U.S. prosecutors, lawyers for plotter seek sentencing delay

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 00:38
By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors and lawyers for Jose Padilla, who in 2007 was convicted of terrorism-related crimes, asked to delay sentencing for a fourth time after an appeals court in 2011 ruled his initial 17-year sentence too lenient. United States District Court Judge Marcia Cooke in Miami in 2008 rejected prosecutors' argument that Padilla, a former Chicago gang member turned al Qaeda recruit, deserved a life sentence. Padilla’s past 17 arrests and murder conviction make him a career criminal who deserves "at or near the maximum term," according to a Feb. 5 motion filed by prosecutors. Then-President George W. Bush ordered him to be held as an "enemy combatant" and interrogated in a South Carolina military prison.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 00:16

Marijuana is seen in the hand of a person after the law legalizing the recreational use of marijuana went into effect in Seattle, WashingtonBy Jimmy Lovaas SEATTLE (Reuters) - Washington state took the final step in legalizing recreational marijuana use on Monday when officials began issuing retail licenses to stores that could start selling cannabis 24 hours later. The Washington State Liquor Control Board has said many applicants failed final inspections, and some municipalities also have banned retail pot sales. Washington is the second state after Colorado to allow retail sales of recreational marijuana to adults under a heavily regulated and taxed system that voters approved in November 2012. Possession of marijuana is illegal under federal law, but the U.S. Justice Department has said it will not intervene in states with "strong and effective regulatory and enforcement systems." Once a retailer receives a marijuana license, the business is cleared to place an order with a licensed processor that must quarantine the product for 24 hours before delivering it to stores.
