NC man sentenced in NJ sex assaults, murder try

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – A North Carolina man who hogtied and sexually assaulted two women inside a northern New Jersey apartment and also tried to murder his nephew there has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.

Anthony Massenburg, a former East Orange resident, must serve 85 percent of the sentence imposed Wednesday before becoming eligible for parole. He was convicted in December on 14 counts, including attempted murder, aggravated assault and sexual assault.

The 41-year-old Henderson, N.C., resident and three accomplices broke into his nephew’s Irvington apartment in January 2010. He wasn’t there, but the nephew’s girlfriend and another woman were and they were tortured until the girlfriend agreed to call the nephew.

The nephew returned and was hit on the head with a hammer, but he and the women managed to escape.

Attorney: NC sheriff won’t settle profiling claims

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – An attorney for the North Carolina sheriff accused of illegally arresting Latinos without probable cause to boost deportations says the lawman isn’t interested in a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department.

Attorney S.C. Kitchen told government lawyers on Wednesday that Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson hasn’t done wrong and his deputies don’t discriminate.

Johnson has been a supporter of a federal program that allowed local law enforcement officials to check the immigration status of those they detain, potentially triggering deportation. The Department of Homeland Security announced this year it was discontinuing the program after widespread complaints of racial profiling.

The Justice Department said last week Johnson abused his authority by ordering his deputies to find reasons to arrest motorists who appeared Latino while letting white drivers off with warnings.
