Saturday, 10 May 2014 15:39

Live5news.com - A Berkeley County man was sentenced to 60 years in prison for a 2011 armed robbery in Goose Creek. 

Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said 26-year-old Donte Samar Brown was convicted of three counts of armed robbery, five counts of kidnapping, second-degree burglary, and criminal conspiracy after nearly a week long trial. Brown must serve eighty-five percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole. 

Prosecutors say the co-defendant, Christopher Wilson, pleaded guilty to similar charges in December 2013. Wilson was sentenced to a similar term of 60 years in the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

Brown and Wilson's convictions stem from an incident on Dec. 24, 2011, when two masked men, one armed with a butcher knife and the other with a handgun, forced their way into the back door of the local Zaxby’s. Continue

Friday, 02 May 2014 12:19

Jacksonville.com - This is Florida and most Floridians love seafood. They just want to be sure that they're getting what they pay for, if it is grouper let it be grouper and not tilapia.

A database, compiled by out news partner The Florida Times-Union, reveals there is a problem with seafood being misrepresented in our community. Siena's Italian Cuisine was on the list. Oktay Kiroglu is the owner.

"It was like September or October of last year," said Kiroglu. That's when a state restaurant inspector found fish being sold as grouper when it was not. Kiroglu said he transported from one restaurant to another in an unlabeled bag. "They thought it was grouper and put it on the special," he said.

Kiroglu said there was never an intent to defraud customers "It was an honest mistake," he said, "and we apologize for what happened." Continue

Applebee's found not guilty in over-served patron suit! Print
Friday, 02 May 2014 11:40

KOB.com - A federal jury on Wednesday found an Applebee's restaurant not guilty of over-serving a patron who was later involved in a deadly drunk driving crash.

However, Applebee's and the franchisee who operated the Santa Fe restaurant negotiated a settlement minutes before the verdict came down.

Four years ago, Santa Fe police said James Ruiz was driving drunk when he got into a crash, killing teenage sisters Del Lynn and Deshauna Peshlakai. The girls' family argued that Applebee's had over-served Ruiz.

The details of the settlement are confidential, but the girls' father says the lawsuit still accomplished something.

"I don't want my girls dying for nothing. We want to be heard, we want to make some changes in the rules of alcohol--people taking responsibility and sticking to their rules when it comes to alcohol the drunk driver," David Peshlakai said.

Ruiz is serving a 42 year prison sentence for the deadly crash. Continue
