Christie Smith reports. The Oakland teen who set a gender non-conforming high school student's skirt on fire on an AC Bus last year pleaded no contest Thursday to charges of felony assault and inflicting great bodily injury, and agreed to serve seven years in prison. Richard Thomas, now 17, will be sentenced on Nov. The hate crime and aggravated mayhem charges, which carried a sentence of up to life in prison, were dropped. The parents of Sasha Fleischman, who identifies as agender rather than as male or female, said in a statement that they had "mixed emotions" about the prison sentence. They have long fought to have Thomas tried in juvenile court, not as an adult.

We like Ike! Richards scored 24 points to lead Orem to an easy victory at home. Richards took advantage of a smallish Canyon View team and established himself on the low block. His teammates — specifically Puka Nacua, Ethan Slade and Taft Mitchell — took turns threading passes through the Falcons defense and Mitchell made the visitors pay. He scored on a turnaround jumper then dropped dimes to Richards and Ryan Clayton for a lead. Orem led at the end of the quarter and went on a run to push that advantage to midway through the second. The Tigers poured in 27 points in the quarter, and Nacua picked up another pair of assists on baskets by Richards and Slade for a lead at halftime.
