Ray McDonald will not be charged with domestic violence


The 49ers have taken plenty of criticism as they played defensive tackle Ray McDonald throughout the season following allegations of domestic violence.

Today, that decision can be justified.

According to Shelley Smith of ESPN, the Santa Clara County district attorney has declined to file charges against McDonald because of a lack of evidence.

That was the expected outcome after a long investigation, though the 49ers do not come out of this thing looking completely clean.

The involvement of a San Jose police officer who worked off duty for the 49ers created an unusual and uncomfortable conflict of interest in the case.

While other players such as Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy have been held out with pay while the league waits/waited for their legal cases to play out, there’s nothing to play out with McDonald.
