Jodi Arias to represent self in Arizona death penalty sentencing retrial

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 08:27

Jodi Arias talks with her defense attorney Jennifer Wilmott during a hearing in Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix ArizonaBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona judge agreed on Monday to allow convicted murder Jodi Arias to represent herself during a sentencing retrial to determine if she will face the death penalty for killing her ex-boyfriend in 2008, a court spokesman said.     Judge Sherry Stephens granted the request by Arias during a hearing in Maricopa County Superior Court, allowing her to act as her own lawyer when the retrial begins in September, said spokesman Vincent Funari.     Stephens issued the ruling from the bench after cautioning the former California waitress that she felt it would not be in her best interest to take over from her current attorneys, Funari said.     Arias was convicted last year of murdering Travis Alexander in his Phoenix-area home six years ago in what authorities said was a bloody crime scene. He was found slumped in his shower, stabbed multiple times, his throat slashed and shot in the head.     The same jury that convicted Arias in a high-profile trial that was live-streamed on the Internet to tens of thousands of viewers found her eligible for the death penalty, but deadlocked on whether she should actually be put to death.     The sentencing phase retrial will see a new jury impaneled next month to weigh her fate, but will not be broadcast live.

DOJ: NYC's Rikers Island breaches rights of young inmates

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 08:09

Barbed wire fences surround a building on Rikers Island Correctional Facility in New YorkNew York City's Department of Correction routinely violates the constitutional rights of male teenagers at the Rikers Island jail complex by tolerating a "culture of violence" that permits the savage beating of young inmates, according to a federal report released on Monday. The 79-page report, prepared by the U.S. Justice Department, describes a fearful and brutalized environment in which correction officers regularly batter young men, sometimes after they are handcuffed and dragged out of sight of surveillance cameras. At a press conference, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara called Rikers, one of the country's largest jail complexes, "a place where brute force is the first impulse rather than the last resort." In one case a year ago, a team of correction officers kicked and punched four teenaged inmates and hit them with radios, batons and broomsticks even though they were in handcuffs, the report said. Although Bharara's team only focused on adolescent inmates, the report said there were indications conditions were similar in the general population.
