Lauren Muzyka (front row, third from left) is one of the many pro-life protesters who reached out to Planned Parenthood employees. Muzyka’s organization, Sidewalk Advocates for Life, regularly counsels women outside of clinics in an attempt to offer them alternatives to abortion. “Abortion looks at a woman and says you can’t — and our message to a woman is you can — that you are strong enough, that you are amazing enough,” she said. Her organization claims to have saved more than 7,500 babies and helped dozens of clinic workers leave their jobs.

Pennsylvania mom accused of ‘failing to feed’ 26-pound teenage boy

Westlake Legal Group elisabet-estrada Pennsylvania mom accused of 'failing to feed' 26-pound teenage boy fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc f2a73e3c-ba69-590d-9f60-1ef570fd3fc3 David Aaro article

A Pennsylvania mom is facing charges after police said she failed to feed a 16-year-old boy in her care who weighed 26 pounds when he was checked into a hospital last October,  according to reports.

Elisabet Estrada, 41, was charged earlier this month with one count of aggravated assault, and two counts of endangering welfare of children — all felonies, according to the criminal docket.

Police received an investigation request on Oct. 24 from Franklin County Children and Youth Services after a 16-year-old boy was admitted to a hospital due to severe malnourishment, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

The teenager was described at the Hershey Medical Center as “very frail, gaunt, ribs extremely evident and ravenously hungry,” court records said. He laid in bed in the fetal position, while appearing as though he didn’t have the ability to stretch out, according to Fox 43.

The teenager reportedly stayed in the hospital until December 23. He gained 2.2 pounds during his first two days and weighed 45 pounds at the time of discharge, the outlet reported. Police said the child was developmentally delayed and doesn’t speak.

A doctor at Hershey Medical Center told police it was her medical opinion that the mother “failed to seek appropriate medical care from an early age until he was 16 years of age and failed to appropriately feed him,” according to the Chambersburg Public Opinion.

Police said the child “ruminated his food,” meaning when he had food, he regurgitated and re-ate it, the outlet reported.

During the same timeframe, police were also called to assist Franklin County Children and Youth Services at a home to check on the child’s siblings, who “appeared to be in good health,” the Chambersburg Public Opinion said.

“I hope they keep her in jail honestly,” neighbor Dean Kakaziotis told Fox 43. “That’s crazy that you can neglect your own child but then the other children are OK, how does that work?”

Estrada is being held at Franklin County Jail on $25,000 bail, according to the criminal docket.

Nevada police say infant found dead in dumpster in North Las Vegas

Police in Nevada are requesting help from the public after a baby boy was found dead in a dumpster in North Las Vegas earlier this week.

The Latino boy found just before 9 a.m. Sunday was estimated to be between 6 months and 1 year old. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to FOX 5 in Las Vegas.

A nearby resident found the infant and reported the discovery to police, the station said.

Detectives have asked for the public’s help in the investigation — and asked residents to check that all the children in their families are accounted for, according to the outlet.

On Tuesday, a growing memorial for the infant was set up by neighbors who placed stuffed animals, candles, balloons, flowers and toys in the area where the baby was found.

The baby’s identity will be released by the local coroner’s office once its family is found and notified, the station reported.

If parents believe they cannot care for a baby, any infant up to 30 days old can be left at a hospital, fire station or law enforcement agency, or obstetric clinic, without any questions asked, according to the state’s Safe Haven Law.

Arizona police say three children were found dead at a home in Phoenix on Monday night.

Crews were called around 7:30 p.m. to the home where they found the children unresponsive — all under four years old.

The deceased children were a 3-year-old boy, a 2-year-old girl, and a 7-month-old girl, according to Phoenix Police.

Investigators are trying to determine a cause of death. Police said there were no obvious signs of trauma on the children.

The children’s mother, father and another adult relative were in the home at the time.

Reports from Phoenix Fire officials first described the incident as a drowning, but they later retracted that statement, according to Fox 10 Phoenix.

Fire officials have reportedly left the scene and it is now a police investigation, according to the station.

A neighbor told local reporters he went outside after hearing a helicopter above the residential area, adding he was scared for his own family’s safety.

He added that “cops [had] went frantic.”

“I freak out, you panic, you hope you don’t live amongst bad people,” he said, according to the outlet. “You want to make sure there’s not a present danger to your children.”

