Basehor man sentenced after crash kills 2 groomsmen

2 hours 21 sec ago

BASHOR, Kan. (AP) – A Basehor man has been sentenced to a year in jail and probation for a crash that killed two relatives who were to be groomsmen at a wedding the day they died.

Leavenworth County Attorney officials say 22-year-old William Wilson was sentenced Friday for involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol.

The charge stemmed from a June 2015 crash near the Kansas River that killed 29-year-old Jesse Aldrich and 34-year-old Justin Wilson.

The Leavenworth Times reports prosecutors say William Wilson had a blood-alcohol level of .09 after the accident. He was 20 at the time and the legal limit for a driver under 21 is .02.

William Wilson and the two victims were to serve as groomsmen at Wilson’s brother’s wedding in Basehor the day they died.

Kids sell homemade lemonade for 8-year-old girl with cancer

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 21:37

MULVANE, Kan. (KSNW) – People from all around south central Kansas drove to Mulvane Friday to help a young girl with cancer.

8-year-old Bailey has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. To help her family with medical expenses, a day care in Mulvane opened a lemonade stand.

The kids worked all week to make cookies and lemonade for the stand.

“I thought it would be a great idea for the little kids to know they can make a big impact and to help Bailey,” said Marie Heckathorn, organizer of the lemonade stand.

Bailey’s grandma, Sonya Whitlock, is grateful for the support.

“It’s appreciated because they’ve gone through a lot lately and all the support and all the love that we get helps Bailey out tremendously,” said Whitlock. “It puts a smile on her face.”

Brad Rogg drove from Wichita to donate to the cause.

“There’s giving people out there and that’s what it’s all about,” said Rogg. “It’s helping others as best you can.”

The American Legion Riders also showed up to Bailey’s lemonade stand. All of the money raised will go to Bailey and her family.

Cost a factor for agencies looking to carry Narcan

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 19:24

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – It’s not hard to see the benefits of Narcan.

“We had an incident where a detective was exposed to a drug that caused him to have to go for medical care. That was before we had Narcan. So, that is what drove us to get a few doses of Narcan for our own employees, for our employee’s sake,” says Lieutenant Lin Dehning with the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office.

The drug saves lives, almost instantly. And because of a new law, first responders, like police officers and firefighters can carry and administer the drug.

“It is just a funding issue right now to have it out for all of our deputies

It’s just expensive, about $39 a pop.

Dehning says the sheriff’s office relies on Sedgwick County EMS to administer the drug.

In 2015, EMS reponders administered the drug 315 times, up from 179 in 2014.

Director of Sedgwick County EMS Scott Hadley says in the past they paid around $2,100 for the drug annually, but could soon be paying as much as $12,000 for it as costs are rising.

That’s something the sheriff’s office is taking note of as it considers letting deputies carry it.

“There is also the shelf life issue about, they only last for so long, so if you buy some to have it out on the streets, what cars do you put it in?” says Dehning.

Wichita Police Chief Gordon Ramsay has also said his officers would carry it if they could afford it.

Still, Hadley says they’re happy they can administer the drug.

“It may be well worth that investment, obviously, to have that medication in the first responders’ hand if it is going to save someone’s life,” says Hadley.

Many other departments like the Andover Police Department says they are working collectively with the county to see what the best and most efficient way is to access and administer the drug.

A staggering number of SSNs stolen from Kansas data system

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 18:06

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) — Some Kansas residents could be at risk for identity theft after hackers took advantage for a security breach. Hackers got into a Kansas Department of Commerce site that is used by several states.

The numbers are staggering and in all, about 5.5 million people are affected. More than 500,000 Kansans were affected.

Reports show that about half a million Kansans had their Social Security numbers stolen back in March from a Kansas Department of Commerce data system.

“It’s not fun once you get your identity taken,” said Jason Drohman with Western State Bank in Garden City

Kansans with accounts on kansasworks.com were victims of that cyber-attack and had their social security numbers stolen.

