Danielle Bregoli, a 14-year-old from Boynton Beach who appeared on daytime talk show "Dr. Phil" last year, plead guilty June 28 to charges of grand theft, grand theft auto, possession of marijuana and filing a false report. She was sentenced in Palm Beach County Court in Delray Beach.
Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and one of his senior advisers, has come under FBI scrutiny in the Russia investigation, multiple U.S. officials told NBC News.
Investigators believe Kushner has significant information relevant to their inquiry, officials said. That does not mean they suspect him of a crime or intend to charge him.
The FBI's scrutiny of Kushner places the bureau's sprawling counterintelligence and criminal investigation not only on the doorstep of the White House, but on the cusp of the Trump family circle. The Washington Post first reported last week that a senior White House official close to Trump was a "person of interest," but did not name the person. The term "person of interest" has no legal meaning.
The officials said Kushner is in a different category from former Trump aides Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn, who are formally considered subjects of the investigation. Records of both Manafort and Flynn have been demanded by grand jury subpoenas, NBC News has reported.
RIt is not known whether Kushner has received any records requests from federal investigators.
Also unclear is what precisely about Kushner's activities has drawn the FBI's interest as it investigates whether Trump associates coordinated with the Russian campaign to interfere in the election. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is now leading the probe as a special counsel.
Kushner met at least once in December with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, and he also met last year with a Russian banker, Sergey Gorkov.
"Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings," Kushner's lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, told NBC News. "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.

A 60-year-old Ohio mob enforcer-turned-pastor married his teenage bride and got her pregnant, all with the blessing of the other lady in his life — his 44-year-old wife.
“The whole situation works for all three of us,” Thom Miller told Barcroft Media. “I am the only one who is allowed to have more than one partner — and both of my wives understand and appreciate that.”
Miller is now building a bigger home so he can split his time between his two ladies, whom he calls sister wives.
And he believes their polygamous lifestyle is strengthening family ties.
“It means they always have a friend with them.”
Miller met his 19-year-old gal pal, Reba Kerfootruba, seven years after he married his wife, Belinda.
“I wanted to have more of a family — having another lady in the house not only makes our family whole but individually it’s a beautiful thing because it’s like having a sister around,” Belinda said. “Thom is the love of my life and Reba is the blessing of my life, so it all works.”
Reba said her arrangement with a married couple initially troubled her family and friends, but now they support her.
“They’re happy as long as they know I am happy,” she said.
She admitted that she doesn’t love sharing her man with another woman.
“But I try not to get jealous and when it’s not my time with Thom, I just try to occupy myself by going out with friends,” Reba told Barcroft. “The baby will have two moms, which I’m okay with.”
And while Miller’s ladies are both on board with their love triangle, his church in Mansfield, Ohio, isn’t.
“I don’t preach about polygamy, but I feel it’s a very Christian lifestyle,” he said. “This is America and my wives and I have a right to live any way we please, providing we’re not hurting anybody.”
Miller turned to Christianity after he spent seven years in jail for stabbing someone during a bar fight following years as a member of the mob, according to the news outlet.
“I knew I had to make a change,” he said. “I wanted to live a more Christian life.”
Now he has that — and just wants to settle down with his wives.
“We just want the opportunity to live together and have our marriages recognized,” he said.
Polygamy is illegal in all 50 states.

Racist commenters beware: Your words might show up in your own backyard.
A new campaign in Brazil is plastering billboards with racist Facebook comments. The point is not to expose anyone but to educate people that their words have a real impact.
The campaign, "Virtual racism, real consequences," is using the location tag from Facebook posts to find where the offenders live. The group is then buying billboard space in their neighborhoods, but blurring out the names and photos of the commenters.
The comment roughly translates to "I got home stinking of black people." "Preto" is an offensive way to say "black" in Portuguese, compared to "negro," which is neutral.
Behind the project is the Criola group, a nonprofit that works to defend the rights of black women in Brazil.
The campaign was prompted after Brazilian journalist Maria Júlia Coutinho was targeted by racist Facebook comments online. Coutinho, thefirst black weather forecaster on Brazilian prime-time television, corrected another anchor on air in July. When another news site praised her for getting the terminology correct, Facebook commenters responded with a torrent of comments against everything from her hair to her race.
The offensive comments range from telling her to "go f--- herself" to saying her nickname "Maju" made it clear she was from Africa.
The project is republishing those comments as a reminder that virtual bullying can have an impact in the real world.
"We omit names and faces of the authors because we have no intention of exposing anyone. We just want to educate people so that in future they think about the consequences before posting racist comments," the project says.

