Los Angeles County leaders unanimously approved a $16.5-million agreement on Tuesday to hire a firm to provide security at 44 courthouses and two other county facilities when sheriff's deputies are unavailable. The agreement approved by the county Board of Supervisors with RMI International is for one year, with options of extending it for an additional four and a half years. “The [Sheriff's] Department does not currently have sufficient numbers of officers and assistants to fill all the security positions, nor to maintain a pool of substitute security assistants,” according to a staff report signed by Sheriff Lee Baca.

A Tustin woman convicted of selling $50 worth of cocaine became the first Orange County defendant to receive the maximum penalty under the state's new "three strikes" law Friday when she was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. Joyce Demyers, 36, grimaced as she heard the judge pronounce her sentence, and then glanced back at her two weeping daughters.
