Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ex-Ohio Education Official Faces Prison Term
A judge is ready to sentence a former high-ranking Ohio Department of Education official who pleaded guilty to a single count of possession of child pornography.
John Childs, the department’s former chief financial officer and chief operating officer, could face nearly four years in prison at Friday’s hearing in federal court in Columbus.
Prosecutors are recommending a lower sentence of six months plus five years probation, citing Childs’ lack of criminal history and cooperation.
Childs, who pleaded guilty in April, was fired Nov. 2 after the agency was provided evidence related to a State Highway Patrol investigation.
The Education Department says Childs worked on the agency’s financial side, never had an educator’s license, and was not in contact with children as a state official.
