RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Virginia state senator has submitted a bill to change the state's three-strikes law to restore parole eligibility in certain cases. Democratic State Sen. Scott Surovell confirmed to The Virginian-Pilot he submitted the proposed legislation Monday. The bill would amend a 1982 law that allowed offenders convicted of rape, robbery or murder to be deemed ineligible for parole if their three crimes were committed in a single spree, even if they hadn't been to prison before.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Jurors are hearing from an FBI informant in a sting against a police officer accused of attempting to support the Islamic State. The informant, identified only as "Mo" and hidden from public view, testified Tuesday that he pretended he was going to join the terror group as he went undercover to record Nicholas Young, a police officer with Washington, D.C.'s Metro system until his arrest last year. Young is the first law enforcement officer charged with trying to support the Islamic State.
