A $15 grocery run has cost two single mothers from Colombia 48 days in jail — and the threat of a 14 year prison sentence — as a result of a crackdown on smuggling in Venezuela that's ratcheting up tensions and highlighting growing economic distortions between the neighbors.
Along with the cashier who rang up their purchases, they face charges of smuggling and violating the socialist government's new law of fair prices, whose penalties include 10 to 14 years in jail.
Colombian officials contend that the majority of their arrested citizens come from working-class families like Rojas' who for years have been crossing the porous border to take advantage of price caps that make goods there far cheaper.
Rojas has a stand selling underwear while Alvarez scrapes by charging pedestrians for cellular phone calls, according to Rocio Valencia, president of the city's street vendors' union.
A Cleveland state lawmaker has been convicted of two misdemeanor charges related to the purchase and re-sale of season Ohio State football tickets.
Democratic state Rep. Sandra Williams, a candidate for state Senate, pleaded no contest Friday in Franklin County court to charges she converted campaign funds for personal use and attempted to falsify a related campaign finance report.
A 21-year-old New York man is going to federal prison for more than six years for his role in a heroin trafficking case that led to the death of a Vermont man.
Joshua Rose was sentenced in federal court in Rutland on Thursday to 75 months in prison after a guilty plea to a charge he conspired to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin.
Federico Rosa told The Associated Press that Jeptoo tested positive for a banned substance in an out-of-competition test in Kenya weeks before she won a second straight Chicago Marathon title on Oct. 12.
"No athlete can win the World Marathon Majors Series title who has been in breach of IAAF anti-doping rules," the series said.
The investigation found that the East African country has problems with athletes from a number of sports using banned substances.
Brandon's resignation comes amid a dismal football season and concerns over the school's handling of everything from its concussions protocol to student seating at games.

Jeff Bell, New Jersey's Republican candidate for the U. S. Senate, has always been a long shot against Democratic incumbent Sen. Cory Booker, but that hasn't stopped some friends with deep pockets from trying to help.
The American Principles Fund, a political action committee with ties to a policy organization where Bell worked in Washington, has infused nearly a quarter of a million dollars into the race, mostly to oppose Booker.
Together, they're the largest independent expenditures in the race, according to Federal Election Commission documents, and they come as outside spending in this year's midterm election reaches new heights.
Fieler is chairman of the American Principles Project and sits on the board of the American Principles Fund that — all told — has spent $80,000 supporting Bell and $160,000 opposing Booker, FEC documents show.
The fund's spending, while helpful to the Bell campaign, pales in comparison to the outside spending from last October's special election.
