Federal prosecutors are seeking forced medication for a mentally ill man who is charged with leaving an explosive outside a Detroit federal building in 2011.
A Michigan couple lied about having photos of actor John Stamos with cocaine and strippers and tried to bilk the former "Full House" star out of $680,000, a prosecutor said Thursday during closing arguments at the couple's conspiracy trial.
An attorney for actor John Stamos denies the "Full House" and "ER" star had a romantic fling with a 17-year-old girl who six years later is accused of scheming to bilk him of hundreds of thousands of dollars by threatening to sell compromising photos to the tabloids.
A woman charged with conspiring to bilk actor John Stamos of hundreds of thousands of dollars had a brief romantic fling with him when she was a 17-year-old high school student during a spring break trip to Florida in 2004, an attorney said Monday.
"This case would appear to be (serious) enough to justify involuntary medication," Assistant U.S. Attorney Maarten Vermaat said in a court filing.
"I don't think Shakespeare could write a story to set up a fake blackmail scheme to set up a real blackmail scheme. But that is exactly what they did," Assistant U.S. Attorney Maarten Vermaat said in closing arguments.
