Baltimore Ravens Ray Rice To Avoid Jail Time For Assault Charge

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice will avoid jail time due to a felony aggravated assault for allegedly hitting his soon-to-be wife in Atlantic City earlier this year.

According to the pressofAtlanticCity.com he was accepted into the pretrial intervention program although he plead not guilty to the charge.

“This decision was arrived at after careful consideration of the information contained in Mr. Rice’s application in light of all of the facts gathered during the investigation,” acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain said. “After considering all relevant information in light of applicable law, it was determined that this was the appropriate disposition.”

It will supposedly take about a year for Rice to complete the program.

Rice has yet to hear from the NFL offices of any fines or suspensions that may come due to the charge.
