Federal charges sought in shootings


the Washington Post
WASHINGTON - Justice Department officials
ire scouring the U.S. criminal code to determine
whether the two boys arrested in the Jonesboro
;chool shooting might serve longer sentences if
'hey are tried under some sort of federal law.
Mitchell Johnson, 13, and Andrew Golden, 11,
ire too young under Arkansas law to be tried as
idults and thus face lengthy prison terms. The
)oys are being held on murder charges in the
,hooting of middle-school teacher and four stu-
dents Tuesday.

Under the state's juvenile justice system, even
if convicted of murder, they are likely to be set
free when they turn 18.
"What we're doing is going through all the various
federal statutes to see what might be effective,"
Attorney General Janet Reno said yesterday at her
weekly news conference.
"At this point, with respect to both, they could be
charged under certain federal crimes as juveniles. The
question remains about how long the jurisdiction
might be continued and whether they could be
charged as adults," Reno said.

In most states, juveniles are often not sentenced
to a specific term but instead put under the juris-
diction of a court or a social service agency until
they reach a certain age or are declared rehabili-
Reno said Justice Department officials are work-
ing with Paula Casey, the U.S. Attorney in Little
Rock, and local prosecutors are trying to determine
whether prosecuting the boys as juveniles under
federal law would allow the boys to be jailed until
they are 21 years old, the maximum age that juve-
niles can be held.

Billing records surface in Foster's attic
WASHINGTON - In a bizarre discovery in the late Vincent Foster's att
Whitewater prosecutors have landed a second set of Hillary Rodham Clintoi
once-elusive law firm billing records, lawyers said yesterday.
The records have fewer handwritten notations and fewer pages but genera
contain the same information as the set belatedly found in the White House
1996, the lawyers said.
Nonetheless, the documents have become a fresh line of inquiry for grand
questioning in Arkansas, where prosecutors are pressing to wrap up their inves
gation of the first lady's legal work for a failed savings and loan owned by 1
Whitewater business partner.
"You're sitting in the grand jury and the prosecutors read you an entry abc
Mrs. Clinton from one set of billing records, question you about it, then they pi
up the other set and read other entries about other meetings," said one recent gra
jury witness who spoke only on condition of anonymity.
Prosecutors are trying to determine if Clinton, while a private Arkansas attorni
assisted a series of fraudulent S&L land transactions in the mid-1980s carried c
by her business partner, the late James McDougal. They're also investigati
whether she lied about her work under oath or tried to conceal documents i
Whitewater investigation that began during her husband's presidency.

New policy to alter
transplant protocol
WASHINGTON - The Clinton
administration yesterday announced a
far-reaching new policy on organ trans-
plantation, aiming to ensure that organs
go to the sickest patients first, regardless
of where they live.
The current system, a patchwork of
regional plans, more often than not
favors patients by geography rather
than medical necessity, said officials
from the Department of Health and
Human Services.
"This is about living or dying,"
Health and Human Services Secretary
Donna Shalala told reporters at a brief-
ing. "This is about where you happen to
live affecting whether you live or die.
People are dying unnecessarily - not
because they don't have health insur-
ance, not because they don't have
access to care, but because of where
they happen to live. We need a level
playing field for all patients."
While the medical technology and
survival rates of organ transplantation

ly far exceeded the supply available I
It is estimated that 10 people eve
day die in the United States while wa
ing for a donated kidney, liver, hea
lung or other organ. 4

Visit to South Africa
a presidential first
CAPE TOWN, South Africa -
Hailing South Africa's triumph over
apartheid as an "affirmation of humanity
at its best;' President Clinton yesterday
became the first American president to
set foot in this nation that until four years
ago was an international pariah.
Escorted into the chamber of South
Africa's Parliament Building yesterday
afternoon by President Nelson
Mandela, who through decades of
protest and imprisonment rallied the
world against his country's state-sanc-
tioned racism, Clinton told the National
Assembly that South Africa had trans-
formed itself from a source of outrage
into a source of inspiration.
"Now the courage and the imagina-
tion that created the new South Africa
and the principles that guide your con-
stitution inspire all of us to be animat-
ed by the belief that one day humanity
all over the world can at last be released
from the bonds of hatred and bigotry,
Clinton said.

Clinton, halfway through a six-nati
Africa tour, is being accompanied
South Africa by an unusually large U
delegation--a heavily African Americ
assemblage of some 50 politicians,
ness executives and civil rights act
who arrived here yesterday on an a
Force jet and will accompany the pre
dent in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
