According to a very reliable source, Usher Raymond's stalker, Darshelle Jones Rakestraw, is a lot more dangerous than Usher realizes.

Rakestraw was arrested at the R&B singer's mansion inside a gated community on June 24. She was taken to Emory Johns Creek hospital and later released.

During a 911 call obtained by Usher told the dispatcher Rakestraw was ringing his doorbell. "She's obviously a fan of some sort," he said.

Usher took out a restraining order on Rakestraw which she proudly displayed in a home video that she uploaded to

According to my source, Rakestraw has reportedly been arrested more then 25 times in the past. Her alleged crimes range from robbery, burglary, and aggravated robbery to identity fraud, and stalking.

All of Rakestraw's alleged crimes (except the stalking) occurred outside of Georgia. According to my source, Rakestraw poses a serious danger to Usher and his estranged wife Tameka Foster.

  • A former high school and collegiate basketball star-turned-coach was arrested and charged with having sex with the girls she coaches.

    Marquita Adley (pictured), was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with three counts of sexual battery by a custodian on a victim under 18 years of age.

    Adley was released on $15,000 bond after spending the night in jail. The West Broward High School girls basketball interim coach is accused of fondling a 16-year-old girl and committing other sex acts on her between April and June at the girl’s house, a teammate’s house and during a road trip.

    The girl told police that she engaged in consensual sex with the coach. She said that she did not ask Adley to stop or push her away. But in Florida a 16-year-old can't consent to sex with an adult.

    A registered sex offender who attacked a boy inside a Portland restaurant restroom is HIV positive, according to a FOX News report.

    The suspect, Adam Lee Brown, was on parole after serving 11 years of a 15-year sentence for trying to infect young boys with HIV in 1992. Despite his HIV status -- and his reckless disregard for children -- he was ordered to register as a sex offender after his release.

    Brown was arrested Sunday after he dragged a 10-year-old boy into a Wendy's restroom, locked the door and stabbed the boy repeatedly when he fought back.

    The child screamed in pain as his father attempted to gain entry into the barricaded bathroom. A Wendy's employee managed to get the door open, and Brown shoved the boy out but locked himself inside.

    Moments ago, a judge in Seminole County granted George Zimmerman a new bond for the 2nd time. The new bond is for $1 million which will require Zimmerman to pay $100,000 to walk out of jail as early as today.

    According to the Orlando Sentinel, the judge imposed new conditions on Zimmerman's bond. Zimmerman can't have a bank account (but his wife can), he can't open a new bank account, he must wear a GPS monitor, and he has 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

    Zimmerman has collected over $300,000 in public donations. That gives him $200,000 to live "a good life," as he was overheard telling his wife Sheliie during a recorded jailhouse phone call in April.

    The bond hearing for neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman is under way at this hour in Sanford, Florida.

    A judge will decide if he should be freed on bond a 2nd time. Zimmerman is charged with 2nd degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin.

    Zimmerman's $150,000 bond was revoked earlier this month for not informing the judge about $205,000 in public donations collected by his personal website.

    Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, called a forensic finance specialist Adam McGill to the stand to help explain why Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, lied about the $205,000.

    According to Migill, the reason Zimmerman transferred the cash into his bank account in $10,000 increments was because of "PayPal rules" -- which doesn't explain why Zimmerman's wife transferred the money from Zimmerman's bank account into hers in the same $10,000 increments.

    In a bond hearing in April, Shellie told the judge she had no idea how much money had been collected. She was later arrested and charged with perjury.

    O'Mara says Zimmerman has $11,000 in cash and goods to his name. The bulk of the donations is being held in a trust set up by O'Mara.

    Update 6, 11:35 a.m. ET
    O'Mara presents the 911 audio with screams heard in the background. O'Mara calls Robert Zimmerman, the defendant's father, to the stand to testify that the voice heard on the audio is Zimmerman screaming.

    Update 5, 11:25 a.m. ET
    The court is in a brief 5 minutes recess. The defense has no other witnesses.

    Update 4, 10:54 a.m. ET
    The defense offered evidence of Zimmerman's injuries. A paramedic testified that Zimmerman's head was "45% covered in blood," and he possibly had a fractured nose. The prosecution countered that the scalp is full of veins and bleeds profusely. The paramedic agreed. The prosecution added that Zimmerman went to work the next day and he only went to a doctor when his employer asked for a doctor's note.

    Update 3, 10:28 a.m. ET
    Zimmerman's expert witness says $24,386 was spent on Zimmerman's living expenses and paying off debts (including American Express credit card).

    Update II, 10:26 a.m. ET
    O'Mara says $200,000 was donated in 11 days to defray living expenses, not to pay Zimmerman's defense.

    Update I, 10:18 a.m. ET
    The financial expert said the money moved from Zimmerman's account to his wife's totaled about $132,000. The expert wasn't able to explain why $43,000 ended up in the bank account of Zimmerman's sister.

    Voice samples of murder suspect George Zimmerman were released today as part of the discovery in the Trayvon Martin murder case in Florida.

    Zimmerman, 28, can be heard yelling "Help, help," repeatedly in voice reenactment audio samples recorded on March 22. The voice samples were used by investigators to be compared with the male voice heard crying on a 911 call.

    Zimmerman told police he called out for help before shooting and killing the 17-year-old high school student on Feb. 26. But 2 independent voice analysts hired by the Orlando Sentinel determined that Zimmerman's voice did not match the voice heard crying on the 911 tape.
