Black, white Santas draw some criticism

Students at St. Stephen Elementary School found out last week that Santa Claus can have the same skin color as them.

Student gets 15 years on terrorism charge

Berkeley County Sheriff Wayne DeWitt felt vindicated Thursday when he learned that a Florida college student his department arrested in Goose Creek last year on explosives charges had been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

Crime spree brings 35 years in prison

A man who confessed to a four-county crime spree that included shooting a companion in the head and leaving her body to be run over on a North Charleston railroad track was sentenced to 35 years in prison Thursday.

Otherwise, Warsop, 31, could have clogged courts from Charleston to Lancaster County if he sought multiple trials, largely for armed robbery cases.

Until recently, the family struggled to get by without health insurance. Although Leon now receives Medicaid benefits, medical expenses have caused him to fall behind on his mortgage payments. He is now facing a possible foreclosure.
