He was awarded death penalty. The High Court affirmed the death sentence awarded by the Trial Court and dismissed the appeal filed by the accused.While referring to the evidence on record, the Apex Court bench observed that it has been established beyond any shadow of doubt that the accused committed the acts of rape and sexual assault upon the victim and that the resultant injury was the cause of death of the victim. “Considering the age of the victim in the present case, the accused must have known the consequence that his sexual assault on a child of 2 ½ years would cause death or such bodily injury as was likely to cause her death. The instant matter thus comes within the parameters of clause fourthly to Section 300 IPC and the question posed at the beginning of the discussion on this issue must be answered against the Appellant. The Appellant is therefore guilty of having committed the offence of culpable homicide amounting to murder.”, the bench observed.In the judgement, the bench referred to a table of  67 cases were dealt with by the Supreme Court in last 40 years since the decision of this Court in Bachan Singh , where i) the alleged offences were under Sections 376 and 302 IPC; and ii) the ages of the victims were 16 years or below. “Out of these 67 cases, at least in 51 cases the victims were aged below 12 years. In 12 out of those 51 cases, the death sentence was initially awarded. However, in 3 cases (at Sr. Nos. 26A, 33A and 41A) the death sentence was commuted to life sentence in Review”, the bench noted.Regarding the sentence, the bench observed that merely on account of infraction of Section 235 (2) of the Code, the death sentence ought not to be commuted to life imprisonment. On the issue whether in cases of circumstantial evidence, death penalty can be imposed, the bench referred to various precedents and observed thus:a) it is not as if imposition of death penalty is impermissible to be awarded in circumstantial evidence cases; and b) if the circumstantial evidence is of an unimpeachable character in establishing the guilt of the accused and leads to an exceptional case or the evidence sufficiently convinces the judicial mind that the option of a sentence lesser than death penalty is foreclosed, the death penalty can be imposed.It must therefore be held that merely because the instant case is based on circumstantial evidence there is no reason to commute the death sentence. However, the matter must be considered in the light of the aforestated principles and see whether the circumstantial evidence is of unimpeachable character and the option of a lesser sentence is foreclosed.The court said that, however, while dealing with cases based on circumstantial evidence, for imposition of a death sentence, higher or stricter standard must be insisted upon. The bench thus proceeded to consider the following aspects (A) Whether the circumstantial evidence in the present case is of unimpeachable character in establishing the guilt of the Appellant or leads to an exceptional case. (B) Whether the evidence on record is so strong and convincing that the option of a sentence lesser than a death penalty is foreclosed? On the first question, the bench observed:”The circumstances are clear, consistent and conclusive in nature and are of unimpeachable character in establishing the guilt of the Appellant. The evidence on record also depicts an exceptional case where two and half years old girl was subjected to sexual assault. The assault was accompanied by bites on the body of the victim. The rape was of such intensity that there was merging of vaginal and anal orifices of the victim. The age of the victim, the fact that the Appellant was a maternal uncle of the victim and the intensity of the assault make the present case an exceptional one.”The court then observed that it does not find the option of a sentence lesser than death penalty is completely foreclosed. It observed:”It is true that the sexual assault was very severe and the conduct of the Appellant could be termed as perverse and barbaric. However, a definite pointer in favour of the Appellant is the fact that he did not consciously cause any injury with the intent to extinguish the life of the victim. Though all the injuries are attributable to him and it was injury No.17 which was the cause of death, his conviction under Section 302 IPC is not under any of the first three clauses of Section 300 IPC. In matters where the conviction is recorded with the aid of clause fourthly under Section 300 of IPC, it is very rare that the death sentence is awarded”,Referring to the table, the bench said that where the victims were below 16 years of age and had died during the course of sexual assault on them, the maximum sentence awarded was life sentence. This aspect is of crucial importance while considering whether the option of a sentence lesser than death penalty is foreclosed or not, it added. The court also observed that, in view of the fact that Section 376A IPC was brought on the statute book just few days before the commission of the offence, the accused does not deserve death penalty for said offence.Case: SHATRUGHNA BABAN MESHRAM vs. STATE OF MAHARASHTRA [CRIMINAL APPEAL NOS.763-764 OF 2016]Coram:  Justices Uday Umesh Lalit, Krishna Murari and Indu MalhotraCounsel: Sr. Adv Sonia Mathur, Adv Sushil KaranjkarClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Man arrested for threatening to kill Schiff, Schumer over impeachment

