THE JUICE IS LOOSE: OJ SIMPSON GRANTED PAROLE ON ROBBERY, KIDNAPPING CHARGES

LOVELOCK, NV — O.J Simpson, who was famously acquitted in the double murders of his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994, has been granted parole by a Nevada parole board on his 2008 conviction on multiple counts of robbery and kidnapping.

In a unanimous decision the parole board, which consisted of two men and two women, voted to release the now 70 year old disgraced former football great on the basis of good behavior behind bars.

“I was always a good guy, but could have been a better Christian, and my commitment to change is to be a better Christian,” Simpson claimed.

Simpson, who was imprisoned after staging a robbery inside a Las Vegas hotel room in an effort to forcibly obtain memorabilia which he claimed had once belonged to him, showed a range of emotions during the course of the hearing.

At times appearing defiant and arrogant, the former B-list actor spent a great deal of time telling the parole board what a model inmate he had been. However, through a series of bizzare comments, Simpson claimed that he had never before been in trouble with the law despite being found by a civil jury to be responsible for Brown and Goldman’s murders.

“No one has ever accused me of pulling a weapon on them,” he said despite having been arrested for the bloody slayings in 1994. “I’ve basically lived a conflict free life.”

The former Hertz Rent-a Car spokesman could be released as early as Oct. 1. He has requested permission to carry out the terms of his parole in Florida where he has two grown children.

He had served 9 years of a 9 to 33 year prison sentence.

DUMB CRIMINAL ALERT: DRUG DEALER CALLS COPS FOR HELP IN FINDING STOLEN COCAINE

FORT WALTON BEACH, FL — Police in Florida were recently given a tip on an alleged drug dealer, courtesy the dealer himself after a man, angry that his stash of cocaine had been stolen called the cops pleading that they help him located his hijacked stash.

Police say David Blackmon, 35, of Fort Walton Beach, called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Department on Sunday to complain that someone had stolen a bag of cocaine and $50 in cash from his car.

When officers arrived, they say Blackmon voluntarily confessed to being a drug dealer and claimed that someone had broken into his vehicle while it was parked, stealing the money and a quarter ounce of cocaine.

Upon inspecting the vehicle, deputies say they observed what appeared to be powdered cocaine in clear view on the center console along side a rock of crack cocaine. Officers say they also observed a crack pipe on the car floor near the driver’s seat.

Shortly after Blackmon was arrested and charged with resisting an officer without violence, possessing drug paraphernalia and felony possession of cocaine. Records show (http://www3.co.okaloosa.fl.us/ArchonixXJailPublic/DetailPages/InmateDetails.aspx?ReferenceID=12815&InmateID=151138) he was released a short time later after posting a $4,000 bail.

PAROLE IN JEOPARDY AFTER OJ CAUGHT SQUEEZING HIS JUICE; ACCUSED MURDERER REPORTEDLY CAUGHT PLEASURING HIMSELF IN VIEW OF OTHER INMATES

LOVELOCK, NV — O.J. Simpson, the former football great and one time accused double murderer now serving a 9-33 year prison sentence for kidnapping and burglary, may have jacked up his chances at parole after being caught masturbating within public view.

Simpson, who was famously acquitted of killing his ex wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman only to be found responsible for the brutal slayings by a civil court jury, is expected to face the Nevada parole board on July 20. Although many legal analysts had predicted that he was likely to receive parole based on good behavior, this latest slip up may have caused the now 70 year old to lose his last chance at freedom.

While celebrity website TMZ reports the story can not be authenticated (http://www.tmz.com/2017/07/19/o-j-simpson-masturbating-prison-parole-hearing/), other news sites are claiming sources inside the prison have confirmed the apparent violation.

According to the New York Post (http://nypost.com/2017/07/19/o-j-s-parole-was-almost-derailed-by-a-cookie/), ‘The Juice’ was allegedly caught fondling his fruit in his cell, which is in plain view of other inmates. The act of self passion was reportedly discovered by a female prison guard as she was on patrol.

“O.J. is facing a disciplinary hearing after being written up for masturbating in his prison cell,” a prison source told The Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4710666/OJ-Simpson-caught-masturbating-cell-impact-parole.html). “He was caught by a female corrections officer making her normal rounds,” the source told The Daily Mail. “While it’s not the most serious charge to be written up for in prison, it’s serious enough that any potential parole date may be delayed or his parole denied altogether.”

