CLEVELAND — New on 3, get the latest information on what's happening and impacting you across Northeast Ohio on Monday, August 1, 2022, on 3News Now with Stephanie Haney.

The decision about discipline for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson decision is in, with former federal judge Sue L. Robinson issuing a six-game suspension.

Robinson found that Watson committed sexual assault against multiple victims, but didn't go as far as issuing an indefinite suspension based on what she called the "nonviolent" nature of the conduct, the NFL's history of less severe penalties, and what she determined to be a lack of notice for departing from that precedent to issue a harsher penalty.

3News digital anchor Stephanie Haney and 3News sports analyst Ben Axelrod break down the news in a special edition of 3News Now and also talk about what comes next for Watson, including the potential appeal process.
