A woman, who assaulted a fellow prisoner at the East La Penitence lock-ups, while being on remand for an attempted murder charge was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment on Tuesday after she was found guilty of the offence at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Revelana SmithRevelana Smith of William Street, Kitty, Georgetown, and Savita Persaud, 33, of Station Street, Kitty, Georgetown, both prisoners, were cross-charged with assaulting each other.It is alleged that on April 23, 2019, at the East La Penitence Police Station, 25-year-old Smith unlawfully assaulted Persaud.The charge against Persaud stated that on the same day in question and at the same location, she unlawfully assaulted Smith. However, the matter against Persaud is still ongoing after she denied the offence.Magistrate Faith McGusty in handing down the sentence to Smith, told the court that after reviewing the evidence, there was sufficient evidence to convict. Hence, Smith was sentenced to nine months behind bars.Persaud on her first court appearance had said, “I had just exited the washroom and I was in the process of putting on my clothes when Smith came up to me and began calling me names and dealt me several punches to my face”.The woman continued by saying Smith threw her to the floor and bit her on several parts of her body, attempted to bite off one of her fingers and in an attempt to defend herself, she scratched Smith on her face.Smith, however, gave another version of the story saying, “Persaud was my associate but she started to behave stupid because she sleeping with a big one at East La Penitence Station. I simply asked her to call someone for me and she said no, so when the church service was over, I tried to talk to her and she punched me; that’s how the fight broke out.”Smith is currently before the court on an attempted murder charge after she allegedly cut off a policewoman’s finger.Persaud, the owner of Kitty-based Liquid Love Bar, is currently serving a 15-year prison sentence after being found guilty of trafficking two Venezuelan women.
PALMDALE – The doors to the Palmdale gym were closed more than 40 minutes before the opening tip. The facility had already reached its 1,000-person capacity, leaving nearly 500 people waiting outside Friday night. Knight (24-3, 10-2) missed its opportunity to win the Golden League title outright. “Everyone thought we were the underdogs, but ourselves,” Haynes said. “We knew we were going to come out strong. This win was no fluke.” Palmdale, ranked No. 13 by the Daily News, held the Hawks leading scorer, Jerome Motom, to 11 points, including just four in the secondhalf. No. 5 Knight had the significant height advantage, but Palmdale’s pressure defense limited the Hawks offensively. “We were at our best tonight,” Haynes said. “This is not the same team that struggled earlier in the season.” Those who made it inside, however, were greeted with a stunning upset, as Palmdale rolled to a 75-50 victory over visiting Knight of Palmdale to clinch a share of the Golden League title. Justin Haynes scored a game-high 23 points and Joshua Jackson added 18 for the Falcons (21-5 overall, 12-2 Golden), who never trailed despite entering the game as significant underdogs. Haynes had 18 points in the first half to pace Palmdale to an early lead. The 6-foot-7 wing made a tomahawk dunk with 1:20 remaining in the second quarter to put the Falcons ahead 36-20, their biggest lead of the first half. Knight cut the deficit to 36-25 by halftime, but Palmdale scored the first sevenpoints of the secondhalf en route to a 20-point, third-quarter lead. Christopher Hicks added 14 points for Palmdale, while Steve Delatorre scored 14points for Knight. email@example.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Rancho Palos Verdes “public records request” caper has all the trappings of a Washington, D.C., whodunit. Councilmen Doug Stern, Tom Long and Larry Clark have portrayed the requestors as guerilla fighters and perpetrators of financial ruin. This secret legal request is offensive, but it may very well have some merit. For five years some of us have questioned the financial priorities and management of the city. Until recently questions always received a response, but not necessarily an answer. During the recent election period, several questions to the new city manager were unanswered, delayed or ignored. Councilman Peter Gardiner finally started to question the council majority’s financial practices. City Council candidate Paul Wright also used his war chest to address this issue. One of the major points was/is information technology, including PVNet and Channel 33. Coincidentally, the management audit that includes this item was scheduled for completion after the election. Questions such as how much staff time was spent on items like the Natural Communities Conservation Planning (NCCP) plan were answered by “we don’t track those hours,” and yet the city manager knows that this public records request will cost $15,000 to $20,000. The council constantly allocates similar amounts to nonbudgeted items with barely a thought about the budget, but this request may require a budget modification. If only they had thought about budget management last year when the General Fund expenditures increased about $2.8 million (20 percent) from the previous year. When asked