Stephen Hailes - Jilted Lover Seeks Revenge By Hacking Into Email; Forwarding Nude Photos

Matson, Gloucester, UK ( The Weekly Vice ) -- Stephen Hailes, a 48 year old unemployed former tree surgeon has pleaded guilty and faces jail time after he logged into his online lover's Hotmail account and forwarded her nude pictures to everyone in her email contacts list.

Hailes is a lover scorned and sought revenge. He admits it, but can't understand what all the fuss is about.

Hailes had a hot online romance going with Karen Parker, a married mother of two who he had met in an online chat room over the summer of 2007. Parker had shared a number of saucy photos of herself with him, including several nude photos.

Reportedly, the two became close, and not only exchanged numbers, but Parker also shared her Hotmail password with Hailes.

Hailes helped himself, logging into Parker's email only to find that she was also flirting with other men. Hailes became upset and claims he called the woman's husband to discuss the activities of his wayward wife. He wanted her husband to "realize what sort of woman his wife was".

According to Hailes, the husband didn't believe his story, so he promptly logged into Parker's email account in an effort to forward Parker's husband the nude photos. [Wait, didn't he previously claim to already have been sent these photos?]

Hailes successfully sent out Parker's nude photos - but to every person in Parker's contacts list. Parker became aware of Hailes' backfiring attempt at revenge when friends emailed her, asking why she had sent them nude photographs of herself. It was then that Parker contacted police.

"I sent her flowers and a card and she still ignored me. Then I saw in her emails that she had been seeing other men and I just flipped," explained Hailes. "It really was a silly thing to do. I thought we may have something special together at one point," he added.

"It was a silly mistake. I was jealous and upset, but I honestly never meant to hurt anyone," Hailes said following a lengthy pout, complaining that it's unfair that he might go to jail.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We seriously recommend that stickboy Hailes count his blessings. Jail would be a much kinder result than receiving the business end of a shotgun; the alternative solution some husbands insist on after catching a dude meddling in his marriage.

We cut out a large portion of the man's pecker shriveling bouts of self pity because we simply couldn't stand to read his blather any longer. Please go here if you would like to self abuse yourself with more of this man's languishing remarks.

Eric Gahagen - Unsuspecting Mom Finds 27 Year Old Man Hiding In Teen Daughter's Bed

Bedford, Texas ( The Weekly Vice ) -- Eric Gahagen, a 27 year old man from Pennsylvania was arrested after the mother of a 14 year old girl found Gahagen hiding in her teen daughter's bed.

At about 9:30 p.m. Monday night, the teen girl's mother went into the girl's bedroom and became suspicious. She got the children out of the house and called police while the husband guarded the girl's bedroom until police arrived.

According to reports, investigators believe that the teen and Gahagen met online in a chat room about eight months ago. They formed a friendship by text messaging and calling each other until finally arranging to meet last weekend, according to police.

Gahagen then had a friend drive him over 1,000 miles from Central City, Pennsylvania to the girl's home in Bedford. It is believed that the man arrived around 6:00, and climbed through the teen's second-story window without her parent's knowledge. The teen apparently hid the man for over 24 hours in the bedroom until the mother caught on to the scheme.

Police have also accused Gahagen of having sex with the teen. They believe Gahagen and the teen had sex Monday after the girl returned home from school, just hours before the police were contacted.

Gahagen claims that he thought the girl was 20 years old, according to a police statement. Bedford police reject that claim, pointing out that the child's bedroom appeared to be that of a 14 year old and that the teen doesn't look anything like a 20 year old. Police also pointed out the fact that that the girl went to school the next morning, a fact Gahagen couldn't have overlooked.

Gahagen was taken to the Bedford County Jail and was released on a $50,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

I think police should certainly throw one more charge at this creme puff. He is certainly guilty of serious stupidity. How on God's green earth would anyone expect to hide this Super-Size-Me tub of marshmallow goo anywhere in a kid's room, let alone in her bed. Isn't that something like trying to put a blanket over a Wookie, expecting no one to notice the lump?

I'm a little disappointed with Dad however, who would have been PERFECTLY within his rights to wake the snoozing lump with a few good cracks over the head with a baseball bat. I would imagine he'll be kicking himself for missing THAT opportunity for a long time to come.

Ryan Kropp - Avenging Cook Stuffs Pubic Hair Into Customer's Steak

West Bend, Wisconsin ( The Weekly Vice ) -- Ryan R. Kropp, a 24 year old cook at the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant in West Bend, Wisconsin has been arrested and charged with a felony charge of 'placing foreign objects in edibles.'

What was the foreign object, and why did he place them in some one's food? Read on.

