Detroit-area men who sent millions to Yemen spared prisonA group of Detroit-area men opened bank accounts to move millions of dollars to Yemen, their war-torn native country. One by one, U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn declined to send them to prison, despite guidelines that call for a few years or more behind bars. The Detroit area is believed to have the highest U.S. population of Yemenis, a demographic that has risen amid war in Yemen that has killed tens of thousands of people and left millions more with food and health care shortages.

Ex-Illinois student's life spared in killing of scholar

Ex-Illinois student's life spared in killing of scholarA former University of Illinois doctoral student was spared the death penalty Thursday and sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping and killing a 26-year-old scholar from China. Jurors deliberated about eight hours over two days before announcing they were deadlocked on whether 30-year-old Brendt Christensen should be put to death for killing Yingying Zhang in 2017 as part of a homicidal fantasy, automatically resulting in a sentence of life behind bars without the possibility of parole. "The Zhang family … must live with the thought that Yingying was ripped away from them by a total stranger, thousands of miles away, fulfilling his self-absorbed and selfish fantasies," he told Christensen.

FBI backflip agent who accidentally shot man in nightclub spared jail

FBI backflip agent who accidentally shot man in nightclub spared jailThe FBI agent who went viral when he accidentally shot someone as he performed a back flip on a dance floor will not be sent to jail, a court has ruled. Chase Bishop was on holiday when he visited the Mile High Spirits nightclub in Denver, Colorado one evening last June With a crowd of late night revellers cheering him on, the 30-year-old showed off the impressive gymnastic manoeuvre during which his loaded gun fell from the waistband of his trousers. As Bishop bent down to pick up the weapon from the floor, it discharged into the screaming crowd and hit Tom Reddington, a 24-year-old former Amazon warehouse worker, in the leg.  A video of the incident, which shows the agent walking off the dance floor with his hands in the air, subsequently went viral on social media. At the time, Mr Reddington told US media that he thought "some idiot had set off a fire cracker" before looking down at his leg and seeing  the blood. FBI agent Chase Bishop was spared a prison term Credit: REUTERS/File Photo He told the court hearing in Denver on Friday that he has since lost his job and may never be able to run again as a result of the injury. "I have done months of physical therapy,"  he said. "I have sought counselling. However, being in public, especially seeing law enforcement with guns, makes me very uncomfortable." However, he added that he does not hold a personal grudge against Bishop and didn’t think he deserved to spend years in jail. “I’ve done stupid things at bars to impress girls, too,” he said but that he hoped he would not be allowed to own a gun for a "long time". Under his deal with prosecutors, Bishop was sentenced to two years probation. He was also fined $ 1,200 and ordered to pay compensation to the victim.  Speaking in court, he said: “My whole goal in life is to care, protect and serve people,” the  agent told the judge  as he pleaded guilty to third degree assault. “I never expected the result of my actions to lead to something like this.” Kelsey Pietranton, an FBI spokeswoman,  declined to say if he would continue to work at the agency.
