A suspected escort was charged with attempted murder for biting a man's penis and testicles during a drug-fueled oral sex romp in a Florida hotel room.
Priscilla Vaughn, 29, was nude with blood dripping from her face as she
"growled and snarled" at responding deputies early Tuesday at the
Crestwood Suites in Orlando, according to the arrest report.
"I literally thought there was a beast inside this place," said Evette Mays, the hotel guest who dialed 911, possibly saving the man's life.
A man who spent two years in solitary confinement following a DWI charge without trial has been awarded $15.5 million.
Stephen Slevin, 58, was arrested in New Mexico in 2005 for driving while intoxicated and driving a stolen car, reports The Los Angeles Times.
The car belonged to a friend and was loaned to Slevin. He was not released from solitary confinement until 2007.
While in solitary, his attorney, Matt Coyte, said that his health
deteriorated and he was even forced to pull out his own tooth. After a
year and a half, he weighed 133 pounds, had long hair and a messy beard. His toenails had grown around his feet. He was sent to a psychiatric hospital, where he was “almost back
to being a normal human being” after two weeks, Coyte said. But for some
unknown reason, in May 2007, he was sent back to solitary for another
month before finally being released.
Prosecutors didn’t end up even charging him, finding him incompetent to go to trial, notes Coyte.
“He was a pretrial detainee the entire time,” his attorney told the LA Times. “He was never convicted.”
According to NBC News,
Slevin was first in the news in January 2012, when a federal jury
awarded him $22 million for the ordeal. Dona Ana County was appealing
the ruling, but finally agreed to a $15.5 million settlement this week. The photo on right is Mr.Slevin when first detained; the photo on left was taken after 2 years in solitary confinement
