MARTINEZ, CA {Photo} The testimony of a girl who claimed that an East Bay minister had sexually abused her for years was backed up by DNA samples collected inside a church, prosecutors said Wednesday. As if that weren’t enough, prosecutors had a bit of unexpected circumstantial evidence to point to: an empty chair, which was supposed to be occupied by defendant Fernando Maldonado. But Maldonado, facing 23 counts of child molestation, decided to flee after hearing his alleged victim testify on Friday, and is now on the run from the law. After he was charged, someone posted the $106,000 premium for Maldonado’s $1.295 million bail, and he was released from custody. His bail terms included a court order that he show up for his court hearings and trial. But because he was deemed voluntarily absent, Maldonado’s trial is continuing without him. That put defense lawyer Patrick Riggs in a bit of an awkward spot, but he plowed ahead, suggesting to jurors they should find Maldonado not guilty.

CA (Photo) Alex Kozinski is a high-profile judge who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. Nine more women say that he subjected them to sexual comments or other conduct. Four of the women say he touched them inappropriately. Kozinski has already had been accused of subjecting several women to a range of inappropriate sexual conduct or comments. The circuit’s chief judge on Thursday took the first step in launching an investigation into his behavior. Kozinski said in a statement: “Many of the things that are being said about me are simply not true, but I deeply regret that my unusual sense of humor caused offense or made anyone uncomfortable.” The new allegations span decades and include not just those who worked for Kozinski but those who encountered him at events. The nine women bring the total number of women accusing the judge of inappropriate behavior to at least 15.

VA (Photo) Charlottesville General District Court Judge Robert Downer, Jr. presided over preliminary hearings Thursday for three defendants charged in cases related to the Charlottesville August rally. The defendants include Richard Preston {pictured} a Baltimore Ku Klux Klan leader who is accused of firing a gun. also charged were Jacob Goodwin and Alex Ramos, who are accused in an attack on a man in a parking garage that was captured in photos and video that went viral. The judge certified the charges against all three men. All those cases will also head to a grand jury. In a telephone interview from the jail in the fall, Preston told media sources he is being misrepresented as a violent racist. He said he didn't go to Charlottesville as a KKK leader, but as a member of a militia that went to protect rally participants and a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

D.C. -- The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repeals net neutrality rules, allowing Internet providers to speed up, slow down or block service for apps and websites. In a sweeping act of deregulation, the FCC repealed landmark Obama-era regulations overseeing broadband companies such as AT&T and Verizon. Republicans at the FCC also passed a measure that would make it more difficult for future agency officials to regulate Internet providers. The move to deregulate the telecom and cable industry was a major setback for tech companies, consumer groups and Democrats — and a prominent example of the policy shifts taking place in Washington under President Trump.
