“I was hit, slapped, literally picked up and thrown in my TV, then (he) picked me up and slammed me against my son’s inflatable seat by the throat. “He’s violent to me. I’m scared for my safety and the safety of my children,” Kristin Evans told 9th Circuit judge Mark S. Blechman.
In a joint petition filed by the state attorney’s office and Evans on November 19, Evans said she specifically feared for her life.
Evans asked the court to increase Stacy’s bond and place him under house arrest, a request which Blechman ultimately refused.
Evans posted a graphic video of the incident on his Instagram account and publicly called on the NFL to “confront the reality that players have suffered from PTSD since their time playing professional football.”
CNN contacted the NFL.
Evans says she intended to testify at Stacy’s initial court appearance on Nov. 19, but was unable to do so after the hearing began earlier than scheduled, according to the joint motion filed the same day asking that she be allowed to testify and that the judge reconsider the amount of the bond. .
In a first court appearance on Nov. 19, a judge set the bond at $ 10,150 and ordered Stacy to have no contact with the victim and to hand over his passport and guns, according to CNN affiliate WESH. Stacy was charged with aggravated battery (major bodily harm) and criminal mischief, court records show. Stacy was released from the Orange County jail over the weekend, Blechman said Wednesday during the hearing.
Evans said on Wednesday that because Stacy was released on bail over the weekend, she was too scared to go home.
“My injuries from this incident are serious and probably permanent from what I have been told,” she said without specifying.
Luka said in proceedings on Wednesday that the NFL player had moved to Alabama where he made his home with his mother or brother. Luka told the court he no longer believed that Stacy, now residing two states away from Evans, posed a threat to her.
Stacy told the judge there were no guns inside that house. The judge said that a condition of his bond was that he could not be in the presence of a firearm. It was revealed that Stacy intended to participate in a 30-day hospital treatment program and then return home to live with her mother or brother.
Stacy’s attorney, Thomas Luka, told CNN on Wednesday that the inpatient treatment program he would enroll in on December 1 was about mental health.
“He has had persistent mental health issues for several years. This is an intensive inpatient treatment program for mental health issues,” Luka said over the phone.
The judge reminded Stacy that an important condition of his bond is that he has “absolutely no contact” with the victim, including through members of his family.
Although Blechman rejected Evan’s request to increase Stacy’s bail and would not order home confinement, he added a condition to the former NFL player’s bond that he could no longer enter. in the state of Florida unless you are traveling for a court appearance. Blechman cited Stacy’s willingness to appear in court on Wednesday morning as the reason for rejecting Evan’s request.
Luka said he and his client were awaiting information about the charges the state attorney’s office would bring against Stacy. No arraignment date has yet been set.
