An Apple Valley man who was killed by San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies has been identified as a former California Highway Patrol officer.


Francis Murphy Rose III, 42, was shot and killed about 6:21 p.m. Monday after he fired shots at deputies in a San Bernardino sheriff’s helicopter in Apple Valley, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

He died at the scene.

Deputies initially responded to the 9000 block of Buena Vista Street after receiving multiple calls about shots being fired in the neighborhood.



FEBRUARY 04, 2015

When deputies in patrol cars arrived, they exchanged gunfire and Rose was shot, authorities said. No deputies were injured during the shootout.

CHP officials confirmed Tuesday that Rose was a patrol officer with the department and reported to the Barstow area office.

Rose graduated from the CHP Academy in August 2009 and separated from the department in March 2013, CHP Sgt. Mario Lopez said.

CHP officials declined to reveal details about his separation fro

After video surfaces, grand jury charges 2 Philadelphia policemen in beating

Feb 5 2015

Two Philadelphia police officers were charged Thursday with beating a man on a scooter nearly two years ago and lying about it, resulting in wrongful charges against him.

A Philadelphia grand jury decided to charge Officers Sean McKnight and Kevin Robinson after the district attorney presented evidence. The use of prosecutor-led grand juries met deep scrutiny across the country last year after several high-profile investigations resulted in no charges for officers involved in the deaths of suspects in Ferguson, Mo., and New York City.

Violence erupts after grand jury declines to indict Ferguson officer

In Philadelphia, charges came after the surprise emergence of a surveillance video that shows two officers pummeling a scooter rider. The scene appeared to contradict the officers' original account of the incident, in which they had portrayed the suspect, Najee Rivera, as a violent and vicious attacker.

“The video undermined every aspect of the officers’ account of the incident," Philadelphia Dist. Atty. Seth Williams said at a televised news conference Thursday, appearing alongside Police Commissioner Charles H.

http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/latestnews/Former-police-officers-in-Puerto-Rico-jailed-for-robbery


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) says a former sergeant from the Police of Puerto Rico (POPR) has been sentenced to serve 101 months in prison for his involvement in a July 2012 home invasion robbery in the town Bayamon.

The DOJ said another former officer was also sentenced to serve 24 months in prison for lying to US federal agents about his role in the same robbery and for his participation in a second, unrelated robbery.

Jorge Fernandez-Aviles, 49, of Carolina, Puerto Rico, pleaded guilty on October 7, 2014, to robbery and firearms charges, and was sentenced to 101 months in prison.

Deceased Detroit narcotics cop reportedly tied to FBI probe is named in pot lawsuit

http://www.metrotimes.com/Blogs/archives/2015/02/11/deceased-detroit-narcotics-cop-reportedly-tied-to-fbi-probe-named-in-pot-lawsuit


Wed, Feb 11, 2015 at 10:51 PM


A Detroit police officer who committed suicide last month while reportedly being investigated for corruption is named in a civil lawsuit filed Wednesday that alleges he — and several other officers — unlawfully seized marijuana plants from a Warren grower.

Timothy and Hatema Davis, of Warren, say members of the Detroit Police Department's now-disbanded narcotics unit forcibly entered their home in December 2013 with assault rifles drawn, demanded to know if they had any money, and seized nearly fifty marijuana plants, according to the complaint. Timothy Davis was legally licensed to operate a marijuana grow facility, the complaint says.

One of the officers named as a defendant in the complaint, James Napier, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound last month while he was being investigated by the FBI and Detroit Internal Affairs for narcotics corruption. Detective Napier was identified by The Detroit News, citing two police sources "familiar with an investigation into corruption in the Narcotics Section," as one of the officers under investigation.

