Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Ira Reiner said Thursday that former Lincoln Savings & Loan operator Charles H. Keating Jr. should receive the maximum 10-year sentence for cheating investors because anything less would "diminish the gravity" of his crime.

Marshall Redman got what he deserves. Last week, the 69-year-old developer who swindled as many as 2,500 buyers in an Antelope Valley land scam was sentenced to a year in jail and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine. Within hours of the sentencing, Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich blasted Redman's punishment as too light. Antonovich speculated that Redman could end up serving no time in jail. That must not happen.

A former principal of Firebaugh High School in Lynwood was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison for molesting four teenage girls. Jonas Vital Silverio, 41, who resigned shortly before his 2009 arrest, sat in a Compton courtroom as his victims and their mothers tearfully recounted the shame and trauma they endured at the hands of a man they once trusted. Silverio pleaded no contest in June to 10 counts of lewd acts on a child 14 or 15 years old. All but one of his victims played on the school's volleyball teams, which he coached.

A man has pleaded guilty to murdering a securities broker outside a Northridge deli in what authorities said may have been a contract killing. Marva DeCarlo Johnson, 31, of Pasadena pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of first-degree murder in the death of John Collett, 29, of Agoura Hills. Under the plea bargain arranged by prosecutors, Johnson will not face the death penalty. Instead, he faces a maximum sentence of life in prison, Deputy Dist. Atty. Robert Dver said.

Dale Hurd's children don't call him 'Dad' anymore. Not since he killed their mother. Hurd's son and daughter were at home when he shot a bullet into his estranged wife's heart. Charlie, four years old at the time, said he saw his mother stagger down the stairway, screaming, before collapsing in the hallway of the family's Culver City home. On Wednesday, Hurd, 63, was sentenced in a downtown courtroom to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of Beatrice Hurd.

A key witness in O.J. Simpson's Las Vegas trial acknowledged to a Nevada investigator that the former NFL star paid him off, the investigator told a judge in Santa Monica on Friday. The investigator from the Clark County district attorney's office said Alfred Beardsley, a loquacious collectibles dealer whose credibility was frequently assailed during the trial, claimed Simpson gave him his Hall of Fame ring in exchange for altering his testimony to help the defense.
