Among a crowd of 5,000 at the Olympic archery complex, Justin Huish is not hard to find. Just look for a swirl of activity. Dozens of well-wishers and autograph seekers flock to where America's best archer sits with his family between sessions. He always obliges. After all, it wasn't so long ago that Huish, 21, was on the flip side of such scenes. "I know some people get irritated when they're asked to sign stuff, but I remember when I was on the other side of the fence," he said Tuesday.

Olympic gold medalist Justin Huish must serve four months in jail after pleading no contest to a felony charge that he sold marijuana out of his Simi Valley home. The 1996 archery champion could have received up to three years in prison. But citing Huish's lack of a criminal record, Ventura County Superior Court Judge Herbert Curtis on Wednesday decided on the lesser sentence. Prosecutors said they were satisfied, noting that Huish, 25, seemed remorseful. He must report to jail July 11.

An attorney for Olympic archer Justin Huish argued in court Wednesday that the gold medalist should not be held on drug-sale charges because he was providing marijuana for the treatment of an HIV patient. But that defense, raised during Huish's preliminary hearing, met a quick objection from a Ventura County prosecutor who said state law allows only qualified caregivers to treat medical marijuana patients.

Olympic gold medalist Justin Huish pleaded no contest Wednesday to a felony charge of selling marijuana out of his Simi Valley home. Huish, 25, made no comments to the court after entering his plea, which, for sentencing purposes, is the same as a guilty plea. In exchange, prosecutors will push for a 180-day sentence for Huish, who could have faced a maximum of three years in prison. Huish's roommate, Brian Mastrangelo, 24, also appeared in court Wednesday and agreed to waive a jury trial.

The Aug. 20 article trumpeting Justin Huish's prior arrest put your paper squarely in the ranks of the supermarket tabloids. The L.A. Times is now willing to publish derogatory information about any prominent individual's past, primarily for its titillation value. This trashy article (which took two reporters to write) could have been the story of a young athlete who righted himself and acquired the maturity and focus to become an Olympic champion. Instead, The Times took the low road of sensationalism.

Olympic gold medal archer Justin Huish was convicted of vandalism three years ago after acknowledging that he drunkenly spray-painted the property of an African-American couple whose mail box and driveway were initialed with the letters, "KKK." Court records show Huish, 21, who won two gold medals in Atlanta, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism in September 1993 after being charged with vandalism and a civil rights violation.

Olympic gold-medal archer Justin Huish has sought and won a judge's order erasing from his record all traces of a 3-year-old conviction for spray-painting the property of an African American couple whose mailbox and driveway were initialed with the letters "KKK." Municipal Court Judge Arthur Gutierrez agreed to expunge the September 1993 conviction from Huish's court file and excuse him from probation one month before the probation was to expire anyway.

Martina Hingis was as dominant as she has ever been, but she still lost her No. 1 ranking. Monica Seles, playing on a sore ankle, endured the worst beating of her career Thursday, losing to the top-seeded Hingis, 6-0, 6-0, in the semifinals of the Ericsson Open tennis tournament at Key Biscayne, Fla. Hingis' opponent in the final Saturday will be second-seeded Lindsay Davenport, who reclaimed the top ranking by edging 12th-seeded Sandrine Testud, 6-1, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5).
