Leading this week's crimes.. a federal judge in Virginia sentenced a Romanian man known as "Guccifer" to 52 months in prison for computer hacking. "Guccifer" whose real name is Marcel Lazar, claimed that, among the email accounts he hacked, was the one used by Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state. Law enforcement officials said he didn't but his claim exposed her use of a private server, miring her in controversy as she vies to become the next president of the United States. In California, the former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexual assault left a Santa Clara county jail after serving half of his six-month sentence. 21-year-old Brock Turner had been convicted of assaulting an unconscious and intoxicated woman. His release from prison sparked fresh outrage and demonstrations from critics. Two Fresno County deputies were rushed to the hospital in critical condition after they were shot by a man who came to visit an inmate at the Fresno County jail. Police have charged a 37-year-old man with the shootings. They say he is a known gang member who was released from prison in 2004 after serving a 14-year-sentence on multiple charges of rape. And that wraps up this week's crimes.
