Republicans pick Charlotte to host 2020 convention

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 16:55

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As Charlotte, North Carolina, celebrates being chosen Friday to host the 2020 Republican National Convention, an undercurrent of concern about the potential for violence runs through the Democratic-leaning city.

The GOP's national committee selected North Carolina's largest city over Las Vegas as hundreds of party activists gathered in Austin, Texas, for the committee's summer meeting.

"The city that I represent has truly established its place on the national stage, and I want to thank you again for the opportunity to showcase our city and showing the world how special we are," said Mayor Vi Lyles, Charlotte's first black female mayor. "We're a growing center of diversity and inclusiveness in the New South, and we're going to show you the true meaning of Southern hospitality."

Under Lyles' predecessor, Jennifer Roberts, Charlotte passed an LGBTQ nondiscrimination ordinance in 2016 that included allowing people to choose whichever bathroom corresponds to their gender identity. The Republican-led General Assembly responded with House Bill 2, which prevented other local governments from passing similar laws and directed transgender people in schools and government buildings to use restrooms and locker rooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates.

A protracted battle marked by corporate pullouts and sports boycotts ended when state lawmakers rolled back the restrictions, but not enough to satisfy LGBTQ advocates.

Lyles led the campaign to bring the convention to Charlotte and said in a newspaper column that it would be a chance for the city to show its inclusiveness. At a public hearing Monday, more than 100 residents spoke for and against the proposed bid. The City Council voted 6-5 to extend the bid, and Lyles emphasized that the vote wasn't an endorsement of President Donald Trump.

"I'm going to call for unity," Lyles said after Monday's vote. "Unity doesn't come easily. It comes with hard work, and we're trying our best to make that happen."

Throughout the city council meeting, opponents of the bid said the convention would put Charlotte residents at risk. Tens of thousands of political activists, protesters and journalists are expected to converge on Charlotte in two years.

"I do not believe that something like '68 is going to happen in Charlotte," said Larry Shaheen, a Charlotte-based Republican consultant, referring to the violence at the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, where Vietnam War protesters fought police in the streets.

Given recent events in the city, he said, it would be wise for Charlotte convention organizers to begin building civic unity now for the event despite political divisions to avoid a spark "fanning into the flame."

The Rev. Amantha Barbee, one of speakers at Monday's meeting, cast a dire view of what lies ahead. Part of her prediction stems from two nights of violent protests in downtown Charlotte after the shooting of a black man by a police officer in 2016.

"You can look at what happened in Charlottesville. You can look at what happened here in Charlotte. You can look at Ferguson," Barber said. "And you can go overseas and see what happened when the president was visiting. I am afraid that people will be hurt or killed, and there's not enough money on the planet to replace someone's life."

Barbee also chastised city leaders, saying the bid was "more of a financial concern versus a community concern."

In North Carolina, Republicans will lavish money and attention on a swing state that backed President Barack Obama in 2008 and Trump in 2016.

The state's African-American community is viewed as particularly influential. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 22 percent of North Carolina's population is black, a higher percentage than any other presidential swing state. The city hosted the Democratic National Convention in 2012.

Las Vegas was a finalist for the GOP convention in 2016 as well. Some Republican leaders feared the city's reputation, and the influence of casino moguls Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn on Republican politics, might cloud the convention's message.

Democrats, meanwhile, have narrowed their 2020 convention choices to Houston, Miami and Milwaukee. Anticipating a crowded and contentious primary battle, they're also planning to move up their convention date to give the party more time to come together before the fall general election.

Police: Ohio man confesses to throwing infant against wall

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 15:47

CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio man who authorities say confessed to fatally throwing an 8-month-old boy against a wall has pleaded not guilty to charges.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports 33-year-old Domynyk Gilliam was arrested Thursday by Colerain Township police. He appeared Friday in court on murder, felonious assault and child endangerment charges. A judge set bond at $450,000.

Court documents say Gilliam confessed to throwing Sémir Brown against a wall and into a crib, causing fatal head injuries Thursday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A police report says Gilliam and his wife were babysitting Sémir, who was the child of Gilliam's wife's cousin and was normally cared for by grandparents.

