Former Santa Clara Sgt. and San Mateo Deputy Convicted for Separate Sex Crimes

In two separate trials, two California cops were convicted of unrelated sex crimes just doors down from each other. In one case, former Santa Clara police sergeant, Thomas Leipelt, was convicted for exposing himself to his girlfriend’s co-worker in the back room of her place of employment. According to the co-worker, Leipelt exposed himself and propositioned her for sex just after he finished having sex with his girlfriend in the restroom. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail and lifetime registration as a sex offender. However, Leipelt will be able to appeal his sex offender status after seven years—a possibility contingent on whether he has a spotless probationary record.

Down the hall, San Mateo County Deputy, Galen Underwood, was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison, plus 38 years, for a far more heinous crime. In 2013, the deputy’s secret crimes unraveled after a female relative he had been molesting for six years came forward to her guidance counselor. He was fired from the Sheriff’s department shortly after and has been in custody ever since. The seven charges that Underwood was found guilty of include aggravated sexual assault and assaulting the victim with intent of committing sodomy and rape.

The Leipelt case marks the third time a Santa Clara police officer has been fired for misconduct, following one 14-year officer’s departure for running a chop shop with stolen car parts, and another 25-year veteran’s discharge for shoplifting.

Kanye West, Kim Kardashian divorcing?

Rumors have been spreading that 36-year-old reality television personality Kim Kardashian-West  is planning to divorce her husband, 39-year-old rapper, songwriter, and record producer Kanye West, as per a friend’s interview on the new issue of Us Weekly, saying, “She wants a divorce.”

However, a tweet from television show E! News, the purported home of the reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” said: “Calm down everyone. Kim and Kanye are not divorcing.”

Various sources admitted that they have been seeing a strain on Kardashian’s and West’s relationship. After she was robbed on October 3, 2016 in Paris, France, Kardashian was hoping to obtain emotional support from West, but he was busy with his Saint Pablo tour and was having some apparent emotional and mental problems of his own.

For instance, an insider told People magazine, “Kanye and Kim had a few stressful months. It’s been a tense time. But Kim is happy he’s getting help.”

FBI will not press charges against Brad Pitt regarding child abuse allegations

Actor and producer Brad Pitt has been given a break. A report made by entertainment news network TMZ revealed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicated there is no further reason to probe his alleged confrontation with 15-year-old son Maddox. The alleged incident occurred during a trip back to the United States from France on a private plane on September 14, 2016 and contributed to 41-year-old actress, film maker, and humanitarian Angelina Jolie filing for divorce against him.

In a statement, the FBI said, “The FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation. No charges have been filed in this matter.” The news surfaced just as Pitt was promoting his movie Allied, which opened in theaters last Wednesday, November 23.

Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie divorce all about child custody

Actor and producer Brad Pitt, 52, and actress, producer, and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, 41, still haven’t come to the point where they can finalize their divorce. However, Pitt’s first filing on Friday, November 4 tells us what their divorce is really about: custody of their six children, namely 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Pitt’s filing was in response to the divorce filing Jolie made back on September 19 in Los Angeles, California. She asked for sole custody of the children; Pitt asked for joint custody. Under a temporary agreement, the children are living with Jolie in a rented home in Malibu, while Pitt has been able to see his children on scheduled, monitored visits. What’s more, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is continuing an investigation to find out the details of a supposed altercation that happened between Pitt and his eldest son, Maddox, during a private plane flight to the United States from France in mid-September.