June West, director of communications for the Detroit Police Department, confirmed Wednesday evening that "a small group

Former FBI agent Jerry Nau arrested on domestic battery charges


Posted Feb. 13, 2015 @ 3:16 pm
Updated Feb 13, 2015 at 3:45 PM

BARTONVILLE — A former FBI agent who spent five months in a penitentiary for his role in the disappearance of tens of thousands of dollars in drug money once again faces criminal charges.
Jerry Nau, 47, of 4665 W. Tuscarora Road in Bartonville allegedly shoved his girlfriend, then punched himself in the face when she threatened to call police Thursday night. Nau told officers the woman shoved and punched him, according to a report on the incident.
Nau was booked into the Peoria County Jail early Friday on charges of domestic battery and obstructing justice. He remained in custody Friday afternoon.
Bartonville officers responded about 11:50 p.m. Thursday to a call of a disturbance at a home on West Gulf Stream Avenue, where a 35-year-old woman told police Nau was intoxicated, argumentative and refusing to leave. Police found Nau lying down in a bedroom, his face red and swollen beneath his right eye.
Nau told an officer he and his girlfriend were arguing in the bathroom when she pushed him, causing him to fall over backwards into the bathtub. He said she then punched him, according to the report.
The woman told officers she and Nau had been at a bar together earlier in the night, but she came home and he stayed. Nau arrived at her house drunk and pounding on the door about 20 minutes before police were called, according to the report.
The woman said they began to argue in the bathroom, and Nau shoved her out of the room. She said she then pushed back, causing him to fall into the bathtub. When he got up, he got in her face and went “toe to toe” with her as if he was going to fight her “like a man,” according to the report.
When the woman said she would not fight him and was going to call police, Nau punched himself thre

Former Deputy Found Dead After Allegedly Shooting Ex-Wife, Sheriff, Deputy
collapse story

Authorities were searching for clues in a bizarre series of events Sunday night after a former sheriff's deputy, who was accused of fatally shooting his ex-wife, and wounding a sheriff and another deputy, was then found dead with another man.

The two officers were shot while responding to a domestic abuse call in Clarksville, Georgia, at about 7:20 p.m. ET, the state patrol told NBC

When the officers arrived at the home of former deputy Anthony Gianquinta, they found a woman, the suspect's ex-wife, in a garage and an armed man on the scene who took shots at them both.

The Habersham County Sheriff, Joey Terrell, and a deputy identified as William Zigan were transported to local hospitals for treatment. The sheriff was hit in the right arm, and the deputy was hit in the upper clavicle/chest area, according to Mark Perry with t

Indicted Narco Cops Lose Hail-Mary Motion


http://www.courthousenews.com/2015/02/25/indicted-narco-cops-lose-hail-mary-motion.htm



- Ahead of a major racketeering trial against Philadelphia narcotics officers next month, a federal judge refused to toss charges that they robbed suspects.
John Speiser and Linwood Norman are two of the six officers indicted by a grand jury in July 2014 on racketeering charges for systematic theft of thousands of dollars while on patrol.
There have been dozens of civil complaints against these officers since that indictment, and dozens more precede it.
In one August 2014 complaint, a woman claims that five of the officers dragged her to a house, demanded to know where money was, called her a "nigger lover" and told her to kill herself.
With their criminal case scheduled to begin in two weeks, U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno on Tuesday denied a motion by Speiser and Norman to quash several counts of the indictment. The 23-page opinion deems the federal statutes sufficiently clear to indicate that their theft was against the law.
Speiser had argued that his failure to report a theft of $3,900 constituted a false entry rather than an omission, which lacks clear guidance in the 3rd Circuit and thus averts federal jurisdiction. Judge Robreno wrote that, despite a lack of precise precedent, enough courts have covered such missteps to be included under the false-entry statute.

http://fox59.com/2013/04/10/former-fbi-agent-from-carmel-pleads-guilty-to-child-pornography-charges/



A local former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent arrested on child pornography charges filed a petition to enter a guilty plea.

Donald Sachtleben was arrested in May 2012, following an investigation into the distribution of child pornography. Authorities said they were able to trace online activity back to Sachtleben’s Carmel home.

According to court documents, Sachtleben hid behind the email ‘pedodave69@yahoo.com’ and openly traded child porn. In one email he attached nine images of child pornography and child erotica and wrote:

“Saw your profile… Hope you like these and can send me some of (y)ours. I have even better ones if you like.”

Police obtained a search warrant on May 3. During an initial forensic examination of Sachtleben’s laptop computer, approximately 30 images and video files containing child pornography were reportedly discovered.

