Ex-NFL Star Kellen Winslow, II Agrees To 14 Years Behind Bars For Sex Crimes
Former NFL player Kellen Winslow, II has agreed to a new plea deal that will punish him with 14 years behind bars for raping two women, assault- ing another and committing misdemeanor sex crimes against two others, according to an agreement submitted Fri- day in San Diego Superior Court.

The previous deal stipulated a sentencing range of 12 to 18 years behind bars, to be determined by the judge after a sentencing hearing.
Winslow, 37, appeared re- motely in a court hearing from his jail in San Diego County.
Naomi Osaka Wins 2021 Australian Open Women's Title In Straight Sets
    Donates 3,000 Meals
To The City Of Houston
 Although he had a messy divorce from the Houston Rockets, James Harden’s heart remains with the city. Residents of Houston are dealing with the aftermath of a brutal winter storm that left thousands without power and water for days. And as the city tries to recover, Houston now faces another crisis.
Due to no power, grocery store associates had to empty their shelves and freezers upon their return — causing a significant food shortage within the city. And similar to his performances inside the Toyota Center for eight years, Houston’s struggles gave Harden another chance to rise to the occasion for the city.
Over the weekend, Harden donated 3,000 meals through his new restau- rant, Thirteen. He made an announcement on his Insta- gram account, giving resi- dents the option to pick up the food in-person or have it de- livered. The donations were made possible by Harden and The Relief Gang.
Naomi Osaka continues her reign at the top of tennis.
The star athlete won her fourth title in her past eight appearances at a Slam when she beat Jennifer Brady in straight sets to win the Aus- tralian Open Women’s Final on Saturday. With this win, she improved to 4-0 in major finals appearances, making her the first woman since Monica Seles to start her career with such dominance.
“She played really well
when she had to,” Brady said to ESPN. “She hit good shots when she needed them.”
Osaka is currently on a 21-match win streak which in- cluded a win over the iconic Serena Williams. Heading into Melbourne, she was the No. 3 player in the world but after her impressive win, she’s likely to improve to No. 2. Osaka also won with grace, extending her congratulations to Brady during the trophy ceremony.
