NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

EXCLUSIVE: An attorney for Mark Houck, a Catholic pro-life activist from Pennsylvania, condemned the recent FBI arrest of his client as an abuse of power from President Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) intended to send an intimidating message to pro-life Americans.

Paul Pogba’s brother detained over alleged extortion, says lawyer

According to Mathias’ lawyer Yassine Bouzrou, Mathias Pogba, 32, has been in prison since Saturday night.

“We will challenge this decision and ask for him to be released,” Bouzrou told CNN on Sunday.

Attorney Steve Kelly says the family of murder victim Hae Min Lee felt betrayed by the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office’s decision to spring Syed — who spent some two decades in prison for allegedly strangling the teen before a podcast highlighted problems with his case.

“Whether or not Adnan is guilty is beside the point,” Kelly said in an interview on CNN.

“This is what they have been told for decades upon decades. And the issue is nobody wants to find out who killed Hae more than her brother and her mom. What happened yesterday … they were completely excluded from the process. This is a preordained agreement between the state’s

Judge denies last-minute request for new lawyer in Doug Jensen’s case, jury selection continues

The Des Moines man seen at the front of a group of rioters inside the United States Capitol asked a federal judge for a new defense team. The request came from Jensen before jury selection started Monday morning, stating he and his lawyer disagreed on certain things over time.Jensen also said that he had only seen three videos in his discovery for the case: his interview with the FBI and two videos of him inside. He told Judge Timothy Kelly he had another defense attorney that was willing to take the case. Kelly sealed the court and spoke to Jensen and his current counsel in private. He then denied the request, saying it would have delayed the trial due to a new potential counsel not reviewing the entire case for a long period of time. He also said the case trial date had been set since February, and there was …
