Animal Care Services investigators determined that the dead dogs in a photo posted to facebook by a 16-year-old were not killed by the teen. The photo went viral on the web, causing animal lovers nationwide to respond. Authorities determined the dogs were killed by a car not the teenager. Animal Care Services also responded to the investigation on facebook with the following comment, "You may have seen recent media reports here in
San Antonio about two dogs reportedly killed by a teenager who then
posted pictures of the pets on Facebook. We know there has been a lot of
concern surrounding these pictures and wanted to provide this quick
update. Animal Care Services has been
working with the San Antonio Police Department to investigate this
alleged cruelty case since being notified of the pictures several days
ago. It has been determined the dogs in question were actually hit by a
passing car while roaming in the street and were not killed by the teen
who posted the pictures of their remains. While we disagree with the
posting of the pictures and the tenor of the attached comments, there is
no evidence to support further investigation into animal cruelty."

Appeals court vacates West Texas corruption ruling
June 19, 2013 20:10 GMT
EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- A federal appeals court has overturned a ruling by a West Texas judge that resulted in a six-year prison sentence for a man accused of fraud.
The federal panel determined in a filing Tuesday that the judge interfered with plea negotiations involving Adrian Pena. The El Paso contractor pleaded guilty in December 2010 to fraud for his participation in a scheme to bribe officials to win county contracts.
The appeals court says federal Judge Frank Montalvo's condition that a separate civil case involving Pena be resolved before he accepted the plea induced Pena to cooperate with the government in the investigation and plead guilty, rather than continue bargaining.
The ruling orders the guilty plea and six-year prison sentence vacated and requires further proceedings be handled by a different judge.
