SAN DIEGO -- A 22-year-old Marine lance corporal was sentenced yesterday to eight years in the brig and a possible dishonorable discharge in connection with the killing of an unarmed Iraqi man last year, the toughest sentence yet meted out in the high-profile case. Lance Cpl. Robert Pennington pleaded guilty to kidnapping and conspiracy in the shooting death of Hashim Ibrahim Awad, 52, in the village of Hamandiya. In exchange for his plea, a murder charge was dropped. In previous hearings at Camp Pendleton on the case, a Navy corpsman was sentenced to 12 months in the brig, a private first-class to 18 months, and two lance corporals to 21 months each.

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- A Navy corpsman pleaded guilty yesterday to conspiracy and kidnapping in connection with the April death of an Iraqi man in which seven Marines are charged with murder. In a barely audible voice, Petty Officer 3rd Class Melson Bacos admitted that he conspired to take 52-year-old Hashim Ibrahim Awad from his home in Hamandiya, west of Baghdad, plant evidence near his body and lie to his superiors about the shooting incident. Col. Steve Folsom, the military judge, told Bacos that the charges could lead to a penalty of life imprisonment.

ETOBICOKE, Ontario -- If Awad, the horse named for a Palestinian peace activist, wins the $2 million Breeders' Cup Turf on Saturday here at Woodbine, Jim Ryan's share of the check will probably go to charity.Ryan, the 63-year-old owner of Ryehill Farm in Mount Airy, made his millions constructing houses. In the past six years, he has given away millions and devoted countless hours to various charities and causes -- from drug- and alcohol-rehabilitation programs for racetrack workers to housing developments for Palestinians on the West Bank.

Waving American flags and holding signs saying "God Bless Our Heroes" and "Liberate the Pendleton 8," demonstrators shouted and whistled as Marines entered and left the base.