“It was a coding problem or vulnerability that was discovered,” said Ron Carlson, a cyber security professor at Garden City Community College, “and of course code is not usually perfect and is exploited where possible.”

Hackers did exploit that and now for those affected, it could affect their credit scores and cause fraudulent charges, but it may not happen quickly.

“Sometimes thieves hold on to the data and use it later for an attack, but not immediately,” said Carlson.

If you’re not sure you were affected, there are red flags to look out for, like mail for a credit card you didn’t sign up for or mysterious transactions in your bank account.

“If you think you’re one of them,” said Drohman, “just make sure you’re watching your bank accounts, your credit card accounts, any type of accounts that you have out there.”

Banks and credit card companies will work with you to clear up any issues.

“Fill out a report stating these are not my charges, this is not my account, and then some due diligence will be done and you should be taken care of,” said Drohman.

Kansas will pay for a year of credit monitoring for those affected, but you’ll have to sign up for it.

“Free credit monitoring is available to those who had accounts,” said Carlson, “so you can contact that Kansas workforce.”

There’s nothing the average person could have done to prevent this breach, but you can beef up your personal security by changing your passwords regularly, installing malware software on your computer, and only using secure internet connections.

KSN reached out to the Kansas Department of Commerce, but they didn’t respond to our request for comment.

Union: Kansas prison forcing officers to work 16-hour shifts

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 16:59

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A union representing Kansas state employees says some officers at the state’s maximum-security prison outside El Dorado are being required to work 16-hour shifts.

The Kansas Organization of State Employees disclosed Friday that it filed a grievance earlier this month with Corrections Secretary Joe Norwood. KOSE Executive Director Robert Choromanski said the practice is dangerous.

He also said it violates a bargaining agreement between the department and prison employees that keeps officers from being required to work more than 12 hours in a 24-hour period.

Choromanski said eight officers have complained to the union and the practice began in early July. An hours-long disturbance occurred at the El Dorado prison June 29.

Department of Corrections spokesman Todd Fertig declined to comment and called the grievance a personnel matter.

Teens laugh as man drowns

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 15:17

COCOA, Fla. (WESH) – Calling it “beyond heartless,” Cocoa police are denouncing a video that shows a man drowning and crying out in distress, while five teens watch and laugh.

Jamel Dunn, 31, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond in Cocoa on July 9, police said. His body was not discovered until July 12.

Shortly after the discovery, a video surfaced on social media that shows Dunn in the water while teenagers nearby mock and curse him, police said.

Dunn cries out, and a burst of laughter ensues from the teens, one of whom recorded the video on a phone, police said.

“They had phones, but didn’t even call for help,” Cocoa police spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said. “Anyone who could just watch a man die like that is beyond heartless,” she said.

Investigators do not know why Dunn entered the deep water of the pond, but it followed an argument with his fiancée, Martinez said.

Investigators have identified the teens and interviewed them. After consulting with prosecutors in the Brevard County State Attorney’s Office, investigators said Thursday that the teenagers had broken no laws.

On Friday, police changed course and said they planned to charge the juveniles with failure to report a death, a misdemeanor charge. Police said it is an obscure law that has not been used.

The State Attorney’s Office will examine the evidence and decide whether to prosecute the teenagers. It’s unclear when that determination will be made.

In a statement Thursday, the Brevard-Seminole State Attorney’s Office wrote:

“While the incident depicted on the recording does not give rise to sufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution under Florida statutes, we can find no moral justification for either the behavior of persons heard on the recording or the deliberate decision not to render aid to Mr. Dunn.”

Speed enforcement blitz taking place this weekend

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 14:52

SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) – If you’re traveling on Kansas highways this weekend, you may see an increased law enforcement presence. A speed enforcement blitz spanning six states is taking place this weekend.

Kansas Highway Patrol has paired with law enforcement agencies at the county and city level to enforce speed limits and other driving violations in an effort to cut back on fatality wrecks.

