  • Ex-Baylor frat president indicted on 4 counts of sex assault won’t go to prison

    Even though Jacob Walter Anderson was indicted on four counts of sexual assault, the ex-fraternity president won’t spend a single day in prison. Instead, a plea agreement allowed the former Baylor University student to plead no contest to a lesser charge of unlawful restraint. That means if the 24-year-old successfully completes three years of deferred probation and pays a $400 fine, his criminal record will be wiped clean of the charge, CNN affiliate KWKTsaid. Anderson will have to complete alcohol, drug and psychological treatment […]

  • Michael Flynn asks federal judge to spare him from prison time in response to government sentencing memo

    Former national security adviser to President Donald Trump Michael Flynn has asked a federal judge to spare him from prison time, according to his defense team’s memo before his sentencing.

    When Guy Furay, who owns The Insurance Source in Greer, South Carolina, had a 61-year-old man and his wife come in looking for an alternative to pricey Obamacare insurance coverage, he had a solution: a short-term health plan. The couple, who were healthy and earned too much to qualify for federal subsidies, were facing a monthly premium of $2,350 for 2019 for an Obamacare-compliant policy that they rarely used. Instead, Furay found them a short-term plan for $800 a month. “He […]
