A North Tustin mother and her daughter were charged Tuesday with failing to obtain a family day-care license--a misdemeanor--in the March 30 drowning of one toddler and the near-drownings of two others who fell into a back-yard swimming pool. Orange County Deputy Dist. Atty. Thomas M. Goethals said a criminal complaint was filed against Diane Brooks, age unknown, and her daughter, Carol Brooks, 24, charging each with one count of "willfully violating" the California health and safety code that requires day-care providers to be licensed.

Prosecutors said Friday they were disappointed in the probation sentence handed to the operator of a Tustin family day-care home where one toddler died and two others suffered permanent brain damage when they fell in a pool last year. "I would have liked more than what she was sentenced to," Orange County Deputy Dist. Atty. Mark Jordan said. "Jail time would have been a fair response to what had happened."

The arraignment of two North Tustin women charged with failing to obtain a day-care license after a pool accident left a toddler dead was delayed Monday while the defendants sought to have the case against them dismissed. Misdemeanor charges were lodged last month against Carol Brooks and her mother, Diane Brooks, for the alleged violation of the state's health and safety code. The complaint followed a March 30 accident at their home day-care center in which 14-month-old Arthur M. Griese died and two other children were seriously injured when they toppled into the pool.

State Assemblyman Mickey Conroy (R-Orange), a candidate for Orange County supervisor, shocked onlookers at a Republican Party headquarters rally this week by making obscene gestures--and some say shouting profanities--at his opponent. The controversial Conroy, 68, an assemblyman since 1991 who is leaving Sacramento because of term limits, acknowledged that he gave the finger to his rival, Todd Spitzer, a deputy district attorney.
