Disciplinary action expected for former St. Louis mayor

Tuesday, 10 December 2013 12:35 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A state panel says that former St. Louis mayor Freeman Bosley can expect to face disciplinary action from the Missouri Supreme Court for mishandling clients' legal fees.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Bosley acknowledged improper financial practices at his law firm during a Monday hearing of the court's Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel .

The state alleges Bosley combined his own money with clients' funds, used trust-account money to pay personal expenses and failed to keep accurate records. The state investigation shows Bosley may owe about $6,250 to third-party health care providers.

The disciplinary panel's punishment options include reprimand, probation, suspension and disbarment.

Bosley was St. Louis' first black mayor, elected in 1993. He lost a 1997 re-election bid and went into private law practice.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster's office has appealed the stay of execution for convicted killer Allen Nicklasson, calling the federal appeals court ruling "an abuse of discretion."

A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday granted a stay for Nicklasson, scheduled to be put to death at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for killing businessman Richard Drummond nearly two decades ago.

Late Monday, Koster's office asked for a hearing before the full 8th Circuit. By Tuesday morning, no decision had been made on that appeal.

After going nearly three years without an execution, Missouri had been preparing for its second in three weeks. The state executed racist serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin on Nov. 20. It was the first execution in Missouri using a single drug, pentobarbital.

Girlfriend wants charges dropped against Zimmerman

Monday, 09 December 2013 17:26 Published in National News

 ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - George Zimmerman is asking a judge to change the terms of his bond so he can have contact with the girlfriend he's accused of assaulting.

 

   Zimmerman on Monday filed an affidavit from his girlfriend that says she doesn't want him charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief.

   In the signed affidavit, Samantha Scheibe says she hasn't been coerced into the request. She says detectives misinterpreted what she said. In the affidavit, she calls Zimmerman "my boyfriend."

 

   Zimmerman was arrested last month after Scheibe accused him in a call to 911 of pointing a gun at her, smashing a coffee table and pushing her outside.

 

   Prosecutors could continue with the case despite Scheibe's request.

   Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime last summer in the shooting death of teen Trayvon Martin.
