Colin and Andrea Chisholm liked to tell people they were Scottish aristocrats. It wasn't hard to fake. They were living on a $1.2 million yacht in Palm Bay and training Cavalier King Charles Spaniels -- a breed popular in the U.K. One of their pups even got an award at the Westminster dog show.

Although they were certainly living like royalty, the Chisholms told public assistance workers a different story between 2004 and 2012. Had those same workers known that the couple had more than $2.5 million in their bank account, they certainly wouldn't have granted them more than $165,000 in welfare benefits.

According to the court filing, Lori Davis' daughter was a student at Plantation High School back in 2006 when she engaged in "abhorrent deviant fornications" at school with teacher Alphonso Davis. She wasn't the only victim.

FIU Muslim Students Find Listening Device in Campus Prayer Room

Categories: Breaking News

The evening was sliding toward midnight, but the students were still hanging out. It was February 9, 2013, and the five members of Florida International University's Muslim Student Association had finished their evening prayers in the room they used daily at the Graham Center, the student union on the school's Modesto Maidique Campus.

They were lounging like any group of college kids, prayer mats spread out on the room's ugly blue-green-brown industrial shag, when one noticed a bump in the weave. It was just smaller than the volume button on an iPhone, with three holes in the top. As the group gathered around, the student pulled it up. A wire was attached to the bump. It looked like a listening device, they decided.
