Department of Utah AG: Maricopa County A Phoenix
PHOENIX–Utah Attorney General's Office officials today announced the allegation of human trafficking and baby selling on the part of Maricopa County Assessor Paul D. Petersen. Officials in Utah said that in California, Petersen was arrested and charged with carrying out an illegal adoption scheme where he abducted, delivered, and made a fee to women who were pregnant from the Pacific Islands to give up babies for adoption in the United States.
Officials of Utah suspect Petersen of shipping over 40 pregnant women to Utah during the last three years, and that, in the sense of a long history of adoption-related abuse of Pacific islands, adoptions between the United States and the Marshall Islands were prohibited by an arrangement between the two nations.
Utah investigators said that in concurrent inquiries of the program they worked closely with prosecutors in California, Arkansas, and the Marshall Islands State. While the Arizona authorities are still not issuing a statement, the FOX 10 has discovered that officials at the Arizona Office of the Prosecutor-General have brought 32 charges of collusion, deceptive schemes and artifices, extortion, false plans and practices, and forgery against Petersen and other identified Lynwood Jennet. The articles are published on 7 October.
The Marshallese women, in order to be equipped with medical services through the Arizona Health Care Coasting System (AHCCS), are wrongly portrayed, according to the indictment by officials from Arizona. Petersen and Jennet have been credited with helping women flee Arizona once women gave birth, and on several occasions, the woman moved to the Marshall Islands. The Petersen home and office in Mesa was allegedly subjected to searches.
The details and confidentiality of Twitter Advertising were listed as being a Private Adoption Attorney for 15 years on Petersen's website by 17 people. Petersen was elected to the Office by a special election in 2014 and was again returned to the board in 2016, according to the County Assessor's website. Petersen also received around 70 percent of the vote in votes in November 2014, against the nominee for Libertarian Party documents held by the Maricopa County Recorder's Office. He was the only candidate to win over 98% of the votes in the 2016 campaign.

In the meantime, Utah authorities are also expected to have a news conference to discuss the matter on Wednesday.

