Denver bank robbery suspect hams it up in mug shot
DENVER (AP) — A man captured after authorities say he tried to flee a bank robbery in Denver doesn't seem too upset about his arrest.

The mug shot taken after 45-year-old Michael Whitington's Sept. 23 arrest shows him with a broad, toothy smile and his eyes open wide.

Police say he robbed a bank on Denver's 16th Street pedestrian mall and then tried to get away on a light-rail train. Officers stopped the train a few blocks away and arrested him.

He has been charged with one count of robbery and is due to appear in court on Tuesday to be advised of the charge.

He's being held in jail, and it's not clear whether he has a lawyer yet.

Marijuana industry makes political donations
DENVER (AP) — Marijuana entrepreneurs are taking another step into the mainstream by becoming political donors.

Marijuana businesses are using some of their profits to support cannabis-friendly candidates and ballot questions that could bring legal pot to more states. The political activity includes swanky fundraisers at Four Seasons hotels and art auctions. And members of Congress who once politely returned the industry's contribution checks are now keeping them.

Patrick McManamon is head of Cleveland-based Cannasure Insurance Services, which offers insurance to marijuana growers and dispensaries. He says if pot-based businesses don't contribute, they "can't help shape what happens" in the industry.

Medical marijuana sellers have given to candidates since the late 1990s. The arrival of recreational pot in Colorado and Washington has helped expand the industry and its political influence.

Selecting jurors to choose life or death for Arias
PHOENIX (AP) — Jury selection has begun in the penalty retrial of convicted murderer Jodi Arias, and some potential jurors already have been excused because they said they couldn't be impartial.

Prosecutors in Arizona will again seek the death penalty after a previous jury deadlocked on punishment for Arias in the case that became a tabloid TV sensation.

About 300 prospective jurors will report to the courthouse Monday, with more to come if an impartial panel cannot be found among the first group.

Arias acknowledged killing Travis Alexander in 2008 at his suburban Phoenix home but claimed it was self-defense. He suffered nearly 30 knife wounds, had his throat slit and was shot in the head.

Prosecutors argued it was premeditated murder carried out in a jealous rage when Alexander wanted to end their affair.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Jury selection is beginning Monday in the penalty retrial of convicted murderer Jodi Arias, as prosecutors again seek a death sentence in the Arizona case that became a tabloid TV sensation.

About 300 prospective jurors will report to the courthouse in Phoenix, with more to come if an impartial panel cannot be found among the first group. A previous jury deadlocked on punishment.

Arias acknowledged killing Travis Alexander in 2008 at his suburban Phoenix home but claimed it was self-defense. He suffered nearly 30 knife wounds, had his throat slit and was shot in the head.

Prosecutors argued it was premeditated murder carried out in a jealous rage when Alexander wanted to end their affair.

The 34-year-old Arias, a former waitress, was found guilty last year. The murder conviction will stand as lawyers spar once again over whether she should die for the crime.

If the new jury fails to reach a unanimous decision, the death penalty will be removed as an option and a judge will sentence Arias to spend her life behind bars or to be eligible for release after 25 years.

Arias' five-month trial began in January 2013 and was broadcast live, providing endless cable TV and tabloid fodder, including a recorded phone sex call between Arias and the victim, nude photos, bloody crime-scene pictures and a defendant who described her life story in intimate detail over 18 days on the witness stand.

Alexander's family sat in the front row of the courtroom throughout the trial, often sobbing, looking away from horrific photographs, and wincing as Arias described the victim as an abusive boyfriend who wanted nothing but sex.

It was a far cry from the man Alexander presented himself to be publicly — a devout Mormon in search of his soul mate.

The family will now have to sit through several more months of testimony and evidence as Arias' attorneys try to save her life.

"I don't want these nightmares anymore. I don't want to have to see my brother's murderer anymore. I don't want to hear his name dragged through the mud," Stephen Alexander told jurors through tears during Arias' first penalty phase.

The retrial, expected to last until mid-December, will not be televised live this time after the judge ruled that no video footage can be broadcast until after the verdict.

Suit: Papa John's fired worker with Down syndrome
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A federal agency is accusing Papa John's Pizza of breaking the law when they fired a Utah employee with Down syndrome.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced Monday that it had filed suit against the company and is seeking back pay and damages for former employee Scott Bonn.

Representatives for Papa John's did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Federal officials say Bonn had been working successfully at the restaurant in Farmington, Utah, with the help of an independently employed job coach. But when an operating partner visited the store and saw Bonn working with the coach, the partner allegedly ordered Papa John's to fire Bonn.

The EEOC says the restaurant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act, which allows accommodations such as a job coach when needed.

California adopts 'yes means yes' sex-assault rule
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill that makes California the first in the nation to define when "yes means yes" and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports.


Brown's office announced that he signed the bill Sunday.


State lawmakers last month approved SB967 by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, as states and universities across the U.S. are under pressure to change how they handle rape allegations.


De Leon has said the legislation will begin a shift in how college campuses in California prevent and investigate sexual assaults. Rather than using the refrain "no means no," the definition of consent under the bill requires "an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity."


The legislation says silence or lack of resistance does not constitute consent. Critics said it overreaches and sends universities into murky legal waters.
