Teen pleads guilty in hit and run

Friday, 22 November 2013 07:45 Published in Local News

A Missouri teenager has pleaded guilty after running over and killing a toddler in June. Charles Guice (Geis) entered his plea Thursday in St. Louis County Court to leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident. He is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 16. Guice was speeding without a license on June 16 when he hit 2-year-old Darion Griffin as he tried to cross a street in front of his grandmother's house. It happened in the 1500 block of Redman Road in Spanish Lake. The boy's 17-year-old aunt also was hit when she tried to pull him out of the way of the car. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Guice, who was 17 at the time, told police he left the scene because he was afraid. 

Vet wins $8.3M in St. Louis VA hospital lawsuit

Wednesday, 20 November 2013 09:52 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A U.S. Army veteran from St. Louis who lost a leg and suffered severe brain damage when a routine surgical procedure at the John Cochran VA Medical Center went bad has been awarded $8.3 million in a medical negligence lawsuit

 

   Forty-three-year-old postal worker Dirk Askew had a cardiac stent inserted at the veterans' hospital in February 2009 after complaining of chest pain. He returned one week later after developing an infection in his right leg, which was later amputated. His lawyers said surgeons improperly used infected tissue to repair the damage.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1ffSniw ) reports that the settlement will pay $6.8 million to Askew and $1.5 million to his wife.

 

   The case marks the latest negligence claim at Cochran after years of problems with staffing and sterilization.

 

Illinois governor to sign gay marriage into law

Wednesday, 20 November 2013 09:02 Published in Local News

  CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois is about to join the ranks of states allowing same-sex marriage.

   Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign a bill Wednesday making Illinois the 16th state to legalize gay marriage. The event will be held at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

 

   Illinois allowed civil unions in 2011. But it was a bumpy road to same-sex marriage in President Barack Obama's home state.

   The Illinois Senate approved the measure in February, but the House sponsor said he didn't have the votes. It wasn't called until this month and passed by a close margin.

   Those who opposed the measure included some of Illinois most well-recognized religious leaders.

   Same-sex couples will be allowed to wed starting in June.
