Samoans wonder if hail storm is some kind of prank.

"Because it was so unexpected a lot of people thought it had been invented. We had to release satellite images of the conditions that led to the hail for people to believe it was real,"

Witnesses told the Miami Herald 28-year-old Stephen Gutierrez was fiddling in his pocket Wednesday while addressing jurors when smoke started billowing from his pants. At the time, he was arguing that his client’s car spontaneously combusted and wasn’t intentionally set on fire.

Wondering if there is any way an appellate attorney can use what happened as an argument to put aside the verdict.

Father who raped his gay daughter to prove ‘sex was better with men’ jailed for 21 years

A father who raped his gay daughter to prove “sex was better with men” has been jailed for 21 years.

The attack on the 16-year-old happened after she had confided to him that she was struggling with her identity – he responded with “uncontrolled” anger.

The 54-year-old has not been named to protect the victim’s identity and Warwick Crown Court heard that two other of his daughters have suffered abuse from him across two decades.
