Florida man who attacked McDonald's worker over straw sentenced to jail

Florida man who attacked McDonald's worker over straw sentenced to jail The Florida man who was recorded on New Year's Eve taking a beating from a McDonald's worker after grabbing her over a straw was sentenced to jail last week. Daniel Willis Taylor, 40, pleaded guilty to two counts of battery and was sentenced to 60 days in jail by a Pinellas County judge, as the Tampa Bay Times reported. He's already served 58 of the 60 days. The New Year’s Eve viral video showed Taylor screaming at an employee working the register after he couldn't find a straw. He then reached over the counter and grabbed her out of anger.

Prakash has been held in a maximum-security jail in Gaziantep, in southern Turkey , since he was captured in October 2016 while trying to sneak across the border from Syria using fake identity papers. He is believed to have left for Syria in 2013, where he changed his name to Abu Khaled al-Cambodi

Melbourne-born Islamic State recruiter Neil Prakash has been sentenced to seven-and-a-half years' jail in Turkey.

Prakash has been held in a maximum-security jail in Gaziantep, in southern Turkey, since he was captured in October 2016 while trying to sneak across the border from Syria using fake identity papers.

He is believed to have left for Syria in 2013, where he changed his name to Abu Khaled al-Cambodi and was put on a US kill list.

While there, the self-confessed Islamic State member was "the principal Australian reaching back from the Middle East into Australia," former attorney-general George Brandis said.

Senior counter-terrorism officials have said Prakash was a pivotal figure and had appeared in IS propaganda urging attacks in Australia.

He has been linked by the FBI to a failed plot to attack the Statue of Liberty in New York.

Before his time as an IS terrorist, Prakash was a gang member with a drug problem and a failed hip hop artist.

After converting to Islam, he had attended Melbourne's controversial Al-Furqan Islamic Centre.

In December, the Federal Government revoked Prakash's rights as an Australian citizen because of his affiliation with IS and argued it could strip his citizenship because it had "clear advice" he had, or was entitled to, Fijian citizenship.

Prakash was born in Melbourne to a Fijian father and Cambodian mother.
