The 24-cell jail, which is privately run, was Jaramillo’s second choice. He will have to pay a fee of $80 per day to stay in the facility, officials said. He will be one of several inmates in an eight- to 10-man cell and required to participate in routine chores such as sweeping floors and making beds, authorities said. Jaramillo was indicted in 2005 on charges of taking $25,000 in bribes from a businessman to help promote a crime-fighting Laser device that purported to stop cars cold during high-speed pursuits. He was also accused of using resources in the Sheriff’s Department to help sell the product. Prosecutors originally charged Jaramillo with a total of 11 felony counts. If convicted on all counts he could have done 13 years in state prison, officials said. As part of a plea agreement that resulted in Jaramillo’s checking into the Montebello jail, prosecutors dismissed nine of the counts. Jaramillo, once considered a potential successor to Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona, was fired in 2004. Wire reports contributed to this story.

Man Utd captain Ashley Young: A deserved winby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United captain Ashley Young was pleased with victory over Leicester City.United earned a 1-0 win at Old Trafford yesterday.”When you play as a defender, you want to keep a clean sheet and hope the boys up the top can go and get the goals,” said Young.”On days you’re not going to play well and you’re going to win games. On days you’re going to play well and not win games.”There’s going to be a balance and we just want to do the right things and keep applying ourselves the way we have this season.”I think we have been unfortunate, especially at Southampton the other week. I think it was unfortunate against Crystal Palace as well.”I think we’re very close [to getting it right]. It wasn’t a bad performance. I didn’t think it was a bad performance.”If we had gone on and got a second goal after we got the first then it would have been totally different.”But, like I say, we had to show that resilience and that grit and that determination not to concede a goal and we done that today.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Professor Stephen Vasciannie, says Jamaica has a comprehensive refugee policy, which incorporates International Human Rights standards, and provides a good framework for the treatment of asylum seekers in the country. He stated that the policy also provides a model that could be used in other CARICOM states. He was addressing participants in a seminar on International Refugee Law,hostedby the Committee on Juridical and Political Affairs of the Organization of American States (OAS) on Thursday, January 31, at the OAS headquarters in Washington DC.According to Ambassador Vasciannie, the policy, formulated in 2009, is based expressly on the 1951 Refugees Convention and the 1967 Protocol to the Refugees Convention. “The policy deals with three main issues – who is a refugee; what procedures should an asylum-seeker follow in seeking refugee status; and what rights do refugees have in Jamaica” he informed.It also takes into account, geopolitical and domestic political issues in neighbouring countries, as well as resource considerations. “But in the end, the policy affirms the centrality of law,” Ambassador Vasciannie noted.The Ambassador said that Jamaica and other Caribbean countries see themselves as operating within the mainstream of International Human Rights law, and value the opportunity to insert Caribbean perspectives in deliberations at the OAS. Among other presenters at the all-day seminar was Deputy Regional Representative of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Buit Kale. The event was chaired by Columbia’s Permanent Representative to the OAS, Ambassador Andres Gonzalez, and participants included Ambassadors and other OAS representatives, staff and interns.
Patrick Klein calls out a play from the sideline during an OSU basketball game. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsPatrick Klein didn’t quite get the introduction to basketball that he expected. He wished to become a walk-on player as an Ohio State student, but things changed quickly.“I left my dorm and my friends were wishing me luck,” Klein said. “I came back and said ‘Hey, I made it, but the women’s practice team.’”Even though the position was not what he had originally envisioned, Klein rolled with the punches and quickly began working his way up the ranks of women’s college basketball, recently leading to a promotion to associate head coach of the OSU women’s basketball team.By the time he graduated from OSU in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in business management, Klein — a native of Belpre, Ohio — served as a student manager for the women’s basketball team from 2004-2005.Upon earning his undergraduate degree, Klein stayed at OSU as a graduate assistant under former head coach Jim Foster from 2005-2007.Klein then moved on to the University of Illinois, where he was an assistant coach from 2008 to 2010. For the 2011-2012 season, he returned to OSU, where he spent the next five seasons as an assistant coach.“For them to make that job title for me, it was an honor,” Klein said.Although he is appreciative of the promotion, Klein has never been caught up with labels.“When you work with great people, it’s not about the titles,” Klein said. “It’s just about every day working together for that common goal.”Despite the new title, Klein’s duties for the team remain the same. He will continue to be a key contributor in the recruiting process, provide detailed analysis on OSU and its opponents and will continue to push his agenda of proving OSU has a top women’s college basketball program“One of the big things for us here is being the best, the absolute best at developing young people,” Klein said. “In order to be the best, you have to really have the opportunity to focus on the details every single day.”Coach Kevin McGuff has had Klein as an assistant coach in his first three years at OSU.“He’s done a great job since he’s been here,” McGuff said. “He’s really helped us develop the program.”Off the court, Klein has helped bring in several highly rated recruiting classes for the Buckeyes.“Really, he’s been impactful on all of the recruits that we have gotten here,” McGuff said. “He’s very much a people person and he’s got great organization skills.”Klein also helped aid the club’s scoring spike in the 2015-2016 season, when OSU scored 86 points per game to set a new school record.“I think it’s just trying to execute coach McGuff’s vision, it’s trying to play really fast and aggressive,” Klein said. “We have great players out there that play hard and create an environment where both defense and offense creates points.”Looking ahead to the upcoming campaign, Klein said he is excited to see this year’s group take the floor.“Not only from a talent standpoint, but just the chemistry and how our team has grown together. I think that makes us really special,” Klein said. “When we’re playing the schedule that we’re playing — South Carolina, Miami, UConn — these are teams that you have to be totally focused and you have to continue to be prepared. Everybody’s role is going to be important this year.”As for his coaching future, Klein isn’t in any rush to move on from his current role with the Buckeyes.“Any time that you can coach at your alma mater, it’s a really special thing.” Klein said. “I have one of the best jobs in women’s college basketball.”
