PRISON FOR MEN WHO POSTED TEEN'S INFO TO SOLICIT SEX: Two San Jose men, including a former peer health counselor for Santa Clara County, have each been sentenced to about five years in prison for posting information about a minor to solicit prostitution customers.

Justin Everett Crutchfield, 28, was ordered Tuesday to spend 57 months in prison, while Demontae Terrell Toliver, 24, was sentenced to five years.

Both pleaded guilty in July to posting the minor's telephone number and sexually suggestive photographs of the teen on the now-shuttered in 2013. At the time of his arrest, Crutchfield was a peer health counselor with the Santa Clara County Department of Mental Health.

DUO NABBED AFTER COP FIRES SHOTS: Two burglary suspects were arrested by San Mateo police after a predawn encounter in which an officer opened fire.

Maria King, 31, and Saliq Calloway, 22, both of San Bruno were being held in San Mateo County Jail on a flurry of felonies, including burglary and conspiracy.

The incident began about 2:45 a.m. when a resident reported that a man with a flashlight was trying to break into his home on Greenoak Court.

Officers arrived and found King rummaging through a nearby car, police said. A K-9 officer ordered her to stop, but she fled into the driver's side of a second vehicle, started the car and aimed it at the officer and the dog, prompting the officer to open fire, authorities said.

King wasn't struck by gunfire and was blocked in by police cars and arrested.

Calloway, it was later learned, called for a taxi near the Crystal Springs Shopping Center, and police caught up to him several hours later and arrested him. But until that time, nearby residents were asked to shelter in place as police conducted a house-to-house search.