how much the city spent on consultants last year, the response was that it was not possible to answer that question. Just recently, the council allocated $15,750 to see if anyone actually watches Channel 33 and may spend $50,000 on the ill-defined vision plan in addition to the $135,000 previously spent on an abandoned plan. I have no idea what the requestors have in mind, but there may be more to the story than City Hall wants you to know. – DON REEVES Rancho Palos Verdes Huckabee: just like Bush Just when I thought times were getting better with Bush leaving next year, along comes another Bible-thumper from the middle of the country, who pardons hardened criminals for secretive and political reasons, and starts climbing in the polls. The rest of the United States must do a better job of getting the vote out so we don’t have to sit back and watch as Border Patrol agents sit in jail for doing their jobs while others get out after committing horrible crimes. Mike Huckabee reeks of Bush policy. I could see the occupation dragging out forever with Huckabee in office while Huckabee looks for more weapons of mass destruction. You should put the voters in this area on notice. The Bush administration is one of the most secretive in history. Mike Huckabee comes across as secretive as well. How did he stay in office for 10 years in Arkansas? The rest of us do not need four more years of secretive administration. – CHARLES ANTON San Pedro Reduce air traffic at LAX We are told Los Angeles International Airport is an accident about to happen. And what, kill hundreds of people, close LAX for months or years, cost the economy millions of dollars? And why? Simply because LAX management permits more takeoffs and landings than the airport was designed for. Reduce the takeoffs and landings back to the correct safety levels, and it will be a forcing function to use Long Beach, Ontario, John Wayne and maybe even the empty runways at closed Air Force bases. – JOHN ROEHRIG San Pedro160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Norm Authier reminded us that the badly needed repairs to our overspending habits were all defeated by the liberal special interests and now the bill is due. Don’t blame Arnie; he came within an inch of sacrificing his own career to try and save us, and Tom Elias got what he asked for: more spending with no balanced budget in sight. Increasing entitlements that go on forever when we get a few extra bucks in the good month is just plain bad fiscal management. Regarding the letters by Joe Saraceno and Jim Overstreet: They are both exactly on target. Nuclear, coal, oil and “dirty diesel” power opponents got their wishes granted when no permits were issued to build or rebuild generators for many years, and we had no electricity to show for it.

So why are they so self-sufficient and we are still buying foreign oil with so much in our back yard? There is hope, guys; GE and others have applied for permits to build new reactors that take less time to construct (read 14 years instead of 20, so don’t breathe easy yet), and the states are seeing the nuclear light as the only way to keep them lit. “Know nukes” is making a catch-phrase comeback – just way too slowly. – BOB BURCHETT Rancho Palos Verdes RPV needs investigation
Sweden had gone into the final day of Group F action sitting third, but ended it in top spot after strikes from Ludwig Augustinsson and Andreas Granqvist and an own goal from Edson Alvarez earned them a comfortable win over Mexico.All the goals came after the break, with the opener arriving just five minutes into the second half; full-back Ludwig Augustinsson showing great composure to convert a cross at the back post to claim his first international goal.Augustinsson threatened a second soon after, firing just over, before Sweden lost the influential Seb Larsson to injury.But Larsson’s withdrawal did not affect the Swedes and, with an hour on the clock, they were gifted the chance to double their lead when Hector Moreno brought down Marcus Berg in the box with a rash challenge.A penalty was rightly awarded and Granqvist did not waste his chance from 12 yards, confidently striking the ball into the top left-hand corner and beyond Guillermo Ochoa’s desperate reach to score his second spot-kick of this World Cup. Mexico and Sweden both reached the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup as reigning champions Germany sensationally crashed out.Mexico were beaten 3-0 by Sweden in their final Group F match, but South Korea’s shock 2-0 triumph over Germany meant that they advanced to the knockout stages along with their victors. Sweden are into the last 16 of the World Cup 4 Andreas Granqvist scores from the spot for Sweden against Mexico Mexico were stunned – fearing their World Cup dream was over – and it got worse as Sweden extended their advantage with 16 minutes left in comical fashion.Edson Alvarez fluffed an attempted clearance from a long throw and the ball bounced off the Mexico defender and into his own net, past a helpless Ochoa.Mexico were now relying on the other Group F match going in their favour, as a Germany win over South Korea would have ended their last 16 hopes.And, thankfully for Juan Carlos Osorio’s side, South Korea duly did the business, scoring two late goals to send the reigning world champions sensationally crashing out of the tournament.

