Indian American convicted for murder

Jun 22 2013, 5:52am CDT | by

Washington, June 22 (IANS) An Indian American man has been convicted of murder of another Indian American man outside a Sikh temple in the US state of California in 2008.

Washington, June 22 — An Indian American man has been convicted of murder of another Indian American man outside a Sikh temple in the US state of California in 2008.

A jury in Sacramento convicted Gurpreet Singh Gosal, 28, for the second degree murder of Parmjit Pamma Singh outside the Bradshaw gurdwara in Sacramento, California, during a Sikh sports festival Aug 31, 2008.

According to the jurors, Gosal fired a weapon but did not hit anyone.

However, it was his friend, Amandeep Singh Dhami, who shot and killed Singh over a long-running dispute between the two, the Sacramento Bee reported Saturday.

Dhami has reportedly fled to India after the incident with help from friends.

"I think the jury did a good job," deputy district attorney Anthony Ortiz, who had asked the panel for a first-degree conviction on Gosal under an aiding and abetting theory, was quoted as saying.

"The case had some major issues and they worked through them, and I think they came to a just verdict."

According to Rick Fender, a member of the jury, the panel was badly split at the beginning of its deliberations, with the votes ranging from first-degree murder to involuntary manslaughter.

"There was going to have to be some compromise in this case," he said.

Fender said that although an aider or abettor can be considered just as guilty as the actual killer, "there was softness in people's judgment" of Gosal who actually did not shoot anybody.

Gosal's sentencing has been scheduled for Aug 9.

He faces 35 years in prison.

(SACRAMENTO.CBSLOCAL) — Doctors are studying a new disorder related to the dangers of sitting too long at work, and the way it could kill you.

Ex-Lawmaker Sentenced To 90 Days In Jail Leaves After An Hour Thanks To Overcrowding

Nov 4 2014 10:55am CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

California prisons are so overcrowded that one former lawmaker recently sentenced to 90 days in prison was released almost immediately. In January, a Los Angeles jury convicted former state Sen. Roderick Wright (D) on eight felony counts including perjury and voter fraud after prosecutors alleged that Wright had lied about living in the district he represented. (California law requires state legislators to establish "domicile" in their districts.) Wright was later sentenced to 90 days ...
