On Wednesday, he declined to reinstate the original sentence.

A California police chief is reeling after his son was accused in a violent attack on a 71-year-old Sikh man. The victim was taking a leisurely stroll in his California neighborhood when he was confronted by two young men and attacked. He tried to walk away, but the teens knocked him to the ground, according to the Manteca Police Department. His turban, a symbol of his faith, flew off. The son of Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister has been arrested in connection with the incident.

A Battery Creek High School teacher who allegedly had sex with two students over spring break previously had told co-workers she had a crush on one of the boys and joked about “hooking up with him,” according to a recently released report from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

Brittney Whetzel, 28, told friends she could not wait for the boy to graduate so that on “June 3rd” she could do whatever she wanted, including have “beautiful babies” with him, the 147-page report said.

Witnesses say Whetzel did not wait until graduation.

Prosecutors are hoping to put a man in prison for 50 years after his young son died from accidentally ingesting crystal meth. Curtis Collman is charged with the death of his 8-year-old son, Curtis, Jr., in addition to facing charges for pointing a firearm, theft and failure to register as a sex offender.

Investigators said the second grader started eating what he thought was breakfast cereal on a plate after telling his father he was hungry. Instead, police said the boy was eating crystal meth. By the time he was done, Curtis had consumed 180 times the lethal limit. “Just your worst nightmare as a parent,” Jackson County chief deputy prosecutor Jeffrey Chalfant said.

The boy’s father allegedly threatened a female friend at gunpoint when she tried to call 911 for help. Prosecutors said he even stopped his own parents from getting help for the boy, who was having seizures and convulsing.

An Upstate mother learned her fate on Wednesday after admitting to poisoning her baby daughter with a deadly amount of salt.

Kimberly Martines was arrested in 2016 when 17-month-old Peyton Martines was brought to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. Investigators said Peyton was placed on life support after suffering from acute salt poisoning.

Martines initially told investigators Peyton and her twin sister got into a bag of salt left out overnight. Her 4-year-old son later told investigators he watched his mom feed the baby a full spoon of salt and described the bag in detail.
