On Tuesday, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was accepted into a pretrial intervention program that will see a dismissal of his assault charge if he’s able to complete the program, and price per head sportsbooks hope that he makes it.
Pay per head services learned that the pretrial intervention program is a diversion program that lets certain defendants (especially first-time ones) avoid being formally prosecuted.
Rice, who’s very well known with price per head sportsbooks all over the world, will have to attend the program for at least one year. If he’s able to completes the program, his third-degree aggravated assault charge stemming from the incident that took place on Feb. 15 involving Janay Palmer – now his wife – will be dismissed. The arrest would stay on his record but without him getting convicted.
“We’re very happy with the result. We’re glad that the court and the prosecutor’s office agreed PTI was the appropriate disposition for the case,” Rice’s attorney, Michael Diamondstein, told ESPN’s Adam Caplan when he was contacted about the decision.
“This decision was arrived at after careful consideration of the information contained in Mr. Rice’s application in light of all the facts gathered during the investigation,” prosecutor Jim McClain said. “After considering all relevant information in light of applicable law it was determined that this was the appropriate disposition.”
And pay per head services saw that Chad Steele, spokesman for the Ravens, said that it was too early to comment since the Ravens haven’t yet said anything about Rice’s acceptance into the program.
Price per head sportsbooks remember that on February 15, Rice was arrested and charged with simple assault-domestic violence after a physical altercation took place with Palmer – his then-fiancée – in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Palmer was also charged in the incident.
