A federal grand jury in Tucson has indicted a Phoenix man for threats that prompted congressman Raul Grijalva to shut down his Tucson and Yuma offices for a few days back in April.

The West's claimed Emily fell accidentally and hit a changing table. A judge overturned their child abuse conviction, but it's now being reinstated by the Arizona court of appeals.


Once-powerful polygamous leader Warren Jeffs has been released from an Arizona jail. Jeffs was charged with crimes against children for allegedly arranging marriages between grown men and teenage brides.

Last week, a Mohave County judge dismissed all charges against Jeffs. Tuesday, he was transferred from a Kingman, Arizona jail to a Utah state prison. Jeffs was already convicted in Utah on similar charges.
