Girls' Schools Retain Popularity Among Boys

Total Lunar Eclipse To Be Broadcast Live on Public Radio

The U.S. government will pay $4 million in response to a lawsuit filed against federal agents who forgot about a UC San Diego student left in a holding cell for days without food or water.
Daniel Chong spent five days in a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) holding cell in April 2012.

Taken into custody on a DEA raid, Chong was left in a windowless room without food and water. He was forced to drink his own urine hoping it would help him stay alive.
Chong's attorney, who filed a $20 million lawsuit against the DEA, is expected to announce a settlement Tuesday. The Associated Press reported the settlement would be $4 million.

The UC San Diego student who was left for days in a DEA holding cell has reached a settlement NBC 7 has learned. Dave Summers reports on what one legal analyst believes may be the price.

Daniel Chong, the UC San Diego student who was left in a Drug Enforcement Agency holding cell for nearly five days, said the time spent in his cell was a life-altering experience. NBC 7's Tony Shin reports.“I had to do what I had to do to,Chong told NBC 7 after the incident“It’s so inconceivable. You keep doubting they would forget you,” he said.
When he was eventually found, Chong was incoherent and suffering from kidney failure. He was rushed to the hospital where he spent three days in the ICU.
More than a year later the DEA that put him there is paying the price.
Defense attorney Gretchen von Helms, who is not representing Chong, estimates the settlement could be in the $2-3 million range.
“You break it down into the pain and suffering and how horrible this could have been for the family. They didn't know where he was, all the anguish the family went through and the young man went through,” Von Helms said.
Eventually Chong was discovered and the DEA issued a formal apology.
If turnabout is fair play in the court of public opinion it won't happen in this case.

Whether it is a complaint against the state or federal government, Von Helms says attorneys are required to first attempt a settlement before filing a lawsuit to hold down costs to taxpayers which is how this didn’t end up in court.“It wouldn' be fair to take those individual agents and put them in custody or hurt them in some fashion because of this error the appropriate punishment is financial,” von Helms said.

Vampires Share a Bloody Life

Vampire couple drink each other's blood

Fangs for the memory ... Lia and Aro sip on blood
Fangs for the memory ... Lia and Aro sip on blood

The goth pair from Haverhill, Suffolk claim they are vampires and feed from each other up to four times a week.
They've only been dating since February after they met on a dating website.
But Lia, 20, insists she fell in love at first BITE with the unemployed 38-year-old father-of-five - who claims to hail from the same region of Romania as Vlad the Impaler.
Is that claret? ... pair down the red stuff four times a week

Lia said: "From the moment we met, I knew Aro was the one.
"When he told me he was a vampire, it was exciting. I didn’t realise vampires actually existed, but I’d always hoped they did."
After a three-week whirlwind romance, Aro proposed - and a week later he turned her into a vampire during a bizarre blood-sharing ceremony.
Suckers ... they claim bloodsharing brings them closer together

She said: "When he explained that blood sharing would bring us closer together, I asked him to turn me.
"Aro cut himself with a razor on the back of his arm and then he offered me his blood. Then I cut myself and he drank from me too."Suddenly I felt the energy rushing through me. It took a day for the transformation to be complete, and afterwards I felt revitalised. It was a magical experience - much more intimate than sex."Lia loved the experience so much she's now hooked on blood and drinks it four times a week to satisfy her cravings.

Lia loved the experience so much she's now hooked on blood and drinks it four times a week to satisfy her cravings.

Dad the impaler ... father-of-five Aro, 38, claims to hail from Romania

She said: "If I don’t drink blood, I suddenly start feeling very weak."
The couple have even bought pigs blood from an abattoir for an extra fix.
But Lia insists members of the public shouldn't fear their fetish.
She explained: "It’s not like we’ll go round biting just any old person in the street. We only share blood with each other, and we’ve both had tests done."
Lovebirds ... couple met online in February

Despite the 18-year age gap and their unconventional relationship, Lia insists her parents approve of Aro - who discovered he was adopted by a London couple when he was a teenager, before changing his name from Glen Layton.
She explained: "They’re happy for us. At the start of the relationship dad said he wasn’t very happy about it, but that’s just him being overprotective. But now he’s got to know Aro, he’s fine with it."

