Johnathan Reyes, also known as “Whitey,” 24, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, knew he shouldn’t be fooling with firearms. It is against U.S. law for a felon to possess a firearm or ammunition that has moved in interstate or foreign commerce.
And he is a felon. In February 2007, Reyes was convicted of burglary, reckless endangerment, risk of injury and possessing a pistol without a permit. He served time in prison.
Here’s where it gets interesting. A guy named Ronell Hanks, also known as “Biz” and “Ace,” was arrested and charged with various narcotics and weapons offenses. An Apple iPad was seized from him. On the device were videos showing both Hanks and Reyes taking target practice at a Bridgeport firing range.
Reyes has been detained since his arrest on May 1, 2014. He has pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon. He’s going back to prison for two years.
Mother of two gets 10 years for sex crimes
A woman who said she had sex with her husband in front of her two young daughters for “educational purposes” was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The Texas woman, 29, whose name was withheld to protect her children, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child.
“I did this for educational purposes,” she told police. “What went on in our household is our business.”
One daughter testified that she and her sister were forced to watch their mother and stepfather have sex and were told how to perform sex acts themselves. The stepfather, 34, was sentenced to 99 years in prison.
Women complain about shoe-sniffing man
Four well-heeled women in Pennsylvania have complained to police that a middle-age man accosted them, removed their footwear and sniffed their shoes.
One woman said the man complimented her footwear as she entered an office building elevator and asked if he could hold her shoe. When she refused, he bent down and removed it, then sniffed it “like it was a bouquet of flowers.”
The same day, a 42-year-old woman said a man kicked the back of her heel and knocked off her shoe. After apologizing, he grabbed her shoe and smelled it.
“I lunged at him and said, “Give me my shoe. What do you think you are doing, you weirdo?” she said. The man smiled and left.
Two other incidents were reported, police said.
