California Sets Zero Bail for Many Offenses

first_img Community News Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * California’s Judicial Council has begun moving toward setting bail at zero for most misdemeanor and lower-level felonies in an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus in jails statewide by reducing the number of inmates.During a meeting by teleconference, the council Monday approved 11 temporary emergency rules designed to ensure public safety in the courts and jails while preserving civil rights. The rules, which take effect immediately, also allow local courts to set up remote hearings via teleconference technology and for counsel to appear on behalf of defendants in pretrial proceedings — as part of a bid to limit the number of people in courtrooms.The council also adopted rules to prioritize juvenile proceedings and extend the statute of limitations for civil proceedings.Two other changes allow electronic depositions in civil cases and extend time frames for certain temporary restraining orders.As Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye opened the session, she said the group was working swiftly, but deliberately.“(We are) trying our best to preserve rights and ultimately preserve lives,” Cantil-Sakauye said. “We are at this point truly with no guidance in either history, law or precedent.”The council’s first vote was to suspend foreclosures and evictions statewide, as a way to reinforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive order to delay such actions against California renters and homeowners.All the rules came at the request of Cantil-Sakauye, the council chair, and by recommendation of the chairs of six internal committees.“The Judicial Council should take these temporary actions in order to protect the health and safety of the public, court employees, attorneys, litigants, and judicial officers, as well as staff and inmates in detention facilities, and law enforcement during the state of emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Cantil-Sakauye stated in her request.More than 100 comments on the proposals were received from judges, public defenders, prosecutors, law enforcement, unions and members of the news media.Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey praised the move to reduce bail statewide, noting that Los Angeles County implemented a similar measure last week.“I applaud the chief justice and the Judicial Council for adopting a statewide zero bail for people charged with most misdemeanors and low-level felonies,” Lacey said.“In Los Angeles County, we implemented a zero-bail measure last week that allows us to further reduce the number of people in county jails and courthouses. I appreciate the collaboration among criminal justice leaders in Los Angeles County that has resulted in the rapid deployment of new and innovative approaches as we work to try to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.”Former San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, who will face Lacey in a runoff in November, said the virus has accomplished what criminal justice advocates and research studies could not.“The novel coronavirus has forced our system of justice to confront a not-so-novel question, one that largely defined the criminal justice reform movement even prior to the pandemic: Does keeping huge numbers of people in- custody on small-time offenses pose a greater threat to us all than letting them out?” Gascon asked.“This virus does not care if you’re a prosecutor, victim or a defendant. Innocent or guilty, this virus can still kill you.”The president of the Los Angeles County Public Defender Union, Nikhil Ramnaney, called the change to bail schedules statewide an important step. But he also noted that it applies only to new cases.“It still leaves thousands of people in local custody throughout the state who were arrested and had bail set prior to the amendment,” Ramnaney said. “We need to make sure that these people — charged with identical offenses and who do not pose any risk to public safety — are expedited for release. We believe that cash bail is clearly discriminatory against indigent persons and these discriminatory effects have been especially demonstrated during the emergency.”Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said the council should have allowed pretrial services professionals to do a risk assessment on some zero-bail cases, because some of the defendants may have prior strikes.“They didn’t do any risk assessment here,” Spitzer said. “They should use detention release staff to look at the dangerousness (of some defendants). I think that’s very shortsighted.”This was the second emergency meeting of the Judicial Council in response to the coronavirus outbreak.Even before the earlier meeting, Cantil-Sakauye took action on March 23 to suspend all jury trials in California’s superior courts for 60 days to allow courts to immediately adopt new rules to address the impact of the COVID- 19 pandemic.Also on March 23, Los Angeles County Superior Court Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile signed an order restricting access to all Los Angeles County courthouses to judges, commissioners, court staff and authorized people — including members of the media — until further notice, while also mandating social distancing of at least 6 feet.Two days later, Los Angeles-based unions representing prosecutors, public defenders and city attorneys called for a complete closure of local courts, claiming the mandate was not being followed and blasting the superior court’s failure to accommodate appearances by phone and video conference.

