Versailles man found guilty of several drug related crimes

first_imgVersailles, IN—Friday,  Gabriel “Eddie” Seitz, 29-years-old, of Versailles, IN, was found guilty as charged of Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Possession of a Syringe, Possession of Marijuana, a Class B Misdemeanor, and Possession of Paraphernalia, a Class C Misdemeanor following a three-day jury trial in Ripley County Superior Court.  Seitz will be sentenced on December 3, 2019, by Judge Jeffrey Sharp with a range of imprisonment from 1 year to 5 3/4 years total for all charges.  Seitz’s charges stem from law enforcement’s discovery of nearly five grams of crystal methamphetamine in a truck bed Seitz was standing next to and a syringe located in a bag belonging to Seitz at a residence located in Versailles. According to Prosecutor Ric Hertel, at trial, the State called officers from the Indiana State Police and Versailles Police Department as witnesses.  The officers explained that they arrived at a residence just south of Pangburn Park in Versailles, IN in an attempt to locate a wanted individual.  While surveilling the residence in question, the officers observed numerous individuals entering and exiting the converted garage area of the residence.  After obtaining a search warrant, the officers entered the residence where methamphetamine, heroin, numerous controlled substances, syringes, and drug paraphernalia were located.  Also located in the garage area was a suitcase belonging to Seitz that contained a syringe and a spoon that had been used to assist in the injection of methamphetamine. The officers further testified that while they were at the house, a truck pulled into the driveway where Seitz was the passenger.  When officers exited the house and detained Seitz, he was standing next to the truck bed of the truck.  After a search of the truck, officers located nearly five grams of methamphetamine in the truck bed. The State also called two forensic scientists from the Indiana State Police Laboratory to discuss the forensic evidence located in the case.  The first scientist was able to confirm that the substance located by the officers was methamphetamine.  The second scientist testified that she discovered Seitz’s DNA on the bag of methamphetamine located in the truck bed.    At trial, the State of Indiana was represented by Chief Deputy Prosecutor Shane A. Tucker.  Tucker wanted to compliment the Indiana State Police and their laboratory for their dedication to this case and their thorough investigation.  Further, Tucker wanted to thank the jury for their attentiveness to the evidence throughout this trial.  Regarding the case, Prosecutor Ric Hertel stated, “Drugs continue to be a significant issue that affects nearly every facet of our community.  My office will continue to address our county’s drug problem head-on.  We’re encouraged with the jury’s finding of guilt on all counts.”last_img read more

