    22-year-old Alexandra V. Tobias of Jacksonsville, Florida, pled guilty to the second-degree murder of her 3-month-old son Dylan Lee over an interrupted Farmville session.

    A Jacksonville mother charged with shaking her baby to death has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

    Alexandra V. Tobias, 22, was arrested after the January death of 3-month-old Dylan Lee Edmondson. She told investigators she became angry because the baby was crying while she was playing a computer game called Farmville on the Facebook social-networking website.

    Tobias entered her plea Wednesday before Circuit Judge Adrian G. Soud. A second-degree murder charge is punishable by up to life in prison.

    Prosecutor Richard Mantei said Tobias' sentence could be less because of state guidelines that call for 25 to 50 years. Soud offered no promises on what he'll order during a sentencing hearing scheduled for December.

    Outside the courtroom, Mantei said Tobias' plea will help avoid the family reliving the tragedy during a jury trial.

    Tobias told investigators that she shook the baby, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again. She said the baby may have hit his head during the shaking.

    Botched circumcision leaves three-month-old Portland boy in critical condition

    A three-month-old boy was taken to an area hospital in critical condition after his mother tried to circumcise him at her Portland home Sunday, the Portland Police Bureau reported.

    Officers were asked to respond on a medical call at a home near East Burnside Street and 127th Avenue after 2 a.m. Sunday, said Sgt. Pete Simpson, a bureau spokesman.

    A woman at the home told investigators that she tried to perform a circumcision on her son, then, when she realized the boy was in trouble, called 9-1-1. The boy is expected to survive.

    Child abuse detectives were called to the scene to investigate. No arrests have been made, and no other children are thought to be in danger, Simpson said.

    Semen in yogurt linked to NM grocery store worker
    Police have matched DNA taken from a 31-year-old man to semen found in a yogurt sample that was offered at an Albuquerque grocery store.

    The Associated Press
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —
    Police have matched DNA taken from a 31-year-old man to semen found in a yogurt sample that was offered at an Albuquerque grocery store.

    Albuquerque Police Department spokeswoman Trish Hoffman said Thursday an investigation is continuing but the man faces a potential charge for battery.

    Hoffman says Food and Drug Administration authorities are also looking into the case and might pursue a federal felony charge for food tampering.

    Police responded to the Sunflower Market in northwest Albuquerque on Jan. 26 after a woman called 911 and reported a store employee had given her what she was told was a yogurt sample. The woman told police she believed it was actually a bodily fluid.

    Hoffman says the man was arrested on an unrelated warrant.

    140mph Youtuber arrested

    Click here to enlarge

    ​On paper, the plan might have seemed bulletproof. Stanislav Bakanov would videotape himself driving his BMW at ridiculous speeds and post it on YouTube, thereby earning the admiration of juiced-up meatheads nationwide. Either he'd drive fast and get away scot-free, or he'd get pulled over, in which case the videotaped conversation with police would make him an even bigger Internet sensation. Unfortunately, Bakanov forgot that driving 140 mph would simply get him thrown in jail--and the video footage? That's what prosecutors call "exhibit A."
    Reuters reports that Bakanov was arrested on Saturday after an officer clocked his black 2005 BMW going at near light speed up I-5 in northern Oregon.
    When the officer approached Bakanov's car, he supposedly saw that Bakanov was videotaping him from the front seat. He asked why and the driver proceeded to tell him that he was trying to make a YouTube video.

    The officer wasn't too jazzed about making an unpaid cameo in such a low-budget film, and promptly arrested Mr. Bakanov--but not before he asked what else was on the video and got to see leadfoot's speedometer top out at 140 mph--way higher than the 118 mph he'd clocked him at.
    So the video camera was confiscated and used as evidence that's already led to his car being impounded and him being fined $1,100, and will likely lead to a driver's-license suspension as well.

    Sushi Restaurant Taken To Court By All-You-Can-Eat Customer




    LOS ANGELES TIMES-Reporter David Lazarus

    David Martin was in the mood for raw fish, and he liked the deal offered by a Studio City sushi restaurant: all you can eat for $28. He took a seat at the counter and started ordering. But it turned out that Martin didn't really want sushi, which includes rice; he wanted all-you-can-eat sashimi, which is just fish. He began picking the seafood off the top and leaving the rice.

    Restaurant owner Jay Oh told Martin that if he wanted the all-you-can-eat price, he'd have to eat the rice too and not just fill up on fish. Martin replied that he has diabetes and that he can't eat rice. Oh said he offered to prepare sashimi for Martin. Two orders of sashimi cost $25, or $3 less than the all-you-can-eat sushi deal. But Oh said Martin declined the offer.
    Martin left the restaurant after being charged a la carte prices for the sushi he'd already ordered plus $1 for a cup of green tea.

    Two weeks later, Martin filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court. It seeks at least $4,000 in damages for the "humiliation, embarrassment and mental anguish" Martin says he suffered after being discriminated against "on the basis of his disability."

    Discrimination, or shakedown?

    Oh says it's the latter, and is determined to go to trial, even if the eventual legal cost tops the $6,000 Martin subsequently demanded to make his lawsuit go away.

    "I have to fight this," Oh told me over green tea at A Ca-Shi Sushi before the dinner rush. "Why do I have to give this person money? I didn't do anything wrong."

    Martin couldn't be reached for comment. But his attorney, Stuart E. Cohen, said that "we are not after money, but a change in A Ca-Shi's thinking and policy."

    "I would rather like to see A Ca-Shi succeed on a level playing field, not a discriminatory one," he said.

    “The rice is part of the all-you-can-eat sushi,” Jay Oh, the owner of the A-Ca Shi restaurant, told the LA Times.

    “If you only eat the fish, I would go broke.”

    ^ Definitely please update us on how that plays out. There is a difference between Sushi and Sashimi.

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice have landed themselves in hot water over the destruction of a Ferrari F50. According to The Detroit News, the vehicle was reported stolen from a dealership in Rosemont, Pennsylvania in 2003, and the dealer made and insurance claim for the sum of $750,000 at that time. Michigan-based Motors Insurance Corp. shelled out the cash, More..and in August 2008, the FBI recovered the vehicle in Kentucky. At that time, the FBI stored the vehicle while waiting to prosecute the thief, at least until someone at the bureau decided to use it for a little local arbor work.

    The Ferrari F50 lost control and struck a tree with an FBI special agent behind the wheel in May of 2009, and Motors Insurance Corp. subsequently filed a claim to both the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice for the full $750,000. Both parties rejected the claim under the pretense that the Ferrari was being detained by the FBI at the time of the incident.

    The insurance company then set about submitting Freedom of Information Act requests for documents pertaining to the storage, transportation and handling of the Italian exotic, most of which were denied under federal exemptions or outright ignored. The company did manage to get a hold of one email that said that U.S. Assistant Attorney J. Hamilton Thompson rode with Special Agent Frederick C. Kingston on the day of the accident and that the vehicle fishtailed and slid sideways shortly after leaving the FBI storage warehouse.

    Motors Insurance Corp. is now suing both the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI to release the rest of the documents pertaining to the vehicle.

    Wow those guys must be a big deal. The big agencies I deal with would probably almost enjoy pushing someone that messed up like that under the bus.