Kevin Hansen was enjoying a night out at a local steakhouse with family and friends Saturday Night, when every customer's worst nightmare occurred.

He had ordered a steak medium rare, however it was overcooked to medium. When the dining room manager stopped by his party's table to check on everyone, Hansen brought the overcooked steak to the manager's attention.

Hansen didn't expect another steak, as he didn't want to wait an additional 15 to 20 minutes before he could eat. The manager insisted however that he take a new steak home with him. Hansen accepted.

The next day, an aggravated Hansen brought the steak to the local police, complaining of a foreign object that was buried in the center of the steak. The Police officer observed what he described as "several strands of what appeared to be hair coming out of the middle of the steak," according to the documented complaint.

When police confronted Kropp about the incident, Kropp admitted to placing the hair into the food, stating that he felt the customer was "just trying to get free stuff." Kropp claimed that he placed a few facial hairs into the steak, however a witness from the restaurant told cops a different story. A kitchen employee who worked with Kropp told police that Kropp slit the steak open and placed something inside, bragging "These are my pubes."

The second employee witness also stated that the vengeful cook complained "f***ing bastard, made me cook a whole new steak."

Restaurant management has announced that both Kropp and the other kitchen worker have both been terminated [duh] and expressed shock and anger towards the kitchen workers for putting the restaurant's good name at jeopardy with such "reckless" behavior.

The restaurant however continues to refer to the hair as "facial" hair - so we suspect it hasn't truly come clean about the whole incident (we keep looking at Kropps mugshot, and still haven't seen the kind of facial hair that would draw every one's attention).

Kropp was processed and released on a $10,000 bond. He is expected to appear in court on March 26th at Washington County Circuit Court.

Melissa R. Moss - Catholic School Teachers Get Naughty Too

Dardenne Prairie, Mo ( The Weekly Vice ) -- Melissa R. Moss, a 27 year old former teacher at Barat Academy in Dardenne Prairie has been charged with furnishing pornographic material to a minor after she emailed nude photos of herself to a 15 year old student.

Barat school officials say that Moss was fired last year, just 14 weeks after the Catholic school first opened. They also said the issue surfaced when parents of a 15 year old student of the school checked the boy's email and complained to school administrators.

Moss' attorney, Michael Kielty has claimed that he doesn't believe Moss committed a crime. When pressed to explain why sending nude photos to a minor wasn't a crime, he basically played dead - claiming to have never seen the evidence.

St. Charles County Prosecutor Jack Banas said that Moss has been charged with a misdemeanor by furnishing pornographic material to a minor and that the circumstances were unusual. "The allegation is that she essentially sent photographs of herself in an undressed manor in questions through the Internet," Banas said.

Barat school officials have participated in many interviews, noting that a thorough background check had been conducted and that Moss came to the school with letters of recommendation of the 'highest regard'.

News service articles, forums and a Facebook page carrying the story have all received multiple postings from students who have expressed support for Moss. Comments range from defending her to missing her and wanting her back at the school.

Professor Faces 180 Lashes and Eight Months Rotting In Prison For Having Coffee With Student

Saudi Arabia (The Weekly Vice) -- A University psychology professor from Umm al-Qra University has been sentenced to 180 lashes and eight months in jail. What was his crime? He had a cup of coffee with a student.

Caught in a Saudi honey-trap, an entrapment technique for punishing those who have contact with someone of the opposite sex, the man was framed by the religious police after he angered some of the members at a training course, according to the accused man's attorney.

Contact between unrelated sexes, directly or in many cases indirectly is strictly prohibited in Saudi Arabia. The Religious police, which are authorized by the Saudi Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, are charged to monitor the public and enforce a strict translation of Islam.

While local media have not broadcast the professor's name, some journalists have identified Dr. Abu Ruzaiz, a highly respected husband and father, as the intended target who will soon face the beating.

According to the man's attorney, Ruzaiz received a phone call from a student who requested help with a class related question. Ruzaiz agreed, provided the student was accompanied by her brother. When the professor arrived, the girl was alone. Within moments, Ruzaiz was surrounded by the religious police who reportedly hid in wait.

It is believed the professor irked some of the Commission's staff by teaching his students the value of being polite in public. Some of the trainees also sought revenge for failing the professor's course and/or receiving low marks on their exams.

This case follows a long history of cases where extreme punishments are dolled out under non-tangible or questionable evidence. In some cases, there is no evidence outside of the eyewitness account of the religious police.

One such case involves a Saudi woman, Fawzi Falih, who had been sentenced to beheading, after an accuser alleged she made him impotent through witchcraft.

Last week, the religious police arrested 57 young men who were arrested for wearing improper clothing and dancing as a means to attract females.

A teenage victim of a gang rape was sentenced to 200 lashes because she had been in an unrelated man's car at the time.

