TAMPA TRIBUNE....Alaina "Pooh" Riggins gets 5 years on Federal gun charge, she is the cousin of the man accused of killing two Tampa police officers two years ago. Alaina "Pooh" Riggins was arrested Jan. 23, 2011, after Tampa police stopped her for turning without signaling and found a .22-caliber gun, 72 rounds of ammunition, 8.8 grams of marijuana, 1.6 grams of crack cocaine and $245 in her vehicle. Alaina "Pooh" Riggins is the cousin of Dontae Morris, charged in the June 29, 2010, slayings of Tampa police Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab.
The Armed Career Criminal Act of 1984 (ACCA) is a United States federal law that provides sentence enhancements for felons who commit crimes with firearms, if convicted of certain crimes three or more times they can receive a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, Alaina "Pooh" Riggins, DOB 10/19/1984, resume in Tampa fits the criteria with 7 drug arrests since September 2004 and 3 times she was in possession of a firearm.
There are no records of black thug Alaina "Pooh" Riggins doing any time in the State of Florida prison system, all her jail time appears to have been done in the Hillsborough County Jail, so now "Pooh" gets to skip State Prison and heads to the Federal Prison system for 5 years, LOL.
If a felon has been convicted more than twice of a “violent felony” or a “serious” drug crime, the Armed Career Criminal Act provides a minimum sentence of fifteen years, instead of the ten-year maximum prescribed under the Gun Control Act. The Armed Career Criminal Act provides for a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for 3 time violent offenders.
Reducing Newtown crime takes more than police, Sarasota officials say. There were eight murders in Sarasota last year, and all but one took place in the Newtown neighborhood. "There is a change coming and you are part of it," City Commissioner Willie Shaw told the crowd. Residents also say they are tired of the street crime, open-air drug markets and violence that plagues the community (NEWTOWN). The solution entails not just diligent police work but community support as well, two Sarasota officials told about 100 residents at a community forum Thursday night. City Commissioner Willie Shaw, whose district includes Newtown, said that crime fighting requires more than handcuffs. "You can't put everyone in jail and think you've solved all the problems," he said.
"Change" in Newtown will come with the application of the Armed Career Criminal Act of 1984 (ACCA) a US federal law that provides sentence enhancements for felons who commit crimes with firearms, if convicted of certain crimes three or more times, they can receive a maximum sentence of life imprisonment in the Federal prison system.....that will give you a "Change" in the Newtown section of Sarasota Fl