Police Overkill in Nebraska

Couple Arrested For Sex In Park

Nebraska newlyweds plead guilty to lewd celebration

Park Sex

JULY 18--A couple who this week celebrated their wedding by having sex in public view at a Nebraska park will be spending their honeymoon in separate jail cells after they pleaded guilty yesterday to indecent exposure.

Police arrested Saint Ramirez, 23, and his bride Miaya, 31, after being summoned to the Oregon Trail Park by a trio of teenagers who reported spotting the duo having sex near “a big pine tree” around 8 PM.

When a Gering Police Department officer drove his cruiser up to the tree, he saw “Miaya had her pants off and her buttocks exposed. Miaya was moving in an up and down motion on Saint.”  “Saint had his pants pulled down to approximately his ankles,” added Officer Michael Modec.

When the patrolman loudly advised them to stop, Saint and Miaya continued to have sex. The pair eventually complied (after orgasm?) and got dressed, laughing as they put their pants back on. The pair was trysting near a playground and the park swimming pool, and “numerous children” were in the immediate area, Modec reported.

Asked by the cop what they were doing, Saint said they had just gotten married and were having sex.

On Monday, the couple was issued a marriage license by the Scotts Bluff County Clerk, according to records. The license has not yet been returned, so it is unclear whether the duo was hitched Monday or Tuesday, the day of their arrest.

The newlyweds, pictured in the above mug shots, were in the park with friends and family, including Miaya’s five-year-old daughter (apparently as part of an al fresco wedding reception).

After pleading guilty yesterday to public indecency, a misdemeanor, Mr. and Mrs. Ramirez were each sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Heavy Sleeper Awakes To Unwanted Surprise

NJ man guilty of sexually abusing woman on flight

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A federal jury convicted a northern New Jersey man Friday of sexually abusing a sleeping woman on a cross-country flight last year.
Jurors returned the verdict against 49-year-old Bawer Aksal midway through their second day of deliberations. The Turkish-born American citizen was convicted of sexual abuse and abusive sexual contact for his actions on a flight last August from Phoenix to Newark.
Aksal didn't testify but told authorities after his arrest that the woman made unwanted sexual advances toward him and forced his hands to touch her.
The woman, who testified under an alias because of the nature of the charges, told jurors she awoke from sleep to find Aksal reaching around from behind her to fondle her breasts and sticking his other hand down her underpants and penetrating her with his fingers. She testified she immediately pushed him away and got up to notify flight attendants.
A flight attendant testified that the woman was shaking and crying after the incident, and a man who sat on the aisle seat next to Aksal testified that he saw Aksal in a "spooning" position with the woman with one hand under a sweater on her lap and the other around her shoulders.
DNA samples were taken from Aksal and the woman, but tests at an FBI lab weren't conclusive, an expert testified during the trial.
The trial was held in federal court because crimes that occur on flights fall under federal jurisdiction.

Woman Who Cut Off Ex-Husband's Penis Sentenced

Sun. July 14, 2013
Bastille Day

A judge sentenced a Southern California woman who cut off her estranged husband's penis and tossed it in the garbage disposal to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Catherine Kieu, 50, was convicted by an Orange County jury in April of aggravated mayhem and torture following the July 2011 assault on her ex-husband.

Kieu drugged her former spouse before tying him up and severing his penis with a knife. She then threw it into the garbage disposal unit.

An attorney for Vietnam-born Kieu argued at trial that she had suffered sexual abuse as a child which left her with post-traumatic stress. She was remorseful about the attack, he said.

After the sentencing hearing, the victim - identified only as "Glen" - said he wished Orange County Superior Court Judge Richard Toohey could have given Kieu more time behind bars, City News Service reported.
"Deep down inside I was hoping for a stronger sentence, but given the restraints of the law this is what he had to do," he said.
"There may be a situation where I can be happy, but whole? Never ... I've got a long ways to go."

Man Has Public Sexual Relations With a Pool Float

JULY 10--For the second time in two years, an Ohio man has been charged with public indecency for allegedly “having sexual relations with a rubber pool float,” police report.
Edwin Tobergta, 34, was indicted today in connection with last month’s incident, which reportedly occurred outside his home in Hamilton, a southwestern Ohio city.

