SPRINGFIELD -- Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni says the sentences handed out by a judge for three home invasion defendants fail to uphold public safety. "I think here the system has failed to uphold public safety, and failed to uphold the law in the way which it should," Gulluni said. On Thursday, Hampden Superior Court Judge David Ricciardone sentenced Monica Atkins and Jovan Malone, both 28, to eight to 10 years in state prison followed by three years probation.
SPRINGFIELD -- Former Blandford tax collector LeeAnn Thompson will not serve jail time but will have to pay back at least $4,800 after admitting she embezzled town funds. Hampden Superior Court Judge David Ricciardone on Friday handed down a two-year jail sentence, which he suspended in favor of probation. The sentence was recommended by defense lawyer David Hoose and state Assistant Attorney General Elizabeth Vasiliades.
SPRINGFIELD -- Luther Lee Williams on Thursday was found guilty of armed assault with intent to murder in a case where he was accused of shooting another man in the leg. Williams, 36, of Springfield, was also found guilty by a Hampden Superior Court jury of assault and battery with a firearm, illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.
Lee Rios was just sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of Kenneth Lopez in Springfield. Judge Mark Mason added 14 to 15 years after the life sentence for leaving a large capacity firearm around children.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
