'Jena 6' case wraps with plea deal

The so-called "Jena Six" case set off a controversy and media frenzy in the small Louisiana town of Jena.
Via CNN: Five of the six black high school students charged with attempted murder in 2006 for allegedly beating a white classmate pleaded no contest in a Louisiana court Friday.
The men agreed to plea deals that settled lawsuits filed against them by Justin Barker and his family the year after the December 4, 2006, incident in the town of Jena.
