Swimming - Generic Graphic

USA Swimming announced a partnership Monday with a national children's group to help protect athletes from sexual abuse, a move that did little to placate the most vocal critics of the embattled governing body.

The Washington, D.C.-based Child Welfare League of America, which describes itself as the nation's oldest and largest membership-based organization dealing with child welfare issues, will help USA Swimming develop new safeguards and conduct an annual audit to ensure enough is being done to prevent coaches from having improper contact with their athletes.

"We recognized the importance of obtaining concentrated input from independent experts in the field of child welfare," USA Swimming executive director Chuck Wielgus said in a statement. "After meeting with CWLA and reviewing the long and distinguished history of the organization, we are confident that we have the best people helping us with our ongoing efforts to serve our membership."

Ohio State recruit remains in critical condition

Shooting, Generic

Shooting, Generic

COLUMBUS, OHIO — Police say an Ohio State football recruit remains in critical condition a day after he was shot multiple times and a teenage girl was killed at a house in Youngstown.

Police say they have a suspect in Saturday's shooting of Jamel Turner but no arrest has been made. Authorities declined to provide additional information Sunday.

Seventeen-year-old Tracy Banks died in the shooting. A 4-year-old girl found inside the house was unharmed.

It wasn't immediately clear who owned the house. A message was left Sunday at a phone listing.

Turner, a defensive end, signed with the Buckeyes in February. Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel issued a statement saying that he's praying for Turner. University spokeswoman Shelly Poe said the school had no further comment Sunday.

ODESSA, TEXAS — A 22-year-old man accused of posing as a teenager to become a high school basketball star in Texas pleaded not guilty to the six felony charges.

A spokesman for Guerdwich (GERD-itch) Montimer's attorney said Friday that Montimer waived his arraignment and entered not guilty pleas.

Montimer is accused of two counts of sexual assault, three counts of tampering with government records and identity theft.

Prosecutors say Montimer posed as a teenager named "Jerry Joseph" and played basketball last year at Odessa Permian High School. The West Texas school's football team inspired the book "Friday Night Lights."

The alleged fraud unraveled after coaches at an amateur basketball tournament said they recognized Montimer as a 2007 graduate of a Florida high school.