According to a Hamilton Police Department report, Tobergta “stepped out of his back door, naked and was having sexual relations with a rubber pool float.” Investigators added that Tobergta’s alleged encounter with the item “occurred in front of several children who saw his genitals and his actions with the float. The children were under the age of 10 and it occurred in the afternoon during the daylight hours.”

Pictured in the above mug shot, Tobergta is being held in the Butler County jail in lieu of $25,000 on a felony public indecency charge.

In August 2011, Tobergta was arrested after a witness reported seeing him having sex with a pink blow-up pool raft early one Sunday morning. Tobergta, whose pants were at his ankles, was trysting with the raft in an alley, not a swimming pool.

When a witness yelled at Tobergta, he reportedly threw “a pink object over the fence,” reported cops, who added that, “A pink raft was located in the back yard” of a neighboring home.
Today’s felony indictment of Tobergta notes that the defendant has previously been convicted on three or more occasions of public indecency.

Man Claims He Hid Camera To See If His Stepdaughter Had Pelvic Tattoos

After a hidden camera was found in the ceiling vent of his stepdaughter’s bathroom, a Florida man told cops that he placed it there in order to determine whether the 22-year-old woman had received “tattoos in her pelvic area,” according to a police report.

The camera was found yesterday by the woman in the Bradenton home she shares with her mother and stepfather, Arnoldo Martinez, 54. The woman “pulled out the camera and started to investigate,” deputies noted in a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.

After discovering the camera, the woman “located where the camera was plugged into an extension cord in the attic and then contacted police.” When an officer subsequently explained that a receiver was needed to view images captured by the camera,” the woman “entered her parents room” and “located a receiver plugged into her parents TV.”

Martinez, who investigators summoned from work, admitted that he “placed the camera in the vent in order to view [the woman’s] tattoos and report them back to her mother.” He also acknowledged that one storage card contained video of his stepdaughter recorded the prior evening.

According to investigators, Martinez admitted that he was aware that the surreptitious filming was illegal, but that he “wanted evidence that [his stepdaughter] did have tattoos in her pelvic area.” He added that a seized recording contained “images of her naked but he could only really view her breasts in the video.”

Pictured in the above mug shot, Martinez was charged with felony video voyeurism since he allegedly installed the camera to secretly view and record the woman for his “personal gratification.”
Martinez was released today from the Manatee County jail after posting $1500 bond. He is scheduled for an August 2 Circuit Court hearing.

JULY 8--The Oklahoma woman who had a loaded handgun concealed in her vagina when she was arrested earlier this year on a drug charge has been sentenced to 25 years in state prison, according to court records.
Christie Dawn Harris, 28, last week entered no contest pleas to three felony counts during a hearing in Pontotoc County District Court. Harris, whose rap sheet already includes multiple felony convictions, copped on June 27 to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, gun possession, and bringing contraband into jail.
Judge Steven Kessinger sentenced Harris to serve 25 years on each count, with the penalties to run concurrently. He also ordered her to pay $1363 in court costs and fees.
Harris, seen in the adjacent mug shot, was arrested in March after a drug dog alerted to a vehicle in which she and another woman were seated (the car was parked outside a closed restaurant at 3:45 AM). A subsequent search of the Toyota Yaris turned up meth, drug paraphernalia, a .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol, and a loaded magazine.
While being transported to jail, Harris told a cop “several times that she needed to go to the bathroom,” according to an Ada Police Department report.
During processing at the jail, Harris balked when directed to lower her underwear so that a female officer could check for contraband. She “advised that she was on her period and did not want to,” cops noted.
After Harris complied with police, Officer Kathy Unbewust reported, “I observed at that time a wooden and metal item sticking out from her vagina area.” Unbewust then “pulled the item from her vagina, and found it to be a 5 shot revolver with rounds in the chamber.”
The handgun, which was disassembled by cops, is seen in the above left evidence photo.
Investigators subsequently identified the weapon as a Freedom Arms .22-caliber handgun, which was loaded with three live rounds and one spent shell. The police report notes that “gun located in suspect vagina.”  The gun is depicted below, not actual size.
