20180209 Miller Costello listens to opening statements during a preliminary hearing on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018, in 2nd District Court in Ogden. Costello and Brenda Emile have been charged with aggravated murder in the death of their 3-year-old daughter.

But if lawyers for Brenda Emile and Miller Costello don’t succeed in doing so, they say they want a jury to know that a state execution is more expensive than a life sentence in prison.

“It occurred to me that that there’s a real misunderstanding out there about the cost of the death penalty, that frankly, it’s a lot cheaper to keep someone alive than it is to kill them under this system,” defense attorney Randall Marshall said Friday in a

Glum U.S. House Democrats lament 2020 election losses

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some U.S. House of Representatives Democrats on Thursday blamed Tuesday’s election losses on colleagues who embraced defunding police departments and “socialist” policies, according to sources familiar with a phone call they held.

Democrats went into this week’s congressional elections, in which all 435 House seats were up for grabs, with high hopes of significantly building on their majority control of the chamber.

Instead, in a jolt that has cast a pall over the party even as Democrat Joe Biden was close to toppling President Donald Trump, the party suffered the net loss of about a half-dozen House seats.

Democrats are expected to nonetheless hold onto their majority in the new Congress that convenes on Jan. 3.

According to a source who was on Wednesday’s phone call, Democratic Representative Abigail Spanberger criticized some of her fellow Democrats for support of defunding police departments after a string of deaths

Illinois discusses various avenues of police reform

State legislators are considering eliminating or limiting aspects of qualified immunity for law enforcement.

Qualified immunity isn’t an explicit federal statute or law but a legal doctrine established in its current form by the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1982 case Harlow v. Fitzgerald which grants government officials immunity from civil suits in the course of their duties. It is most often used in cases of alleged police misconduct or brutality.

At a joint hearing of the Senate Criminal Law and Public Safety committees on Thursday, lawmakers heard testimony from legal experts, law enforcement and municipal officials on the impact of qualified immunity and its potential removal. The committee also discussed officer liability and amendments to the Uniform Peace Officers’ Disciplinary Act.

State Sen. Robert Peters, D-Chicago, co-chaired the hearing.

“Qualified immunity is often used as justification for excessive force and other forms of police misconduct,” Peters said in

A new deposition sheds light on the still-murky relationship between Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and real estate investor Nate Paul, a friend and political donor at the center of new criminal allegations against the state’s top lawyer.

Little is known about how the two met and how closely they know each other. But eight senior aides told law enforcement they believed that actions Paxton took at the agency, on Paul’s behalf, violated the law.

Paxton has called the whistleblowers “rogue employees” and denied their allegations as “false.”

In a transcript of the deposition obtained by The Texas Tribune on Wednesday, Paul said that he could not recall exactly when he met Paxton but that it was “several years ago.”

Paul said he considers “the relationship,
