WNBA star Maya Moore helps free Missouri man from prison

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — A Missouri man was freed from prison Wednesday after a county prosecutor declined to retry his case, punctuating years of work by WNBA star Maya Moore and other supporters who argued he was falsely convicted of burglary and assault charges.

Moore was on hand when Jonathan Irons, 40, walked out of the Jefferson City Correctional Center. She clapped as Irons approached a group of people waiting for his release. She then dropped to her knees at one point before joining a group hug around Irons.

He had been serving a 50-year prison sentence stemming from the non-fatal shooting of a homeowner in the St. Louis area when Irons was 16. But a judge threw out his convictions in March, citing a series of problems with the case, including a fingerprint report that had not been turned over to Irons’ defence team, according to The New York Times.

The Missouri attorney general’s office unsuccessfully appealed the judge’s decision, and the lead prosecutor in St. Charles County decided against a retrial.

Moore and Irons became friends after meeting through prison ministry, according to the Times. The 31-year-old Moore, a Jefferson City, Missouri, native who starred at UConn before helping lead Minnesota to four WNBA titles, put her career on hold last season to help Irons.

Moore said in January she planned to sit out a second season and miss the Tokyo Olympics. After Irons’ convictions were thrown out in March, she told the AP her plans hadn’t changed.

Still not road’s end for Phil, James in PH

Philippine football has not seen the end of Phil and James Younghusband yet.

While the brothers are already retired after remarkable careers representing the country, both Phil and James are not ruling out a return albeit in a different capacity.

The brothers have hinted at coaching as the next phase of their careers as they intend to utilize their connections overseas to upgrade their skills and earn the necessary credentials.

Phil and James were former members of the reserve team of English Premier League giants Chelsea before they moved to the Philippines almost a decade ago and became poster boys to the rise of the team as a force in Southeast Asia.

“My goal was always to help develop Philippine football and to go abroad, learn and come back and share that to the Philippines,” said James, 33, who announced his retirement from the game last week just a few months after Phil also called time to his career.

“I want to go back to England, speak to our contacts at Chelsea if I can gain some experience there, gain some knowledge there and also look to go to the United States as well because I realize, I think with the Philippines, we share similarities with the American system, in terms of schooling and sports so I think it’s a good place to learn how they do things there and can bring back to the Philippines,” James added.

Phil, who is now based in Kent, England, said giving back to the sport will always be their priority.

“James and I have always said a lot of our knowledge and experience came from our time at Chelsea football club,” Phil, 32, said during the brothers’ appearance at “CPT Crossover” podcast on Tuesday night.