Simpson has served nearly nine-years of a 33-year sentence for a 2008 conviction for kidnapping and robbery. According to prosecutors, Simpson and members of his entourage confronted a pair of memorabilia dealers who were in possession of Simpson items at the Palace State Hotel and Casino on September 13, 2007 and held the men at gunpoint as they forcibly took the items back.

Simpson was sentenced to 33 years behind bars after a jury found him guilty of all ten counts with which he was charged on October 3, 2008 – exactly 13 years to the day after the B-list movie actor and Hertz spokesperson was acquitted of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

No other arrests were ever made in the Brown-Goldman killings.

‘THEIR KILLER IS OUT THERE’: INDIANA POLICE RELEASE SKETCH OF SUSPECT IN MURDER OF 2 GIRLS

LAFAYETTE, IN– Indiana State Police on Monday released a sketch of who they believe to be the killer of two young girls found murdered in a wooded area last February.

Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were found slain on Feb. 14, one day after the pair were reported missing in Delphi, Indiana, located approximately 60 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

Shortly after the girls’ bodies were discovered, police officials released a grainy photo of a man walking on a nearby bridge snapped at around the time of the pair’s disappearance. Police also released a recording of a man seemingly matching the description of the individual in the photo saying “down the hill” which they say was obtained from German’s cellphone. The photo released Monday by authorities is the first depicting the man’s face.

The suspect, described by police as a white male standing between 5-feet-6 and to 5-feet-10 weighing 180 to 220 pounds, and having reddish brown hair and goatee, has eluded capture despite law enforcement’s best efforts.

During a press conference held as the composite sketch was released, Sgt. Kim Riley told reporters that investigators had been working on the drawing “for a while” and that they were releasing it now because “it needed to come out.”

“We’re going to get to the bottom of this sooner or later,” Riley said. “If the composite helps us get there sooner, that’s what we’re hoping for.”

Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said the comoposite was drawn by an FBI sketch artist based on “recent information” from a witness who claims to have seen the suspect at the time of German and Williams’ deaths.

“This case is not dried up. It’s not a cold case,” Riley adding, noting that authorities receive anywhere from “5 to 10 tips” every day.

Residents of the tight knit town say they hope the newly released sketch brings closure to the case.

“It’s obviously on everyone’s mind. Life has changed in that regard … You can’t drive through here without talking about it,” Mark Northam told the Journal and Courier (http://www.jconline.com/story/news/crime/2017/07/17/new-details-released-delphi-double-homicide-investigation/483717001/). “I think it’s nice to have more information if it is an accurate sketch. It seems like the opportunity to resolve this is sort of fading.”

Siera Farr, a Delphi resident for three years, said the tragedy has left the community gripped with fear.

“A part of me is scared with being out,” Farr said, “but I have to face that fear.”

“Someone here knows something,” she added, “and I just wish they would speak up.”

RICE UNDER FIRE: OBAMA’S FORMER NSA PREPARES TO BE GRILLED ON TRUMP ADMINISTRATION UNMASKING

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor to the Obama administration, is expected to face tough questions as she testifies on Tuesday before the Republican-led House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Rice, who’s been accused of ordering the “unmasking” the names of Trump associates documented in intelligence reports, is expected to address the allegations against her as she testifies before the closed door hearing.

The hearing is just one of many underway as investigators seek to uncover what, if any, interference was caused by Democrats or Republicans in regard to the results of the 2016 presidential election.

Advocates for the Trump administration claim that Rice may have committed a crime by asking government analysts to disclose the names of his associates while surveilling the then Republican presidential candidate in 2016.

Rice, however, has hinted that she is being targeted based upon her gender and her race.

“Why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?” Rice said in an interview with Michael Tomasky for New York Magazine (http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/06/susan-rice-on-trump.html). “I don’t know… I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.”

Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox News his questions for Rice will be cut and dry: “Did you unmask the names and if so why?”

“The American people want to get the truth on all of these issues,” said Jordan (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/07/17/susan-rice-set-to-face-capitol-hill-questions-on-alleged-trump-team-unmasking.html) “…on what Susan Rice may or may not have done.”

