Langdon Scott has made plenty of wrong choices in his life. On June 27, 2009, he made a smart one. That day, the admitted drug dealer went to the Piazza at Schmidts apartment complex in Northern Liberties looking to buy $4,500 worth of cocaine. When it became clear the men he was riding with were planning a robbery, he bailed. "When you realized what it was, you said, 'I'm not going in there,' Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart told Scott during his sentencing Friday in the murders of Rian Thal, 34, and her friend Timothy Gilmore, inside the Northern Liberties apartment building.

The promised payoff was just too sweet: $50,000 to $60,000 to let three men through a locked lobby door at her apartment building in the flashy new Piazza at Schmidts complex in Northern Liberties. On Tuesday - four years after two people were killed by those three men - Katoya Jones' guilt and emotional anguish had plainly cost too much. It did not help that, after spending three years in prison before pleading guilty to two counts of third-degree murder, Jones, 29, was sentenced to probation by Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Benjamin Lerner.

A Montgomery County judge sentenced former Main Line house cleaner Andrea Lawton to 10 years on probation in the theft of two rare works of art from the Bryn Mawr home where she worked. The probation, for charges of burglary and conspiracy, will run concurrent with the six-year prison sentence that Lawton, 47, received in May for one count of interstate transportation of stolen property, when she took a bust of Benjamin Franklin out-of-state to find a buyer. The county sentence - and the return Friday of the last missing item taken in the heist - marks the end of the courthouse phase that began in 2012, after Lawton was caught with the rare Franklin bust, valued at $3 million, that she had stolen from lawyer George D'Angelo's home.

Two Camden charter schools and a third in Atlantic County have been added to the list of schools put on probation by the state Department of Education. The D.U.E. Season Charter School and Environment Community Opportunity (ECO) Charter School, both in Camden, and the Galloway Community Charter School have been put on probation after recent enhanced performance reviews found they were "not providing high-quality education" and warranted "immediate action," according to letters to the schools from Evo Popoff, the department's chief innovation officer.