Steven Taylor would like the supporters of Wellington Phoenix to give former coach Mark Rudan a standing ovation at Westpac Stadium on Sunday when the new A-League season ends.
This remains to be seen whether they will heed their Captain's call.
As 2019 began, Rudan could do little wrong in the eyes of Phoenix supporters, having turned the club around and sent it on a record 9 game unbeaten run, which made a return to the playoffs for the first time in 4 years inevitable.
But as January turned to February, and he refused to commit to the second season in the capital, while reports linking him to the Western United expansion club began to pile up, things began to sour.
His appointment across the ditch was labeled the worst kept secret in Australian football and eventually verified at the end of May, and when three out-of-contract Phoenix players – Durante, goalkeeper Filip Kurto, and middleman Max Burgess – joined him, anger among the club's fans only grew
Rudan said at the time that he had not approached any Phoenix players about signing for his new club, but added, teasingly: "Did they come up to me? That's a different story".
"I can not speak any more highly about Mark and what he did last year was phenomenal, on and off the pitch, so I think he deserves respect and I hope that when he comes and gets a standing ovation because of what he did here was fantastic.
"You have got Dura, Kurto, Max Burgess coming back here. Andrew Durante has left his gift at the Wellington Phoenix - what a player, what a guy. He was phenomenal for the football club and that should never be forgotten about, so I hope he gets recognized as well, before the game.
'Comedy genius' Peter Kay has declared the Phoenix Club will open its doors in Blackpool with a special anniversary screening of the comedy show to be shown from the Opera House, Winter Gardens
Kay revealed the previous month in celebration of the 19-year milestone since the award-winning Phoenix Nights first aired to audiences; the classic show would be shared on the biggest screen around the country for the very first time.
Now Lancashire fans can take a seat and relive all the highlight moments with Brian Potter, Jerry ‘the saint’ St Clair, Les Alamos, Max and Paddy, and all the gang.
The screening of both series of northern sitcom takes place at the Blackpool Opera House on Saturday 29 February.
The special picture showing also includes exclusively recorded cast interviews, all net profits from the event will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
Carol Evans, director of partnerships at Cancer Research UK said “We are so grateful to Peter for arranging these unique screenings of such an iconic TV series to raise money.
"The money that is lifted from the events will fund vital research to beat cancer.”
The last time the Bolton born funnyman was at the Opera House was for a charity screening of his BBC comedy Car Share.
Kay, 45, announced 3 charity screenings at the venue, showing a special finale of his BBC sitcom plus an improvised episode.
Almost 3,000 fans were at that first screening on Friday to see what happened among Kay's character John and Kayleigh, played by Sian Gibson.
The comedian has been spotted on visits to the resort, the last time in April, after taking a break from the spotlight since canceling a 109-gig sell-out UK tour due to ‘unforeseen family circumstances’ in December 2017.
It’s no laughing matter: Like many people his age, Joaquin Phoenix has come to the completion that his comic book collection is no gold mine.
“I'm disappointed that my comics are not more valuable,” says Phoenix, 44, who still has some pretty choices issue, including Wolverine’s first appearance. “When you are a kid, a 100 bucks is like a lot, right? I remember reading comics, being so excited: ‘Oh, man, it's going to be worth 150 bucks!’ And then you're an adult with a mortgage and you recognized that all of your comics, it doesn't amount to much.”
The great heroes of his childhood have become big business in Hollywood, though Phoenix is going in a very different direction with a fabled comic icon. Director Todd Phillips’ keenly anticipated psychological thriller “Joker” (in theaters Friday) imagines that a real-world scenario gives rise to the legendary Batman villain. That antagonist comes in the form of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a troubled Gotham City clown and stand-up comedian mocked and bullied for his unusual behavior and otherworldly cackle.
Phoenix is the latest in a long line of movie Jokers, joining the ranks of Jack Nicholson (1989’s “Batman”), Heath Ledger (2008’s “The Dark Knight”) and Jared Leto (2016’s “Suicide Squad”). But he does find the urge of the anarchic antagonist – for actors and pop culture fans alike – “curious” overall.
“I wonder if it's that they project their own feelings on the character because in some ways he is a blank slate,” says Phoenix, breaking into a gigantic bottle of water while relaxing in an outdoor area of bar hotel. “Most of these villains and heroes, their motivations are so clearly defined. Maybe there's something enjoyable about a character in which we do not really know what motivates him.”
Ledger posthumously won an Academy Award for his Joker, and Phoenix could make it two-for-two for the bad guy at the Oscars. A three-time nominee, he is already considered overdue for golden glory, critical acclaim for his work is boosting awareness, and he "most definitely will be in the mix," says Fandango.com managing editor Erik Davis.
"(Oscar) voters love a juicy, no-holds-barred performance, he says. "And while Phoenix’s take is tough to watch and makes you uncomfortable at times, those are often the most powerful and everlasting performances because they are the ones that stick with you long after leaving the theater."

PHOENIX — The elementary school teacher died and a man is injured after a head-on collision in Phoenix on Saturday afternoon.
The crash took place between 33rd and Grand avenues. Phoenix Fire said that a 24-year-old man was taken to a hospital in serious condition.
Crash investigators found that the man was driving a 2019 Toyota Camry and turning on Weldon Avenue to go south on Grand when he crashed with the woman who was heading north on the 2008 Ford Fusion.
The woman was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. Police have identified her as 25-year-old Heather Began.
The Littleton Elementary School District said that on Sunday Began was in her second year of first-grade teaching at the Estrella Vista STEM Academy. She graduated from the University of Eastern Illinois and moved to Arizona.
The district said it was bringing "plans together to support the community."
"It is with a heavy heart that we report the death of Ms. Heather Began, a first-class teacher at the Estrella Vista STEM Academy. Ms. Began involved in a fatal car crash yesterday afternoon. The school expresses its sympathy to all who knew her both in and out of the Littleton Area," the district said in an e-mailed statement.
Police do state that impairment could be a factor in this incident. The investigation is ongoing. Traffic on Grand Avenue was opened between 33rd to 35th Avenues. The place is now being reopened.
A man died while in Phoenix police custody on Sunday morning, when cops responded to a call to fight at a convenience store in the West Valley.
Officers say they received a report that a 49-year-old man was "pushing customers acting erratically and making paradoxical comments." At one stage, police said he locked the store's front doors with customers and staff inside.

The police came to Circle K at 51st Avenue and McDowell Road at about 5:45 a.m. The police said the man initially resisted arrest but was ultimately taken into custody.

