(AP) — Sobbing on the witness stand, the Army captain whose sexual assault accusations triggered the court-martial of a general testified Friday that they had a three-year affair and that he threatened to kill her and her family — and "do it in a way no one would ever know" — if she ever told anyone.
By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former Manhattan madam Kristin Davis, whose quixotic bid for New York City comptroller last year was interrupted by her arrest on drug charges, pleaded guilty on Friday to selling prescription drugs for cash. Davis, 38, admitted in U.S. District Court in New York City that she sold muscle relaxants, antidepressants and sleeping pills to a confidential government informant. Following Friday's hearing, Davis' lawyer, Daniel Hochheiser, said he would ask the judge not to impose any prison time. When Davis ran last year for comptroller, the city's top financial post, one of her opponents was former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who was attempting a political comeback after resigning in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal.
