A former pro hockey player Michael McBain sentenced to 15 years for sexually assaulting a girl over a four-year period.

Former NFL tight end Mark Chmura was selected by the Packers. Chmura was charged with sexually assaulting his children's babysitter.

After testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs and pleading guilty to federal charges stemming from perjury and her role in the BALCO scandal, Jones was stripped of her medals in 2007, banned from the 2008 Beijing Olympics and sentenced to six months in prison and two years of probation.
