Vancouver Canuck forward Todd Bertuzzi received a conditional discharge after pleading guilty to assault Wednesday, more than nine months after slugging Colorado forward Steve Moore from behind during a game. The sentence, which leaves Bertuzzi without a criminal record, was the one recommended by the prosecutor after Bertuzzi agreed to a plea bargain. "I have concluded that the imposition of a discharge is not contrary to the public interest," Judge Herb Weitzel said Wednesday night.

Florida changed the rules Thursday to make it easier for convicted felons who have done their time to regain the right to vote and other civil rights. Florida is one of only a few states that do not automatically restore most rights when felons have served their time. Instead, those who have committed certain crimes must go before the state clemency board for a hearing, and the process can take years.

Nearly three of every four adult homicide victims in Washington last year had an arrest history, according to an analysis of court records that casts new light on why the city has one of the highest homicide rates in the country. Although the total of 248 killings last year was a sharp drop from the homicide tolls of the late 1980s and early 1990s, there is a resilient "criminal subculture" in the city that is well-armed and entrenched, said Police Chief Charles Ramsey. "It's a huge problem."

The Transportation Security Administration screener force at LAX exemplifies the skill and dedication of our screeners nationwide.