Shocking footage showing two young men speeding to their deaths has been released by their families.
Young dad Michael Owen’s last words were “you’re doing 90 boy, slow down” seconds before his unlicensed driver pal lost control and ploughed into a church wall, killing them both instantly.
The 21-year-old captured the terrifying ride where driver Kyle Careford, 20, sped through the countryside at up to 90mph in Michael’s red Renault Clio before they died.
Visibly straining as he holds it aloft, a Japanese fisherman grimaces as he proudly displays a terrifyingly large fish caught in the waters off Japan.
With a gaping mouth large enough to swallow a small child, this creature - believed to be a wolffish - would not look out of place in a science fiction film.
The massive catch was reeled in by Hirasaka Hiroshi, a fisherman who has made a career of landing and then eating unusual fish.
Caught off the coast of the island of Hokkaido, he said: 'It was worth flying to [Hokkaido] twice within three months. This guy is super cool,' theDaily Star reported.
Located just north of the mainland, Hirasaka said he landed the massive catch in the island's waters near Russia's coast.
Wolffish commonly live in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. As deep sea dwellers, they feed on smallers creatures along the ocean floor.
The creature has developed a reputation due to its size and fearsome appearance and one type of the species featured on the Animal Planet series River Monsters.
Normally growing to about 1.2m in length, the wolffish Hirasaka caught measured close to two metres, The Sun reported.
The catch may also add substance to Japanese fishermen's concerns over the effects the Fukushima nuclear accident is having on local fish populations.
A Florida woman was arrested Tuesday night after she tried to stab a deputy with a large sword or machete inside a mobile home filled with thousands of other bladed weapons, authorities said.
The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies went to Nickole Dykema’s Brooksville home to assist probation and parole officers who were trying to issue felony arrest warrants at around 10 p.m.
Dykema was seen looking at law enforcement officers through a broken window in her home, but refused to come out and disappeared back into the residence, according to a news release. Once other deputies arrived, officers forced their way into the home and were met by Dykema who had a large sword or machete in her hand, according to the release. She tried to stab one of the deputies and missed his face by inches.
The Tampa Tribune reports authorities surrounded Dykema after she was seen hiding behind a blanket. Officers say they fired a bean bag at her, but it had no effect.
The newspaper reports Dykema fled into a room filled with about 500 bladed weapons. Authorities noticed there were other rooms filled with similar weapons and another room that contained an altar covered in pentagrams, according to The Tampa Tribune.
Shocking moment desperate father throws himself, his wife and baby onto rail tracks in Hungary after realising their 'train to Austria' is actually taking them to a refugee camp
By John Hall for MailOnline
A desperate refugee family have been photographed being dragged off an Austria-bound train by Hungarian authorities who wanted to take them away to a migrant holding camp.
Having finally been allowed to leave Budapest on board trains bound for western Europe after a tense two day stand off with police, hundreds of refugees now face further frustration and delays after their train was halted in the nearby town of Bicske and all those on board ordered off.
Hungarian police officers wearing protective helmets and carrying truncheons demanded the refugees make their way to a migrant holding centre in the town - leading to clashes with those desperate to start a new life in western Europe.
In one particularly harrowing sequence of images a father overcome with emotion tries desperately to protect his wife and child from being taken away - lying down on the tracks in protest before officers dragged them away for their own safety.
The federal government on Tuesday ordered Citibank to pay $700 million to customers it said had been overcharged by the bank.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau also ordered the bank to pay $35 million in penalties associated to the overcharging and for the bank's use of "deceptive marketing" techniques.
The bureau said that 8.8 million customers will be compensated in the pay out, which includes 7 million people overcharged directly by Citibank and another 1.8 million customers of the bank's subsidiaries.