Sachtleben, a Northwestern University graduate, worked for the FBI from 1983 until his retirement in 2008

Two Sentenced for Role in Robert Lustyik Bribery Case



Two Connecticut residents were sentenced to federal prison on Wednesday for their roles in a bribery scheme to obtain confidential, internal law enforcement documents and information from a former FBI Special Agent in White Plains, New York.

Rizve Ahmed, aka “Caesar,” 36, of Danbury and Johannes Thaler, 51, of New Fairfield were sentenced to 42 months in prison and 30 months in prison, respectively, according to a news release from the US Department of Justice. In October 2014, both defendants pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy to commit wire fraud and honest services fraud.

In pleading guilty, Thaler and Ahmed admitted that, from September 2011 through March 2012, Thaler and FBI Special Agent Robert Lustyik solicited payments from Ahmed, in exchange for Lustyik’s agreement to provide internal, confidential documents and other confidential information to which Lustyik had access by virtue of his position as an FBI Special Agent. Thaler was Lustyik’s friend, and Ahmed, a native of Bangladesh, was an acquaintance of Thaler. The confidential documents and information pertained to a prominent citizen of Bangladesh who was affiliated with a political party opposing Ahmed’s views. Ahmed requested the confidential information to help him locate and harm his political rival and others associated with the intended victim.

As part of the scheme, Lustyik and Thaler exchanged text messages about how to pressure Ahmed to pay them additional money in exchange for confidential information.

Former St. Clair County sheriff pleads guilty to stealing recovered property
Tuesday, March 10, 2015



The former sheriff of St. Clair County, Mo., pleaded guilty in federal court to stealing property recovered in criminal cases and to selling a stolen firearm.

Ronald E. Snodgrass, 47, of El Dorado, Springs Mo., pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge M. Douglas Harpool to theft concerning programs receiving federal funds.

Snodgrass served three terms as the elected sheriff in St. Clair County, from Jan. 1, 2001, through Dec. 31, 2012. He lost his bid for reelection in 2012.

According to Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, during Snodgrass's tenure, the St. Clair County Jail handled more than 100 federal inmates for a fee. This agreement with the U.S. Marshal Service provided St. Clair County with the majority of its income.

By pleading guilty, Snodgrass admitted that he illegally took possession of a John Deere zero turn mower, which was recovered stolen property, said Dickinson. The owner of the mower had reported it being stolen on Nov. 4, 2008, and received a payment of $13,638 from Chubb Insurance Company. The mower was recovered by the sheriff's department on Aug. 14, 2009.

According to the plea agreement, the mower was in good condition and worth more than $5,000.

On Sept. 2, 2009, Snodgrass contacted Chubb Insurance and claimed the mower had a tow bill and storage fees of $525, said Dickinson in a press release.

At that time, the stolen mower was in the impound lot and was being held as evidence in a criminal case. There was no legal authority for Snodgrass to charge storage fees for items recovered as stolen property, the release noted.

Snodgrass told Chubb Insurance he would be interested in purchasing the mower in exchange for taking care of the tow bill, storage fees and payment of $500 to Chubb, said Dickinson.

The release noted that on Sept. 3, 2009, Snodgrass contacted Chubb Insurance and said he would like to purchase the mower. At that time, the insurance company informed him that the mower would have to be assessed for salvage. On the same day, Snodgrass contacted Chubb Insurance again and claimed the tow and storage bill of the mower was now "over $600"; he offered to take care of the tow, storage bill fees and pay Chubb Insurance an additional $500 for the stolen mower. Chubb Insurance accepted the offer from Snodgrass.

Snodgrass admitted that there were never any storage fees, said Dickinson. Under state law, any unclaimed property should have been sold at a sheriff's auction. Instead of disposing of the mower through a public sale or auction,

Retired FBI agent alleges San Joaquin Sheriff's Office sabotaged Speed Freak Killers crime scene

03/14/2015 01:05:36 PM


- In the latest explosive allegation against the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office, a federal agent assisting with the notorious "Speed Freak Killers" case has accused the agency of sabotaging crime scenes to cover up the purported destruction of missing persons files.

