WPB Uber Driver Convicted of Rape Gets New Trial

first_imgUber driver, 60-year-old Gary Kitching was convicted of raping a woman he picked up from SunFest three years ago. Now a judge says he will get a new trial.Kitchings is serving a 22 year prison sentence after being convicted of three counts of sexual battery, burglary with assault or battery, and false imprisonment in 2018.Investigators said in May 2017 Kitchings picked up a woman from SunFest and drove her to her home in Jupiter. The woman claimed Kitchings broke into her home and raped her. Kitchings claimed they had consensual sex.The ruling on a new trial came from the 4th District Court of Appeal.The court ruled the judge made a mistake by not allowing the defense to introduce his initial statement to police to counter accusations that he made up his story later.According to the court, the judge should not have allowed into evidence the second statement from the woman.Kitchings will likely ask to be released from custody, while awaiting the retrial. Prior to his arrest, he worked with foster children at a non-profit called Place of Hope in Palm Beach Gardens.last_img read more

Eagles Beat Togo 2-0, Fail to Qualify for Cameroon 2020

first_imgSuper Eagles Nigeria’s attacking force of Ndifreke Effiong, Sunusi Ibrahim, Sunkanmi Olawoyin and Sikiru Alimi asked question after question of the Togolese defence.In the 8th minute, Alimi, who scored the Eagles B’s only goal in the first leg, scooped the ball from another attack and left his marker for dead before firing past goalkeeper Abdoul-Moubarak Aigba for the first goal of the day.The goal further spurred the Eagles, and in the 19th minute Aigba was well –placed to save as Sunusi Ibrahim released a fierce shot. Another shot by Ibrahim nearly slipped into the net in the 25th minute, but Messan Toudji cleared off the line with Aigba beaten. Four minutes later, another shot by Ibrahim screamed away from goal.Alimi got his and Nigeria’s second of the day in the 71st minute – a scorcher from the edge of the box off a pass from Ndifreke Effiong.Nigeria continued to throw everything into the game, looking for the third goal that would send them to Cameroon at the expense of Togo. But it never came, despite the boys giving it a good fight.Instead, Togo’s Sparrow Hawks will make their first –ever appearance at the CHAN finals next year summer.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Despite giving it a good and praiseworthy fight, the Super Eagles B were undone by heavy deficit from the first leg and failed to qualify for next year’s African Nations Championship finals after a 3-4 aggregate loss to Togo’s Sparrow Hawks.Togo won the first leg 4-1 in Lome last month and were confident of picking their first –ever ticket to the finals of the competition reserved for professionals playing in their home leagues on the continent. Yet, they had to dig very deep into their defensive arsenal and resort to time –wasting tactics to edge out a determined Nigeria.It was fierce and furious from the first blast of Nigerien referee Abdoulaye Rhissa Al-Mustapha’s whistle, with the Eagles aware before kick off that they needed to score a minimum of three goals without a reply to consign the visitors to elimination.last_img read more

Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer discusses head coaches’ accountability, role in hearing with Committee on Infractions

first_img Published on March 17, 2015 at 8:05 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ In the wake of the NCAA handing down sanctions on Syracuse University, the topic of head coaches being held accountable for actions in their program has arisen often.SU football head coach Scott Shafer addressed the topic Tuesday evening, expressing his opinion that part of his job is to simply follow the rules the NCAA lays out for him.“It’s got to be reasonable,” Shafer said of head coaches being held responsible. “You know, the speed limit’s 55, you have to stay within a reasonable speed so you don’t get a ticket.“NCAA says we’re in charge of everything, then we’ve got to try and be in charge of everything.”He went onto say that monitoring everyone under him is a difficult task, but one he, and any other head coach, is well aware they’ll have to undertake when they take a job. Syracuse’s football program will vacate 11 wins and be put on probation for five years, but neither penalty was the result of an occurrence during Shafer’s time as head coach.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe was one of the members of SU’s contingent to attend the Committee on Infractions hearing in Chicago in late October, and explained how he only attended because he was asked to, and was representing the program as its head coach.“I was there for maybe two hours, really. I sat, listened and then I said, ‘Thanks for having me, I hope I never have to see you again,’” Shafer said. “That’s the truth of the story.” Commentslast_img read more

