(Scroll down for video) A boy was arrested, charged and convicted of killing his neo-Nazi father, according to court proceedings in California.

Now, the boy was sentenced to 10 years in jail.

The child, who was 10-years-old when he fatally shot his neo-Nazi father, will spend at least seven years in a juvenile detention center in the state of California, a judge has ruled, ending a highly publicized case, which began three years ago.

Joseph Hall was convicted of second-degree murder in 2011, after he told police he shot his father, Jeffrey Hall, at close range behind the ear, as he slept on the couch.

Jeffrey Hall, 32, was an unemployed plumber, who was raising a young family in Riverside, California, when he was killed.

The case has appeared frequently in the headlines due to the fact that Hall was a member of the National Socialist Movement, and was a local leader of a neo-Nazi group.

Hall often wore World War II Nazi paraphernalia.

He ran for an election on a platform of white supremacy in 2010, and participated in a series of Nazi rallies.

Hall told police he killed his father because he feared he would have to choose between living with his father or stepmother after their divorce finalized.

Prosecutors said Hall has a history of violence, including incidents where he allegedly threatened teachers, and may have been abused as a child.

He has spent the past two years in juvenile detention center in the state, went to regular therapy sessions and is said to be able to control his anger.

Californian woman becomes first person to receive ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving

The ticket 
By: Shifra Unger

(Scroll down for video) A California woman was cited by police for wearing Google glasses while driving.

The woman was identified by police as Cecilia Abadie of San Diego.

Abadie was pulled over for speeding. She drove about 80 miles per hour in a 65 miles per hour zone. That is when an officer of the California Highway Patrol noticed that she was using Google Glass.

On top of her speeding ticket she was ticketed for wearing the Google glasses. These type of tickets are usually given to drivers who are distracted by a video or a television screen while driving.

Abadie uploaded an image of the ticket to the Google + website.

The Google glasses feature a hidden computer and a thumbnail-size transparent display screen above the right eye.

Users can scan maps for directions, as well as search the Internet, read email and engage in video chats, all without reaching for a phone.

Abadie said that using the Google glasses could be less distracting than a GPS unit or phone because drivers don't have to glance down.

"Maybe the glasses are more of a solution to the cellphone than a problem," she said.

The crime apparently violated California Vehicle Code Section 27602. Under this law, a person cannot drive with any type of video screen that is operating in the front seat or otherwise visible to the driver.

Abadie said that the device was not working at the time she was driving as the device becomes inactive when it is not asked to perform a task.

Legislators in Delaware, New Jersey and West Virginia, have already introduced bills that would ban driving with Google Glass.

(Scroll down for video) What a cool way to open a beer bottle.

Pilots in China, used helicopters to open beer bottles mounted on poles as part of a contest to show their control over the aircraft.

The challenge was to remove the top of a beer bottle with a can opener that was attached to a pole on the helicopter.

The challenge involved removing the cover, but it had to be done without damaging the bottle.

For the final event of a three-day tournament, Chinese helicopter pilots had eight minutes to open five bottles of beer.

“The game mainly tested pilots’ manipulation of the helicopter. We have to get the bottle opener as close to the beer bottle as possible,” pilot and competitor Wang Xuefei said.

Unfortunately, the pilot in the video failed in his quest to win the title this year, as it was decided that the bottle he opened was too damaged to qualify for any points.

The winner of the competition, pilot Zhang Zhiqiang, managed to open three of the five bottles in the required time.

Cat seen on video visiting a pet shop every day

Cat inside pet shop

(Scroll down for video) In recent months a cat has been visiting pet stores in the United Kingdom every day.

Every day at 9:00 a.m., the adorable cat sits outside the Boston, Lincolnshire pet shop, waiting for workers to open the store.

A video shows the cat named Graham, sitting in front of the automatic doors of the store, waiting to be let in.

Once inside, the cat walks around and stops to look at the pets in their enclosures.

"Sometimes the cat sits on the carpet and greets customers as they arrive,” Store manager Vicky Coker said.

“The animals here don’t react to him. They’re not scared at all. They are protected in their cages so it cannot cause them any harm,” George Tarbox, 19, who has worked at the store for five months, said.

"At first we discouraged Graham from entering the store, but it kept coming back. We did not think it would be good to keep shooting it out, as pets are always welcome here,” Tarbox added.

Graham spends hours in the shop. Employees occasionally feed it treats to stop the cat from stealing the products that are for sale. They also allow the cat to play with toys that are not for sale.

The cat has become a celebrity at the store with the customers.

It is believed that the cat has an owner, because it has a collar. Staff members have no idea who the cat belongs to.

Graham never spends the night at the store, as it has a motion activated alarm that would go off.

Instead, they place the cat outside at the end of the day and the cat finds its way home to its owner, whoever that is.

"I always say ‘see you tomorrow’" Tarbox said. "We know that it will be back," he said.