first_imgRawf8/iStock(NEW YORK) — A Western New York man was arrested Wednesday on charges that he threatened to kill Rep. Adam Schiff and Sen. Chuck Schumer.Salvatore Lippa, 57, of Greece, New York, was charged with threatening to assault and murder a federal official on account of the performance of their official duties.According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 23, Schiff’s Washington, D.C., office received a threatening voicemail that included a death threat.Lippa started the threatening message by calling the congressman “Schiff, Shifty Schiff,” invoking the nickname used by President Donald Trump for Schiff, the lead House manager during Trump’s impeachment trial.Almost two weeks later, on Feb. 4, Schumer received a threatening voicemail at his New York office that also contained a death threat.In the threat, Lippa paired Schumer with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying “Hey, Schumer, you and Nancy Pelosi are…” according to the complaint.When questioned by U.S Capitol Police, Lippa admitted to making the threatening calls to Schiff and Schumer because he said he was upset about the impeachment proceedings, prosecutors said.“The rights secured in our Constitution carry with them certain responsibilities. When it comes to the First Amendment, that responsibility includes the obligation not to threaten to kill others,” U.S Attorney James Kennedy said in a statement.Lippa is due in federal court in Rochester on Wednesday afternoon. He faces up to 10 years in prison.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Colorado man arrested in 1982 cold case murders of two women, authorities say

first_imgPark County Sheriff’s OfficeBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(FAIRPLAY, Colo.) — A Colorado man has been arrested in connection with the unsolved murders of two women who were found dead in 1982, authorities said.Alan Lee Phillips, 70, of Dumont, Colorado, was taken into custody without incident in Clear Creek County on Feb. 24 and is currently being held at the Park County Jail in the town of Fairplay, about 90 miles southwest of Denver. Park County Sheriff Tom McGrath announced the arrest on Wednesday.“I am honored to make this important announcement after nearly 40 years have passed since these murders took place,” McGrath said during a press conference at the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s headquarters in Lakewood. “This arrest is the culmination of technology, extraordinary police work and an unwavering commitment to justice for Bobbi Jo, Annette and their families.”Barbara “Bobbi” Jo Oberholtzer, 29, and Annette Kay Schnee, 21, were both last seen alive on Jan. 6, 1982, while hitchhiking outside the town of Breckenridge in Summit County. The women were not together, according to investigators.Oberholtzer’s body was found the following day on the 11,500-foot summit of Hoosier Pass just off Colorado State Highway 9, some 10 miles south of Breckenridge. Schnee’s body was located almost six months later in a rural area of Park County, about 20 miles south of Breckenridge. Both women had been shot to death, according to investigators.As the months passed and leads faded, the cases went cold. Many of the detectives who had worked the case have long since retired or died, according to Denver ABC affiliate KMGH.Schnee’s mother, Eileen Franklin, was still holding out hope that justice would one day be served.“I’ve been waiting,” Franklin, 87, said in an interview last summer with KMGH. “But my time is running out.”Last year, investigators uncovered new information using genetic genealogy to identify a potential suspect in the cases. Following comprehensive investigative work, authorities obtained arrest warrants for Phillips in February, according to the Park County Sheriff’s Office.Phillips faces two counts each of first-degree kidnapping, assault and homicide. It was not immediately clear whether he has obtained legal representation.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

The Devil reads Vogue

