Happening in the US: A Florida man was sentenced to two and a half years in prison yesterday for stealing money from families under the false pretense that it would go towards tuition for a sports camp.

Alongside prison time, he has been ordered to pay over $575 thousand and forfeit over $443 thousand. (AP)

Happening in NYC: The emergency exit gates at three subway stations—138th street-Third Avenue, Flushing Avenue, and 59th Street—will soon take 15 seconds to open. The change is intended to prevent fare evasion. The three stations where the delay will be implemented were chosen by the MTA because they have enough turnstiles for riders to escape emergencies without using the gate. The delayed gates are part of a larger effort to deter fare evasion which also includes modifying turnstiles and hiring extra security. (Gothamist)