“We know what James Comey did because he testified to it, and we know he he leaked a memo through a friend to the New York Times with the stated objective of getting momentum to get a special counsel,” Jordan added. “So I think all this needs to be looked at so the American public can get the truth,” Jordan concluded.

In response to an April 4, 2017 Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch which called for “any and all requests for information, analyses, summaries, assessments, transcripts, or similar records submitted to any intelligence community member agency or any official, employee, or representative thereof” relating to the matter, Judicial Watch reported (http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-obama-nsc-advisor-susan-rices-unmasking-material-obama-library) a response on May 23, 2017 by NSC Access Management Director John Powers which read:

“Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library. You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.”

When reached for comment, a spokesperson for former president Barack Obama, refused to comment on the ongoing controversy.

THE JUICE LOOSE? EXPERTS SAY PAROLE LIKELY FOR OJ SIMPSON

LOVELOCK, NV — O.J. Simpson, the former football player and subject of one of the most televised legal trials in history, may soon be a free man according to legal experts.

Simpson, who was infamously tried and acquitted for the 1994 murders of his former wife Nicole Brown- Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, is currently serving a 9-33 year sentence at Lovelock Correctional Facility in Nevada after being found guilty in 2008 of 12 counts of robbery and kidnapping.

While lawyers who’ve studied Simpson’s case say it’s likely the now 70-year-old will be granted parole at his next hearing, scheduled for July 20, it’s unlikely that the former B-list actor will find himself living the life of luxury he once enjoyed.

Decades of legal woes, in addition to a $25 million dollar civil judgement against him by the Brown and Goldman families, have left the one time millionaire playboy virtually penniless aside from a football pension that’s protected under California law.

“The big question is, if Simpson is paroled, how would he be received? With open arms? Slammed doors?” columnist Scott Ostler wrote of the former Heisman trophy winner’s ongoing dramas in the San Francisco Chronicle (http://www.sfchronicle.com/sports/article/O-J-Simpson-faces-parole-board-this-month-11274407.php). “He would be retried a million times in the court of public opinion, gossip TV and social media. Psychopathic murderer or frame-up victim? Rehabilitated soul or consummate con man?”

Dubbed by the media as the “trial of the century” Simpson’s trial on double murder charges held the attention of public for months. The images of Simpson’s beautiful blonde wife Nicole nearly decapitated on the steps of her Brentwood, California home after being stabbed to death alongside the much younger Goldman horrified and angered the public and the resulting press coverage turned the daily televised hearings into a what many legal analysts declared a media circus.

The fact that Simpson’s alleged victims were white led to a heightened battle over race relations that continued for years after his acquittal.

Most legal analysts who covered the trial declared the not guilty verdict by the mostly African-American jury a case of jury nullification and Simpson was subsequently found responsible for the murders by a civil jury.

In Nevada, parole consideration is based heavily upon good behavior while behind bars. Based on that scenario, Simpson, known now officially as inmate number 1027820 by the Nevada Department of Corrections, is likely to again walk the streets.

“Assuming that he’s behaved himself in prison, I don’t think it will be out of line for him to get parole,” said David Roger, the retired Clark County district attorney.

Not all legal scholars, however, think parole is an open and shut case.

Michael Shapiro, a New York defense lawyer who provided commentary during Simpson’s conviction in Las Vegas in 2008 and his acquittal in Los Angeles in 1995, says the accused murder’s freedom in this particular case is no certainty.

“The judge (in the robbery and kidnapping case) believed he got away with murder,” Shapiro said. “That’s the elephant in the room. If the parole authorities feel the same way, he could be in trouble.”

If granted, Simpson will likely be be released in early October. If denied, he will likely remain behind bars until his next parole hearing, which would be some time in 2022.

POLICE: MEXICAN RESPONSIBLE FOR DEADLY DUI CRASH HAD UNLAWFULLY ENTERED US AT LEAST 7 TIMES

OMAHA, NEBRASKA — An illegal immigrant who police say was responsible for a fiery DUI crash in Nebraska last week had unlawfully entered the United States on at least seven occasions, say police.

Court documents filed by Douglas County prosecutors on Tuesday reveal that Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, was deported to Mexico in 2009, again in 2011 and left the U.S. to return to his home country on at least five other occasions before deportations could be finalized. Garcia-Velasco was also convicted of falsely claiming U.S. citizenship in 2005.

