Michelle Troconis’ Lawyer Seeks To Move Jennifer Dulos Court Case

STAMFORD, CT — The attorney representing Michelle Troconis, one of the suspects accused of conspiracy in the disappearance of Jennifer Farber Dulos, argued in a court hearing Tuesday to have the case moved, but a prosecutor countered that they missed their chance.

Attorney Jon Schoenhorn said during the court hearing, which was held virtually as a concession to the coronavirus pandemic, that the conspiracy to commit murder charge his client faces “is alleged to have occurred” in Hartford County, not Fairfield County.

New Canaan resident Jennifer Dulos disappeared from her home on May 24, 2019, and is presumed to be dead. Her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, was accused of kidnapping and murdering her, but he took his own life in January before he could stand trial. Troconis, his former girlfriend, and Kent Mawhinney, an attorney and former friend of Fotis Dulos, face similar charges, and both have pleaded not guilty.

Law360 (November 24, 2020, 6:39 PM EST) — New York state’s judicial ethics watchdog will review a Buffalo judge’s decision to preside over and rule in favor of an attorney who owed him thousands of dollars, expanding an existing inquiry sparked by his role in a street brawl this summer.

The New York Office of Court Administration said Monday it had referred state Supreme Court Justice Mark Grisanti’s handling of the case in 2018 to the state’s Commission on Judicial Conduct after Law360 reported that Justice Grisanti failed to disclose the financial relationship. The independent agency has previously censured or removed judges for similar conduct, though those cases involved repeated ethics violations.

Court records show that Justice Grisanti granted a judgment of about $18,500 in favor of a private girls school represented by

Anaqua Springs family attorney sent ‘menacing’ emails to sheriff regarding case

SAN ANTONIO – Sheriff Javier Salazar is responding after a family attorney in a high-profile case allegedly sent “menacing” emails, threatening Salazar’s family.

The email is between the sheriff and attorney Joe Hoelscher, a lawyer for the Nichol Olsen’s daughter London Sophia Bribiescas, 10. She and her sister, Alexa Denice Montez, 16, were both were killed in an apparent murder-suicide in Jan. 2019.

We have received Sheriff Salazar’s email to family lawyer Joe Hoelscher, calling Hoelscher’s two emails a threat.

“I was responding to what I consider a threat from Mr. Hoelscher to come to my home, my personal home on Thanksgiving Day, where I’ll be with my family,” Salazar told us Monday evening. “I consider that to be inappropriate in nature, so I sent him back a response, letting him know that I felt

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma pleads guilty in criminal case | National News

“Until we do that and we stop accusing brick and mortar and not individuals, nothing will change,” said Munger, who lives in Wayne, Pennsylvania.

The attorneys general for about half the states opposed the federal settlement, as well as the company’s proposed settlement in bankruptcy court. In the bankruptcy case, Purdue has proposed transforming into a public benefit corporation with its proceeds going to help address the opioid crisis.

The attorneys general and some activists are upset that despite the Sacklers giving up control of the company, the family remains wealthy and its members will not face prison or other individual penalties.

The activists say there’s no difference between the actions of the company and its owners, who also controlled Purdue’s board until the past few years.

Last week, as part of a motion to get access to more family documents, the attorneys general who oppose the deals made a

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber seek second delay in replying to prosecutors’ bid for SCOTUS review of case after death penalty vacated

“This is the second extension respondent [Tsarnaev] has sought,” Anders wrote. “Petitioner [the government] opposes this request. To accommodate the government’s stated interest in avoiding further delay, respondent will not seek any subsequent extension if this one is granted.”

In requesting the delay, Anders cited her team’s current caseload as well as the complexity of the Tsarnaev matter, which has generated more than 51,000 pages of briefs and appendices.

“Preparing an opposition to certiorari in a capital case, particularly one with such an extensive record, is a substantial endeavor,” Anders wrote. “Indeed, when the government is in the position of opposing certiorari in capital cases on direct review, it often seeks multiple extensions. That practice underscores the care and attention required to prepare a brief in opposition in a capital case.”

But Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey B. Wall, writing for the DOJ, said in his own letter filed with the

Troconis’ attorney requests access to prosecutors’ evidence at Dulos case hearing

STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Michelle Troconis, suspect in the case of missing New Canaan mom, Jennifer Farber Dulos, faced a judge Tuesday morning in a virtual court appearance.

She is facing conspiracy to commit murder and obstruction of justice charges in the case.

We are inching towards the trial in this case. Troconis remains free on bond, but she had her video off during most of the hearing.

During the hearing, her attorney argued for access to evidence including surveillance video of a person on a bike that state police cited in their arrest warrants against Fotis Dulos and Troconis. Attorney Jon Schoenhorn also asked for photos of what he said was a strip search done on Troconis, saying he is concerned those photos were never turned over by police. Prosecutors agreed.

Next, Schoenhorn argued for document access to a custody evaluation done by a psychologist of Jenner Farber Dulos

Boone County Sheriff investigators assisted with the investigation of what is believed to be the first bestiality law conviction since state lawmakers outlawed sex with animals in 2019, according to a Kentucky Attorney General release.

The 97-0 vote passing of Senate Bill 67 in March 2019 made Kentucky one of the last states to make bestiality illegal, according to a Courier-Journal article.

Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced the convictions Tuesday in the release. 

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Maysville Police Department and Assistant Attorney General Rewa Zakharia of the AG’s office of special prosecutions, according to the release.

Bracken County resident Nolene Renee Horn, 44, and Mason County resident Christopher S. Jones, 50, have each pleaded guilty in Mason County

Virginia woman sentenced to 14 years in elder abuse case

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A Virginia woman has been sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to abusing an 87-year-old woman suffering from dementia.

Jacguilin Gilbert, 56, of Henrico County, pleaded guilty in May to malicious wounding and elder abuse. In exchange for her plea, the prosecutor dropped two other charges.

The Richmond-Times Dispatch reports that a nurse reported the abuse last year after she visited Gilbert’s home, where she was the caregiver for the victim and another woman. The nurse said the victim had a swollen shut black eye, a lump on her head and an abrasion on her arm, according to a police report.

The victim, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, testified at a preliminary hearing that Gilbert had been the one to hurt her.

Last week, Judge Lee Harris Jr. sentenced Gilbert to 30 years with 16 years suspended.

Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney B.J. McGee asked
