Utah Mormon activist to learn fate in coming days: Salt Lake Tribune

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 13:41
By Peg McEntee SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - A prominent Mormon activist who faces possible excommunication after going against the church by supporting same-sex marriage and questioning doctrine is set to learn his fate "in the coming" days, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. John Dehlin, founder of the Mormon Stories website and podcast, has drawn supporters and the attention of church leaders who fear his work could unduly influence the faithful. A disciplinary council met privately for three hours with Dehlin and his wife, Margi, in North Logan, a city about 85 miles (137 km) north of Salt Lake City, the paper said. Eric Dawkins, a spokesman for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as the Mormons are officially known, declined to comment when reached on Monday.

California educator gets 10 years for sex abuse

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 13:01
(Reuters) - A California educator who resigned after a woman accused her in a YouTube video of abusing her when she was a 12-year-old student was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday, prosecutors said. The former teacher, Andrea Michelle Cardosa, pleaded guilty last month to three counts of lewd acts with a child in a deal that spared her from a possible life sentence, said Riverside County District Attorney's Office spokesman John Hall. The case grew out of a video posted on YouTube last February in which a woman confronted Cardosa, accused her of abuse, and said she had ruined her childhood. In the video, Cardosa expresses regret and says the abuse was not anything she had intended.
