Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A judge granted an ex-Nassau County police commander’s request to postpone serving his jail sentence for a misconduct conviction while New York State’s highest court decides if it will hear his appeal.Leslie Stein, an associate judge at the state Court of Appeals in Albany, granted Monday the stay of execution of a 60-day jail term that William Flanagan, a former deputy Nassau police commissioner, was sentenced to after he was convicted of misconduct and conspiracy two years ago.“Stay is granted only pending this court’s determination” of whether it will hear Flanagan’s attorneys argue why they think the court should overturn his conviction, the judge wrote in her order. The conviction was upheld two weeks ago by the state Supreme Court Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department.Prosecutors have said that Flanagan helped quash the case against Zachary Parker, of Merrick, who stole thousands of dollars worth of electronics from his alma mater, John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore, shortly before he graduated in 2009 while he interned with the Nassau police Ambulance Bureau. The burglar’s father, Gary, was volunteering for the nonprofit Nassau County Police Department Foundation when he asked Flanagan for help with the case.Acting Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas had opposed the request to stay Flanagan’s sentence. The appellate division in Brooklyn first stayed the execution of his sentence pending the first round of appeals.Flangan’s attorney, Donna Aldea, head of the Appellate Practice Group for Garden City-based Barket Marion Epstein & Kearon, LLP, said that she is confident that the Court of Appeals will overturn the conviction. Her argument is that he didn’t receive a fair trial due to prosecutorial misconduct, prejudicial statements and insufficient evidence.Singas’ office stands by the conviction. A panel of four judges in the appellate division wrote in their decision upholding the conviction that any errors prosecutors made were mitigated by “overwhelming evidence of the defendant’s guilt.”Two other ex-police commanders—John Hunter, the retired Deputy Chief of Patrol, and Det. Sgt. Alan Sharpe—both pleaded guilty to misconduct and were sentenced to probation in connection with the case, which stemmed from a Press expose into police favoritism for the nonprofit’s donors. Zachary Parker pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced to prison after violating his probation. He has since been released.

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin opened the scoring in the first minute of the game, netting an improvised overhead kick after Arsenal failed to deal with a well-delivered free kick. Arsenal’s teenage emergency left-back Bukayo Saka, who replaced the injured Sead Kolasinac in the opening minutes, delivered a superb cross shortly after that was volleyed in by striker Edward Nketiah to level the score. Aubameyang then put Arsenal ahead, showing his composure to finish a one-on-one past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, before Everton winger Richarlison made it 2-2 on the stroke of half time. Aubameyang added his second, Arsenal’s third, moments into the second half with a standing header from just outside the six-yard box. Gomes came off the bench on 59 minutes to make his first appearance in less than four months after sustaining a broken ankle in a 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur earlier this season.Tags: ArsenalBukayo SakaDominic Calvert-LewinEvertonPierre-Emerick Aubameyang
By Rawle ToneyTHE Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), announced on Tuesday, that their Qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will not be played in the FIFA match windows of October or November 2020, and will instead begin with the first round in the FIFA match window of March 2021.In a release, the Confederation said the decision came following recent discussions with its member associations, FIFA and other stakeholders as they continue to plan for the resumption of its competitions across the region.The reason, CONCACAF stated, is because many parts of the region continue to have very challenging public health situations.Additionally, several countries across the Confederation have travel restrictions and quarantine requirements, which would make international football involving 30 national teams extremely difficult.Guyana’s Golden Jaguars were drawn in Group F alongside Trinidad and Tobago, St Kitts and Nevis, Puerto Rico and The Bahamas.With just one month to go before Guyana kickoff their 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers against Trinidad and Tobago, president of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), Wayne Forde, said he’s worried, that the current guidelines set by the country’s National COVID-19 Task Force, will be a bugbear for the country’s preparation plans.“Absolutely nothing is taking place because nothing can take place until such time that we have the approval and the guidance and protocols from the Ministry of Health and the COVID-19 Task Force,” Forde said during an appearance on NCN’s Guyana Today TV show on Friday.The Golden Jaguars were drawn in Group F in the CONCACAF zone of the 2022 Qatar World Cup Qualifier, alongside Trinidad and Tobago, St Kitts and Nevis, Puerto Rico and The Bahamas.According to CONCACAF’s schedule for their leg of the 2022 Qatar World Cup qualifiers, the Golden Jaguars are set to travel to Trinidad and Tobago on October 8, where they will kick-off their campaign against the Soca Warriors.Following their game in the Twin Island Republic Guyana will return home to play the Bahamas on Tuesday, October 13.On November 13, Guyana will travel to St Kitts and Nevis for their third game and then host Puerto Rico on November 17.Only recently, in a Chronicle Sport article, president of the Guyana Football Federation, Wayne Forde, said was worried that the current guidelines set by the country’s National COVID-19 Task Force, would’ve been a bugbear for the country’s preparation plans.GFF president had reasoned that while football in some parts of the world has returned under strict protocols by FIFA and the respective health officials, locally, it’s a contrasting story.However, while most of the Jaguars’ overseas-based players have returned to action in their respective leagues, locally, football has been at a stand-still since the pandemic in March, or, as the case of the GFF Elite League, since March of 2019.Forde noted that both the game’s global body, FIFA and the confederation of CONCACAF, are closely monitoring the situation for the participating countries, while revealing the GFF has been providing “constant update to them, so I’m sure in a matter of days we’ll be formally notified by the decisions of FIFA and CONCACAF that will help to mitigate what we anticipate a real problem, if we’re unable to prepare properly.”Guyana’s best performance at a FIFA World Cup qualifier tournament came in the run-up to the 2014 edition, where the Golden Jaguars had reached the penultimate round of the CONCACAF Zone.
