Henrico student named honoree for Jingle Bell Run/Walk

The Richmond Arthritis Foundation will hold its 13th annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk Dec. 5 at Mary Munford Elementary, and Henrico resident Kyleigh Broomell will be the 2015 Youth Honoree.

Broomell loves to dance, swim and run; she also just learned how to roller-skate. But some mornings, the active eight-year-old doesn’t even feel like getting out of bed. For the past six years of her young life, Broomell has been living with juvenile arthritis.

Arthritis in its various forms affects one in five people in the U.S., and 300,000 of them are children like Broomell. > Read more.

Coach convicted of possession of child pornography

A Richmond-area youth figure skating coach has been convicted on 15 counts of possession of child pornography following his guilty plea in Henrico County Circuit Court. David Keith Loncar, 47, was sentenced by Judge Burnett Miller to 145 years imprisonment, with 141.5 years suspended, resulting in three and a half years active imprisonment.

Loncar offered to distribute child pornography videos to an undercover police officer through a peer-to-peer file sharing network. The officer confirmed that the videos were child pornography and obtained a search warrant for the defendant's residence in Henrico County. The Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force subsequently executed the search warrant and seized Loncar's computer and other digital media. > Read more.
