But for Los Angeles-based composer Carlos Rodriguez, things are moving along at a steady, reassuring pace. This week, the 35-year-old Rodriguez will achieve a milestone when the Los Angeles Philharmonic presents the premiere of his 15-minute work "Fabulas."

A former Roman Catholic priest was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison for molesting two teenage brothers in Santa Paula more than a decade ago. Carlos Rene Rodriguez, 48, had faced more than 10 years behind bars, but prosecutors recommended the lesser penalty because he pleaded guilty last month, sparing the victims from having to testify at a trial. "He has betrayed God and his role to society," Deputy Dist. Atty. Anthony Wold said during the emotional afternoon sentencing.
