Miscellaneous Criminal Cases

Post  Guest on Thu Sep 24, 2015 2:57 pm

It's absolutely horrendous what has been done to Mr Tomlinson who was killed and his body thrown into a wheelie bin, and the bin was set on fire trying to conceal the body.  Kearney was given a life sentence, 6 years, FFS, it should have been 60 years -

Nathan Kearney, 34, was this week given a life sentence after he was found guilty of the manslaughter of Bill Tomlinson, reports the Loughborough Echo .

He had already pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice by destroying or concealing evidence.

Kearney, of Braunstone, will serve a minimum of six years and nine months before being eligible for parole.


I'm lost for words.   Evil or Very Mad

Although it does show what lengths people will go to to avoid being caught after they've done a crime, not that I'm alluding to anything I would add.

Absolutely totally shocking, they knew what they were doing, someone with only a few brain cells between their ears would know that slitting someone's throat is killing someone and they're not likely to survive the ordeal.

I looked up the procedure to write to the "establishment" to protest against such a low sentence (6 years) but apparently "manslaughter" doesn't seem to come under their remit of having the sentence overturned, it has to be classed as murder.

So it looks, to me, like many "murders" are now being classed as "manslaughter" as there are not enough prison places to house people for a proper murder conviction for say 20 or 30 years.

How can you say that slitting someone's throat and setting the body alight is "manslaughter" not "murder".

The comments are interesting to read, not many sympathising with her, I liked this one in particular -

What a despicable excuse for a Mother!

and

Well at the time this story was originally published, the less gullible amongst us all knew she had fabricated the whole thing! What did she think was going to happen; perhaps a compensation claim for the "excruciating pain she suffered?!?!

Maybe she wouldn't of tried this stunt if the Mccann farce didn't see the light of day.

Shannon Matthews, I would wager, wouldn't of done either.

I'm surprised about the charge of perverting the course of public justice - wouldn't wasting police time have been more relevant?

To be fair (as I always try to be!) she sounds as if she may have mental health issues.

Slightly off topic: I don't know if anyone got this today, but there has been a new development in identifying [criminal] people. After the fingerprints and then DNA it is now the "cloud" of bacteria you carry and lose in the air. Although we all carry more or less the same types of bacteria, once with us they get an individual signature. Like fingerprints and DNA it may take years before they're accepted as proof in criminal court cases, at least they might/will support investigators and get them in the right direction ...

Perverting the course of Justice potentially has a much higher sentence than Wasting Police time. If it's applied or not is another matter

According to MailOnline, ''She ( the journalist ) had also spoken in June of her fears that she may be targeted by the Islamic State while working in the Iraqi city of Erbil, reportedly as acting Iraq director for the Institute for War and Peace Reporting

Seems strange to me that a woman who supposedly feared for her life should take her own. Presumably anyone who fears for their lives places value on it ...........so yes, ................odd.

No, not heard of it either. Seems she was the family scapegoat.

According to this they got 30 years prison sentence.

Translation :-

"Thirty years in prison for the mother and the father-Typhaine
- January 25, 2013 at 11:59 (updated 6:44 p.m.)
Luc Fremiot, General Counsel, stressed the will to kill the little Typhaine in his indictment.

The Advocate General had stressed in his address on the willingness of the couple to kill the little 5 year old girl in 2009.

Thirty years in prison for the mother and the father-Typhaine
On behalf of "children martyred", the Advocate General had requested Frémiot Luc Friday before the assizes North 30 years imprisonment against the mother and stepfather Typhaine, tried for the murder in 2009 of 5 year old girl, they had camouflaged disappearance. Anne-Sophie Reaper and Nicolas Willot, aged respectively 26 and 27, who admitted to repeated violence against the child became their scapegoat but deny having wanted to kill her, incur life imprisonment at the end of trial began Monday. The court decided to comdamner them to 30 years' imprisonment, following the submissions of the prosecutor.

At the resumption of the hearing on Friday shortly after 9:00, the members of the family of the father of Typhaine, civil parties in the trial, tight in the front row had all put on a white T-shirt bearing the image of the little girl . "This little girl with blond hair, his laughing face (...), they looked everywhere, from morning to night. As now, in this criminal court, it seeks, but there is silence. It has energetically sought because a child disappears, that's life that stops ", hammered the Advocate General at the beginning of his indictment two hours.