“We seem to still be having a large number of injury and fatality car crashes across at least our state of Kansas. A lot of times, the contributing circumstances are speed, so that’s what we ‘re trying to do this weekend is really get out there and get people slowed down through education and enforcement,” trooper Chad Crittenden with KHP said.

In Kansas, 25 percent of fatal crashes are speed-related which closely matches the national average of 27 percent.

Troopers are saturating speed-prone areas and making stops, reminding people of the speed limit and to wear their safety belts.

“Obviously the fatality rate has been high in the last couple years and we’re really trying to drive that down. Me sitting on the side of the road having someone pulled over, hopefully I get four to 500 people during that traffic stop driving by me to see me and slow down as well. Just my officer presence being on the side of the road,” Crittenden said.

The blitz runs through Sunday.

Kansas court affirms conviction in Wichita station death

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 14:38

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court has affirmed a man’s conviction in the 2014 beating death of a Wichita radio station employee.

The court on Friday rejected arguments from Antwon Banks that prosecutors presented circumstantial evidence that did not prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt during his trial for first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Daniel Flores. The justices ruled the state presented sufficient evidence to convict Banks.

Flores was found beaten to death in the basement of a Steckline Communication office in February 2014. Prosecutors said Banks bludgeoned Flores with a fire extinguisher after Flores found Banks scrawling hateful messages about Banks’ former girlfriend on a wall. The girlfriend was a Steckline office manager.

Prosecutors said Banks was upset over a recent breakup with the woman.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigns

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 12:05

WASHINGTON (AP) — White House press secretary Sean Spicer abruptly resigned his position Friday, ending a rocky six-month tenure that made his news briefings must-see TV. He said President Donald Trump’s White House “could benefit from a clean slate.”

Spicer quit in protest over the hiring of a new White House communications director, New York financier Anthony Scaramucci, objecting to what Spicer considered his lack of qualifications and to the direction of the press operation, according to people familiar with the situation.

Spicer said during a brief phone conversation with The Associated Press that he felt it would be best for Scaramucci to be able to build his own operation “and chart a new way forward.”

He tweeted that it had been an “honor” and “privilege” to serve Trump and he would remain in his post through August.

Spicer had long sought the strategic communications job for himself and had been managing that role along with his press secretary duties for nearly two months.

His decision to quit was sudden and took advisers inside and outside the White House by surprise, according to the people with knowledge of the decision. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the personnel matter publicly.

Spicer’s daily press briefings had become must-watch television until recent weeks when he took on a more behind-the-scenes role. Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has largely taken over the briefings, turning them into off-camera events.

Spicer spent several years leading communications at the Republican National Committee before helping Trump’s campaign in the general election. He is close to White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, the former RNC chair, and several of the lower-ranking aides in the White House communications shop.

Priebus told The Associated Press that he supports Scaramucci “100 percent,” despite reportedly trying to prevent the financier from getting multiple administration positions.

“We go back a long, long way and are very good friends,” Priebus said of Scaramucci. “All good here.”

Spicer also complimented Scaramucci, a New York financier and frequent defender of the president who was a staple at Trump Tower during the president’s transition, saying “It

‘ll be great, he’s a tough guy.”

Scaramucci is expected to play a visible role as one of Trump’s defenders on television. But Spicer and other officials questioned his hiring as communications director ahead of the president’s push to overhaul the tax system and other policy issues.

Spicer and other press staffers had been feeling that they finally had the press shop operating effectively, aside from matters related to the Russia investigation, said one of the people familiar with the situation.

News of Spicer’s resignation set off a chaotic scene at the White House.

Inside the West Wing, a gaggle of reporters more than a dozen deep crowded around a doorway leading to the press offices seeking more information on Spicer’s departure and other potential staffing moves. White House officials announced that Sanders would hold the daily briefing — the first on camera since June 29 — on Friday afternoon.

Scaramucci’s hire was a surprise. He had been told by the administration that he would be nominated as U.S. ambassador to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an intergovernmental economic organization that includes the world’s better-off countries.

