An Indiana woman whose 15-year-old son took a handgun to school has been sentenced to four years in prison. The 40-year-old was sentenced after pleading guilty to dangerous control of a child. The charge refers to cases where a parent or guardian permits a child to possess a firearm. She acknowledged to investigators she was aware her son had a firearm, but never discussed the matter with him.

Black, gay woman is Chicago mayor in historic vote

Chicago has become the biggest US city to elect a black woman its mayor, as voters put their faith in an openly-gay political novice to tackle difficult problems of economic inequality and gun violence. Lori Lightfoot, a 56-year-old former federal prosecutor and practising lawyer who has never before held elected office, won the Midwestern city’s mayoral race in a lopsided victory. She beat out Toni Preckwinkle, a career politician who is also black, by a wide margin of 74 to 26 per cent with most ballots counted.

Teacher fired after topless selfie found by student

A New York school teacher who was fired after a male student got hold of a topless selfie of her without her consent is suing the school for $3m. Lauren Miranda alleges that the school said she was not a good role model because of the photo. She said the selfie, which was taken in 2016, was only ever sent to another teacher she was dating at the time, according to her attorney John Ray. “By unknown means, a student obtained (the selfie). The school district took possession of it, excoriated her, and fired her as her breasts were displayed,” Ray said. Her claim alleges her firing was due to gender bias.
