From’s Today’s Brief comes a pointer to this article about former Boston-area nanny Louise Woodward’s new job training to be a solicitor in the U.K. town of Oldham. In 2001, Woodward was convicted of second-degree murder in the 1997 death of 8-month-old Matthew Eappen. The conviction was later reduced to involuntary manslaughter and Woodward was allowed to return to her home in England.
