   Police believe a man shot to death in the St. Clair County Courthouse Monday afternoon took his own life.  

   St. Clair County Sheriff Richard Watson says it happened on the fourth floor of the parking garage about 4:30 p.m.  

   Police haven't released the man's name pending notification of family, but say he was 25-30 years old and had addresses in both Belleville and Caseyville, Illinois.  

   Watson says the man had not gone to the courthouse but to the probation office on the other side of the garage.

   Sheriff's deputies and Belleville police had initially closed down the garage thinking there might be a gunman still lurking.  It reopened about an hour later.

BOSTON (AP) - Former Boston crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger has been convicted in a string of 11 killings and other underworld crimes.

The 83-year-old Bulger faces life in prison after being convicted Monday of committing or playing a role in the killings during the 1970s and '80s while he led the Winter Hill Gang, Boston's Irish mob.

Bulger was one of the nation's most-wanted fugitives after he fled Boston ahead of a 1994 indictment. He was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011.

He is accused of shooting or strangling some of the victims himself. In other cases, he allegedly ordered the slayings or participated in some other way.

Sentencing delaying in corruption trial

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — A federal judge has again delayed the sentencing of a former Madison County treasurer to allow him to continue cooperating with a federal corruption investigation.

U.S. District Judge David Herndon on Friday delayed Fred Bathon's sentencing from August 30th until December 6th. Earlier this year the judge delayed Bathon's sentencing from May until August.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports Bathon's attorney filed a motion requesting the delay. Prosecutors didn't object.

Bathon pleaded guilty in February to rigging 2005-2008 tax lien auctions so that his political donors profited from inflated penalties paid by property owners.

Bathon could receive a prison sentence of between 31 and 40 months, though his sentence could be reduced because of his cooperation with investigators.

The call for help is going out in Florissant.

Police are asking residents to keep an eye out for copper thieves in the area. Police say the burglars target unoccupied homes to remove the copper piping. They take the piping and sell it to scrap yards. The thieves often dress as construction workers to confuse neighbors.

Police are encouraging anyone who notices suspicious activities to report them.

Man sentenced for decades-old burglaries

WARRENTON, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for a long string of burglaries dating back more than two decades.

A Warren County judge on Tuesday sentenced 31-year-old George Dustin Augusta III of Truesdale. He pleaded guilty in June to 14 counts of burglary and 14 counts of stealing for crimes dating to the 1980s.

Augusta told authorities he broke into the homes to steal items and sell them so he could pay child support.

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - Thousands of St. Louis area residents hoping to avoid extended legal entanglements are flocking to events this week that give low-level offenders a second chance to resolve outstanding warrants and avoid arrest.

Hundreds came to St. Louis Community College's Florissant Valley campus Wednesday morning to receive vouchers they can use at participating courts. The vouchers and a nominal payment allow participants to schedule future court dates on their own rather than going to jail if stopped for an unrelated traffic violation.

Event organizer James Clark of the Better Family Life community group emphasizes that the program is not a "get out of jail free card." He says it helps keeps otherwise law-abiding citizens out of the penal system while also generating needed revenue for the 43 participating municipalities.
