A federal appeals court has reinstated the full 40-year sentence of a convicted mobster who passed along a tip leading to the recovery of explosives stashed away in the one-time home of convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols. In 2016, Colombo solider Gregory Scarpa Jr. saw his sentence shaved down to a 30-year term by Brooklyn Federal Judge Edward Korman, who said Scarpa deserved credit for the valuable information.
An MS-13 gangbanger is getting 40 years in prison for two Long Island killings and another murder plot. Melvin Marquez-Sanchez executed a fellow MS-13 member — a suspected cooperator who wasn't violent enough — and then killed a rival before fleeing to Maryland where he planned another rival's rub-out, according to Brooklyn federal prosecutors. On Thursday, Marquez-Sanchez got a sentence from Long Island federal judge Joseph Bianco that will keep the 22-year-old behind bars until his senior years.
The last member of a family’s cocaine-trafficking operation will serve a 20-year sentence. Angelo Gigliotti, 36, received the stiff sentence Thursday in Brooklyn federal court for his role in the smuggling operation run from the family's Italian restaurant in Queens. His 61-year-old dad, Gregorio, already received an 18-year sentence and his 56-year-old mother, Eleonora, got a seven-year term.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
