Man admits arson in record-studio fire
PHILADELPHIA | A man has admitted setting fire to the offices of Philadelphia International Records, though his attorney said he was too drunk to remember doing it.
Christopher Cimini pleaded guilty Tuesday to arson and related charges.
The record label was home to Teddy Pendergrass, Patti LaBelle, Lou Rawls and the O’Jays. Owners Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, who helped popularize Philadelphia soul in the 1960s and ‘70s, lost much of their memorabilia in the fire.
Investigators have said Cimini was drunk and likely thought he was somewhere else when he broke into, vandalized and set a fire in the downtown building Feb. 21.
Defense lawyer Gina A. Capuano said Tuesday that Cimini’s blood alcohol content was four times the legal limit for driving. Sentencing is Sept. 10.
Alleged illegals list circulated
SALT LAKE CITY | A list containing the names and personal information of 1,300 illegal immigrants has been mailed across Utah, terrifying the state’s Hispanic community.
Gov. Gary Herbert wrote in a tweet Tuesday that he has asked state agencies to investigate the list — sent anonymously to several media outlets and law enforcement agencies. A letter accompanying the list demands that those on it be deported immediately.
Local advocates are decrying the list, saying whoever sent it is attempting to terrorize Utah’s Hispanic community.
Most of the names on the list are of Hispanic origin. The list also contains personal information such as birth dates, workplaces, Social Security numbers, addresses and phone numbers.
