Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/11/2014 - 06:07
By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - Mohegan Sun agreed on Thursday to pay Boston $18 million a year to compensate the city for any negative side effects if the Connecticut-based gambling resort succeeds in its efforts to build a casino in neighboring Revere.

In addition to 15 years of $18 million payments, Mohegan Sun, which operates a casino in neighboring Connecticut, agreed to make $30 million in investments in East Boston and $45 million in transportation improvements.

Virginia police won't seek nude photo of teenager in sexting case

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/11/2014 - 06:04
Virginia authorities on Thursday said they will not serve a search warrant for evidence in a juvenile sexting case, which the 17-year-old defendant's lawyer said included demands for a picture of the teen's erect penis. The warrant was part of a felony case against the unnamed teen, who Manassas City Police said sent a pornographic video to a 15-year-old female despite repeated requests by the girl's parent for him to stop. The teen's attorney, Jessica Foster, said the warrant would have allowed police to take the teen to a hospital and force an erection, then compare the pictures with existing evidence. "It is not the policy of the Manassas City Police or the Commonwealth Attorney's Office to authorize invasive search procedures of suspects in cases of this nature and no such procedures have been conducted in this case," the department said in a statement on its website.
