At a college reunion, it's common for alumni to share post-collegiate achievements with each other.

But a report compiled for this year's 50th reunion class at Harvard University contained an unusual entry.

Ted Kaczynski, the so-called "Unabomber" and Harvard alumnus, listed his eight life sentences for a string of bombings that killed three people and wounded 23 others as an "award" in the class of 1962 report.

The Harvard Alumni Association said in a statement Thursday that they "regret publishing Kaczynski's references to his convictions and apologize for any distress that it may have caused others."

The Boston Globe published an apparent photo of the entry, which lists Kaczyn

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Thursday new proposals targeting individuals who sell SNAP cards, commonly known as food stamps, for cash.

The agency said individuals suspected of defrauding the system are requesting a large number of replacement cards.

Food stamp fraud has gone high-tech in recent years, with SNAP cards being sold on Craigslist and eBay, according to the USDA. There also have been attempts to sell the food assistance benefits through the popular social media sites Twitter and Facebook.

Replacement cards are issued to recipients on a case-by-case basis, but increased scrutiny is needed to root out the thieves, the USDA said.

Sexual misconduct by male correctional staff toward inmates at Alabama's Tutwiler Prison for Women is "commonplace" and has resulted in numerous women becoming pregnant while incarcerated, a complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Justice alleges.

Equal Justice Initiative, a private nonprofit organization, filed the complaint about the all-female prison in Wetumpka, Ala., Tuesday after receiving dozens of claims of sexual misconduct involving male staff between 2004 and 2011.

In interviews with more than 50 women incarcerated at the prison, EJI said it discovered "frequent and severe officer-on-inmate sexual violence," ranging from women being coerced into performing sexual favors

A California police chief already under fire for sending a cop to a reporter's house to complain about a story had several officers work overtime to hunt for his teenage son's stolen cellphone, authorities said Monday.

The cellphone incident occurred back in January, after Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan's son reported the device missing from his locker at Berkeley High School. The department did not file a police report about the incident, "an oversight that came to our attention when researching your questions," Sgt. Mary Kusmiss, a department spokeswoman, told the San Francisco News.

Sgt. Kusmiss is the same officer Meehan dispatched to a reporter's home after midnight in March

Police confirm they have discovered the body of a missing 19-year-old girl who investigators say disappeared after having a verbal argument with her boyfriend. HLN spoke with Euless Police Lt.

Amid reports of more than 1000 dogs sickened by chicken jerky pet treats imported from China, government health officials are ramping up port inspections for dangerous toxins.

Food and Drug Administration officials have begun collecting and testing chicken jerky treats upon import, analyzing samples for evidence of melamine and melamine analogs and diethylene glycol, chemicals used in plastics and resins, a spokeswoman said.

Melamine-tainted imported pet food sickened and killed thousands of dogs and cats in the U.S. in 2007, leading to massive recalls and criminal indictments of Chinese and American pet food executives. Advertise | AdChoices

FARMINGTON, Mich. - Jonathan Hoffman frantically told a 911 dispatcher he had been shot in the chest by his grandmother and was going to die, a police detective testified Monday.

By the time officers arrived at the family's upscale condo in a Detroit suburb, at least four more shots from a .40-caliber handgun had been pumped into the 17-year-old high school senior.

Hoffman's grandmother, 74-year-old Sandra Layne, has been charged with open murder in the shooting death of her grandson and held without bond. She stood mute in court during Monday's arraignment when the charge was read, and a not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.

An open murder charge allows a jury to decide on whe
