No reprieve for French woman jailed in Mexico

Supreme court upholds 60-year term for woman jailed for kidnapping, but says police violated her rights.

    Mexico's supreme court says the decision to imprison a French citizen for 60-years for kidnapping will not be overturned.
    Florence Cassez was arrested in 2005 by federal officers at a ranch near Mexico City with her ex-boyfriend, Israel Vallarta, who was accused of heading a kidnapping gang called the Zodiacs.
    But the five-judge panel decided to leave open the option of a re-trial, saying the police had violated Cassez's rights.
