ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri man who avoided prison because of a clerical error and led a law-abiding life for 13 years said he is overwhelmed by the support he's received since the story of his incarceration became public.
 
Meanwhile, the Missouri attorney general signaled that he would look for a way to take Cornealious "Mike" Anderson's many years of clean living into account in attempting to resolve the "difficult situation."
 
Anderson was convicted in 2000 of armed robbery for holding up a restaurant manager in suburban St. Louis. But he was never formally ordered to report for his 13-year sentence. So he never went and instead got married, learned a trade and raised several children.
 
When prison authorities realized their mistake last July, they took him into custody.

Hazelwood voters could vote on new utility tax

Friday, 18 April 2014 13:17 Published in Local News

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Hazelwood residents could soon have the chance to vote on a proposed utility tax.

 

Currently, Hazelwood is the only St. Louis County municipality that does not impose a residential utility tax. The proposal would increase bills for natural gas, electric, water, and telephone service by a total of around $10 a month.

 

The city council could decide at a May 7 meeting if they will send the measure to voters. 

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Courts and legislatures are slowly shifting away from using eyewitness testimony as the gold standard of evidence. The reason: Studies show it's only right about half the time.
 
That has led a small group of police chiefs, courts and lawmakers to toughen laws governing the handling of eyewitnesses and their accounts of crimes. Reform advocates say procedures long regarded as solid police work can fundamentally alter what someone believes they saw.
 
Prosecutors have pushed back against the effort politically. National District Attorneys Association director Scott Burns says reform efforts are targeted at undercutting prosecutors.
 
State supreme courts in Oregon and New Jersey implemented stringent guidelines for eyewitness testimony. Legislatures in seven states, from Connecticut to North Carolina, along with a number of cities have overhauled their treatment of eyewitness testimony.
