Priest sentenced for molesting girl, 11

A Catholic priest who pleaded guilty to inappropriately touching an 11-year-old Fairfax County girl last year was sentenced Friday to nine months in jail. Felix Owino, 45, was arrested in July after visiting a family in Herndon and watching a movie with them. The girl complained that Owino touched her over her clothes, and in September he pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery.

Jury starts capital murder deliberations

A Fairfax County jury began its deliberations Thursday afternoon after hearing closing arguments in the capital murder trial of Mark E. Lawlor, accused of killing Genevieve Orange in her Falls Church area apartment in September 2008. The jury deliberated for a little more than two hours, then decided to go home for the day. Since the trial has been taking Fridays off, to allow both the jurors and Fairfax Circuit Court Judge Jonathan C. Thacher to attend to other business, the jury will now take a four-day break, with the President's Day holiday on Monday postponing the case until Tuesday.

Not guilty ruling for Supreme Court case namesake

The Massachusetts man whose cocaine trafficking case led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling, and forced the Virginia General Assembly to hold a special session to amend state law, has been found not guilty by a jury near Boston. Luis Melendez-Diaz was first convicted in 2004 of dealing cocaine, after police apparently found some of the drug in a car in which he was riding. But the proof that the white powder actually was cocaine came into court only through lab reports. The defense demanded the right to cross-examine the people who actually tested the powder, and in 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that defendants should have that right, in the now famous ruling of Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts.