Syracuse men’s basketball roundtable: Everything to know before the ACC tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (19-12, 8-10 Atlantic Coast) plays a rubber match with Wake Forest (11-19, 4-14) on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Barclays Center in the first round of the ACC tournament. Syracuse has historically struggled in Brooklyn, but will need to exorcise its demons and likely go on a mini run if it hopes to make the NCAA Tournament.Our beat writers take on three questions surrounding the Orange ahead of the conference tournament.Syracuse split with Wake Forest during the regular season. What does Syracuse need to do to fend off a pesky Demon Deacons team?Matthew Gutierrez: First, overcome whatever sort of ghosts lie under the Barclays Center floor that have doomed Syracuse, because SU has lost four in a row at that place. Fellow beat writer Tomer Langer, a native of the area, may know the answer.Aside from that, all the Orange really has to do is stick to its identity, which was on full display Saturday in its first win against a ranked opponent this season, as junior point guard Frank Howard pointed out. That’s strong defense — remember WFU’s six-straight 3-pointers? — and reliance on the big three scorers.Any contributions Marek Dolezaj can bring, and any sort of job players can do to minimize turnovers, are plusses. It’s not necessary a formula to beat quality teams, but it’s a way to scrape by.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSam Fortier: Erase Bryant Crawford. Wake Forest goes as their do-it-all guard does, and if Syracuse’s defense prevents him from draining three corner 3s down the stretch — as he did in WFU’s Jan. 3 win — than the Orange should be fine. He greases the wheels, assisting on nearly one-third of his team’s buckets, per, and is a serviceable shooter from all over the floor.SU’s thin frontcourt should be worrisome against 7-foot-1, 280-pound big man Doral Moore, but as long as the Orange keeps him off the boards they should be OK. So, OK, there’s a lot to do to beat Wake Forest in a venue it’s faced some mighty struggles in, but Syracuse should — should — be able to do it.Tomer Langer: Contain Doral Moore on the inside and hope he doesn’t get the ball too much. Moore is fairly athletic and posed some issues for the sometimes slow-footed Paschal Chukwu on the inside the last time these two teams matched up. SU head coach Jim Boeheim said after the Boston College loss last week that Chukwu is playing on sore knees. And while Syracuse’s center did have a nice double-block sequence against Clemson on Saturday, there were multiple times the Tigers got easy buckets on the inside.A lot of the focus will be on Wake Forest’s 3-point shooting after the Demon Deacons hung around in Syracuse back in mid-February by raining from deep. But if SU stretches the zone too far out, Moore can cause matchup issues in an area in which the Orange is depleted.With games on consecutive days throughout the ACC Tournament, will SU’s short bench play a factor?M.G.: You’d like to think so. But because Syracuse didn’t play a preseason tournament against formidable opponents, we don’t really know the answer. Syracuse had little rest between its home loss to No. 1 Virginia and its impressive win at Louisville, so it’s possible that SU can play when tested on short rest. Where it would get murky is if SU must play three or four in a row. Syracuse played three games in five days back in November, but that was in the Carrier Dome versus, you know, teams that visit the Carrier Dome in November.S.F.: Yes. Jim Boeheim’s strategy, which to his credit has seemed to work this season, is that media timeouts provide players adequate rest to get through a game without fatigued legs dooming his team at the end. That works for single games. Now, the ACC tournament schedule foists an untenable workload on Syracuse players who have shouldered heavy burdens this season already, timeouts be damned.Playing nearly 40 minutes a night is tiring, freshman forward Oshae Brissett admitted Saturday, but he hits the ice baths hard in between games to get himself right in the approximately two- to four-day rests he usually has. But there’s none of that now. While a short bench doesn’t guarantee a loss or anything that drastic, it’s going to impact this team and tire them out more than normal.T.L.: Conceivably, yes. I just think it’s a bit overstated how much. SU’s short bench has played a factor all year, even when there’s been rest in between the games, because if guys aren’t on their game, Boeheim has no one else to put in. And, for any team, it would be hard to have to play on the first day and win five-straight games to secure the ACC Tournament crown.But the Orange is used to its playing style, and I don’t think the back-to-back days element will be too different than it is for other teams, because teams tend to ride their star players and shorten the bench in important games, anyway.How many games does Syracuse need to win to make the NCAA Tournament?M.G.: The magic number here might be three. Two wins would probably be attractive in the eyes of the Selection Committee, but that still puts Syracuse in cloudy bubble territory, I think, while three wins this week in Brooklyn punches Syracuse’s ticket to the Big Dance. Three wins would prove that Syracuse can play away from home consistently, beat one or two quadrant one teams, and withstand the rigors of one of the toughest conference tournaments in college hoops.That, of course, means big games from the big three every night and a fourth scorer in Dolezaj. Without the latter, the NIT may be Syracuse’s final destination.S.F.: Two. If Syracuse beats Wake Forest, that impresses no one. But beating a well-rested, top-10 team on the second night of a back-to-back? That would automatically replace Clemson as the Orange’s marquee win of the season and get some double takes from the Selection Committee.No matter what, this won’t be an anxiety-free process. Syracuse fans should intently watch other bubble teams like UCLA, Marquette, Alabama, Baylor, Oklahoma State and, yes, Mike Hopkins-led Washington. Two wins won’t inspire the most confidence, but it’ll get the Orange into the NCAA Tournament in the same way an action hero always slides underneath a heavy, descending door just in time.T.L.: Can I say 2.5? It’s definitely more than one and it really depends on what other bubble teams do as well. Sam is right in saying that if SU beats Wake Forest and then goes on to beat UNC, it would be the marquee win of the season. That being said, picking up really your only marquee win of the season in March might not be enough to sway a committee that looks at a team’s body of work and doesn’t put as much stock into recency. Two wins would give the Orange a jolt, and I think three wins would assure a spot. Comments Published on March 5, 2018 at 10:08 pmlast_img read more

