Four brothers from a family of eight who face charges, including rape and incest, in connection with a decade-long sexual abuse case have been sentenced.
Multiple news outlets report investigators say six brothers abused a girl at their home in Hertford, North Carolina, starting when she was 4. She is now 17.
The brothers, ages 28 and 23, pleaded guilty Thursday to first-degree sex offenses and were sentenced to 12 -15 years in prison. A 20-year-old pleaded guilty to incest and a 22-year-old pleaded no contest. Both were sentenced to 20 months to two years.
Another brother goes to court July 20. A sixth brother hasn't accepted a plea deal. The brothers' parents are jailed on felony sex abuse charges.Fri, 22 May 2015 07:01:28 -0400

A Monroe man said the last time he saw his sister was when he told her goodbye at school one morning in 1973. For 42 years, he searched for his sister and recently saw a sketch that looked like her online. When he followed this lead, he found closure in his decades-long search.
The Boy Scouts national president, Robert Gates, urged the organization Thursday to let local troops decide if they want to allow gay adults as leaders. Some councils in New York City already defy the Scouts' current ban on gay adult participation. The policy will not change at the national meeting, Gates said.

The ever-wise elephant is technologically savvy, too, apparently.
Christian LeBlanc, 22, discovered this while studying abroad in Thailand two months ago. He and his girlfriend were on Koh Phangan Island when they "came across a couple of elephants." They fed the lot of animals with a 50-cent basket of bananas, he said, but the elephants wanted more food.
After getting "touchy" trying to find more food, the elephant eventually got a hold of LeBlanc's GoPro, which was still shooting.
Although LeBlanc said he can't officially take credit for the photo (that belongs to the elephant), he did say, "The result was world's first ever 'Elphie.'"
