Shawn Vaughn faces up to two life sentences for the incident that left 30-year-old John Powers paralyzed from the waist down. Yesterday - Vaughn told Circuit Judge Clifford Weckstein that he didn't know the robbery was part of the plan when he and Phillip Alex Foreman called for a cab early on April first. But prosecutors say the men shot Powers - and the bullet severed his spinal cord and lodged in his aorta - where it remains today. They also stole about two hundred dollars.

Pulaski Police announced this week that they're asking local pharmacists to fingerprint any customers who they believe might be trying to fraudulently obtain otherwise legal narcotics.
The invisible ink fingerprinting would be done at the pharmacist's discretion, targeting the abuse of drugs like the painkiller OxyContin.
The Virginia A-C-L-U says honest people who are legally purchasing prescriptions will have a visceral reaction to the fingerprinting.
