N4T Investigators: Joke Justice? Update

Posted: Updated:

Tucson - A local resident says a News 4 Tucson Investigators report on Monday has led to a major development in her year-long nightmare. 

Amy Flores, a victim of identity theft, finally has her driver's license back . The 34-year old school teacher says  she and was able to drive today for the first time in six weeks. Flores says the day after our report, "Joke Justice?" aired, a Tucson Police detective submitted a letter to justice court, saying that Flores was a victim and shouldn't have to wait any longer for a hearing to get her license back. The charges against her were dismissed. 

Police have arrested a suspect in Amy's identity theft and that of several other people. She's 33-year old Angeline Lowery. Police say Lowery went on the state's motor vehicles website and obtained a driver's license in Amy's name. Lowery was pulled over in May while allegedly using Amy's license and charged with reckless driving and speeding. When Amy didn't show up for court in July because she wasn't aware of this, her license was suspended. Not driving, Amy said, "has been incredibly convenient."

We also reported that Lowery was in Pima County Justice Court in March but released by Judge Maria Felix without having to post bond, despite the County Attorney's office requesting she be held without bond due to her criminal history. Police say Lowery then went on a spending spree for the next three months,  using other people's credit cards. Judge Felix has not replied to our requests for comment.

Lowery is being held in the county jail on $7000 bond, awaiting a court appearance next week.

    Dolphins and whales speak in accents. They have “hit” songs. They have names for each other and they might gossip. A new study shows the most social dolphins and whales also have larger, more complex brains. It’s the latest study supporting the idea that big brains evolved to handle the demands of socializing, and not for some other reason. In other words, humans may be so intelligent because we gossip. “What we can say for sure with the dolphins and whales ...
