Man supposed to be free spends Xmas behind bars

Seattle Washington – James S. Anderson is about to spend his fifth straight Christmas behind bars but he's not a convict.
A state appeals court erased the 31-year-old's conviction for armed robbery this month, saying new evidence uncovered by a law school student corroborates what Anderson has always said: He was another state when a group of men hit a Tacoma grocery store in 2004.
Prosecutors joined Anderson's lawyers in asking for his immediate release, but severe winter storms closed the court and helped delay the necessary paperwork.
It's unclear how soon Anderson could get out of the Walla Walla state penitentiary in eastern Washington; his family in Los Angeles is eager to see him whenever he arrives.
"All the family's talking about James coming home, James coming home!" said his mother, Yuralene Spencer of Los Angeles. "Everyone is so happy, full of joy, like God gave us the best present we ever had."
Anderson actually had to fight two robbery accusations. Records from California showed he met with his probation officer in Los Angeles on April 12 _ the same day he was initially accused of robbing a payday-loan store in Washington's Pierce County. Prosecutors in Washington dropped that charge.
But they soon accused him of a different robbery _ one at a Safeway store in Tacoma four days earlier, on April 8. Two other robbery suspects fingered him. Both received significant time off their own sentences for cooperating.
Anderson again insisted he was innocent, and offered the same alibi: He could not have committed the crime because he was in California. Probation records would again prove it, he said.

City hit by 'legal to pee' prank

People should ignore signs telling them that it is legal to urinate in certain public places in Nottingham, the city council said.
The signs, which were put up by pranksters in and around Nottingham, are designed to look official.
They feature a toilet sign and include the words: "Public Urination Permitted After 7.30pm".
Nottingham City Council is now urging the public to ignore the notices as it sets about removing them.
The prank also featured a laminated note, headed with the logo of Nottingham City Council.

Mexican Beauty Queen Gone Bad

Mexican Beauty Queen Arrested in Gun-Filled Truck, Police Say
GUADALAJARA, Mexico — A reigning Mexican beauty queen from the drug-plagued state of Sinaloa was arrested with suspected gang members in a truck filled guns and ammunition, police said Tuesday.
Miss Sinaloa 2008 Laura Zuniga stared at the ground, with her flowing dark hair concealing her face, as she stood squeezed between seven alleged gunmen lined up before journalists. Soldiers wearing ski masks guarded the 23-year-old model and the suspects.
Zuniga was arrested shortly before midnight on Monday at a military checkpoint in Zapopan, just outside the colonial city of Guadalajara, said Jalisco state police director, Francisco Alejandro Solorio.
Zuniga was riding in one of two trucks, where soldiers found a large stash of weapons, including two AR-15 assault rifles, .38 specials, 9mm handguns, nine magazines, 633 cartridges and $53,300 in U.S. currency, Solorio said.
