    A former Western Albemarle High School teacher already facing charges is back in jail. Waynesboro police arrested John Daniel Patterson Jr. for child porn and solicitation of a minor. This is round two of charges for Patterson. The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office arrested Patterson in April when he thought he was talking to a 13-year-old boy, but it was actually a police sting. After his first arrest, police say they discovered Patterson did have an online relationship with a real teenager. That's what Waynesboro police arrested him for Wednesday morning.

    You might know you’re on The Huffington Post when you find an article headlined “My Son Wore a Dress for Halloween.” The author was Kelly Byrom, an “Art Director for HLN-TV and CNN.” Her son "Twirl" (a pseudonym) knocked on doors as the Disney fairy Silvermist. Like a good liberal, she fears that her son will be pressured to change: "My biggest worry is the same as C.J.'s mom, who so eloquently wrote, "I don't want my boy to want a boy costume." I don't want my son to want a boy costume just because he is afraid to be...

    An Austrian man has been accused of locking up his two mentally disabled daughters and using them as sex slaves for 41 years. Police said that the 85-year-old, who has not been named, repeatedly raped the women between 1970 and May 2011. The alleged victims are now 53 and 45 years old. The women escaped when the father was unable to get up after the older daughter pushed him over when he last tried to rape her, according to Austrian media. The sisters allegedly fled as their father lay unable to seek help for two days until he was found...

    So unfolds the latest chapter in Alec Baldwin’s ongoing flirtation with public office: The “30 Rock” actor told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer that he’s “very interested” in a political run. Of course, Baldwin knows there are plenty of obstacles in his way: He loves acting and his current state of New York is flooded with established political players. “It’s something that I’m very, very interested in,” said Baldwin in an interview set to air Wednesday night. He said what he wants to see from elected leaders is “people who have not lost sight about what the middle class in this country...

    OAKLAND - Alameda County has agreed to pay $188,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by three women who said the late leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery, Yusuf Bey, sexually assaulted them and abused them as minors after the county placed them in his home. The three women, identified in the lawsuit only as Jane Doe 1, 2 and 3, were foster children or wards of the court from 1978 to 1994 and were placed in Bey's home by county social service workers. Bey routinely raped them, defecated on them, forced them to drink his urine and semen and threatened...

    Paging Dr. Freud. Alec Baldwin may have requested last year that his ex-wife, Kim Basinger, be forced to undergo psychological evaluation, but a Los Angeles court has instead ordered the 48-year-old actor to consult a therapist before he is allowed extra visits with his 10-year-old daughter, Ireland, L.A. City News Service reported Friday. Though neither member of the estranged pair was in court today, L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Maren E. Nelson gave Baldwin a week to consider whether he would allow a sit-down with a court-appointed psychologist. Nelson said in court that she wants a professional to help judge whether...

    SALEM, N.H. -- A man dressed as Santa was arrested after he walked into a New Hampshire mall and dropped his pants in front of some teens, according to a Local 6 News report.

    The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is being accused of portraying a known child abuser as a heroic mom. That has one national radio host comparing the situation to the "Rathergate" scandal at CBS News. The controversial PBS film Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories features mothers who have purportedly lost custody of their children in divorce to physically abusive husbands. However, it has been revealed that one of the moms featured in the film has a rap sheet for child abuse. Los Angeles-based newspaper columnist Glenn Sacks has uncovered documents showing PBS chose to ignore the fact that, in 1998, a...

    JACKSBORO, Tenn. -- A Campbell County judge today sentenced Tommy Joe Owens to 95 years in prison for his abusing his 3-year-old daughter, Haley Spicer. Owens, 32, was facing 100 years. A jury was out about an hour in June before convicting Owens of three counts of aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect. Owens showed no emotion as the jurors agreed he abused Haley, who is now 4. "I think that justice was served today," Campbell County Sheriff Ron McClellan said after the trial. "I am satisfied with the outcome." Closing arguments in the trial included finger-pointing and other...

    SANTA MARIA, Calif. - In an unusual development with jury deliberations under way, the judge in the Michael Jackson case planned to release a statement Wednesday. The subject of the statement and the timing of its release were not immediately known. The jury in Jackson's child molestation case ended deliberations for the day around 2:30 p.m. They finished and left the courthouse minutes after the plan to issue a statement was announced. Word that the statement was planned came after attorneys on both sides met in chambers with Judge Rodney S. Melville, said Peter Shaplen, the news media pool coordinator...

    Pop star Moby, known for his political statements as well as his music, says he'd do everything he could to make his future child homosexual should the singer ever have a family. He's also blasting conservatives Tom DeLay, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich as "amoral/immoral" right wingers. In an interview with Planet Out, a publication geared toward homosexuals, the musician, who is not "gay," was lamenting so-called homophobia in society when he suggested his future child should be raised to be a homosexual. "As a matter of fact, I was talking to my friend Laura, who sings...
