Previous articleECTOR COUNTY FELONY DISPOSITIONS: April 1, 2019Next articleClemson wins 4th straight, holds Wake Forest to 39 points Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApp Workers staff the control room in the Ector County Youth Center. A new location is proposed for the Ector County Youth Center that would move the facility closer to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center. With support from the Commissioners’ Court, youth center officials met with architects Thursday to discuss operational needs and design ideas for a new facility. Ector County Juvenile Probation Director Kevin Mann said they hope to have the final concept submitted by mid-May. Mann said problems at the Ector County Youth Center are piling up as the dated facility is stretched to its limits. The 45-year-old youth center struggles to accommodate the county’s increased juvenile population, which is driving intake numbers beyond capacity levels, and facility officials suggest an overhaul is the only option going forward. “It is a concern and an issue that we have got to address as a community,” Ector County Judge Debi Hays said. Mann said the growing juvenile population and the influx of the people coming into the community have contributed to rising referral rates and put the facility in a tough position. Referrals indicate the number of youth that are admitted to the juvenile facility for allegedly committing a criminal act. Ector County has seen a 23 percent increase in overall referrals and a 67 percent increase in felony Jones said aggravated assault and robbery are becoming more common and trending upward especially for female offenders com- On Tuesday, only one bed remained available in the pre-adjudicated hallway. Mann said if two people came in needing to be detained then staff would have to swap one juvenile out and release them back to the community to accommodate the new arrival. “It’s our obligation to keep that kid and remove them from the streets,” Mann said. “A lot of times we can’t do that.” He said having closer to 40-48 beds for those that are pre-adjudicated would be ideal. Mann’s main concern is that the facility is running out of time to modify infrastructure and correct the issues that plague the youth center. He addressed the Commissioners’ Court on March 7 to get the ball rolling before a legislative bill potentially changes the state’s criminal justice system by raising the age of criminal responsibility from 17 to 18. Mann said the legislation is a game changer that could transfer about 275 17 year olds from the Ector County Detention Center to his facility. “The worry is if we don’t get a new facility and raise the age happens, the only way we can absorb that population is to end long-term care,” Mann said. “They still need to be placed at the end of the day and so that means we’re contracting out. It will be just like the sheriff’s office but at a higher cost because our kids are going to cost $150-$200 a day.” The youth center’s director said attending to more and more high-risk juveniles with substance abuse problems, mental health issues or a history of traumatic experiences requires a facility conducive to rehabilitation. “There’s nothing you can do here,” Mann said. “It would be like running a car that’s hit 300,000 miles through a car wash and saying there’s a new car. At the end of the day that’s an old car with an old engine that’s out of date. You can’t add on and you can’t change the layout.” He stood with Jones Tuesday in the building’s epicenter for education: the lunch room. Mann said every room must serve as a multi-purpose room due to space restrictions. The dining area had a strong scent of cleaning products in the air and the sound of staff washing dishes echoed in the background. “How can you sit here and learn when you’re smelling bleach,” Mann said. “These are all things that can be fixed with a different facility and a different design.” Jones said modern detention standards have shifted more toward intervention and rehabilitation programming, which includes having detainees out of their rooms for 10 hours of the day. The facility was not built with that in mind during the 70s. “This is where we have to make a change,” Jones said. “If we don’t then we’re going to tie up the adult system with these same kids.” Mann said issues are at every level in the facility from design, function, maintenance, to safety and security. This week more Band-Aids were placed throughout the facility as crews worked to address plumbing issues and raise an exterior 12-foot wall where two teenage detainees previously escaped in February due to weak spots in the infrastructure’s design. “Ultimately it’s going to come down to Commissioner’s Court,” Mann said. “What do they want for their community, how do they value rehabilitation and how do they value public safety?” Twitter Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 TAGS Facebook Twitter Pinterest Youth Center proposes relocating facility Local News WhatsApp Pinterest