USC professors react to Bosco Tjan’s death

first_imgPhoto from USC NewsFew professors who enter USC, aiming to expand their academic achievements and help pass on their knowledge to students, ever expect to feel fear in their classrooms and offices. But for faculty members like Martin Krieger, a professor at the Price School of Public Policy, reports of violence — like the shooting at UCLA last summer in which a student killed an engineering professor — are not that unusual.“Over the years, every once in a while you hear about a graduate student murdering a faculty member — not often, maybe once every few years,” Krieger said. “Professors are semi-public figures, and there are problems sometimes.”Since the death of psychology professor Bosco Tjan on campus in December, the USC community has been working to come to terms with the loss of one of its own. But despite vigils, memorial services and memos sent from the administration, one group at USC is continuing to struggle with lasting questions around safety and security — faculty, including professors who say they feel unsafe at work.David Jonathan Brown, a graduate neuroscience student who worked in Tjan’s lab, is accused of fatally stabbing the professor in his office in the Seeley G. Mudd Building. Brown has pled not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and is currently awaiting trial.“I’ve heard about [Tjan’s death], but very little information was given out,“ Krieger said. “We have no idea why the student did this, and it was sort of buried in a very funny way.”Leigh Tost, an assistant professor in the management and organization department of the Marshall School of Business, said that professors have been aware of faculty security for some time, and that Tjan’s death was perhaps more of a reminder than a wake-up call.“There have been so many tragedies like this across the country in recent years that many professors were worried about their safety already,” Tost said in an email to the Daily Trojan. “It’s sad to say, but any time I teach, I identify exit doors.”Krieger said that the best thing professors can do to prevent violence on campus is to suggest students get the counseling and mental health support they need.“If you have a student who’s really in trouble, you need to get them help,” Krieger said.Some USC faculty expressed thoughts of fear, calling for increased vigilance and safety procedures that might prevent incidents like this from occurring in the future. One professor from Marshall, who asked to stay anonymous, said that the University should consider installing security systems, such as metal detectors, in academic buildings.“The school should make it more secure for everyone,” she said. “When you enter a building in a company, you can’t just enter any way you want, you have to go through a security system. Why don’t schools have protocols like this?”The Department of Public Safety could not be reached for comment. The professor also noted that USC does take steps to ensure professors can recognize students who may be more likely to feel depressed or act out by providing information on identifying students who could be depressed and stressed.“I’m also paying attention to any students who appear depressed — maybe I’ll take the initiative to call and ask them how they are feeling and suggest the counseling center,” she said. “Sometimes they can be shy about using it, so I can encourage that they get the professional help they need.”The professor also said that mandatory training for students and professors alike should be put in place to help them identify who may be feeling severely depressed or stressed. She said that since the school already mandates alcohol awareness training, this could be a valuable supplement to make sure mental health and professor safety are priorities.“I think that the school should implement training for everyone, not just professors, to help us all identify who is likely to feel stressed or depressed so we can help them,” she said.last_img read more

Men’s basketball: No. 17 Wisconsin hosts No. 22 Syracuse in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

