Convicted sex offender admits to transporting child porn

Thursday, 12 September 2013 15:15 Published in Local News

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a man convicted twice of sexually assaulting young boys in Missouri has pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography.

Forty-year-old Sean Lawrence of Kansas City, Mo. entered the plea Thursday in U.S. District Court in of Delaware.

According to court documents, Lawrence came to the attention of a Wilmington-based Homeland Security Investigations special agent in February. Officials say Lawrence provided the undercover agent with access to his non-public, peer-to-peer network. The agent was able to download child pornography.

Authorities say federal agents in Kansas City arrested Lawrence as he was downloading a video of child pornography in a community college library.

Lawrence was convicted in 1995 and 2005 of sodomizing two young boys. He faces a maximum of 40 years in prison at sentencing Jan. 6.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis judge says she expects to soon rule on a 69-year-old inmate's request to overturn his convictions for the 1982 killing of a young mother and brutal assaults on her two daughters.

Rodney Lee Lincoln returned to court Thursday, three decades after he was convicted of manslaughter and first-degree assault in the death of JoAnn Tate and attacks on her daughters, who were then 7 and 4 years old.

Lincoln's case was one of six chosen by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce in 2003 for further scrutiny and DNA testing. His lawyers say the subsequent tests show that a crime scene hair doesn't belong to Lincoln and proves his innocence.  Prosecutors say the DNA results don't change the guilt of Lincoln, who is serving a life sentence.

 

Missouri loses arbitration with tobacco companies

Thursday, 12 September 2013 14:17 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says the state has lost an arbitration case and will refund money it receives through a multi-state settlement with tobacco companies.

The attorney general's office says it is reviewing the order to determine how much Missouri will need to refund. The funds will be deducted from a payment the cigarette manufacturers make this upcoming April.

A three-judge arbitration panel sided with more than 30 cigarette manufacturers' claims that Missouri and several other states had failed to diligently enforce state tobacco laws in 2003 as was required in a 1998 legal settlement with 46 states. The tobacco settlement agreement was reached in 1998.

Missouri's share of the tobacco settlement was about $150 million in 2003.
