Joyce Mitchell stands with her lawyer Steven Johnston as she appears before Judge Buck Rogers in Plattsburgh City Court, PlattsburghReports that a sexual relationship had developed between two escaped New York inmates and a prison employee who has been charged with helping them break out 11 days ago illustrates the difficulties of policing relationships within prisons.

New York appeals court hears arguments over grand jury records in chokehold death

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 06/17/2015 - 04:07

Demonstrators calling for justice in the chokehold death of Eric Garner take part in a protest march outside the 120th police precinct in Staten Island, New YorkA New York state appeals court heard arguments on Tuesday over unsealing minutes of a grand jury that declined to indict a white New York police officer in the chokehold death of an unarmed black man. A coalition of groups seeking release of the transcripts told the four-judge panel that grand jury secrecy undermined confidence in the justice system and hampered debate among state lawmakers weighing grand jury reforms. The groups, which included the Legal Aid Society, want the appeals court to overturn a Staten Island justice's decision in March to bar release of records of the grand jury that probed the death of Eric Garner, 43, last year.
