Ex-WABC Sports Anchor Pleads Guilty, Avoids Jail Time

Marvell Scott pleaded guilty Tuesday to child endangerment and will get 20 days of community service as part of a plea deal.

The former WABC sports anchor admitted that he inappropriately touched a 14-year-old runaway during a July 2008 incident in his Times Square apartment.

U.S. Soccer Star Is Bored, Checks in With The NYT From China

They play the home country on Tuesday morning, but the players have a lot of downtime. Unfortunately, as midfielder Yael Averbuch writes in The New York Times, that’s not as distracting as it usually can be.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube – basically anything fun – is blocked. We’ve also discovered that topics or historical events that may be controversial to the country are blocked from Google. My roommate, Lauren Cheney, and I have made a game of seeing what is and isn’t prohibited. These are the things we found to do in our spare time, especially on game day.

Soccer players: They’re just like us! (Bored in China.)
