The University of Connecticut will pay $1.28 million to settle a lawsuit filed by five students who charged that the university had treated their claims of sexual assault and harassment with indifference, the two sides announced on Friday in a joint statement.

One of the complainants, Silvana Moccia, a former hockey player at the university, will receive $900,000. Ms. Moccia charged that she was cut from the hockey team after reporting her rape to her coach. She joined the lawsuit in December, a month after it was filed by the other four women, who will receive payments ranging from $25,000 to $125,000.

The university continues to deny any wrongdoing and defends its policies of responding to instances of sexual misconduct, but it decided to settle the lawsuit because “no good would have come from dragging this out for years as it consumed the time, attention and resources — both financial and emotional — of everyone involved,” Lawrence D. McHugh, the chairman of the university’s board of trustees, said in a statement.

Former US Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald Coburn reported that the southern border is seeing “the kind of chaos we saw along the border prior to 9/11” and that “one in five” illegal aliens today has a criminal record in an appearance on Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Justice With Judge Jeanine.”

“One in ten of every adult male crosser[s] in this day and age more than likely already has a violent criminal record here in the United States, has been removed, and is returning. Another one in ten, making it one in five, is bringing with him or her their violent criminal tendencies and records from their own countries of which we don't know yet” Coburn said.

He also stated that drug cartels are mocking the US: “as a border security subject matter expert I am closely linked with the intelligence community. And we do watch the social networks, the electronic networks where we see the cartels boasting about their gains being made and laughing at the US government's handling of this situation...they are coming here not to contribute to society but to prey on society.” He also said the morale of the Border Patrol “has never been this poor.”

The US has pointedly criticised Russian arming of rebels in Ukraine as the world demanded answers over the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 by a suspected Russian-made missile, resulting in the death of all 298 people on board the civilian airliner.

The White House stopped short of directly blaming Russia for the plane’s destruction but linked its remarks on the disaster to the Kremlin’s support for separatists in Ukraine, urging Vladimir Putin’s government to stop inflaming the situation in the country and take "concrete steps" towards de-escalation.

The huge loss of life threatens to have wide-ranging and unpredictable consequences, coming just after the US imposed further sanctions on Russia for continuing to provide weapons to the rebels.

A 28-year-old man was arrested this week after he returned to order food at an El Pollo Loco in Costa Mesa hours after he allegedly burglarized it, police said.

Daniel Lee Warn was recognized by El Pollo Loco workers, police say, because he apparently didn't think to change his clothes in between the burglary of the fast food restaurant in the 1900 block of Harbor Boulevard and his return later in the day.

The attorney representing a high-priced escort charged in the heroin overdose death of a Google executive on his yacht in Santa Cruz says his client was encouraged to use drugs during the encounters, for which she was paid thousands of dollars.

Attorney Lawrence Biggam told reporters that his client, 26-year-old Alix Catherine Tichelman of Folsom, was engaged in "mutual consensual drug usage in the context of a sexual encounter initiated and encouraged by Forrest Hayes," the 51-year-old Google executive who was found dead on his yacht in November.

Tichelman was arrested in connection with the death earlier this month. She pleaded not guilty Wednesday to manslaughter, destroying evidence and several other charges related to administering and possessing heroin.

Laura Whitney and her husband, Michael Korte, don't know whether they're being good citizens during a drought or scofflaws.

On the same day the state approved mandatory outdoor watering restrictions with the threat of $500 fines, the Southern California couple received a letter from their city threatening a $500 penalty for not watering their brown lawn.

It's brown because of their conservation, which, besides a twice-a-week lawn watering regimen, includes shorter showers and larger loads of laundry.

In his first extended remarks on the fiery crash of a Malaysian airliner, President Obama confirmed Friday that at least one U.S. citizen was killed in a global tragedy he said should serve as “wake-up call” to end the conflict in Ukraine.

The president said Quinn Schansman, a Dutch and U.S. dual citizen, was traveling on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which left Amsterdam Thursday and ended in a field near Ukraine's eastern border with Russia. Schansman was one of 298 people killed when a missile struck the aircraft.
