for the club under three previous managers, De Gea has been a rare shining light and keeping hold of one of their world-class talents is vital.“To know who is the manager for the club next season is helpful for any player to decide where he wants to play,” said Solskjaer.“We’ve got a couple of players we are in talks with and hopefully we can get their futures sorted.”Reign in fiercest rivalsThe Premier League title race makes for grim viewing for United fans as historical and local rivals Liverpool and Manchester City battle it out.Solskjaer has made ending a title drought since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 a top priority but is also realistic that there remains a huge gap to breach.“There is a lot of hard work still to do in the coming months and years to get Man Utd back to where it was before,” warned Neville.Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Ole Gunnar SolskjaerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has achieved his first target by landing the Manchester United manager’s role on a permanent basis but plenty of work remains for the Norwegian to do, starting with Watford’s visit to Old Trafford on Saturday.The 46-year-old was a popular choice to become full-time successor to Jose Mourinho after an impressive caretaker spell in which United won 14 of his 19 games in charge.AFP Sports looks at what comes next and the challenges that lie in wait for Solskjaer.Top-four finish a prioritySince Solskjaer’s arrival, United have cut the gap to the Premier League’s top four from 11 points down to two but a strong finish to the campaign is still needed to secure Champions League football next season.Beat Watford at Old Trafford and United will pull level on points with third-placed Spurs, who have taken just one point from their past four league games and travel to title-chasing Liverpool on Sunday.“Now we’ve given ourselves a great chance to be in the top four, even the top three,” said Solskjaer on Thursday. “That’s got to be the short-term target.”Strengthen the squadRegardless of whether United are in the Champions League or Europa League next season, Solskjaer faces an intense summer of rebuilding.“Now it’s easier to be clear about what we need to do because we will do some business this summer,” said the Norwegian.England wonderkid Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund has been widely reported as a top target for a club record fee but it is in defence that Solskjaer’s former teammate and United captain Gary Neville believes most change is needed.“Defence is the main priority in terms of getting the centre-back pairings right because there have been so many changes,” he told Sky Sports.“Solskjaer is not going to be a success at Man Utd unless he gets the right people around him on recruitment and gets the right players in. That is absolutely essential.”Sanchez for the scrap heap?Interest in Sancho casts even more doubt over Alexis Sanchez’s future.last_img read more
