Ray Rice accepted into pretrial diversion program

Andy Lyons

Rice won't face jail time.

Legally speaking, Ray Rice has cleared his biggest hurdle.

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that Rice has been accepted into a pretrial diversion program, which will keep him out of jail in his assault case. Rice was arrested in February after allegedly striking his now-wife Janay Palmer.



That's good news for Rice, for as long as he completes the program, he won't have the charge on his record anymore. However, he's still eligible for a suspension from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, though Joe Flacco is predicting that doesn't happen.