Jeff Rinek, a retired FBI agent asked by the bureau to assist with the case, alleges that the reason the Sheriff's Office used a backhoe in 2012 to search digs linked to the killers in San Andreas and Linden -- commingling bones recovered from a well -- was that it thought it had permanently deleted the missing persons files two years earlier and wanted to make sure the recovered remains couldn't be identified.

In fact, emails show, state Department of Justice employees actually saved the missing persons case files in 2010.

"(The Sheriff's Office) actions at the Linden well were intentional to catastrophically destroy the crime scene," Rinek said. "In my opinion, it's nothing short of a felony. ... This is the most heinous thing I've ever seen."

Rinek, who interviewed "Speed Freak" killer Wesley Shermantine on death row after the FBI asked him to assist the case, is among a growing chorus of law enforcement and elected officials and families of missing persons who have complained that San Joaquin County Sheriff Steve Moore refused to help investigate other cases that may have been linked to serial killers Shermantine and Loren Herzog.

Asked about the retired FBI agent's allegations Friday, Moore said: "Mr. Rinek doesn't know what he's talking about."

Shermantine and Herzog -- dubbed the "Speed Freak Killers" for their methamphetamine-fueled killing spree that began in the 1980s and ended with the friends' 1999 arrests -- were convicted of four murders, although their names have surfaced as suspects in several missing persons cases, including 9-year-old Hayward girl Michaela Garecht, who was abducted more than two decades ago.
Michaela Garecht was 9 years old when she was kidnapped in 1988.
Michaela Garecht was 9 years old when she was kidnapped in 1988.

In February 2012, after Shermantine detailed where bodies were buried, investigators dug and found human remains. The remains were identified as missing persons after the Department of Justice returned the files to the Sheriff's Office the following month.

Just this week, one victim's mother, who has sued the Sheriff's Office over its handling of the case, filed a motion to unseal documents. The motion included explosive emails that appear to show the Sheriff's Office requesting cancellation of missing persons cases, along with declarations from Hayward and Reno police detectives complaining about being shut out by Moore's department.

Retired San Joaquin County deputy district attorney Thomas Testa said he clearly remembers taking calls from friends and family of missing persons and the investigators trying to solve those cases -- all asking the same question: Why wouldn't the county's top law man help them find out whether Shermantine and Herzog were involved?

What Would The Nevada Commission Do If Floyd or Manny Tested Positive?
BY March 20, 2015



http://www.thesweetscience.com/news/mayweather-vs-pacquiao/20496-what-would-the-nevada-commission-do-if-floyd-or-manny-tested-positive

Floyd-Mayweather-Manny-Pacquiao

Really nobody wants to go there, and ponder the route to take should the unthinkable happen, and one of the fighters involved in the May 2 super fight, boxing's Super Bowl, the Clash for all the Cash, test positive for a banned substance, a PED.

But anyone involved in the sport at any high level, with any length of time in the game, knows that it is wise to consider all possible variables, and even some imponderables.

The Twittersphere churned on Thursday night, when the LA Times reporter Lance Pugmire broke a story that touched on what might happen if, say, Floyd Mayweather tested positive in the lead-up to May 2. Team Pacquiao wanted to insert a clause in the contract for the bout which would penalize Floyd $5 million for the infraction, reported Pugmire, and Team Mayweather balked. The Twittersphere barked, with Mannyiacs bellowing that Floyd's stance indicated a guilty conscience. The Floyd rooters pointed out that just maybe the "Money" man realized that a mere $5 million penalty, aimed at either fighter should their sample come up dirty, would be a mere pittance in the grand scheme of things, and posited the theory that maybe any penalty would be a much grander sum.

The whole kerfuffle led me to ponder what might happen if one or in a beyond ludicrous scenario, both men tested positive. I think the chances of that are slim, and near none, myself, as I am of the mindset that I will assume guys are fighting clean unless incontrovertible evidence is presented to me. Regardless, I reached out to Bob Bennett, a man who served in the Marines and then the FBI for 24 1/2 years, and currently serves as the executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I wanted to get a sense of what the NSAC would do if Floyd or Manny tested positive prior to their May 2 tangle.

