A former assistant prosecutor on Tuesday argued for access to secret grand jury transcripts as he tries to show that he was fired for complaining to superiors who were under pressure from high-ranking state officials, possibly including Gov. Chris Christie.
Ariel Castro, the Ohio suspect indicted on 329 counts of kidnapping and rape for the decade-long imprisonment of three Cleveland-area women, asked a judge on Wednesday if he could visit with the girl he fathered with one of his captives.
The lawsuit also contends Russo told a reporter that Christie would step in and "have this whole thing thrown out."
"I just think that would be inappropriate," said judge Michael Russo, in denying the request, the Daily Mail reported.
