Texas Seven prison escapee’s conviction, death sentence should be tossed, judge says

  Texas Seven prison escapee’s conviction, death sentence should be tossed, judge says Texas Seven prison escapee Randy Halprin’s conviction and death sentence should be thrown out because the judge in his 2003 capital murder trial harbored anti-Semitic views, a state district judge recommended Monday. Judge Lela Mays’ recommendation comes about three years after the state’s highest criminal court, the Court of Criminal Appeals, halted Halprin’s scheduled execution and asked Mays to review the case. Halprin, who is Jewish, has argued he didn’t receive a fair trial because former State District Judge Vickers Cunningham was prejudiced against him. The state’s Court of Criminal Appeals will make the final decision.

Denver Broncos pass rusher Randy Gregory was initially suspended by the NFL for trading punches with Los Angeles Rams offensive lineman Oday Aboushi at the end of Sunday's game. But he was able to appeal and successfully had his punishment reduced.

Doubts emerge about key witness testimony to Jan. 6 committee

  Doubts emerge about key witness testimony to Jan. 6 committee The final report from the House select committee investigating last year’s Capitol riot is expected to release Thursday and will include some testimony that the panel found questionable, according to an executive summary of the report. The committee claims former President Donald Trump’s deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato made unreliable statements when he disputed previous testimony that the 76-year-old Trump tried to grab the wheel of the presidential SUV on Jan. 6, 2021 to join his supporters outside the Capitol The panel wrote that it “has significant concerns about the credibility” of Ornato’s testimony.

According to Mike Klis, part of Gregory's appeal included explaining the reason he got so frustrated. Per the report, Gregory said he and his teammates knew that a loss might result in head coach Nathaniel Hackett getting fired - and he was frustrated because he wants to win for him.

Whether or not the appeals board factored that explanation into overturning the suspension and reducing the punishment to a fine, it clearly didn't hurt his case. Ultimately, his passion didn't help Hackett either.

The Broncos fired Hackett on Monday following their 11th loss of the season. He was axed without even getting to finish his first year at the helm.

One unit that has mostly been doing the heavy lifting for the Broncos this season is the defense. In their first nine games they allowed more than 20 points only once.

Unfortunately, having the league's last-ranked offense made the strength of the defense moot. They've scored more than 16 points only four times all season. They're 2-9 in those games.

Randy Gregory may not have a future in Denver with the new regime that's set to come in next season.

But he still shouldn't have let things get to the point of throwing punches.
