Man Wanted For the Rape Of 2 Women Turns Himself In

A man wanted for the rape of two women that occurred earlier this week has turned himself in according to Scottsdale Police.

22 year old Ryan Joseph Festa reportedly saw the sketch that was broadcasted across media outlets in Scottsdale and after speaking with his criminal defense attorney turned himself in to the Scottsdale Police Thursday night.

According to Police, Festa entered a Camden San Paloma apartment through an unlocked patio door. While inside the apartment he sexually assaulted the 49-year-old female resident. Festa entered and exited the apartment completely naked.

Festa then allegedly entered another apartment in the Saddletree complex through another unlocked patio door. This time Festa sexually assaulted a 29-year-old female resident of the apartment. The victim was injured as she fought to escape and managed to scratch the intruder’s face and forehead in the struggle. The suspect was described as a black male between 5’6″ and 5’8″ tall, thin build, and in his late teens or early twenties.

Neighbors say they saw someone fitting the description lurking in the bushes around the complex yet failed to notify police. It is believed that the suspect stalked or watched his victims before the attack.

Judge Sets Court Date for Trayvon Martin Case

Murder DefenseJune 10, 2013 will be the start of the long anticipated murder trial for George Zimmerman.

The former neighborhood watch volunteer is facing charges for shooting and killing 17 year-old Trayvon Martin inside a gated community in Sanford, FL back in February.

The murder has been the recent center of national attention due to what some feel had racial implication and a questionable state law.

The stand-your-ground law, which the criminal defense lawyer is using to justify Zimmerman’s reaction, gives Florida citizens the right to use force in self-defense when there is reasonable belief of an unlawful threat.

In this case, Martin was shot and killed while visiting a friend within the complex and was found with only candy and a soda in hand.

The case, which had already suffered several delays, was more recently delayed due to a change in judge. Circuit Court Judge Debra Nelson will be presiding over the trail after the previous judge had allegedly made disparaging remarks about Zimmerman’s character during the bond hearing.

The trial is expected to last no more than three weeks and garner an immense amount of attention within the United States.

Methamphetamine Manufacturing in Arizona

Drug Cultivation in Arizona

According to the 2012 World Drug Report released by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, an estimated 5 percent of the world’s population has consumed an illegal drug. That amounts to roughly 230 million people (about ten times the distance in miles to the sun) and a $321 billion a year industry (a hair short of 1% of the worlds commerce).

Methamphetamine is considered in recent years as one of the fastest growing and most profitable drugs on the market. Being that it can be manufactured at home with a combination of medicine and everyday cleaning products, many people dangerously use their own garages for production more infamously known as a Meth Lab.

Though in recent years, Meth Labs nationally have been in decline, Arizona is one of the few states actually on the rise. This is evident in everyday news reports of law enforcement drug busts across the state.

This week alone a married couple in Sun City was arrested for running two Meth Labs in the home where they and their three children lived. Aside from their kids being taken into custody by the state, the couple faces felony drug charges that could lock them away for a very long time.