The investigation is in its early stages.

Texas man receives ‘nasty’ messages after DMV revokes ‘Jail 45’ license plate: report

Westlake Legal Group jail-45-plate Texas man receives 'nasty' messages after DMV revokes 'Jail 45' license plate: report fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us fox-news/auto fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 5adfd672-f76a-5b5e-a084-911dcf2f6da8

A Texas man says his family has received ‘nasty’ messages after the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles forced him to remove his controversial license plate.

Jerry Balkenbush’s vanity plate, which is now being revoked, reads “Jail 45” — a reference to Trump, the 45th president of the United States.

The reported Air Force veteran says he got the plates in November as a form of peaceful protest, but after receiving a complaint back in December, he said the state determined it was derogatory.

“Someone said, ‘OK, that’s OK,’ and then one complaint says, ‘OK, you’ve got to take them off’ when to me, that’s my freedom of speech, my First Amendment rights,” Balkenbush told Dallas-Fort Worth’s WFAA.

After he posted photos of the plate to Facebook, Balkenbush says they prompted hate from people online who messaged his family.

TEXAS MAN, 18, SHOT AT HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL GAME HAS DIED

“I did not foresee the hate coming, the nasty words and profanity towards me and towards my wife,” he told the station. “I feel like this is the new normal in our politics.”

A DMV rarely issues a vanity plate only to take it back. It’s happened just 12 times in the last fiscal year, DMV spokesman Adam Shaivitz told the outlet. The Texas DMV approves roughly 1,000 vanity plates each week and rejects hundreds each month.

Balkenbush has 30 days to take the plates off, according to KXAS Fort Worth.

Michigan man finds over $43G in couch he bought from store

Westlake Legal Group usa-cash-iStock Michigan man finds over $43G in couch he bought from store Nick Givas fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/michigan fox-news/us fox-news/good-news fox news fnc/us fnc bd9db805-0e6b-5438-a6d1-170216573828 article

Howard Kirby, of Michigan, got the surprise of his life last month when he found over $43,000 in cash inside a couch he’d purchased at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Owosso.

“It still boggles my mind every so often,” he told CBS 5 on Thursday.

Kirby purchased the couch to outfit his man cave but said the ottoman felt odd and uncomfortable. His daughter eventually unzipped the cushion to examine it further and discovered stacks of hundred-dollar bills.

“That’s when she started pulling out this,” Kirby said, as he held up a fistful of cash. “I still have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming or something,”

A total of $43,170 was found inside the couch, but Kirby didn’t feel morally right keeping it. He went back to the store to seek out the original owner and tell them about the cash.

Kim Fauth-Newberry came into possession of the couch after her grandfather, the original owner, passed away last year. She said she had no idea there was money inside when she gave it away.

The ReStore surprised her on Thursday by calling her down to the shop and returning every last dime that Kirby had found.

“It’s just crazy,” she said. “It’s completely awesome.”

Kirby had reportedly sought legal advice about his rights to the money and was told that he was under no obligation to return it. Despite having the legal right to keep it, he thought giving it back was the right thing to do.

The ReStore manager, Rick Merling, praised Kirby for leading by example and putting the needs of someone else above his own.

“Just doing the right thing — to me, this is someone who in spite of what they’re going through – in spite of their own needs has said, ‘I’m just going to do the right thing,’” Merling said.

Kirby claimed he could have used the money for a new roof but is happy the cash has found its way back to the original owner.

“I always thought, ‘What would I do if that ever happened.’ Now I know,” he said. “And it makes me feel good.”

Pornhub sued by deaf man over adult video site’s alleged lack of subtitles: report

Westlake Legal Group 544585-pornhub Pornhub sued by deaf man over adult video site's alleged lack of subtitles: report fox-news/us fox-news/tech/technologies/websites fox-news/tech/technologies/video fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox news fnc/entertainment fnc David Aaro article 71489387-65d1-511b-87cc-19d0d80a746a

A deaf man has reportedly filed a lawsuit against a popular adult video website for alleged rights violations because he says it doesn’t provide closed captioning on its videos.

Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub, which hosts millions of adult videos, claiming the site’s lack of subtitles violates the rights of deaf and hearing impaired under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in areas of “employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government programs and services,” according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

ARIANA GRANDE SUED FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OVER ‘7 RINGS’

Suris argues that the deaf and hearing impaired can’t understand the audio portions of the videos on the site, thus denying them similar access to the content, according to TMZ.

