MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian agent briefly jailed in the United States and then deported back to Moscow has accepted a state job to defend Russians imprisoned abroad, TASS news agency reported on Friday.

Maria Butina, 31, pleaded guilty in a U.S. court last December to one count of conspiring to act as a foreign agent for Russia by infiltrating a gun rights group and influencing conservative activists and Republicans.

Moscow slammed her conviction as ridiculous and accused Washington of forcing Butina to confess.

MLB qualifying offer tracker: Who accepted, who declined?

  MLB qualifying offer tracker: Who accepted, who declined? Major League Baseball's deadline for select free agents to accept or decline their one-year, $17.8-million qualifying offers is Thursday at 5 p.m. ET. Ten eligible players were tendered qualifying offers by their 2019 teams. If a player accepts the offer, he'll return to his old team in 2020 on a one-year contract. Should he decline, the player will become a free agent and his former team will receive draft-pick compensation should he sign elsewhere. Declining a qualifying offer does not prevent a player from re-signing with his incumbent club.

Earlier this week, Russian human rights commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova offered Butina a position in the commission during her first public appearance since she was deported back to Moscow last month.

Butina did not say at the time whether she accepted the offer.

"She accepted the proposal," TASS quoted Moskalkova on Friday as saying, without saying when Butina would start her new job.

Butina did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Her case has further strained relations between Moscow and Washington, already soured over issues including U.S. allegations of Russian election meddling and Moscow's annexation of Crimea. Russia denies any interference in U.S. elections.

No new trial for Alberta men convicted in triple murders of family: Appeal Court .
CALGARY — There will not be a new trial for two men convicted in the triple murder of a central Alberta family six years ago. Jason Klaus and Joshua Frank were sentenced to life with no chance of parole for 25 years in 2018 after being convicted of three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Gordon, Sandra and Monica Klaus. The bodies of Klaus's father and sister were found in their burned-out farmhouse near Castor, Alta., in 2013 — his mother's body was never found but police believe she also died in the home. The two men had asked Alberta's Court of Appeal to order a new trial but the three member panel rejected their request.