THE Euro crisis may have massive implications for us all, but shopkeepers in Co Donegal could be about to turn the tide in the store wars with the North…thanks to the strong pound.Last night as money markets closed in Europe, the pound was worth €1.17, its highest in months (making the euro worth 85.4p).With six weeks to Christmas that could stop the flow of shoppers going across the Border – and actually bring shoppers back into Donegal from Derry, Tyrone and Fermanagh. Letterkenny in particular – with its extensive retail parks – could benefit most as the euro continues to slide against sterling.The €1.20 rate – though it hasn’t reached that point yet – is psychologically important for shoppers from the North.At one stage yesterday it was headed for €1.18, before falling back again in a volatile market.Many shops are enticing northern shoppers south by offering the €1.20 exchange rate, including Hegartys in Buncrana. © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content and Ideas including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com BOOST FOR DONEGAL SHOPS AS POUND HEADS FOR CRITICAL €1.20 MARK was last modified: November 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
A VICTIM of paedophile priest Father Eugene Greene today spoke out about a huge cloud of suspicion over west Donegal – the public cash collection for the jailed cleric.As much as €50,000 was collected by parishoners in Annagry and the surrounding areas when Greene was released in 2008.Today one victim told donegaldaily.com: “It said a lot about some people that they went around collecting money for a man who actually pleaded guilty to raping me and many others. “I remember when I heard about this for the first time; I thought it was a sick joke. But then I was told that it had happened and I felt physically sick.“I don’t understand the mentality of these people….I don’t understand how anyone could hand over money so that an evil b****** like this could live in comfort after getting out of jail.”Greene has been in the headlines this week as some of his victims spoke out about the attacks on them.The BBC documentary has also put huge pressure on Cardinal Sean Brady over his handling of sex abuse claims against pervert priest Father Brendan Smyth. It’s understood Cardinal Brady could offer his resignation this weekend.The Greene cash collection however still hurts many of his victims.“It was like being raped all over again,” said the victim who spoke to donegaldaily.com.“The same people who collected money for Greene shunned his victims. We got not a cent in money, though we never wanted that, and we got not a single breath of comfort or apology. It is an eternal shame on these people.” ‘CASH COLLECTION FOR PAEDOPHILE PRIEST WAS LIKE BEING RAPED ALL OVER AGAIN’ – VICTIM was last modified: May 3rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:’CASH COLLECTION FOR PAEDOPHILE PRIEST WAS LIKE BEING RAPED ALL OVER AGAIN’ – VICTIMEUGENE GREENE
FONTANA — Dan Wheldon and Danica Patrick have been the featured drivers throughout the Indy Racing League season, so it’s only appropriate the same two remain in the spotlight heading into the season finale at California Speedway. Wheldon, who won the Indianapolis 500 and already has wrapped up the season championship, still has a few more records in sight, while rookie sensation Patrick is still looking for her first win. Patrick began the season as a virtual unknown and quickly moved into the public eye with some solid driving. Then she became a household name by nearly winning the pole and the race at Indy, sparking a rage called “Danica Mania.” It didn’t hurt her image when she won three poles after her Indy performance, but the next obvious step for the 23-year-old racer was to win, and that hasn’t happened. “The most magical and perfect way to end this season would be to win,” Patrick said. And it could happen. California’s wide, fast oval is just the kind of track where Patrick can shine. “California Speedway is the kind of track where we have run well this season,” she said. “Certainly, if you go back over the years, Fontana is one of the tracks where Rahal Letterman Racing has done extremely well. “I feel pretty confident coming into this weekend. Our last oval race at Chicagoland was our best of the season. I ran up front with the leaders, stayed in the lead pack and I was right there at the end. I said at the start of the year that I wanted to gain experience and use what I learned to improve on track. Chicago was an example of how far we have come this season.” And winning the last race of the season would built plenty of momentum heading into 2006. IRL NOTES: Franchitti’s pole win was his first pole of the season and only the second of his IRL career. The Scotsman had not qualified better than fourth in the first 16 events this season. … Travis Gregg won the pole for Sunday’s IRL Menard’s Infiniti Pro Series California 100 with a lap of 188.831 mph. … A.J. Foyt IV, who will leave the IRL after Sunday’s race to race a stock car in NASCAR, qualified 18th for Sunday’s race. … Sam Hornish Jr. will get a $20,000 bonus for capturing the Marlboro Pole Award. Hornish tied with Bryan Herta and Tomas Scheckter for the most poles this season with three, but wins the bonus by finishing higher in the points. … California Speedway president Gillian Zucker said Saturday she is open to discussions about bringing open-wheel racing back to the track in the future. The track and the IRL were unable to come to agreement on a race date for 2006 and the race was dropped from the schedule. “Obviously, we are big fans of open-wheel racing,” Zucker said. “The door is open for IRL to have conversations with us with regard to coming back to California Speedway. But, in my mind, it’s a business decision. We need to see what the sponsorship situation is going to be.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Patrick wound up fourth at 218.199, while Wheldon, who still has plenty of motivation to finish the season with a win, qualified seventh at 217.702. He already has set records for most wins in a season with six and has matched the mark for consecutive wins with three in a row. In Sunday’s Toyota Indy 400, the 27-year-old Englishman can add more records. Wheldon has led at least one lap in each of the 14 races this season. If he leads one lap on Sunday, he will break the record set in 2003 by Scott Dixon. The next record would be more difficult. Wheldon needs to lead 145 of the 200 laps to break the single-season mark of 889 set last season by Tony Kanaan. He is just $23,636 shy of Buddy Rice’s IRL record of $2,699,040 in season earnings, set last year. Wheldon already is assured of breaking that record with the $1 million check he will receive at Monday night’s awards ceremony as the 2005 champion. “I think California is going to be a really good race because obviously the championship has been decided, but second, third and fourth are up for grabs,” Wheldon said. If qualifying is any indication, it will be very competitive on Sunday. Dario Franchitti, Wheldon’s Andretti Green Racing teammate, won the pole with a lap of 219.398 mph, a time of 32.9 seconds. All 22 drivers in the field were separated by just over a second.

