Alleged Ivanka stalker arrested
A 27-year-old man accused of stalking Ivanka Trump has been arrested in Reno, Nev., The Associated Press reports. Police say Justin Massler was arrested on a New York warrant alleging he used the Internet to stalk the daughter of Donald and Ivana Trump. Ivanka Trump, 28, is the co-host of "Celebrity Apprentice" and a vice president at her father's real estate company. Massler described himself in a blog posting as "a celebrity stalker who is obsessed with Ivanka Trump." Massler had been living on the East Coast and visiting his mother in Reno. His mother, Randee Massler, says he has only written about Trump on the Internet and hasn't come close to her. He remains held in the Washoe County Jail in Reno.
Probe sought in Polanski case
Roman Polanski's attorneys have filed an appeal asking that a special counsel investigate alleged judicial misconduct in the director's 32-year-old sex case, The Associated Press reports. The appeal was filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing new evidence that a prosecutor was aware of misconduct by the judge handling the case in the 1970s. The lawyers say former Deputy District Attorney Roger Gunson gave secret testimony this year on the judge's conduct. The attorneys asked the transcripts of his testimony be unsealed. They also asked that Polanski be sentenced to time served without requiring his presence in court. The director is under house arrest in Switzerland. A judge ruled in January that Polanski must appear in court before he could be sentenced for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977.
