Major League Baseball Is Reconsidering Their Stance On Domestic Abuse

Reportedly, Katherine Ramirez, is refusing to cooperate with attorney Kerry Glen in order to prosecute her husband MLB player, Jose Reyes for domestic abuse. The Colorado Rockies player was arrested in Hawaii on October 31, 2015 for allegedly beating and shoving his wife in a Maui hotel room. “This office has made verbal and written requests to speak to [Ramirez], and those requests have been declined,” said Glen. “She is, at this point, refusing to cooperate with the prosecution. For that reason, I will file an order dismissing the case without prejudice.” Subsequently, Reyes will not have to appear in court on Monday, April 4 for the “abuse of a family and/or household member” hearing. The Rockies placed Reyes on paid leave following the initial arrest and he was not allowed to participate in the team’s spring training camp amidst the ongoing investigation. Despite the charges being dropped, Reyes may still face a suspension under the league’s new domestic violence policy. The commissioner’s office is still reviewing the case have yet to make a decision on Reyes’ fate as a professional player. Associated Press