A senior foreign official, who demanded anonymity to discuss private personnel discussions, said Scaramucci had been meeting with various foreign diplomats as recently as last week in anticipation of his new role as ambassador to the OECD.

Spicer’s tenure got off to a rocky start. On Trump’s first full day in office, he lambasted journalists over coverage of the crowd size at the inauguration and stormed out of the briefing room without answering questions.

Spicer, who often displayed a fiery demeanor in tense on-camera exchanges with reporters, became part of culture in the way few people in his job have, particularly through an indelible impersonation by Melissa McCarthy on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

She portrayed Spicer as a hostile figure who tore through the briefing room on a portable podium, willing to attack the press.

A Roman Catholic, Spicer was dealt a blow when Trump excluded him from a group of White House staffers and Trump family members who got to meet Pope Francis when Trump visited the Vatican during his first foreign trip in May.

Spicer remained loyal to Trump but frequently battled perceptions that he was not plugged in to what the president was thinking, and had to worry that Trump was watching and critiquing his performance from the Oval Office.

Throughout the start of the administration, there was always the possibility that Trump would undermine something Spicer said by simply sending out a tweet.

Spicer is a Rhode Island native and a commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve.

He apologized in April after he attempted to compare the Holocaust and Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons, saying it was “inexcusable and reprehensible.”

The resignation comes a day after Mark Corallo, the spokesman for the president’s outside legal team, left his post. And in a separate move, former White House aide Katie Walsh is returning to the RNC, spokesman Ryan Mahoney said. Walsh will serve as an adviser on data and digital issues, and the appointment is unrelated to the White House personnel changes, he said.

Judge OKs $11.2M settlement for hacked Ashley Madison users

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 12:02

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A federal judge on Friday approved an $11.2 million settlement between the marital infidelity website Ashley Madison and users who sued after hackers released personal information, including financial data and details of their sexual proclivities.

U.S. District Judge John Ross in St. Louis gave preliminary approval to a settlement that was announced last week by Toronto-based Ruby Corp., the parent company of Ashley Madison. Several lawsuits were consolidated in the Eastern District of Missouri.

A final approval hearing is scheduled for Nov. 20.

The lawsuits were filed after hackers outed millions of people who used the website two years ago. The suits said Ashley Madison misled consumers about its security measures and safeguards.

The company denied wrongdoing but said in a statement that it settled to “avoid the uncertainty, expense, and inconvenience associated with continued litigation.”

Ashley Madison is marketed to people seeking extramarital relationships. Its slogan is, “Life is short. Have an affair.” At one time, it purported to have about 39 million members.

Hackers broke into Ashley Madison’s systems in July 2015 and posted the details a month later after the company didn’t comply with their demands to shut down. The release of evidence of infidelity triggered extortion crimes and unconfirmed reports of suicides.

In December, Ruby Corp. agreed to pay $1.6 million in settlements with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission over the data breach. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia joined the FTC in the investigation that found lax data security practices. The investigation also found Ashley Madison created fake female profiles to entice male users.

In addition to monetary penalties to the FTC, Ruby agreed in December to end certain deceptive practices, to not create fake profiles, and to develop a stronger data security program.

The company has said that since the initial hack it has implemented several measures to make customer data more secure.

Hackers had access to millions of Social Security numbers

Fri, 07/21/2017 - 11:57

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Records show a breach of a Kansas Department of Commerce data system gave hackers access to more than 5.5 million Social Security numbers in 10 states.

The Kansas News Service reports records it obtained through an open records request show more than half a million of the 5.5 million Social Security numbers obtained by hackers were from Kansas. The records also show about 805,000 other accounts that didn’t include Social Security numbers were exposed.

The department will pay for credit monitoring for most of the victims.

The suspicious activity was discovered March 12 by America’s Job Link Alliance-TS, the commerce department division that operates the system. The FBI was contacted March 15.

A commerce department representative didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.
