Lawyer for accused 9/11 plotter alleges mistreatment at Guantanamo

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/13/2015 - 02:45
By Tom Ramstack FORT MEADE, Md. (Reuters) - An attorney for a Saudi man charged in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks accused his U.S. jailers at the Guantanamo Bay military prison on Thursday of mistreatment. The charges by defense attorney Walter Ruiz at a pretrial hearing at Guantanamo prompted arguments about whether the remaining 122 inmates at the prison in Cuba should be treated under standards of U.S. or international law. “Constitutional rights do not stop at a prison door,” said Ruiz, who is defending Mustafa al-Hawsawi, 46, against war crimes charges.

Utah mother pleads guilty to murdering six of her newborn infants

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/13/2015 - 02:43

Megan Huntsman appears in court in ProvoA Utah mother pleaded guilty to charges she murdered six of her newborn babies over the course of a decade and stuffed their bodies in cardboard boxes in the garage of her former home. Megan Huntsman, who police said confessed to the killings while suffering from methamphetamine and alcohol addiction, will be sentenced April 20. Huntsman is not eligible for the death penalty because the murders, which took place between 1996 and 2006, predate changes in the law that would have made the offense a capital crime in Utah. She entered her plea as she stood downcast in a Provo, Utah, courtroom, her wrists shackled to her waist, her head bowed, softly uttering "guilty" to each of the six counts.

A powerball Lottery ticket is shown in this photo illustration after being purchased at a gas station in San DiegoA food mart in a small city north of Dallas, Texas, and a gas station in southern Puerto Rico were two of three places where winning tickets were sold in the estimated $564.1 million U.S. Powerball lottery, officials said on Thursday.

Little League International has stripped Chicago's Jackie Robinson West team of its national title after finding the team falsified its boundary map. The league made the announcement Wednesday morning, Feb. 11, 2015, saying the Chicago team violated regulations by placing players on the team who didn’t qualify because they lived outside the team’s boundaries. Little League International also suspended Jackie Robinson West manager Darold Butler from league activity. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)CHICAGO (AP) — Hours after Little League International announced its stunning decision to strip a Chicago team of its national championship, the city's mayor was on the phone asking the organization to reverse a decision that he said unfairly made the young players responsible.
