Mother Pleads “Not Guilty” to Drowning Autistic Son in Canal

first_imgLawyers for Miami mother Patricia Ripley on Friday submitted a “not guilty” plea to charges that she pushed her 9-year-old son with autism into a canal to drown.At a virtual arraignment, prosecutors filed a “notice of intent” to seek an indictment of first-degree murder, since they are still waiting for a grand jury to reconvene due to the pandemic.Under Florida law, only a person who is indicted by a grand jury can receive the death penalty.Prosecutors have revealed that Ripley is facing charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, aggravated child abuse and filing a false police report.They have surveillance video which apparently shows Ripley pushing her son Alejandro into a Kendall canal last month, although witnesses rescued him.JUST IN: Patricia Ripley, the Miami mother accused of pushing her 9-year-old autistic son into a canal to drown, has pleaded not guilty. https://t.co/reWELww05Q— Miami Herald (@MiamiHerald) June 12, 2020 Ripley then drove the child to another canal at a Kendall Lakes golf course, where he ultimately drowned.His body was discovered the next day, just hours after she claimed to have been ambushed by two black men.  The mother told police that the men demanded drugs and took her cellphone, tablet and son, before fleeing, prompting an Amber Alert.According to the arrest affidavit, she told police, “He’s going to be in a better place.”Ripley, who remains in jail without bond, did not appear in Friday’s virtual arraignment.last_img read more

Woman removed from job after purposely coughing in baby’s face

first_imgA woman who was caught on camera purposely coughing in a 1-year-old’s face because she believed his mother was not practicing social distancing rules has been removed from her job.The incident occurred at a Yogurtland store in San Jose, California on June 12th.According to the report, the mother of the child says the woman became argumentative with her because she believed she was not keeping proper social distancing while in the store.At one point during the argument, the woman moved close to the 1- year-old boy’s face while he sat in his stroller, removed her mask, and then coughed 2-3 times before leaving the store.The mother who is Hispanic also said that she believes the incident may have been racially motivated because the woman kept asking if she spoke English and whether or not she understood her.“She said, ‘So you don’t understand, and do you even understand what I’m saying?’ Like I’m not even speaking English,” said the child’s mother, Mireya Mora.Authorities reported that they were finally able to identify and locate the woman after publicly releasing the video, however, they have not released her name because they ” can’t release the names of suspects until there is a warrant for their arrest, they were booked into jail, or they were issued a criminal citation,” said San Jose police Sgt. Enrique Garcia last month.While the woman’s name was not publicly released, it was stated that she worked for the Oak Grove School District and that they were aware of the situation.  The district has since released a statement saying that due to the woman’s actions, she no longer works for them:“The Oak Grove School District’s highest priority is the safety of our students and the well-being of all of the children in the community we serve. We do not tolerate conduct from any employee that compromises any child’s safety.”It is unclear if the woman was fired from her job or if she left on her own accord.last_img read more

Major championship date for Georgia Hall

first_img England’s Georgia Hall will join the world’s top women players when she tees up in the first major of the season, the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in California, from April 1-7. She’s one of nine leading amateurs to receive an invitation to play in the championship and she commented: “It’s a great honour and I can’t wait – I’m over the moon.” Georgia, 16, is the European women’s number one amateur and is ranked fourth in the world. This will be her first professional tournament and the first time she plays in the USA. “It’s the biggest major in the world – what a way to start!” said Georgia, from Remedy Oak in Dorset. “My first aim is to make the cut and also to see how other people play and what I can learn from them. I want to see if I’m doing anything wrong – or right. “I didn’t expect the invitation and it’s just amazing. I’ve always wanted to go to America to play.” Georgia, an England international, is the British girls’ champion and has just started her 2013 campaign by winning two gold medals at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival. Among the other amateurs who have received invitations are world number one Lydia Ko of New Zealand, who has just won her third professional title, and British champion and Curtis Cup player Stephanie Meadow of Ireland.

England just miss out on senior title

first_img1 Oct 2013 England just miss out on senior title England came oh-so-close to regaining the Women’s Senior Home Internationals title at Llandudno (Maesdu) Golf Club, Wales  – but lost out to defending champions, Ireland, on countback. The two teams tied 4-4 after England’s Cath Rawthore won her match with a superb 18th hole birdie. But Ireland had won 18 individual games to England’s 16½ and they add this success to the European title which they won in Slovenia a few weeks ago. Ireland edged ahead in the foursomes in the title showdown, winning two of the three morning matches. They followed up with two big singles wins to secure the title. But English senior stroke play champion Sue Dye won a hard fought game and Cath Rawthore and Katherine Russell – both playing their first season of international senior golf – ensured the day’s result was halved. England captain Pat West said: “The whole team did really well and it’s good to think that we weren’t beaten this week. Ireland retained the title on countback, which is a much better scenario for us than being beaten.” Wales beat Scotland 6-2 to finish third in the table. For Scotland it was the Wooden Spoon.

