Reuben Foster Facing Jail TIme

44 posts in this topic

I know that athletes often seem to get off with light punishments, but he got arrested in Santa Clara County, which is one of the worst counties in California to get arrested in.  They don't mess around.  If they have the evidence he did this, I would expect jail time to be part of the plea down there...  I don't see how SF could keep him after that.

Unless he has some prior arrests, doubt there's any jail time, he'll get probation and a fine. Pretty much every first time offender is going to get that.

If only there were red flags at the combine that could have given us any insight that this behavior could have been predicted...

But but but he has that “dawg” and “nastiness” we need.

I’d be more surprised if there weren’t at least 90 days. Like I said, this county is unique. I could very well be wrong, but Santa Clara volunteered for a pilot program to ramp up criminal penalties in California when all other participating counties were chosen by the legislature. Nothing is ever concrete in court, but I’m not expecting leniency here, even for a 1st timer.

What a fool. I was literally banging the table for this dude last year..good thing I’m not a GM!

I would say that his ignorant behavior at the hospital during the combine was prooobably the end for me

 Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t you a lawyer?

 

If I’m correct you may be the least argumentative lawyer I’ve ever come across. I think that’s a compliment.......maybe.

The million dollar question is "will he be cut?" 

For me the question is will he do jail time for having the brains of a Ruben sandwich.  That's about it.

Yes, and one that did criminal defense in Santa Clara County for a hot minute.  I try not to argue when not being paid to do so... so thanks! 

 

Also, I find the lawyers who speak in certainties about cases they aren't handling are usually the most incompetent.  I generally try not to do it unless I have a drink in my hand.
