RAYMOND P. VINNIE  vs.  SUPERINTENDENT, MASSACHUSETTS CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTE, NORFOLK.

March 21, 2018.

Supreme Judicial Court, Superintendence of inferior courts.

In 1993, Raymond P. Vinnie was convicted of murder in the first degree.  After plenary review, we affirmed the conviction and the denial of his motion for a new trial.  Commonwealth v. Vinnie, 428 Mass. 161, cert. denied, 525 U.S. 1007 (1998), overruled on another ground by Commonwealth v. Paulding, 438 Mass. 1 (2002).  In 2016, Vinnie filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus pursuant to G. L. c. 248, § 1, in the county court, arguing that he was unlawfully imprisoned pursuant to a void mittimus.  A single justice of this court transferred the petition to the Superior Court.  A judge in that court denied relief.  Vinnie then filed a motion in the county court, seeking to reinstate his petition on the ground that the Superior Court judge made various procedural and substantive errors.  The same single justice denied the motion without a hearing.  Vinnie appeals from that ruling. read more

Boston School Superintendent to Step Down

Carol Johnson, superintendent of the Boston Public Schools system, will step down after this year.

Johnson wrote a letter to the school community and published a video on YouTube Wednesday on how she came to the decision following the recent death of her husband.

“This has been a difficult decision but, as you are aware, the loss of my husband and best friend Matthew has been life-altering for me and my entire family,” she said in the video. “After a long and rewarding career that I am truly proud of, I believe it’s time for me to take time to focus more on family, which, of course, always comes first.”

In 2012, Johnson was awarded the nation’s highest honor for urban educational leadership, the Richard R. Green Award, presented by the Council of the Great City Schools, according to a Boston Public Schools press release.

Boston Schools Superintendent Shares Tips for Talking with Kids about Marathon Bombing

Boston Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Carol Johnson

In the aftermath of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing, Boston Public Schools Superintendent Carol R. Johnson sent a letter to staff and families of students titled, “Talking with Children about Tragedies,” that was shared via the Warren-Prescott School newsletter on Tuesday morning.

In the newsletter, Warren-Prescott Principal Michele Davis wrote: “Our sincere thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by yesterday’s events. Our own Melissa Shea ran the Boston Marathon yesterday and her family was among the spectators. I am relieved to report that Melissa and her family are safe.”

Davis asked that anyone with information about other Warren-Prescott families that may have been affected by the bombing to contact her at mdavis@boston.k12.ma.us.

Boston Public Schools are closed this week for April Vacation.

Below is Johnson’s letter:
