Details of the abuse were not made public,. Yoko Isaac, 45, abused a 3-year-old girl and her 11-year-old brother, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. She pleaded guilty to felony charges of torture and child abuse in exchange for prosecutors agreeing to drop a dozen related felony counts as part of a plea deal. Superior Court Judge Paul Dickerson handed down the sentence Friday at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta. Her husband, Aaron Thomas Isaac, previously pleaded not guilty to two felony counts each of child endangerment and false imprisonment. He is free on $50,000 bond, and scheduled to return to court June 16 for a felony settlement conference.

The investigation revealed Isaac had been…

Photo via Pixabay A 38-year-old San Andreas man has pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in prison for the bizarre videotaped agony-inducing poisoning of eight homeless people in Huntington Beach, according to newly obtained court records. William Robert Cable admitted 13 counts of poisoning, one count of inflicting injury on an elder adult, all felonies, and seven misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Cable videotaped the transients to get their reactions as they ate food laced with oleoresin capsicum, which prosecutors said was twice as strong as pepper spray. The victims suffered “seizure-like symptoms, difficulty breathing, vomiting” as well as intense pain in the mouth and stomach, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Cable, who was arrested in May of last year, could have faced up to 19 years and three months in prison if he had been convicted at trial. Some of the victims were told they were involved in a “spicy food challenge” before they were fed the tainted food, prosecutors said. Copyright…

LODI (CBS13) – There’s a literal divide in Lodi on how to handle the homeless population in the downtown area. New metal bars have appeared on benches, meant to deter people from sleeping there. Though, there’s still mystery surrounding who’s behind it. “They’re everywhere – and on all the benches,” said Joey Barrows, who dined in Lodi on Friday. He noticed the metal bars almost immediately. Employees in the downtown area did, too. Kendra, who works nearby, saw them earlier in the week. “They just appeared out of nowhere,” she said. Kendra often notices the homeless community outside of her store as she’s on the clock. “Some of them do kind of yell, go a little crazy and harass people,” she said. “It’s sometimes a little scary.” The issue has many people split on how to deal with the deterrent. Locals like Jeff Peter understand why these new bars were placed. “They put the bars up to keep people from sleeping on the benches,” Peter said. But there’s still a mystery of where these bars came from. Around town, everyone has a different answer. Was…