Prior to that, she ran the second-fastest time in the preliminary heats with a personal best time of 8.97.”Tori [Coombe] has been looking good all week at practice and with Mary [Young] being off this week, she had a chance to lead our hurdlers and she did just that with a personal best in the prelims,” Bennett added. “She executed everything right and the time showed that.” Kayla Giuliano (Lake In The Hills, Ill.) also recorded an indoor personal best in the 800 meters with a second-place time of 2:19.18 to lead three Bulldogs in the top 10 as she was followed by Danielle Griesbaum (Lake Villa, Ill.) and Meghan Kearney (Kansas City, Mo.) in third and ninth places, respectively.”Meghan [Kearney] gets the spotlight of the meet tonight,” Bennett said. “She got tripped up and fell half way through her 800-meter race. I think everybody watching would have been ok with her not finishing, but she got up and sprinted the rest of the race. That’s demonstrating the Bulldog Way and our team’s mindset. I could have not been more proud of her.”In the longer distances, freshmen Mykaela Cole (Urbandale, Iowa) and Morgan Garcia (Marion, Iowa), were fifth and eighth in the mile. Meanwhile in the 800 meters, the Bulldogs had three runners in the top 10 with senior George Webb (Morton Grove, Ill.) finishing third in 1:57.25 while junior Cory Erickson (Duluth, Minn.) was seventh with a personal best of 1:59.72.

Dominic Lombardi (Columbus, Ohio) was sixth in the event with a personal best of 8.44.”Overall, we had great performances from both the men and women,” Bennett said. “I couldn’t be more proud of them on how they competed from the first race to the last race.

We train with the mindset that we can compete against anybody in the country, and I think tonight Drake answered that challenge.” In the jumps, Taryn Rolle (Nassau, The Bahamas) continued to perform well by winning the women’s triple jump with a mark of 40-8.25 that was just 1.25 inches off of her personal best, which ranks second all-time in the Drake record books.

Jason Quigley in sensational condition as he weighs-in ahead of his fight with Tolutomi Agunbiade.Jason Quigley is in phenomenal condition ahead of his fight against Tolutomi Agunbiade in California later tonight.Quigley weighed-in ahead of the bout with the Texan fighter who has had a mixed start to his professional career.Agunbiade has won two and lost two in his four professional contests so far. He wasn’t named as his opponent until the weigh-in and is somewhat of an unknown entity.However, Quigley says that not knowing his opponent doesn’t effect him and credits his top-class background in the amateur game as the reason for this.Quigley told Sky Sports, “That’s the great thing about coming from such a high-class amateur background, I prepare in the gym and I let my opponent worry about me.“If there’s any footage on my opponent then great, I’ll look at their weak spots to see what I can capitalise on, but if not I’ll get in there and let them worry about me. “I’ll do my plan, I’ll do what I’m good at. I’m not worried who I come up against. I know that I train hard every day.”The coverage of Quigley’s card begins at 3am Irish time and the Ballybofey boxer is expected to fight at around 4am.We wish Quigley as looks to make it FIVE wins from FIVE, another KO would be welcomed. 🙂 QUIGLEY IN SENSATIONAL CONDITION AS HE WEIGHS-IN AHEAD OF FIGHT IN CALIFORNIA was last modified: March 20th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:boxingCaliforniaJason QuigleynewsSportTexanUSAWeigh-in
