A former Cedars-Sinai Medical Center employee was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison after pleading guilty Monday to stealing patient information to defraud insurance firms of $354,000. The hospital had sent letters in December to more than 1,000 patients, warning them that their information had been found during a search of the home of James Allen Wilson, who worked in the billing department from 2003 to 2007.

Jose (Dreamer) Gonzales was trapped on enemy turf. The Halloween night brawl between two rival Long Beach street gangs had run its brutal course, but Gonzales was stranded when his friends piled into their beat-up cars and screeched away. Frantically trying to escape, Gonzales scampered down an alley. It was a mistake; half a dozen toughs from the rival gang cornered the 20-year-old. They swarmed over him, landing blows with fists, two-by-fours and a shovel.

Three Hartford police officers were arrested on charges stemming from the videotaped pistol-whipping of a motorist and an alleged cover-up attempt. A camera inside a police cruiser caught 10 seconds of the Feb. 14 beating outside the police station in suburban Bloomfield, which followed a 3-mile chase from adjacent Hartford. The officers said they chased 37-year-old James Wilson because they thought he was a fugitive who had attacked a police officer in a separate incident.

When "House" debuted on Fox in the fall of 2004, coverage quickly evolved into two basic story lines: Sherlock Holmes and Hugh Laurie. That the character of medical detective/misanthrope Gregory House was based on the world's most famous detective was an instant source of rousing geek-joy among those who write about television because, among other things, it allowed us to establish some smarty-pants literary credibility. The same was true with Laurie, who, at the time, was known in the States mostly for playing Bertie Wooster to Stephen Fry's Jeeves in the British series "Jeeves and Wooster."