"You're a mysterious man, will you agree?"
So the talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel questioned his guest, Joaquin Phoenix, during Tuesday night's session of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"But an actor could be observed at any given moment. Phoenix is known for his off-screen ambiguity almost as much as he is for his on-screen volatility, and it is often difficult to determine when he is, or is not, sincere. For proof, we need only point to the interaction between the two men that took place later in the episode, after Kimmel had played what he believed to be the exclusive outlet of Phoenix's latest film, "Joker."
The clip said to have been courtesy of director Todd Phillips, consisted of Phoenix in the clown makeup of his character, taunting filmmaker Lawrence Sher for "constantly whispering" during filming. At one point, the actor seems to respond to Sher's comment about him acting like a diva, saying, "This isn't even an apology. Cher, really? She's a musician, actress, actress, fashion icon.
Phoenix shifted to his chair and laughed nervously at the clip, telling Kimmel, "Yeah, look, sometimes movies get severe because you are a lot of people in a small space, and now you're trying to find something that can make you feel intense. Well, that was supposed to be private. I'm a little embarrassed. "Kimmel's cracking remarks about what Phoenix said in the video only intensified the embarrassment of the situation and after hitting YouTube the next morning, the show came round.
Good news for all those who suffered the anxiety of second hand: the outbreak of Phoenix was fake! His reps revealed to The Wrap that it was recorded as a comedy, which also proves to us that Phoenix is a great actor and that Kimmel, who seemed suspiciously okay with the palpable annoyance of his guest, is not.
Those familiar with the antics of Phoenix could recall a similar incident that occurred over a decade ago. Sporting sunglasses and a hardy beard, Phoenix featured on a channel of "Late Show With David Letterman" on February 2009 and informed the presenter in a slurred speech that he was dabbling to jump-start a rap profession.

A man who fell between a running Metro light rail train and a bus platform in Midtown on Wednesday is expected to survive a leg injury.
The person was waiting to board the Red Line Southbound train at Wheeler Street station about 2 p.m. When he stepped into the moving train, sliding into the inch-wide gap between the platform and the station, the Houston firefighters reported. He was pushed on his foot, and he was pulled along the platform by the train until it came to a stop.
He suffered serious leg injuries, but was quickly pulled from under the train car by firefighters. He was transferred to Ben Taub Hospital for treatment and is expected to survive, said the firefighters. While the southbound red line was temporarily shut down, people were sighted on and off another southbound train at around 2:45 p.m.
Houston's murders in 2019 were outstripping the number of murders in 2018 and 2017, police claim.
As of Wednesday, Houston Police Department Homicide Detectives solved the murders of 210 people compared with 207 in 2018 and 186 in 2017. This is a rise of around 1.5 percent over 2018 and almost 13 percent since 2017.
The spike was due to the fact that the FBI figures reported by the Houston Chronicle indicate that total crime is down, but violent crime is still on the rise. Of the 210 people killed so far in 2019, 129 were convicted by the police.
Just recently, retired Houston police officer Gerald Goines was charged with two counts of murder for conducting a failed raid on 7915 Hardin St. that killed Dennis Tuttle and Rh

Fünf Brandenburger Bezirke haben sich bislang in Zusammenhang mit der Rückrufaktion wegen Listerien in Wilke-Wurstwaren gemeldet. Das Landesamt für Arbeitsschutz, Verbraucherschutz und Gesundheit habe zuvor betroffene Landkreise informiert, teilte das Verbraucherschutzministerium am Donnerstag mit. Grundlage seien die Vertriebslisten aus anderen Bundesländern. Dabei handelte es sich um Direktlieferungen der Firma Wilke, aber auch um von ihr belieferte Zwischen- und Großhändler.
In der Prignitz etwa hätten fünf Betriebe Waren erhalten, teilte der Landkreis mit. Dazu gehörten zwei Altenheime, ein Imbiss, ein Großhändler und eine Pension. In zwei Fällen sei Wurst entdeckt worden, die sofort gesperrt worden und nicht zum Endverbraucher gelangt sei.
Aktuell wird im Land den Angaben zufolge bei drei zurückliegenden Erkrankungen untersucht, ob ein Zusammenhang mit Listerien besteht. Aktuelle Fälle seien nicht bekannt, hieß es beim Ministerium.
Listerien waren in Produkten des nordhessischen Herstellers Wilke entdeckt worden. Die Keime können für Menschen mit geschwächtem Immunsystem lebensgefährlich sein. In Südhessen sind zwei Todesfälle bekannt. Bei zwei Toten in Niedersachsen wurde ein Keimtyp entdeckt, der genetisch eng mit den Listerien aus den Wilke-Produkten verwandt sind.
