1. Authorities say thatÂ a secondÂ young lady was booked as an adult and spent 10 days at Lew Sterrett instead ofÂ an appropriate juvenile facility.Â When the 14-year-old girl was arrested at Target for boosting some lingerie, she gave a fake name, and somehow, cops thought she was 20. Listen, I grew up with strict parents, and they would likely kill me for stealing. But come on. As soon as IÂ heard evenÂ the whisper of “Lew Sterrett,” I wouldÂ sing like aÂ canary: real name, real age, real phone number, real GPA, and even my real weight.
2. Testimony begins today in the death penalty trial of James Broadnax. He’s accused of killing Christian music producers Matthew Butler and Stephen Swan as they left their studio in Garland. TheÂ robbery/slayingÂ yieldedÂ Broadnax and his partner a mere $2.
3. Donald Patrick Blair did not have the patience for the whole “ask and you shall receive” thing. He took matters into his own hands and opted to steal more than $1.2 millionÂ while he worked as a business administrator atÂ Christian Life Assembly of God in Carrollton. After pleading guilty to mail fraud and tax evasion, he has to come up $1.5 million in restitution, and he’ll spend two years in a federal prison.