A spokesman for the Commission in Mecca denied that his officials had conspired against the professor. “They are honourable people and would not create such a trap for any kind of personal revenge,” Ahmad Kasim Al-Ghamdi, told Arab News, a local paper.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

The next time your boss gripes at you for being late or some other reason, just remember that in some countries you are beaten half to death for doing your job. And ladies, next time your man can't get his willy up, have patience. In some countries they'll saw the woman's head off as punishment for the man's embarrassment.

But on a more serious note, keep in mind the kind of mentality our boys overseas are up against as media outlets insult their progress and ignore their sucesses.

In the upcoming elections, as politicians try to convince you that the threat of terrorism is a tired old argument, just remember - this brand of insanity knows no limits, does not get tired, does not change it's mind and does not quit.

Since Islamic extremist consider this kind of justice as being God's law, they insist that it applies to everyone. There is no option of believing or no believing it. Break the rule, your head is lopped off. If you irritate them, your back will be turned to hamburger meat. While it seems to be rather distant and unreal - be assured it's real, persistent, unrelenting and spreading.

Enjoy your coffee. =)

Karla-Ray Morris - Wife And Mother Flirts Her Way To Bigger Boobs

Ft. McMurray, Alberta (The Weekly Vice) -- Karla-Rae Morris, a 26 year old married mom from Alberta Canada is getting a boob job, thanks to male friends she has befriended through a website designed to solicit donations for the procedure.

The website Morris used to attain this accomplishment is www.myfreeimplants.com. The goal of the site is to join together women who wish to have beast enlargements or other cosmetic surgery done together with benefactors who are willing to finance the desired augmentation.

Why would anyone do that? Yes, there's a catch. In exchange for donations, the women are expected to set up a profile and begin corresponding with potential donors in an effort to solicit donations from them. This activity includes treating the donor to one on one chats, emails, her personal photos and personal videos. Yes, such photo exchanges can and regularly do involve nudity, although it's not required of the girls.

Morris attributes most of her assistance (and it's argued who is actually assisting who) to a 'hand-full' of regular donors. She gives the largest part of the credit to two men specifically. A “happily married American man with money to spare” and an "Australian man who’s not bad looking," said Morris. “I became good friends with them, as good as you can over the Internet,” she explained. [of course she did].

“It’s like donating to any charity. You feel like you’re doing good,” Morris explained. “When you’re donating to starving kids in Africa, you’re never going to see those kids eat and you’re never going to meet. Obviously, this is not as important as helping starving kids in Africa, but it’s the same basis. They want to help us out.”

Thanks to Morris' benefactors, Morris now plans to have her implants added this spring.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Giving this much thought, we know that most folks will scorn the woman for shelving the integrity of her marriage in a quest to improve her sex appeal.

We see it differently. Great for her! She's been able to neuter her husband, have a fling and get and $8,000 boob job all at once! Fantastic role model for her kids - as they now know the value of a good rack and have a firm sense of how to set goals and achieve them!

Nassau County, Fla (The Weekly Vice) -- Tammy Renee Ogletree a 42 year old resident of Easton Georgia and her daughter Amanda Renee Coker of Yulee were arrested after investigators say the duo embezzled and stole nearly a million dollars from a Nursery.

Investigators say Ogletree embezzled about $600,000 and then stole another $350,000 in deposits from the Yulee nursery. Police say it was Ogletree that actually stole the money and that her daughter covered up the theft by manipulating company computer records.

She was basically was running a scam -- an embezzlement -- to cover up her own schemes and be able to commit a crime," said Nassau County Sheriff Tommy Seagraves.

Police allege that Ogletree took signed blank checks that were intended to purchase business supplies, and then wrote them to herself, pocketing between $5,000 and $10,000 each time.

"This money was actually being used to spend on their own necessities and needs but as well as going out to dinner and doing whatever. She was supporting everybody in the family off of the stolen money," Seagraves said.

The daughter has been charged with burglary and offense against computer user and is being held in the Nassau County Jail on a $110,004 bond. Ogletree is being held at the Putnam County Jail in Georgia on a $500,002 bond. It is expected that she will be extradited back to Florida to face charges there.

James Vidito - Shoplifter Resists Arrest, Claiming It Was Just A Dare

Framingham, MA (The Weekly Vice) -- James Vidito, a 20 year old resident was arrested for theft when he attempted to shoplift a $100 pair of boots. He objected to the arrest however, claiming that it was all a misunderstanding and that his attempted theft was merely a prank.

When police arrived at the store, they found Vidito fighting with security personnel who were assisted by two customers who were required to keep Vidito from fleeing.

