Justin Cox former Saskatchewan Roughrider found not guilty of assault

first_imgREGINA – A player who was cut from the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team over an alleged incident of domestic violence has been found not guilty of assault causing bodily harm.And Justin Cox, 24, says he hopes he can resume his career now.“Hopefully I get it back. I really want to play with the Roughriders,” Cox said Monday after the decision by provincial court Judge Pat Reis.“Hopefully I can get to wear that green and white again and you know, play football again, period.”The defensive back was released by the CFL team on April 19, one day after Regina police charged him as the result of investigation into an allegation of intimate partner violence.But Reis said there’s no evidence to support the charge after hearing from five Crown witnesses.“I just don’t see the evidence is there,” Reis said when senior Crown prosecutor Kim Jones attempted to make closing comments in the case.Jones acknowledged that outside court.“There has to be proof beyond a reasonable doubt that an assault causing bodily harm took place and the Crown’s case didn’t meet that standard,” he said.The defence decided not to present any evidence or call any witnesses.Court heard that police were called April 18 about a 23-year-old woman with injuries consistent with a physical attack.A police officer and an acquaintance of the woman told the court that they saw a bump on her head and bruising after a fight at Regina home. They also said it appeared a braid of hair had been torn from her head.Riders’ wide receiver, Joe Craig, who was living in the house with Cox, told court that the couple was arguing over the code for an iPhone.Craig said he was standing between Cox and the woman, and he never saw him hit her.“No, sir, not all,” Craig testified.Craig also said Cox did not push her down a flight of stairs, but that she fell.“When I turned around, she was on the ground,” he said.The woman told the court that the braid was a loose hair extension that came out when she fell down the stairs.In her own testimony, she described a rocky relationship.Court heard police were called to another apartment of the couple because of noise complaints.The woman said she was unhappy with the attention that she believed Cox was giving to other women and that would lead to arguments where she would scream at him.“I would get very jealous,” she told the court.She said Cox would “try to get away from the situation” and that she would physically block the door, jump on him to keep him from leaving and throw things at him. She said he never intentionally hit her.On April 18, she said they had their “usual argument” and Cox said he was leaving her.“It made me very angry, much angrier than I’ve been in a very long time,” she said.Defence lawyer Sharon Fox asked if the woman threatened to ruin Cox’s career and the woman said: “That’s correct.”The Riders released Cox when the assault charge became public and the CFL also said he would no longer be allowed to play with any team in the league.The former Mississippi State player had signed a two-year extension with the Roughriders in December after he recorded 42 defensive tackles and four interceptions in 15 games in 2016, en route to being named the team’s most outstanding rookie.Cox was released by the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs in 2015 after being arrested and charged with domestic violence twice in less than a year.last_img read more

first_imgJAKARTA, Indonesia — Investigators of the Oct. 28 crash of a Lion Air flight into the Java Sea say the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft was deemed airworthy when it made its final takeoff from Jakarta.The officials summoned reporters Thursday to refute reports on a news conference the day before where some media reported they had said the plane was not airworthy when it took off.The investigators were reporting on data from the aircraft’s black boxes. They say the cockpit voice recorder, which is still missing and being searched for, is needed to understand what caused the jet to plunge in the Java Sea just 11 minutes after takeoff.Investigator Nurcahyo Utomo said that based on test results after the aircraft’s problems were repaired the aircraft was declared airworthy.The Associated Presslast_img read more

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been on a tear — 43 wins in 50 games since June 9, the best 50-game stretch in MLB history — and they now stand at 79-32, which puts the team in a position to win more games than the 2001 Seattle Mariners and 1906 Chicago Cubs, who each won 116 games, the most ever by a baseball team in a season.According to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo model, which simulates the remainder of the season using power ratings and each team’s probability of winning every game, the Dodgers are on pace to win 112 games. But that’s just their average outcome — in some simulations they win more, and in some they win less. In a shade over 20 percent of our simulations, they win at least 116 games, which would tie the all-time mark. And 13.5 percent of the time, they finish the season with at least 117 victories, setting a new single-season record for greatness. 11713.55.1 CHANCE DODGERS FINISH WITH… 11620.16.5 1195.12.2 1202.91.4 Elo still doesn’t quite think the Dodgers are the greatest team of all-time. Their 1608 Elo rating (through Sunday’s 8-0 rout of the New York Mets) only ranks sixth-best for a team through 111 games since 1901, trailing the 1944 St. Louis Cardinals, 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates, and the 1938, 1939 and 1998 New York Yankees. But if L.A. does end up smashing the wins record, they’ll be on the short list of greatest teams ever — particularly if they can finally get over the hump in the playoffs.Check out our latest MLB predictions. read more

Memo Raises Legal Questions With Alaska Budget Language

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A legislative attorney says language in Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposal giving his budget office discretion to transfer money within departments raises legal and constitutional questions. The memo was requested and released by Sen. Bill Wielechowski (wil-uh-KOW’-ski), a Democratic member of the Senate Finance Committee. The budget language in question states that at the budget office’s discretion, it could transfer funding between items in a department. Linda Bruce, in a memo, writes that a court is unlikely to find that the language is legally permissible or constitutional. She notes that the Legislature has the power of appropriation. Dunleavy spokesman Matt Shuckerow says the state Department of Law has not raised concerns with the language.last_img read more
