Zac Stacy, a former National Football League (NFL) running back, has been sentenced to jail time and probation after attacking his ex-girlfriend, according to a report in Spain. The 26-year-old Stacy, who played for the St. Louis Rams and the New York Jets, was sentenced to a two-year jail term and two years of probation after pleading guilty to two counts of assault and battery.
The incident occurred in April 2018 when Stacy and his ex-girlfriend were arguing in a hotel room in St. Louis. According to court documents, Stacy pushed his ex-girlfriend against a wall and onto the bed, causing her to hit her head. He then grabbed her by the throat and began to choke her.
The victim was able to break free and call the police. Stacy was arrested and charged with two counts of assault and battery. He was released on bail and later pleaded guilty to both counts.
Stacy was sentenced to two years in jail and two years of probation. He was also ordered to undergo counseling and domestic violence classes. The judge also ordered Stacy to stay away from the victim and to pay a fine of $2,000.
Stacy’s NFL career was cut short due to his legal troubles. He was drafted by the Rams in 2013 and played three seasons with the team. He was traded to the Jets in 2016, but was released after one season.
Stacy’s legal troubles have been a major setback for his career. He is currently a free agent and it is unclear if any team will take a chance on him.
Stacy’s sentence serves as a reminder that domestic violence is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. The NFL has taken steps to address domestic violence in recent years, including mandatory education for players and increasing penalties for those found guilty of domestic violence.
Domestic violence is a major issue in the United States and around the world. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, one in three women and one in four men in the US have experienced physical violence at the hands of an intimate partner.
Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. It is important to remember that domestic violence is a crime and those found guilty of it should be held accountable.
