(COVENTRY, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Two dangerous men convicted today Mon.09: November for killing and dismembering a Dudley woman in 2019 and also found guilty of 4-rapes, attempted rape and threaten to kill #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.09: Nathan Maynard-Ellis, 30, and his boyfriend, 25-year-old David Leesley, were found guilty at Coventry Crown Court for killing and dismembering Julia Rawson: Maynard-Ellis was also found guilty of four rapes, an attempted rape and a threat to kill:

By chance on 11 May 2019, Julia Rawson met Nathan Maynard-Ellis when she took the wrong bus home and ended up at the Bottle and Cork Public House, New Mill Street in Dudley. They chatted and she went back to his flat in Mission Drive, Tipton, by taxi. At the apartment, Maynard-Ellis and Leesley killed Miss Rawson, dismembered her body and disposed of her remains in black bags in land adjacent to a nearby canal: Later, Julia Rawson was reported missing, police discovered her body parts five weeks later. Police traced her last steps to the defendants’ flat. Forensic evidence placed Julia Rawson at the flat, and both men were arrested for her murder.

During the police investigation, an ex-partner of Maynard-Ellis came forward to reveal that she had been raped and sexually assaulted by him many years ago; and he threatened to kill her: The account she gave provided striking similarities in details discovered by the police surrounding the murder, dismemberment and disposal of Julia Rawson, which included a link in time between the date of the break-up of their relationship and her death:

James L Francis of the CPS said: “The details that led to Julia Rawson’s death remain unknown, but the facts support the Crown’s case that Nathan Maynard-Ellis and David Leesley are extremely dangerous individuals and were responsible for her death. They lied many times throughout the investigation to avoid detection for the allegation of murder, but we were able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that both Maynard-Ellis and Leesley murdered Julia Rawson, their conviction will protect others from future harm. I want to pay tribute to the surviving victim in this case for the strength and determination that she has shown to ensure justice was served for her and Julia Rawson. Thanks to her bravery, others will now be protected from these dangerous men.”

CASE NOTES:

While only the defendants know precisely what transpired in that flat on 12 May 2019, forensic evidence supported the prosecution case that Julia Rawson had been murdered in that flat and both men had tried to hide the crime: At the onset of the investigation, police discovered that the defendants’ had removed furniture and replaced sections of the living room carpet. However, washed traces of Julia Rawson’s blood were found on the floor under the new underlay and carpet. When the sofa in the living room was examined, they found staining along one edge of a cushion with blood that had come from Julia Rawson: The defendants also disposed of their clothing in a garden incinerator at the home of Maynard-Ellis’ mother. Blood from Julia Rawson was found on a pair of burnt grey fleece shorts:

The CPS was able to prove the case as a result of the presence of multiple strands of evidence that included details provided by a complaint made by an ex-partner of Maynard-Ellis, CCTV footage showing the movements of the victim and Maynard-Ellis, scientific evidence proving the presence of the victim’s blood on floorboards inside the defendants’ flat, expert evidence detailing the examination of the dismembered remains of the victim and admissions made by Maynard-Ellis and lies told by Leesley:

(WARWICK, U.K) Court Report: A man who ‘ impriosned & raped a woman ‘ over a person of 32-hours has been convicted of 10-counts of ‘ rape & false imprisonment ‘ on Friday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.09: On 6 November 2020 at Warwick Crown Court, a jury found that Chukwudi Bright Olowo, 30,  who had previously been found by a judge to be mentally ‘unfit to plead’, had committed the acts, in a prosecution relating to 10 counts of rape and one count of false imprisonment: The victim attended Olowo’s home but soon realised she did not wish to remain in the property: She attempted to leave but was falsely imprisoned by Olowo who subjected her to an ordeal lasting thirty-two hours during which he raped her numerous times:

