Trio Allegedly Used Stun Gun And Drugged Special Needs Girl Before She Died

A group of three people are facing charges after a 14-year-old special-needs girl died in October 2016 in Montgomery, Alabama. According to Chron, 43-year-old Tommieretta Gunner and 28-year-old Marreissa Jones were charged with a first-degree felony injury to a child charge. The girl’s father, 42-year-old Anthony Maurice Jackson is facing a third-degree felony injury to a child charge.

Authorities allege that Gunner and Jones, who are her caretakers, drugged the teen with two different high blood pressure medications over a three-week period at her home during the fall of 2016. The girl was required to take daily doses of antipsychotic medication and sedatives to treat her medical issues but not the blood pressure medications. Jackson is also accused of shocking his daughter with a stun gun seven times and threatening her at least 15 other times prior to her death.

After Demand By Trump, Sessions Is Considering Special Counsel To Investigate Hillary Clinton

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly considering investigating Hillary Clinton. The Washington Post reports that it has obtained a letter that shows Sessions directing some senior federal prosecutors to explore Republican concerns around Clinton and the 2016 election. The letter is a response to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R) who wants the government to probe into a variety of issues that included Clinton’s use of a private email server, alleged wrongdoing by her Clinton Foundation and the sale of a uranium company to Russia.

In the communications, Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd writes that Sessions had “directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters,” and that those prosecutors would “report directly to the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further

Special Education Teacher Raised Over $260K By Faking Terminal Cancer For Years

An Alabama woman raised over a quarter of a million dollars while pretending to have terminal cancer for three years. From from 2014 to 2017, Jennifer Flynn Cataldo, 37, collected a total of $264,163 from donors through GoFundMe accounts and by asking for money on social media pages. In August, the former special education teacher pleaded guilty to wire fraud and bank fraud, according to People. Last Wednesday, she was sentenced to serve 25 months in prison in addition to paying restitution to her victims.

Cataldo spoke at her sentencing last week.

“I am overcome with sorrow,” she said, according to AL.com. “They trusted me, they loved me. I was deceitful and I lied. I’m sorry. I don’t know a better word than sorry. […]I want to be a better person for my son, for my parents,” she said Wednesday.

In court, Cataldo’s lawyer Adam Danneman said she developed a painkiller
