Former NFL player Zac Stacy appeared in court in Orlando for bond hearing.
The former Jets player is accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend in front of their 5-month-old son in a disturbing video. Stacy, who retired from the NFL in 2017, faces charges of aggravated battery and criminal mischief.
His ex-girlfriend, Kristin Evans, delivered an emotional plea in court asking for the judge to increas Stacy’s bond.
“I am afraid for my safety and my children’s safety,” she said.
Evans also said she’s suffering “serious and likely permanent” injuries sustained in the attack, according to TMZ.
Stacy’s defense lawyer says that since he has cooperated after being arrested, his bond should not be changed. Prosecutors argued that Stacy is ‘dangerous’ and ‘violent’ and should be placed on home confinement.
As it turned out, Kristin did not get what she wanted as the judge decided to not increase Stacy’s bond. He also ordered Stacy to not return to Florida except for court hearings and he must reside at the Alabama address.
He is to have zero contact with Kristin Evans whatsoever.
