air-jordan-xiii-13-barons-new-images-1

Believe it or not, the internet went crazy when first images of the Air Jordan XIII (13) “Barons” appeared last week.

A potential follow up to the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Barons” and Air Jordan IX (9) “Barons”, this Air Jordan XIII (13) follows suit with a white, black, and grey colorway and a theme which serves as a tribute to Michael Jordan’s time with minor baseball team, the Birmingham Barons. Aside from the usual, most have raised eyebrows over this style’s iridescent or hologram-esque mid-panel details. What’s your take on this upcoming drop?

BRONX NEWS: Man freed in rape, murder of Bronx girl may be headed back to prison



David Bryant’s days as a free man may soon be coming to an end.


The man who served nearly four decades for the vicious rape and murder of an 8-year-old Bronx girl — before being sprung from prison on a technicality last year — may be heading back behind bars now that an appellate court has overturned the decision that led to his release, authorities said.


A source with the Bronx district attorney’s office said prosecutors will demand that Bronx Supreme Court Justice Seth Marvin reinstate Bryant’s conviction for the 1975 killing of little Karen Smith.


“We go back into court Tuesday to put David Bryant back behind bars,” said the source.


A state appellate court recently overturned Marvin’s decision that Bryant’s lawyer botched his defense when he didn’t test for his client’s blood type or consult with a scientist who specializes in body fluids.


Cops found a semen stain on Karen Smith’s clothes with type O blood; Bryant has type B blood.


The possibility was raised that Karen’s fluid mixed with the semen sample to create the O result, since the girl also had type O blood. But Bryant’s attorney, Paul Casteleiro, contends that was unlikely because of her young age.


Casteleiro argued if Bryant’s original attorney, Paul Auerbach, had consulted experts, he would have been able to more effectively challenge the serologist’s testimony.


“His failure to have the defendant’s blood type determined or consult with a serologist was not part of a legitimate strategy; it was the result of neglect and ignorance,” Marvin said in his decision last year.


But the appeals court said Auerbach’s failure to consult a serologist “did not deprive the defendant of a fair trial.”


“Although there was a lack of physical evidence connecting (Bryant) to the crime, his guilt was established on the basis of his voluntary statements to the police, the testimony of several witnesses placing him near the scene of the crime and evidence indicating consciousness of guilt,” the judges wrote in their June 19 decision.


Attempts to reach Bryant were unsuccessful.


Karen was found in the stairwell of a Bronx housing project. She was wearing only her underwear, and her blood was found splattered on the walls.


The next day Bryant, then 18, was arrested for her murder. He had been arrested twice previously for sexual misconduct, because his girlfriend’s father was unhappy with the relationship, but never brought to trial, his attorney said.


He was convicted of Karen’s murder and sentenced to 25 years to life, but got his freedom back in April 2013, thanks to the Centurion Ministries, an advocacy group founded in 1983 that reinvestigates convictions it suspects are flawed.


On Friday, Casteleiro filed an application to appeal the latest ruling against his client. A judge could still throw Bryant, who has been working as a landscaper, back in prison until this second appeal is decided on.


“David remains confident that his innocence will be recognized,” said Casteleiro.
