Attorney to File Appeal in Caged Kids Case

NORWALK, Ohio (AP) - The attorney representing one of the parents convicted of caging some of their special-needs adoptive children says today he is officially appealing.

Ken Myers says he is heading to Norwalk this afternoon and plans to file an appeal on behalf of Sharen Gravelle at about 2 p-m.

Sharen and her husband Michael Gravelle were sentenced last month to two years in prison for mistreating the youngsters by forcing them to sleep in the cages. They said they did it for the youngsters' own safety.

The Gravelles have lost custody of the children.
