Jeffrey Tambor Is Leaving ‘Transparent,’ Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Actor Jeffrey Tambor, who played transgender mother Maura Pfefferman on the Amazon’s critically acclaimed television show Transparent, is facing a round of allegations pertaining to sexual misconduct. Tambor denies that any wrongdoing occurred but will be leaving the program, citing the show’s “politicized atmosphere” in the wake of the growing scandal.

Deadline released Tambor’s statement on the matter: “Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life,” he said. “What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago … I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can

OJ Simpson’s Lawyer Says He’s Not Completely Happy About Leaving Prison

OJ Simpson will soon be a free man, but it will be a bittersweet moment.

According to TMZthe former football star’s lawyer says that Simpson has created real bonds with his fellow inmates at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, and it will be hard to say goodbye to them. 

Malcolm LaVergne explains, that Simpson “loved being in general population” because he’s a social peron. He even misses his prison jobs, like being commissioner of the inmate softball league.

Community Raises Money For Man Arrested After Leaving 5 Young Kids Home Alone To Go To Work

After a North Carolina man was arrested for allegedly leaving his five children alone while he went to work, the community decided to raise money to help him.

Victor King, 30, told ABCNews that a stranger bailed him out of jail after his Thursday arrest. King told a judge on Wednesday that his wife was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer. He claimed he left his children, who are all under the age of 8, in the care of a neighbor who in turn left the children alone.

King was charged with child abuse after going to his job at Chipotle. Yahoo reported that a woman called 911 after she noticed that the children were home alone for the second time. She claimed she told King she’d help him find a babysitter. He refused the offer. King was previously convicted for child cruelty in 2011.

Mom Gets Ice Cream With Friends After Leaving 17-Month-Old To Die In Desert, Burying Body

A Phoenix mother has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for pushing her daughter in a stroller and leaving her in a desert to die. According to The Washington Post, 23-year-old Ashley Denise Attson pled guilty to second-degree murder in the September 2016 killing that occured on the Navajo Nation reservation.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Arizona, Attson left her 17-month daughter in the desert for four days. “Over the next few days, she met friends for ice cream and posted pictures of herself on Facebook,” the prosecutor’s office said. She eventually came back only to bury the child in an animal hole.

The child was born with methamphetamine in her system and in the custody of tribal social services for much of her life. Attson only regained custody of her about two months before killing her.

Under the plea agreement, the mother received a 20-year sentence. The maximum sentence otherwise would have been life.