Douglas County Prosecutor Ryan Lindberg on Tuesday asked the judge presiding over the case to set a high bail for Garcia-Velasco because he feared the man might again flee, escaping justice.

“If this is someone who bonds out, I don’t think we’ll see Mr. Garcia-Velasco again,” Lindberg told the judge.

As reported by The Omaha World-Herald (http://www.omaha.com/news/crime/police-say-driver-was-drunk-when-he-crashed-van-at/article_398b1b60-646d-11e7-93c5-c3c3868c64dc.html), police allege Garcia-Velasco was driving while drunk on July 5 when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram van. Police estimate Garcia-Velasco was speeding, going over 100 mph when his van hit a bridge abutment before it rolled and caught fire at around 1 p.m.. Silvano Torres, 58, a passenger in the van, died as a result of his injuries. Another passenger, Jesus I. Gonzalez, 16, was hospitalized and released later the same day.

Garcia-Velasco reportedly told officers that he had consumed 12 beers in the hours leading up to the crash.

Garcia-Velasco’s arrest is just the latest in a series of high profile tragedies that president Donald Trump has cited in his argument for the need to build a wall between the United States in Mexico in an effort to cut down on crime and injury to American citizens.

According to recently published reports (https://rebekahworsham.org/2017/07/11/gettin-outta-dodge-more-illegals-self-deporting-amid-fear-of-trump-administration-says-report/), Trump’s tough talk as led to a trend in which immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally are voluntarily “self deporting” themselves back to their home countries rather than face the sanctions vowed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions who has promised tough penalties for those caught in the U.S. without authorization.

NEW CLUES? POLICE SCOUR WOODED AREA IN SEARCH FOR MISSING OREGON BOY

PORTLAND, OR– Police investigating the mysterious disappearance of a Oregon boy searched a heavily wooded area on Sunday in the hopes of obtaining new clues that may lead to his whereabouts.

Kyron Horman, who disappeared from Skyline Elementary School in Portland, Oregon on June 4, 2010, was reportedly last seen by his then step-mother, Terry Horman in the hallway outside his classroom just after Horman claims she dropped the boy off at school after attending a school science fair that morning. The boy was marked absent from class that day and was reported missing after he failed to arrive home on the school bus as expected.

The then 7-year old boy’s disappearance led to the largest search-and-rescue operation in Oregon’s history.

On Sunday, a search-and-rescue team looking for clues in the boy’s disappearance combed through an area about 5 miles from the boy’s former school. Although police say they collected several items, none appear to have proven relevant to the boy’s whereabouts.

“We want to ensure we leave no stone unturned,” Multnomah County Sheriff spokesman Lt. Chad Gaidos said of the new search, which was conducted in an area that investigators had not examined before.

Terri Horman — who now lives in California and goes by her maiden name, Terri Moulton — has never been named a suspect in the case and denies harming her step-son, although it has been widely reported that she failed two separate polygraph examinations relating to the boy’s disappearance and walked out on a third.

However, the boy’s mother, Desiree Young, has been vocal in her belief that Moulton is responsible for her son’s disappearance.

“My son is the reason I get up every day and fight to bring him home,” Young said in a May event in recognition of National Missing Children’s Day. “I want to see him smile again. I want to hear his laugh and, most of all, I want to feel his hug. I will never give up.”

In early 2017 the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released a newly updated age enhanced photo that indicates what Kyron Horman may look like today at the age of 14. As reported by Oregon Live (http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2017/05/fbi_places_billboards_across_s.html), Young pleaded with the public to continue sharing her son’s photo.

“Some days the hope that our child will come home is all that keeps us going. It’s our job as parents to keep our child’s case in the public eye and keep hope alive so the public keeps looking for all missing children,” Young said.

While officials said they are not following any new specific leads in the case, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office says they want public that they will not give up until Horman is found.

“It’s an investigation that will stay near and dear to our hearts until there’s an answer,” says Gaidos.

In a development seemingly unrelated to her former step-son’s disappearance, Detectives in Roseburg, Oregon announced they are investigating allegations of a murder-for-hire plot involving Terri Moulton that occurred nearly 30 years ago.

The alleged murder-for-hire plot targeted a man named Sean Rea, Moulton’s boyfriend at the time. Rea recalls a scary incident in which he claims a man with a gun confronted him.

