BRIEFLY : MAN FACING PRISON TERM FOR BEING PIMP.

SANTA BARBARA - A 34-year-old man was convicted of being a pimp at a house of prostitution in eastern Goleta, closing the third recent major criminal case involving Santa Barbara-area brothels.

Toby Eugene Hines was convicted Thursday of two felony counts of pimping and faces a prison term ranging from three to seven years, officials said. Business partner John William Elliott, 26, pleaded no contest last week to the same charges and felony pandering.

Earlier this year, Patricia Marie Cota, 29, accused of running the ``College Cuties'' brothel, pleaded no contest to pimping and pandering.

In January, Brian Mangan, 46, was found guilty of felony pimping and operating a house of prostitution. He will be sentenced in July.

Fake handgun lands student in trouble

SANTA BARBARA - Police arrested a 14-year-old Santa Barbara High School freshman after other students reported seeing a gun in his desk.

The gun seized in Thursday's incident turned out to be a toy version of a chrome-plated 9 mm handgun. Police said bringing a reproduction to school is illegal.

``We've tried to get our kids to give up other kids and report this kind of thing,'' said Principal J.R. Richards. The boy, who was not identified, will be expelled, he said.