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Two mass shootings in the span of 14 hours over the weekend have left at least 29 victims dead.The two shootings, first in El Paso, Texas, and then in Dayton, Ohio, are the latest instances of deadly mass shootings in 2019, bringing the total number of such incidents up to at least 17 — an average of one every 12.7 days this year.The FBI doesn’t have an official definition of a mass shooting, but defines a mass killing as an incident in which three or more people, not including the suspect, are killed. Various groups and watchdog organizations keep their own lists, often using different criteria for what qualifies as a mass shooting. The Gun Violence Archive, for example, counts mass shootings as incidents in which four or more people were shot or killed, and by this criteria, Dayton is the 251st mass shooting this year.For the list compiled by ABC News below, the incidents took place over the course of a day and involved four or more victims, not including the suspect, who died as a result of gunshot wounds. For instance, shooting sprees that spanned longer amounts of time were not included on this list.Of the 17 deadly mass shootings that occurred so far in 2019, the first 10 took place through May. At that point, even though there had been more such incidents in the first five months of 2019 than in the same period in 2018, the number of fatalities was exactly the same: 51 victims killed.Now, two months later and more than halfway through the year, the total number of victims has risen to 102 total victim fatalities.1. Jan. 23: Shooting at a Florida bank, 5 victimsFive people were killed when a gunman opened fire in a SunTrust Bank in Sebring, Florida, police said.The 21-year-old suspect, Zephan Xaver, barricaded himself inside before later surrendering to authorities, police said.“I have shot five people,” Xaver allegedly told 911 dispatchers, according to a joint statement released by the Highland County Sheriff’s Office and Sebring Police Department.Xaver had been hired by Avon Park Correctional Institution on Nov. 2 and was training to be a correctional officer when he resigned on Jan. 9, according to the Florida Department of Corrections. Xaver had no disciplinary incidents while employed with the department.2. Jan. 24: Shooting in Georgia before suspect flees the state, 4 victimsAfter allegedly shooting three people at two scenes in Rockmart, Georgia, a suspect was later found and taken into custody in Indiana.At the first scene, 27-year-old suspect Daylon Delon Gamble allegedly shot three people, two of whom died, and then went to another scene and shot and killed two others, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.3. Jan. 26: Domestic violence incident in Louisiana, 5 victimsAn “armed and dangerous” 21-year-old man from Louisiana who allegedly fatally shot his parents, girlfriend, her father and her brother, was captured outside his grandmother’s house in Virginia, authorities said.Dakota Theriot was wanted on multiple counts of first-degree murder, home invasion and weapons charges stemming from a killing spree that began in Livingston Parish, Louisiana — just east of the state capital, Baton Rouge — and continued at his parents’ trailer in Ascension Parish.“He was very sleep deprived,” Richmond County Sheriff Steve Smith told ABC News. “Once put in our booking room, he went straight to sleep… he seemed a little disoriented.”4. Feb. 3: Palm Springs, California: 4 victimsA suspect was apprehended days after the shooting deaths of three teenagers and a man in the Palm Springs area.The Desert Sun newspaper published a timeline surrounding the shootings, which states that at least two of the victims had been talking about a robbery plot earlier in the day of the shooting, and then they and a friend were found dead later at a trail, with the 4th victim found later on that day.5. Feb. 11: Domestic incident involving a child victim in Texas, 4 victimsA 15-month-old girl, the child’s parents and the child’s grandparents were all found dead on a property in Polk County.“This is a horrible, horrific scene – a horrible, horrific crime,” Polk County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Byron Lyons said in a news conference at the time, as ABC affiliate KTRK reported.The toddler, Ranley Horn, was found outside near her mother Ashley Horn, 27, and Ashley’s grandmother, Linda Delaney, 72.Inside the home, investigators found Linda’s husband Carlos Danley, 74, and Randy Horn, 54, who is also a relative.No suspect was ever arrested, though the sheriff’s office confirmed that they are not actively looking for a suspect, implying but not directly stating that the case was considered a murder-suicide. It is not immediately clear and has not been released publicly who investigators believe was the suspect in the shooting.6. Feb. 15: Shooting at a manufacturing plant in Illinois: 5 victimsFive victims were killed and five police officers were injured by gunfire in Aurora, Illinois, when an apparently disgruntled employee at an industrial warehouse opened fire after being told he was being fired from the job where he had worked for 15 years, according to authorities.The gunman, identified as Gary Martin, 45, was killed by responding police officers, according to Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman.The shooting unfolded at the Henry Pratt Company in Aurora, a town about 40 miles west of Chicago.7. Feb. 16: Mississippi hostage situation turns deadly, 4 victimsPolice used a battering ram to force themselves into a home in Clinton, Mississippi, after responding to a call about a domestic disturbance, The Associated Press reported.When they entered the home, police found four dead victims and the suspect, Nam Le, wounded. The suspect later died after being transported to a local hospital.Le fired upon officers when they arrived at the home, leading to a standoff. The AP reported that two small children were released unharmed from the home during the standoff, and the relationship between the suspect and his victims, who ranged in age from 28 years old to 65 years old, was not immediately released.8. April 28: Shooting in Ohio, 4 victimsFour relatives were found shot dead inside an apartment in West Chester, Ohio. The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, but police have told local reporters that it is being classified as a homicide.The victims were identified by police as the apartment owners Hakiakat Singh Pannag, 59, his wife Parmjit Kaur, 62, their daughter Shalinderkit Kaur, 39, and Parmjit Kaur’s sister Amarjit Kaur, 58, according to The Journal-News.Police responded to the scene after receiving a call from Shalinderkit Kaur’s husband, Gurpeet Singh, who called 911 after finding the bloody