Two men accused of raping a woman last Christmas inside an Upper 9th Ward house were indicted Thursday (Dec. 22) by an Orleans Parish grand jury. The bill charges Maurice Evans, 34, and Keith Pierre, 28, each with one count of first-degree rape and one count of second-degree kidnapping. The kidnapping offense is punishable by 5 to 40 years, while the aggravated rape felony is punishable by a mandatory life sentence upon conviction.
Cristian DeGregory, the Central City man convicted earlier this month of second-degree child cruelty upon a 5-year-old boy left partially paralyzed and brain damaged, was sentenced Friday (June 23) to serve 40 years in state prison. And that might only be a start. Criminal District Judge Byron C. Williams imposed the maximum sentence available during a sometimes raucous hearing in which the defendant continued protesting facts of the case.
The man suspected of fatally shooting two brothers of reality TV personality Toya Wright last year in the 7th Ward was indicted on murder charges Thursday (June 22) by an Orleans Parish grand jury. Antoine "Tweezy" Edwards, 31, was charged with two counts of second-degree murder and a single charge of obstruction of justice in the three-count indictment handed up in connection with the case. Edwards was booked March 9 in connection with the deaths of brothers Joshua and Ryan "Rudy" Johnson.
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".