Pornhub vice president Corey Price — who says the company usually doesn’t comment on pending litigation — responded to the allegations.

“We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing-impaired access to our videos,” he told the outlet. “While we do not generally comment on active lawsuits, we’d like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category.”

MARRIED FIRST COURINS EXPLAIN WHY THEY’RE DECLARING THEIR LOVE IN DOC: ‘WE’RE REALLY LIKE EVERYONE ELSE’

In the court documents, Suris listed numerous titles that he watched, such as “Sexy Cop Gets Witness to Talk,” but he was completely lost when it came to the dialogue, TMZ said.

He also claimed that it’s pointless for him or others in a similar situation to purchase a premium subscription to the website without the subtitles, according to FOX 10 of Phoenix.

Suris is reportedly also seeking damages, the outlet said.

Lawyer for Jeffery Epstein cellmate calls for hearing on lost video

The lawyer for Jeffrey Epstein‘s former cellmate is calling for an immediate probe into why the prison video on that night of Epstein’s first suicide attempt was destroyed, according to a letter filed on Monday in New York to Judge Kenneth K. Karas.

The video would have recorded the hallway outside the cell around the time of the attempt.

Bruce Barket, the attorney for the accused killer Nicholas Tartaglione, told the judge he wants a “prompt evidentiary hearing to ascertain circumstances surrounding the government’s failure to preserve the video surveillance footage at Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC).”

The video would have shed more light on the alleged attempt which occurred between the late hours of July 22 and early morning hours of July 23 last year, he says.

SURVEILLANCE VIDEO OF EPSTEIN CELL ON NIGHT OF 1ST ALLEGED SUICIDE ATTEMPT DELETED, ‘TECHNICAL ERRORS’ BLAMED

Epstein was later found in his jail cell on July 23 with a bedsheet around his neck. The facility placed him on temporary suicide watch, prosecutors say. Earlier this month they revealed to the court that the video had been deleted due to “technical errors.”

Federal prosecutors said Thursday that jailhouse video no longer exists of the area around Jeffrey Epstein’s jail cell on a day he survived an apparent suicide attempt. (New York State Sex Offender Registry via AP, File)

“The MCC inadvertently preserved video from the wrong tier within the MCC, and, as a result, video from outside the defendant’s cell… no longer exists,” prosecutors wrote, according to Fox News.

“Accordingly, we ask that the Court conduct a hearing to determine (1) how the video was destroyed, who was responsible for its destruction, and why it was not preserved; (2) whether there are any witnesses who reviewed the video footage prior to its destruction who can describe what they observed, and, in turn, preserve at least some the video’s exculpatory value; and (3) whether and to what extent the destruction of the video was deliberate or reckless, and whether there was any bad faith on the part of the Government in connection with the video’s destruction,” Barket added.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN CASE: JUDGE WILL NOT GRANT PUBLIC ACCESS TO DOCUMENTS INVOLVING ALLEGED MADAM GHISLAINE MAXWELL

Barket says his team has reviewed letters filed by the government to explain why the video no longer exists, but they believe the explanation is “inadequate” because it is “non-specific, unsworn and untested.”

He added the government hasn’t provided a name of “a single individual” responsible for the video’s loss, according to the letter filed on Monday.

Tartaglione is facing the death penalty after he was accused of a quadruple homicide, according to Fox News. His lawyers have been seeking the video evidence at the time of Epstein’s alleged suicide in anticipation of the death penalty phase of the trial if Tartaglione is convicted — hoping it would reduce the severity of his crimes for a jury deciding his fate, the letter said.

Barket says the video footage would have shown efforts made by Tartaglione to alert BOP staff that Epstein was in distress.

“In sum, evidence that Mr. Tartaglione, in an institutional setting, demonstrated concern for the life of his cellmate, took steps to aid a fellow inmate in distress, and summoned staff for assistance, is a factor that, in a jury’s mind, may weigh against the imposition of the death penalty,” he said, according to the letter.

“The video footage is mitigating evidence that Mr. Tartaglione, should he be convicted, would have had a due process and Eighth Amendment right to present. Accordingly, sworn witness testimony explaining the apparent loss of this evidence is necessary and appropriate.”