The victim had been reported missing by her family as her absence was out of character: While officers were trying to locate the victim, they spoke to a takeaway delivery driver who told officers he had delivered food to Olowo’s address several days earlier and had the door slammed in his face by the occupant after delivering the food and before being paid: Officers accompanied the driver to the door of the address in question and when the door was opened, the victim took her chance to flee and told officers what happened. Olowo was found hiding in a cupboard by police: Olowo denied rape and false imprisonment but was found to have committed the acts. He will be sentenced on 20 November 2020:

Tamina Greaves of the CPS said: “I would like to express my gratitude to the victim for her incredible bravery and courage in helping us bring the defendant to justice. She was the victim of what can only be described as a harrowing experience, which has unsurprisingly had a devastating impact on her life. The defendant is undoubtedly an extremely dangerous individual who poses a serious risk to women, and this finding is the first step in ensuring justice for the victim.”

(TEESSIDE, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Two men who were involved in an altercation with a Yarm man in the hours before his death have been sentenced today #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Edwin Taha, 20, of Lavender Way, Norton and Ali Abdulmajieed, 19, of Corvus Drive, Stockton were each sentenced for a charge of affray in relation to an attack on Luke Jobson, whose body was discovered in the river Tees in January of last year. All of the men had been out in Yarm High Street in the early hours of Saturday 26 January when an argument broke out between Luke and another man, who was an associate of Taha and Abdulmajieed:

After a failed pursuit of Luke on foot the pair then returned to a vehicle, which was driven by Abdulmajieed, leading to a further altercation at Yarm School during which Taha sprayed a substance in Luke’s eyes from a bottle he was carrying. The men then drove away leaving Luke Jobson in the grounds of Yarm School, where he was captured on CCTV entering a boathouse some time later. Tragically, Luke’s body was recovered from the River Tees near to the school around 48 hours after these events: Taha was also sentenced for five further charges in relation to the possession and supply of cocaine, MDMA and ketamine.

Chris Atkinson of CPS North East said: “While Taha and Abdulmajieed have been sentenced today for these charges our thoughts remain with the family of Luke Jobson, for whom this will no doubt be a particularly difficult time: ” While we have proved beyond reasonable doubt that both men were involved in an affray with Luke prior to his death, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest any causal link between their actions and the tragic events which occurred after their attack took place.”

(LIVERPOOL) Crown Court Report: A man who was acting as an armourer to criminals and storing the weapons and materials to make explosives at the home of a vulnerable man he claimed to be caring for has been jailed for eight years on Monday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.20: The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said that Michael Green, 31, of Micawber Street in the Toxteth area of Liverpool, had a detailed knowledge of the world of firearms and munitions: He had acquired firearms, ammunition, and items that could be used to construct explosives: Police raids at his home and the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area uncovered rifles, ammunition and materials to make explosives: The raids also revealed equipment that could be used to adapt or engineer weapons, together with books, manuals and diagrams of the same nature: The CPS said that Green was an armourer who had weapons, ammunitions and the  wherewithal to make explosives so that he could provide them to whoever wanted them to commit serious crimes: He pleaded guilty three charges of possession of a firearm and ammunition without a certificate and seven charges of being in possession of an explosive substance: Today (19 October 2020) at Liverpool Crown Court, Michael Green was sentenced to eight years in jail.

On 6 July 2018: Police executed a raid on the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area. They found a whole host of weapons in a wardrobe in a locked room at the flat: Green’s fingerprints were on many of the weapons. Police went on to raid Green’s home in Micawber Close and found equipment and materials to make explosives: The man, who was then 52, told police that the room had been locked and used by Michael Green, who was acting as his carer: Green also used the details of the man to make purchases from Amazon and Paypal of items connected to weapons. One of the giveaways that it was Green buying the items was that he also used the same details to buy personalised items for members of his family.