Dunwoody Detective pleads guilty to disclosing law enforcement info in exchange for kickbacks
March 23, 2015 |
Former Dunwoody Police Detective Robert Pasquale Bentivegna has pleaded guilty to disclosing sensitive law enforcement information in exchange for receiving kickbacks for him and his family.



ATLANTA, GA, March 23, 2015 – The Post Reports – Acting United States Attorney John A. Horn reported in a Monday release former Dunwoody Detective Robert Pasquale Bentivegna, 64, of Woodstock, GA has pleaded guilty to disclosing sensitive law enforcement information in exchange for receiving kickbacks for him and his family.

Bentivegna reportedly accessed the information from the GCIC database.

From the release:

“It is a sad day when a career law enforcement officer turns his back on decades of public service by selling his access to sensitive law enforcement information,” said Acting U.S. Attorney John Horn said in a release. “Bentivegna’s conduct undermines trust in law enforcement and could have exposed the public

, Director, Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD), made the announcement. Rafael Duran, 43, of Miami, made his initial appearance before United States Magistrate Jonathan Goodman. Duran’s arraignment is scheduled for April 16, 2015.

Duran is charged, by indictment, with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and wire fraud offenses, punishable by up to twenty years in prison. According to allegations contained in the indictment, Duran participated in a scheme to provide false police reports to individuals operating credit repair businesses. A co-conspirator would provide Duran with the personal identifying information of credit business customers. Duran would create false police reports, using the customers’ personal identifying information.

The police reports would falsely represent that the customers had reported to the Miami-Dade Police Department facts consistent with having been victims of identity theft. Duran would cause the false police reports to become official records of the Miami-Dade Police Department. A member of the conspiracy, associated with the credit businesses, would cause the false police reports created by Duran to be transmitted to credit reporting agencies in order to induce the removal of negative items from the credit histories of the alleged victims identified in the false police reports. Duran created the false police reports in order to promote the success of the credit businesses and in return would receive payment and other things of value from his co-conspirators, including credit repair services.

Brooklyn man suing after NYPD cop allegedly stole $1,300 from him during stop-and-frisk




Monday, September 14, 2015,

A Brooklyn construction worker who claimed a cell phone video showed an NYPD cop snatching a thick wad of cash from him during a stop-and-frisk has filed a federal lawsuit to recoup his money.

Lamard Joye, 36, was interviewed by prosecutors from the Brooklyn district attorney's office and the department's Internal Affairs Bureau's investigators about the incident last September in a Coney Island playground, but no official actions have been taken against Officer William Montemarano, according to the suit filed Sunday in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Joye contends the $1,300 was his salary and he has the pay stub and surveillance photos from a check cashing store to prove it, said his lawyer Robert Marinelli.

FBI: Ten Puerto Rico Police Officers Indicted for Allegedly Running Criminal Organization Out of Police Department


WASHINGTON—Ten Puerto Rico police officers have been indicted for their alleged participation in a criminal organization, run out of the police department, that used their affiliation with law enforcement to make money through robbery, extortion, manipulating court records and selling illegal narcotics, announced United States Attorney Rosa Emilia Rodríguez-Vélez of the District of Puerto Rico. “The criminal action today dismantles a network of officers who, we allege, used their badges and their guns not to uphold the law, but to break it,” said United States Attorney Rodríguez-Vélez. “The indictment portrays a classic criminal shakedown; but the people wielding the guns and stealing the drugs here weren’t mob goodfellas or mafia soldiers – these were police officers violating their oaths to enforce the law, making a mockery of the police’s sacred responsibility to protect the public.” “Corruption is at the root of all evil,” said

Ex-Springer police chief pleads guilty to helping deputy steal from officers posing as drug couriers

Friday, October 16th, 2015 at 5:32pm

SANTA FE – The former police chief of the northern New Mexico town of Springer has pleaded guilty to helping a then-deputy steal $7,500 from men the deputy believed were drug couriers — but who turned out to be undercover state and federal agents investigating the Colfax County deputy’s cooperation with drug transports in return for cash.

