Maine Focus Gabor Degre | BDN Ireland Webb, a student at Thomas College, reported separate instances of unwanted sexual contact and sexual harassment by different male students at the college in Waterville. By Erin Rhoda, BDN Staff • April 29, 2019 6:00 am This is the first of two stories. The second will publish later today. Ireland Webb thought she was going to be raped. It was Aug. 12, 2016, and a male student from Thomas College in Waterville, where she was starting as a freshman, had asked her to wear a dress. It was their first date and first time meeting after talking online, and he had told her he wanted the date to be a surprise. But when he picked her up at the college, he didn’t have a plan, Webb said. After driving to a couple places, including Walmart, where he bought frosted animal crackers with sprinkles, he took her to his family’s home in a nearby town.

Others can. “How can five or six different experts come up with totally different diagnosis with the same evidence and testimonies? Is it because of newer information or training? Please explain.” Lazarou says all the experts got slightly different evidence. And they all interviewed Jonchuck at different times, and for different lengths of time. “If they got different information, that could lead to different conclusions,” she says, They also all had different training, she explains. Next question: “In your opinion, does the idea of saving the world show empathy?” “If someone actually, genuinely thought they were saving the world by doing something, I’d say yes.

America’s foremost attorney for far-right extremists wanted “a little gravy,” then lied to cover it up. That’s just part of his twisted journey through a lax legal system. By Luke O'Brien 12/27/2018 03:09 pm ET Updated 20 minutes ago One morning this June, a group of lawyers filed into the office of the State Bar of Nevada and closed the door. It was summer in Las Vegas, the morning temperature already nearing 100 degrees, but inside the low-slung tan building, the lawyers had a chilly question to address: what to do about one of their own. Marc Randazza had been a problem for years. Randazza, who represents conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and many other far-right extremists, had long relied on lawyer buddies to pump his public image.

I take a breath. Am I really going to become a prison guard? Now that it might actually happen, it feels scary and a bit extreme. From the editor: Why we sent a reporter to work as a private prison guard I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation’s 1.6 million prisoners. As a journalist, it’s nearly impossible to get an unconstrained look inside our penal system.