OSU junior H-back Curtis Samuel (4) rushes upfield with his teammates during their game against Michigan on Nov. 26 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes won 30-27. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorJunior H-back Curtis Samuel has decided to enter the NFL draft, forgoing his final season at Ohio State. Samuel’s decision was arguably the most important one of any players who could have declared early.The news was first reported by Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports.com, then confirmed later by Samuel on Twitter.Samuel was the glue to OSU’s offense in 2016. The do-it-all running back/wide receiver was perhaps coach Urban Meyer’s closest replica of the production he witnessed from Percy Harvin at Florida. Samuel accumulated 771 rushing yards and 865 receiving yards with 15 total touchdowns.The Brooklyn, New York, native was the only player in the Football Bowl Subdivision with more than 700 yards both receiving and rushing.OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett will be without his top two targets, Samuel and Noah Brown, in 2017. The departure of Samuel could lead to a starting role for freshman running back Demario McCall, who provides a speedy threat both out of the backfield and on routes.Samuel is currently ranked as the fourth overall wide receiver and sixth best running back in this year’s NFL draft according to WalterFootball.com. He will most likely be a first or second round selection.#Gobucks pic.twitter.com/5U8guwNMn7— Curtis Samuel (@CurtisSamuel4__) January 9, 2017
Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa coaches his unit at a fall practice on Aug. 5. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorPASADENA, Calif. — Ryan Day is focused on the Rose Bowl. Although Day has not been shy in expressing his feelings towards taking the Ohio State head coaching job after his stint as offensive coordinator for the past two seasons under head coach Urban Meyer, the current offensive coordinator would not disclose the specifics of the position, the decisions he will make after he officially takes the job on Jan. 2. He has not disclosed information regarding his coaching staff for the 2019 season other than taking the interim tag off wide receivers coach Brian Hartline on Dec. 8. “Right now it’s all about winning this game,” Day said. “It’s on us right now. That’s where the focus is.” Offensive line coach Greg Studrawa is one of the position coaches seemingly in limbo, not knowing whether his contract will be retained when Day officially takes over. Studrawa has a similar story to many other coaches on the roster, including defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and linebackers coach Billy Davis. After leaving the offensive line coaching job at Maryland in 2015, Studrawa joined the Ohio State staff because of a close friend: Meyer. “I’m going to miss him, obviously, because we are friends,” Studrawa said. “I came back to coach for him and obviously that is a part of our relationship that I am going to miss, seeing him every day and doing those things.” Studrawa knows his job is in flux, something he said is part of the business. He said he has to focus on his current job: getting his offensive line ready for its Rose Bowl matchup with Washington on Tuesday. However, Studrawa said he has been given no indication that he would be losing his position after the leadership change from Day. He and Day have discussed plans for the future on the offensive line, significant plans that are vital for success of the line in 2019. “We’ve had discussions of when we get back, what is going to happen with the line, how are we going to get this thing moving forward,” Studrawa said. “Those things, we have talked about a plan with him being the boss.”And one of those plans has begun being implemented in bowl practice. If junior Michael Jordan returns to Ohio State for his final season of eligibility, he said Saturday he wants to return to left guard, the initial position he held with Ohio State and was an All-American for before moving to center. With Jordan back at his original position, Day and Studrawa told redshirt freshman Josh Myers he would be the leading candidate for the starting center position heading into the 2019 season. To Myers, it’s an honor to be considered for this position, following in the footsteps of who he considered to be elite guard-turned-centers: Jordan, Pat Elflein and Billy Price. As a converted center himself, Myers said it takes a level of experience, a level of confidence and vocal leadership to take charge of the position in the middle of the offensive line. Even though he may be the favorite for the position heading into 2019, he said job security is no guarantee. “It’s something I will still have to fight for,” Myers said. “I understand that it’s not going to be a position given to me. It’s an elite position with a lot of really good players that have been there in the past. It’s something I have to go win for myself. It’s not given and I understand that.” That is a recent history Studrawa was there for, molding Price, molding Elflein into two Rimington Award winners, two NFL-caliber centers after spending three years at guard. He helped Jordan, even though he is moving back to his original position next season, to have an All-American season in the middle. This was something Studrawa mentioned when talking about his own job security, talking about how Ohio State held a top-ranked offense and had All-Conference players on his line. Studrawa knows football is a business. He knows that it’s Day’s decision to make. But, at this point, Studrawa is going to continue to coach the offensive line, preparing his unit for the 2019 season. “It’s unbelievable, but you know what? That’s part of this business, everybody understands it, you know, and you hope that you’ve done a good enough job and you’ve got the proof in the pudding, and that the guy wants you on his staff,” Studrawa said. “I’ve got no indications otherwise, so I’m looking forward to getting the guys ready to play this game.”