first_imgNo. 17 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team takes on No. 22 Syracuse University at the Kohl Center Tuesday night in the second chapter of the ACC/Big Ten rivalry series between the two schools.Wisconsin and Syracuse head into Tuesday’s battle on the backs of two completely different results in their last games. The Badgers (4-2) are fresh off a 55-point drubbing of Prairie View A&M University that witnessed senior forward Nigel Hayes score a game-high 17 points in only 19 minutes.Despite winning four consecutive games to start the season, Syracuse fell by 14 to the University of South Carolina in the final of the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational tournament last Saturday. The Orange averaged more than 83 points per game through those first four games, but managed only 50 in their 64-50 loss to the Gamecocks.Men’s basketball: No. 9 Badgers open 2016-17 with a complete win over Central ArkansasThe No. 9 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team began their 2016-17 campaign Friday night at the Kohl Center, taking Read…While UW has yet to see a team anywhere Syracuse’s caliber on its home floor this season, the Badgers have managed a 3-0 record thus far. On the other hand, Tuesday’s challenge in Madison serves as the first, true away game of the year for Syracuse.Keeping the score low is a strategy that Wisconsin has thrived on for years, and Saturday won’t be any different. If the Badgers are going to win, they’ll need to contain an explosive Syracuse offense lead by graduate guard Andrew White III.White III, who is currently averaging 15.8 points per game, is far from the only weapon that the Orange can use to run away with the score in the blink of an eye though. As of Tuesday night, Syracuse boasts four players who are averaging double digits in points per game.Tuesday night showcases an exciting battle under the rim between standout sophomore forwards from both teams. Despite posting 11.9 points per game thus far, Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ has made a name for himself through tenacious defense in the paint.The sophomore forward currently leads the Badgers in steals this season by a mile, but also boasts the second highest block total. Happ has averaged just shy of two pickpockets per game ­— unconventionally talented hands for a big man — with more than double (13) Bronson Koenig’s second-highest total of six.Happ’s challenge comes in the form of 6-foot-9-inches, 223-pound Tyler London, who has become Syracuse’s second-highest scorer with an 11.4 PPG through five games.Syracuse’s offense, however, is debatably less dangerous than their suffocating defense. Through the same four-game season opening stretch, Syracuse allowed only 52.5 points per game from the defensive side.Legendary Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim is notorious for his team’s masterful execution of the 2-3 zone defense. Boeheim has perfected this scheme for quite some time frustrating opposing head coaches.Men’s basketball: No. 9 Badgers face first test on the road against No. 22 CreightonThe No. 9 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team will travel to Omaha, Nebraska for their first top 25 matchup Read…Given Wisconsin’s offensive blunder against then-No. 6 University of North Carolina in the title game of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational tournament last week, Boeheim’s 2-3 may pose a crippling threat the UW offense.The Badgers will need to get their offensive stars, such as senior guard Bronson Koenig and Nigel Hayes rolling early in order to come out on top of the ‘Cuse.Wisconsin vs. Syracuse Game Details:Where: Kohl Center, Madison, WisconsinWhen: 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29TV: ESPN (Channel 660 on UW Residence Hall Cable) / WatchESPNLine: Wisconsin (-5.5)last_img read more