“Terri said, ‘He’s here for you!’” Rea recalled.

Court records indicate police have known about the murder-for-hire allegations since 2011. It remains unclear as to why the case wasn’t sent to prosecutors earlier, but sources close to the case say it may be that police did not want their efforts to find Kyron Horman to be hindered by the separate investigation.

Terri Moulton was also recently found not guilty in a criminal case surrounding a gun charge (https://kobi5.com/news/terri-horman-not-guilty-of-gun-charge-55920/). Moulton had been accused of stealing her former roommate’s handgun from a safe. Police say the charge had nothing to do with Kyron Horman’s disappearance.

WILL ‘THE JUICE’ BE SET LOOSE? OJ SIMPSON PAROLE HEARING SET FOR JULY

LOVELOCK, NV — A parole hearing to determine whether or not O.J. Simpson will soon again become a free man has been scheduled for July.

According to a spokesperson for the Nevada Department of Corrections, Simpson, who is serving a nine-to-33-year sentence for kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, will face a parole board on July 20.

Simpson was convicted of the multiple felonies after prosecutors say he tried to steal pieces of his own sports memorabilia from a collector at gunpoint. During his 2008 sentencing hearing, Simpson claimed he was trying to take back family heirlooms and other personal items that had been stolen from him and that he did not know the associates who accompanied him during the heist were armed.

Aside from his history as a former football star and B-list movie actor, Simpson is best known for being accused of viciously murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown- Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman outside Brown-Simpson’s Los Angeles condo on June 12, 1994.

The subsequent trial, dubbed at the time as “the trial of the century” turned into what many legal analysts referred to as a “media circus” as Simpson’s defense team worked to distract jurors from what prosecutors claimed was a “mountain of evidence” by focusing on race relations within the city that were still simmering after the L.A. riots.

The parole board is expected to consider several factors in deciding whether to release Simpson, Nevada defense attorney Dan Hill told CNN.

“Simpson’s age, the fact that he was given parole on the first sentencing batch, weigh in his favor,” Hill said. “So does the fact that he was by all accounts a model prisoner, as does any acceptance of responsibility for his actions.”

Simpson, who will turn 70 in July, was acquitted in the double murders of Brown and Goldman, but was later found responsible for the killings by a civil jury. He is currently being held at Lovelock Correctional Facility, a medium-security prison in the Nevada desert.

If granted parole, the former Heisman trophy winner will be released in October. If denied, commissioners will decide Simpson’s fate at the next parole board meeting, which could be as many as five years away.

‘ALLAHU AKBAR’: STABBING OF OFFICER AT FLINT AIRPORT EYED AS TERROR

FLINT, MICHIGAN — The Wednesday stabbing of a police officer at a Flint, Michigan airport is being investigated as a terror attack amid claims by witnesses that the assailant screamed “allahu akbar” just prior to attack.

According to a FBI spokesperson, Amor Ftouhi, a 50-year-old citizen of Canada, entered Bishop International Airport in Flint around 9:45 a.m., dropped his bags and began ranting about people being killed in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The suspect then began screaming “allahu akbar”, Arabic for “God is great,” before witnesses say he pulled out a knife and began stabbing Officer Jeff Neville in the neck.

FBI Special Agent in Charge David P. Gelios said at a news conference following the incident that Ftouhi shouted “you have killed people in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die” as he was being arrested.

Police confiscated a 12-inch knife with an 8-inch serrated blade covered in blood from the scene.

According to Gelios, Ftouhi was motivated by “hatred of the United States” and there is no evidence thus far to indicate that the attack was part of a larger plot.

Canadian Embassy spokesperson Christine Constantin condemned the attack in a statement shortly after the incident as a “heinous and cowardly act,” and added “our thoughts and sympathies are with the officer and his loved ones.”

Ken Brown, a witness to the attack, told The Flint Journal (http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2017/06/man_stabs_police_officer_in_ne.html#incart_2box_news_flint) that he was at the airport to drop off his daughter when he saw the officer covered in blood.

“The cop was on his hands and knees bleeding from his neck,” said Brown, who says he called for a towel to absorb the flowing blood.

Neville is a lieutenant with the airport’s police department and is expected to make a full recovery.

In a statement released on Twitter, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder asked Americans to “keep the attacked officer in your thoughts and prayers.”
