Two employees of a private security firm have been fired after putting an ankle bracelet on an offender's prosthetic leg.
The scandal came to light after the man was stopped for a minor traffic infraction. Whenever the man wanted to skip out on his court-imposed curfew, he simply removed his plastic limb.
An Alaskan woman abused her adopted son to get on the Dr. Phil show, prosecutors allege.
Jessica Beagley, 36, poured hot sauce into 7-year-old Kristoff's mouth and told him not to spit it out for a minute. She recorded the punishment for a show segment titled "Mommy Confessions," and now faces misdemeanor child abuse charges.
According to prosecutors, this wasn't Beagley's first attempt to get on the Dr. Phil show. She contacted the show after watching a segment titled "Angry Moms," but heard nothing for eighteen months. Finally a staff member called to find out if she was still angry.
Beagley said yes, and submitted videos of her yelling at her children, but Dr. Phil's staff said they needed to see actual punishment. That's when Beagley got the video camera and the hot sauce.
Days later, she was on her way to Los Angeles to be on the show.

Minnery replied, "I would think that the study, when it cites nuclear families, would mean a family headed by a husband and wife."
"It doesn't," said Franken, getting a laugh from the audience.
Sen. Franken then chastised Minnery's assumption of the definition of nuclear families, and stated, essentially, that if Minnery had so misinterpreted the information in the HHS report, then all of his testimony was subject to question.
Franken questioned Minnery about his citing a Department of Health and Human Services report that stated, in essence, that children do better in a two-parent household. I think most people would agree with the basic premise that two parents can provide more income, and more emotional support, to their children -- since, we hope, the spouses are supporting each other in kind. As a single parent, I know what it is like to be at the helm alone.
Still, Franken didn't end there, . . .

In an interview to air August 28 on the National Geographic channel, President George W. Bush defended himself against criticism over the fact that, after being told of the 9/11 attacks, he remained in a Florida classroom reading a book aloud to schoolchildren. "My first reaction was anger," he said. "Who the hell would do that to America? Then I immediately focused on the children, and the contrast between the attack and the innocence of children.
"So I made the decision not to jump up immediately and leave the classroom.
"I didn't want to rattle the kids.
"I wanted to project a sense of calm."
While it is unclear what last week’s raid at the offices of the University of Northern Virginia yielded for federal immigration agents, a peek inside the home of the man who runs the controversial for-profit school would surely have been more interesting.
That’s because David Lee, UNVA’s chancellor and chair of its board of trustees, is so into domination and sadomasochism that he has transformed his basement into a suburban dungeon complete with bondage racks.
