Phillies Herrera accepts suspension for rest of season

NEW YORK (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odúbel Herrera has accepted a suspension for the rest of the season under Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy. The commissioner's office announced his decision Friday, two days after domestic assault charges against Herrera in Atlantic City, New Jersey, were dismissed. He had been charged with simple assault and knowingly causing bodily injury stemming from an incident on May 27 at the Golden Nugget Casino. The woman, his girlfriend, declined to press charges. Herrera accepted a suspension that would include any postseason games. The unpaid suspension is retroactive to June 24 and covers 85 games. He will lose $2,634,409 of his $5 million salary, the amount due over the final 98 days of the 186-day regular season. He is in the third year of a $30.5 million, five-year contract and is due to make $7 million next season and $10 million in 2021. Philadelphia has club options for 2022 and '23. An All-Star center fielder in 2016, Herrera hit .222 with one home run and 16 RBIs in 39 games this season. He missed time in April with a hamstring injury......»»

Prosecutors recommend closing rape case against Neymar

By Mauricio Savarese, Associated Press SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian prosecutors recommended Thursday that the investigation of soccer star Neymar on a rape allegation be closed, saying there is a lack of evidence. Sao Paulo state prosecutors Flávia Merlini and Estefânia Paulin said they agree with a police decision of July 30 not to bring charges. A judge will make the final decision. Brazilian model Najila Trindade went to Sao Paulo police to accuse Neymar of raping her at a Paris hotel in May. No complaint was filed with French police. The Associated Press doesn't name alleged sexual assault victims unless they make their identities public, which Trindade did in several interviews. Neymar denied the accusation and said their relations were consensual. He is in France, where he plays for Paris Saint-Germain. "We decided in favor of the closing of the case because there is no sufficient evidence," Merlini said at a news conference. "That doesn't mean acquittal yet. There is still a possibility that the judge reopens the probe." There is no deadline for a judge to rule. Few cases in Brazil are reopened after police and prosecutors suggest their closing. Paulin said the model did not produce any of the evidence she claimed she had, including a video that allegedly proved the player attacked her. "The police investigator asked her to plug her phone to a computer so she could see the video, but she (Trindade) didn't want to do that. She also refused to hand over her phone, and later she said it had been stolen," Paulin said. The prosecutor said Trindade's only injury was to a finger. "The medical report of a private doctor introduced by the victim did not show an injury that proved she was raped," Paulin said. "The slaps and the redness (on Trindade's skin) happened for the satisfaction of both parties." Representatives for Neymar and Trindade did not respond to an AP request for comment on the conclusions of the Sao Paulo state prosecutors. Sao Paulo police are still investigating whether Trindade falsely reported a rape. Police interviewed Trindade three times about her claims. Twelve other people were also questioned. Neymar himself was heard for about five hours in mid-June. Neymar, meanwhile, is still under investigation in a cybercrime case connected to Trindade's allegations. After the model offered the rape charges, he posted images and messages of the accuser without her authorization in his social media channels, in possible violation of her online privacy. The player, who also testified in that investigation in Rio de Janeiro, said the images were posted by his press team......»»

Brazilian police dismiss rape claim against Neymar

By Mauricio Savarese, Associated Press SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian police said Tuesday they have decided there are no grounds to bring rape charges against soccer star Neymar. And they're investigating whether his accuser filed a false report. "We checked all the possibilities. I did not see enough elements to indict," Sao Paulo police investigator Juliana Lopes Bussacos said in a press conference. She also rejected possible assault charges. Bussacos' decision could be revised by prosecutors within 15 days. Brazilian model Najila Trindade accused the 27-year-old forward of raping her in a Paris hotel in May. He denied the accusation and said their relations were consensual. Bussacos interviewed Trindade three times about her claims. She also said 12 other people were also questioned. Neymar himself heard for about five hours in mid-June. Police also inspected cellphones, a tablet of Trindade's son and medical reports offered by the accuser. The model filed her complaint in Sao Paulo on May 31, alleging Neymar raped her earlier in the month in Paris. No complaint was filed with French police. Her case has been complicated by the fact three of her attorneys withdrew from the case after the complaint was filed. Bussacos did not detail what led her to the conclusions because the probe is still under secrecy rules. "The whole set of evidence led me not to indict," the investigator said. Neymar's spokeswoman Day Crespo told The Associated Press the player will not make comments for now. The player is currently in a preseason tour of Asia with his club, Paris Saint-Germain. Cosme Araújo, an attorney for Trindade, told journalists the police conclusions are "absurd" and insisted Bussacos should have waited for security camera video from the Paris hotel. The investigator said those images were not essential to her investigation. Sao Paulo police director Albano David Fernandes said the investigators will look into whether Trindade falsely reported a rape, based on Bussaco's findings. Investigator Monique Lima said it would be premature to accuse Trindade of any crime. "That investigation is also under secrecy," Lima said. "We will indict anyone who has acted in bad faith. We will hear those involved to see if there was a slanderous accusation or a false report." Trindade's attorney did not comment on the investigation of his client's claims. The AP doesn't name alleged sexual assault victims unless they make their identities public, which Trindade did in several interviews......»»
