    Britain has tried to make good by one of its most famous sons, posthumously pardoning Alan Turing for a gay sex conviction which tarnished the brilliant career of the code breaker credited with helping win the war against Nazi Germany and laying the foundation for the computer age. One author said he hoped Tuesday’s symbolic act—the famous mathematician committed suicide more than 50 years ago—would send a message to countries such as India and Russia, where gays can still be prosecuted for expressing their sexuality. Others say the pardon doesn’t go far enough, noting that thousands of others shared in...

Mr. Biden travels to the University of New Hampshire on Monday to discuss new Education Department instructions, issued on Monday, to public school districts, colleges and universities about their responsibilities under civil rights laws to prevent sexual violence. “Sexual violence can happen to anyone, and it happens at the best colleges,” Mr. Biden said in a statement. “Very few report the crime to law...

    Victor Nunez is an illegal alien from Mexico. Two years after arriving in the United States, he was convicted of petty theft for shoplifting. Then, he was convicted of a much more serious crime: He exposed himself in public. But even that wasn’t enough to have him removed from the country.   After a decade of his illegal presence, the Department of Homeland Security finally brought immigration charges to remove him from the United States. Crimes of “moral turpitude,” like exposing your genitals to children, are supposed to result in certain deportation.     The Immigration Judge denied his application, and the Board of...

Usually the trouble that follows has to do with bank or credit fraud, but Wheeler says his identity was stolen by a sex offender who was arrested and used Wheeler's name as an alias. "It's been absolutely miserable," said Wheeler. About five years ago the Port Orchard man was stopped for making an illegal left turn.

    San Antonio City Council will be asked today to create what are called ‘prostitution free corridors’ to crack down on the activity in areas where prostitutes are known to frequent. Southeast side Councilwoman Jennifer Ramos says the proposal, which will be floated before the council’s Governance Committee, would designate areas where police and law enforcement will focus on rooting out prostitution. “I want to see if there is a similar way we could attack prostitution, similar to the way we have attacked gang activity in certain parts of town,” Ramos said. Under the District Attorney’s successful gang injunction program, gang...

    (Newser) – USA Swimming has been rocked by the disclosure that 36 coaches have been banned for life for molesting teen athletes over the last 10 years, according to a suit brought by victims' families. Coaches secretly videotaped, fondled, and were otherwise indecent with their charges, court papers reveal. One coach in Indiana set up a camera in a "special" shower room and secretly filmed his athletes while they bathed, ABC News reports. In some cases, the itinerant coaching lifestyle allowed predators to stay one step ahead of authorities and victims' families. Another coach, who was sentenced to 40 years...

    DHS Child Sex Sting Official Is A Democrat Earlier today we listed some of the strong reaction to the arrest of Department of Homeland Security deputy press secretary Brian J. Doyle for attempting to arrange sexual relations with what he believed to be a 14-year-old female. Much of the reaction was critical of the Bush administration for not properly vetting one of their appointees. That assessment is dead wrong. Brian Doyle is a career civil servant - NOT a political appointee. Government workers aren't "vetted." Doyle, as a DHS employee probably has a secret or top secret government clearance, but...

    (06-15) 07:12 PDT Binghamton, N.Y. (AP) -- A group of convicted sex offenders has filed suit claiming a local law making it illegal for them to live or travel almost anywhere within city limits is unconstitutional.

The law, passed last month, prohibits moderate- and high-risk registered sex offenders from living or traveling within a quarter-mile of any public or private school, day-care center, playground or park. The lawsuit was filed Monday in federal court by Legal Services of Central...

    FREMONT, Calif. - The name on the birth certificate was Edward Araujo Jr., but the teenager preferred the first name Gwen.

This week, Araujo's family asked a court for a posthumous name change to Gwen Amber Rose Araujo. "She's Gwen to me, and I'm her mother," Sylvia Guerrero said outside the courthouse. "This is who she was. She's transgender and she's Gwen." Superior Court Commissioner Thomas Surh called...

The district court sentenced Hsu, known as Tri Chih-hao in his Buddhist name, to 12 years in jail on February 21, 2001. Hsu was...
