The jury was unable to reach verdicts on 11 of the 40 counts in the indictment, and it found three of the 12 defendants not guilty on two charges apiece. U.S.

Four "freemen" who refused to walk into court were forcibly rolled into the room in wheelchairs Friday and sentenced to prison for their part in the anti-government group's 1996 standoff with the FBI. A fifth who agreed to come to court was freed. The four who refused to go to court--Steven C. Hance, 48; his sons, James E. Hance, 25, and John R. Hance, 21; and Jon Barry Nelson, 42--were found guilty of being accessories after the fact to the armed holdup of an NBC television news crew.

Louis Mitchell Jr. saw a brilliant opportunity when thousands of Georgia motorists abandoned their cars on snow-paralyzed roads this week, authorities say. Police say he used a tow truck he had stolen earlier in January to haul away four cars left on roads -- and without anyone's permission. Online jail records show the Atlanta Police Department also arrested Mitchell on suspicion of driving with a suspended or revoked license, using a fake license plate, damaging property and three instances of forgery.

It took 20 million years of wind and water erosion to form an eye-catching, mushroom-shaped boulder in a Utah state park. Heaving the stone off its perch took a man just 10 seconds, and the action sparked international disgust. A pair of former Boy Scout leaders who said they destroyed the rock formation to protect people from being crushed by it were charged with felony mischief this week, Utah state parks officials announced. In October, David Benjamin Hall, 42, taped Glenn Tuck Taylor, 45, pushing the stone to the ground.
