Man convicted of 2012 theater shooting sentenced to life

New York residents likely remember the shooting that occurred at a movie theater in Colorado on July 20, 2012. While moviegoers were watching "The Dark Knight Rises" in a Denver suburb, a man dressed in complete body armor entered the theater and began shooting. James Holmes, the man convicted for the shooting, was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Aug. 26.

Cursing Police Not Probable Cause for Arrest

The Court of Appeals needed only a memorandum opinion to explain that police did not have probable cause to arrest, for disorderly conduct, a man who shouted obscenities at them in a subway station. Unlike typical probable cause determinations that are beyond review in the State's high court because they involve mixed questions of law and fact, there was "no record support for the motion court's determination that the defendant's rant against the police officers constituted disorderly conduct."

Woman accused of bring weapons to 9/11 memorial

A tourist was reportedly taken into police custody on Aug. 1 after she was accused of bringing weapons to the Sept. 11 memorial in New York. Authorities stated that the woman, who was from Texas, told a police officer that she was in possession of the weapons and they were in a backpack.

Penalties for involuntary manslaughter in New York

Crimes that would result in an involuntary manslaughter charge in many states will lead to a charge of manslaughter in the second degree in New York. A charge of manslaughter in the second degree is generally filed against individuals who have acted recklessly and caused the death of another. However, this charge may also be brought against those who take part in assisted suicides. The charge may be upgraded to aggravated manslaughter when the victim is a police or peace officer.
