In 2008, several scared and hesitant young Cambodian girls stood before U.S. District Judge Dale Fischer to tell her what Michael Joseph Pepe had done to them. "Please don't allow this to happen again," one pleaded in a barely audible voice. "Thank you that you helped me find justice," another told her. Six years and a lengthy legal battle later, Fischer finally handed down a sentence Friday for the onetime U.S. Marine captain, convicted of sex acts with young girls in Cambodia: 210 years in prison, the statutory maximum, effectively a life sentence.

Members of the Rancho de los Palos Verdes Historical Society gathered to place a bronze plaque--set in white Palos Verdes stone--near Rolling Hills Road and Lariat Lane. Cars roared by and airplanes droned overhead as speakers addressed the crowd seated on rows of folding chairs.

It already had been a hard day's night for Valencia running back Chris Draft, and the first quarter wasn't even over yet. Most high school running backs would be satisfied with 115 yards total offense and three touchdowns in a game. But Friday night, Draft had done that with 40 seconds left in the first quarter.