Both teams have won their first two matches of the series and the outcome of their head-to-head will decide the title. Today, England beat Scotland 6½–1½ with every team member unbeaten and contributing to the scoreline.  “They all played fantastically well,” said team captain Pat West. “Now, it’s all to play for tomorrow. We need to win, a half won’t be good enough, and the whole team is up for it.” In the day’s other match Ireland, the defending champions, beat Wales 6-2.

FINAL MATCHES THURSDAY Three foursomes and five singles each match 8.30 and 1.10: Scotland v Wales 9.00 and 1.50: England v Ireland   01 October 2013 Great start for England’s senior women England produced a strong finish to secure a convincing 6-2 win over the hosts, Wales, on a windy opening day of the Senior Women’s Home Internationals at Llandudno Maesdu. The team were 2-1 ahead after the morning foursomes and, after good singles wins by Amanda Mayne and Caroline Berry, they had four points in the bag and could not be beaten. But, the winning point looked elusive for a time when both Chris Quinn and Sue Dye were one down after 16 holes. However, they both finished in style, each winning the last two holes, with a par and a birdie apiece,  to emerge as one-up victors. England captain Pat West commented: “It sounds very comfortable but it was so close with both Chris and Sue standing one down on the 17th tee. They were both brilliant, winning the 17th and 18th in an incredible finish. “It was extremely windy today and playing conditions were really difficult so the whole team did very well indeed.” In the day’s other match Ireland began the defence of their title with an 8-0 whitewash over Scotland.

English Women’s Amateur Championship: Price powers her way to victory

first_img Tags: Emily Price, Lily May Humphreys 1 Aug 2020 English Women’s Amateur Championship: Price powers her way to victory Emily Price today celebrated the biggest win of her career after coming from behind to defeat Lily May Humphreys in a thrilling English Women’s Amateur Championship final.Price claimed a 4&3 victory over the England women’s international in the 36-hole final on the Hotchkin Course at Woodhall Spa Golf Club in Lincolnshire.However, the match score does not tell the full story of a game that ebbed and flowed and perhaps turned with one putt on the 18th hole of the morning round.After being two down to the 18-year-old Humphreys for most of the back nine, Price clawed a hole back on the 16th before finding trouble off the tee at the par five, 18th hole.However, a smart bunker shot followed by a brilliant wedge and a 15-foot birdie putt saw her head into lunch all square and with a spring in her step.A par, birdie start to the afternoon round edged Price into a lead that she never surrendered and victory was sealed on the 33rd hole.View the full tournament scores onlineFor Humphreys, there was deep disappointment a year after losing to Ellen Hume in the 2019 final.However, the Essex golfer can be proud of her efforts this week which continue to point to a bright future in the game.The glory, though, belonged to Price who cradled the trophy – first played for in 1914 – as she described the best win of her career and the moment when the pendulum swung in her favour.When asked if the birdie on 18 in the morning was significant, Price admitted: “Yes – 100%.“To come in not one down and to hole a decent length birdie gave me momentum and positive energy.“This morning Lily came out and was playing unbelievable – I was two down and scraped it back on 18 to get all square. Then I started hot this afternoon and kept the momentum going.“The aim was fairways, greens and two putts for pars. I finished three under which was ok.”Price has won an England Golf event before. As a 16-year-old, she underlined her star potential with victory in the English Women’s Stroke Play.Now the sky’s the limit for Price as she prepares to return to Kent State University in America for the final two years of her degree course.After being introduced as the 2020 English Women’s Amateur champion, she said with a smile: “It sounds amazing and feels even better.“To come and take the win after a very long week is unbelievable and to perform the way I have is the best feeling you can ever get as a player.“It’s been a few years since I won – a distant memory but feels good to be holding this and having won an event of this calibre now I’m 20 years old.“It will really help boost me and get me going for the rest of the season.”At the start of the week sixty-six of the top women amateurs in the country teed it up for two rounds of stroke play before the top 16 made it through to the knockout stages.In a safe and secure environment and with the men’s amateur championship running alongside the women’s for the first time in history, players were able to concentrate on their golf.Price spoke on behalf of the golfers when she said: “It’s been great to get back out there – all of us haven’t played in so long.“The event has been set up great by England Golf and Woodhall Spa Golf Club and the players have appreciated it– as well as managing boys and girls at the same event.“It’s been great to have the boys here too and see so many competing.”Catch up on all the videos from the 2020 English Amateur Championships herePhotograph credit: Leaderboardlast_img read more

