Former Broome County District Attorney talks involvement in CBS’ 48 Hours episode on Haley Anderson’s murder

first_img“I wanted to fight for Haley and her family and all of the Binghamton University students,” Cornwell said. “I promised them that I would do everything I could.” But now that the trial, case and piece are over, Cornwell knows there’s work to be done. “Just seeing the sneak peak that they put out convinced me that everything I did was worth it,” Cornwell said about the episode. “I think it’ll be emotional for anyone who is watching it.” Fellow Binghamton University student Orlando Tercero was found guilty in her murder. Anderson was a Binghamton University student killed in March 2018. “It was important to document that story because the family wanted to do that and I was just glad to be part of it,” Cornwell said. (WBNG) — Former Broome County District Attorney Steve Cornwell spoke Saturday on his participation in CBS’ 48 Hours episode on the murder of Haley Anderson. “It was a way to expose domestic violence relationships in college,” Cornwell said. “I want to raise awareness about domestic violence, hopefully use it to educate and teach people how to get help, if there is a way to get help, do it. I just hope people understand the purpose of this was for the right reasons.” After Tercero was found guilty in Anderson’s murder and sentenced to 30 years in prison, Cornwell said, “[It was] a big weight was lifted off my shoulders to tell you the truth,” continuing, “My job was to fight for and protect families of Broome County.” “Hardest thing you can do as an attorney, or a D-A or a prosecutor is to watch somebody try your case,” he said. Cornwell was Broome County’s district attorney at the time, and told 12 News he spent two years on the case and trial, fighting for justice for Haley and her loved ones. The CBS 48 Hours episode on the murder of Haley Anderson airs Saturday April 25 at 10 p.m. With Tercero tried in a Nicaraguan court outside of Cornwell’s jurisdiction, he explained there was a bit of frustration. He said his role quickly became the “second chair,” in charge of assisting the Nicaraguan courts in any way he could. Cornwell said he was only going to participate in the piece if the Anderson family was comfortable doing it. So, when everyone agreed to be a part of it, he knew this was big opportunity.last_img read more

State Continues to Monitor Forecast of Heavy Rains, Flash Flooding

first_img Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today said that state agencies continue to monitor the forecast for scattered strong storms that could bring significant amounts of rain and flooding in isolated areas across southcentral, northcentral, and eastern Pennsylvania through late Wednesday.“The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and local emergency management agencies are in constant contact and keeping me apprised of the consequences of the heavy rain, such as flash flooding and road closures,” Gov. Wolf. “Safety is always my number one goal and state and local emergency officials are doing all that they can to ensure Pennsylvanians are informed, aware, and safe.”Specifically, the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs is working with Schuylkill County officials in response to a request for four high clearance vehicles to assist with flooding in the county. Personnel with the PA Helicopter Aquatic Rescue Team are on ready status for the next 36-48 hours. The teams are based in Johnstown and Ft. Indiantown Gap.Pennsylvanians are encouraged to follow ReadyPA on Twitter @ReadyPA and Facebook for the latest on the weather and how to prepare, and motorists can check road conditions on over 40,000 miles of roadway at 511PA.com.PennDOT cautions motorists to remember to never drive through flooded roadways, as it takes just two feet of fast-moving water to float a car. Anyone who drives around barriers intended to close a road can face increased penalties if emergency responders are called to rescue motorists who disregard traffic control signs.

Mike Hosking: We’re being played for fools over the weed vote

first_imgNZ Herald 18 June 2020Family First Comment: “All such agencies should be explicitly prevented from taking the sort of stance that the (Drug) foundation has. The fact they are not prevented from this activity drags the main funder of the group – the Government – into play and stretches the idea of their neutrality. The fact that the Government raised the issue, initiated the vote and allegedly quite independently then have one of the agencies they heavily fund backing the change is asking a lot of us in terms of believing their transparency and credibility. And what makes it even more insidious is that the foundation have used their platform to raise money.”Yep.COMMENT: I view it as a very good sign that the Drug Foundation tried to slip the old medicinal line into their advertising.It’s the line that’s led to dozens of complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority.It’s the line that had Dr Kate Baddock of the Medical Association saying it’s rubbish, it’s completely misleading.It’s the line that had the academic Bill Hodge saying it’s misleading and deceptive.It is indeed.Why did they do it? Because they are scared, they are scared the polls haven’t gone the way they would have hoped, they are scared this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get things legally sorted the way they would like, and they are scared they are going to lose.The question is not really whether it’s misleading. I will be astonished if the authority doesn’t rule against them. The question is – is it too late?Wheels turn slowly at authorities who gather to review rules.By the time they meet, debate, decide and release their findings, it may well be too late. The deed might have had the desired affect – to suck in the vulnerable.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12340362last_img read more
