The Mercury News began its investigation in late 2002, as concerns emerged about the quality of justice in a series of high-profile cases.

To test how the system worked more broadly, the newspaper reviewed the records of five years of criminal jury trial appeals decided by the California 6th District Court of Appeal -- 727 cases in all. In addition, the newspaper uncovered about 200 cases of questionable conduct that were not part of the study period, by reviewing files and interviewing lawyers.

For the third time this week, a public school teacher convicted of raping a same-sex student has been sentenced to no jail time - this time it's a lesbian coach in Florida who had relations with a 15-year-old.

Amy Lilley, 36, a former teacher and softball coach at Lecanto High School in Lecanto, Fla., was sentenced yesterday to two years of house arrest and eight more years of probation. Lilley, who was arrested in November, pleaded no contest to lewd and lascivious battery, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

The state Department of Social Services sought a legal order to withdraw life support from a brain-damaged girl, who is now showing some signs of improvement.

Agency officials, already under fire for missing signs that 11-year-old Haleigh Poutre was chronically abused, defended their decision to act so quickly, saying they followed doctors' diagnosis that her condition was hopeless. Though neurologists say that some patients with severe brain injuries show major improvement months later, DSS officials say they were told by doctors that Haleigh was "virtually brain dead."

Florida's military-style boot camps for juvenile delinquents should have been shut down long ago.

The programs aren't effective. Worse yet, they're dangerous. Earlier this month a 14-year-old boy died within hours of his arrival at a boot camp in Bay County. Fortunately, this wake-up call has been received loud and clear by some state lawmakers.

Where do babies come from' For people who adopt from overseas, the operating assumption is that children who need a home were abandoned by their birth mothers and somehow delivered to an orphanage.

Yet the circumstances of each baby's background often remain elusive. China is the biggest source of American adoptions from overseas. Last November, authorities in Hunan province uncovered a baby-selling scheme run by a trader charging $100 a newborn. In a separate case last year, duffel bags containing 28 baby girls were discovered on a bus, the infants heavily sedated to keep them from crying.

Vermont's governor says more than 20,000 e-mails, phone calls and letters have poured into his office in response to a state judge's 60-day sentence for a child rapist who admitted abusing a young girl over a period of four years.

Gibbs said it's unlikely Cashman can be impeached, because the state's statute has a "very high standard." A judge cannot be removed for a poor decision, he explained, but only for an egregious breach of the law or ethics. The state's House of Representatives is considering a non-binding resolution urging Cashman to resign.

The last eight weeks for the city's child welfare agency have been, by any measure, grim and jarring: four children dead, all from families known to the agency.

One because of what prosecutors have called criminal neglect, others allegedly killed outright by their parents. All died in Brooklyn. Now, with this week's death of a 7-year-old girl - the circumstances of which bear a striking resemblance to that of the 6-year-old child whose case a decade ago set off an overhaul of the child welfare system - the agency's own statistics indicate there may have been warning signs of trouble building for months.

REDDING - A probation search in Mountain Gate unearthed what appeared to be a boxed methamphetamine lab, the Redding Police Department said.

While investigators were on the scene, Tyler Christopher Schweizer, 20, of Mountain Gate, and Chaundra Mae Wilson, 24, of Weaverville, arrived in a stolen vehicle, the RPD said. Four children, ages 4 to 10, were taken into protective custody by Child Protective Services and the Drug Endangered Children Program, the RPD said.
