A teenager testified in the Steubenville rape trial today that he’d personally witnessed defendant Trent Mays put his fingers inside the victim’s vagina as they drove from one party to another, and even recorded it on his cellphone—though he says he deleted the video the next morning, realizing he’d done “something stupid and wrong.” The 17-year-old testified only after the judge gave him immunity from prosecution, the AP reports. Witness accounts are crucial to the trial, because the victim doesn’t appear to remember what happened. Read more…

Rachel Braaten of Washington was arrested after this video of her giving her 22-month-old son a bong hit surfaced.”I guess it was a joke and a stupid mistake that wasn’t really funny,” the 24-year-old told authorities.
I would strongly, strongly agree with that statement. Never has a joke failed so heinously.Braaten is facing charges for delivering a controlled substance to a minor. Her fiancee Tyler Lee, the child’s father, who was not involved in the incident, facing charges of his own. Lee was arrested for selling marijuna and unlawful possession of a firearm.The 22-month-old and the couple’s 5-year-old child are in custody of the state.
This incident is a grim reminder that there are so many people out there who should not be allowed to reproduce.
Sadly, this is not the first baby bong smoking incident. Back in 2010, Rachel Stieringer was arrested for posting pics of her baby smoking a bong on Facebook. [Huffington Post]
It did NOT happen in Florida. It happened in Arkansas. Twenty-eight-year-old Jamie Craft drunkenly crashed her 2001 Pontiac Grand Am into a mobile home and tried to flee the scene of the crime in the nearest getaway car: her son’s Power Wheels truck. She was shoeless, pantsless, “pretty irate” and “very intoxicated” (her blood alcohol level was about three times the legal limit) when police caught up to her. Obviously, she didn’t get very far. Craft is facing a whole mess of charges from driving under the influence to disorderly conduct. Lesson learned. Don’t drink and drive Power Wheels. Or real cars. [Gawker]
Some guys have a hero complex. Others, have a superhero complex. Take the mysterious tights-clad man who walked into the Yorkshire Police Department last week to deliver a bad guy to officers by the scruff of his neck. Wearing a full Batman costume, the man identified himself only as Bruce Wayne.
Telling the cops, “I’ve got this one for you,” the faux-Batman escorted his catch to the quaintly-named police helpdesk at Trafalgar House. According to a police report, the man was then arrested for burglary, fraud and breach of a court order. He was detained at the station overnight and then sent to a nearby precinct where he was booked on additional charges.
As for Batman, well, nobody knows what’s become of him. Said the report, “The Batman outfit was a normal fancy dress costume and whoever had decided to put it on knew the suspect was wanted by police.” My bet’s on him holing up at Wayne Manor. [Telegraph]
Dear Brett Eric Drachenburg aka “The Sun,”
If were sitting in the same room right now, I would be giving you a slow clap. From a safe distance, of course. At least 93 million miles. When you were caught stealing a towel from a Florida home, you told the cops that you were simply trying to disguise yourself as “‘The Sun’ with intent to obstruct the due execution of the law.” Initially, authorities were confused by your explanation and thought you might be referring to The Sun Sentinel newspaper, but when the deputy asked you for your name, you replied, “The Sun.”
The Sun, l know why you stole that towel. You were trying to hide your fire from the world. Trying to protect the world from your heat. Don’t do it, The Sun. Never let anyone dull your shine, baby. Take that towel off your face and let the world have it.
Raymond Duesler of Gloversville, New York is facing sexual abuse charges for getting into a shower with a 16-year-old girl and throwing cheese at her. Of course, I know what your first question is — what kind of cheese? That detail has not been made available to the public. For some reason, I’m envisioning it being shredded cheese. Maybe cheddar. Nothing artisan. Not to make light of this abhorrent crime, I just got distracted by the cheese throwing.Why? It’s just so disgusting.
Sadly, this girl was not the only one violated by Duesler. The 55-year-old is accused of exposing his penis, showing porn to and requesting oral sex from three more underage girls. Thankfully, he is in jail awaiting trial. If there is any justice in the world, an inmate is throwing cheese at Duesler while he showers right this very minute. [CBS6 Albany]
In case you were wondering, and I know you were, breasts can be used as a weapon. Washington woman, Donna Lange has been charged with second-degree manslaughter for smothering her 51-year-old boyfriend to death with her boobs. This weekend, at a Snohomish County trailer park, neighbors called the cops when they heard a man screaming for a “woman to get off of him.” When police arrived, they found a drunk Lange on top of the man, “her chest was smothering his face.” He was pronounced dead on the scene. No word on Lange’s motives.
This is not the first time a pair of boobs almost killed a guy. In December, a German man narrowly escaped a similar fate when his ex-girlfriend nearly motorboated him to death. She claimed that she meant the him no harm — that they were only playing a “sex game.”
Let this be a lesson to us all, boobs, when used without the appropriate precautions, can be dangerous. [Local 12]
Helloooo, Florida! You’re back. And with important life lessons for us. What can we learn from 53-year-old teacher, Mary Maloney? That if you’re arrested for a hit-and-run, it’s a very bad idea to offer the police officer oral sex in return for your release. Yeah, that’s only going to make matters worse, along with that empty gallon jug of wine behind the driver’s seat. It’s not looking good for Mary Maloney. There is a time and place to offer a blowjob. This certainly was not it. [Huffington Post]

- The family of Jitka Vesel filed a lawsuit earlier this month against Armslist.com for illegally selling a gun to the man who murdered her. Vesel was shot as many as 12 times in the parking lot of a Chicago suburb by a stalker. Her murderer was not supposed to be able to legally acquire the murder weapon on Armslist.com, but was able to purchase it by paying an extra $200. [Think Progress]

PotentialProstitutes.com is a hideous new website that posts the photos, locations and phone numbers of women who it deems might be sex workers. Many of the pics appear to be mug shots, which would suggest at least some of the women featured on the site have been arrested in the past for sex work. But if you’re an extra special douchebag, you can submit random people for inclusion on Potential Prostitutes. Keep reading »
