Deion Sanders Is In Trouble With The Law Due To His Wife

Lawyer Says His Wife's Arrest Was A Set Up, But Was It...

It pains me to report this, but NFL great, Deion Sanders may be in trouble with the law, regarding his acrimonious divorce from wife, Pilar Sanders, which devolved into domestic violence, when she and her friend Dee Boswell physically attacked him in his bedroom. Pilar's lawyer is claiming a set up in her arrest, but based on accepted facts of the case, Pilar and Boswell beat Sanders, who showed restraint in not hitting them back.

Just because you are the woman does not mean you can be the aggressor and hit men. Pilar should not have attacked her husband. Boswell should not have either. However, police seek to charge Sanders for throwing a mobile phone outside his home that Pilar's friend Boswell held up trying to film him, as they beat him up. It is illegal to film someone in their home, especially their bedroom, without their permission.

It is understandable that Pilar is angry that Deion is now dating Babyface's ex-wife, Tracey Edmonds, who really does not belong in the picture, but she has to restrain herself. Violence is not the answer to this problem. Couples need to express their anger constructively, not through acts of violence. It saddens me to see this happening to the Sanders, but they have to find a positive way to fix this situation, before anyone else gets hurt.

Their children need their love and support. Living in a hostile environment is bound to break their hearts. The Sanders three children are "struggling in school and need counseling" according to the preteen kids' attorney, who was appointed by the court. The Sanders have to pull it together for the sake of their kids.  They need to find a way to forgive each other and amicably work things out. Most of all, seek God's guidance and grace through prayer.