Become "invisible children" since his mother had taken from her father's family six months before his death, Typhaine "belongs to us all", said Luc Frémiot. The "children martyred" it "are all our children, we have more rights over them you Anne-Sophie Reaper", he protested, looking at the accused, who kept his eyes lowered throughout the indictment.

Referring to the many abuse for weeks the girl become a "puppet dislocated", the Advocate General said be "face to real torture", from a couple whose will to kill does no doubt, he said. "Yes, the act is monstrous, but the monster you have to judge also hides a woman's heart", mother of three children at the age of 22 who had a violent childhood pleaded his side's lawyer Anne-Sophie Reaper, Ms. Blandine Lejeune, calling the jury to deliver a "strong but just punishment".

"What I did was unforgivable, that's why I do not apologize to the families. Typhaine did not deserve this ", said the accused, feverish in the dock before the court withdraws to deliberate in mid-afternoon. The lawyer of his former partner, Mr. Emmanuel Riglaire, had asked the court in the late morning to "individualize" the cases of two accused and ask this question: is his client "guilty of murder" or " guilty of intentional violence causing death "?

The jury will have to answer this last qualification, said the president of the court. For the Advocate General, Anne-Sophie and Nicolas Willot Reaper are "inextricably linked" after signing "a cursed pact for the suffering of this kid, the scapegoat that must get rid".

"Who do we want to believe that a 5 year old child, when one denies eating when one strikes, to whom we want to believe" that the death was "not inevitable? ', S' Advocate General was moved. After being struck in the evening of 10 or June 11, 2009, he recalled, Typhaine had been placed "under the cold shower", and the couple had returned "watching television".

"And ten minutes, fifteen minutes after hearing a rattle, you stay ten minutes watching TV (...) and there is no will homicide?", Accused the Advocate General. "You do not think that in this context, it rushes to the phone to call for help (...)? The willingness homicide, it is there. We see her before we see her for, we see later, we see all the time ", he concluded."

The mother left her one year old daughter with a group of babysitters ALL UNDER 9 YEARS OLD.  Her daughter was battered to death. The mother went to a nightclub at 11.30 pm. She did not check her child when she returned so only discovered the dead toddler in the morning. An eight year old babysitter is in custody. the mother is to be charged with manslaughter.

This mother is not a middle class professional.

the McCanns left their two year old twins with an almost four year old babysitter. The babysitter vanished and has not been found. No charges have been made against the parents.

We must at least be grateful that she did not try to cover up what had happened.

The more I think about this one, the worse it gets. Was the mother of the 8-year-old aware that he was spending the night at a neighbour's house to mind other children? How could she have allowed this?

P.S. Apparently his mother was out clubbing too!

One for those with long memories

Post  Freedom on Fri Nov 13, 2015 12:50 pm

Who - apart from me - remembers the very sad case of Caroline Desramault, a baby whose French father was given custody of her (for no known good reason) in 1971?

The decision was later reversed but the father did a runner with the child. It took until 1973 for Linda, her mother, to get her back.

Here is a brief summary that I've found.

In the news 1960s/70s

For many weeks in that decade there was an heart-rending newspaper and other media story about a British woman whose vengeful and estranged French husband had, by hoodwinking the authorities, spirited abroad their infant son. He took delight in declaring that she would never see the boy again until at least he reached adulthood and there was nothing she, or the British authorities, could do about it. I have often wondered what subsequently happened.; With the passage of time I cannot remember the names of the couple involved, but I have an idea it was something like Desremoix and her name, maybe, Linda. Can anyone recall this case that





Caroline Desramault was the child's name. Her father, Rene Desramault repeatedly ignored court orders, including orders from the highest appeal court in France, to return her to her mother, Linda. In August 1972, a few days before Caroline was to be returned to her mother, Rene Desramault fled the French town of Lens, where he was living, and disappeared. He was eventually tracked down to Switzerland in September 1972, and the Swiss authorities placed Caroline in a children's home where she languished until a final and definitive ruling from the highest French court confirmed that she must be returned to her mother. Both parents took turns visiting Caroline in this children's home until March 1973, when the French ruling was recognised by the Swiss authorities. As luck would have it, Linda was actually at the children's home visiting Caroline when the court order came through. She immediately took her daughter to the airport and flew back to England before Rene could get to the children's home and try to stop her from leaving with Caroline. Linda subsequently divorced Rene - and some years later remarried - this time very happily. Rene, a bitter and vindictive man who used a helpless little girl as a pawn to punish her mother for daring to leave him, died some years later.

