  • Serena Williams Refuses to Be Silent About Police Brutality

    When Serena Williams recently asked her 18-year-old nephew to drive her to her meetings, she thought she was being safe—after all, she had work to do on her phone.

In a chilling Facebook status posted Tuesday afternoon, Williams illustrated the panic that flooded her body when she saw the police car. "...I remembered that horrible video of the woman in the car when a cop shot her boyfriend," she wrote in the status. "All of this went through my mind in a matter of seconds. I even regretted not driving myself. I would never forgive myself if something happened to my nephew. He's so innocent. So were all 'the others.'" Williams

  • Disbarred lawyer pleads guilty in kidnap once called a hoax

    Matthew Muller pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Sacramento, acknowledging he used computer-generated voices, blackened swim goggles, liquid sleeping medication and numerous props in the abduction of Denise Huskins last year from the Vallejo home she shared with boyfriend Aaron Quinn. Under the plea deal, federal prosecutors agreed to seek no more than 40 years in prison, but Muller's attorney, Thomas Johnson, said he fears U.S. District Judge Troy Nunley will impose a life term when Muller is sentenced on Jan. 19. During the kidnapping Muller put blackened swim goggles over the eyes of Huskins and Quinn and headphones over their ears to play a recorded warning that Huskins' face would be cut or she would be hurt with an electric shock if they didn't comply, according to court documents.

    The biggest and most obvious of these, this week at least, is Jacob Trouba, whose agent recently revealed a trade request made back in May.
