A New York woman is facing criminal charges for allegations that she enrolled in and attended a high school, gaining access by telling the administration she was a homeless teenager.

In mid-December, an enrollee showed up at the Cairo-Durham School District office and disclosed that she was a homeless 15-year-old who was not currently attending school. She allegedly stated that her name was Riley Madison.

The student was immediately assigned a school and transportation services within the district based on the McKinney-Vento Act. This federally recognized assistance act ensures that children without stable living conditions are granted access to public education even if they don’t have the typical documentation required for registration.

A woman is facing charges after accusations that she enticed three men she had met in New York nightclubs and kissed them with a substance in her mouth leaving them unconscious while she allegedly stole over $100,000 of goods from them collectively.

After three reported jewelry robberies took place over the past year with the alleged victims being men who were visiting nightclubs, the authorities have identified 22-year-old Ocsetta Tinsley as the alleged perpetrator of the thefts.

In August 2017, Tinsley reportedly made the acquaintance of a 44-year-old man when she was the patron of the same New York nightclub he was in. When the man invited her back to his apartment she allegedly took jewelry valued at nearly $80,000 from his home without his consent.

A New York man has been accused of harassing his son-in-law by instigating him with his hairpiece, which the victim believes holds a great resemblance to a cartoon character he has feared since childhood.

Mazen Dayem, a Staten Island man, has a self-proclaimed lifelong phobia of the Loony Tunes licensed cartoon character called the Tasmanian Devil. He has allegedly been the victim of nearly half a decade of instigation by his father-in-law, 62-year-old Yunes Doleh, who sports a hairpiece that Dayem finds disturbingly similar to the animated animal that strikes fear in him.

According to the lawsuit, the tension between 36-year-old Dayem and his father-in-law escalated in early September when they met at a restaurant and tried to mend fences. They were unable to reconcile, and their meeting resulted in the arrest of Doleh for allegedly damaging Dayem’s vehicle. Dayem was issued a restraining order from the court prohibiting him from coming into contact with the victim, and he faced charges of criminal mischief.

The trial for a Long Island, New York, foster father who is accused of numerous allegations of sexual abuse with children in his care began on Wednesday. Prosecutors describe his home as tranquil in appearance, having a nicely manicured lawn and classic cars parked in the driveway. But, was “like a prison” for the boys he was raising. Many of these boys suffered from mental illness or low I.Q.s.

According to the prosecutors in this case against Cesar Gonzales-Mugaburu, boys would wake up in the middle of the night to find Mr. Gonzales-Mugaburu allegedly on top of them. At other times, the boys would be chasing the dogs around the house and would allegedly find him sexually abusing another child.

One boy allegedly allowed the rape to happen. He hoped that if he submitted to Mr. Gonzales-Mugaburu and kept his attention on him, that he would be less likely to sexually abuse his younger brother.
