DNA evidence supports an Austrian man’s confession that he fathered six children by his daughter while keeping her prisoner for 24 years, police say.
Lower Austria police chief Franz Polzer said Josef Fritzl, 73, had completely deceived his wife, his family and the authorities in the town of Amstetten. Hospital officials meanwhile said Mr. Fritzl’s daughter and her children had experienced an “astonishing” reunion.
They met at a clinic where they are receiving psychiatric treatment. Earlier, Mr. Fritzl was detained for a further 14 days by a regional court in the provincial capital of St Poelton. He said nothing to the examining magistrate on the advice of his lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, who met him earlier in the day, prosecutors said.
The father, the grandfather, the torturer the rapist, the monster with the many faces and DNA is not necessary top prove the last one!
Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes has received a three-year prison sentence for tax offenses.
A federal judge handed down the maximum term requested by prosecutors – a year for each of Snipes’s convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return. Snipes’s lawyers had called for leniency, arguing that the offenses were misdemeanors and that the star was of good character.
But prosecutors said an example should be set because of Snipes’s fame. In February, Snipes was found guilty of deliberately failing to file tax returns for 1999, 2000 and 2001, but was cleared of more serious fraud and conspiracy charges.
