Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice’s charges have been dismissed and he will avoid doing any jail time stemming from the incident last February in which he struck and knocked unconscious his now-wife, Janay Rice.
After completing his pre-trial intervention program, an Atlantic City Judge Michael Donio on Thursday signed Rice’s dismissal order for the aggravated assault felony charges, a statement from Donio’s office said.
It added that judge this morning dismissal order and recommendation from the prosecutor to sign the order after Rice completed all terms and conditions of the program.
After a second surveillance video of the violent altercation at a Atlantic City casino was published by TMZ in September, Rice, who was initially suspended for just two games, was released by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL. Rice won an appeal of that suspension in November, however, he remains unsigned by any team in the league.