Dolphins’ Martin Ends Silence, Meets NFL Counsel

first_imgMiami Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin speaks to members of the media outside the office of the NFL lawyer investigating the team’s bullying scandal, Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, in New York. (AP Photo/John Minchillo)by Rick FreemanAP Sports WriterNEW YORK (AP) – Jonathan Martin spent nearly seven hours going into “great detail” with the NFL counsel investigating his claims of his harassment in the Miami Dolphins’ locker room. What came up in their talks, he isn’t saying for now.He would say this: He still wants to play in the NFL.Martin – in town because the league is trying to gather information about the bullying he says he was subjected to by teammate Richie Incognito – arrived at the Manhattan office building of special investigator Ted Wells on Friday morning, and didn’t emerge until shortly after sunset. Mobbed by media, he stood in the camera lights and read a statement.“Although I went into great detail with Mr. Ted Wells and his team, I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time,” Martin said. “This is the right way to handle the situation.“Beyond that, I look forward to working through the process and resuming my career in the National Football League.”After that, he and attorney David Cornwell went back into the building, later leaving via a side exit.The crowd outside the building drew attention from office workers and tourists all day. Some even stopped to watch and wait, and most seemed familiar with Martin’s story.Even Miami-based hop-hop artist Rick Ross came by. His record label is located in the building across the street.Incognito has acknowledged leaving a voicemail for Martin in April in which he used a racial slur, threatened to kill his teammate and threatened to slap Martin’s mother. Incognito has said he regrets the racist and profane language, but said it stemmed from a culture of locker-room “brotherhood,” not bullying.Incognito is white and Martin is biracial. Teammates, both black and white, have said Incognito is not a racist, and they’ve been more supportive of the veteran guard than they have of Martin.Incognito has been suspended by the Dolphins. He filed a grievance Thursday against the team over his suspension, and has said his conduct was part of the normal locker-room environment.Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also plans to meet with Martin, who said Friday that he will indeed get together with the Dolphins’ front office. On Monday, Ross said two committees would examine the locker-room culture. Players have been virtually unanimous in saying it doesn’t need to be changed.At Dolphins practice Friday, long snapper John Denney, the team’s players’ union representative, was asked about problems.“I can’t say I saw it firsthand because I’m not an offensive lineman, and I’m not in their offensive line room. I can tell you from my perspective, and having been in this locker room, I never saw it coming,” he said. “I can say that. It was a surprise to me. There did not seem to be an increase in behavioral problems. It’s been the same here my entire career.”Coach Joe Philbin also talked to reporters but kept his focus on football.“I believe in the guys we have in the locker room,” he said. “I believed in them before this all took place, before all this scrutiny came upon us.“And I believe in them today.”While Martin was in New York, and long before he spoke, Incognito’s grievance was a talking point in the locker room some 1,300 miles away.“He’s got to do what he’s got to do. I’m never going to tell somebody how to run their life,” wide receiver Mike Wallace said. “You got to get your money, man. I don’t really have too much to say about it.”Martin alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito, and the case has raised questions about job security for Philbin, his assistants and general manager Jeff Ireland.Philbin won a vote of confidence this week from Ross, but that could change depending on the findings of Wells, who was brought into the situation last week. Wells is expected in Miami next week to talk with Dolphins players, coaches and staff.Wells will determine the role of Philbin, his staff and Miami management in the case, and his report will be made public. One issue is whether anyone on the coaching staff ordered Incognito to “toughen up” Martin, a second-year tackle from Stanford who became a starter as a rookie but played poorly at times.Martin left the team two weeks ago and has been with family in California undergoing counseling for emotional issues.Center Mike Pouncey missed practice Friday because of an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at San Diego, raising the possibility the Dolphins will be without a third starting offensive lineman.The case inspired a national debate about workplace bullying and attracted a daily throng of 100 media members or more at the Dolphins complex. In Manhattan, both CNN and Fox News Channel were on hand outside the meeting.The Dolphins (4-5) have slumped after a 3-0 start, and on Sunday they play at home for the first time since the scandal broke.“All we have to do,” defensive end Cameron Wake said, “is concentrate on playing the game on Sunday.”last_img read more
