How Did I Miss THIS?

For the second time in the last few days, (II Botts was the first),I have come across a news article that I missed. How could I miss it? I read newspapers both online and print everyday. I look at the Associated Press newswire a couple of times a day. But things get by. Once in awhile. Like this one, from June 28:

Appeal Fails for Teacher Lina Sinha - Update

(Albany, New York)
New York's top court has upheld two sodomy convictions of a former private school headmistress and teacher convicted of having a years-long sexual relationship with an underage student.

The Court of Appeals, agreeing with a midlevel court, says prosecutors' failure to disclose evidence helpful to the defense did not affect the guilty verdicts against Lina Sinha (LEE'-nah SIHN'-hah).

The lower court threw out her conviction for allegedly bribing another student, citing "intolerable" prosecutor conduct.

The Manhattan District Attorney's Office declined comment Wednesday.
Sinha now must serve several years in prison.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
