New Jersey lawmakers seek review of Ray Rice case

The Associated Press

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) The president of the New Jersey state Senate is calling for a review of the decision to let former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice into a program to allow him to keep his record clean after he was accused of assaulting his then-fiancee.

Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney says the state should look into how Rice's case was handled and into the criteria for getting into the pretrial intervention program. His request comes a day after the revelation of a video showing Rice punching his fiancee in the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. Rice and the woman have since married.

The Ravens cut Rice on Monday. The NFL suspended him indefinitely after the video was made public that day.

Rice has said his actions were "inexcusable."
