Stranger pays down family's layaway account

Stranger pays down family's layaway account

When Amanda Johnson went to the Post Falls Wal-Mart earlier this week to make a payment on her layaway account, she was worried that she wouldn’t be able to pay it down in time for Christmas. Her worry was replaced with pure joy when the cashier told her that a complete stranger had paid her bill.


“It’s just overwhelming,” said Amanda. The Wal-Mart employee explained that a woman had come into the store the day before and asked to pay down the layaway accounts of three strangers. For Amanda, having her $204.82 bill covered was a Christmas miracle.

Steele's new lawsuit claims malpractice by lawyers

A north Idaho attorney convicted in an unsuccessful murder-for-hire scheme has filed a malpractice lawsuit aimed at the lawyers who represented him in his federal trial.

Sixty-eight-year-old Edgar Steele was convicted in 2011 for hiring a handyman to plant a car bomb to kill Steele's wife and her mother.

Steele is the former attorney for the founder of the Aryan Nations and is serving a 50-year term in prison.

In a lawsuit filed in Ada County, the Idaho Statesman reports that Steele complains his trial defense was impaired specifically by the malpractice of Robert McAllister of Denver.

One month after Steele's conviction, McAllister was disbarred and convicted on fraud charges.

Steele argues McAllister was too clouded and distracted by his own legal problems to be an effective lawyer.
