Rep. McMillin Receives Award For Sentencing Efforts

first_img“Being a recipient of this award is truly an honor. I look forward to continuing our state’s work to strengthen our justice system and protect Hoosiers.”INDIANAPOLIS – State Representative Jud McMillin (R-Brookville) was awarded a Champion of Justice award by the Indiana Judges Association (IJA).The award recognizes his work in the Indiana General Assembly during the 2014 legislative session on a variety of criminal justice and judiciary related matters. The award was presented to Rep. McMillin, Chairman of the Courts and Criminal Code Committee and a member of the Judiciary Committee, at the IJA’s annual seminar in French Lick.According to the IJA, Rep. McMillin approached each issue with fairness, allowing members of the committee, experts and Hoosiers the opportunity to voice their opinion on each issue. These qualities, along with the legislation he authored during session, earned him the Champion of Justice Award. The award was created in 2013 and is intended to recognize legislators for dedication to the cause of justice for our fellow citizens.“Rep. McMillin was instrumental in ensuring that the sentencing reform bill preserved judicial discretion in sentencing, which allows for judges to sentence based on the facts of the crime involved. He took a very reasoned and pragmatic approach to both the proposed changes to the bail system and the Marion County Small Claims courts by recognizing that studies that were already underway in these areas should be allowed to proceed before making changes to either system,” said Judge John Pera, President of the IJA. “The IJA is very appreciative of his willingness to discuss these issues with us and to approach each decision in an open, deliberative and forthright manner.”The IJA is a voluntary association of judges and magistrates who work together in an effort to make the administration of justice easier to access and the records more readily available to the public.“I am humbled to receive the Champion of Justice Award,” said Rep. McMillin. “As a lawyer, I have a unique appreciation for the work that the IJA contributes to our state. Being a recipient of this award is truly an honor. I look forward to continuing our state’s work to strengthen our justice system and protect Hoosiers.”last_img read more

Football News Cristiano Ronaldo will not face rape charges in US

first_imgLos Angeles: Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo will not face any charges over an alleged rape in Las Vegas a decade ago after US prosecutors said Monday they did not have enough evidence to proceed. A district attorney in the state of Nevada said it would not prosecute the Portuguese soccer player because it “cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt” that a sexual assault occurred. Kathryn Mayorga, a former model, alleges that Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.The former Manchester United and Real Madrid forward reached a financial settlement with her one year after the incident. He has always denied allegations of sexual assault, insisting their encounter was consensual.The Clark County District Attorney’s Office said it had received a report from Mayorga — who it identified only as “V” — on June 13, 2009, reporting that she had been the victim of a sexual assault. Police could not conduct “any meaningful investigation” at the time because she declined to say who assaulted her or where it occurred, the office said in a statement.As a result, detectives were “unable to search for and impound vital forensic evidence,” and video showing Ronaldo and Mayorga together was lost, it added. Mayorga contacted police in August of last year to ask that the case be reopened, at which point she named Ronaldo as the alleged assailant.The case was reopened “in spite of the passage of over nine year,” prosecutors said. “Based upon a review of the information presented at this time, the allegations of sexual assault against Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” prosecutors said. “Therefore, no charges will be forthcoming.”#MeToo movementMayorga’s attorney has stated that she agreed to an out-of-court settlement to keep her name from going public, but was later inspired to speak out by the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.Mayorga has also said that her emotional trauma at the time did not allow her to participate in the mediation process for the financial settlement.Neither Ronaldo’s nor Mayorga’s lawyers responded to AFP’s request for comment on the decision to end the investigation.The player has yet to respond on social media.In October last year, Ronaldo said he was “an exemplary person.” “I know who I am and what I did. The truth will come out,” he told France Football magazine. “And the people who criticize me and who expose my life today, who make a song and dance about it, these people will see.” The allegations have taken a toll on his life, and in particular on his family, he said.In January, a Spanish court handed Ronaldo a suspended two-year prison sentence for committing tax fraud while he was at Real Madrid. This was immediately reduced to a fine of 365,000 euros ($410,000), on top of another penalty of 3.2 million euros ($3.6 million).Ronaldo is widely considered one of the greatest footballers in the history of the game, having won the Champions League title five times — once with Manchester United and four times with Real Madrid. He also led Portugal to the Euro 2016 title in France.Ronaldo, who is based in Turin, is currently on Juventus’ pre-season tour of Asia.   For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Women’s World Cup 2019: Late penalty sends Netherlands past Japan

first_imgThe Netherlands booked a place in the quarterfinals of the Women’s World Cup thanks to a harsh late penalty converted by Lieke Martens that earned a 2-1 victory over Japan.Japan knocked the Dutch out at this stage four years ago en route to a final defeat against the United States, but Martens struck twice in Rennes on Tuesday to earn revenge. L I E K E #NEDJPN— OranjeLeeuwinnen (@oranjevrouwen) June 25, 2019The Netherlands almost opened the scoring in the fifth minute, Aya Sameshima making an excellent block to deny Miedema, but the European champions soon took the lead.Sherida Spitse drilled in a low corner from the left wing and Martens flicked a superb backheeled finish through the legs of Yuika Sugasawa to beat goalkeeper Ayaka Yamashita.Japan almost hit back immediately, though, as Sugasawa did brilliantly to get into the Netherlands box but hit the outside of the post with her low shot.They did equalize before the break, Mana Iwabuchi slipping a clever throughball into the path of Hasegawa, who beat the offside trap before finishing well. Emi Nakajima tested Sari Van Veenendaal with a dipping long-range strike after the interval, Hasegawa then drilling narrowly wide as Japan continued to press.Hina Sugita hit the crossbar with a rocket of a drive in the closing stages before Van Veenendaal made a great save to deny substitute Yuka Momiki and seemingly take the game to extra time.But referee Melissa Borjas pointed to the spot to harshly punish Kumagai, with Martens making no mistake from the spot to set up a clash with Italy.KWARTFINALE! #NEDJPN— OranjeLeeuwinnen (@oranjevrouwen) June 25, 2019 The Netherlands led through Martens’ stunning goal in the 17th minute but Japan hit back through Yui Hasegawa and created a string of fine chances in the second half.It was Martens who scored the decisive goal in the last minute, though, converting a penalty given for a handball against Saki Kumagai, who blocked an on-target effort from Vivianne Miedema.

