Ravens running back Ray Rice has been given an arraignment date stemming from a third-degree aggravated assault charge.

Rice's arraignment date is scheduled for April 28. Rice's charge comes from an incident in February at Revel Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., where he allegedly assaulted Janay Palmer, his fiancée at the time. Rice and Palmer have since wed.

The story was first reported by FOX Baltimore.

If convicted, Rice could face a sentence from three to five years in prison. However, Rice has no priors and would unlikely face jail time.

It's possible Rice enters a plea and won't fight the charge in court.

Rice's tough on-field season, which saw him rush for only 660 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games played, has been followed by a poor offseason. Regardless, the Ravens have publicly stated that he will be a member of the franchise in 2014.
