Appeals Court Tosses Child Abuse Plea Deal

The Indiana Court of Appeals has tossed out the 10-year plea deal sentence for a Terre Haute man convicted of abusing three adopted children.

It says Larry Russell can either be resentenced -- and face a much longer prison stay -- or have the deal thrown out.

Russell's lawyer says she wants the Indiana Supreme Court to consider the case.
