Albert who strode up to the microphones outside the Arlington County Courthouse in the spring and predicted I will be proven innocent at That was before his longtime mistress sobbed on the witness stand and described how Albert violently bit her and forced her to perform oral sex It was before another woman testified that she too had been bitten by Albert in a sexual attack That was before millions of television sports viewers learned of his penchant for wearing womens underwear and for pornographic movies and threeway sex Inside that same courthouse Thursday the bravado was gone the booming sportscasters voice barely audible when Albert pleaded guilty to assault and battery ending the trial that threw a spotlight on his kinky sex life and left his broadcasting career in tatters I just felt like I had to end this ordeal for myself my wonderful family my fiancee Heather my friends and Albert said outside court in a weary voice Hours after he pleaded guilty NBC fired him News

Cylinder 4 Door Luggage Rack Cruise Dark Blue MARV ALBERT Albert 56 pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge for biting the woman which could send him to jail for a year and cost him in fines at sentencing Oct 24 In exchange for his plea prosecutors dropped the felony charge of forcible sodomy which could have sent Albert to prison for life Albert was accused of flinging the woman onto a bed viciously biting her and forcing her to perform oral sex in an Arlington hotel room Feb 12 for failing to bring another man into their bed The Brooklyn native who for thrte decades has been one of Americas most distinctive sports voices with his exuberant Yesss call had been allowed to continue as NBCs playbyplay man after the May indictment Outsidecourt Albert thanked NBC for standing by him Less than four hours later the network issued a statement saying it only stood by Albert because he gave assurances the charges were untrue Today given Mr Alberts plea NBC terminates its relationship with Marv Albert later resigned from the regional MSG cable network as the voice of basketballs New York Knicks His plea came a day after a surprise witness came forward with similar accusations that Albert wearing white panties and a garter belt bit her on the neck and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him during a 1994 struggle in a Dallas hotel room that left her holding his toupee The significance of that testimony is said Arlington County Commonwealth s Attorney Richard Trodden adding the deal was endorsed by Alberts 42yearold accuser for the FAAs Southwest Region Authorities said

Brazoria County That jail is run by Capital Correctional a Jackson Mississippibased private prison company Another written policy is not going to prevent something like Carmella Jones a jail standards commission member and the Armstrong County sheriff said during a commission meeting Thursday Media tobacco industry ask Judge for no gag order AUSTIN AP The federal judge presiding over Texas billion lawsuit against the tobacco industry is being urged not to impose a sweeping gag order that could silence lawyers and others involved in the upcoming trial Fundamentally such an order would significantly impede the ability of the citizens of Texas to observe the actions of their government in this argued lawyers for Dow Jones publisher of The Wall Street Journal The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday filed arguments against the proposed gag order and attorney Paul Waller said he expected to file more on Friday on behalf of The New and the Los Angeles Times In addition attorneys for both the tobacco industry and the state are objecting to the order Exofficers released on bond McALLEN Texas AP Three exlawmen accused of taking bribes to help drug traffickers smuggle marijuana are free on bond today after they were admonished against threatening anyone associated with the case The stiff warning was issued Thursday by federal magistrates after prosecutor Terry Leonard disclosed

attorney Roy Black said that wasnt so and that the judge had gutted his case by refusing to allow evidence about the womans background It was a much different plea than was offered Black said on CNNs Larry King The defense team wanted to present evidence showing that Alberts accuser staged a suicide attempt feigned a pregnancy and sought revenge against a boyfriend who dumpedher and made up as much as 90 percent of the defense the lawyer said I feel this is the best way for Marv to end this matter and after much discussion Marv agreed to take my Black said During three days of explicit testimony Alberts 42yearold accuser recounted a 10year affair where he often asked her to bring along womens underwear for him to wear or for men to participate in three way sex Her credibility was undermined when Black played an audio tape Tuesday that seemed to catch her bribing a potential witness against Albert The woman said that what sounded like a bribe was just a joke though outside of court on Thursday the witness cab driver Walter Biggie Brodie said he considered the offer real But the tide turned Wednesday when Circuit Judge Benjamin Kendrick allowed a second woman to tell her story Patricia Masden gave a matterof fact account how Albert bit her on the lip in a Miami hotel room in 1993 and asked her to find a man for a sexual threesome Then she told the story that buried Albert an attack remarkably similar to the account given by Alberts accuser that Albert called her to his Dallas hotel room in 1994 and wearing only white panties and a garter belt confronted her He rubbed against her saying he was tense and needed some she said Then he bit her neck and tried to push her head toward his crotch and give him oral sex In a struggle she grabbed his hairpiece and pulled His hair lifted off and he immediately put his hands on his she said Three rows of Alberts supporters his fiancee and his daughter included sat calmly grimly in the courtroom hearing the humiliating account In a statement Albert said he would try to rebuild his personal and professional lives Dont count Marv said defense attorney Peter Greenspun Hes going K be FAIR SEPTEMBER 2328
