Ffriend guilty again, will appeal

first_imgJamaican basketball player Kimani Ffriend was once again found guilty of vehicular manslaughter in a Serbian Court yesterday. Ffriend, now 36, was being retried on the charge of being responsible for the death of Nevena Dragutinovic, a 30-year-old account executive, on November 3, 2012. He was first found guilty of the charge in September 2014 for the woman’s death and sentenced to serve three years in prison. However, an appeals court ordered a retrial, citing several mistakes made by the presiding judge. Ffriend, who has five months left on his sentence, will once again appeal the verdict, and this time, the appellate court’s decision will be the final verdict in the case. He will remain free until the appellate court makes its decision. FINAL APPEAL A date for the final appeal will be determined once the judge submits a written verdict explaining her latest decision, including why she chose to ignore the court-appointed expert’s testimony that, having reconstructed the scene of the incident, that the Jamaican’s explanation was plausible and that it was possible that he was not guilty. The judge had based her initial guilty verdict on the expert witness’ testimony, but this time chose to ignore it. “It’s just sad, man. It feels like somebody just took the air out of me,” said Ffriend in reaction to the verdict. However, he remains hopeful, as his lawyers have said that they now have a stronger case to take to the appeals court. During the first appeal, the court ruled that there were six mistakes that needed to be addressed during the retrial, and even suggested that the scene of the incident be reconstructed. During the retrial, the scene of the incident was reconstructed, during which Ffriend testified about what occurred on that fateful night three years ago. The court-appointed expert testified on his new findings, which corroborated with the Jamaican’s testimony, but the judge chose to ignore the new information he provided to the court. She claimed that she would not accept the verdict of the expert, as he had changed portions of his testimony from the first trial and that she was not obligated to accept his findings. In her opinion, Ffriend was guilty. – Leighton Levylast_img read more

CANU appeals Magistrate’s decision to dismiss drug charge

The first charge had alleged that on February 12, 2018, at Alberttown, Georgetown, he had had in his possession two grams of ecstasy. The second charge had alleged that he had sold ecstasy to an underage boy.On August 8, 2019, Senior Magistrate Daly dismissed the possession of ecstasy charge against John, citing insufficient evidence having been presented to the court after she had read submissions made by both John’s attorney, George Thomas, and the CANU prosecutor.She had also noted that ecstasy does not fall under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Control) Act.John’s attorney had contended that ecstasy is made up of methylenedioxymethamphetamine, and not an amphetamine which is illegal under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act of Guyana.According to reports, the child was found in possession of the drug, and upon investigation, a search was conducted at John’s home, where the ecstasy was found in his bedroom.last_img read more

Berahino tweet will not impress WBA after Tottenham third and fourth bids

first_imgWest Brom have rejected a third and fourth bid from Tottenham for Saido Berahino, who angrily tweeted he will NEVER play for the club.The Baggies instantly dismissed the approaches and remain determined to keep the England Under-21 striker at The Hawthorns.Berahino had a transfer request rejected last month with Albion angered by Tottenham’s continued pursuit of the 22-year-old. And now it looks like he has had enough of the whole situation.https://twitter.com/SBerahino/status/638744042772299776//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsBaggies’ chairman Jeremy Peace said previously: “As I have made clear from the moment Tottenham lodged their first bid for Saido on August 18, selling our top goalscorer was never on our agenda this summer.”In addition, Peace appears to be unimpressed by his opposite number Daniel Levy’s attempts to sign the player.“Not only have the offers been too low as a valuation of the player, but they have been based on stage-payments and add-ons over a long period which do nothing to reflect Saido’s ability and potential,” he added, when ruling out a sale in August. 1 Saido Berahino last_img read more

