Saying she was sending a message to any American who would consider traveling abroad to sexually exploit children, a federal judge on Friday sentenced a retired U.S. Marine captain convicted of having sex with young girls in Cambodia to life in prison. Michael Joseph Pepe, 60, was convicted in 2008 of illegal sex acts with seven girls ages 9 to 12. Six of the girls flew to the U.S. to testify at trial that Pepe, who was working as a civilian teacher in the country at the time, had drugged, bound, beat and raped them in his compound in Phnom Penh.

A federal judge's refusal to halt a businessman's tax-fraud trial so he could be at his son's deathbed was cause to overturn the businessman's conviction, an appeals court has ruled. U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer also prejudiced the case against Garth Kloehn by failing to inform the jury that he was absent for the final day of trial because his son had died, the appeals panel said. Fischer told the jury that Kloehn "has a right not to be here," possibly leaving jurors with the impression that he was showing a lack of respect for the court, the judges said.

The federal judge hearing the criminal case against Los Angeles private detective Anthony Pellicano denied a request Tuesday for a mistrial from one of his co-defendants, former Los Angeles Police Department Sgt.
