The shooting involved a traffic dispute between Aguila and Rubio. At the time of the shooting, Aguila’s car was blocking traffic, said Doug Herring, the deputy district attorney who prosecuted the case. According to testimony, Rubio was on his way to work and was angered by the delay. He drove around Aguila and yelled a derogatory statement at him. Rubio then opened his car door, and Aguila fired two shots and killed him. Two months later, police, who stopped Aguila for investigation of drunken driving, found a letter in the car that was scrawled with gang signs. “Just about a week ago, I killed someone my first time,” said the letter, which was addressed to Aguila’s friend in New York. “I was by myself, and I hit him twice with two bullets with a .38 special revolver, close, very close range.” NORWALK – A 20-year-old Whittier man who had written a lengthy letter admitting to the death of another man was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in state prison. A jury had convicted Randy Aguila of manslaughter for the shooting of Oscar Rubio, 26, of Whittier, on Sept. 22, 2005 at Godoy Street and Vicki Drive in unincorporated West Whittier. Although state law permits up to a 20-year sentence, Superior Court Judge Dewey Falcone said he handed down the most time he could under a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling limiting the amount of prison time judges can order. “I consider him a danger to others,” Falcone said. “I found no provocation by the victim. \ could have left the scene and not engaged in the shooting.” Rubio’s attorney, Robert Conley, who asked for probation for his client, said he disagreed with Falcone’s sentence. Conley said Aguila was eligible for probation, because he had no prior record. “That said, I understood Judge Falcone felt strongly about the case,” Conley said. “I respect Judge Falcone as a man of great integrity.” During the trial, Conley had argued that Aguila shot Rubio in self-defense. Rubio’s mother, Rosa, declined to comment afterward, but in court said, “\ will be judged by God. It doesn’t matter what happens from now on.” A letter from Rubio’s sister, Debbie, attacking Aguila was read in the courtroom. She stated that her brother had five children, including 7-year-old twin boys, 4-year-old twin girls and a 3-year-old boy who would never see their father again. Their mother is taking medication for depression so she doesn’t break down and cry at work, she stated. “I hope the day when you die, not even the devil will accept you,” she stated.

I was invited to attend a “teach-in” the other evening for one of the organizations planning the celebration of International Workers’ Day, also called “A Day Without Immigrants.” The protest Monday will encourage all immigrants, legal and illegal, to refrain from going to work and school or making any purchases. Looks like the stores will be even more crowded this Sunday. I was asked if I could accompany one of the leaders to Belmont High School, my alma mater, to meet with the administration to get permission to leaflet the campus to advertise the event. I asked the leader, “What will you say when we are asked if we are going to encourage students to skip classes on Monday?” After a few seconds of silent contemplation, he responded that it is important to make a statement that there should be justice for all immigrants. When I pressed him again if that statement includes asking Los Angeles students not to attend school, he said, “Yes, that’s our goal.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl eventMany of those at the meeting started questioning if this was really a good idea. I reminded them of the effect of seeing all the Mexican flags at the March 25 march downtown, and I suggested that promoting truancy might have the same negative effect. We decided that it would be better to encourage the students to stay in school Monday and, at the 3:24 p.m. dismissal, to have a bus parked in front to take anyone who wanted to participate in a march starting at MacArthur Park at 4 p.m. There is a deep division among, and within, organizations planning the Monday protest. Many companies have already notified their employees that if they miss work on Monday, then don’t bother to show up on Tuesday – or any other day. If the message to America is to stress how important immigrant labor is to the country, is it not counterproductive to withhold that labor for the sake of a protest? Some firms are closing down on Monday to support their employees’ desire to participate in something they believe to be important to themselves and their families. The companies simply shifted next week’s work schedule – to be from Tuesday through Saturday. Many schools are allowing their students to come to class the following Saturday in order not to be classified as truant. No word yet if the State Board of Education will dock the Los Angeles Unified School District its average daily attendance funds for Monday absences, even if class time is made up on Saturday. No one believes that a few hours on Saturday will make up for a lost full day of learning. I could be wrong, but I believe that all of these marches and protests have simply galvanized most of America, and especially the African-American population, about the negative aspects of illegal immigration. We’re not just talking about the most visible Hispanics marching in the streets, but also the millions who have overstayed their temporary visas and the almost half-million for whom there are already deportation warrants yet to be executed. When I asked the group if the compromise for obtaining amnesty would include acceptance of a border wall that not even a cockroach could cross, everyone in the room had an excuse why this would be unfair. Other than the obvious “reconquistas,” who don’t recognize such a border, these immigration “rights” leaders have not yet come to the political reality that you can’t have one without the other.

