My eyebrows need rest. They’ve been jumping up and down all week while flipping the pages of the Standard-Examiner and cruising through StandardNET. Human nature’s been in maximum flourish lately. I think the moon was full a week or so ago, could that be it?
“Sexual abuse” and “labor and delivery” rarely appear in the same news story, but they did after a man allegedly twice groped a nurse — as his wife was being wheeled into an Ogden hospital to give birth. He’s just drunk, the unfortunate mother-to-be explained. Criminal charges are in process.
Meantime, it’s difficult to top the “dumb criminals” escapade of Maxi Sopi, who was accused of pulling off a $200,000 haul from Seattle banks and credit unions. He fled to Mexico and began living the life of a king, lounging on Cancun’s beaches by day and partying in the clubs at night. But Sopi just learned it’s better to be circumspect on Facebook if you’re running from the law. He bragged on Facebook about his luxurious lifestyle and the feds tracked him down.
And, what to do about the apparent high hormone levels of Top of Utah teachers? In recent months we followed the criminal cases of two Davis County female teachers who had sex with the same teenage boy. And this week, we’ve had stories about investigations of male teachers reported to have been hooking up with teenage students, or recently former students. My 17-year-old daughter’s still in high school, and these stories make me want to follow her around armed with nunchucks.
Today’s news also brings the report of the Layton High School principal being put on paid leave for an investigation. Details to come as the story develops.