LVG: United could have won title

first_img As he watched the matches at his grand Cheshire home, all he felt was envy. United, of course, are not in the competition this season after their seventh-placed finish under David Moyes last term. But Van Gaal hopes to be dining at the top table again next year. “Of course I miss it,” he said. “When I look to the matches this week also, great matches and also sometimes disappointing because the level was not always high and the difference between the teams was very high, I believe, so I miss it very much. “I hope we shall achieve our goal for the season and play next season in the Champions League but we still have 15 points to fight for. It is not done yet.” The squad will heed Van Gaal’s warning about complacency. But given that United are eight points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool with five matches to go, it would take some collapse for the Red Devils to slip into the Europa League places. The Dutchman has already started scouting players for next season. He has also taken comfort from the fact that some of his signings from last summer have started to find form. Daley Blind and Ander Herrera are playing their best football of the season and against Chelsea Luke Shaw looked like the young left-back who shone so brightly for Southampton last season. Shaw has not had the best of seasons since joining United from Saints for £28million, but Van Gaal is convinced the 19-year-old will grow into a man and excel next season. “I believe in Shaw so for me it isn’t a surprise he played very well against Chelsea and I am very happy for him,” Van Gaal said. “It is of course the first season for a 19-year-old boy because he is still a boy and he is growing and maybe next year he is an adult in the pitch and I hope so.” Van Gaal still has a number of players missing for Sunday’s game at Everton. Defenders Phil Jones (ankle), Marcos Rojo (adductor) and Rafael (rib) are out and midfielder Michael Carrick (calf) is also unavailable. Centre-back Jonny Evans returns from suspension, but there are doubts over midfield duo Daley Blind (ankle) and Adnan Januzaj (ankle). Press Association Louis van Gaal thinks Manchester United may well have won the Barclays Premier League this year had it not been for their wretched start to the campaign. Table toppers Chelsea stretched their lead over third-placed United to 11 points last weekend with a 1-0 victory over the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge. Eden Hazard grabbed all three points for the Blues with a 38th-minute winner, but in truth there was little between the two teams and Van Gaal is already plotting to overthrow the champions elect next season. He admits he may not have had to wait that long before getting his hands on the top prize, though. Had it not been for a poor run of three wins in their opening 10 games, Van Gaal thinks it could have been United running away with the title in April, rather than Chelsea. “Yes, we had a very bad start,” the United manager told MUTV when asked if he wondered what might have been this season. “I have already explained that after several matches why so I don’t have to repeat myself but if we had started well, we could have been the champions.” With Chelsea now two victories away from opening up an unassailable lead, Van Gaal has already admitted defeat in the title race. His focus is now on qualifying for the Champions League. The world’s top club competition returned with a bang this week. Bayern Munich thrashed FC Porto 6-1 to set up a semi-final against Barcelona and Real Madrid edged a tense battle against their neighbours Atletico thanks to Javier Hernandez’s 88th minute winner. But while the rest of the football-loving public gasped and shrieked at a week of enjoyable continental football, Van Gaal did not enjoy it anywhere near as much. last_img read more

ICC World Cup Mayank Agarwal approved by ICC as replacement for Vijay Shankar in India cricket team World Cup squad

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Vijay Shankar sustained a toe injury.India lost to England by 31 runs in Edgbaston.India need only one win to reach 2019 World Cup semifinal.center_img New Delhi: Mayank Agarwal has been appproved as a replacement for Vijay Shankar in the Indian cricket team squad for 2019 World Cup by the International Cricket Council. The replacement of a player requires the approval of the Event Technical Committee before the replacement player can be officially added to the squad. The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 consists of Geoff Allardice (ICC, ETC chairman), Campbell Jamieson (ICC representative), Steve Elworthy (CWC representative), Alan Fordham (host representative), Harsha Bhogle and Kumar Sangakkara (both independent representatives).Shankar was ruled out of ICC World Cup 2019 after sustaining a toe injury prior to the encounter against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham. Agarwal is considered as a good bet to play in his first World Cup game during the clash against Bangladesh. Agarwal blasted 442 runs at an average of 88.42 in six games with three centuries.The Tamil Nadu all-rounder featured in three games for India and managed to score 58 runs at an average of 29. He also scalped two important wickets against the arch-rivals Pakistan at Old Trafford in Manchester. His contribution on and off the field will certainly be missed by India. Mayank Agarwal, on the other hand, will be playing his first ICC 50-over tournament and will look to utilize his Indian Premier League (IPL) form in the games to come. However, with the playing XI looking settled, it looks highly unlikely that Mayank Agarwal will feature in the games to come.In press statement released by BCCI said, “Vijay Shankar sustained a non displaced fracture of the left big toe, which will require a minimum of three weeks to heal. The injury rules him out of the ongoing World Cup. The Indian team management has requested the ICC to consider Mayank Agarwal as his replacement.”Earlier in the tournament, Shikhar Dhawan was ruled out of the World Cup after sustaining a thumb injury. The wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who featured in five one-day Internationals for India, replaced him into the side and also played his first World Cup game against England. Meanwhile, India will play their next game against Bangladesh at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The Indian team is currently placed at the second position with 11 points and need one win in their remaining two games to secure a semi-final berth.last_img read more

