Female prison officer, 27, jailed for making hundreds of calls and texts to young inmate

A female prison officer who used a “dirty phone” as she made hundreds of calls and texts with an inmate at a youth offenders unit has been jailed .

Chelsea Blackwell, 27, exchanged more than 850 messages with the 21-year-old man during their inappropriate relationship between July 12 and August 6 last year.

 

Around 115 calls, some lasting more than two hours, were also made, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.

After the male inmate’s phone was seized following a cell search at Aylesbury Young Offenders Institution in Buckinghamshire, Blackwell used a second “dirty phone” to make five calls.

 

She also wrote four letters that were discovered in his cell, and more were found at her home in Bootle, Merseyside.

A forensic handwriting report concluded there was “very strong evidence” Blackwell had written all of them.

The inmate had been jailed for seven years for wounding with intent.

Last month Blackwell pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court to misconduct in a public office, and on Thursday she was sentenced to eight months imprisonment.

Blackwell, who had been a prison officer at the institution since 2015, pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office on July 20.

Rwandan president Paul Kagame wins re-election

Rwanda’s incumbent leader Paul Kagame has sealed a crushing victory in presidential elections that granted him a third term in office, extending his 17 years in power.

Kagame has won international plaudits for presiding over a peaceful and rapid economic recovery in the Central African nation since the 1994 genocide, when an estimated 800,000 people Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed.

But he has also faced mounting censure for what critics and rights groups say are widespread human rights abuses, a muzzling of independent media and suppression of political opposition.

With 80 percent of votes accounted for, the 59-year-old former guerrilla leader secured 98.66 percent, the National Electoral Commission’s Executive secretary Charles Munyaneza told a news conference.

“We expect that even if we get 100 percent of votes, there will not be any change,” he said.

The board expected turnout to top 90 percent in the East African country of 12 million citizens once full details emerged, in elections that fielded only a single opposition candidate, Frank Habineza, and an independent.

Kagame, who cast his vote in Kigali’s Rugunga polling station earlier on Friday, said he would work to sustain economic growth in the tiny nation.

“This is another seven years to take care of issues that affect Rwandans and ensure that we become real Rwandans who are (economically) developing,” he said in a speech broadcast live on television.

Under his rule, some dissidents were killed after they fled abroad, in cases that remain unsolved. The government denies any involvement.

Kagame, a commander who led Tutsi rebel forces into Rwanda to end the 1994 genocide, banned the use of tribal terms after becoming president.

He won the last election in 2010 with 93 percent of the vote and during this campaign for a further seven-year term, said he expected an outright victory.

Habineza, who has so far won 0.45 percent of the early count, had promised to set up a tribunal to retry dissidents whose convictions by Rwandan courts have been criticised as politically motivated.

Another would-be opponent, Diane Rwigara, was disqualified by the election board despite her insistence that she met all the requirements to run.

“To me I see this as a one-man race. I simply did not go to vote,” said one man in Kigali who asked not to be named.

Usher being sued by 2 more women and a man over Herpes claims

Apart from being sued by two women, claiming he gave them herpes after not warning them he had an STD, Usher has also been sued by a man.

Celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom said she is planning to file the suit in California on Monday and will hold a news conference to correspond with the filing as one of the women is set to appear with her.

The other woman and man involved in the suit will remain anonymous and will appear as Jane Doe and John Doe in the lawsuit.
Bloom, says that the three people claim they had sexual contact with the Grammy award-winning singer after 2012.
They claim that 38-year-old Usher – whose real name is Usher Raymond IV – did not warn them that he allegedly had an STD.

Blac Chyna & Rob Kardashian are ‘finalizing custody agreement’ over their daughter Dream

 

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are coming close to agreeing on a custody arrangement for their daughter Dream.

It was reported by TMZ on Thursday that neither Chyna or Rob, 30, has requested child support but Rob would be the one to need it, mainly because he takes care of eight-month-old Dream more often then she does. Chyna makes a lot of money on club appearances and hosting gigs so Rob could request child support even if negotiations end up as joint custody.

Rob on the other hand doesn’t really make an income outside of family reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The duo, who have been embroiled in a tumultuous relationship for the past 18 months, split in February.
But things turned ugly last month when Rob unleashed an angry tirade against Chyna on social media including posting extremely intimate photos and accusing her of drug and alcohol abuse and cheating on him multiple times.
