Mizzou fan on team plane pleads guilty in cocaine case

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 03:51 Published in Local News
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri men's basketball fan who over four seasons regularly traveled with the team to NCAA tournament games has pleaded guilty to a federal drug conspiracy involving cocaine and marijuana distribution.
   Online court records show that Levi McLean Franklin Coolley pleaded guilty Jan. 17 to attempting to sell more than 88 pounds of cocaine and an unspecified amount of marijuana between 2005 and 2011.
   Coolley owns a car stereo shop in Columbia.
   Coolley was arrested by FBI agents in March 2012 while at the Missouri team hotel in Omaha, Neb., hours before the Tigers' NCAA Tournament second-round loss to Norfolk State.
   An internal review by Missouri found no improper influence by Coolley. He was on the team flights as a guest of Columbia real estate developer and prominent Missouri donor Jay Linder.
 

Snow prompts MO House to cancel hearings

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 03:41 Published in Local News
   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The winter weather spreading across much of Missouri has caused the cancellation of a few afternoon House committee hearings.
   Hearings on budget proposals for education, mental health, public safety and social services were called off Tuesday after snow blanketed Jefferson City.
   The House Chief Clerk also officially closed House operations at 1:30 p.m. because of the weather. A House Insurance Policy Committee dinner scheduled for tonight at Jefferson City Country Club was also called off.
   The afternoon snow didn't halt all legislative activity. Two Senate committees met, and evening House hearings were still scheduled.
   Both the House and Senate are scheduled to resume work Wednesday morning.
 

   An East St. Louis man is suing the city and a police detective, claiming he was beaten until he falsely confessed to a rape.

   Marlon Miller's federal lawsuit alleges former East St. Louis Detective Orlando Ward struck him several times out of the view of police recording devices. During the alleged beating, Miller confessed to attacking the woman as she left a MetroLink train.

   DNA tests later absolved Miller of the crime and led to the arrest of another suspect.  

   Several cases involving Ward have been under review since the former detective was indicted in a federal cocaine investigation.