On 15 July 2018: Green attended at St Anne Street Police Station and was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm without a certificate and remained silent. He went on to deny the items were his and blamed the vulnerable male but the overwhelming forensic evidence led to him eventually accepting his guilt:

Senior Crown prosecutor Rachael Barber, of CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: “Michael Green had accumulated a wide range of potentially lethal weapons, ammunition and explosives in order to supply the criminal underworld: “He exploited the vulnerability of the man he was supposed to be caring for by storing these dangerous items in his home: ” Guns, ammunition and explosives bring death, destruction and chaos to our communities. They are the tools of the criminals who also bring drugs and other forms of criminality to our streets: ” Green eventually pleaded guilty, but not immediately. He has now been sentenced for his part in the dangerous and deadly world of organised crime.”

‘ SECRET TERROR TRIAL EROL INCEDAL GUILTY OF POSSESSING BOMB-MAKING DOCUMENT ‘

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN – Nov.17 – Law student Erol Incedal was found guilty in a terror trial partially held in secret of possessing a bomb-making document, it can now be reported.

‘Erol Incedal secret terror trial guilty verdict revealed ‘

Judge Mr Justice Nicol lifted an order he had made that prevented the media reporting last Tuesday’s guilty verdict against 26-year-old Incedal.

The Old Bailey jury failed to reach a verdict on a charge of committing acts preparatory to terrorism.

Incedal, from London, provisionally faces a retrial on this charge.

He had denied all allegations against him.

The jury was discharged after it failed to reach a verdict on the second charge, which involved preparing an act of terrorism with others abroad.

His co-defendant, Mounir Rarmoul-Bouhadjar, 26, pleaded guilty before the trial began to possession of a bomb-making document identical to the one Incedal had.

During the trial, the Old Bailey had heard claims Incedal was considering an indiscriminate Mumbai-style terror attack and had an address for a property owned by ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie.

Travis, 69, who was on trial under his real name, David Griffin, was being retried on one count of indecent assault and one of sexual assault after a jury was unable to reach verdicts on the charges at a trial in February.

Travis was found guilty on an additional count of indecent assault that was not heard at the original trial. That was alleged to have occurred in January 1995 and involved a young woman working on the BBC’s Mrs Merton Show.

The DJ was found not guilty of the other indecent assault charge and the jury was unable to reach a verdict on the sexual assault charge.

The jury retired to consider their verdicts on 18 September after hearing evidence that began on 1 September. The judge had indicated that he would accept a majority verdict of 10 to two.

Giving his own evidence, the former Top of the Pops presenter denied all charges, telling jurors the women had been lying. He also called on several other defence witnesses to testify to his good character.

` ACLU ' says that the US has 875,000 on the `Terrorist Watch-List 'though they are not adhering to the Principle of Innocent until proven Guilty '

#AceWorldNews The US had 875,000 people in its terrorist watch-list system as of December 2012. Those secretly blacklisted have no real path to challenge their status, states a new report, thus indefinitely restricting those listed from travel or simply getting a job.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans and foreigners languish in the watch-list system, considered “known or suspected terrorists” based on secret rules and evidence that are basically impenetrable should the average suspect attempt to contest them, says a new report by the ACLU that highlights these challenges.

The US terrorist watch list system, which is shared with state and local law enforcement agencies, can stifle overseas travel, the ability to obtain a US visa or entry into the US, and can lead to invasive screenings or detentions by authorities at airports and the like.

This is not to mention the social pressure of being considered a terror suspect by the US, which can lead to a host of problems ranging from separation from family to ostracization from a community or place of employment, for example.

Despite the endless effects that can stem from being placed in the watch-list system, the US has not taken proper care to avoid the basic fairness principle of innocent until proven guilty, according to the ACLU.

`Moscow court sentences eight people to trial over mass disorder during rally in Russian Capital’

#AceWorldNews says the Zamoskoretsky District court in Moscow on Monday started announcing the sentence to eight people in the trial over mass disorder during a rally in the Russian capital on May 6, 2012.

On February 21, they were found guilty of mass riots and attacks on police officers during street violence. Four people in the case were released late last year under amnesty, which could not be applied for the rest as they had been charged with attacking police officers.
