A Broward man accused of plotting to bomb an Aventura synagogue during Passover last year is scheduled for a change-of-plea hearing this morning. James Gonzalo Medina, 41, of Hollywood, was arrested in April 2016 after an undercover sting. He previously pleaded not guilty to charges of attempting to damage religious property and attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, a fake bomb. Those offenses carry a maximum punishment of life in federal prison.
A man who refused to speak in court for 12 months is facing a lengthy prison term when he is sentenced today for selling heroin that was linked to a man’s near-fatal overdose last year in Delray Beach. Gerald Petion, who is also known as “Gangsta,” resumed talking in court in May and pleaded guilty to related drug-trafficking and firearm offenses. Federal prosecutors are recommending Petion, 33, of Pompano Beach and Delray Beach, should serve 20 years in prison.
The woman accused of fleeing after fatally striking a pedestrian on Las Olas Boulevard last month had been drinking beer with friends for hours before the indicent, state prosecutors said Thursday. Regina Goodrich, 25, of Coral Springs, surrendered in Broward Circuit Court on Thursday afternoon. She is charged with one felony count of leaving the scene of a fatal accident on July 1.
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".
