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.

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.

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.

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.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A murder in northeast Springfield last Friday afternoon occurred during a meeting that was set up for three people to buy heroin from two other people.   A witness told police that Marlo Hodges shot James Davis because they previously had an argument over $20 that Hodges stole from the witness. The shooting was at a home at 1360 E. Brower St., a few blocks southwest of Evangel University.  Hodges, who was still on the run on Monday, was charged on Sunday with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.  According to the probable cause statement against Hodges, he went to the home on Brower and asked the residents if they wanted to buy some heroin with him.  When they agreed, one of them called Davis and Kimberly Robinson and asked them to bring over some heroin.

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill says the post office mail processing facility in Springfield will not close down.  She says the U.S. Postal Service has agreed to keep that facility and another in Cape Girardeau open, in response to Senate-passed postal reform legislation. The Postal Service will continue plans to consolidate mail processing facilities in other parts of the country, but no facilities in Missouri will be affected. Earlier the USPS agreed to keep pen rural post offices.  "The Postal Service is finally listening to common sense, and that's great news for Missouri jobs, families and businesses, and for folks across rural American who rely on the mail," said McCaskill, who was born in Rolla, MO. "I've fought alongside folks on the ground in Missouri to send a clear message that our postal facilities are more than just brick and mortar-they're the lifeblood of rural America.
