A grand jury indicted Peterson, and he was charged with child abuse in the beating of his four old son.

Peterson turned himself into police in Houston, Texas shortly after the photos were released. If convicted, Peterson could face up to two years in prison.

NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, continues to defend his position that he was unaware of the video tape that reportedly was sent to the NFL back in April. Goodell originally suspend Rice for two games when the tapes were made public. Rice was released from the Baltimore Ravens this week, after TMZ broke the story and released video showing Rice’s elevator attack on his then fiancee, now wife, Janay Rice. The NFL has since then suspended Rice indefinitely and hired former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, to conduct an independent investigation into the matter.

Our South Florida Remote Uplink Studio in Fort Lauderdale, covering the latest in the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius. We welcomed back criminal defense attorney, Brian Silber, to our state of the art HD studio, as he joined Fox News’ Happening Now Show to give his legal analysis of the pending verdict. The judge in the trial is getting ready to hand down her verdict in this trial. If convicted of the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, Pistorius can face 25 years to life behind bars. Pistorius’ attorneys say Steenkamp’s death was a terrible accident. Prosecutors, on the other hand, say the death was no accident, claiming Pistorius planned her murder. Unlike in the U.S. legal system where a defendant’s guilt is decided by a jury of his peers, Pistorius fate rests in the decision of the judge alone.
