After 400 Years, British Witches Acquitted

In 1612, in the English city of Lancaster, 12 women were convicted of witchcraft, with 10 of them being punished by hanging.  In a retrial held in a shopping center, they have much more recently received "not guilty" verdicts.

There have been no reports about whether any of the defendants were accused of turning anyone into a newt.  Read the story at the Lancashire Evening Post.