49ers net another victory

first_imgElementary school girls from the Huntington Beach United soccer club approached Mauricio Ingrassia on Sunday, asking for autographs. The second-year Long Beach State women’s soccer coach was happy to oblige, even remarking that someday the players, who faced another club at halftime, may well end up wearing a 49ers uniform. If the young ladies do indeed aspire to someday don the black and gold, the legacy they will have to live up to is getting stronger by the day. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 With the win, the 49ers moved to 10-3-1 to set a modern program mark for season wins, and with a 3-1 Big West record, also control their own destiny for a top-four league finish and conference tournament berth. The win also concludes a weekend in which the 49ers faced two teams that have dominated the conference standings in recent years, and scored two-goal wins over each after Friday’s 4-2 triumph against defending conference tournament champion Cal Poly. Sunday’s scoring came courtesy of two 49ers who were not at full strength in last Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Cal State Northridge. Bolt has a cast on her left wrist due to an injury suffered in the Big West-opening 1-0 win at Pacific 10 days ago, and was unable to play against the Matadors last Sunday. “I struggled with the wrist, especially (Friday),” said Bolt, who opened the scoring in the fourth minute Sunday. “But I’m going to get the cast off Tuesday, so then I won’t have to deal with it anymore.” Silos started last week but was hampered by the effects of an ingrown toenail on her left big toe, and was not able to call on her speed or take corner kicks left-footed. She went to the podiatrist last week, and had a goal in each of the weekend’s games and two assists Friday. “It was really infected for about a month,” said Silos, whose 86th-minute strike from 30 yards out iced the game. “It’s awesome now, I love it. It’s like playing on a new foot.” In front of a season-high crowd of 632 at George Allen Field, LBSU beat defending Big West Conference regular-season champion UC Santa Barbara, 3-1, behind two goals from freshman midfielder Hayley Bolt and another from freshman forward Kim Silos to pick up a program-record seventh home win of the season. “Everyone’s coming together, we know how each other plays,” said junior midfielder Erin Empting, who combined with Dana Farquhar on the game-winning assist. “It’s so amazing, I’m on Cloud Nine. It was a big weekend, big wins.” center_img The 49ers now have eight days off before hosting former and future conference foes at George Allen Field. In its first year out of the Big West, Idaho comes to town Oct. 18, and as it prepares to join the conference next year, UC Davis will be the opponent Oct. 21. “I didn’t really have any set expectations, just the goal to be in the top four (in conference),” Ingrassia said. “Things have come together real nicely, so I’m just real happy to be where we’re at right now.” WOMEN’S TENNIS Junior Rachael Porsz won two titles at the 2005 Cal State Fullerton Fall Intercollegiates. Porsz captured the back draw singles and doubles titles, teaming with Jessica Weeks in doubles. The 49ers also came away with the doubles title in the main draw, as No. 1-seeded Katy Williams-Sandra Rocha captured the crown. Porsz won her singles semifinal, 8-5, over UC Irvine’s Clare Fermin. She then captured the title by default over UCI’s Ali Borowicz. Porsz and Weeks defeated fellow 49ers Emmanuelle Tabatruong and Krystina Katayama, 8-6, in the doubles semifinals, and then stopped Juliette Mutkze and Amy Vyhnis of UC Santa Barbara, 8-1, for the title. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jones slams Clucas but believes Stoke are no longer ‘bad eggs’

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesStoke boss Nathan Jones praised his side for securing a point at QPR with 10 men but accused Sam Clucas of ruining their gameplan by being sent off.Clucas ludicrously got himself dismissed after just eight minutes ​of the 0-0 draw ​for stamping on Josh Scowen in full view of referee Gavin Ward.Scowen followed through with an innocuous sliding challenge just as Ward, who was standing just a few yards away, blew for a free-kick after Clucas had handled the ball near the edge of the ​Rangers ​penalty area.Clucas inexplicably reacted and was immediately shown the red card.But Rangers were unable to take advantage – and themselves ended the match with 10 men after Grant Hall was sent off after picking up a second yellow card late on.Jones made no excuses for Clucas, whose actions meant the visitors spent almost the entire game on the back foot.“It did scupper plans that we felt were well laid,” said Jones.“I’m bitterly disappointed. It’s a lack of discipline that cost us really, because we’d have liked to come here and get three points.”But Jones was encouraged by the battling qualities shown by players whose attitude was questioned prior to the Welshman taking over in January.“You have to adapt and we showed that we are adaptable,” he said.“It was a performance full of character, work-rate and discipline.“Let’s be honest, that’s not been synonymous with this group in the past. There have been articles written about the group being bad eggs and this, that and the other.“They’re laying that to rest. I’m proud of them today. I’m proud of the work​-​rate and the structure we showed.“That’s how successful teams are made – on that backbone. We had a strong backbone today.“We were never really under any real pressure and we showed a fantastic fighting spirit and desire to get a point.“We’re looking solid and are not conceding goals. We’re moving in the right direction.“We have a platform and a base that means we are gaining a bit of momentum.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?
