Quickly confusing a cashier into giving a thief too much cash is called quick changing and it's happening again in the Ozarks. It's an old trick that causes a worker to give someone more change than they deserve. Gas station clerk Lashara Luttrull says she's not naïve -- but she still got conned. She says a scammer fooled her once now she wants to warn others about quick change confusion. "For the life of me I can't think of when I handed him the other $50," Luttrull said, recalling the day she was tricked.

A wife is charged with prostitution in Greene County, 10 months after police say they caught her husband selling her for sex. Monday, prosecutors charged 44-year-old Kimberly Hamilton with prostitution. Her husband, 47-year-old Vincent Hamilton, pleaded guilty to promoting prostitution earlier this month. KSPR dug through five years of Greene County court records to see just how many women and men have been charged with prostitution. In the most recent investigation from last April , six officers set up cameras inside Room 340 in the Baymont Inn Suites at 2445 N. Airport Plaza Ave. Police say they found a craigslist post for a woman named “Kara” who described herself on craigslist as a "classy independent beauty hot sexy milf.

Springfield, Mo. - The Greene County Collector's office has announced that personal property and real estate tax receipts can now be printed by taxpayers online. The Collector's office mailed 2011 tax bills to county property owners on Wednesday, November 9th. These bills must be paid by Dec. 31 to avoid penalties. If you don't receive your bill, you can easily print one online at www.countycollector.com . This year, for the first time, taxpayers can help save tax dollars by electing to print their own receipts online rather than have the county pay for the postage to mail it. The taxpayer can do this by checking a box on the return portion of their statements.

Probation is no longer an option for a former teacher who had sex with the same student in three counties. Judge Calvin Holden revoked Alison Peck's probation Friday and sentenced her to five years in prison. Peck was originally sentenced to five years supervised probation, required to register as a sex offender and ordered to complete sex offender treatment. “She is used to living in ‘pretend normal’ everything has to look perfect and pristine on the outside but on the inside that is not who Alison is,” Peck’s sex offender treatment provider Kris Hamilton said.

STOCKTON, Mo. -- Black walnut harvesters brace for a difficult season.  After last year's stellar crop, producers now expect lower than usual numbers.  Many growers blame the drought. "There is going to be somewhat of an impact.  It's probably going to be a slightly more down crop than it would be typically.  But the full impact isn't going to be known until we start cracking these nuts and see what kind of yield we are getting out of them," said David Hammons, vice president of marketing for Hammons Products Company . Typically, Hammons Products Company needs 20 million pounds of black walnuts a year.

After 29 years of waiting, a murder victim's family members say they finally got justice. In 1982 in a rural area of Salem, Judy Spencer was strangled with her own shoelace and shot in the neck. Her body was dragged and dumped in the foundation of an abandoned outhouse. A jury convicted Spencer's then boyfriend of capital murder in October of 2009. This week the Supreme Court of Missouri upheld that decision. For more than a year and a half, Spencer’s family waited to find out if a jury's guilty verdict would stick.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A new Missouri law designed to be a solution could cause more problems.  The law took effect last August and allows scrap yards to dispose of vehicles ten years old or older without a title.  The idea behind the law is to make it easier to scrap an old, inoperable vehicle -- kind of like the Cash for Clunkers deal a few years ago.   Cody Blood is the proud owner of a compact, hatchback, rust-brown 1980 Toyota Corolla....

The United States Supreme Court ruled Monday that sex offenders convicted before 2006 may not have to register if they move across state lines. In the 7-2 ruling, Justices said rules requiring sex offenders to update their registration when crossing state lines don't automatically apply to those who committed their crimes before the law was passed. The law, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, also known as the Adam Walsh act, created a national sex offender registry.
