Former Lions receiver Titus Young sentenced to four years in prison

  Former Lions receiver Titus Young sentenced to four years in prison Former Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been sentenced to four years in prison in a 2016 assault case. Young, 27, was arrested in January 2016 for allegedly participating in a street fight in Los Angeles. He pleaded no contest to a battery charge and sentenced to four years in a California prison. Young was a promising young player for Detroit in 2011 and 2012 but on-field and off-field concerns cut his career short. He was involved in multiple on-field skirmishes with opponents and purposefully disobeyed coaches' instructions during a 2012 game against the Packers before getting into an altercation with his position coach. • From 2013: Where is Titus Young? Young was released by the Lions in February 2013 and claimed by the Rams on waivers, though he was released again less than two weeks later. Young's legal troubles began in May 2013, when he was arrested three times in five days, including twice in the same day. This article was originally published on SI.

Aaron Hernandez had gang ties in prison?

  Aaron Hernandez had gang ties in prison? There are many questions surrounding the unexpected death of Aaron Hernandez, and most of them will likely go unanswered. One of those questions involves whether or not Hernandez was affiliated with a gang while in prison, and it’s one that has come up many times since he was taken into custody for the murder of Odin Lloyd. While it’s unclear if Hernandez belonged to a gang at the maximum security prison he was being held at in Shirley, Mass., one source told the Boston Globe that the former New England Patriot was “insecure” and stayed close to gang members. A person with direct knowledge who spoke on condition of anonymity said that while many observers of Hernandez’s recent trial remarked on his stoic demeanor, within prison walls he was insecure and clung to gang members for approval. He was not aloof with other inmates, this person said. Instead, he appeared eager to be “one of the boys.” He often sat and laughed or played basketball with gang members. The same source told the Globe that Hernandez was placed on suicide watch after he was convicted in 2015 of killing Lloyd, but he must have been taken off at some point. Prison officials said Wednesday that Hernandez had given no indication he intended to harm himself. Jail officials inspected Hernandez for tattoos that would indicate he was affiliated with gangs as soon as he was sentenced, but they didn’t find anything. However, the 27-year-old later got a tattoo that seemed to indicate he was associated with the Bloods. Hernandez’s attorney insists his client would not take his own life, and he is launching an investigation to look into the death further.

Louie, who lived in Vancouver, was killed in Penticton while visiting friends and family for the holidays in January 2015.

She died after being bludgeoned with a crowbar 26 times. During the trial, Robotti admitted to delivering the blows that killed Louie, saying that an argument had turned violent.

Robotti's lawyer maintained their client had been acting in self defence.

During the trial, court heard that tensions between the two women — centred mostly around the care of Louie's three-year-old son — were high.

After the sentencing on Tuesday, Louie's uncle said life in prison wasn't enough.

"To me, I guess this is a lesson in 'murder 101': Cover your tracks, go with a lawyer to turn yourself in and get as light a sentence as possible," Dan Wilson said.

Wilson said his family is now focusing on caring for Louie's son.

In court, the 67-year-old apologized for the pain she brought Louie's family and said she wished things had ended differently.
