Two California teachers plead not guilty in sex with student case

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 08:16
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Two Los Angeles-area teachers pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges they provided cocaine and alcohol to underage students on a beach camping trip where one of the instructors had sex with a 17-year-old boy, prosecutors said. Melody Suzanne Lippert, 38, and Michelle Louise Ghirelli, 30, joined about five students on camping trips at San Clemente Beach in Orange County during Thanksgiving and winter breaks last year, said Orange County Deputy District Attorney Kristin Bracic. Prosecutors say the two teachers provided the teens with alcohol, cocaine and marijuana, and that Ghirelli had sex with the 17-year-old boy. The two teachers, who are free on bail, were arrested in January in a case that gained prominence after one of their colleagues, a teacher at South Hills High School in suburban West Covina, came to their defense on social media and was suspended by his school district for appearing to blame the students involved.

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 08:01

U.S. Senator Corker chairs his first Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in WashingtonU.S. Senate Democrats said on Wednesday they would not support bills that could influence nuclear talks with Iran in the next three weeks, essentially ensuring no such legislation will pass before negotiators' March 24 deadline for a framework agreement. Democrats objected after the Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would move to begin debate and vote next week on a bill that would force President Barack Obama to seek Congress' approval of any nuclear agreement with Iran. McConnell announced his plans on Tuesday, shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress and warned the United States that it was negotiating a "bad deal" with Tehran.

The decision by Judge Gloria Burns could open the door for a Los Angeles developer, Izek Shomof, whose attorney told Wednesday's court hearing he could offer more money. Revel had asked Burns to approve the sale agreement with Florida developer Glenn Straub, who had failed to close a prior sale agreement. The current agreement required Straub to close the deal by March 31.
