The Price of Silence: The Duke Lacrosse Scandal, the Power of the Elite, and the Corruption of Our Great Universities by William D. Cohan is the definitive, magisterial account of what happens when the most combustible forces in American culture— unbridled ambition, intellectual elitism, athletic prowess, aggressive sexual behavior, racial bias, and absolute prosecutorial authority—collide and then explode on a powerful university campus, in the justice system, and in the media.

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — A Connecticut man who became known as the "East Coast Rapist" for a series of sexual assaults over more than a decade from Rhode Island to Virginia has been sentenced to life in prison.

The three life terms imposed Friday on Aaron Thomas of New Haven, Conn., followed his guilty plea last year in Manassas, Virgina for abducting three teenage trick-or-treaters and raping two of them on Halloween 2009 in Prince William County.

On Feb. 17, 1970, physician Jeffrey MacDonald called the police to his Fort Bragg, N.C., home. He told the responding officers that he had been assaulted by a group of "hippie" intruders, who had also bludgeoned and stabbed his wife and two young daughters — ages 2 and 5 — to death. MacDonald suffered a concussion and collapsed lung but survived.

Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has arrived at a Pennsylvania courthouse for the start of his child sex-abuse trial.

Sandusky arrived at the courthouse in Bellefonte on Monday morning along with defense attorney Joe Amendola. He smiled briefly for cameras before walking inside.

A jury of seven women and five men are scheduled to hear opening statements in the case, ending months of pretrial wrangling in the high-profile case that led to the firing of legendary late Penn State coach Joe Paterno. Many of the jurors have strong ties to the university.
