Jodi Arias is due back in court for a hearing ahead of her planned Sept. 29 penalty phase retrial.
The first debate between gubernatorial candidates Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal was what I expected it to be. Their positions on education and jobs are quite well known. Both spoke well, dressed alike and were pleasant. It was what was to be expected.
Jodi Arias no longer wants to represent herself in the upcoming second penalty phase in her murder case.
The longtime funnyman has been making audiences laugh for nearly three decades, but that’s only a fraction of his repertoire. He’s also a film and television actor, co-owner of the Laugh Factory on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip, a philanthropist, chairman of the California Latino Water Coalition and a hardcore Republican who supported candidate Mitt Romney in the last presidential election.
The Arizona Supreme Court has ruled that a Mesa woman must serve back-to-back sentences for killing her 10-month-old daughter.
A man released from prison on Sunday is now suspected in a shooting death that occurred just hours after his release.
To drive down the 101 and admire Talking Stick Resort, Salt River Fields and pristine farmland you’d never guess that beyond the obvious beauty and the increasing wealth of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community there exists an extremely serious crime problem. A crime problem driven by organized crime gangs with ties to prison gangs and, ultimately Mexico based drug cartels, whose crime sprees don't stop at tribal boundaries, but extend well into the bordering cities of Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe and beyond.
A man has been sentenced to five years in prison in the fatal hit-and-run death of a man riding an adult-sized tricycle in Mesa in 2013.
“I moved to the Valley 19 years ago. I was warned not to live in Mesa because people there did not have an open mind. The Vent of August 17 asking for an ASU season ticket refund because of an openly gay football player really proves that nothing ever changes in Mesa.”
It took all of two seconds for me to lose any enthusiasm for the “Expendables 3,” and an additional three seconds to realize how stupid the additional two-plus more hours of screen time would be. It came from on-screen text to inform the audience the train they’re seeing on screen is an “armored prison transport,” which is made quite clear once star Sylvester Stallone and his compatriots start shooting the heck out of that thing. What that reveals is a supercilious attitude of the audience's ability to decipher the action on screen – a habit the filmmakers fall back on repeatedly – and an overarching inability to do something interesting with staid material.
Jodi Arias is set for a court appearance ahead of the second penalty phase in her murder trial.
State prison officials have no right to read mail sent by inmates to their attorneys, a federal appeals court ruled Monday.
While Pinal County “Sheriff Underpants” Paul Babeu has been out on the campaign trail touting gubernatorial candidate and “forensic accountant” Christine Jones, Pinal County Jail employees have been sweating bullets worrying about whether or not they’re going to have a job. All that thanks to the long running dispute between their boss and the federal government over the cost to house federal prisoners in the county jail and any number of other Babeu made up reasons to bad mouth the feds.
I keep regressing back to 10-year-old Eric mode when thinking about “Guardians of the Galaxy.” That little me, who comes packaged with a Lloyd Christmas haircut and habit of wearing utterly unflattering sweatpants, gets overeager and wicked tongue tied trying to express enthusiasm. The best part of a film or TV show or book was X, and Y, and sometimes Zed and Alpha too.
Five of the six Republican candidates for governor debated a multitude of topics at a forum hosted by the East Valley Chambers of Commerce Alliance on July 28.
I have to admit that when Marvel Studios first announced that they were making Guardians of the Galaxy one of their next films, my befuddled reaction was, “Huh?” I don’t think this secondary comic book title was on anyone’s radar, and I would have been less surprised to hear they were going to remake Howard the Duck (which is actually not a bad idea – especially given today’s motion-capture technology and the right script.) But somehow they have made this relatively unknown and offbeat team of losers into some of the coolest movie heroes ever.
The state is asking federal judge to throw out a lawsuit filed on behalf of more than 34,000 inmates, saying there's no evidence each and every prisoner is at risk.
State judges cannot bar those placed on probation from using medical marijuana if they are otherwise eligible, the state Court of Appeals ruled Friday. And that even includes those who were convicted for drug offenses.
A federal appeals court refused Friday to overturn the conviction of a man in connection with a 1992 robbery and triple murder in Tucson, saying any lies told by a detective were not material.
The Chandler Police Department has released information about a convicted sex offender who has moved to the city.
The questions were about improving Arizona's economy.
After living in Arizona my entire life and having been around and working with Arizona sheriffs like Cochise County sheriffs Jimmy Willson and Larry Dever, Coconino County Sheriff Joe Richards and Maricopa County Sheriff Jerry Hill, and even Joe Arpaio on one of his good days, it’s hard to imagine the new face of Arizona sheriffs is Pinal County “Sheriff Underpants” Paul Babeu.
One of the candidates claims he would make Arizona students learn civics as a graduation requirement. I think it was ‘the Ducey.’ Hope the course includes the topic on who is responsible for illegal immigration. Maybe Dougy needs to retake it.
A Mesa resident convicted of killing a man with a hammer and dumping the victim's body in the desert has been sentenced to 22 years in prison.
