Football Star Acquitted of Domestic Violence Charges
Our South Florida criminal defense attorneys have been following a news story out of Atlanta involving Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall, 25.
Marshall’s ex-girlfriend Rasheedah Watley had accused him of pushing her on a bed and grabbing her neck. She testified in court that he had assaulted her during several incidents at the condo they shared in March of last year. Her attorneys showed photos demonstrating Watley’s face and neck the morning after the alleged fight. Marshall has been arrested at least four times since March of 2006.
A jury of four women and two men acquitted Marshall of domestic violence charges in less than an hour. He missed a game last season after violating the personal conduct policy. Marshall’s suspension had been reduced from three games to one.
