    In this Oct. 17, 2012 photo, Jody Robinson, the younger sister of James Cotaling, who was murdered in 1990, looks through newspaper clippings about him at her home in Davisburg, Mich. On a Sunday morning eight Novembers ago, Robinson picked up a local newspaper topped by the headline, "Children facing life." Inside the fold, she stared at a photo of Barbara Hernandez - jailed at 16 for killing her brother. Robinson says she had never been interested in politics and was unaware until then of a push to change the way courts treat teens offenders. The prospect of releasing Hernandez infuriated Robinson. Weeks later, she started an intensely personal campaign, testifying at a legislative hearing that reducing sentences of teen killers risked re-traumatizing victims' families. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)

    FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2013 file photo, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., right, welcomes CIA Director nominee John Brennan on Capitol Hill in Washington, prior to the start of Brennan's confirmation hearing before the committee. Lawmakers are considering whether Congress can set up a court to decide when drones can kill U.S. citizens overseas, much like the secret courts that now grant permission for surveillance. It's another sign of the U.S. philosophical struggle over remote warfare, raised after CIA head nominee John Brennan's vigorous defense of the drones. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

    FILE - This is file photo of Sture Bergwalls, taken on Apr. 15, 2012. Once considered Sweden’s worst serial killer, Sture Bergwall confessed to more than 30 murders over three decade

    FILE - This is file photo of Sture Bergwalls, taken on Apr. 15, 2012. Once considered Sweden’s worst serial killer, Sture Bergwall confessed to more than 30 murders over three decades, and was convicted of eight of them. Years later, he changed his mind and said his ghastly tales of slaughter, rape and even cannibalism were all lies, spawned by loneliness, a desire for attention and heavy medication. In what’s become a major embarrassment for the Swedish justice system, Bergwall’s convictions are now being overturned one by one. Courts that once found his chilling descriptions of the victims and the murder scenes enough proof to convict him now realize they may have been duped by a compulsive liar. “This is the justice scandal of the century,” Bergwall, 62, told The Associated Press by telephone from a psychiatric hospital where he’s been held since 1991. Five of his murder convictions have already been annulled. On Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, a court in northern Sweden ordered retrials in the remaining two cases: the 1976 death of 15-year-old boy whose remains were found 17 years later, and the fatal stabbings of a Dutch couple in 1984.

    FILE - In this May 15, 2012 file photo, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius speaks in Bethesda, Md. The legal challenges over religious freedom and the birth control coverage requirement in President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul appear to be moving toward the U.S. Supreme Court. Dozens of lawsuits have been filed by faith-affiliated charities, hospitals and universities, against the mandate which requires employers to provide insurance that covers contraception for free. However, many for-profit business owners are also suing, claiming a violation of their religious beliefs. The religious lawsuits have largely stalled, as the Department of Health and Human Services tries to develop an accommodation for faith groups. However, no such offer will be made to individual business owners. And their lawsuits are yielding conflicting rulings in appeals courts around the country. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)

    FILE - In this Feb. 10, 2012, file photo, President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius leave the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, after the president announced the revamp of his contraception policy requiring religious institutions to fully pay for birth control. The legal challenges over religious freedom and the birth control coverage requirement in Obama’s health care overhaul appear to be moving toward the U.S. Supreme Court.

    FILE- In this March 31, 2009 file photo, New York Giants football player Plaxico Burress leaves the criminal courts building in New York, where he appeared on illegal gun possession charges. The wide receiver, who had no criminal record, ended up spending nearly two years in prison for possessing an illegal firearm after accidently shooting himself with it at a New York City Nightclub. New York City has some of the Nation’s toughest gun laws. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)
