State AGs: Adult services should go
HARTFORD | State attorneys general nationwide are demanding that Craigslist remove its adult services section because they say the website cannot adequately block potentially illegal ads.
Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal announced Tuesday that he and colleagues in 16 states have sent a letter calling on the classified advertising site to get rid of its adult services category.
The attorneys general say Craigslist is not completely screening out ads that promote prostitution and child trafficking. The site creators pledged in 2008 to improve their policing efforts.
Other states joining the effort are Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
San Francisco-based Craigslist did not immediately return a call.
Judge: Davis fails to prove innocence
U.S. District Court Judge William T. Moore Jr.’s ruling Tuesday sets the stage for Georgia to resume plans for Davis‘ execution nearly 20 years after a Savannah jury sentenced him to death for the slaying of off-duty Savannah police Officer Mark MacPhail.
In June, Judge Moore heard two days of testimony from witnesses who sought to cast doubt on Davis‘ conviction. Some said they falsely incriminated Davis at his 1991 trial, either out of spite or under pressure from police. Others said they had heard another man confess to being Officer MacPhail’s killer.
Davis plans to appeal the ruling.