Paris, France | AFP | Edinson Cavani struck twice as Paris Saint-Germain beat Strasbourg 5-2 on Saturday to relieve some of the pressure on the runaway Ligue 1 leaders following their Champions League defeat at Real Madrid.Strasbourg struck early through Jean Eudes Aholou, but PSG hit back courtesy of a Julian Draxler effort before two goals in as many minutes from Neymar and Angel Di Maria put the home side in control.Stephane Bahoken pulled one back midway through the second half as Strasbourg threatened an unlikely comeback, but Cavani’s league-best 22nd and 23rd goals of the season ensured victory for Unai Emery’s team. PSG responded quickly though as an intended pass through from Neymar was diverted straight into the path of Draxler who swept low into the far corner for his first league goal in over three months.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 Captain Thiago Silva and Di Maria were recalled after Emery faced criticism for dropping them for the 3-1 loss in Madrid, and the coach was whistled by a section of home supporters unhappy with the Spaniard’s decisions in midweek. Neymar was largely overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo in Spain on Wednesday, but the Brazilian could have struck within 90 seconds at the Parc des Princes when he was denied the legs of Strasbourg goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja.The visitors, who inflicted PSG’s first defeat of the season in early December, sprang another surprise by grabbing the lead on six minutes following a clinical counter-attack.Neymar was guilty of overplaying and lost possession allowing Strasbourg to break with great effect, the move finishing off with Aholou steering home a precise first-time finish from Kenny Lala’s cross.
A West Palm Beach man is behind bars after he allegedly kidnapped a 12-year-old boy from a bus stop Wednesday afternoon.According to Boynton Beach police, 26-year-old Timothy Miller picked up the boy saying he “gives kids rides all the time and not to worry because he won’t do anything weird.”When Miller began driving erratically, the boy tried to open the car door, and Miller told him he was not allowed to leave.The boy then jumped out of the car, hit the pavement, and was reportedly knocked unconscious.Two witnesses came to the boy’s aid, and then followed the suspect on I-95 blocking his vehicle until police arrived at the scene.Miller was arrested and later told police he thought the boy was around 14-16 years old and attempted to purchase drugs from him.He is charged with kidnapping, child neglect, and resisting arrest with violence.Miller appeared before a judge Thursday morning and was denied bond.

The Aussie wicketkeeper was at his witty best at the press conference following an innings and five runs victory over Pakistan in the first Test at Brisbane.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty ImagesThe Woolloongabba Stadium or better known as the Gabba in Brisbane has been the venue for the first match of the Australian summer since a long period, but last year the series against India kicked-off at Adelaide and the Gabba did not feature at all in the entire series.“We’ll certainly try and we’ll have to run that by Virat,” Paine joked.“That’s (Gabba) where we like to start our summer and it has been for a long, long time except for last summer. As I said, we’ll ask Virat and see if we can get his permission to play here and maybe even get a pink-ball Test if he’s in a good mood,” he added.Prior to their historic day-night Test against Bangladesh, Virat Kohli claimed that he was open to playing a pink-ball Test in Australia as long as the team could get a day-night practice match at the venue.Read Also:Shane Warne bats for D/N Adelaide test when India tour Australia in 2020Virat Kohli ready to play pink ball cricket in Australia – provided there is a practice match beforehand!
