Wearing a blue dress shirt and a yellow tie, Jacob Blake, paralyzed after being shot in the back by a Kenosha, Wisconsin, police officer, made a first court appearance — and his first public appearance since being wounded — Friday from his hospital bed.

Blake is accused of one felony — third-degree sexual assault — and misdemeanor criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

He spoke briefly to the judge when asked if he understood the charges against him. When asked if he had any questions Blake responded, “At the moment, no, I don’t.”

His attorney, Patrick Cafferty, submitted not guilty pleas for all three charges.

Buellton fitness center ordered to close over COVID-19 health order violations | Crime and Courts

“To all our loyal members please know that I will fight and make this right,” Henrey said on his Facebook page Aug. 31. “[I] remained because I felt our members needed it and I needed to support my family.” 

The warnings began on June 3 when Ben Hernandez, a Buellton code enforcement officer, visited the gym and told Henrey his gym was not allowed to be open, according to court records. 

Henrey acknowledged the warning but replied that his gym was an essential business because he also sells masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment. He said he has taken measures that include spacing equipment at least 6 feet apart, taking members’ temperatures, requiring face masks and making members sign a liability waiver. 

Additionally, acting on advice from his attorney, Henrey told Hernandez his gym was “not open to the public and members only,” according to the lawsuit.

IU School of Medicine to test experimental COVID-19 vaccine

Updated

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana University School of Medicine announced Thursday that it’s seeking up to 1,500 volunteers to take part in a late-stage clinical trial of an experimental COVID-19 vaccine.

The medical school is one of 81 sites in the U.S. — and the only one in Indiana — chosen to test the vaccine developed by British drugmaker AstraZeneca in partnership with Oxford University.


Nationwide, researchers plan to enroll a total of 30,000 participants for the clinical trial of the Cambridge, England-based company’s vaccine, known as AZD1222. Two-thirds of the participants will receive the vaccine and the remaining one-third will get a placebo.

IU’s vaccine testing will be conducted at IU Health University Hospital, located in Indianapolis. The Phase III trial is the last stage before manufacturers can seek the Food and Drug Administration’s approval for widespread public use.

Those patients who have been able to get an appointment now face charges of up to £40 for PPE