These three Warriors face more pressure with DeMarcus Cousins out

first_imgAn MRI exam Tuesday morning in the Bay Area showed that he suffered a torn left quadriceps, the team confirmed.DeMarcus Cousins Injury Update:— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) April 16, 2019The Warriors fear he will miss the rest of the postseason, but are holding out faint hope he may be able to return for the NBA Finals, according to Yahoo Sports. Related News Now what?DeMarcus Cousins left Game 2 of the Warriors’ first-round NBA playoff series against the Clippers with a thigh injury. There’s a couple of assumptions to unpack there: First, that Cousins could return from a torn quad, and, second, that the Warriors can maneuver through a loaded Western Conference with a center-by-committee approach.Here are the players who, beginning with Game 3 on Thursday in Los Angeles, will have to shoulder the load. (And maybe it was foreshadowing that one of the three, Andrew Bogut, was icing a shoulder after Monday’s loss.)1. Andrew BogutBogut, 34, averaged 11.4 points, 11.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.7 blocked shots in Australia’s NBL, to earn MVP and Defensive Player of the Year honors, before rejoining the Warriors last month.In 16 1/2 minutes Monday (Cousins went out in the first quarter), Bogut had nine rebounds but only three points.So …“Yeah, obviously there will be more minutes,” Bogut said (via the San Francisco Chronicle). “It’ll still be matchup-dependent, but I anticipate probably starting games, playing the first (handful of) minutes and then coming out.”“Hopefully (Cousins’ injury) is not too serious. It didn’t look good.”2. Kevon LooneyAs the Clippers push tempo with drive-and-dish Montrezl Harrell and pick-and-roll partner Lou Williams off the bench, Looney is the next player in line at center. The good news: Typically a key only on defense, he has been one of the most effective players in the series.He had a career-best 19 points on 6-of-6 shooting from the field and 7-of-8 free-throw shooting Monday, this only a game after posting a remarkable plus-30 plus-minus rating in 17 minutes of Game 1. Instead of being a forgotten fifth option on the offensive end Monday, he was actively looking for his shot in Cousins’ absence.“I’ll probably get a little more time, but I’ll just bring the energy and try to be a little more aggressive when I get the ball down in the paint,” Looney said. “(Cousins) is a force down in the paint, and I’ll just keep going with what I’ve been doing and things will work out for me.”3. Draymond GreenJordan Bell managed to get yelled at by two teammates in only 3 1/2 minutes Monday, so he’s not a trusted option. Damian Jones is still recovering from pectoral surgery, so that leaves … Green. DeMarcus Cousins injury update: Warriors big man’s MRI reveals torn quad As the Chronicle notes, he thrives in a back-row defensive role and in the ensuing increased tempo of the game when the Warriors go small. But … Green is not the low-post scorer Cousins is and Looney has looked like.Green didn’t talk to reporters after the Game 2 debacle, but teammates who did know two things: It will be a mix-and-match effort in the middle moving forward, not just in this series but also beyond if the Warriors advance.”We’ll miss (Cousins’) low-post dominance, of course,” guard Klay Thompson said. “We’ll miss his screen setting and his energy out there. I’m hoping for a speedy recovery, because we really need him, if we want to make this run.”last_img read more

