MADRID -- Spanish authorities have detained 34 people, including six tennis players, involved in a tennis match-fixing network that made more than $500,000 from lower-tier tournaments in Spain and Portugal.Police said Thursday that Operation Futures probed several Futures and Challenger tournaments in Iberia for the past several months and found evidence that results were rigged.The tennis players were not identified, but authorities said they were ranked between Nos. 800 and 1,200 in the world. Their Spanish rankings ranged between Nos. 30 and 300.Police said they found evidence of match-fixing attempts in 17 mens tournaments in five cities, including Madrid, Seville and Porto.Authorities said the two alleged leaders of the network were among those detained across 12 Spanish cities. The leaders were based in Seville and La Coruna. All those detained were Spaniards and are expected to remain free pending trial.If convicted of corruption in sports, they could face prison sentences of up to four years.The investigation began after a tip given by a player to the Tennis Integrity Unit, the sports anti-corruption body.Investigation of corruption allegations by law enforcement agencies takes precedence over tennis disciplinary action, the body said in an email. The TIU will continue to work co-operatively with [Spanish police] and offer its full support and access to resources.Authorities took the case forward after noticing an unusual number of online bets related to the suspected tournaments.The network allegedly used instant-messaging groups and social media to attract online bettors who would pay for the information about rigged results.The players who participated in the scheme would receive about $1,000 for each match. In some cases, they were asked to lose specific points or games.The networks earnings in some of the tournaments surpassed $10,000.The Challenger tournaments are second-tier events organized by the ATP, while the Futures are single-week competitions organized by the International Tennis Federation offering either $10,000 or $25,000 in prize money.There were almost 40 Futures tournaments in Spain this season and more than 10 in Portugal.

NEW ORLEANS -- Trial begins Monday for Cardell Hayes, 29, who has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the April shooting death of former New Orleans Saints star Will Smith. A look at some of the key figures in the case:- The dead man: Will Smith, 34. A native of Queens, New York, Smith played for Ohio States 2002 national championship team. He graduated from the school in 2005 with a degree in criminology. He was a first-round draft choice by New Orleans in 2004. He was part of the 2006 team that put together an impressive winning season and helped lift the stricken citys spirits during a difficult recovery from Hurricane Katrina. He led the Saints with a career-high 13 sacks in the 2009 season, capped by victory in the clubs only Super Bowl appearance. He settled in the city after his retirement following the 2012 season, where he was known for various charitable activities.Smiths career and life were not without controversy. The NFL concluded that, in 2012, he was part of a locker-room pool that paid cash bonuses for heavy and even injurious hits. In 2011, Smith was indicted on misdemeanor charges of domestic abuse battery and public intoxication after Lafayette Police officers saw him grab his wifes hair in an argument. Those charges were dismissed at his wifes request after Smith went through counseling and performed community service.- The suspect: Cardell Hayes, 29. The owner of a tow truck company, and a former player in a semiprofessional football league, Hayes is described by friends as the attentive father of one son, age 5 at the time of Hayes arrest. Cast by an attorney for Will Smiths family as an enraged gunman, Hayes is described much differently by those who know him. Lee Green, who coached Hayes in high school, remembered him as cheerful, quiet, and something of a mamas boy. Pastor ShaTeek Nobles of My Redeemer Missionary Baptist Church describes Hayes as an even-tempered nice guy. Hayes only other run-in witth the law was a 2010 arrest during which he was found to have a gun and codeine in his car.dddddddddddd He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drug and weapon charges and his six-month sentence was suspended.- Among the possible witnesses:Raquel Smith. The widow of Will Smith was wounded in the legs on the night of the shooting and, judging from remarks made since by a family attorney and spokesman, would be expected to bolster the prosecution case that Hayes was the aggressor that night.William Ceravolo, a former New Orleans police officer and a friend of Will Smith, had dined with Will and Raquel Smith prior to the shooting. In a court hearing held before Hayes was formally charged, a private detective testified that a witness told him he saw Ceravolo take a gun from the front seat of Smiths car before investigators arrived. Ceravolos attorney has since denied that, stressing that the former officer was not present at the time of the shooting.Former Saints running back Pierre Thomas was also with the Smiths that evening and said on his Facebook page that he witnessed the shooting.- The lawyers: John Fuller is Hayes defense attorney, a constant presence at the New Orleans criminal courthouse, where his relationship with District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro is prickly. Fuller at one point tried unsuccessfully to have Cannizzaros office removed from trying Hayes case. His motion followed a 206-page report Cannizzaro distributed to local, state and federal law enforcement agencies alleging that Fuller and others sought to intimidate witnesses and jeopardized the safety of witnesses in cases unrelated to Smiths death. A judge rejected the motion.Assistant District Attorneys Laura Rodrigue (Cannizzaros daughter) and Jason Napoli, both veterans of high-profile criminal cases, are expected to have major prosecution roles.
