Police allege an Oklahoma woman hatched a scheme to get custody of her children that centered around loading hundreds of images of child pornography onto her husband’s phone and then having him arrested.

Lacey Hucks, 33, the wife, and Angel Moore, 44, her friend, are alleged to have worked together to frame Hucks’ husband, who was not named.

Police say that Hucks drove Moore to the Wynnewood Police Department on April 18 and had her turn the phone in and file a report.

They say that Moore turned in the device and said she saw Hucks’ husband using it to view child porn in their home.

The police say that phone had hundreds of images of “various juvenile victims.”.

Police did arrest the husband, but they began to wonder why the phone he was using did not have any images similar to the ones Moore turned into them.

She then, reportedly, admitted that she never saw the husband with the phone. »

A new global alliance should stand tall in its uncompromising efforts to protect international law, international humanitarian law, and human rights law.

Adherence to international law has afforded the center of Europe its longest period of peace in history.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) hit the brakes Thursday on bipartisan hopes that the Senate could quickly pass nearly $40 billion in Ukraine aid before leaving town for the week.
