Dude with no arms and one leg gets 5 years for traffic charges.

A man with no arms and one leg who wouldn't stop driving despite a long list of traffic violations was sentenced to five years in prison Friday on the latest charges.

Michael Francis Wiley, 40, also was sentenced to 15 years of drug offender probation. He pleaded no contest in June to a variety of felony driving and drug charges. "I'd just like to say I know what I did was wrong," Wiley said in court Friday. "I am truly sorry your honor. I am."

Wiley taught himself to drive after losing both arms and a leg in an electrical accident when he was 13. He has already spent more than three years in prison for habitually driving without a license, kicking a state trooper and other charges. » Full article here

Mom charged after 2-year-old eats LSD-laced candy

A woman has been charged with physical abuse of a child after her 2-year-old daughter ate two LSD-laced candies the woman allegedly purchased and brought back to their apartment.

The mother, Donielle M. Maki, 23, went to a house and bought 10 drug-laced candies that looked like SweeTarts for $7 each from a man at the house.

Maki told investigators she bought the LSD for her cousin. After buying the drugs, Maki went home, put her 2-year-old daughter to bed and then "passed out" on the couch in the apartment. When she woke up Wednesday at about 9 a.m., her daughter was sitting on the floor near her Care Bears couch and said, "I like these, Mommy" and had one of the drug-laced candies in her hand.

Maki saw only eight pieces of candy left and knew her daughter had eaten two of them. » Full article here

Dude hits car after hooker takes his money

A man infuriated because an alleged hooker left with his money before finishing her work subsequently used his truck to repeatedly ram the Lincoln Town Car she got into and, unfortunately for him, did so while a cop was watching.

The end result was that Jose A. Mojica, 33, his brother-in-law, Oscar Maldonado, all face criminal charges for the early Monday morning incident.

Maldonado as his passenger in the Badger Road area when they saw Freilinger, who agreed to have sex with each man for a total of $100. She began having sex with Maldonado but did not finish, and when she saw a 1993 Lincoln Town car drive up she got out of the truck and into the Lincoln.

Officer Lewis pulled over the truck and Mojica told him that "that bitch," had run away with his $100. "He was angry because she had not performed the services for which they had paid her," the complaint says. Major damage was done to the Lincoln, the complaint says, and its driver, Alfred Jackson, and Freilinger, both complained of back and neck pain after the wreck. » Article here

Workaholics in Germany suffer from lack of sex

German workaholics may be suffering from a lack of sex, according to a university study published Friday.

A survey of 32,000 men and women by researchers at the University of Goettingen found over 35 percent of those reporting unsatisfying sex lives tended to use hard work as a diversion.

Some 36 percent of men and 35 percent of women surveyed for the "Apotheken Umschau" newsletter said they were likely to put in extra time at the office and volunteer for extra assignments. » Article here
