Local exoneree shares journey, discusses justice system

first_imgThe Notre Dame Exoneration Project invited local exoneree Ray McCann and his attorney, Greg Swygert, to share McCann’s story with Notre Dame students Tuesday at the Eck Hall of Law. The two discussed McCann‘s road to justice and exonerations‘ role in bringing about political reform.McCann was accused of sexually assaulting and then suffocating an 11-year-old girl, Jodi Parrack, to death in 2007. Due to a lack of any kind of physical evidence linking McCann to the crime, he was never prosecuted for the sexual assault and murder of Parrack. Even so, friends and some family turned against him as news that he was the prime suspect spread. Then, in 2014, McCann was arrested and prosecutors instead tried to charge McCann with 5 different counts of perjury, which McCann speculated may have been a technique used to elicit a confession.“Personally, I thought it was a scare tactic,” he said. “Call it tunnel vision or whatever they had, they thought I had something to do with it. Personally I think it was their way of holding me for as long as they could to see if I had anything to due with it”These counts of perjury were largely based on the conflicting recollections of people McCann interacted with around the case eight years after the fact. However due to a unique statute of Michigan law, perjury in a case connected to a murder carries a potential life sentence. Due to the nature of the evidence, the prosecutor only proceeded with one of the perjury charges, which relied on supposed video evidence that later proved to be of dubious quality and usefulness. McCann took a plea deal in which he pled no contest to the single perjury charge and was sentenced to 20 months in prison.“I was wrongfully convicted of a perjury charge,” McCann said. “I took the plea, no contest, because I knew it was the fastest way to get back to my family.”McCann spent six months in isolation, during which time he lost his voice due to lack of use. He was then moved to a prison where, due to his background as a former cop and the nature of the crime he was associated with, he received death threats upon arrival. During McCann’s time in prison, a man named Daniel Furlong confessed to the sexual assault and murder of Jodi Parrack. His DNA was also found on her body, making it clear Furlong was the culprit. Though Furlong insisted that he did not know McCann and that he had nothing to do with the crime, McCann stayed in prison until he had served his full sentence of 20 months.  “Being in jail, knowing you didn’t do anything wrong, it’s a scary feeling,” McCann said. With the help of Greg Swygert and the Center on Wrongful Convictions, McCann was eventually exonerated after a lengthy legal battle. However, irreparable damage had already been done. After his time in prison, McCann had trouble readjusting to a world that still remembered him for a crime he did not commit. He struggled with acclimating to life outside of prison as well as depression, drinking and even suicidal thoughts. Swygert focused on the particulars of this case and the larger issues in the justice system it brought to light in his portion of the lecture. “What Ray’s case most shows is prosecutorial overreach,” he said. “Ray wasn’t charged with the rape and murder of Jodi Parrack, he was charged with perjury. It was done to coerce Ray to talk.”Another ethical issue, Swygert said, involved the tactics prosecutors used to try to make McCann confess.“The prosecutor went and acted like an interrogator, he told him things that were not true,” Swygert said. “Which raises some ethical questions.”This is because, unlike cops who are generally allowed to lie to interrogation suspects in order to get information or a confession, McCann was lied to by a prosecutor during what was technically a legal proceeding. This puts the exchange on shaky ground morally, and highlights a potential problem, or at least a degree of moral ambiguity in Michigan law.  “The system isn’t perfect”, professor Jimmy Gurule, who introduced McCann and Swygert, said. Gurule said 1 in 3 exonerations involved cases in which the person had been sentenced to a minimum of 50 years. Organizations like the Center on Wrongful Convictions look to right these wrongs through exoneration but use the issues raised to improve the justice system.  “If some good comes out of this, its that people are now working to make sure that this doesn’t happen to other people,” McCann said.