A Letterkenny man wrote bogus cheques for almost €90,000 and used some of the money to go on a luxury holiday to Egypt with his wife.Businessman James McErlane appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court today charged with a number of sample charges of fraud.The court was told that McErlane, of 48 Whitethorn Close, Letterkenny, had three bank accounts with Allied Irish Bank, Permanent TSB and National Irish Banks in Letterkenny. He wrote two cheques – one for €73,536 and another for more than €16,000 and lodged them into the Allied Irish Bank account.He then withdrew various amounts of cash between 2003 and 2008 – 29 in all – to the value of €6,725.84 using a laser card.The money was spent on a wide-range of goods and services including paying insurance, buying groceries and children’s toys.Mr McErlane also spent more than €1,600 with Gallagher’s Travel Agency for a holiday to the sun-kissed resort of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.The accused claimed he was not trying to defraud the AIB out of money and that they had always cleared his cheques.He said he was waiting for a number of investments to come through and they would be worth up to €1 million.His claimed the investments were due to mature in October this year and that he will be able to pay back the AIB the money owed.He stressed that his wife knew nothing about the large cheque lodgements.McErlane admitted to Gardai that he had lodged personal cheques but did not have sufficient funds to cover them.Judge Donagh McDonagh said McErlane was “up to his eyeballs in crime” and said “it must be very cold in Donegal in November.”However he said he would like to see the claims of the investments valued at up to €1 million by the accused.He adjourned the case until Thursday to allow McErlane to bring documentation to show it will mature in October.He also instructed the accused to bring the person with whom he has the investment with to court.DONEGAL MAN LODGED €90,000 IN BOGUS CHEQUES AND WENT ON LUXURY HOLIDAY was last modified: May 1st, 2012 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) Tags:cheque booksfraudJames McErlane

Tyrone and Cavan played out a cracking contest today in the first of the Ulster Semi-finals. Donegal play Monaghan in the other Semi-final this Saturday.In what was a great advert for the competitive Ulster championship, Tyrone and Cavan played out a draw which was a fair result at the end of it.David Givney who tormented the Tyrone full back line today.Tyrone started slow which is very unlike the energetic Tyrone but to Cavan’s credit the breffni men put Tyrone to the sword in the first 15 mins and led 1-3 to 0-2. Tyrone got back into the game well and with points from Ronan O’Neill and Colm Cavanagh, Tyrone were heading into the break two points up until a long direct ball which worked well for Cavan all day was fisted over the line, after the umpires spoke to the ref over their microphones as the ref played on.With the ref awarding the goal he also blew his whistle for half time. Tyrone 0-8 Cavan 2-3.Tyrone rallied after the break and were three up at one stage but the Cavan men never gave up and points from Seanie Johnston and goalkeeper Raymond Gilligan.With normal time up Tyrone were three points up but as the cliché goes ‘it’s never over until it’s over’ and so was the case today when a long direct ball was launched into the Tyrone square and substitute Eugene Keating fisted the ball into the net to make it all square with less than 4 minutes to go in added time. This means Tyrone and Cavan must face each other again to see who they will play in the Ulster final. The other semi-final takes place this coming Saturday when Donegal take on Monaghan in Breffni park.TYRONE & CAVAN DRAW AS DONEGAL PREPARE FOR SEMI-FINAL AGAINST MONAGHAN THIS SATURDAY was last modified: June 19th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:cavamdonegalTyroneUlster Championship
The Twins Towns is to get a new cycle/footbridge over the River Finn between Ballybofey and Stranorlar.Local area Councillor Patrick Mc Gowan has welcomed an update to this weeks Local Area meeting that the TII / Council had appointed Doran consultants to design the project.The new cycle footbridge will be attached to the outside of the existing bridge facing the Sean Mac Cumhaills GAA grounds. The new bridge design is now complete and will be lodged with Donegal County Council planning office straight away .Cllr McGowan has lobbied senior Managment in Donegal County Council and the TII ( NRA) for sometime now and is delight at today’s response .He said the existing footpath on Stranorlar bridge is completely inadequate and are less than a meter in places hence the urgency .“The fact that this is a National Primary road crossing the river Finn between Ballybofey and Strangler servicing one of the busiest routes in the county made this a priority in my opinion. “These path ways are extremely busy with thousands of pedestrians crossing in both directions every week. The commitment from the TII and the Council to bring this project to the planning stage has to be welcomed and I have every confidence that with a favorable planning decision funding will be made available to go to tender and construction .“I wish to thank local roads manager Garrett Doherty and Donegal Co Council TII design office engineer Roger Ryan for bringing this project forward,” said Cllr McGowan.New footbridge to bring the Twin Towns closer together was last modified: November 17th, 2016 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)
