A judge sentenced a prominent polygamist Friday to up to 10 years in prison, the maximum sentence, for having sex with his 16-year-old niece. District Judge David S. Young ordered David Ortell Kingston to serve two consecutive terms of up to five years each for incest and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Young also fined Kingston $10,000 and ordered him to pay court expenses. He was convicted June 3, after his niece testified that she became his 15th wife and that they had sex four times.

Well, I hope those Portland Trail Blazer basketball players are really proud of themselves. Six or seven of them took three underage girls into a Utah hotel room and had an all-night slumber party. Wasn't that sweet of them? Isn't it nice the way they took the message of Magic Johnson to heart? Pathetic, is what it was. No, not pathetic. Frightening. Grown men. In their 20s. Men who endangered their own lives. Who endangered the lives of others. And I don't mean the lives of consenting adults.

The NBA Players Assn. filed a grievance on behalf of two Portland Trail Blazers players who were suspended for three games without pay by the team as a result of a teen-age sex scandal in Salt Lake City. "We feel that with the decision by the Salt Lake County Attorney's office not to file charges, the fine and suspension are unreasonable," Charles Grantham, executive director of the players association, said Friday.