Court records don't indicate whether Gilliam has an attorney.

Colerain Township is about 20 miles north of Cincinnati.

Graphic, emotional testimony from second woman accusing judge of sexual harassment

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 15:36

The second woman accusing a Franklin County Judge of sexual harassment testified Friday, in graphic, emotional detail.

She took the stand in a disciplinary hearing against Appeals Court Judge Tim Horton.

The woman who testified is not being identified at the request of the court.

She was a legal intern in the summer of 2013 for Judge Tim Horton, who was then at the Franklin County Common Pleas Court.

She says his harassment of her was slow, incremental, and methodical.

"I think it was really a process of grooming me to go along with what he wanted me to do. The conversations about how powerful he was, the impact he could have over people's careers, how important loyalty was."

She says there were comments about her appearance.

"I remember during the Happy Hour he made a comment several times. Something like, 'I like your pants. You know you look good in those pants, don't you.'"
"What was your response?" asked Assistant Disciplinary Counsel Casey Russo.
"I remember just feeling embarrassed."

She says at frequent after-work happy hours, Horton became more aggressive.

"I was getting up to go to bathroom, Judge Horton looked at me and said, 'Walk away slowly.' And so I went to the restroom and when I came back, that's when Judge Horton looked at me and he said I want to (expletive) you in the (expletive)."

In decisions she still struggles to understand, she stayed in contact with Horton months after her internship ended.

That's when they both admit, they had sex.

"Did you want to do that?" asked Russo.
"I consented. I didn't want it."
"Can you explain?"
"I think for all the reasons I said earlier, about why would I go back to this? I felt like I had to do what Judge Horton wanted me to do."

She said on multiple occasions, Horton encouraged his friends to grope her.

"Judge Horton said to this attorney...making comments about my appearance, and then said, 'Touch her (expletive), just touched her (expletive).' I was like, 'No, don't touch me,' but he wouldn't stop. He just kept saying, 'Touch her (expletive), touch her (expletive).' And so the other attorney did."

Horton's attorney questioned whether she was truly a victim.

"You weren't too uncomfortable to contact him. You weren't really offended or harassed enough not to go out with him or even leave after things were said to you," said Rick Brunner.

"I don't think that's true," the woman responded. "I think it's because I was harassed and groomed in this manner that I kept going back. That I didn't feel like I had a choice not to."

Horton denies many of the allegations against him but says the misconduct he does admit to, was the result of an alcohol problem. He says he has since been in treatment for addiction.

Testimony in this hearing will resume in September.

After that, the Board of Professional Conduct will make a recommendation to the Supreme Court.

Depending on their ruling, Horton could be removed from the bench.

Women say they were threatened by man with knife on Olentangy Trail

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 15:07

A woman told Columbus police she and her friend were threatened by a man armed with a knife on the Olentangy Trail.

It happened at around 8 p.m. Tuesday evening near King Avenue. Julie Nemecek said and a friend were riding their bikes when something about the way the man was walking caught her attention.

"[We] got the impression he was having a psychotic episode of some sort," said Nemecek.

As the woman rode their bikes alongside the man, Nemecek said he threatened them with a knife that had a six-inch blade.

"He held it sort of close to his chest," said Nemecek.

She said both women sped away on their bikes and couldn't understand what the man was saying as he yelled after them. Nemecek said she called 911.

She said police took a report and obtained a description of the man, but she said no one searched the trail for the suspect and he remains unidentified.

Nemecek described the man who attacked her as tall and slender with black, wavy hair styled with gel and high cheekbones. She said he was wearing jeans and carrying a backpack and appeared clean cut.

Nemecek said she and her friend got away safely but she's not interested in going back.

"I ride probably five or six days a week. I sometimes commute to work, and I don't want to go on the Olentangy Trail," said Nemecek. "He could have very well killed either of us."

The Columbus Division of Police said overall, reports of crime on the Olentangy trail are low, in part because officers on bicycles often saturate the trail.

"We do have a presence on the trail which keeps some of the problems away," said Sgt. Kevin Corcoran.

However, the Olentangy Trail is not immune from crime.

