In the Clear? Not so Fast …

Just because a county prosecutor may choose to not file a criminal charge doesn’t mean you are “out of the woods”.  Just ask former Seattle Seahawk, Leroy Hill. On Wednesday the King County Prosecuting Attorney announced that there was insufficient evidence to charge Mr. Hill with a felony after he was arrested in January on allegations of domestic violence. The case will now be assessed by the Issaquah City Prosecutor for misdemeanor domestic violence charges. If charged and convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence, Mr. Hill would face 364 days in jail, a fine of $5,000 and probationary supervision for up to two years. Undoubtedly, Mr. Hill would also be required to partake in domestic violence batterer’s treatment.
