Police say two 12-year-olds are charged with felony assault and misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon after they allegedly pushed a shopping cart off a fourth-floor walkway, hitting a woman in the head with the cart.

Hedges was walking with her 14-year-old son outside a Target store in East Harlem on Sunday when the cart fell on her. Her son wasn't injured. Her father-in-law, Michael Hedges, says prosecutors should throw the book at the two boys.

An Iowa grandmother has been banished to jail, including a night in isolation, after refusing to give in to a judge's demand that she submit to a psychiatric exam and take psychotropic drugs if prescribed to mitigate her opposition to abortion.

"I find it especially strange and abhorrent that a female judge would somehow think it is normal for Planned Parenthood to systematically kill babies in the womb, but abnormal for me to oppose these serial killers," the court pleading said. "Is it not hypocritical for this court to acknowledge a women's purported right in seeking medical help for destroying her child, while denying me the basic right to refuse 'medical help?'"

While Spence "was a dominant person," Clay-Jackson said, Quigley was mixed up with the wrong people as a result of an abusive childhood. Since the age of 10, Quigley was in the care of the state after being removed from her mother's home. She has been in and out of mental hospitals to cope with the abuse she faced at her mother's house and at a foster home, Clay-Jackson said. She also was introduced to drugs and alcohol at a young age.

Department of Health and Human Services are investigating four reports of a woman posing as a child protective services employee in Omaha trying to get into homes in the last two weeks. A fifth incident was reported in Holdrege.

The woman was not given permission to enter the homes after she was unable to provide identification. She stated she wanted to talk to the parent. "Incidents of people posing as DHHS employees are a serious concern," said CEO Courtney Phillips. "All DHHS employees carry a state-issued, DHHS photo identification badge and can provide a name and number to call to verify their employment."

PETERBOROUGH, Ont. -- A woman who confessed to child abuse 11 years ago in exchange for the withdrawal of a murder charge laid based on the faulty evidence of disgraced pathologist Charles Smith says authorities bullied her into falsely confessing.

In a sworn affidavit filed in Superior Court, Brenda Waudby says she was bullied into the false confession, and is seeking an appeal extension to have her conviction thrown out. Waudby was first charged with murder in the 1997 death of her 21-month-old daughter, Jenna Mellor, based on Smith's erroneous findings. -- Canada