In February of 2017, a teenager told police she was jogging on the trail near Whetstone Park when she said a man grabbed her and tried to pull her into the bushes.

In April of 2015, a woman told police a man exposed himself to her on the trail behind Tuttle Park.

Nemecek said she wanted to share her story to encourage joggers and bikers to be on the lookout and avoid becoming a victim.

Sgt. Corcoran said it's safest to utilize the trail during daylight hours and said you should always try to jog or bike with a friend or group of people. He said it's important to trust your instinct and call police if you feel threatened.

Officers on a bicycle, or even in cruisers, can reach you on the trail in minutes in the event of an emergency,

Card skimmer discovered at ATM in Westerville

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 14:39

Police are investigating after a card skimmer was discovered on an ATM at in Westerville on July 13.

Skimmers are electronic devices placed directly over an ATM card reader slot to illegally record personal data and personal identification numbers.

The device was placed on an ATM at a CVS Pharmacy on Cleveland Ave., according to the Westerville Division of Police.

Anyone who may have used the ATM at this location is urged to check their accounts and report any suspicious withdrawals or transactions.

FBI tips on how to avoid being skimmed:

  • Inspect the ATM, gas pump, or credit card reader before using it…be suspicious if you see anything loose, crooked, or damaged, or if you notice scratches or adhesive/tape residue.
  • When entering your PIN, block the keypad with your other hand to prevent possible hidden cameras from recording your number.
  • If possible, use an ATM at an inside location (less access for criminals to install skimmers).
  • Be careful of ATMs in tourist areas…they are a popular target of skimmers.
  • If your card isn’t returned after the transaction or after hitting “cancel,” immediately contact the financial institution that issued the card.

Report: Trump was taped talking of paying Playboy model

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 13:46

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer secretly recorded Trump discussing a possible payment to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with him, a person familiar with an investigation into the attorney told The Associated Press on Friday.

The president's current personal lawyer confirmed the conversation and said it showed Trump did nothing wrong, according to The New York Times, which first reported on the recording.

The FBI has the recording, which lawyer Michael Cohen made two months before Trump's 2016 election, according to the person who spoke to the AP. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing inquiry, said the payment was never made.

The FBI raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room in April amid an investigation into his business dealings, including any information on payments made in 2016 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal. She says she had an affair with Trump in 2006. He denies it.

The Wall Street Journal revealed, days before the election, that the National Enquirer — run by Trump supporter David Pecker — had paid $150,000 to silence McDougal. At the time, Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said, "We have no knowledge of any of this."

The Washington Post, citing a person familiar with the recording, said Friday the recording captured Trump and Cohen discussing an effort the attorney planned to make to buy the rights to McDougal's story for roughly $150,000 from the Enquirer's parent company, American Media Inc.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times the Republican president did discuss the payments to McDougal with Cohen on the less than two-minute-long recording, but that the payment was never made.

Giuliani says Trump told Cohen that if he did make a payment, to do it by check so it could be documented.

"Nothing in that conversation suggests that he had any knowledge of it in advance," Giuliani told the newspaper. "In the big scheme of things, it's powerful exculpatory evidence."

Giuliani and Cohen haven't immediately responded to messages from The Associated Press. Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis declined to comment to the Times.

McDougal's lawyer, Peter Stris, did not immediately respond to a message.

Cohen, a self-described fixer for Trump for more than a decade, said last year that he "would take a bullet" for Trump. But Cohen told an interviewer earlier this month that he now puts "family and country first" and won't let anyone paint him as "a villain of this story."

Hours before the Times published its story, Cohen met in New York Friday morning with the Rev. Al Sharpton, a frequent critic of Trump.

Cohen and Sharpton said in tweets they have known each other for 20 years. Cohen contacted the civil rights activist in recent weeks, longtime Sharpton spokeswoman Rachel Noerdlinger said.

She said the two revisited conversations they'd had over the years when Cohen was Sharpton's conduit to Trump during clashes over race issues and over Trump's years of questioning the authenticity of former President Barack Obama's birth certificate.

Cohen tweeted there's "no one better to talk to!" than Sharpton, who used his own Twitter account to advise readers: "Stay tuned."

