Ravens Plan Press Conference With Ray Rice for Later Date
Updated: Friday, May 23 2014, 04:44 PM EDT
Court employees on Tuesday confirmed that Baltimore Ravens Running Back Ray Rice was accepted into the Pre Trial Intervention Program (PTI). If Rice successfully completes the program it would result in the charge against him being dropped and his record expunged.
Earlier this month he entered a not-guilty plea to third degree
aggravated assault stemming from an incident with his then-girlfriend in
an Atlantic City casino elevator.
Ravens President Richard Cass told FOX45 he planned to speak with Rice Wednesday regarding the PTI program, calling the direction of the case "a good development." He noted, "at some point we’ll have a press conference and Ray will speak with the press about it."
Rice was due in a New Jersey courtroom on May 29 for a status conference, but that hearing has been cancelled.
"The Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI) provides defendants, generally first-time offenders, with opportunities for alternatives to the traditional criminal justice process of ordinary prosecution," judiciary.state.nj.us explains. "PTI seeks to render early rehabilitative services, when such services can reasonably be expected to deter future criminal behavior. The PTI program is based on a rehabilitative model that recognizes that there may be an apparent causal connection between the offense charged and the rehabilitative needs of a defendant. Further, the rehabilitative model emphasizes that social, cultural, and economic conditions often result in a defendant's decision to commit crime."
On February 15th police in Atlantic City arrested Rice after he was accused of assaulting his fiancee at the time. A grand jury later indicted him on a more serious charge. The two have since married.
Video obtained by TMZ Sports showed Rice attempting to drag an unconscious Janay off an elevator inside an Atlantic City Casino. Earlier this month, prosecutors confirmed there was other video of the incident presumably from inside the elevator.
