#AceNewsReport – Sept.24: Chauvin was convicted last April of third-degree murder, second-degree unintentional murder and second-degree manslaughter for kneeling on George Floyd’s neck for nine minutes during an arrest in May 2020. He was sentenced to 22 ½ years in prison.
#AceDailyNews says that Chauvin has asked for a stay on the appeal process until the state’s Supreme Court reviews an earlier decision to deny him a public defender to represent him after his conviction: Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin appealed his murder conviction ahead of the 90-day deadline on Thursday.
The sentence was higher than the presumptive 12 ½ years but Judge Peter Cahill agreed with prosecutors that there were aggravating factors in Floyd’s death.
Chauvin said he is representing himself in the appeal because he was denied a public defender. He asked for a stay on the appeal until he can get an attorney, according to FOX 9 in Minneapolis.
He said he has no income beyond prison wages and although the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association paid for his legal fees during the trial, that ceased after his conviction, according to the station.
The former officer cited 14 arguments for his appeal, including that the trial wasn’t moved to another county with less pretrial publicity, the jury wasn’t sequestered and some were “clearly biased” and the allowance of the third-degree murder charge, WCCO-TV in Minneapolis reported.
Last week, the Minneapolis Supreme Court reversed the third-degree murder conviction of Mohamed Noor, a former Minneapolis officer who fatally shot Australian woman Justine Ruszczyk Damond. He will be resentenced for manslaughter.
Chauvin also pleaded not guilty last week to violating the civil rights of a teenager in a separate 2017 case that involved a restraint similar to the one used on Floyd. He is also charged with allegedly violating Floyd’s civil rights and has pleaded not guilty.
#AceNewsReport – Sept.23: It is believed that she was making her way through Cator Park towards The Depot bar on Pegler Square, Kidbrooke Village where she planned to meet a friend…..

Sabina never arrived at the pub and is thought to have been murdered as she walked through the park.
Her body was found close to the OneSpace community centre within the park at around 17.30hrs the following day.
A murder investigation was immediately launched, led by Detective Inspector Joe Garrity. He said: “Our investigation is making good progress and specialist officers remain at the crime scene carrying out intensive searches and enquiries.
“We are incredibly grateful for all of those who have so far come forward and spoken to us but we believe there are still others out there who may have information that could help. If you think you saw Sabina or any suspicious behaviour in or around the park on Friday evening please speak to us.
“Sabina’s journey should have taken just over five minutes but she never made it to her destination. We know the community are rightly shocked by this murder – as are we – and we are using every resource available to us to find the individual responsible.”
A post-mortem examination carried out at Greenwich Mortuary on Monday, 20 September was inconclusive.

Detective Inspector Jonny Newell, leading the investigation, said:“All of these assaults took place on a weekend, at a similar time and in very close proximity to both the underground and each other: It is clear that the perpetrator is waiting at or near the tube station with the sole purpose of seeking out women to follow to a secluded area before he carries out his attacks: On each occasion the victims have managed to raise the alarm, causing their attacker to flee the scene. We are incredibly grateful to the two members of the public who came to their assistance: All of the women have understandably been left shaken and we are doing everything we can to stop this happening again. We would urge anyone who lives in the area to think about whether they saw anything suspicious on any of these evenings and to check any CCTV or doorbell footage they may have: Sexual assaults of this nature remain very rare but we will of course be carrying out extra patrols in the area over the next few weeks. Tackling violence against women and girls is one of the Met’s top priorities and we are determined to stop this man from causing further harm.”

“We are in total shock and want justice for our beautiful son Mero. His life was taken too soon at the age of 16, turning 17 on the 20 September.

“He will be sadly missed, lots of love son, we will love you forever – mum, dad, Remi and not forgetting your nephew Caerus. We will make sure he will never forget you.
“Each and everyone in the family right now wishes you were still here. Sleep tight baby boy till we meet again. We love you forever.”
Detective Chief Inspector Liz Hopkinson, from GMP’s Major Incident Team, said: “Our thoughts are with Rhamero’s family and we have specialist officers supporting his mum, dad and brother through this extremely distressing time: A number of detectives have been working to piece together the sequence of events and find those responsible. At this stage, we understand that Rhamero was attacked by two males and we’re working hard to identify them but would appeal for anyone with information to come forward: Since the attack, we’ve already followed up a number of lines of enquiry and we’re carefully examining CCTV and forensics: There will be people who know who was involved in this attack on a young teenager and we would ask them to come forward – even the smallest bit of information may prove vital in our investigation: A family have lost their young son and they are deserving of answers: Do the right thing and speak with our officers by reporting any information online or by using our LiveChat service at www.gmp.police.U.K.

