HARRISBURG, Pa. (Reuters) - A lawyer for Bill Cosby on Tuesday told the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that the judge at the entertainer’s 2018 sexual assault trial should have barred five prosecution witnesses who testified that Cosby had also drugged and raped them. The hearing on Tuesday took place about a year after a lower appellate court rejected a petition by Cosby, now 83, to have his conviction overturned. At least one of the seven Supreme Court justices, Christine Donohue, appeared skeptical of the prosecution’s arguments about the relevance of the women’s testimony. Donohue questioned why the prosecution even needed the testimony of the five women when they had Constand’s own testimony. Stacey Witalec, a spokeswoman for the Supreme Court, said it took an average of 150 days for the justices to deliver a decision.

Officials working with a United Nations human rights group said Monday that former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn should receive both “compensation” and “other reparations” from the Japanese government for its handling of his November 2018 arrest and subsequent detention. Ghosn was arrested shortly after arriving in Tokyo and charged with a series of financial crimes, including the concealment of millions of dollars in income. Since then, a number of people alleged to have assisted his escape have been arrested, including two Americans facing extradition to Japan. At the time of his arrest, he also served as head of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. The U.N. panel said it would refer Ghosn's case to the U.N.'s rapporteur on torture and degrading treatment.

“I’m writing again because this morning, around 10 a.m., an inmate next to me said, ‘It’s here, Chief,'” wrote Young Bird, a Native American from South Dakota. As the summer dragged on and the coronavirus rampaged across middle America, Young Bird kept writing to U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange. Complicating the situation, Lange said, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe had banished Young Bird from his home due to the drug conviction. Following the death of his sister, Young Bird hosted a large dinner in the South Dakota town of Dupree to honor her memory. It was something I’ll never forget.”After Young Bird died, Little Wounded wanted to do the same thing to honor him.

Relatives were initially hesitant to share the news with him, instead waiting several weeks before explaining why Richard DeLisi was unable to return his son’s phone calls. Advocates for DeLisi have worked for decades to secure his early release from prison, citing both health and legal concerns. As more states decriminalize and legalize cannabis, draconian prison sentences need to be revisited, said Chiara Juster, a marijuana criminal reform advocate and lawyer on DeLisi’s legal team. Richard DeLisi appealed that same year but was unsuccessful. When Richard DeLisi is finally released from prison, Rick DeLisi intends to pack up his family and fly to the U.S. despite the pandemic.

The husband of actress Lori Loughlin reported to a federal prison in California on Tuesday to start a five-month sentence for his role in a massive college admissions fraud scheme. Fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, 57, arrived at the medium-security federal penitentiary in Lompoc on Thursday, officials told the Associated Press. She pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and Giannulli to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud.

Actress Lori Loughlin reported to a federal prison in Northern California on Friday to start a two-month sentence for her role in a massive college admissions cheating scandal, according to officials at the prison and the federal prosecutor's office. Loughlin and Giannulli are among the 57 people who have been charged in the sprawling college cheating scandal — dubbed Operation Varsity Blues by the FBI — that rocked college admissions offices and shook public trust in the system. The mastermind of the scheme, Singer, has pleaded guilty but remains unsentenced as federal prosecutors continue to use him as a cooperating witness. Inside the courtroom, she made it a point to sit next to the prosecutor, something no other college cheating scandal defendant did during their courtroom appearances. Despite her high-powered legal team, federal prosecutors continued to stack on the charges, filing four superseding indictments before Loughlin pleaded guilty May 21.
