STATE COLLEGE, PA (AP) — A judge has ordered Jerry Sandusky jailed unless he can pay $250,000 bail on the latest child sex abuse charges against him.

Senior Magisterial District Judge Robert E. Scott also said Wednesday that if Sandusky posts bail, he must submit to electronic monitoring. It was not immediately clear if Sandusky was to be released.

Prosecutors had sought $1 million in bail.

Sandusky faces new charges based on the testimony of two new accusers, including one who claims Sandusky molested him numerous times in a basement bedroom.

Sandusky wore blue sweat pants and a gray sweat shirt to the hearing. He was arrested at his home by state police and driven to the magistrate.

Sandusky’s lawyer has not responded to the latest charges. Sandusky has said he is innocent.

NC State Bar issues complaint against Easley

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina State Bar has filed a formal disciplinary complaint against former Gov. Mike Easley after he was convicted last year on a campaign finance-related felony.

The governing body for the state’s lawyers issued the complaint Wednesday, nearly a year after the two-term Democratic governor agreed to have his license suspended while the bar reviewed his case. The bar’s complaint said the felony violation “shows professional unfitness” as defined in the bar’s administrative code.

The complaint could lead to a trial before a three-member bar panel, which could determine whether Easley broke bar rules and, if so, what kind of punishment he should receive.

Easley accepted criminal responsibility in court in November 2010 for failing to disclose a helicopter flight he took in 2006.

HHS says no to over-the-counter morning-after pill

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s health secretary says young teenagers cannot buy the Plan B morning-after pill without a prescription – a surprise move overruling her own experts, who were preparing to let it be sold on drugstore shelves like condoms.

The pill can prevent pregnancy if taken soon enough after unprotected sex. Currently, only those 17 or older can buy Plan B One-Step without a prescription, if they show a pharmacist proof of age.

The Food and Drug Administration was preparing to lift that age limit and let the emergency contraceptive be sold over the counter to anyone. But Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled the agency, saying she was concerned that very young girls couldn’t properly understand how to use it without guidance from an adult.
