Ray Rice pleads not guilty to third degree aggravated assault

Life continues to get messy for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who several days ago, pleaded not guilty after he was indicted on third-degree aggravated assault charges against his fiancée-turned-wife Janay Palmer.

Days after his indictment, Ray and Palmer married in what some are saying was a sneaky attempt to downplay the situation. Ray then applied for a pretrial intervention program in an attempt to avoid formal prosecution but is awaiting acceptance.

Unfortunately for the NFL star, if he is not accepted into the pretrial intervention program, he’ll have to report to court May 29 to face the heavy charges.

Luckily for Rice, should he be accepted into the program, there is a chance that he could accept a plea agreement where he would receive no jail time and only probation. In addition, Rice would have to attend anger-management counseling. While this may seem like a nicely wrapped deal, in order to receive the plea agreement, the running back would have to plead guilty.

As you may recall, Ray was arrested in February at the Revel Casino and Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey after a brutal brawl between him and his wife Janay Palmer that left his child’s mother unconscious. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie

    well good EXAMPLE OF A WOMAN DESPERATE TO SAVE A THUGG… SHE is not sure she want to go it alone and just leave him the money and the security is why some women tolerate the abuse ,i saw the video and he was clearly beating her and dragging her body …… why she choose to stay is weird and will bit her in the asss later ,she is so sad .and need counseling ..and need to get her child an run … if this man ever feel he is on the losing end he will attack her again and again she will always be the victime of him he doesnt give a shit bout her she better understand that …

    JUST THE fact he married her to attempt to sway the judge is ignorant . like no one is smart enough to see his plott. . i hope they give him the maxiumum he should be stripped of his baller income .and punished for what he did .. im telling you an abuser will go to the end of the earth to appear normal .. they seek out weak women women they scream at and she cry or beg for him to stop… i know how abusers act … she need to get away from him this will not be the last of the beatings and next time it may be a funeral
