Richard Sherman shows support for Reuben Foster during DV case

Richard Sherman shows support for Reuben Foster during DV case

Two police officers and a motorist who gave Ennis his phone to call 911 took the stand Thursday.

Foster locked her out of the house, Ennis said, before she went to one of the back doors and kicked it in.

Ennis replied "No sir", then broke down in tears. During her testimony, Ennis admitted that she took Foster's money and some jewelry that had been stored in a safety deposit box. "I told him, 'I'm going to f-k your s-t up, '" Ennis said.

"It was all a money scheme", Ennis said. Ennis said. "I really wanted to kill him".

In court, Ennis denied that she was being offered money to recant her story, and maintained the incident was an effort to ruin Foster's career in retaliation for breaking up with her, according to Bay Area News Group. After almost two hours of testimony, Ennis left the courtroom in tears with her attorney and did not speak to reporters.

Although Ennis' lawyer had advised her not to take the stand, the ex-girlfriend chose to testify anyway, because she wanted to apologize to Foster.

"I didn't get the impression she was trying to help Foster", said Steven Clark, a criminal-defense attorney and prosecutor who watched the testimony from the courtroom gallery and found Ennis's testimony credible. Three calls to 911 were made that morning.

When she initially said she'd lied about Foster, she said she had received the injuries in a fight outside a bar in San Francisco.

Spread Of Ebola In Congo A 'Game Changer'
The World Health Organization held an emergency meeting on Friday and called the risk to the public in Congo "very high". The virus is transmitted to human through contact with wild animals and can then be passed from person to person.

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Nona Klippen announced at the end of the five-hour hearing - highlighted by the grueling and unusual testimony from Ennis - that she would delay her decision on whether to send the case to trial by a week. The detective also said he didn't know about Ennis' similar situation in Louisiana.

According to Mercury News reporter Cam Inman, she was arrested for doing the same thing with another man in 2011. He also said that Ennis is claiming to have had a 15-minute, physical fight with a woman on February 10 but didn't have very many marks on her hands on February 11.

As reported by the Sacramento Bee, Ennis is believed to have first recanted the story just days after the incident, but charges were still filed against Foster in April.

The 49ers drafted Foster 31st overall previous year after questions about his health and character caused him to drop from being a possible top 10 pick.

There's also the matter of her injuries.

The domestic violence charge is the most serious, but Foster is also awaiting a verdict on a gun charge, which could potentially be dismissed to a misdemeanor.

Foster, wearing a dark blue suit and pink shirt, sat next to Bentley during the proceeding and mostly was silent and still. Los Gatos police officer Katrina Freeman, who interacted with Ennis and Foster on the February 11 day of the incident, provided the last testimony.
