KESHA has amended her lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke to include Sony Music. Kesha previously claimed that Luke drugged her and "forced himself" on her, threatened to take away her publishing rights and constantly belittled her appearance, driving her to bulimia. Now she's claiming Sony either knew about this and went along with it or failed to investigate claims. The court papers say that record labels are desperate for new pop stars amid declining sales that they tolerate this sort of behavior. Dr. Luke has filed his own lawsuit suggesting that Kesha is making false accusations against him in order to get out of her contract.

Quanah, Texas' Dale Thomas Burns made the mistake of taking off the ankle monitoring bracelet he was ordered to wear upon his release from prison. This was the first of two big mistakes for Dale as when police came to his house to investigate, they found he had a bulletproof vest. Since people convicted of a crime aren't allowed to have bulletproof vests, it took a jury a mere two hours to convict Dale of unlawful possession of body armor and he was sentenced to serve another 33 years in prison.