Murder of Jason Corbett

This case has become well-known in Ireland - what was thought at first to be self-defence is now looking different.

George Osborne`s brother

"George Osborne's brother admits having sex with vulnerable patient in his care
Psychiatrist Dr Adam Osborne will appear before the General Medical Council after engaging in an “inappropriate” emotional and sexual relationship


Dr Adam Osborne
Dr Adam Osborne, pictured arriving at a previous GMC hearing, is currently suspended by the council.
Monday 8 February 2016 18.38 GMT Last modified on Monday 8 February 2016 19.43 GMT

George Osborne’s brother is back before the General Medical Council after he admitted having sex with a vulnerable patient who had been under his care, a disciplinary panel has heard.

Dr Adam Osborne, who is currently suspended by the GMC, admitted that he had engaged in an “inappropriate” emotional and sexual relationship with the woman, despite being her private psychiatrist. The woman, referred to as Patient A, had been under Osborne’s care between February 2011 and late 2014 and had a history of mental ill health.

It is not the first time the younger brother of the chancellor has been in the spotlight for medical failings. In 2010 he was suspended from practising medicine for six months after writing fraudulent prescriptions for a girlfriend, a family member and an escort girl while a psychiatry trainee at Wythenshawe hospital in Manchester.

The GMC found that Osborne had behaved dishonestly after attempting to obtain antipsychotic medication for a cocaine-addicted woman he had been seeing while his partner was away. The tribunal said the misconduct, which related to incidents between June 2006 and May 2008, impaired his fitness to practise.

Osborne, who qualified as a doctor in 2004, did not attend the latest Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service hearing in Manchester. The tribunal will make a decision on the allegation that his fitness to practise is impaired by reason of misconduct in his absence when it is formally opened on Tuesday.

Osborne admits that he knew, or ought reasonably to have known, that the woman was a vulnerable patient because of her history of mental ill health. He further admits that between 14 February 2015 and 24 February 2015 he sent inappropriate emails to Patient A, which referred to requests that she withdraw her complaint to the GMC against him, made threats towards her and the consequences for her family if she did not withdraw her complaint and an accusation that she had seduced him.

The hearing is due to last 10 days."

Portugal - Mother “kills children out of vengeance”

Post  candyfloss on Thu Feb 18, 2016 1:46 pm

Posted by portugalpress on February 18, 2016


Mother “kills children out of vengeance”


                      A three-year-old girl is still missing after her mother took her and her younger sister to their deaths in the freezing waters of the Tejo near Caxias (Oeiras) on the outskirts of Lisbon last Monday.

 The tragic story of what led Sónia Lima to kill her own children has been documented by the nation’s media as a case where the authorities failed to act in time, but there are still doubts as to the validity of all the claims. Indeed, this morning, the nation’s most-read paper claims Lima “killed her daughters out of vengeance” and that she has been trying to manipulate Justice “imputing her (estranged) husband Nelson Ramos not only of aggressions but of the sexual abuse of her children”. These latter claims were not backed up by medical examinations, adds Correio da Manhã.

 Both CM and Diário de Notícias attest to the fact that Lima took her children to hospital in November, alleging sexual abuse by the partner from whom she had only recently separated. Unable to find any evidence of sexual abuse and “in the face of the mother’s insistence of these facts”, the doctors advised Lima to go to the authorities - which she did.

While DN documents a number of instances where both police and APAV (the association for victim support) judged Lima and her daughters to be facing “elevated risk” from Ramos, CM suggests PJ investigators and Public Ministry prosecutors now believe that she “acted out of vengeance against her children’s father, who threatened to take the children from her”.

Ramos in the meantime has categorically denied all his former partner’s allegations. According to CM this morning, the Cascais judge hearing the facts far has “accepted” the theory that Lima “never intended to commit suicide, but just kill her children”, and for this reason she is now facing charges of qualified homicide which carry a maximum prison term of 25 years.

The argument that Lima was suffering from depression “which would mean reduced imputability” was “not considered”, says CM. Thus, the 37-year-old has been remanded in custody to Tires jail as searches continue for the body of her eldest daughter Samira.

As many as 300 police and search and rescue personnel are thought to be involved in the operation which has “already covered a vast area”, says ports commander Malaquias Domingues - adding that it is unlikely the child’s body has been caught in rocks near the beach where the children went in (click here). Meantime, the body of Samira’s younger sister, 19-month-old Viviane, is due to be released from the institute of legal medicine for burial.
