Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice avoided major jail time yesterday.

Justin Fenton of The Baltimore Sun reports that an agreement has been made between Ray Rice and the prosecutors.

he Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office approved Rice’s acceptance into pretrial intervention Monday. Superior Court Judge Michael Donio then signed off on it today.

Upon successful completion of the program — which will be a minimum of one year — the third-degree charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury would be dismissed. The arrest would remain on his record, but with no conviction.

Rice was facing possible jail time after survelliance cameras caught him dragging his then girlfriend and now wife out of an elevator in a New Jersey casino. He allegedly punched her in the face after she struck him during a confrontation the two had.

The video footage surfaced later on TMZ.
