Mom gets jail for letting son, 7, drive
FAIRBANKS — An Alaska woman who let her 7-year-old son drive while she was passed out drunk in the passenger seat has been sentenced to 20 days in jail.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported Mrs. Koch pleaded guilty to one count of reckless endangerment in exchange for prosecutors dropping a charge of allowing an unauthorized person to drive. She has three previous convictions for drunken driving and did not speak at Wednesday's court hearing.
A neighbor called troopers in May after seeing a young boy driving a car with an unconscious passenger.
History-making federal judge dies
LOS ANGELES — Judge Robert M. Takasugi, the first Japanese-American appointed to the federal bench, has died in Los Angeles. He was 78.
Judge Takasugi was a much-honored jurist who presided over the high-profile trial of automaker John Z. DeLorean in 1984 and authored groundbreaking opinions. He was appointed to the federal bench in 1976 and remained active as a judge until last April.
He was born in Tacoma, Wash., in 1930 and was interned as a child with his family during World War II.
He began representing indigents and civil rights protesters in the 1960s and became a key figure in the Asian-American legal community and mentored minority law students.
