DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (AP) - THE TOP U.S. AIR FORCE OFFICIAL IN THE MIDEAST SAYS THAT THE BALLISTIC MISSILE FIRED BY YEMENI REBELS THAT TARGETED THE SAUDI CAPITAL WAS FROM IRAN AND BORE "IRANIAN MARKINGS."

WASHINGTON (AP) - REPUBLICANS AREN'T SUPPOSED TO WORRY ABOUT ALABAMA. BUT IN THE SPAN OF A TUMULTUOUS AFTERNOON, A LOW-PROFILE SPECIAL ELECTION BECAME A REPUBLICAN NIGHTMARE THAT THREATENS A ONCE-SAFE SENATE SEAT. AND IT OFFERS A NEW WINDOW INTO UGLY DIVISIONS THAT CONTINUE TO PLAGUE THE GOP IN THE AGE OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. REPUBLICAN SENATE CANDIDATE ROY MOORE IS DENYING ALLEGATIONS OF DECADES-OLD SEXUAL MISCONDUCT WITH MINORS.

================================

A NATRONA COUNTY DISTRICT COURT JUDGE SENTENCED A CASPER MAN TO THE UPPER LIMIT OF THE RECOMMENDED SENTENCE FOR HIS SEXUAL ABUSE OF A MINOR.

JUDGE DANIEL FORGEY SENTENCED MATTHEW CONROY TO A FOUR- TO FIVE-YEAR SENTENCE FOR THE ABUSE OF A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHEN SHE SPENT THE NIGHT AT HIS HOUSE ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO.

THIRTY-FOUR-YEAR-OLD CONROY PLEADED GUILTY IN TO THIRD-DEGREE SEXUAL ABUSE OF A MINOR IN AUGUST.

IN EXCHANGE FOR THE PLEA, PROSECUTORS AGREED TO DISMISS THREE OTHER COUNTS OF SEXUAL ABUSE.

ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY TREVOR SCHENK TOLD FORGEY THAT CONROY SHOULD NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR PROBATION BECAUSE HE IS A TWICE-CONVICTED FELON FOR BURGLARY AND BEING AN ACCESSORY TO BURGLARY.

SCHENK RECOMMENDED A THREE- TO FIVE-YEAR PRISON TERM, SAYING A MESSAGE NEEDS TO BE SENT.

PUBLIC DEFENDER CURTIS CHENEY SAID CONROY HAS A DRINKING PROBLEM MORE THAN HE'S A DANGER TO THE COMMUNITY.

CHENEY ASKED FORGEY TO SENTENCE CONROY TO FIVE YEARS OF PROBATION, WHICH WILL ENABLE HIM TO RECEIVE SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT AND FAMILY SUPPORT.

BUT FORGEY SAID MUCH OF WHAT CHENEY SAID WILL HAPPEN IF CONROY IS ON PROBATION IS SPECULATIVE.

FORGEY THEN IMPOSED THE FOUR- TO FIVE-YEAR SENTENCE.

CHARGING DOCUMENTS SAY THE VICTIM'S GRANDMOTHER REPORTED THE CRIME TO EVANSVILLE POLICE IN SEPTEMBER 2016.

ELECTRONIC VARIABLE SPEED LIMIT SIGNS ARE NOW IN OPERATION ALONG A SEGMENT OF INTERSTATE 90 IN NORTHEASTERN WYOMING.

THE SIGNS, INSTALLED NEAR PINEY CREEK BETWEEN SHERIDAN AND BUFFALO, WILL ALLOW OFFICIALS TO REDUCE THE SPEED LIMIT IN INCREMENTS OF FIVE MILES PER HOUR TO AS LOW AS 30 MPH WHEN NECESSARY DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER. THAT STRETCH OF I-90 IS KNOWN FOR SEVERE WIND AND SURFACE CONDITIONS.

IT'S THE FIRST SECTION OF I-90 IN WYOMING TO HAVE THE VARIABLE SPEED LIMIT TECHNOLOGY. IN THE FUTURE, OFFICIALS PLAN TO HAVE THE VARIABLE SPEED LIMITS ON TWO ADDITIONAL SECTIONS: FROM THE MONTANA STATE LINE TO SHERIDAN, AND ON A STRETCH NEAR SUNDANCE.

WYDOT SAYS LONG-TERM STATISTICS SHOW UNSAFE SPEED PLAY A ROLE IN OVER 70 PERCENT OF WINTER CRASHES IN WYOMING. IN RESPONSE, WYDOT USES THE VARIABLE SPEED LIMITS AS WELL AS AN INFORMATION CAMPAIGN.

THE WINTER OF 2008-2009 SAW THE FIRST VARIABLE SPEED LIMIT SIGNS IN WYOMING INSTALLED ALONG I-80. STATISTICS FROM THE FIRST TWO WINTERS IN WHICH THE VARIABLE SIGNS WERE USED REPORTEDLY SHOWED FEWER CRASHES AND ROAD CLOSURES, SO WYDOT EXPANDED ITS USE OF THE SIGNS.

CASPER, WYO. (AP) - FLYERS CALLING THE HOLOCAUST A HOAX WERE POSTED IN UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING BUILDINGS DURING THE SCHOOL'S REMEMBRANCE WEEK FOR THE ESTIMATED 6 MILLION JEWISH PEOPLE KILLED IN THE 1930S AND '40S.

SIMILAR FLYERS WERE POSTED LAST YEAR DURING THE REMEMBRANCE WEEK.

AUTHORITIES SAY THAT WHILE THE FLYERS' MESSAGE IS PROTECTED BY THE FIRST AMENDMENT, THE ACT OF HANGING THEM IS NOT.

UNIVERSITY SPOKESMAN CHAD BALDWIN SAYS POSTING HANDBILLS VIOLATES A CITY ORDINANCE, SO THE CAMPUS POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING.

THURSDAY WAS THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE NIGHT OF BROKEN GLASS, A NAZI REGIME-ORGANIZED NIGHT OF WIDESPREAD VIOLENCE AGAINST JEWS, THEIR HOMES AND BUSINESSES IN GERMANY IN 1938.

HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR ESTELLE NADEL IS SPEAKING AT THE UNIVERSITY ON FRIDAY.

THE UNIVERSITY REMOVED THE FLYERS.