Ex-Springer chief Leon Herrera, in his plea agreement Thursday, acknowledged that he pretended to be a federal Drug Enforcem

http://letsrollforums.com//john-decamp-wins-lawsuit-t17623.html?s=ac28a060477f8de68ce10742ffce87b3&

July 30, 2008 -- "Franklin Coverup" author wins court battle:

Former Nebraska Republican state legislator John DeCamp, whose book on pedophilia, Satanic rituals, and top GOP politicians, The Franklin Coverup, which is in its second edition, earned him a lawsuit from former Omaha police chief Robert Wadman, successfully argued his case yesterday before a Utah judge. Wadman, who said DeCamp's book contained "lies," had his libel case against DeCamp thrown out.

Wadman unsuccessfully sought to have DeCamp's book withdrawn from publication. The civil trial against DeCamp was held in Ogden, Utah where Wadman teaches criminal justice at Weber State University. Wadman became Omaha, Nebraska's Police Commissioner in 1982 after having served as Utah's Deputy Commissioner of Public Safety. Wadman was at the center, along with other top Omaha officials and politicians, of the 1980s scandal involving Omaha's Franklin Credit Union and its chief, rising GOP star Lawrence King who was also implicated in a child abduction and prostitution ring with tentacles into the Republican National Committee and the Bush 41 White House. After Omaha, Wadman became chief of police in Wilmington, North Carolina, where, according to DeCamp, he badgered Wilmington police Sgt. Robert Clatty, North Carolina's primary expert law enforcement expert on Satanic ritual abuse. Wadman claimed there was no such thing as Satanic ritual abuse, according to DeCamp.

DeCamp was assisted in his long investigation of the politically-connected pedophilia circuit operating out of Omaha, an implicating the Catholic Church's Boys Town orphanage, by his Vietnam War veteran colleague, former CIA director William Colby. Colby's body was fished out of the Chesapeake Bay in April 1996 in what DeCamp described in his book as "the most questionable of circumstances."
WMR caught up with DeCamp by phone after the Ogden trial.

Wadman is a senior official in the Mormon Church and the fact that DeCamp won in a trial conducted in the very Mormon Ogden is an indication of the victory achieved by those who continue to try to expose America's darkest and most disgusting secret.

Judge sets 71-month sentence for former Secret Service agent who plundered Silk Road
Feds remind Shaun Bridges of former agency's motto: "Worthy of Trust and Confidence."

- Dec 7, 2015 3:45pm EST



SAN FRANCISCO—Former Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges was sentenced Monday to 71 months in prison after he stole money from Silk Road dealers while investigating the site.

Shaun Bridges
"This, to me, is an extremely serious crime consisting of the betrayal of public trust from a public official. From what I can see, it was motivated by greed," US District Judge Richard Seeborg told the court today. "No departure or variance is warranted in this case. I seldom find myself in the position of imposing a high-end sentence, but I find this is warranted in this case."

In addition to his sentence today, the judge ordered Bridges to forfeit the following property: $165,000 from Fidelity brokerage, $306,000 held in trust, and $4,000 from a PNC Bank account.

Bridges pleaded guilty in October 2015 to charges of money laundering and obstruction of justice. He also agreed to pay $500,000 in restitution. That same month, Bridges’ co-investigator, Carl Mark Force of the Drug Enforcement Agency, was sentenced by Judge Seeborg to 6.5 years in prison. Force pled guilty in June 2015.

Bridges' sentencing is merely the latest as the fallout from the Silk Road case continues: last Friday, the FBI announced that Silk Road mastermind Ross Ulbricht's alleged top adviser was arrested in Thailand and is pending extradition to the United States. Ulbricht himself was sentenced to life in prison in May 2015.

“This was not just a pure theft. This was not someone stealing money from the till," said Richard B Evans, an attorney from the Department of Justice's Criminal Division, Public Integrity Section. "This was a federal law enforcement agent that was involved in a multi agency task force who decided to steal bitcoins that he later converted to cash, from the target of the investigation and later blamed on a cooperating witness."
"Worthy of Trust and Confidence"

Agent also gets electronic monitoring after an attempt to adopt a "very odd" name.
Bridges' plot to steal bitcoins from Silk Road and send them to his own overseas account was almost surreal.