The security officer on duty said that Vidito grabbed a pair of Timberland boots off the shelf, put them on, boxed up his old shoes and put them back on the shelf. He then tried to walk out of the store.

When store security attempted to stop him, they say Vidito resisted. "He tried to run and he pushed the security officer as he tried to run away," said the security officer. "Two other shoppers helped. He bit the security officer on the arm, but did not injure him. He tried biting the officer on the hand, but he missed."

Vidito, claims that earlier in the day he met several men who dared him to steal the boots, although he could not identify the men and didn't know who they were.

Vidito has been charged with theft, assault/battery and disorderly conduct. Police later found Vidito in possession of marijuana that they found in his pocket which resulted in another charge of possession.

After pleading guilty, Vidito was released from jail without bond pending a March court appearance for sentencing.

Moses Rogers Jr. - Police Charge Man With Animal Abuse For Insulting Police Dog

Stuart, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Keeping with it's tradition of acting completely childish, Florida police give it another whirl. Stuart police arrested and charged a man with cruelty to animals after the man yelled an obscenity at a police dog, which was being held in the back of a patrol car with the window rolled up.

Police say that Moses Rogers Jr, who faces another charge of disorderly conduct, yelled an obscene statement as he walked past the patrol car. This, they claim, caused the dog's behavior to become overloaded, thus tormenting the dog.

They also say that Rogers became irate when an officer went to talk to him and ask for identification, drawing the attention of bystanders.

Rogers was taken into custody, processed and then released from Martin County Jail on a $750 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Sure he became a little irate. While the man may be immature for insulting a dog, it's a far stretch of the imagination to call it animal abuse. Those who read this blog might notice that a lot of the crazy cop stories we report on seem to come out of Florida. We wish the dog much success in the months of therapy that lies ahead. We suggest the patrol officer join the dog in that therapy.

Bradley Dieffenbacher - Online Predator Strikes 8 Middle School Students

Queens, NY (The Weekly Vice) -- Bradley Dieffenbacher, a 32 year old middle school math teacher has been arrested and charged after police say Dieffenbacher had inappropriate online relationships with minors that may have included sexual contact.

But hold on, don't let the word "online" dampen the effect. According to police, Dieffenbacher had sexually explicit conversations with eight of his 12 and 13 year old boy students. He also directed them to porn sites and allegedly used a webcam to watch one of the boys masturbate to his instructions.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said that Dieffenbacher was arrested over the weekend and charged with use of a child in a sexual performance. He was arraigned on Saturday under a 16 count criminal complaint which included the following:

One count of use of a child in a sexual performance. Eight counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Three counts of attempted use of a child in a sexual performance. Three counts of attempted promoting of a sexual performance of a child and one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child.

"The charges are very disturbing," said Brown. "A teacher is accused of preying on the young students he is entrusted to teach. A classroom should always be a safe place for a child."

Dieffenbacher, who resigned his teaching position (duh) is being held on a $150,000 bond. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in the state prison.

The Weekly Vice Reaction:

Parents who read The Vice regularly or even on occasion already know there are some sickos out there who strive to lure their kids into the twisted carnal amusements of adults. Most however take the Internet more lightly, feeling like it's a duty to give children some space. Stories like this (and this is just one of many) should give you a strong reason to re-examine that assessment. If anything, it should give you a purpose to peek in on their online activities at least a little more often.

Recently I read a widely distributed report from PBS, which sought to downplay the dangers of online predators by calling the issue 'overblown'.

You can read this crock of horse-shit HERE, however I'd love to confine the author of that article to Mr. Dieffenbacher's cell, so Dieffenbacher could show this 'expert' what it's like to be a victim.

It only takes one assault to bring a child a lifetime of confusion, regret, sexual dysfunction and shattered self esteem. Here, in one single case, we have eight lives that will be subject to the "overblown" realities of online predators. And by the way Anastasia (the author), if you're listening.... Send me an email if you ever wish to debate the issue. You'll lose.

Be safe and never view your oversight of a child's online activities as an intrusion.

Abbiejane Swogger - Police Crash Teacher's Teen Sex Party

New Kensington, Pa. (The Weekly Vice) -- Abbie-Jane Swogger, a 34 year old former teacher's aid at Highlands High School who was caught throwing a party for several students, faces increasingly serious charges as the investigation continues.

In February, we reported on Swogger's case when she was first arrested. At that time, the case appeared on the surface to be simple party with minors - which was enough to get her arrested. But a handful of of clues led us to believe that this case was about to explode, and indeed it has.

Swogger, who is a former exotic dancer and mother of two has has been accused of renting a room at the Clarion Hotel, where police found alcohol, crack cocaine and several students. One parent spent a whole evening driving around town searching for her daughter, which aided in alerting police toSwogger's behavior.