scene, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.9. May 13: Shooting in Missouri, 4 victimsA brawl inside a St. Louis home reportedly led to a gun battle where five victims in their 20s and 30s were shot, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.Of those, three victims were found dead at the scene and the fourth died later as a result of their injuries, the newspaper reported.Initial reports suggested that the four deceased men were related.The home where the shooting occurred is reportedly in a part of town called Hayden’s Rectangle, which the newspaper said is an area that has been the focus of crime fighting efforts in the past.10. May 31: Workplace shooting in Virginia Beach, 12 victimsThe shooting at a municipal building in Virginia Beach was the deadliest of the year in 2019, with 12 victims meeting their end.The specific motive of the suspect, who was believed to be a disgruntled employee, remains unknown at this time as police continue to investigate the shooting.The suspect, DeWayne Craddock, allegedly used two .45-caliber pistols in the rampage and law enforcement officials reported that both guns were purchased legally by the suspect.11. June 8: Apparent robbery turned deadly on tribal lands in Washington, 5 victimsThe shooting took place on the Native American Yakama Indian Reservation in central Washington and a motive was not immediately clear, according to local newspaper The Spokesman-Review. Two suspects, both of whom were members of the Confederated Bands and Tribes of the Yakama Nation, were named and charged in the shootings.The Spokesman-Review details how the pair shot and killed four people at one property as part of an apparent robbery and a fifth victim was found in a car that the pair had stolen to escape.12. June 23: Man fatally shoots relatives and others in San Jose, 4 victimsPolice investigated a quadruple murder-suicide in San Jose after a man fatally shot three women and a man before killing himself.The San Jose Mercury News reported that police believed the shooting was tied to a family conflicts.A neighbor of the shooter, 66, said that the suspect’s wife jumped the fence from their home and ran into the neighbor’s home.13. July 6: Shooting at an apartment building in St Louis, 5 victimsFive people were found shot dead in a St. Louis apartment building and the motive and suspect were not immediately clear.The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that a sixth person was with the group on Friday night before leaving, and when that person returned at around noon on Saturday, they found the group fatally shot.The victims range in age between 37 and 65 years old, the paper reported.14. July 25, Los Angeles shooting spree: 4 victimsA man was apprehended in connection to a shooting spree that left four dead over the course of a day in California’s San Fernando Valley.The shooter allegedly fatally shot his father and brother and injured his mother, before going to a nearby gas station where he fatally shot a female acquaintance and injured a man.The fourth fatality came several hours later when the suspect allegedly fatally shot a person on the public bus.The motive was not immediately clear but sources have suggested that the suspect had prior issues with his family.15. July 28, Shooting incident with two scenes in Wisconsin: 4 victimsA 911 call led officials from the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department to a residence where they found two dead adults who had been killed as a result of gunshot wounds.Officials then went to the residence of one of those two victims, where they found three other victims. Law enforcement officials have ruled that the scene with three vicitms was a homicide scene, and the other scene was a murder-homicide. There was a total of five fatalities, but authorities believe that one was that of the perpetrator, though they did not immediately release the names or ages of those involved.The sheriff sent out a press release the day after the discovery of the bodies and said that the public was not in harm’s way.16. Aug. 3, Shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas: 20 victimsThe suspect who opened fire at an El Paso Walmart was identified by authorities as Patrick Crusius, 21, of Allen, Texas, and he was “taken into custody without incident” and without any law enforcement officers firing their weapons, according to El Paso Police Department Sgt. Robert Gomez. He later told investigators he wanted to shoot as many Mexicans as possible, two law enforcement officials told ABC News.Wounded victims ranged in age from 2 to 82.Officials also said an assault-style rifle, similar to an AK-47, was secured at the scene along with several magazines.El Paso police chief Greg Allen said during a news conference Saturday night that at least 20 people had died and 26 more had been injured. Allen said authorities are examining what he called a “manifesto” that they believe was written by the shooter and shows a possible “nexus” to a hate crime.17. Aug. 4, Dayton shooting: 9 victims The second mass shooting in a span of less than 14 hours, at least nine people were killed and more than two dozen were wounded early on Sunday after a suspect opened fire in downtown Dayton, Ohio, according to police.The suspected shooter was shot and killed by responding officers “in less than a minute” after opening fire, Mayor Nan Whaley said at a Sunday morning press conference. Police said they were only aware of one shooter.Authorities responded quickly to the shooting, first reported at 1 a.m., and said police are regularly present in the crowded district popular with tourists and locals.