After Silk Road admin Curtis Green was arrested in January 2013, he debriefed agents in Baltimore. Bridges took Green’s login credentials and started locking Silk Road drug dealers out of their accounts. Bridges would then loot the accounts, in total grabbing about 20,000 bitcoins.

Eventually, Bridges moved the bitcoins into his Mt Gox account. They were worth more than $300,000 at the time of the theft. His interest in Mt Gox at this point led to a number of actions that would compromise other legal cases for the government.

“The number of cases that Mr. Bridges contaminated—as well as investigations across the country that his conduct led to have to be shut down—is startling," Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) Kathryn Haun said in court today. “There was another investigation into Mt Gox that had to be shut down. I can tell you that Mr. Bridges learned there was a criminal investigation afoot with Mt Gox, and what did he do? He turned around to the AUSA and did a civil seizure warrant to [Mt Gox founder Mark] Karpeles. But two days before he did that, he made sure to get all of his money out. Bridges didn't want a criminal case to proceed because if the government got the records, they would have seen his name."

In addition to his Mt Gox account, Bridges created his own shell company, Quantum International Investments LLC, between March and May of 2013 to act as a final vehicle for the money. At the time, the bitcoins' value rose to about $820,000.

The government’s own 12-page sentencing memorandum begins with a verbal slap in the face to Bridges. It contained an epigraph, citing the motto of the United States Secret Service: "Worthy of Trust and Confidence." Prior to the sentencing, prosecutors asked the judge to impose a sentence of nearly six years:

By his egregious conduct and flagrant abuse of his authority as a sworn law enforcement officer, Shaun Bridges has shown that he is not someone who deserves a sentence at or below the low end of the Guidelines range. Rather, Shaun Bridges is someone who abused the public trust and tarnished the reputation of law enforcement in the process. For those reasons and the others discussed below, the United States seeks a high-end Guidelines sentence of 71 months’ imprisonment – the same sentence recommended by the Probation Department.

The government's memo continues lambasting Bridges:

This Court comes across plenty of defendants who have committed a single—yet significant -3 error in judgment who might deserve a break when it comes time for sentencing. This is not one of those defendants. Like Force, Bridges’ crimes do not represent a "one-off" where he experienced a momentary lapse of judgment. Instead, Bridges committed crimes over the course of many months (if not years) during which he had time to reflect on what he was doing over and over again, and to come forward and admit his crimes. Yet instead of ceasing his misconduct after one incident, he continued with impunity until he was caught. His was an extremely calculated effort, designed to avoid detection for as long as possible, ironically using the very skills (e.g., computer skills) that he learned on the job and at the public’s expense.

Shaun Bridges' stealing spree was the impetus for DPR's first murder-for-hire.
For his part, Bridges’ lawyers Craig Denney and Steven Hale Levin asked the judge to impose a sentence of just three years in their own sentencing memo. The attorneys explained that prior to this "profound tragedy," his client was a man of "exceptional professional accomplishment."

"There are no excuses; we're not making excuses. Mr. Bridges has not made excuses," Hale Levin said in court. "Mr. Bridges knows

Deputy U.S. Marshal Gets 15 Months for Lying to Cops After Fatally Shooting a Man



A former deputy U.S. marshal was sentenced Monday in Los Angeles to 15 months in prison for obstruction of justice – a charge stemming from lies he told to police after he fatally shot a man while off duty, the Justice Department said.

Matthew Itkowitz, 47, who lives in Suffern, N.Y., was found guilty in July of obstruction of justice by a federal jury in July. Authorities charged that Itkowitz shot the man who intervened in a fight between him and his wife. He claimed it was self defense.

A Justice Department press release said the conviction was based on false statements Itkowitz made to Los Angeles police homicide detectives following his fatal shooting of a man in West Hollywood in March of 2008. Itkowitz falsely characterized an altercation that led to the shooting, and his version of events was contradicted by a video made by a security camera in the alley where the shooting took place.

Additionally, Itkowitz was charged with violating the victim’s constitutional rights to be free from the use of unreasonable force by a law enforcement officer.
