Native American teen faces a year in prison for possessing one gram of weed

Native American teen faces marijuana jail termAn Oregon teenager could be sentenced to a year in prison for possessing about one gram of marijuana in a federal case that has sparked widespread outrage about the ongoing “war on drugs” – even in US states that have fully legalized cannabis.

Devontre Thomas, a Native American 19-year-old, is accused of possessing a small amount of weed – enough for about one joint – and will face a federal trial that advocates say is a waste of resources and a stark reminder that US law enforcement agencies continue to target people of color for low-level pot offenses.

Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped

Freddie GrayProsecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history.

Purvi Patel has 20-year sentence for inducing own abortion reduced by Indiana court

Purvi PatelAn Indiana appeals court on Friday threw out the most serious conviction of Purvi Patel, the first US woman to be sent to prison for inducing her own abortion, and reduced the severity of the other charge of which she was convicted, with a rebuke for the prosecutors who sought furiously to convict her of fetal homicide.
