Austin ‘Trey’ Bernard was found guilty on child rape on December 3rd. He was the first of seven accused members of the former Hosanna Church to stand trial on charges of abusing young children.

Stop talking about UFOs! 
Angelia Joiner, the reporter for The Empire Tribune in Stephenville, Texas who has been reporting on the local UFO flap, has "stepped down" from her post. Apparently her editor feels that unexplained craft in the skies over Texas is not much of a story. Town officials also reportedly feel that the story is becoming an embarrassment.

You can contact the Empire Tribune here.

And don't miss crime novelist Douglas Preston's take on Meredith Kercher's murder. Preston has had some unpleasant personal experience with the judge in the Kercher case, experience detailed in his soon-to-released book on the serial killer known as the Monster of Florence. You can read an article he wrote on the Monster here. Highly recommended, as are the rest of Preston's books. I'm particularly fond of his collaborations with Lincoln Child.
