  If Trump gets convicted of the Espionage Act, he faces a 10-year prison sentence, legal analyst says And if he's convicted of inciting the Capitol riot, the length of that sentence might just increase, legal analyst Lisa Rubin told MSNBC.The statute "that puts him in the most danger is far as I know right now, is 18 U.S.C. §§ 793, that's a portion of The Espionage Act, for which each violation carries a maximum penalty of 10 years," said Lisa Rubin, legal analyst with the Rachel Maddow Show.

Aug. 16—It was the first day of school — kind of — at La Serna High, and it looked like a group of celebrities were being welcomed on to campus on Tuesday, Aug. 16.

But actually, the celebrities at La Serna were the incoming 670-member freshman class.

They were welcomed by 100 returning students who split into two lines — gauntlet style — allowing the Class of 2026 to walk in between and were cheered on with chants such as, "let's go freshmen" as they entered the school's gymnasium. Regular school for all students will begin on Wednesday.

"Freshman first day is an opportunity for us as a school to welcome our freshmen, get them to get involved and embrace them into our La Serna culture," Griselda Castro, who is in her third year as La Serna principal, said.

So-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law confuses some Florida schools

  So-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law confuses some Florida schools TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Some Florida schools have moved library books and debated changing textbooks in response to a law critics call “Don’t Say Gay” — and some teachers have worried that family pictures on their desks could get them in trouble. As students return from summer break, educators are cautiously adjusting and waiting to see how the new law governing lessons on gender and sexual orientation will be interpreted and enforced. The new law, championed by Florida’s GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, bans lessons on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade as well as material that is not deemed age-appropriate.

"We have them meet their teachers and not feel like the first day they're completely lost," Castro said. "It gives them a good introduction to our school."

After entering the gym, many returning students, including the cheer squad, ASB and Link crew, held cheering, team building and other activities for the freshmen. After lunch — they ate pizza, the freshmen in the afternoon then met all of their teachers.

Similar ceremonies at La Serna were held at the four other Whittier Union High School District schools.

Freshman First Day has been held by the district since 2004.

The welcome for freshmen was appreciated, several said in interviews.

"It was exciting and made the experience fun for us," Julianna Franco said. "I was really excited to get into school spirit. I know La Serna has a lot of that."

Many students said they were nervous but excited.

"It's a whole bunch of emotions, I guess," Tyler Duenas said. "It's my first day of school and I don't know what's going to happen."

Flynn Garner, who came with his twin brother, Zane, had similar feelings.

"I'm a little nervous because once you go to high school there's nothing after it. You could go to college. I have four years but time can go fast.

Some were in no hurry for school to begin, such as Anthony Reynoso, who said he is sad that he no longer can sleep in until 10 a.m.

Students will get an extra half hour in the morning with the state's new rules mandating high schools start at 8:30 a.m.

Alyhssa Uribe said she will miss her summer break.

"I got to spend a lot of time with my mom," Uribe said.

But others are looking forward to school starting.

"It should be fun," Jaine Hernandez said. " get to see new people, new teachers and more fun people in the school."

A school district in Missouri has announced it will reinstate spanking with a paddle in classrooms this school year. The Cassville School District board approved the policy change in June and recently notified parents. The disciplinary measure was previously banned by the 1,900-student Barry County district in 2001. Cassville Superintendent Merlyn Johnson said parents had expressed frustration that corporal punishment was no longer allowed. Parents have said, 'why can't you paddle my student?' and we're like 'We can't paddle your student, our policy does not support that, Merlyn Johnson, Cassville School District Superintendent. The new policy allows the use of corporal punishment but only as a “last resort.” The policy also requires written permission from the parents of the student and a witness to be present.
