Reuben Foster’s Ex-Girlfriend To Testify Thursday

Reuben Foster‘s ex-girlfriend is prepared to recant her allegations against the 49ers linebacker in court on Thursday, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

Elissa Ennis had previously maintained that Foster hit her 10 times and dragged her down stairs, but changed her story in late April, indicating that her injuries were the result of a fight with another woman. Ennis suffered a swollen lip and ruptured eardrum as a result of said fight, and Foster was subsequently charged with three felonies. Foster pleaded not guilty to all charges, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.

The Santa Clara Count District Attorney’s office had previously vowed to forge ahead with its original charges, but that course of action would presumably become much more difficult if its victim publicly retracts her claims against Foster. The 49ers, for their part, have been adamant that if the allegations are proven true, Foster will be quickly released.

Per Barrows, Foster could still be in hot water in given that he was in possession of an assault rifle, and prosecutors could choose to go forward with gun charges even if the domestic violence charges are dismissed. However, a judge may also choose to reduce those gun charges from a felony to a misdemeanor.

        This is a guy who got kicked out of the combine for losing his cool while waiting for medical testing for his future career. Way easier to believe he paid her off than she just decided to make it up

          Yea because it’s way easier to assume than to know the truth right?People are ignorant. Always assuming crap without knowing tb truth. There is no such thing as innocent until proven guilt anymore. It’s guilt, prosecute and hang unless proven innocent and even when proven innocent sometimes people still want to believe they are guilty

    A woman scorned is a dangerous thing. Ever sat in a divorce court? And why doesn’t he have a permit for his weapon? I see an NRA endorsement opportunity…..

    We will never know the actual truth of what really happened..Until proven otherwise, Foster shouldn’t have his career ruined over allegations. However, if he is proven guilty, then he should NEVER step onto an NFL field again…plain and simple..

    Regardless though, even if he is proven innocent, the 49ers need to get Foster some form of counseling, and they need to provide this young man with a stable and structured environment moving forward …Hopefully, with their efforts, and a concerted effort and want to change and mature from Foster, hisself, both parties can combine to keep Foster out of trouble, eventually making him a renewed man, and a role model for troubled youth. Showing kids, it is never too late to change your ways, regardless of your previous indiscretions…

    And keep in mind, this is all is he is proven innocent..If guilty, let the jail system reform Foster, and from there good luck to him..

      I am open to the possibility that some players are not just “scum bags” but actually mentally ill and struggling to function and cope with life in healthy ways because they are not being treated. If foster is found guilty the criminal justice system will certainly fail to reform him (especially if there is an underlying mental illness that is going untreated) and he will begin a lifelong drain on the economy as he continues to have trouble with following laws and keeping jobs. I firmly believe restoring a persons mental health should be the main focus of any real rehabilitation efforts or else those efforts will fail to break the cycle of failure and rejection that all people with untreated mental health issues tend to endure.