first_imgDeputy Fashion editor of The Guardian (and former editor of Cherwell) Hadley Freeman warns that fashion journalism isn’t all about doing lunch, meeting celebrities and bitching. Hadley Freeman is by no means the kind of journalist we usually associate with the hair-flicking, airbrushed world of Vogue, Tatler, or even the fashion section of the Guardian.  As she walked over to the reception area of 119 Farringdon Road (the Guardian HQ) she immediately struck me as quite a normal person. No ridiculously puffed-up hair, no huge bag stuffed with the entire cosmetics section of Selfridges – not even, it seemed, wearing any make up.  Fashion journalism brings with it images of a champagne sipping, celebrity mingling, Chihuahua-cuddling world. If we take Hadley for our model, so to speak, then this could not be further from the truth.Hadley’s journey to her current position as Deputy Fashion Editor of the Guardian, and a contributing editor of Vogue, started surprisingly close to home. Hadley was an English undergraduate at St. Anne’s, which she descrbies as “that ugly, concrete one”; she also honed her journalistic prowess here at Cherwell, where she was Editor in Michaelmas 1998. “I knew I wanted to do some form of journalism at University, so I went along to Freshers’ Fair and picked up a card for both the student papers. When it came to going along to meetings, I found that Cherwell had been clever enough to put a map on the back of the card. So I ended up there, and started writing film reviews.” Hadley is quick to explain that the world of fashion journalism differs greatly from the stereotypes generated by films such as The Devil Wears Prada. “Most fashion journalists are not calorie counting, champagne guzzling, peroxide-blonde darlings; the fashion world, and in particular fashion journalism, is a highly demanding, highly competitive industry.” Fashion journalism seems to suit Hadley Freeman, both personally and as a journalist: she comes across as someone who, thankfully, does not take herself too seriously. This is apparent from her writing, which is often very tongue in cheek without appearing to be aloof; a balance which is hard to strike when dealing with some of the characters she has to handle on a day to day basis. Her columns and articles on Guardian Unlimited are a testimony to this: topics range from Kanye West and his Derrida-esque linguistic strategies to Paris Hilton’s chihuahua’s latest brush with the law.  In essence, then, Hadley is quick to recognise the fundamental paradox of her trade: “As a fashion journalist you must be aware of the silliness of your subject, but not apologise for it. Fashion has a stigma; nevertheless there’s no reason to feel guilty about it.”The fashion world has a marked relationship with celebrity and Hadley’s blog is filled with insightful, witty comments about celebrities and their ‘love’ for fashion. Our discussion led to the recent activity of Sean ‘P.Diddy’ Combes – ‘rapper’, ‘producer’ and all-round party animal. “I’m convinced that P.Diddy was sent to this planet to make me laugh…he’s like a pseudo-ghetto court jester”, Hadley notes.  Indeed, she has a number of excellent Diddy-related anecdotes, the best of which relates her experience at one of his own fashion shows. The star held it to market his clothing line Sean John, but it seemed little more than a front for nudity. He had a number of women walk out wearing nothing but suede bikini tops and g-strings – resembling what Hadley refers to as “Flintstones go porn.”Any conversation concerning the fashion world these days undoubtedly touches on that media favourite, the body image presented by the industry and its effect on teenage girls.  Hadley’s stance on the subject is interesting; particularly her response to claims that modern fashion overly sexualises women. “The idea that feminism is incompatible with fashion is absurd. Feminism is not about having hairy armpits and wearing frumpy dresses. We have this idea that women’s fashion is designed purely for male gratification. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Moreover women lead the fashion industry wherever you look – it is a supportive industry, where it is quite normal for a woman to be incredibly high powered.”The end of our discussion led us to the future of fashion journalism: where is fashion headed? What does the rise of the internet mean for the press?  First of all, Hadley quite rightly points out that print is very much still the way forward: “You can’t read a Blackberry on the beach – it just wouldn’t be practical; similarly, the fashion press isn’t going anywhere: we are like cockroaches”. Moreover, Hadley predicts a push within the industry towards more sustainable fashion and a move away from the throwaway culture of late.Either way, it is clear that Hadley Freeman is one to watch in the future of fashion media. Whatever the next few years hold, she promises one thing: she will never forget those hours spent cultivating headlines for front pages, rewriting shoddily written features and formulating letters addressed to herself at ‘that little pink building next to Christ Church’.last_img read more