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Home » News » Rent guarantee agency kicked out of TPO over £6,374 unpaid award previous nextRegulation & LawRent guarantee agency kicked out of TPO over £6,374 unpaid awardCase highlights the problems for landlords, agents and tenants when rent guarantee contracts go wrong.Nigel Lewis26th August 202001,210 Views Rent guarantee specialist The London Landlord has been expelled from TPO after refusing to pay an outstanding award of £6,374 and also failing to pay its membership renewal fees.The award came after TPO received a complaint from a landlord who let his property under a guaranteed rent contract to the agency, which then sub-let the property to a tenant.Following an issue with damp in the property, an argument arose between landlord and agent over where the damp camp from – tenant’s actions or a roof leak – and the issue went unresolved.Suspended paymentsThe agency suspended payments of guaranteed rent on the basis that the landlord was in breach of his repairing agreements.But TPO concluded that rent repayments should not have been stopped because the freeholder, not the landlord, was responsible for the roof and that any damp caused by the tenant was the agent’s responsibility.An award was made of £5,874 for unpaid guaranteed rent and £500 for aggravation, distress and inconvenience, totalling £6,374.The London Landlord failed to pay the award or its TPO renewal fees and has now been ejected.Its website is live but doesn’t feature any properties but the firm is still active according to Companies House, and TPO has not been able to confirm it has redress elsewhere, so it may be trading illegally. The firm has been referred to Trading Standards.Three agents have been expelled from TPO for non-payment of much lesser awards ranging from £140 to £700 for both sales and lettings service failures. These are Foremost Lettings in St Leonards-on-Sea, Hawksley Pearce in Chelmsford and Leftmove Estate Agents in Blackpool.Read more about rent guarantee contracts.The Property Ombudsman Scheme The London Landlord The London Landlord expulsion TPO August 26, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

View post tag: Navy View post tag: Homeport Industry news Back to overview,Home naval-today VIDEO: PCU Arlington Docks in Norfolk Homeport for First Time View post tag: Naval View post tag: Norfolk View post tag: docks View post tag: time Precommissioning Unit Arlington (LPD 24) arrived in her Norfolk homeport March 22, in advance of an April 6, commissioning.A special salute by more than 30 Arlington County, Va., and Pentagon first responders welcomed the crew of the multi-mission, amphibious ship as she pulled in pierside.Alongside Sailors’ family and friends were members of the ship’s namesake Police Department, Fire Department and other emergency services personnel who were the initial responders at the Pentagon immediately following the 9-11 attack.The ship was named in remembrance of the 184 heroes and victims who died that morning in Arlington. “I look forward to boarding the ship I have heard so much about and knowing what it represents,” said Arlington County Police Department Capt. Kevin Reardon, also a member of the commissioning committee.Arlington crewmembers met Reardon and other first responders at the ship’s christening two years ago and again during the 10th anniversary of 9-11 in Washington, D.C. After pulling in, they welcomed these heroes aboard, to see their new ship. “The first responders have been tremendously supportive throughout the last two years,” said the ship’s Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Darren Nelson. “To be able to present to them their ship is an awesome occasion. For many Sailors, this is a very emotional event.”Arlington is the second of three ships named in remembrance of 9-11. The first, USS New York (LPD 21), was commissioned in her namesake city in November 2009, and completed a nine-month deployment last December.Precommissioning Unit Somerset (LPD 25), which honors the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93, who were killed when the plane crashed in Somerset County, Penn., is under construction in New Orleans’ Avondale shipyard.The newest addition to the fleet, Arlington and its crew are a tangible tribute to honor the victims, heroes, and survivors. Her strength and fortitude are not only reflected in the ship’s crest and motto, but in the fact that her crew of 400 Sailors and Marines have worked diligently to ensure she is ready to execute the mission of the Navy, representing America – and Arlington County, around the world.Although this is the first time for the ship at her homeport, many of the ship’s crew will be returning to Norfolk, having spent months – and in some cases years – in Pascagoula, Miss., where the amphibious transport dock ship has been under construction at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ shipyard since the keel was laid in December 2008.Hundreds of family members were waiting at Naval Station Norfolk’s Pier 14 when the ship pulled in.“This homecoming’s going to be so special to us,” said Command Ombudsman Marcia Hovey, “knowing all the hours of work and training, and the months and years of separation all of our Sailors and Marines have put into making her the best ship she can be.”Already developing a strong reputation for top-notch performance, the hard work and dedication of the crew was made evident when they aced Crew Certification Phase II, Light-Off Assessment and Antiterrorism Basic Phase Verification, scoring significantly higher than the fleet averages.Last year, Arlington Sailors performed more than 4,800 hours of community service, topping 56 Navy commands to earn the Commander, Navy Region Middle Atlantic Community Service of the Year Award.“The crew is performing beyond my greatest expectations,” Nelson said. “It’s great seeing a new crew learning their jobs quickly and then performing those jobs to the highest standards by taking ownership of their ship right from the start.”A new chapter for the ship and her crew will begin with an April 6 commissioning ceremony at Naval Station, Norfolk.
