 From NPR news in Washington. I'm Louise Schiavone. Actor comedian1 Bill Cosby was arraigned2 outside of Philadelphia today on charges of sexual assault with bail3 set at 1million dollars. WHYY's Bobby Allyn reports that Cosby showed up for the proceedings4 at the courthouse in Elkins Park Pennsylvania. “Cosby walked slowly into the courtroom with a cane5, wearing a grey hood6 sweater and black sweatpants. As television helicopters flew above and reporters yelled questions at him, he ignored all of them. He had given up his passport and he is out on bail until his next hearing in two weeks. The charges come shortly before a Pennsylvania's twelve years statue of limitation on felony sex crimes would have run out.” Cosby's attorney Monique Pressley says the defense7 team was not surprised by the charges and that with a vigorous defense, Cosby will be exonerated8

Tonya Couch has been deported10 from Mexico to the US. She is the mother of Texas teenager Ethan Couch who fled to Mexico with his mother to avoid probation11 for killing12 four people in a drunk driving accident two years ago. Ethan Couch remains13 in Mexico where a legal injunction file to delay his extradition14 is still being processed. The two were located in Puerto Vallarta Mexico after almost two weeks' search. Couch's case became well-known after his lawyer had agreed Couch had been raised spoiled and rich, unable to know right from wrong. A defense called affluenza.
The flood water in Missouri have reached historic levels. Saint Louise public radio's Jason Rosamond  in B reports at least 14 people have died. Speaking with local officials outside of Saint Louise, Missouri governor Jay Nixon says most of the deaths occurred when people try to drive in flood water. He noted15 that he flood waters are so strong. They were able to knock a train off the rails in northwest Missouri. So I think a car can be floated over. I just watched that train be taken off the tracks and literally16 knocked over. Franklin County presiding commissioner17 John Griesheimer says he has never seen flooding in his county this bad, even during the great flood of 1993. 'We're just hoping that people you know be vigilant18 and try to pull their lives back together.' Nixon has activated19 the national guard to assist emergency response effort throughout the state.' For NPR news, I'm Jason Rosamond in St Louise.
24-year-old former neighbor of San Bernardino California gunman  Syed Farook has been indicted20 on federal charges of conspiring21 to supply material support to terrorists. Authorities say Enrique Marquez provided assault rifles to Farook and his wide which were used to kill 14 people in San Bernardino. Marquez is also charged with supporting an attack that was not carried out and with entering into a sham22 marriage with the member of Farook's extended family. 
On Wall Street, the Dow closed down 117 points. The NASDAQ was off 42 points. This is NPR.
Scrambling23 to gain ground in the early presidential contest in Iowa and New Hampshire, Republican Jeb Bush's campaign says it's shifting millions of dollars in planned ad purchases to the ground game deploying24 more campaign staffers in coming weeks. In an interview that airs on NPR's Mooring25 Addition tomorrow, Bush says he's in the race to stay. I don't think I cannot win any of them because we organize in every state. Bush has been struggling in polls behind Donald Trump26, Ted9 Cruise and Marco Rubio. 
The US Attorney's Office will not prosecute27 two veteran's affairs executives accused of corruption28. NPR's Quil Lawrence has more. The VA's own inspected general first to attention to allegations that two senior executives had built the VA out of about 400,000 dollars in relocation fees when they change jobs. Critics in congress called that another example of VA corruption. But VA deputy secretary Sloan Gibson told a recent house hearing the charges were never supported by evidence. 'Investigations29 get launched and media gets contact in their stories and at that point the individual becomes guilty until proved innocent.' Now the US Attorney general agrees and will not proceed criminal charges against the two VA executives. VA says the two should be demoted for errors in judgement not criminally charged.
