URGENT: Video shows beheading of second American journalist

DUBAI (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group released a video purporting to show the beheading of U.S. hostage Steven Sotloff, the SITE monitoring service reported on Tuesday. A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off "this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State", the monitoring service said.

ONEIDA COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A former Rhinelander surgeon has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for possessing child pornography.

52-year-old Bruce Jacobson was also put on three years’ probation, after he pleaded guilty last July in Oneida County to a single felony possession charge.

Authorities found 26 images of child porn at his home last year.

Jacobson was arrested in December of 2011, and later resigned from Ministry Health Care.

Judge Jay Tlusty left open another 90 day jail term in Calumet County if the state could show it was needed. But the judge said a long prison sentence was not necessary.

Tlusty said Jacobson is making progress with addiction treatment. He had no prior record, was not a pedophile, and was not a threat to the community.

Jacobson was charged just 3 months before a new state law took effect that requires at least 3 years in prison for all child porn convictions in Wisconsin.

Lawmakers said they thought judges were letting too many child porn convicts stay out of prison.

As part of Jacobson’s sentence, he must serve 240 hours of community service, register as a sex offender, and stay away from the Internet.
