Two northern Arizona parents were arrested after photos of their young children allegedly being abused were posted on Facebook.
An anonymous Facebook user reportedly alerted authorities on Wednesday after seeing two children, an infant and a toddler, bound with duct tape around their wrists and ankles in photos posted to the social networking site.
In the photos, the 2-year-old and 10-month-old are allegedly bound with duct tape around their wrists and ankles. Their mouths were also closed shut with duct tape. Police said one of the children was hung upside down on an exercise apparatus.
Jayla Hamm, who was 17 at the time of the abuse, received 10 days in jail and two years probation. Her boyfriend, Corde Honea, 19, an ex-convict, was sentenced to three to five years for child abuse and received an additional 12 to 24 months on felony possession of stolen firearms.
Two men of questionable means worked the Post Office lobby, systematically rattling the little doors on the P.O. boxes, perhaps hoping one would spring open and disgorge fungible treasure.
Albuquerque, New Mexico, authorities charged R&B singer Lou Rawls with battery in January 2003. The criminal complaint states that the Grammy winner argued with his girlfriend, Nina Inman, over a former girlfriend. Inman was staying with the 69-year-old singer at the Wyndham Hotel when she told authorities that he grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the ground. The authorities also noted scratches on Inman's neck. Rawls posted the $2,500 bail and was released from the Bernalillo County Jail.
