Syracuse, NY -- A Central New York man came to court today to ask for a lower bail in the alleged rape and abuse of a girl from the age of 13. William Parks, 37, is facing charges of first-degree rape and criminal sex act, accused of physically forcing a girl when she was 15 to have sex with him. Parks is also accused of abusing the girl two years earlier, when she was 13. The alleged abuse happened a few years ago. Parks was arrested recently in Salina.
Syracuse, NY -- Frank Fowler Jr., the Syracuse police chief's troubled son, is back in jail again after being accused of biting, grabbing and pulling a woman through a window Saturday during a burglary. Fowler Jr., 26, had been scheduled for trial this week on a previous drug charge in which he appeared headed to avoid jail. But instead, he was arrested and sent to jail with bail set at $10,000, according to jail records. The incident occurred at a Mayar Street residence on the city's North Side.
Syracuse, NY -- For more than a year, Woodrow Holmes had sparred with numerous lawyers assigned to defend him in a November 2015 murder case. One judge even suggested he should represent himself. Holmes, 31, was finally due to stand trial this week in the shooting of Kingston Ellis inside a Hawley Avenue residence. His current two lawyers -- the fifth and sixth assigned to the case -- had been working long hours trying to prep his defense.
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".