Trump announces sixth vaccine contract, for 100 million doses

first_imgThe company, founded less than 10 years ago, has not previously developed a vaccine of any kind but preliminary results of the company’s experimental COVID-19 vaccine have reportedly produced promising results.The Trump administration has allocated a total of at least $10.9 billion for the development and manufacturing of a coronavirus vaccine.It has already ordered 100 million vaccine doses from Johnson & Johnson, Novavax, Pfizer and Sanofi and 300 million from AstraZeneca. Moderna, in partnership with the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), is conducting Phase 3 clinical trials of a vaccine candidate and manufacturing of vaccine doses will take place while the trials are underway.The vaccine, called mRNA-1273, is being co-developed by Moderna and the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is led by Dr Anthony Fauci.Fauci has said researchers are unlikely to know the efficacy of the vaccine before the end of the year at the earliest. But Trump has said he hopes to have a vaccine before the November 3 presidential election.The latest contract brings the US government’s total commitments to Moderna to $2.48 billion. President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced a $1.5 billion contract with US biotech company Moderna for 100 million doses of an eventual coronavirus vaccine, the sixth such deal reached since May.”I’m pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with Moderna to manufacture and deliver 100 million doses of their coronavirus vaccine candidate,” Trump said at a White House news conference. “The federal government will own these vaccine doses, we’re buying them.””We’re on track to rapidly produce 100 million doses as soon as the vaccine is approved, and up to 500 million shortly thereafter, so we’ll have 600 million doses,” he added.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Melburnians invading the Far Northern property market

first_imgAerial view of Bentley Park housing and home construction. PICTURE: BRENDAN RADKEA leading real estate researcher is predicting as many as 30,000 people will flee Melbourne over next two years due to the extended coronavirus lockdown, but a Far North agent says they’re already here. Propertyology researcher Simon Pressley said the mass exodus would mark one of the biggest ever swings in internal migration in an Australian city. MORE NEWS “Whether they relocate to a Victorian regional location, such as Bendigo, Wodonga, the Great Ocean Road region, or … completely leave the state, thousands of Melburnians will take action to regain their ­freedom,” he said.“People are also starting to understand (COVID-19) is going to be with us for years, and where there’s greater density, there’s greater risk. We know there are people who’ve already left Melbourne.” Melburnians are reportedly buying one-way tickets to Cairns with the intention of buying property in the Far North. Picture: NCA NewsWire / Bianca De Marchi “The Victorians do tend to be interested in the more “holiday suburbs” – Palm Cove and Trinity,” he said. “Most of those comments have been on Palm Cove apartments. They’re apartments that have been holiday-let but they can be resided in as well and we’re seeing mostly people that are semi-retired.” Mr Marsh the said the Far North was becoming a desirable location for more than just Victorians, after he recently sold three houses sight unseen to a New South Wales couple.“They’re a couple from Sydney and they don’t plan on moving up for a couple of years, but the Far North is in demand and they’re just forward planning.” arun.singhmann@news.com.au Cairns’ Marsh Property principal Chris Marsh said some of those residents who had left Melbourne were already in the Far North. “We’ve spoken to Victorians that have managed to come up here just after the borders closed, with the intention of holidaying and buying property,” Mr Marsh said. “They’ve gone into hotel isolation, paid a better part of $1000 for a one-way flight. “And they’ve said ‘to hell with Melbourne, we’re not going back. I’ve already rung the removalist to pack up my house, we’re buying something up here, we’re living up here’.”Mr Marsh said he had about 12 “very serious” Victorian buyers, with two sales to Melburnians already since July, and his agency had reported a 40 per cent increase in interest from southern investors since September last year.

