MLB: Saved! Marcell Ozuna’s charges for abuse and domestic violence drop

MLB Saved Marcell Ozunas charges for abuse and domestic violence

The race of Marcell ozuna as a player of MLB is slowed down because a few weeks ago it was accused of having committed assault and domestic violence against his wife Génesis. However, in recent hours it has become known that things would change their course a bit and that the charges for Ozuna would be reduced and the sentence he would receive would not be as heavy as was thought.

The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office reported that it has chosen not to proceed with the aggravated crime of abuse and strangulation against Marcell Ozuna, MLB player and Atlanta Braves.

According to a report by Alexis Stevens and Gabriel Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, as well as Fox 5 Atlanta, prosecutors are proceeding with minor charges for family violence and simple abuse.

The information mentions that as this is the way to proceed, the Dominican could face only one year in prison, a sentence that corresponds to both charges mentioned above.

The major league player was arrested last May at his home, since it was reported to the police department that he was carrying out acts against his wife, Génesis, whom he allegedly beat and strangled.

The Major League Baseball (MLB) suspended Marcell Ozuna once these facts were made known and the Atlanta Braves, the team he belongs to, is in an attempt to erase any connection with the player.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
