The U.S. Marshals Service has recovered 45 children as a part of an operation called “Autumn Hope.”

According to Columbus Ohio affiliate WBNS, the multi-agency enforcement operation ended with 169 arrests made by the Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force. The task was pulled off as a collaborative effort between USMS officers in Southern Ohio and Southern West Virginia, Ohio Attorney General’s Office and Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force. The children recovered were reportedly missing for a variety of reasons including homelessness, domestic abuse, runaways or trafficking.

The operation also led to the discovery of a loaded gun when police found a 15-year-old who was suspected in a number of shootings and a homicide, CBS News’ Caitlin O’Kane writes via WBNS. Another child, 15, was connected to a person who authorities believe is participating in human trafficking in Columbus, the outlet reports. During a traffic stop, Marshals in West Virginia and USMS Southern Ohio task force recovered two children, and a 14-year-old girl who was reported missing was recovered in the middle of the night within six hours of being reported missing.

Last month, USMS announced that 25 missing and endangered children between the ages of 13 and 18 were recovered in a 20-day mission called “Operation Safety Net” that took place in Ohio. Less than a week later, USMS reports that eight children were rescued in the Indianapolis areas in just five days and that one person was arrested on charges including parental kidnapping.

The latest operation was “Operation Not Forgotten,” a task took two weeks and saved 39 missing children in Georgia, and 13 others were safely located.

Former NFL Player Kellen Winslow II Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison

Former NFL football player Kellen Winslow II was sentenced to 14 years in prison under a plea deal on Wednesday. He was convicted for multiple rapes and sexual offenses against five Southern California women. 

According to the New York Post, Winslow, 37, was convicted on charges of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, assault with intent to commit rape, indecent exposure, and lewd conduct in public. He will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. 

He appeared in court virtually at the hearing in San Diego Superior Court in Vista, California. At the advice of his attorneys, Winslow did not speak before his sentencing.

San Diego County Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman said Winslow could only be described with “two words, and that is sexual predator,” according to the outlet, and called his crimes “brazen.” Bowman also said that he preyed on vulnerable women, saying, “The vulnerability of the victims was no accident.”

The son of former San Diego Chargers Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow exposed himself to his 57-year-old-neighbor, who was gardening. He also performed a lewd act in front of a 77-year-old woman at a gym while concealing his ankle bracelet with a towel. 

The forcible rape involved a homeless Encinitas woman who was one of the four women who gave victim impact statements on Wednesday.

“It’s affecting my life every day and every night,” she said. “I don’t ever feel safe inside or outside. You brought so much damage to my life.”

All of the women who spoke described the emotional trauma they experienced due to the attacks and how it has impacted their lives.

But that jury failed to agree on other charges, including the alleged 2018 rape of a 54-year-old hitchhiker and the 2003 rape of an unconscious 17-year-old high school senior who went to a party with him when he was 19, according to The Post. Before he was retried on those charges, he pleaded guilty to raping the teen and to the sexual battery of the hitchhiker.

Last month, both sides agreed to drop the sexual battery charge down to assault with intent to commit rape. In doing so, the maximum sentence was reduced to 14 years from the 18 years Winslow initially faced.

At one point in his career, Winslow was one of the highest-paid tight ends in the NFL. A first-round pick, he played for the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, and the New York Jets. His last season playing football was in 2013.

Legendary rapper Bun B called out Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott for reopening the entire state and lifting mask mandates.

Gov. Abbott sparked outrage on Tuesday when he announced he was ending Covid-19 restrictions and lifting the mask mandate.

Abbott said all businesses in the state will reopen fully by March 10.

Many praised the governor for his courage and bravery, but Bun B and others expressed outrage and fear that the Covid-19 death rate would escalate despite the availability of Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

Bun B wrote on Instagram: “This is bat sh*t crazy @govabbott and you know it. As if you didn’t already have enough blood on your hands. SMFH.”

The rapper referred to Gov. Abbott’s response to the recent winter storms that knocked out power to millions of residents and resulted in dozens of deaths.

Bun B took a disrespectful tone, stating Gov. Abbott is “not even Worried bout the people….. He Gotta Get Up Out Of Office… @governorabbott.”

Meanwhile, Joe Biden criticized Abbott and other governors who chose to reopen their states and lift mask mandates. Biden called the decision “Neanderthal thinking.”

Gov. Abbott struck back on Twitter by accusing the president of “recklessly releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants who have COVID into Texas communities.”

A Pack Of Dogs Mauled A Woman To Death After Escaping From Neighbor’s Yard

A woman was killed by a pack of dogs that allegedly escaped from a neighbor’s yard. 

According to Newsweek, a pack of “vicious” dogs attacked a woman identified as Deann Stephenson last month, and now her family is pursuing legal action. On February 15 in the afternoon, Stephenson was walking to a corner store in Porter, Texas, when four dogs attacked her, KPRC-TV reports. 

Newsweek reports that dogs seemed to have escaped from a neighbor’s front yard. The woman died after she was taken to Montgomery County’s Kingwood Hospital. Stephenson and her family had just moved to the area about a year before the incident. Stephenson leaves behind her husband, who is disabled, and one son. 

No details about the woman’s injuries or the breed of the dogs have been clarified. The family has hired Patrick O’Hara in their legal suit. “No criminal charges have been filed against the dog owner. This is horrific, these dogs should have been put down years ago and I believe that blood is on the hands of Montgomery County,” O’Hara told KPRC-TV on March 1. 

According to interviews from the victim’s neighbors, the same dogs have also attacked other residents in the community, one of which was a child. O’Hara, who facilitated the interviews, said he would be filing a lawsuit this week. No defendant has been confirmed. Stephenson’s son and relatives believe the owners should be held responsible. 

“I believe my mom deserves justice. She always took care of me. I think she would want me to fight for her,” said Keaton Clark.
