After nearly two years into his presidency, Barack Obama finds himself still whittling away at appointing U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals.

On Wednesday, he nominated 7 U.S. Marshals and one U.S. Attorney.

The nominees for Marshals included: Charles Edward Andrews for Southern District of Alabama; Darrell James Bell for Montana; William Benedict Berger Sr. for the Middle District of Florida; Russel Edwin Burger for Oregon; Joseph Campbell Moore for Wyoming; Edwin Donovan Sloane for the District of Columbia; and Esteban Soto III for D.C. Superior Court.

For U.S. Attorney, he nominated S. Amanda Marshall for Oregon.

WASHINGTON — Most Americans look forward to Friday, the gateway to the weekend. Bank robbers, it appears, are no different.

The FBI’s bank crime statistics released Wednesday for the first quarter of 2010 — January through March — shows 241 bank crimes occurred on Friday, more than any other day of the week. Bank crimes occurred most frequently, irrespective of the day, between 9 and 11 a.m, according to the FBI statistics.

There were 1,183 bank crimes reported to the FBI during 2010’s first quarter, a drop of slightly more than 22 percent during the same period in 2009. A bank crime includes a bank robbery, burglary, or larceny, but the lion’s share of crimes reported by the FBI involved bank robberies.

Obama’s Justice Dept. May Be Changing Course on Pornography Cases

hustlerWith all that’s going on in this country — terrorism threats, mortgage fraud, political corruption — it’s not a bad idea for the Justice Dept. to drop this as a high priority.

President Barack Obama’s Justice Department has quietly agreed to move a pornography prosecution out of socially conservative Montana to more urbane New Jersey – fueling perceptions by some attorneys that the new administration is stepping back from the aggressive approach the Bush administration took to prosecuting obscenity.

“This is a substantial change of position,” said Louis Sirkin, an attorney who has represented many in the pornography industry, including Hustler publisher Larry Flynt. “The new administration has come in there and made a new determination….It certainly is different than what we have seen in the past.”

“I think it has a lot to do with the change in administration,” said a former federal prosecutor, Laurie Levenson of Loyola Law School. “It makes you wonder how far they were pushing the envelope before…..These cases are fraught with problems and are not a high priority.”

This is just a bizarre story. The FBI is investigating and there’s many unanswered questions.

GREAT FALLS, Montana — A United States Customs and Border Patrol agent who was poisoned at a Cut Bank fast food restaurant last year is back in the hospital for injuries suffered in a fall earlier this week.

Denton Moberly sustained a head injury after falling outside of his Shelby home Tuesday, said his wife, Sheila Moberly. He is being treated at Benefis Health System in Great Falls.

Moberly, who moved his family from Texas to Montana two years ago because he thought it would be safer, nearly died after eating a cheeseburger laced with agricultural chemicals that he bought in a restaurant’s drive-through.

The poison caused major brain damage and forced Moberly to use a wheelchair for a year.

FBI investigators have said they have leads in the case but haven’t made an arrest.

On Tuesday, Moberly was at home with his 12-year-old daughter. She saw him go outside and later saw him lying on the ground. She called 9-1-1.
