Doctors indicated there was “no medical cause” for the ear injuries — and because of that, they were concerned this may be an abuse situation.

But the information was never acted upon - and the researcher has told MPs that the men have never been prosecuted for the alleged abuse, despite facing other charges on different criminal matters.

    Almost forgotten in the uproar over the brutal ‘‘whuppin’ ’’ that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson laid on his 4-year-old son is just how great a runner Peterson was. I say ‘‘was’’ because it’s not certain Peterson, 29, will play in the NFL again. He is out indefinitely, with pay, as he awaits trial on charges of reckless or negligent injury toward his son. The trial tentatively is set for Dec. 1, too late for him to return and play this season. If he is found guilty, he could receive a prison sentence of two years and a $10,000 fine....

    On ESPN’s “SportsCenter” earlier this week, espnW columnist Kate Fagan argued that the big picture in the controversy surrounding former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice’s domestic violence allegations. According Fagan, the problem needs to be tackled at the so-called grassroots level when men are in their formative years. “Well, I think right now we're talking so much about firing Goodell or punishments. You know, should it be a three game, a two game, a six game, a full year ban? But I think that's a little reactive and not proactive. Domestic violence is something that happens in anger, in...

    PHOENIX — A man who slept with a 20-year-old woman when he was 14 — and didn’t learn he was a father until eight years later — is now being forced to pay child support, the Arizona Republic reports. Olivas, who said he was confused and going through a rough patch at that time of his life time, said the two went their separate ways after the encounter. Arizona law says a child younger than 15 cannot consent to sexual relations with an adult under any circumstance. All of it was put behind him, he thought, until two years ago...

    CHICAGO (STMW) – A federal judge has shot down former First Baptist Church of Hammond Pastor Jack Schaap’s motion to cut his 12-year prison sentence.

Lozano sentenced him in March 2013 to 12 years in prison, two...

    Rochdale, Rotherham, Derby, Oxford. The towns change, but the pattern is always the same. Gangs of men, mainly of Pakistani Muslim heritage, lure white girls as young as 10 with gifts and displays of affection. Next, the girl is raped as a way of “breaking her in”. Once the child’s spirit is subdued, and her mind fogged with drugs, she is sold for sex to multiple men at Ł200 a time. If the girl tries to break away, a gang member might threaten to behead her or firebomb her home. Mohammed Karrar, who was found guilty in the Oxford sex-grooming...
