Via David

On Monday, Alberto Lucero, 45, pleaded guilty in New Hanover County Superior Court to one count each of the rape of a child and taking indecent liberties with a child.

He was originally charged with multiple counts of child sexual assault, but those were dropped in exchange for his guilty pleas.

WECT reported:
Not only did DNA evidence tie Lucero to the crimes, but he also admitted to detectives that he sexually assaulted the victim multiple times.
The girl was raped repeatedly over a period of several years, according to investigators.

Lucero was sentenced to between 41 to 59 years in prison.

Russia launches airstrikes in northern Syria, senior military official says

Via u_96

Russian warplanes began bombarding Syrian opposition targets in the war-torn nation's north Wednesday, following a terse meeting at which a Russian general asked Pentagon officials to clear out of Syrian air space and was rebuffed, Fox News has learned.

A U.S. official said Russian airstrikes targeted fighters in the vicinity of Homs, located roughly 60 miles east of a Russian naval facility in Tartus, and were carried out by a "couple" of Russian bombers. The strikes hit targets in Homs and Hama, but there is no presence of ISIS in those areas, a senior U.S. defense official said. These planes are hitting areas where Free Syrian Army and other anti-Assad groups are located, the official said.
