Upping juvenile criminal age to 18 may be Texas non-starter

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 04:30

In this Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015 photo, Jason Wang poses for a photo in the Las Colinas section of Irving, Texas. When Wang got into trouble at age 15, as a minor, he went to a juvenile lockup, where he took classes that eventually helped him earn a college scholarship. His friend, who was 17, went to prison for the same crime, where little effort was spent on trying to turn his life around. Since 1918, Texas has charged 17-year-olds as adults, even though they can’t vote, join the military or serve on juries. With the state at odds with a federal law governing the housing of juvenile prison inmates and docked about $800,000 in funding last year, some are pushing to raise the age of defendants classed as adults to 18. (AP Photo/LM Otero)AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jason Wang and Johnny Truong were part of a gang that dressed as utility workers and held a suburban Dallas homeowner at gunpoint, making off with $68,000 in cash, electronics and jewelry before they were eventually caught.

Chicago baseball legend Minnie Minoso dead, trailblazer in racial integration

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 03/02/2015 - 03:56
Baseball great Minnie Minoso, the first black major leaguer to play for a Chicago team, died on Sunday at age 90. Nicknamed the "Cuban Comet," the Chicago White Sox legend was a major figure in the racial integration of Major League Baseball in the 1950s. Minoso became the first black player on the White Sox when he joined the team in 1951 and went on to become one of its most popular players, nicknamed "Mr. White Sox." Born in Havana, Cuba, Minoso signed with the Cleveland Indians in 1948, the year after Jackie Robinson first broke the major league's color barrier.

Alexis has a rare form of epilepsy, however, her family is hoping the Idaho Legislature will decriminalize marijuana extract oil to help reduce her seizures.

Now, they’ve got some legislative backers and an upcoming hearing, as Idaho joins a larger movement to loosen laws to allow the use of marijuana extract oil. (AP Photo/Kimberlee Kruesi)BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Ten-year-old Alexis Carey has a rare but intractable form of epilepsy, Dravet Syndrome.
