Former Major League Baseball Slugger Facing Criminal Prosecution on Charges of Domestic Violence

By Sheryl Rentz on September 30, 2011

Manny Ramirez, a former World Series MVP who retired this year after allegations of substance abuse, is facing domestic violence charges for allegedly slapping his wife during an argument, according to The Huffington Post. The former baseball star could be sentenced to up to one year in jail for misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

Domestic violence is against the law, whether it involves physical or emotional abuse, and whether it is directed at a spouse or a child. Ramirez was arrested after his wife called 911, stating that she had been hit in the face and head, which now had a bump, during an argument with her husband. She made the call for fear that the violence would escalate. After determining that she was safe from further harm, the dispatcher sent law enforcement to the home. It is unknown whether there have been previous incidents of domestic violence.

If you or a loved one has been or is a victim of domestic violence, the most important step to take is to safely leave the situation or take legal action to make it stop. In many divorce cases, if domestic violence had been present in the marriage, the victim may be entitled to substantial benefits, including full child custody and sole ownership of any assets.