#AceNewsReport – Sept.05: Anthony Pitts, 39, sexually abused two victims repeatedly over a 10-year period. On 21 June 2021, he was convicted of 13 sexual offences and sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment at Oxford Crown Court…
#AceDailyNewsreports child sex offender’s sentence increased from 12-18yrs in prison following decade of abuse: Anthony Pitts has had his sentence increased following an intervention by the Solicitor General, The Rt Hon Lucy Frazer QC MP.
Following the Court’s decision, the Solicitor General referred Pitts’ case to the Court of Appeal under the Unduly Lenient Sentence (ULS) scheme. On 2 September 2021, the Court found his sentence to be unduly lenient and increased it to 18 years’ imprisonment, followed by 1 year on licence.
After the hearing at the Court of Appeal the Solicitor General, Rt Hon Lucy Frazer QC MP, said:
I am pleased that the Court of Appeal saw fit to increase Pitts’ sentence today. His crimes were horrific and long running. His victims have suffered because of his actions, and he has shown them a complete lack of remorse or empathy. I hope today’s decision will bring them some comfort.
#AceNewsReport – Sept.02: Following an appeal by 57 year old Francis Lanigan against his conviction and sentencing for the murder of John Knocker which occurred on 31 May 1998, today, Tuesday 31st August 2021, at the Royal Courts of Justice, Belfast the Court of Appeal upheld his original conviction and sentencing. He was previously sentenced to a minimum term of 20 years imprisonment….
#AceDailyNews UPDATE: On the sentencing for the murder of John Knocker in 1998 of Francis Lanigan against his original conviction which was upheld in Royal Court of Justices …..
Detective Superintendent Gareth Talbot said: “John’s family and friends were able to observe today’s proceedings remotely and I would like to say that my thoughts and those of the investigation team are very much with them at what has been an extremely difficult time: John was murdered following an altercation with Francis Lanigan in the carpark of Glengannon hotel in Dungannon. Following this altercation, as John was fleeing along Eglish Road, Francis Lanigan raised a gun and callously shot him from a distance. He fell to the ground wounded and as he lay helpless and vulnerable on the ground Francis Lanigan walked up to him and coldly shot him a second time in the head, killing him.”
Detective Superintendent Talbot continues: “John was a young man of 22 when his life was ruthlessly cut short. He had a young son and was awaiting the birth of his second child: John and his son were denied the joy of building memories together. He never got to see the birth of his daughter and she will never have the joy of her father walking her down the aisle. Francis Lanigan’s actions have taken so much from his children and his family: Although this callous and brutal murder occurred 23 years ago and Francis Lanigan fled the jurisdiction to the Republic of Ireland, officers from the Police Service of Northern Ireland worked tirelessly to bring him back to Northern Ireland to face justice for what he had done: He believed he could evade justice – he was wrong.”
Detective Superintendent Talbot concludes: “I would like to place on record my thanks to the family and friends of John Knocker who have supported the police investigation down through the years: I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the investigation team for their efforts and painstaking work which enabled us to bring Francis Lanigan before the courts: Today’s judgment won’t bring John back to his family, however I hope it will bring some small degree of comfort to them knowing that Francis Lanigan is in prison, paying the price for taking the life of their father, son and brother.”
Statement issued on behalf of Mary Knocker, mother of John Knocker: Today, Francis Lanigan’s conviction and sentence for the brutal and senseless murder of my beloved son, John was upheld by the Court of Appeal. However, no matter how many years he has to serve in prison it will not make up for the life and memories that both John and all of his family have missed out on and will continue to miss: John was my first born and my only son. He was the light of my life. His murder rocked our family to the core and left a huge void in our lives which will remain for as long as we all live: His younger sisters and I have had to live with the heartache of never being able to feel his arms hugging us or hearing his laughter. Family gatherings and holidays have never been the same without him. All of our memories are missing one vital person – John.
John had a young son whom he adored: He was looking forward to the birth of his second child. He had his whole life ahead of him. However, Francis Lanigan robbed both him and his children of the chance to make beautiful and life changing memories: John never got to meet his daughter as his life was cruelly cut short before she was born. He never had the chance to look into her eyes or hear her voice and she never got to meet her father: We have all been denied so much by the cruel and senseless act of one person: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the police, our legal team and not least of all my family and friends, whose help and support we all truly appreciate.
