Judge in Pistorius trial faces criticism

In this Sept. 7, 2014, file photo, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson warms up for an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis.

He says Peterson has cooperated with authorities and "used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son." Hardin says Peterson regrets the incident but never intended to harm the boy.

Judge: Pistorius can’t be found guilty of murder

In this Aug. 30, 2014 file photo, Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Alfredo Simon (31) delivers during the first inning of a baseball game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Pittsburgh. A woman who accused Simon of sexual assault in a lawsuit doesn't have to publicly reveal her name unless the case goes to trial, a District of Columbia judge ruled Wednesday. U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton ruled that the woman, who has been identified in court filings as Jane Doe, doesn't have to re-file her lawsuit using her real name as Simon's lawyers had wanted. But the woman won't be allowed to use a pseudonym if the case goes to trial, Walton said. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar, File)
