Leslie Allen Merritt is pictured in this undated handout booking photoThe move by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office came after a judge on Tuesday reduced the bail of 21-year-old Leslie Allen Merritt Jr to nothing from $150,000, clearing the way for his release later that day. "We have a professional and ethical duty to act in the interest of justice and not merely seek a conviction and this is a textbook example of doing that," said Jerry Cobb, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.

Colorado nuns get higher fence to avoid harassment

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/23/2016 - 10:11
An order of cloistered Roman Catholic nuns won approval from a Denver suburb to build a higher fence to prevent people from entering their property to harass them, the Sisters' advocate said on Friday. The Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Colorado asked the city of Littleton to add two feet to a six-foot fence after several incidents in the last two years of people scaling the walls and trespassing on the monastery grounds, said Mike Kisting, who made the request on behalf of the Sisters. The Discalced Carmelites are among the Catholic Church's strictest contemplative orders, requiring them to spend their days in prayer and devotion, with little speaking and to live "a life of complete self-sacrifice," according to their website.
