A former Littlerock High School quarterback was sentenced Friday to four years in state prison in the beating death of an 18-year-old man at a party in Palmdale. Richard Newton, 17, pleaded no contest in December to involuntary manslaughter in the killing of Christopher O'Leary, who died three days after he was punched and kicked in the head at the May 19 party. A more serious charge of murder was dropped Friday as part of a plea bargain.

A Lancaster construction worker was sentenced to 181 years in prison Tuesday for sexually assaulting six women in the Antelope Valley. Glenn Bernard Hilke, 38, who had previously served time in prison for rape, was convicted last month of 10 counts, including sodomy by force, kidnapping, robbery and other sexual assault charges. "He's one sick, dangerous person," Deputy Dist. Atty. John Portillo said. "It's good he'll never be in a position to do this again."