Severe hypoglycaemia cause found

first_imgHealthLifestyle Severe hypoglycaemia cause found by: – October 8, 2011 Share Share Tweet If blood sugar levels drop too far it can lead to unconsciousnessThe cause of a rare and severe form of hypoglycaemia – or very low levels of sugar in the blood – is genetic, say researchers.The life-threatening condition means the body does not have enough energy to function.Scientists at the University of Cambridge say mutations in the AKT2 gene are to blame.Writing in the journal Science, they say there are already cancer drugs which target a similar process.Hypoglycaemia can be caused by a disruption in the balance between the hormone insulin and sugar. Insulin lowers the level of sugar in the blood.The condition is commonly associated with Type 1 diabetes, when the patients inject too much insulin, miss a meal or drink alcohol.However, one-in-100,000 babies are born with a genetic defect which means they develop hypoglycaemia even when there is no insulin in the blood. In theory they should have very high blood sugar levels.These patients have to have a feeding tube inserted directly into the stomach to prevent fits while they are asleep.One of the researchers, Dr Robert Semple, said: “Fear of low blood sugar has dominated the lives of these patients and their families.”Scientists analysed the genetic code of three children with the condition. All had a mutation in the AKT2 gene.AKT2 acts as an interpreter for the hormone insulin. With the mutation, the interpreter acts as though insulin is always present, lowering blood sugar levels.Lead researcher Prof Stephen O’Rahilly told the BBC that cancer drugs were available which targeted AKT1 and which also act against AKT2.“There are actual pills that can be swallowed by humans, there could be a treatment in a year.”BBC Newscenter_img Sharing is caring! 11 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Shares recover after Ferguson quits

first_img From an opening price of 18.77 US dollars, the shares fell by as much as 4.5 per cent to under the 18-dollar mark and then revived significantly. The value of a share at the close of trading was 18.44 dollars, 33 cents down – a 1.76 per cent drop – and still higher than the share price on Friday last week. United’s overall market value fell from 3.09 billion dollars (£1.98 billion) to 3.04 billion dollars (£1.95 billion) – a fall of 50 million dollars (£32 million). The shares initially fell in New York amid fears over the impact that Ferguson’s departure will have on the club. News of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement caused an initial dip in Manchester United’s share price on the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, but by the close of trading it had bounced back. The opening bell on Wall Street saw shares down by three per cent, driven lower by worries over whether the club can appoint the right replacement for the most successful manager in English football history. His successor will be the key figure at a business laden with almost £370 million of debt and tightly controlled by its US majority owners, the Glazer family. The club, which trades under the MANU ticker on Wall Street, announced his departure while US markets were closed, but shares slipped on opening as investors digested the impact of the 71-year-old’s departure on one of sport’s most successful franchises. In the prospectus to its 2012 stock market flotation, Manchester United warned: “We are highly dependent on members of our management, coaching staff and our players. Any successor to our current manager may not be as successful as our current manager.” Shares in the club have surged 34 per cent since floating in August at 14 US dollars (£9) per share, closing on Tuesday evening at 18.77 US dollars (£12.11). The flotation allowed the Glazer family to sell 16.7 million shares – equal to a 10 per cent stake. The Glazers bought the Premier League football club for £790 million in 2005 in a controversial deal that enraged fans because they put in just £300 million of their own money and loaded the club with debt. The club’s most recent annual results showed total revenues of £320.3 million for the year to the end of June 2012, down 3.3% on a year earlier. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

New Delhi: Hosts Dabang Delhi on Saturday notched up a thrilling 33-31 win over defending champions Bengaluru Bulls in the first match of the Delhi leg of the Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex here.Naveen Kumar was the star for the Delhi side who trailed for most parts of the match but inflicted a crucial All-Out in the final minutes on the Bulls to walk away with all the points.Bengaluru Bulls started the match on the front foot, racing to a 5-0 lead, with Pawan Sehrawat flying high.

The first half ended 19-11 in favour of the Bengaluru Bulls.The league’s top raider, Pawan Sehrawat started the second half with the same intensity, rushing to his Super 10 (10 raid points) within six minutes of resumption as the Bulls maintained their pressure on Delhi.The home team brought in Meraj Sheykh to add an extra dimension to their raids and the Iranian picked up bonus points to keep Debang Delhi in the game as the match edged closer to the final whistle.Three points by Naveen Kumar in two successive raids with five minutes remaining in the match helped him reach a Super 10 and make it a one-point game.The aggressive strategy saw Delhi force an All-Out on Bulls with 3 minutes remaining to take the lead.But Pawan Sehwarat’s two-point raid tied the match once again with just a minute remaining.Delhi then pulled off an important tackle in the final minute to win the first match of their home leg.Bengaluru will only have themselves to blame for allowing Delhi to clinch so many bonus points and finishing off the game when they were on top.The result saw Delhi move to second spot in the table.last_img read more
