Former Madoff employs select trial over plea deal

Over the course of the past few years it is likely that few have escaped from hearing some news about the Ponzi scheme Bernard Madoff admitted to running for decades. Besides Madoff’s guilty plea, multiple other individuals who worked with him also plead guilty to crimes associated with the scheme. In addition, in conjunction with the guilty plea some also testified against others. Presumably, in exchange for their testimony and plea they will receive a lighter sentence than they otherwise would have.

Cee Lo Green charged with felony drug charge

Each week many residents of Houston, Texas, likely tune in to the television show "The Voice," to watch some of their favorite performers build a team of singers hoping to make it in the business. One of those four judges is Cee Lo Green. It is likely that Green is thinking less about mentoring performers these days however, as he was recently charged with a drug felony. More specifically the quirky performer is accused of providing a woman with the drug ecstasy in the course of a dinner date. The 38-year-old was charged with furnishing a controlled substance. He pled not guilty.

Complaints lead police to arrest 2 Houston women for prostitution

Each day individuals throughout the Houston area are arrested for crimes. The arrests arise out of a variety of different circumstances and no two crimes are alike. What the cases do have in common is the option to mount a defense against the criminal charges in a court of law. Two women from Houston are experiencing this firsthand. They were both arrested and charged with prostitution. While many times prostitution arrests are the result of an organized sting, law enforcement indicated this was not the case in this situation. Instead, the arrests stemmed from complaints the police received from others who were at their same location.
