(WBNG) — A town of Chenango man has been sentenced to more than a decade in jail for sex crimes against a child. Birt was arrested in August 2019 and pleaded guilty in January 2020. The victim was a girl less than 11-year-old, according to the district attorney’s office. The Broome County District Attorney’s Office says 70-year-old Larry G. Birt was sentenced to 12 years in prison and 10 years parole for 1st degree course of sexual conduct against a child. Broome County District Attorney Michael A. Korchak says its unlikely Birt will ever reoffend based on his age and prison sentence.
Press Association Ulster were unable to score again but led convincingly at the turnaround. Eight minutes into the second half, Edinburgh got their first score after Burleigh chipped through for Du Preez to get the touchdown in the corner, and Cuthbert added a superb conversion to cut Ulster’s lead to seven. Ulster needed to respond and Stuart McCloskey wriggled over in the 53rd minute, but with no obvious view of the ball referee Ian Davies had to rule out the score after consulting with the TMO. From the scrum, Clive Ross was held up over the line and Jackson’s subsequent half-break led to nothing as well. Then, just to add to Ulster’s woes, Tuohy was helped off the field. With conditions deteriorating further, Ulster kept battering away and finally seemed to have made another breakthrough when Luke Marshall burst through to score in the 71st minute, only for the TMO to intervene after Chris Henry obstructed a defender, and the home side were unable to add to their total. Ulster bagged an essential win for their Guinness PRO12 campaign by beating Edinburgh 14-7 at a rain and wind-lashed Kingspan Stadium. But a fifth victory from nine league games came at a cost, with four players suffering injuries. The home side lost Iain Henderson, Darren Cave, Dan Tuohy and Peter Nelson to various problems, with Henderson’s early issue – believed to be hamstring-related – being of particular concern. And with their back-to-back European Champions Cup meetings with Toulouse coming up, Ulster head coach Les Kiss now looks to have huge problems in keeping alive his side’s interest in that competition. Ulster got their much-needed four points, to avenge losing at Edinburgh earlier in the season and climb to fifth place, through a first-half try for Rory Scholes along with a penalty try and two Paddy Jackson conversions after playing with the elements at their backs. The Scots, trailing 14-0 at half-time, came back through a score from Cornell Du Preez and a Jack Cuthbert conversion but neither side was then able to add any further points. It was a frustrating end to the day for Edinburgh, following the earlier announcement that head coach Alan Solomons has extended his contract until the end of next season. There were worrying scenes for Ulster early on as Henderson was felled with a leg injury and the game was held up for several minutes before the Ireland international was taken off in the medical cart. With Henderson’s injury striking as he pressurised Phil Burleigh on the Edinburgh line, Ulster – once play resumed after Henderson’s removal – secured the lineout and drove for the Scots’ line with Ruan Pienaar adjudged by the TMO to have been illegally impeded from scoring and a penalty try being awarded. Jackson converted the fifth-minute score. Shortly after Cuthbert was short into the wind with a penalty attempt, Ulster scored again when Rory Scholes burst through to dot down near the sticks. Jackson also converted the Ulster winger’s 10th-minute try and the home side led 14-0. Ulster then lost full-back Nelson to injury, with another backline reshuffle taking place which shortly afterwards saw Scholes also taken off with a head injury forcing Paul Marshall to be brought on to cover wing until Scholes was cleared to return.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP):Atletico Madrid substitute Luciano Vietto scored a late goal to snatch a 1-1 draw against crosstown rivals Real Madrid yesterday, denying Rafa Benitez’s side the chance to reclaim the Spanish league lead.Karim Benzema gave Madrid a great start with his league-leading sixth goal to quiet the Vicente Calderon crowd just nine minutes into the match, and goalkeeper Keylor Navas protected that advantage by saving Antoine Griezmann’s penalty in the 22nd minute.But as Madrid settled for defending instead of seeking a second goal to seal the win, Atletico pushed forward and Vietto poked in a cross from fellow substitute Jackson Martinez that the goalie couldn’t handle in the 83rd.”We had the win in our hands,” Navas said. “This isn’t the result we wanted, but it’s a point and we have to value it. We committed a mistake and in these games errors are paid for dearly.”SQUANDERED OPPORTUNITYStill unbeaten, Madrid squandered the opportunity to overtake Villarreal at the top of the standings after the leader lost 1-0 at Levante earlier.Madrid were left one point behind in second place, level on points with Celta Vigo in third and Barcelona in fourth after the defending champions’ 2-1 loss at Sevilla on Saturday.Diego Simeone’s Atletico remained in fifth place, three points off Vilarreal’s pace.”We snatched a point, and tried to get the win, but it wasn’t to be,” the 21-year-old Vietto said after his first goal for Atletico since transferring from Villareal following his breakout last season.