New Kensington police recently charged Swogger with felony crack cocaine possession, corruption of minors and intent to deliver. When police arrived at Swoggers home to arrest her for the new charges, they found the same 17 year old boy hiding in her bedroom that had been in the hotel room the night she was arrested there.

A New Kensington police report said two teenage girls who were at the party, one of them 15, left the high school early Friday. Both of them were runaways from Tarentum and Harrison Township, according to police.

A mother of one of the girls at the party had no sympathy for Swogger's arrest. "Someone in that room gave my daughter marijuana. She did admit to that. I think she should get what's coming to her, however the law requires. She should get the fullest extent of punishment." she said.

And now the other shoe is about to drop!

New Kensington police are now saying that Swogger lured two teenage girls to her hotel room in hopes of getting the drunk and high - in an attempt to get them to have sex with her. Police also say that Swogger had sex with one of the teenage boys from the party (the boy who was later found hiding in Swogger's bedroom when they arrested her just weeks ago).

Here is our initial report on the case:

New Kensington, Pa (The Weekly Vice) -- Abbiejane Swogger, a 34 year old teacher's aid at Highlands High School in Natrona Heights, Pa. was arrested after police caught her in the throws of a party which involved several teenagers including her son.

Formal charges are still pending, however Swogger is facing allegations of renting a hotel room where police found beer, marijuana and an open condom wrapper.

Police say that several teens including boys and girls showed up to the party that included Swogger's 15 year old son and his friends.

Swogger claims that she rented the hotel room with a girlfriend but that when her son and his friends happened along, she didn't turn them away.

Swogger denies rumors that are circulating at her school which accuse her of having sexual relationships with students there. Authorities say they are continuing to investigate the complex case.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This is the story that keeps on giving. At Swogger's hearing, the courtroom was filled with teens ready to testify against the former teacher's aid.

Swogger had already been under investigation by the school, after rumors spread of her alleged trysts with one of the male students attending the same school.

This being the case, it really insults the imagination to think a teacher didn't think she'd be caught setting up drug and sex romp party with multiple students.

Her attorney insists they will fight the charges - but we honestly don't see how on earth her story is going to hold water now, particularly when she seems to be continuing her behavior with the male student even after her initial arrest. This may well qualify as one of the most unbelievable teacher/student sex romps we've seen in quite awhile.

What bothers us about this story is the fact that there are several parents here who are having a hard time getting their teens under some kind of control. Here we have a teacher exploiting that difficulty - and apparently adding to it in additional to her own self gratifications.

Beth Morgan Sex Scandal - She's A Man Eater

Canberra, Australia (The Weekly Vice) -- Oh here she comes. Watch out boy she'll chew you up. Oh here she comes. She's a man eater. Here's a story in which the popular 80s Hall and Oats song 'Man Eater' couldn't describe more accurately. It's a sex scandal that is rocking Australia.

Beth Morgan, a 32 year old Wollongong Australia city planner was caught by an undercover sting by investigators who are unraveling a series of sexual relationships Ms. Morgan had with three developers in exchange for favors and gifts.

Morgan, who is a single mom is accused of approving millions of pounds worth of illegal buildings in return for lavish gifts and flings with developers.

While Morgan has been sacked by her council employer last year for 'serious misconduct', the full impact of her tangled web of sexual exploits are continuing to unfold in a courtroom before the Independent Commission Against Corruption.

Morgan has earned the nick name "The Mile High-Rise Girl". The name stuck after one of the developers she was involved with her accused her of being on a 'mission for sex'. While two developers have admitted affairs with her, a third suspected developer has denied having more than a friendship with Morgan.

The case also involves a couple of con men who attempted to blackmail Morgan and the developers out of tens of thousands of pounds in exchange for their silence about the scandal.
The commission is now exploring the possibility of corruption among ministers in the government in connection with four major South Wales building projects worth more than £63million. Four state ministers have been indirectly linked by the ICAC to central figures in the furore.

Corruption investigators have collected phone records, documenting hundreds of hours of evening and weekend phone conversations between Morgan and her 'friends'. They have acquired photographs of Morgan with the men she pursued and obtained copies of emails and messages. Cash payments, cameras, expensive handbags, vacations and junkets make up some of the gifting, the ICAC heard in testimony.

The Morgan case has captivated Australians who don't commonly hear about corruption scandals within their government, let alone one that centers on the lurid details of sexual relationships among them.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Welcome to the club Australia. Nice to have you mates aboard the Scandal Express with the rest of the world.

Angry Muslims Attack Doritos - Jihad?

World - February 08 (The Weekly Vice) -- Muslims are outraged at Doritos brand tortilla chips. Will they declare Jihad? At minimum, they'll boycott it.

