    NEWPORT NEWS - The decision to seek no time behind bars for a former Newport News police officer who pleaded guilty to molesting two teenagers in the 1980s and 1990s came down to getting a sure conviction rather than taking chances with a jury trial on a long-ago case, a prosecutor said. Randolph D. Smith, 60, pleaded guilty Thursday to six counts of indecent liberties with children, getting a 45-year sentence - all of it suspended. All the incidents occurred while Smith was a sworn police officer.

    There are times, Bob Curley admits, when it’s hard to keep from focusing on dark thoughts, and today will be one of them because this is the 10th anniversary of his boy’s horrific death. “I’ll see kids who were his friends, all grown up, and wonder, what would he have been like now?

I can’t help thinking about things like that.” Jeffrey Curley, 10, was walking home from his grandmother’s house the day two homosexual lovers who were predatory pedophiles lured him into their car with the promise of...

Judith Levine, the author of the book, states that she is not completely opposed to sex between adults and children. Although she...

Church spokesmen did not dispute the results of the study, which is the first of its kind and depicts a far broader pattern than has emerged this year in Boston. That archdiocese's employment of known child molesters has made international news...
