The years continue to add up for former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III. Prosecutors officially delivered the five charges against Ruggs at the hearing Wednesday, and stated afterwards that the former Raiders player could be locked behind bars for more than 50 years if he’s convicted on all counts.
Ruggs did not show up to the hearing, according to TMZ Sports, his attorneys appeared for him.
Ruggs’ attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, cited state privacy law and convinced a judge to at least temporarily block access to Ruggs’ and his girlfriends medical records. The judge set a Dec. 8 hearing to decide if their medical records must be turned over to police and prosecutors.
