Javier Galindo was 22 - "young, dumb," he said - when police in Cape May County stopped the minivan he was driving and found a gun inside in 2005. Galindo, a U.S. Army veteran, said he had bought the weapon legally in Texas and carried it out of habit, not knowing it was illegal in New Jersey. He was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, served a few months behind bars, and tried to move on. But there was a problem. The conviction would remain on his record for 10 years - the length it generally takes in New Jersey to have a crime expunged - and would follow him every time he filled out a job application.

On a breezy Saturday afternoon, the Cherokee baseball team's fifth win of the season was pretty much that - a breeze. The Chiefs jumped out to an early lead and watched as their two pitchers dominated to beat Millville, 5-1, in a quarterfinal game in the Grand Slam Tournament at home. Senior ace Nick Snyder was strong through 51/3 innings, allowing just one unearned run and three hits, and sophomore Jack Walters closed out the game for the save. Cherokee (5-0) put three runs on the board in its first at-bat, taking advantage of a Millville miscue.

The Cumberland County (N.J.)

"We're always concerned about how neutral policing strategies affect communities, and obviously the data's important to assess that," Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said Tuesday.

MARK CUBAN is still trying to get over losing DeAndre Jordan to the Clippers. Last month, the Mavericks owner publicly announced that the 6-11 free-agent center had agreed - verbally - to sign with Dallas. But then Jordan changed his mind and re-signed with the Clippers. The incident embarrassed Cuban who, in addition to not getting Jordan, was hit with a $25,000 fine from the NBA for commenting on the deal before the signing deadline. Yesterday, Cuban discussed the matter with ESPN radio's Colin Cowherd.
