ONGOING CRIME BREAKING NEWS!

Starting in January 2020, this thread is about the news as it breaks!


Bernard Madoff says he is dying and is asking a judge for compassionate release from prison, where he is serving 150 years for orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme in history, according to a Wednesday federal court filing.

Madoff, 81, has terminal kidney failure and a life expectancy of less than 18 months. When the court sentenced him, “it was clear that Madoff’s 150-year prison sentence was symbolic for three reasons: retribution, deterrence, and for the victims,” the court filing states. “This Court must now consider whether keeping Madoff incarcerated … is truly in furtherance of statutory sentencing goals and our society’s value and understanding of compassion.”

Madoff said in the request for compassionate release that he “does not dispute the severity of his crimes.”


IMO- stay in jail

Drew Peterson, Stacy's husband and a former Bolingbrook police sergeant, is in prison for killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Cassandra Cales, Stacy's sister, will not give up her quest for justice.

Divers in the south suburbs Friday were following the lead from a team equipped with sophisticated sonar equipment, who located what they said could be human bones.

This case has a thread here. I didn't see it until yesterday. In it they do name him and the pictures are there. Interestingly they also make public the juvenile hearing which is parents were present at, I don't know that I had ever seen done before. Juvenile proceedings are usually kept private aren't they? Anyhow, if interested, here it is:
