While vague categories like "deprivation of necessities" may save a child from abandonment by a crack mother, they also allow child-welfare agencies to fall heavily on low-income households.

The San Carlos Police Department arrested a middle-school physical education teacher who allegedly made secret videotapes of female students as they changed clothes, according to Cmdr. Sandra Spagnoli.

Neal Sato, 34, of San Bruno was arrested Tuesday on six counts of lewd acts with a child after investigators found in his computer 100 deleted files and images of girls changing into uniforms, Spagnoli said. Some of the files date to October 2004, and not all the victims have been identified, according to Spagnoli.

Months after a Texas girl was diagnosed with cancer, state authorities have decided to let her return home after a long legal battle in which Texas officials " not the girl's parents " attempted to determine her treatment.

Thirteen-year-old Katie Wernecke was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease, a cancer of the lymph nodes, in January 2005. The teenager underwent chemotherapy after being taken to the emergency room with what her parents had suspected was pneumonia, and doctors recommended she also receive radiation treatments. However, Katie's parents, Michelle and Edward Wernecke, refused the treatments for fear it could cause complications such as an increased risk of breast cancer, learning problems or stunted physical growth. That's when Texas authorities intervened, making private matters public in a way that many feel violated parental rights as well as principles of health freedom.

Next week a legislative committee will begin to try to figure out why so many children in Clark County are dying despite intervention from Child Protective Services.

Clark County maintains state law prohibits them from releasing any child's death records. In short when a child dies we can't find out why or learn what, if anything, could have prevented the death. There's no public accountability.

The deaths of Elijaha and David Jr. have also cast the county's Department of Social Services in an unforgiving light.

Dec. 15 - David Maldonado said he woke up on July 29 and laid out some donuts for his two small boys, Elijaha and David Jr., and then returned to bed in his Yonkers apartment to sleep off the effects of a bag of heroin he had shared with his girlfriend. But two hours later, Mr. Maldonado awoke again, this time to a terrifying scene: the walls were radiating steam, the hallway was flooded up to his ankles, and the bodies of the two boys were lying face-up on the bathroom floor.

After drawing attention from pro-life groups, Planned Parenthood's San Francisco affiliate removed from its website a purported letter from a girl thanking the abortion provider for helping conceal from her parents a rape that occurred when she was 11.

The American Life League's STOPP International is calling on California Attorney General Bill Lockyer to investigate, asking whether Planned Parenthood is trying to hide evidence of a crime. "Planned Parenthood acts as if it is exempt from the law," said STOPP International's executive director, Jim Sedlak.

A 22-year-old man charged earlier this year with the equivalent of statutory rape after impregnating his 13-year-old girlfriend, whom he later married, pleaded guilty yesterday to first-degree sexual assault of a child.

The defendant, Matthew Koso of Falls City, Neb., is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Daniel E. Bryan Jr. of Richardson County District Court on Feb. 7 and could face up to 50 years in prison. Mr. Koso had pleaded not guilty but decided to change his plea because he was unsure how a jury would decide the case, his mother, Peggy Koso, said in a telephone interview from the Falls City home that she and her husband share with Mr. Koso, his wife and their baby daughter, Samara.

A bogus psychologist quizzed a student about her sex life after she visited him in a bid to end her fear of getting into cars, a court heard yesterday.

David Sydney Evans pretended to be Dr David Lloyd-Evans, a world authority on child sex abuse, it was alleged. In fact he had no qualifications whatsoever, John Hipkin, prosecuting, told a jury at Swansea Crown Court.

What's 'Best For The Child' Is Secondary To 'More Federal Money'

The Department of Social Services is using financial consultants who specialize in advising the state how to aggressively "maximize federal revenue." This means that the decision as to whether to remove a child from his parents is often a factor of whether the DSS can get more federal money.