English eyes on Griezmann for crunch Chelsea clash

first_img“The English press said they were willing to pay €100 million, which is my release clause.“I was not going to waste time denying it. No matter how much I repeat that I am delighted at Atletico, that I have a great coach and great teammates, they ask me regularly about my future.“At Real Sociedad I realised I had reached a moment where I had to move to keep progressing, that has not happened at Atletico Madrid. Although, again, I rule nothing out.”– Part of the family –The backlash to Griezmann’s public comments peaked when he was jeered off as he was substituted during a goalless Madrid derby two weeks ago.At the time Griezmann was on a barren run of eight games without a goal and, with no one else offering reliable back-up, Atletico’s Champions League campaign stalled with defeat to Chelsea and back-to-back draws with Azerbaijanis Qarabag.“I am with him to the death,” insisted Simeone back then before adding “as long as he is in my family”.All has been forgiven, if not forgotten, in the past 10 days as a stunning acrobatic opener in a 2-0 win over Roma got Griezmann back among the goals and Atletico winning again.Having won just two and scored seven goals in their previous 10 matches, Atletico have won four in a row, netting an average of three goals a game.After Griezmann’s fourth in three games with a late winner against his former side Sociedad on Saturday, he was grappled in a bear hug by Simeone that showed his was fully back in the fold.One of the best nights in Simeone’s glorious six years at the helm in Madrid came at Stamford Bridge in 2014, when he outwitted Jose Mourinho in a 3-1 win that took his side to the first of their two recent Champions League finals.Should they fail to replicate that performance against Conte’s men on Tuesday and not get a helping hand from Qarabag it could be the beginning of a long goodbye for star man Griezmann.Share on: WhatsApp The financial blow an early exit would bring to Atletico, who moved into the new 310 million euro ($369 million) Wanda Metropolitano stadium earlier this season, could precipitate Griezmann’s departure from the Spanish capital.But for his loyalty to Atletico and in particular coach Diego Simeone, Griezmann could have already been out the door last summer.A number of sides, led by Manchester United, seemed willing to meet his 100 million euro buyout clause, but when Atletico’s appeal against a transfer ban was rejected in June Griezmann agreed to stay on.Griezmann admitted at the time it would have been “dirty” to walk out on Atletico when they couldn’t replace him since it is they who propelled him into the European football elite after signing him from Real Sociedad in 2014.That loyalty hasn’t been wholly rewarded however, with many Atletico fans unhappy at Griezmann’s frequent flirting with other sides, including La Liga rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona, often via the French press.“For months now my name has come out linked with Manchester United,” Griezmann wrote in his newly-released autobiography ‘Behind the Smile’. Atletico Madrid’s super star Antoine GriezmannMadrid, Spain | AFP | As a red-hot Antoine Griezmann hopes to keep Atletico Madrid’s faint Champions League hopes alive at Stamford Bridge, the stage is also set for the Frenchman to showcase his talents to a host of Premier League suitors.Atletico need to beat Chelsea in London on Tuesday and hope Roma don’t beat Champions League debutants Qarabag in the Italian capital if they are to make the last 16 for a fifth consecutive season.last_img read more

Lacazette defends Emery, hopes for post-break revival

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | French striker Alexandre Lacazette has leaped to the defence of under-fire Arsenal manager Unai Emery saying fans were being fickle in criticising him after not praising him when they were on a good run last season.The pressure on the 48-year-old Spaniard grew with a 2-0 defeat by Leicester on Saturday, leaving the Gunners with just one win in their last six Premier League games and eight points off fourth place and a Champions League qualification spot.Emery has also had to deal with the fallout from Granit Xhaka’s emotional outburst towards supporters when he was substituted against Crystal Palace a fortnight ago. The Spaniard eventually stripped the Swiss international of the captaincy.Lacazette, though, said while the players’ confidence had dipped the present international break gives them a chance to recharge their batteries ahead of their game at home to struggling Southampton on November 24.“Last season when we were unbeaten in 20 games in a row nobody said anything about the coach or manager,” said Lacazette. “We miss confidence and we need the international break.“I hope we are going to come back well. We want to be top four, of course.“Now we are nine points behind Chelsea and Leicester and it is going to be hard, but everything is possible in football.” FILE PHOTO: Unai Emerycenter_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Dimestore Fishermen TV series featuring Nelson airs Friday and Saturday

first_imgDimestore Fishermen is an outdoor fishing TV show that focuses on more than just fishing.Show creator Jim Hoey brought his team to the Heritage City on the invitation of Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures Fishing Charters to bring to the rest of North America what Nelsonites have known for years.”We try to focus on the cultural, historical and recreational aspects of communities we visit as much as the actual fishing,” Hoey, in his 12th season as host of Dimestore Fisherman, said during an interview with The Nelson Daily in the fall.“So moving around Nelson, all of Nelson’s natural character came out. We had the opportunity to have a special guest on the water … Mayor John Dooley is a great ambassador of this community.” And several Nelsonites stepped up and gave the crew the character and the natural beauty of the city from people who have lived here their whole lives, added Hoey, the father of three wonderful children. The crew fished on Kootenay Lake for four days in late October, obtaining more than enough footage of the best of what Kootenay Lake has to offer in the way of great fish. All fish caught were released.“(Jim Hoey and) the crew were very impressed with what they saw and they were definitely treated to an amazing experience,” said Reed, who began courting Hoey in March. “I think we highlighted our community in a very positive way and it will reflect in the final product of the TV episode.” Nelson will be showcased once again on television, this time as part of the Dimestore Fishermen series appearing on the World Fishing Network (WFN) Friday.The episode shot on Kootenay Lake in the fall of 2011 is on Channel 152 on Shaw TV. Airtimes are Friday at 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Saturday 6 a.m. All ties PDT.last_img read more