Canada defeats host Iroquois Nationals to win WILC for 4th straight time

first_imgThe Iroquois posed for the photo they didn’t want to take. They were the second group of players to accept medals — not the third, which receives gold.Once each player had the silver medal dangling from his neck, the Iroquois huddled on the field one last time and then saluted the home fans.“With this Iroqouis team, we knew we were going to have our hands full,” Canadian head coach Eddie Comeau said.Though it wasn’t always a guarantee, the Canadians finished the game powerfully and were celebrating another title just a few feet away. Family members flooded the field and wives and children took photos with the champions.When the Canadians took a team photo with the trophy, one player yelled, “Get those 1’s up,” a reference to where his team stands in international indoor lacrosse. Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 27, 2015 at 9:37 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Evans later stood next to the table where the championship trophy was handed out. He held his MVP plaque in his right hand and, as the Onondaga Nation Faithkeeper Oren Lyons gave a speech, two of his children were by his side.His wife, who was holding their third child, was in the middle of a scrum of photographers. The four of them made the five-hour drive on Saturday to see Shawn in the championship game. Wearing red Toms shoes and a Shawn Evans jersey-style T-shirt, his wife looked over at him. The two made eye contact and exchanged a mutual smile.“It was something special,” Evans said of having his family there.The motto of the WILC was “Lacrosse is home,” since an indigenous nation hosted an international sporting event for the first time.As Canada received their gold medals for the fourth time, “I’m coming home,” by Diddy played over the Carrier Dome loudspeakers.While the game might’ve come home, the gold medal stayed home. Comments Angus Goodleaf stood still 5 yards in front of the Iroquois net staring across the field. His right elbow sat on the butt end of his stick, which was firmly planted into the AstroTurf.The Iroquois goalie had just allowed the nail-in-the-coffin goal to Canada’s Shawn Evans, the eventual tournament MVP. Trailing by three goals with three minutes to play, the longed Iroquois comeback seemed as unrealistic as ever after being within one just minutes earlier.“They were just a little bit better,” Iroquois head coach Rick Kilgour said. “… If we could have tied it up, who knows? But I guess that’s what losers always say.”The Canadians’ unbeaten streak at the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship continued in the gold medal game with a 12-8 win over the Iroquois Nationals on Sunday in the Carrier Dome. For the fourth straight time since the inception of the WILC, Canada won gold and the Iroquois Nationals took silver.After Lyle Thompson brought the Nationals within just one goal at 8-7 early in the fourth quarter, Canada went on a 4-1 run to ice the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We knew we had to worry about what’s next and not worry about what just happened,” said Canada’s Curtis Dickson, who scored four goals. “We’ve been great all tournament at bouncing back.”Lyle Thompson and his brother Miles Thompson were limited to just one goal apiece. Kilgour said his team jokes that they’re like the Beatles because they attract so much attention from fans, but they also were the focus of Canada’s defense. They were forced to take shots on the run and had limited time and space to shoot.As Canada pulled away in the fourth quarter, its fans in Section 114 grew louder as the lead continued to increase. They were outnumbered by fans of the Iroquois, the host nation, but the red and white flags flew more and more frequently.Iroquois’ Randy Staats said his team wasn’t deflated as it focused more on just getting the next goal.The problem was that in the fourth quarter, it was Canada scoring the next goal.“Someday, we’re gonna get one more than those guys,” Kilgour said.As the Iroquois waited for the medal ceremony, players stood motionless on the field, many with watery eyes. Lyle Thompson spoke with a team staff member as his chinstrap dangled from the left side of his helmet, which was still on his head. Jeff Shattler stared stonefaced into the crowd and didn’t change his facial expression for several minutes.Logan Reidsma | Photo Editorlast_img read more

Senegal v Algeria: kick-off time, team news, head-to-head, form and more

first_imgThe final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations is almost here as the magnificent tournament finally draws to a close in Egypt, with Senegal and Algeria emerging as the two finalists.Both of these sides are worthy finalists, having produced strong displays throughout the tournament and each coming through tough semi-final clashes in dramatic fashion.Algeria may have edged their group meeting with a solitary goal, but it was a tight encounter with both teams enjoying 50 per cent possession and each managing just two shots on target.With the trophy on the line on Friday night we should expect a similarly contested game, and backing the match to go to extra time appeals.READ ALSO:  A fifth “All-African Coaches” AFCON finalWhat’s kickoff time?