Shark tooth found in leg of boy attacked off New York's Fire Island

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 13:20

Officials have confirmed one of two children bitten in the leg off New York's Fire Island was bitten by a shark. The state Department of Environmental Conservation says a tooth fragment removed from a 13-year-old boy's leg is consistent with a shark's tooth, but it could not determine what species of shark due to the tooth's condition.

Officials could not confirm Thursday if the fish that bit a 12-year-old girl a few minutes before the boy at Sailors Haven beach was also a shark. But Lola Pollina told CBS News there's little doubt the creature that chomped on her leg was a shark.

"It was a 10-inch orangey body and then there was a fin and then I got out, and my leg was bloody," Lola said. "We went to the lifeguards, we ran up to them and they kind of bandaged it."

Both children were bitten Wednesday, prompting officials to temporarily close the beaches.

The children are expected to fully recover.

The state Parks Department is extending lifeguard coverage until 8 p.m. Friday, and drones will be deployed to monitor the waters.

Officials call these incidents incredible rare but say summer is shark mating season and anything is possible, CBS New York reports.

"Sharks are afraid of humans. They do not want to be near humans. They are part of the natural environment," said State Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos. "We just urge anyone at the beach to be aware, be smart."

"If there was other food fish in the area where these kids were swimming, especially if they were younger ones, they are learning, they are inquisitive, and they may have just come up and just sampled and said, 'oh no, no thank you,' and then swam off," Joseph Yaiullo, curator at the Long Island Aquarium, said.

"Avoid usually like mornings, dawn and dusk periods where the light is low. Sharks will often feed during that time as well," he added.

Woman gives birth in Chick-fil-A bathroom, baby gets perks

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 12:17

Falon and Robert Griffin were eagerly anticipating the arrival of their new baby as they drove to San Antonio's University Hospital earlier this week. But before they could get there, Falon said she needed to make a pit stop. At 38 weeks pregnant, she was desperate for a bathroom. They spotted a Chick-fil-A and pulled over. What happened next proves that the best-laid plans often go awry.

"Chick-fil-A was closed, it was way past 10," Robert told CBS affiliate KENS. "We were able to bang on the door because she kept saying she kept saying she had to go to the bathroom."

"And I was very insistent," Falon added with a laugh. Even though the employees were closing up, they let her inside. The Chick-fil-A bathroom break soon turned into an emergency. The couple's baby, a little girl they named Gracelyn, wasn't going to give them time to get to the hospital.

"I realized, oh my gosh, this is happening, I'm going to give birth in a Chick-fil-A bathroom!" she told the station.

Her husband was there to help. "I can see just the top of Gracelyn's head, just barely crowning, but I knew we couldn't go anywhere," Robert said. "So I told her, 'Sweetie, we're gonna do something great, and we're gonna do it right here and we're gonna do it right now.'"

The Chick-fil-A employees said they heard the screams coming from the bathroom and jumped into action. "I was like, 'OK, this is serious. This is happening.' And I got on the phone with a 911 dispatcher," Brenda Enriquez said.

As the restaurant's drive-thru director says she's used to delivering orders — but not deliveries like this. The 911 dispatcher asked her questions about the baby and if it was crying, and Brenda kept cool her under pressure to provide answers.

Meanwhile, Robert handled the delivery and dealt with some scary obstacles. Gracelyn's umbilical cord was wrapped twice around her neck. Robert managed to unwrap the cord, and his daughter took her first breath inside the Chick-fil-A.

The couple estimates the whole thing took about six minutes.

Robert shared the amazing birth story on Facebook and it quickly gained widespread attention. "Paramedics arrived 15 minutes later so we kept her warm by having the chick fil a staff warm up white towels in the kitchen and keep bringing them to us," the new dad wrote. "For all the chaos, we all did amazing. Cut the chord while still in the bathroom, kept Gracie stable and mom calm, and it all worked out....not as planned, but everyone's healthy."

The expecting parents couldn't have expected this, but once Gracelyn was safe in their arms, they didn't seem to mind the way things worked out.

