SAN FRANCISCO -- A California court said Thursday that a judge who was harshly criticized and subjected to a recall campaign for the leniency of a six-month jail sentence for a former Stanford University swimmer who raped an unconscious woman will no longer hear criminal cases, a move that came at his own request. Franco Harris Jersey .Santa Clara County Presiding Judge Rise Pichon said she has granted the request for reassignment of Judge Aaron Persky.While I firmly believe in Judge Perskys ability to serve in his current assignment, he has requested to be assigned to the civil division, in which he previously served, Pichon said in a statement. Judge Persky believes the change will aid the public and the court by reducing the distractions that threaten to interfere with his ability to effectively discharge the duties of his current criminal assignment.The move is not necessarily permanent. The assignment is subject to an annual review and takes effect Sept. 6.Persky ordered the six-month sentence for Brock Turner, a Dayton, Ohio, resident who had been attending Stanford on a swimming scholarship. The judge cited a probation department recommendation and the effect the conviction will have on Turners life.Authorities say Turner sexually assaulted the woman while she was passed out near a trash bin.The case sparked a national debate on college drinking and sexual assault and led to a recall effort against the judge.Michelle Dauber, the Stanford law professor behind the recall effort, said that while the move from Persky is welcome, the recall attempt will continue, in part because Persky can still transfer back to hearing criminal cases any time he chooses.The issue of his judicial bias in favor of privileged defendants in sex crimes and domestic violence still needs to be addressed by the voters of Santa Clara County, Dauber said in an email. In our opinion, Judge Persky is biased and should not be on the bench.Dauber and other organizers have said they will begin collecting signatures in April to qualify the issue for the November 2017 ballot.Persky had already removed himself from two sex-crimes cases since his June sentencing of the 20-year-old Turner exploded in national media.On Monday he formally recused himself from deciding whether to reduce a San Jose plumbers felony child pornography charges to misdemeanors.That came two months after the district attorneys office removed Persky from a different sexual assault case, saying we lack confidence in the judges ability to decide it impartially.A jury convicted Turner, a former Olympic hopeful, of sexually assaulting the young woman he met at a campus fraternity party in January 2015 after she passed out behind a trash bin.The sentence along with the long and much-shared statement the victim read in court made the case a national rallying cry for a reconsideration of how rape is handled by the law. Tyson Alualu Jersey . Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. Merril Hoge Jersey .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. http:///...chris-boswell-jersey . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Vic Beasley heard the grumbling. He was a wasted pick in the first round. He wasnt going to be able to play every down in the NFL.No ones talking that way anymore.Beasley has made a huge leap in his second season with Atlanta, giving the Falcons something they havent had in years: a fearsome pass rusher.He already has 10.5 sacks, ranking No. 2 in the league behind Denvers Von Miller. Its the most sacks by a Falcons player since John Abraham had 13 in 2010.Beasley wants more.Im not satisfied, he said this week, standing at his locker before practice. Theres more out there for me. I feel like Im just now grasping my potential.Beasley started every game as a rookie but hardly had the sort of impact the Falcons (7-5) were expecting when they drafted him No. 8 overall.At 6-foot-3 and 246 pounds, he was caught in between -- a bit too small to be a traditional defensive end, a bit too large to play outside linebacker. Some projected him as merely a situational player, coming in on obvious passing downs with the single-minded objective to get pressure on the quarterback.The Falcons, who are tied for first in the NFC South heading into Sundays game at Los Angeles against the Rams, thought he could be more. Coach Dan Quinn saw a hybrid player who would fit as an outside linebacker in the base defense, or was capable of lining up as a defensive end in the nickel package.It didnt happen right away. As a rookie, Beasley managed only four sacks on a team that had just 19 overall.Youve got to understand that youre brought here for a reason, he said. I didnt want to let one year get me down.Still, the criticism weighed on him. Beasley returned for Year 2 with a new drive and focus.Quinn noticed the change.Its the work ethic that, honestly, he came back with that set him off in terms of, `I want to go for it, the coach said. Those are the things that dont show up on the stat sheet.Beasley is more than just a pass rusher.As an undersized D-end, hes doing a good job in the run game, Quinn said. Hes light, but hes strong. Hes able to get his hands on guys and he caan shed tight ends. Anthony Chickillo Jersey. It also helped that the Falcons brought in 15-year veteran Dwight Freeney, who has served as a mentor to Beasley and other young players on a defense that has started as many as four rookies.Hes shown an eagerness to learn, Freeney said of Beasley. Mentally, his football IQ is starting to grow, which tends to happen from a first-year to a second-year player. Hes starting to realize more. I try to help him out wherever I can.Beasleys first step is the thing that sets him apart. Hes so quick off the edge, its difficult for someone to block him alone. Offenses usually have to assign an extra blocker, or at least hope the tight end can get a bit a piece of Beasley to slow him down.I come off the ball pretty well, he said. Some things they can teach you. Some things are just God-given.After recording only one sack in the first four games, Beasley had a breakout performance at Denver with 3.5 sacks -- nearly matching the total for his entire career to that point.Since then, hes had two more multi-sack games.Yep, the Falcons do have a pass rusher.Finally.Hes in a good place, Quinn said. Mentally with his game, in his preparation, in his routine, hes really locked in.Game notes The Falcons announced a four-year contract extension for CB Robert Alford. Quinn said the team wants to work out a similar deal with its best corner, Desmond Trufant, who is out for the year with a pectoral injury. Tru totally embodies all the things were looking for, the coach said. Were hopeful that hell be with it for the long term as well. ... WR Julio Jones (turf toe), OT Jake Mattews (knee) and WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) missed another day of practice. Quinn said Jones would do some light drills and hoped to get limited reps on Friday.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .
