Prostitute Aileen Wuornos, saying she was wrongly branded a serial killer, was sentenced to die in the electric chair for one of seven Florida highway slayings. "Law enforcement has labeled me a serial killer purposefully, for books and movies," Wuornos, 35, told a judge in Deland, Fla. "I'm no serial killer." Circuit Judge Uriel Blount imposed the death penalty for the murder of Richard Mallory.

Pitcher LaMarr Hoyt of the San Diego Padres begins his 45-day jail sentence at Eglin Air Force Base near Pensacola, Fla., this morning, but it's not like he's going to be dragging around a ball and chain. "No, LaMarr won't be on bread and water in an 8-by-10 cell with a three-watt light bulb," said Hoyt's attorney, Howard Frank, on Sunday. "This is not a maximum security facility."

A Texas judge unexpectedly dismissed obscenity charges on Monday against a San Antonio record store owner and chastised prosecutors in the case over an album by rappers 2 Live Crew. "It's beyond me that it would take six months to determine this is not a prosecutable case," Bexar County Court-at-Law Judge Tony Jimenez told assistant district attorneys, who requested that the charges against retailer Dave Risher, 36, be dropped. The dismissal came only hours before jury selection was to begin.