Kennedy Brooks’ Title IX accuser details alleged mental, physical abuse from Oklahoma back

first_imgA University of Oklahoma student publicly accused Oklahoma running back Kennedy Brooks of mental and physical abuse on Friday. This comes after Brooks was cleared in a Title IX investigation on July 10 after being suspended from summer activities with the team.The student, Mallory Jech, detailed the alleged abuse in a 16-tweet thread (now since locked), claiming she and Brooks dated from June 2018 to March 2019, living together at one point during their relationship. She said Brooks not only cheated on and manipulated her, but also abused her mentally and physically abused her, scaring her anytime they argued. She did not file complaints with police. Jech also claimed to have pictures of bruises on her phone through text messages between the two, one accompanied by a message from Brooks that allegedly read, “I should not have to put my hands on you to move.”“I’m being played as the girl who lied about being abused,” Jech tweeted in the thread. “However, I’m the girl who protected a liar & an abuser’s career. Until now.”Jech claimed she phoned Oklahoma’s Title IX office “a few months” before May 2019 to first detail her concerns because “pieces of abuse had been reported,” but did not report any incidents for fear of harming Brooks’ career — and any potential retaliation. It wasn’t until an incident in which Brooks let himself into her apartment — when they were no longer dating — that she went directly the TItle IX office. Once there, she said, the office only moved three of his fall classes so they would not align with Jech’s schedule.”The University of Oklahoma does not value their students. OU only cares about their money,” Jech tweeted. “And God forbid something happen to one of their athletes who bring in millions of dollars every Saturday.”Jech’s full 16-tweet thread is below:I dated Kennedy Brooks from June of 2018 until the end of March 2019–during that time I was used, cheated on, manipulated and abused both mentally AND physically. If I were doing this because I am angry I was cheated on, I would have done it back in June of 2018…… the first time he cheated, or I would have done it when I found out he slept with a high schooler. But here I am, months after the fact, finally telling my story because the last thing that needs to happen is for little boys to look up to him and view him as a role model.I went to Title IX in May, right before the end of finals, and finally told my entire story to someone. I had called a few months before because pieces of the abuse had been reported—Kennedy was angry and I was terrified of what would happen when he came home (we lived together).On the phone with Title IX, I explained to them nothing happened and that I did not want him to get in trouble. I protected the person who put fear in my eyes every time we argued—for the sake of his career? Yes. But most importantly, I thought I was protecting myself from him.Months later, in May, I was finally ready. We had not been together for over a month at this point. Kennedy showed up to my apartment one evening after I had repeatedly told him not to come, I was not home—He told me he would let himself in my apartment. I sped home.I was on the phone with my mom when he came around the corner of my apartment building. He was obviously angry, yelling and screaming, and was demanding he get the little bit of his things—when I told him they were in my car and that I was about to take them to his apartment…… I watched him let himself into my apartment with a key that I was under the impression I already had. He had a duplicate. I called Title IX the next morning and asked if I could go in and talk to them. And from there, I was under the impression that someone would help me.I felt guilty for opening my mouth. I felt guilty for telling someone all of the times he put his hands on me. I felt guilty for telling someone who Kennedy Brooks really is. I felt guilty for finally telling my story. I felt guilty for doing the right thing. I was still attachedNow, months after that first Title IX visit, they have decided to not punish Kennedy Brooks. Regardless of the messages I have where he told me to call Title IX, that he doesn’t care what happens.Regardless of my best friend who still lived with me during some of the abuse, who also talked to Title IX and told them what she witnessed. Regardless of the pictures of bruises and text messages between us where he says “I should not have to put my hands on you to move”.Title IX does nothing for the victim. They make you believe they are doing their best to help you—their “best” is changing his Fall schedule so I don’t have to sit in 3 classes with the person who has permanently affected the way I continue to live my life.Thats (sic) the best they could do. Kennedy Brooks is being protected by the University of Oklahoma (@uofoklahoma) because he plays football. I was physically abused by that “man”, I was left on the side of the rode (sic) in both Norman and Texas by that “man” but who cares about the victim.The University of Oklahoma does not value their students. OU only cares about their money. And God forbid something happen to one of their athletes who bring in millions of dollars every Saturday.I grew up with Crimson and Cream instilled in my blood. It was never a question where I would go to college, but the University and football program that I grew up loving, has done nothing but disappoint me and devalue my importance.I will not let the University of Oklahoma silence me. I will not let Kennedy Brooks silence me. I’m not doing this for attention or for anyone to feel sorry for me. I’m doing this for every girl who is too scared to speak up against their abuser. I will tell anyone my story.last_img read more
