A 13-year-old girl who reported being sexually assaulted and left in a ditch at K-Days “ought to have known” she was putting herself at risk when she drank with a stranger she met that night, the company that produced the midway says in a statement of defence.
The statement from North American Midway Entertainment-Canada Co. came in response to a lawsuit from the victim, an Indigenous woman who CBC is referring to as Jessica to protect her identity.

A Florida couple was arrested last week after they were caught allegedly selling drugs out of a drive-thru window they constructed out of the side of their mobile home.
William Parrish Jr. and McKenzee Dobbs of Ocala, Florida, were arrested on August 23 after investigators raided their mobile home following reports of four drug overdoses in the area, WFTV reported.
Ocala Police said the couple had turned a kitchen window into a drive-thru so customers would not have to constantly enter and exit their home, potentially drawing unwanted attention, WFTV reported. The house had signs directing people where to drive and indicated whether it was open or closed, police said.
“We were seeing some overdose incidents that were happening in this particular area, specifically at this particular location,” said Ocala Police Capt. Steven Cuppy. “There [were] some heroin sales that were going on there. Subsequently, through the investigation, we were able to determine that product was laced with fentanyl.”
Parrish, 32, was charged with driving under the influence, keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell and resisting arrest without violence, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office inmate records.
Dobbs, 20, has been charged with keeping a dwelling used to sell drugs, possession of drugs with intent to sell, possession of fentanyl and possession of fentanyl with intent to sell, court records show.

A Florida restaurateur is accused of shooting into the home of a perturbed diner who took a shot at the restaurant in an online review.
Norman Auvil, 42, of Orlando was arrested Thursday and charged with “shooting into a dwelling and abuse of a disabled adult.” Orange County Sheriff’s Office said Auvil was drinking beer with the restaurant owner’s son, Michael Johnson, who was upset about the review.
The men found reviewer Monica Walley’s address and drove to the home. WFTV reported Auvil was in an SUV with Johnson at the time of the incident before Auvil allegedly shot into the home three times.
About 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 16, students were gathered for an assembly in the school’s auditorium when a 14-year-old boy stood up and repeatedly stabbed a 14-year-old girl. The boy and the victim were friends, but Luther police Chief David Randall said the boy wanted a relationship.
“There was one point where he approached her in reference… to try to have some type of relationship, to which she said she wasn’t interested in it,” Randall said the victim told him during an interview earlier this week.
Teretha Wilson and McArthur Bryant raise their 10-year-old son Tamarion to call their elders “ma’am” and “sir,” but that politeness got the fifth grader in trouble from a teacher at his preparatory school.
Tamarion had returned from school on Tuesday with a punishment he had to have signed by his parents. He went on to explain that he had continued to repeatedly call his teacher “ma’am” despite her requests not to, and was told to write the word “ma’am” written on a piece of paper four times per line on both sides as a penalty.
“He had a look on his face of disappointment, shame,” Bryant told ABC-13. “At the end of the day as a father, to feel kind of responsible for that…knowing that I have been raising him and doing the best that I can, it’s not acceptable.”
Wilson went on to explain that Tamarion had recently been in the hospital for seizure-related activity, and had been suffering from memory loss and hallucinations.
Adding to their anger was how the teacher allegedly told Tamarion during the encounter that “if she had something, she would have thrown it at him” — which the parents said the teacher admitted when they met with her and the principal the next day.
“It wasn’t right,” Wilson told to ABC-13. “It wasn’t professional. As a teacher, it wasn’t appropriate.”
Reps for North East Carolina Preparatory School did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, but told ABC-13 in a statement, “This is a personnel matter which has been handled appropriately by the K-7 principal.”

Though Tamarion will moving to a different classroom, Bryant is warning other parents of this sort of behavior. “If it happened to my son, I’m pretty sure if not a week, a day, a month, a year, it will occur to somebody else’s child,” he said.
And as for Tamarion’s punishment, it was returned to the teacher, signed as promised — but with a second sheet of paper attached, the family said: Tamarion, writing the definition of the word “ma’am.”

A former Homeland Security Investigations special agent raped a woman twice, sexually assaulted another and told the victims police would never believe them if they reported him because of his law enforcement position, federal prosecutors alleged.
John Jacobs Olivas, 43, of Riverside, California, was arrested Wednesday and pleaded not guilty in
a U.S. District Court hearing the same afternoon. The crimes took place in 2012, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.
A federal grand jury indictment alleges that Olivas, who resigned in 2015, raped a victim twice, in September 2012 and November 2012, and tried to rape another in January 2012. The document alleges he told the second victim that “police would not be responsive” if she tried to report him.
ALTENA, Germany — When you ask locals why Dirk Denkhaus, a young firefighter trainee who had been considered neither dangerous nor political, broke into the attic of a refugee group house and tried to set it on fire, they will list the familiar issues.
This small riverside town is shrinking and its economy declining, they say, leaving young people bored and disillusioned. Though most here supported the mayor’s decision to accept an extra allotment of refugees, some found the influx disorienting. Fringe politics are on the rise.

Florida candidate apologizes amid fake-diploma controversy, says she will stay in race
Brendan FarringtonAssociated Press
A Republican candidate for the Florida Legislature apologized Monday for saying she had a college degree that she didn’t complete, but said she will stay in the race “and lead by example from now on.”
Melissa Howard last week posted a photo of herself with what looked like a Miami University diploma after being accused of lying about her degree. The Ohio university later sent reporters a statement saying she attended the school, but never graduated and the diploma Howard posted has inaccuracies.
Howard posted an apology on her campaign Facebook page and admitted she didn’t graduate from the school.
“I made a mistake in saying that I completed my degree. What I did was wrong and set a bad example for someone seeking public service. I am staying in the race and intend to win and lead by example from now on,” she said.
Even if she dropped out, it’s too late to get her name off the ballot ahead of the Aug. 28 primary. Vote by mail ballots were sent out a month ago. The seat represents portions of Manatee and Sarasota counties, where about 20,000 Republican votes have already been cast.
While some have taken to social media to say Howard should drop out, local party officials say the matter should be left to voters.
“We should just let nature take its course. Let the voters decided if they want her to win the primary,” said Manatee County Republican committeewoman Peggy Simone.
In her statement, Howard said, “It was not my intent to deceive or mislead anyone.” It didn’t say what her intent was.
Her primary opponent, Tommy Gregory, didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
