The Johnson County District Attorney said he would not file any charges against the broad receiver of Kansas City Chiefs, Tyreek Hill, or Hill's fiancee Crystal Espinal. It was the latest off-the-field development for Hill, who had domestic violence in the past.
One day after the supreme prosecutor of Johnson County rejected the indictment. However, he believed that the son of Kansas City Chiefs & # 39; Tyreek Hill had been injured. The broad helper made a statement.
Hill, 25, said he loves and supports his family above all else.
"My son's health and happiness are our top priority," he said in the statement provided to the star. "I want to thank the Kansas City Chiefs, my lawyers, my agent and my union for their support.
"My focus is still on working hard to be the best person for my family and community that I can be and the best player to help our team win."
Hill lawyers released the statement and said their client has claimed from the beginning that he is "innocent of any crime". The lawyers – Trey Pettlon, Ryan Ginie and Julius Collins – also said Hill had worked with authorities.
"Unlike some media reports, Tyreek collaborated with law enforcement, renouncing its fifth amendment rights and answering questions from both the law enforcement and the DCF (Child and Family Affairs)," the lawyers said in the release. "Unfortunately, due to confidentiality laws, as much as he wishes, he can not comment on certain allegations." In mid-March, news had surfaced that police from Overland Park had filed two reports at Hill's Johnson County home for the battery and the other for child abuse and neglect. The police reports of March 5 and 14 both reported a youth.
Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe held a press conference Wednesday and announced that the criminal investigation was underway between Hill and his fiancé Crystal Espinal, the boy's mother, who is pregnant with twins closed, and he would not file any charges.
But Howe said he actually believes a crime has taken place. He said he could not prove who committed him.
"We are very concerned about this situation and worried about the health and well-being of the child," Howe said.
DCF has a permanent child protection case focused on the child, Howe said.
The Star reported last Thursday that Hill's 3-year-old son had recently been taken out of the care of Hill and his fiancé Espinal. It is not clear when the boy was removed or with whom he now lives.
"I know that DCF is involved, and I let DCF handle how they handle it, which is not the case in public," Howe said. "What I can assure the public is that he is safe."
