Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadAlcohol

Saaayyy whhhaatt??

How do they not allow someone to go BACK to jail?

As we previously mentioned, Mark Kerrigan, Nancy Kerrigan's brother, has been in jail for an alcohol-fueled assault that lead to the death of their father.

Mark had asked a judge to be allowed to serve the rest of his sentence in jail so he wouldn't have to be released early and adhere to all sorts of rules involving lots of classes and therapy.

The judge shot that down reaaal quick, saying:

Nancy Kerrigan's Kids Are Ice Skaters Too!

Nancy Kerrigan's Kids Are Ice Skaters Too!

The apple doesn't fall far from the rink!

The offspring of famed ice skater, Nancy Kerrigan, are trying out the family trade!

The two-time Olympic medalist and mother of three, admits to getting her youngest, daughter Nicole, out on the ice when she was just 14-months-old.

Now that Nicole is three, she wears tiny hand-me-down skates from when her brothers, Matthew (16) and Brian (6½), were tiny skaters!

Kerrigan says her mini-mes have inherited some of her natural talent, but there's just one problem: they think they're above taking any tips from their world famous mom! She said:

“They all like going skating and they definitely like people clapping for them. They say, ‘Watch me’ and I try to give them tips, but they don’t necessarily listen to me.”

Well, we hope they start listening soon!

We'd love to see Kerrigan's kids at the 2030 winter Olympics!

Nancy Kerrigan's Brother Awaiting Verdict On Manslaughter Charge

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFitness

Nancy Kerrigan

Nancy Kerrigan's brother, Mark, is currently waiting for jury deliberations on whether or not he is guilty of killing his father, Daniel Kerrigan.

Mark got into a violent argument while intoxicated with his 70-year-old father who died from heart failure as a result on January 24, 2010.

The prosecutor referred to Mark as an "angry, mean, nasty, drunk son" while asking the jury for a guilty verdict under the charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault and battery on a person 60 years or older causing serious bodily injury.

We would naturally assume this would tear the Olympic gold medalist's family apart, but Nancy and her mother, Brenda, actually SUPPORT Mark. In fact, Brenda even testified on his behalf.

Although accused of grabbing his father around the neck during the fight that may have lead to his death, Brenda said the altercation lasted only a few seconds with Mark never touching his father's neck. Instead, she claims she saw her son "bear hug" her husband around his waist, then watched him fall to the floor "like a feather coming right out of the sky."

Guilty or not, this is a pretty awful circumstance for any family to go through.

If convicted of manslaughter, Mark could serve simple probation or up to 20 years in prison, while the assault and battery charges carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.