Muslims are criticizing the manufacturer of Doritos, after it has come to light that a couple of it's varieties contain minute chemical traces of alcohol as a means of extracting more flavor from the chip. The consumption of alcohol is forbidden in Islam, which includes the use of alcohol in cooking.

The issue originated when a Muslim shopkeeper who says that a customer informed him of the conspiracy problem.

"A customer informed us that Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli and Doritos Chilli Heat Wave are not on Walkers' alcohol-free list. Our suppliers were unaware of this," explained Besharat Rehman, the shopkeeper. "Even if it is a trace amount of alcohol, Walkers should make it clear on the packaging so that the customer can make an informed choice. I feel frustrated and angry," he also added.

Rehman isn't alone in his outrage, as even a chairman of the the Muslim Council of Britain lambasted Doritos. "Certainly we would find it very offensive to have eaten food with alcohol," said Shuja Shafi who chairs the committee.

Masood Khawaja of the Halal Food Authority also criticized saying, "They should have looked into the matter and solved it instead of hiding behind labelling regulations. It does not matter what percentage of alcohol is involved."

Doritos Fires Back

A Walkers spokesperson disputed the attack saying that trace amounts of alcohol in crisps or bread are believed to be permissible for Muslims.

"We do not add alcohol to our products. However, ethyl alcohol may be present in trace amounts in a very small number of our flavors.

"It is used as a carrying agent for flavorings and is found in many common food and drink products. Foods like bread can also contain the same or higher trace amounts due to fermentation. We are aware of the concerns from some Muslim consumers about the appropriateness of specific ingredients. We take the concerns of our consumers extremely seriously."

"In previous assessments by Muslim scholars, foods and drinks that contain trace amounts of ethyl alcohol have been confirmed as permissible for Muslim consumption because of both the fact that the ingredient does not bear its original qualities and does not change the taste, colour or smell of the product, and its very low level."

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

It's getting pretty pathetic when you must first become an expert on every religion on the planet, before you put a product on the market. Many are calling for a COMPLETE list of every chemical compound that exists in a product, but that is truly impossible.

One single ingredient could be broken down into dozens of other ingredients or chemical compounds. Water, a common ingredient in almost everything can be broken down into compounds. Most water is treated with chemicals like chlorine. There's another dozen chemical compounds for you. Do you really want to know every single chemical trace that exists in the oil used to cook everything? Are you willing to pay extra for the packaging that would be required to accomodate the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of potential trace elements in every single product?

Hopefully Doritos will just add the products to their "not alcohol free" list and be done with it. But the mere existence of such a list, is already an indication that the company is striving to provide culturally relevant information about it's products.

Lisa Schuchard - Mother Teaches Four-Year-Old How To Smoke Pot

Omaha, NE (The Weekly Vice) -- Lisa Schuchard, a 25 year old Omaha resident was arrested and charged with felony child abuse after police visited her home and found drugs and a shotgun within reach of children.

Police say they found a shotgun next to the couch that the children were sitting on. They also discovered baggies, marijuana residue and a marijuana pipe on a coffee table. But what happened next amazed them most. Schuchard's 4 year old daughter demonstrated for police how to properly smoke pot, explaining to them that her mother had taught her how.

According to investigators, Schuchard and her live-in boyfriend Chris admitted to regularly smoking marijuana and the 4 year old told investigators that Schuchard regularly offered marijuana to her and her 2 year old brother.

Police became aware of the situation when Child Protective Services received a complaint that the 4-year-old and a 2-year-old son of Schuchard were dirty and living in a filthy home that had drug paraphernalia around. The children have now been placed with a foster family pending the investigation.

You can visit Schuchard's MySpace page, which she describes herself as a "proud parent".

Steve Warshak - Meet Bob. Bob Is Going To Jail. Bob No Longer Swells With Pride

Cincinnati, OH (The Weekly Vice) -- Steve Warshak, the 40 year old owner of the company that sells Enyte, a supposed "male enhancement" tablet has been convicted of conspiricy, bank fraud and money laundering.

According to prosecutors, Berkely Premium Nutraceuticals, the company that sells Enzyte, used a series of deceptive ads which feature a smiling "Bob" who 'swells with pride' after the use of the debunked tablet. The advertising also claims an improved sexual performance with it's use.

Prosecutors also say that consumers were 'bilked' out of millions of dollars when the company manipulated credit card transaction and refused to provide refunds for returned merchandise and/or cancelled orders. Former employees have testified that the company created fake doctors and doctor endorsements to promote the product.

