Man sentenced for raping Hawthorne woman during burglary

first_imgTORRANCE – A man who was linked through DNA testing to the rape of a woman during a burglary at her Hawthorne apartment was sentenced today to 109 years plus two life terms in state prison. Torrance Superior Court Judge Eric Taylor denied the defense’s request for a new trial for Steven Lee Myrick, 41, who was convicted Oct. 2 of rape and residential burglary. Myrick was arrested in March 2006, after DNA test results linked him to the June 18, 2000, attack in which the victim was blindfolded. He had been ordered to submit his DNA after being convicted of “mooning” Los Angeles police officers at a gang rally about two years ago, according to Deputy District Attorney Jodi Link.

They said: “A terrible shadow was cast over our community with the tragic passing of Martina.“She was a light and inspiration and her loss cannot be put into words.You have been a joy to everybody who has had the honour to have known you.“Our deepest condolenses go out to Family,friends and all who were lucky to have passed your way..A sad day for everybody..God bless you.”The brave youngster was a 5th year student at St. Columba’s Comprehensive School before she fell ill and even received the best Junior Cert results in her year. Just a few weeks ago the people of the town came together in a touching displau of community spirit to raise funds for her care.Martina’s brother Michael had worked tirelessly to raise funds and awareness.After the fundraiser in November he said at the time: “Martina is going through a hard time at the moment and she is just trying to concentrate on getting better. She is really touched with the level of support she is receiving. We’ll worry about organising these things so she can just focus on her health. It is great that people will be able to come and enjoy themselves for a good cause.” would like to pass on our condolences to the entire Maguire family circle, friends and entire community in Ardara.Readers can leave comments below: HEARTACHE AS MARTINA, 16, LOSES BRAVE BATTLE AGAINST CANCER was last modified: January 21st, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Ardaramartina maguiretributeslast_img read more

Donegal church group holds walk of contemplation in a busy world

first_imgSt Columba’s Church Conservation Group invites anyone with an interest in local history to join them in a historical walk from Clonmany village to the Old Church, in Straid.The walk, to mark the end of the conservation project, will take place on Saturday, June 9th, the Feast of St Colmcille, the patron saint of the church.The group will gather at 2.30pm at the Parochial Hall in Clonmany, within sight of the white stone which is said to mark the entrance to the ancient monastery at Cluain Maine. We will then walk to The Old Church, stopping to discuss points of local interest along the way. Whether as a scene of quiet contemplation for our more reflective citizens, or as an adventure playground for generations of energetic children, the Old Church is part of the identity of the people of Clonmany Parish and significant to many outside.For some it is a symbol of our troubled political and religious past, for others it stands as testimony to the passage of time, and its potential for healing.The walk may be reminiscent, for older generations, of the religious pilgrimages of old – the ‘turas’ on a saint’s feast day – while for others it will represent a more personal trip down memory lane.Whatever its significance to you, the committee extends a warm welcome to you to come and share your thoughts, and help us celebrate the success of our conservation project. Tea and sandwiches will be available in the Parochial Hall upon our return.Donegal church group holds walk of contemplation in a busy world was last modified: June 4th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Why the Raiders brought back Martavis Bryant

first_imgALAMEDA — Martavis Bryant was a free agent for only 10 days before the same team that waived him brought him back.Jon Gruden said on Sept. 2 that wide receiver Keon Hatcher, who the Raiders waived to make room for Bryant, beat him out on performance alone. That explanation clearly didn’t hold much weight Wednesday, when Gruden switched course to re-add the receiver who has yet to unlock the potential Raiders coaches and players have raved about.Multiple reports indicated Bryant was facing …last_img

Madhya Pradesh set to have indirect Mayor elections

first_imgMadhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tandon has given his assent to an ordinance allowing indirect elections to the posts of Mayor and president of smaller civic bodies. This has put to rest a raging exchange of barbs between the Congress and the BJP over the ordinance which sought to let Councillors instead of the electorate elect Mayors and presidents. With the local body polls round the corner, the BJP had claimed the Congress government pushed for the ordinance as it was chary of a defeat in direct elections and wanted to influence its Councillors. At present, all the Mayors in the 16 Municipal Corporations belong to the BJP. Stating that the State government stood by democratic principles, Chief Minister Kamal Nath informed Mr. Tandon that those who tried to pressure the Governor by discussing the ordinance publicly were expressing their personal views. On Sunday, Congress Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha had tweeted: “Respected Governor, you were and are an able administrator. As per the Constitution, a Governor works on the recommendations of the Cabinet. This is called Raj Dharma. Listen to the Opposition, but don’t stop the Mayor Election Bill. This will set a bad precedent. Just think over it.”A press note from the State government on Tuesday said Mr. Tandon believed passing comments on the discretion of Constitutional posts violated Constitutional principles. The dignity of the Governor was independent and undisputed. Putting direct on indirect pressure on the Governor went against Constitutional principles. Changing tack, Mr. Tankha on Wednesday tweeted; “We welcome the decision of the Governor of Madhya Pradesh to grant assent and promulgate the ordinance for indirect elections of Mayors despite stiff opposition of senior BJP leaders. It reinforces our faith in the majesty of law. Gratifying moment for those who cherish Constitutional values.”last_img read more
