SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A 42-year-old Springfield man is facing up to 40 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to participating in a scheme to sell thousands of counterfeit DVDs over the Internet.

Matthew Cerullo pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in Springfield to mail fraud, trafficking in counterfeit labels, trafficking in counterfeit goods and making false statements to federal agents.

Prosecutors say the federal probe began after a shipment of counterfeit DVDs from Hong Kong addressed to a UPS store in Missouri was seized at JFK Airport in New York.

Cerullo told investigators he had not received a seizure notice from Customs and Border Protection, and that he does not buy DVDs. Agents who later served a search warrant found four prior seizure notices in his desk and more than 22,000 DVDs.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has ruled against a Highway Patrol trooper's same-sex partner who sought survivor benefits.

Patrol Cpl. Dennis Engelhard died in December 2009 when he was struck by a vehicle while investigating an accident on Interstate 44 in Eureka.

Missouri law entitles surviving spouses of Highway Patrol officers killed in the line of duty to an annuity. Engelhard's partner, Kelly Glossip, did not receive the benefit.

In a 5-2 ruling Tuesday, the Supreme Court said Glossip was denied benefits because he and Engelhard were not married - not because of his sexual orientation.

The court noted that Glossip had not challenged Missouri's prohibition of same-sex marriage.

 

Circus performer who died in traffic accident, ID'ed

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 13:46 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A popular circus performer from St. Louis has been identified as the victim of a fiery accident.

Police on Tuesday said 21-year-old Reginald Moore died in the wreck. Moore lost control of his 2003 Toyota Corolla on Friday afternoon and crashed into a concrete support for a railroad trestle.

A passing motorist stopped and pulled Moore from the car before it completely caught fire, but he had severe head and face injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The injuries were so severe that it took days for positive identification.

Moore was a juggler and acrobat for Circus Harmony.
