Do area colleges comply with a crime log access law?

Good Thursday evening, everyone.

Here's what's ahead for you tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10:

Nick Lough spearheads this week's WAFF 48 Investigates report. The "Clery Act" mandates that every school that receives federal student aid money must produce an annual crime report. Nick went to see how easily he could obtain a copy of area colleges' crime logs, which are to be made publicly accessible by law. See what he uncovered tonight.

A Decatur family is still mourning the loss of two young lives following a Thursday morning apartment fire, which investigators believe started in the children's bedroom. Diana Crawford will have the latest on the investigation.

Monday marks the deadline for enrollment in the Affordable Care Act. News that those who have at least started the process online qualify for an extension has led to an influx of folks seeking help to get the job done. Sarah Navoy will have more with a youth group offering that help.

Join Charles Molineaux for a wrap-up of all the day's news tonight – on air, online and on mobile.
