Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island officials say Sgt. Keith Knight, charged with child sex crimes in the Houston, Texas, area, has been kicked out of the Corps with an other-than-honorable discharge. Meanwhile in Texas, prosecutors are open to settling the case with a plea, according to Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Adam McLane. And they feel their case against Knight, who’s charged with two second-degree felony counts of promotion of child pornography, is strong.

What's it like getting a call from White House during class?

Ambriance Lamar, a senior at Whale Branch Early College High School, holds a letter, printed off the White House's website, that she wrote to President Barack Obama last October. In this video, Lamar, 18, describes the surreal experience of getting a call from the White House during school on Jan. 10, 2017. The reason for the call? The president had gotten her letter, and he was touched. Ambriance, who cannot talk, had written asking for help for the speech-impaired and deaf community. She did so after becoming scared for her life when she learned, last August, about the shooting death of a deaf and mute North Carolina man after he was pulled over for a traffic stop.