Warshak, the company's owner now faces up to 20 years in prison and awaits sentencing.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This finding should debunk the entire male enhancement industry which thrives on cheezy commercials and dorky infomercials. We should add a strong cautionary note here however that Enzyte is FAR from being unique in it's sales practices. Refusal to refund a consumer's money on a cancelled or returned order has become almost common-place among pay by phone retailers. The list is far far to lengthy to even begin here.

We're going to provide a link here that should be in EVERY person's favorites.

Before spending a single penny over the phone with any company, we highly recommend that you research it's consumer complaint history over at www.ripoffreport.com . This is an collective database of scam alerts which has become the authority on potential scams in our opinion.

"This is his absolute favorite toy, So we've been going through a lot of hassle because he's trying to climb up the counter and up the closets to get it," she added.

Marque Buckley - Woman Climbs Into Fire Truck; Refuses To Get Out

Merrimack, N.H. (The Weekly Vice) -- Marque Buckley, a 20 year old woman from Belmont, New Hampshire was arrested after committing a number of strange incidences that led up to climbing into firetruck and refusing to come out.

Now, Buckley faces multiple charges that police say began earlier in the day with an attempted robbery at a gas station. Police say Buckley took three packs of cigarettes from the convenience store and tried to leave without paying.

"As the suspect got into her vehicle, the clerk said she either had to return the cigarettes or pay for them," Police Sgt. Maureen Tessier said. "The woman refused, and the clerk actually reached for the cigarettes, and the suspect closed the door on her arm several times, trying to break the grip," she added.

According to police, Buckley then drove to a nearby fire station, claiming that her car had broken down. "While in the fire station, the female started to go through the station and actually entered onto one of the computers. She was asked to leave."

Buckley refused to leave, but instead climbed into a fire truck and attempted to start it. "She became upset and ran into one of the fire engines, attempting to start it," Capt. Peter Albert said. "One of the firemen jumped in and was able to get the keys and eventually called us."

Buckley now faces multiple charges, including a felony count of robbery. She is being held on a $15,000 bond.

She's Crazy, But Is She Hot?

Colleen K. Solberg - Special Education Teacher Sexually Assaults Former Student


This case has reportedly been dismissed due to the prosecution's inability to get the alleged victim to testify

Original Report:

Iowa City, IA (The Weekly Vice) -- Collene K Solberg, a 38 year old special eduction teacher at Iowa City West High School was arrested and charged Feb. 21st with committing lascivious acts on a minor.

Authorities contend that Solberg had sexual contact with a 17 year old male student between the months of June 2007 through September of 2007.

Solberg, who is no longer with the district, passed notes and poems to the student and later bought him a cell phone to use. The student has also moved to a different school and didn't attend this school when the affair occurred. Police were alerted by the victim's family in November, according to authorities in the case.

The student was not below Iowa's age of consent laws. Authorities explain that charges were filed because Solbergs teacher status places her in a position of authority over the student, and her actions violate laws that outlaw contact between a student and a teacher.

West High Principal Jerry Arganbright said that Solberg worked at the school since the start of the 02-03 school year. She worked in the school’s special education Learning Center.

Solberg attended a first hearing and was released from Johnson County Jail after posting bond.

Meredith Hollen -- Guilty Child Sex Offender Walks

Denver, CO (The Weekly Vice) -- Meredith Hollen, a 40 year old former teacher at Graland Country Day School teacher who faced 12 felony counts of sexual assault on a child was convicted and sentenced. What was her punishment? PROBATION.

Hollen, who no longer resides in the state, pled guilty to sexual assault on a child by someone in a position of trust. After entering the plea, she was immediately sentenced. As part of a plea agreement, the 11 other counts of sexual assault were dismissed.

Prosecutors, aware that their arrangement with the defendant would outrage the community was quick to point out that the arrangement was made in accordance with the victim child's wishes.

"This case was very much driven by the victim's wishes," said Lynn Kimbrough, a spokesperson for the Denver District Attorney's office "This plea agreement didn't have anything to do with her gender."

"A big factor in the probationary sentence was the fact that the victim wished to remain anonymous," she said. "Because of that reason, prosecutors requested that the arrest warrant affidavit, which describes the offenses, remain closed," she added.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Well, alright then! It would appear now that under aged children now direct the outcome of criminal cases in Denver. Case closed? Well Ms. Spokesperson, that won't do.

First, victims are protected with anonymity anyhow, and if Denver prosecutors are unable to uphold the law that provides them that, they should be fired.

The whole purpose behind providing a victim an anonymous status is to 1. protect the victims privacy and 2. preserve the integrity of the case. Denver prosecutors, you failed. You failed all the way around. You failed the victim. You failed future victims and you failed the community that depends on you to protect their kids.

Now a teacher indicted on 12 counts of sexual assault on a minor not only flees the state - but avoids jail time and walks away from the crime. We're sorry. Probation is a cop out.

