World War II veteran critically injured in home invasion


SACRAMENTO - He's a member of the greatest generation, but a home invasion has left him on life support.

John Masson, 92, was at his North Highlands home last week when suspects broke in and attacked him in the middle of the night.

Family members said it does not look good for Masson. Now, the only comfort the family has would be finding the people responsible for the attack and bringing them to justice.

Masson was leading an active life, even taking care of his step-daughter Akemi Girion, who was paralyzed in an accident three years ago. Girion said helping others came naturally to her father after a lifetime of service.

"World War II, Korean War and the beginning of Vietnam War, and my mother stopped it, enough is enough," Girion said.

Orangevale man pleads guilty in $1.5 million drug money case


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A man accused of transporting or shipping over $1.5 million in drug trafficking money has pleaded guilty to federal drug and money laundering charges in Ohio.

Justice Department officials say 25-year-old Samuel Flek, of Orangevale, California, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Columbus.

Court documents say a drug organization began paying Flek in 2012 to travel to Columbus to transport narcotics money from Ohio to California. He stored it in his luggage on flights and sometimes shipped it, investigators say. He's also accused of transporting marijuana from Columbus to Dayton.

Authorities say Flek could be facing decades in prison. Flek's attorney, Steve Nolder, says Flek hasn't been in trouble before, and he'll argue for a "reasonable sentence."