"Thinks it's pretty ironic that a proud conservative, Christian family would have a baby in a Chick-Fil-A, and wrapped in a Trump 2020 T-shirt! BOOM," Robert wrote.

The fast-food joint will always be a part of her because it says so right on her birth certificate. "Her birth certificate reads 'Born in Chick-fil-A' and the hospital had me sign the birth certificate as the attending physician," Robert's Facebook post reads.

The Chick-fil-A outlet also gave Gracelyn another kind of certificate, one that promises her a job when she turns 16 years old.

And not only that — the family told KENS the restaurant gifted her free Chick-fil-A food for life.

Chick-fil-A Inc.'s corporate office confirmed to CBS News that the baby was born at one of its locations, but declined to provide additional details. "Chick-fil-A restaurants are all locally owned and operated. The offer [of free food and a job] came directly from the local operator of the local restaurant and not Chick-fil-A, Inc.," the company said.

Two deaths and video of a close call bring new attention to kids in hot cars

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 11:52

Children and Texas and Connecticut died from overheating in vehicles Thursday. Those deaths and widely-viewed video of a baby being rescued from inside a hot car in Florida this week is drawing new attention to the problem.

Sheriff's deputies in Volusia County, Florida, received a 911 call from Jessica Kaiser Tuesday after she spotted a child alone in a parked car. The sheriff's office released body cam video of the rescue.

"Jessica Kaiser saw a Nissan Rogue with what they thought was a doll in the back seat," Volusia County sheriff Mike Chitwood said. "Well, that doll turned out to be an 8-month-old child."

The child's mother returned 24 minutes after the call. She told investigators she thought she had dropped her child at her father's house. She is now charged with child neglect.

Susan Auriemma, vice president of the advocacy group KidsAndCars.org, says it's not uncommon for parents to lose track of their kids in the car.

"We've seen scenarios so many times where parents believed they dropped off at daycare," Auriemma said. "And, in fact, they continued straight on to work and the child was left alone in the vehicle the entire day."

The group says 27 children have been killed this year from heatstroke, compared to 43 last year. The national yearly average is 37.

"It's a mistake to think it can't happen to you and not take measures to prevent children from being left alone in a vehicle," Auriemma said.

The Centers for Disease Control says the temperature inside a parked car can rise by 20 degrees after ten minutes in the sun, even with a cracked window.

Police are calling on people to be vigilant and as always, if they see something, say something.

"Had Jessica Kaiser not come out and been observant like that, we would have been discussing a tragedy of an 8-month-old child," Chitwood said.

Ohio State: 100 ex-students report sex misconduct by doctor

Channel 10 news - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 11:16

COLUMBUS, Ohio — More than 100​ former students have provided firsthand accounts of sexual misconduct ​by the now-dead Ohio State University team physician at the center of an ongoing investigation, the university said on Friday.

Over 200 former students and university employees have been interviewed by independent investigators reviewing allegations against Richard Strauss involving male athletes from 14 sports as well as his work at the student health center and his off-campus medical office, University President Michael Drake said.

"We are grateful to those who have come forward and remain deeply concerned for anyone who may have been affected by Dr. Strauss' actions," Drake said. "We remain steadfastly committed to uncovering the truth."

Ohio State has urged anyone with information to contact the investigators from Seattle-based law firm Perkins Coie, who are looking into the allegations, what university officials knew and how they responded to any concerns about Strauss.

The university said investigators plan 100 or more additional interviews. Those interviewed include Republican U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, who denies some wrestlers' claims that he knew about abuse when he was an assistant coach at Ohio State.

Former athletes say they verbally raised concerns about Strauss as early as 1978, near the start of his two decades at the university.

Ohio State has a record of at least one documented complaint against Strauss. Paperwork from 1995 shows the then-director of the student health center said a student's complaint about being inappropriately touched by Strauss during an exam was the first such complaint he'd received.

The documentation that ex-student Steve Snyder-Hill obtained from Ohio State this week shows he complained about Strauss by phone — not by letter, as he'd recalled — and got a letter back from the director, Ted Grace.

Grace now leads student health services at Southern Illinois University. He declined to comment through a spokeswoman there.