The Denver community should be outraged and remember this case the next time they find themselves at the polling booth. Who is the Attorney General in this state? What kind of a legal system is he presiding over - when teachers are free to assault their children, move out of state and avoid jail time?

Absolutely unacceptable!

Melissa Dean - Mom Goes On Strike; Gets Arrested For It

Ocala, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Melissa G Dean, a 43 year old Mom who's fed up with four teenage boys who won't stop fighting and clean up is FED UP. She quite literally went on strike and moved out, at least on a part time basis.

Ocala police and the Florida Department of Children and Families services didn't think very highly of her 'take this job and shove it' idea. Dean was arrested by Ocala police on Tuesday and charged with child neglect.

Dean is the mother of four boys, aged 17, 16, 14 and 13. She told a DCF official that she decided to "go on strike" because no one would help with her children, saying the police and courts would do nothing to help her.

Dean said the children needed to start cleaning up and stop fighting and that she had no control over them. Dean also said she was fed up with being run over in her own home and having no privacy, according to the court affidavit.

She hoped her actions "would open their eyes and maybe they would start cleaning up after themselves and stop fighting," She reportedly told them she wouldn't come home until they behaved themselves. She also hoped that by giving up her bedroom, the boys would have more space to themselves.

Dean who is a Walgreens manager stayed at a friend's house for the past month. She would cook meals and take them to her kids. She checked in on them and called them often according to court records.

Police were called to the home Monday because two of the boys were fighting over a computer cord and one had run to a neighbor's home who contacted authorities. The day before police went there because one of the boys broke a sliding glass door with his fist, according to police.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

From this report and others I've researched, it doesn't appear to me that the woman intended to abandon the kids, who seem to be out of control whether she was with them or not.

Arresting the woman seems to be the opposite intervention this family needs. While we normally hold little hope in Family Services for helping in most situations, this is one situation where the service might be of some good.

Florida authorities however always seem to have the wrong response for every challenge - and this seems to be a case that continues that tradition

Jacob A. Jett - Plots To Murder Parents, Parents Say He Was A Good Boy

Independence, Mo. (The Weekly Vice) -- Jacob A. Jett, an 18 year old student from Independence, Missouri was arrested in a foiled attempt to have a hit man murder his parents, according to Jackson County Missouri Prosecutors.

Police say Jett gave money and three handguns to two men with instructions to kill his parents, Richard and Robyn Parnell. He allegedly also paid $260 to the would-be hit men and provided his father's ATM card and PIN number.

A fellow student named Joseph R. Garcia introduced Jett to the hit men in January. Police became aware of the plot when one of the hit men was picked up on a parole violation and later told police about the intended scheme. Police contacted the other man Jett intended to hire to corroborate the story.

Jett and Garcia were arrested and charged with second-degree attempted murder and armed criminal action. If convicted, the attempted second-degree murder charge carries a sentence of up to 15 years in prison. The armed criminal action charge carries a sentence of up to life in prison.

Jett's parents expressed complete shock and disbelief at the attempted murder plot against them. “It came out of nowhere,” said Robyn Parnell. “He was a very good child.” She also explained that Jett was an only child and that the couple had adopted him as an infant. She also noted that he has never been in trouble before.

Police theorize that money and anger towards the parents was the motive behind the murder plot. “He thought they were too strict and wanted to inherit money," according to Jackson County prosecutor, Jim Kanatzar.

Natasha Sizow - Prosecutors Drop Charges Against Accused Teacher

Norfolk, Va (The Weekly Vice) -- The county prosecutor in Norfolk withdrew charges today against a Granby High School teacher accused of sending inappropriate pictures of herself to students.

Natasha Sizow, 24 at the time of her arrest back in February, left Norfolk Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court without commenting.

Prosecutor Jill Harris said the facts did not support the charges that Sizow faced.

Below is the original report, which we now know to be without merit.

I leave the original report up as a testament to the fact that sometimes zealous cops jump to conclusions before investigating the facts of a case - to assure the evidence bears out the charge.

Our apologies to Ms. Sizow - While we detest teachers who take advantage of students in their charge - we absolutely abhor cops who take action on a hunch without thoroughly investigating the allegations. Ruining one's reputation on charges that aren't supported by fact should be grounds for removing an investigator or police chief. In any other profession, an individual would be well within their rights to sue the other party into the ground for such nonsense.

This is quite upsetting to us here at the Weekly Vice.

Norfolk, Va (The Weekly Vice) -- Natasha L. Sizow, a 24 year old social studies teacher at Granby High School, was arrested and charged with two counts each of indecent liberties with a child and use of a communications device to facilitate crimes against children.