Volleyball: Badgers rebound from poor start, sit atop Big Ten standings

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin volleyball team (14-4, 10-0 Big Ten) closed their non-conference schedule with back-to-back losses against Pac-12 powerhouse Washington, allowing their highest hitting percentage in Head Coach Kelly Sheffield’s seven-year tenure at Wisconsin. They entered Big Ten play with zero home wins for the first time in over 30 years. That didn’t phase Sheffield. “It’s exciting. Big Ten volleyball is nasty, and this year in our sport, teams are just beating up on each other,” Sheffield said, “Our home matches, from a record standpoint, it probably hasn’t been as good as what most of us are wanting, but it’s been entertaining, high-level stuff in the Field House.” Sheffield wasn’t kidding about the “high-level” competition the Badgers had faced. Their four losses all came to teams currently in the top-11 of the AVCA Coaches’ Poll, including a four-set loss to No. 1 Baylor who has dropped only two sets this entire season. That high-level competition has continued into conference play, but the Badgers haven’t lost since those Sheffield comments.Volleyball: Badgers continue reign atop Big Ten standings after pair of wins over Illinois, NorthwesternFor the first time in Head Coach Kelly Sheffield’s seven years at the University of Wisconsin, the No. 6 UW Read…During the current ten-game winning streak, the Badgers have faced five ranked teams and dropped a total of just five sets. Sheffield said last week that their mindset hasn’t changed throughout the season, following wins or losses. “It’s back to work. It’s back to finding ways to get better, and we would do that after a loss. We’d do that after a win,” Sheffield said, “I don’t have to worry that they’re going to take things out of perspective. They didn’t when we lost a couple in a row. I certainly don’t expect them to change who they are just because they won a couple in a row.” While their mindset has remained the same, their gameplay has differed greatly in multiple areas.Volleyball: Badgers begin Big Ten play with much to proveLast season, the Wisconsin volleyball team faced consecutive losses just once during their impressive 25-7 campaign. This year, the No. Read…First, their defense has rebounded from a rough start. Between both blocking prowess and backcourt passing, the Badgers have improved significantly. In their first eight games of the season, they allowed a .255 hitting percentage which would put them at 320th in the country out of 332 teams. Since the start of Big Ten play, Wisconsin has flipped the script allowing a .178 hitting percentage which ranks fifth-best in the conference. They have also decreased their receiving errors per set from 1.17 during the non-conference slate to 0.57 in Big Ten matchups. Sheffield praised the efforts of his back row, highlighted by Lauren Barnes, Izzy Ashburn and libero Tiffany Clark, as a noticeable part of his team’s improved play.Women’s Volleyball: Kelly Sheffield shines light on team depth for upcoming seasonThe University of Wisconsin women’s volleyball team recently began their regular season schedule. Hopefully, this season will be one of Read…Second, the Badgers are keeping defenses off-balance with a varied attack. In the beginning of the year, the Badgers leaned heavily on two-time All-American Dana Rettke for offense, especially in their losses. Junior outside hitters Molly Haggerty and Grace Loberg struggled in those losses, leaving Rettke with the majority of the load. As the Big Ten season has progressed, Haggerty and Loberg have both put in quality performances in crucial games. Against then-No. 5 Penn State, Loberg ripped off a career-high 21 kills on just 35 swings and even added four digs, leading the sweep of the Nittany Lions. “[Loberg] picked up her blocking as well, but it’s the work and the effort she’s putting in the practice gym that’s really paying off,” Sheffield said. “She’s turning into a big-time outside hitter for us right now.”Volleyball: Badgers surge with pair of top-5 wins over Penn State, NebraskaIn a few of their early-season losses, the No. 7 University of Wisconsin Badgers volleyball team (8-4, 4-0 Big Ten) Read…Loberg currently holds the highest hitting percentage among outside hitters in the Big Ten within conference play. Following Loberg’s 21-kill performance, Haggerty, against then-No. 2 Nebraska, led the team with 11 kills at a .391 hitting percentage. Complementary hitters Madison Duello and Danielle Hart have turned in timely performances as well. Duello, a Third-Team All-American, has struggled to continue her play from a year ago, but she has found success curling inside against defenses cheating to the outsides. Hart totaled 10 kills on just 14 swings against Nebraska and blocked 11 balls in the five-set thriller with Illinois.Volleyball: All-American Rettke remains hungry following summer with Team USAJunior Dana Rettke has been one of the most intimidating forces in college volleyball for over two years now. A Read…Lastly, the Badgers have served relentlessly, forcing numerous errors and out-of-system play from opponents. They also defend serves particularly well. Wisconsin leads the Power Five conferences with 1.79 aces/set. That number includes 1.94 aces/set during their eight-game win streak.But, aces are not the only result of strong performances behind the service line. “This is a team that we’re putting pressure on people all six rotations,” Sheffield said. “It’s not just being able to go back and put in some tough serves, but can you do it consistently? So we’re able to do that all six rotations.” That pressure leads to opponents serving the Badgers free balls which the Badgers often turn into kills. Sheffield has never had a Badger team serve at this level. No other team under his Wisconsin tenure has averaged more than 1.3 aces per set. Then again, Sheffield has never had a Badger team enter Big Ten play without a home win or rattle off a 10-0 conference start.Volleyball: Badgers extend winning streak to six, sit alone atop Big TenFollowing back-to-back wins over top-five opponents, the University of Wisconsin volleyball team (10-4, 6-0 Big Ten) could have taken their Read…Sheffield has also had the luxury of Rettke at the net the past two and a half years. But Rettke suffered a foot injury and missed the first game of her career in the Badgers’ win over Northwestern. There is still no timetable for her return, but walk-on Nicole Shanahan performed adequately in her stead. “We don’t have anybody on our roster that’s going to replace a First-Team All-American,” Sheffield said, “[Shanahan] comes in, she plays with confidence. She executes what she’s meant to execute.” With Wisconsin in the midst of a stretch with six out of seven games on the road, the Badgers will need that execution as long as Rettke is sidelined.last_img read more
