The terrible part is there are a lot of women out here making up lies on men. Start sending women to prison for making up lies and destroying men lives, and then maybe they will stop.

The case was thrown out!

The judge is no nonsense. The DA's office if stupid.

Foster just needs to chill, and secure his job.

That chick is bad news.

SAN JOSE - The domestic violence case against 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster will not go to trial, Santa Clara County Judge Nona Klippen announced Wednesday afternoon, and Foster will rejoin his teammates for practice on Thursday.

Klippen dismissed two charges against Foster: domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury and forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime. The charge of possession of an assault weapon was reduced to a misdemeanor.

Foster, 24, has not been allowed to take part in team activities while his case was ongoing. That is no longer the case, general manager John Lynch said in a statement issued quickly after the ruling.

Lynch also added an air of caution for the former first-round pick who has been the subject of several unsavory story lines in the last year and a half: "It has been made clear to Reuben that his place on this team is one that must continue to be earned," he said. "We will continue to monitor the remaining misdemeanor charge.”

As has been the case following previous hearings, Foster did not speak with reporters before ducking into a car and driving off. However, he did smile and give a thumbs-up signal as he walked from the courthouse on Wednesday.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office issued its own statement saying it was disappointed in the ruling "because the evidence demonstrated that Mr. Foster seriously hurt his girlfriend." The statement noted that recantations are common in domestic violence cases. "Some are scared, some feel guilty, some are coerced, some need money. Whatever the cause, we move forward on cases when victims falsely recant because we know that if we don't more victims will be hurt. Our commitment to domestic violence survivors is unwavering."

Klippen, however, said the evidence she heard at last week's preliminary hearing didn't merit moving it forward.

She said that while Foster's ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, sounded distraught in her first call to 911, nine minutes later she was far more composed. That fits Ennis' testimony that she stood at the end of Foster's driveway on the morning of Feb. 11 and calculated how she would proceed. Klippen also noted that the motorist who allowed her to use his cellphone described her as "really calm" and was not overly concerned about a red mark he observed on her face.

Klippen seemed especially skeptical about Ennis' initial report that Foster hit her 10 times with a closed fist. She noted that Ennis is a "slight young woman weighing probably 110 pounds." She had injuries when police arrived, but "nothing to suggest she had been punched in the face 10 times by the defendant, who is a professional football player," Klippen said.

Last week, Ennis, 28, testified for two hours, saying multiple times that Foster didn't hit her on that morning and that she concocted the first story she told police because she was furious that he was going to end their relationship.

"I wanted him to go down," she said. "I was pissed."

Ennis said it was all a scheme geared toward suing Foster, whom she started dating when he was at Alabama. She also admitted to falsely accusing another ex-boyfriend of domestic violence as well as stealing Foster's money, his designer clothing and jewelry — including more than $8,000 in cash and two Rolex watches — when she left his Los Gatos home and went back to her mother's home in Louisiana. She has since returned the money but still has the jewelry, she said.

The injuries that had police concerned when they arrived at Foster's home on Feb. 11, she said, were instead suffered during a road-rage-inspired fight with another woman in San Francisco one day earlier.

Neither the district attorney's office nor police seemed to believe that story, and Klippen noted Ennis' ever-changing story left doubts about how the injuries occurred. While there's a 22-second video clip of Ennis brawling with a woman, the original video, which appeared on Instagram, has been taken down. Therefore it's impossible to tell when and where it was taken.

Klippen, however, said Ennis' testimony that she was enraged over the end of their relationship was believable. She noted that she was living in a big house in Los Gatos, drove a Corvette she didn't pay for and took trips to the Super Bowl.

"There is a ring of truth to her testimony that she was really unhappy this lifestyle was coming to an end," Klippen said.

While the rest of the 49ers began OTA practices this week, Foster has stayed away from the team facility while the case is ongoing. It's clear, however, that he will be welcomed back this week. Teammates Adrian Colbert and Jaquiski Tartt arrived to court with Foster on Wednesday in a show of support. Tartt and cornerback Richard Sherman had been on hand for one of Foster's earlier court dates.

Foster also is facing a misdemeanor marijuana charge in Alabama and is likely to face some sort of suspension from the NFL this season because of his multiple run-ins with the law. His next court date in Alabama is June 20.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers are easing linebacker Reuben Foster back into the system after he missed the start of the offseason program while dealing with a domestic violence case that was eventually dropped.

Foster was not allowed to participate in the offseason program until a judge ruled last week that he wouldn't have to stand trial on domestic violence charges. The judge determined there was no evidence that Foster ever hit his ex-girlfriend.

Foster rejoined the Niners last Thursday but has been held out of team drills as he gets back into form after missing more than five weeks of the offseason program while waiting for his case to be resolved.

He took part in individual drills during organized team activities but spent the time during team drills doing conditioning or watching teammates.

"Getting him up to speed won't take as long," defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said. "I can promise you that when he gets out there, he'll be like a fireball. It will be cool to see."

Foster had a trying offseason following an arrest in February on charges of beating up his girlfriend. He was charged in April with felony domestic violence, forcefully attempting to dissuade a witness and felony possession of an assault weapon.

That led to the decision by the 49ers to keep him away from the offseason program and general manager John Lynch said Foster would be cut if it was proven he hit his girlfriend.

But the case quickly fell apart. The accuser, Elissa Ennis, recanted her accusations two days after telling police she was hit in the head eight to 10 times by Foster. She testified at a preliminary hearing earlier this month that the injuries were caused by a fight with another woman and she gave prosecutors video of that fight. She said she lied initially because she wanted retribution after Foster tried to end their relationship.


Judge Nona Klippen said recantations aren't uncommon in domestic violence cases but said there was no supporting evidence in this case that Foster had attacked Ennis and dropped the domestic violence charges. Foster still faces a misdemeanor weapons charge for having a Sig Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle in his home that was legally registered in Alabama.

Foster also had a misdemeanor marijuana case dismissed in Alabama this month when he completed a pretrial diversion program.

"Reuben is in a good spot right now," 49ers defensive assistant Johnny Holland said. "He's been through a lot in the offseason. Going through court cases you never know what's going to happen. He still has a long road to go but he's excited to be back out here. He's family. We wanted to keep him encouraged while he was away and we welcomed him back."

The 49ers drafted Foster 31st overall last year after questions about his health and character caused him to drop from being a possible top 10 pick.

Foster delivered on the field, ranking second on the team with 72 tackles despite being limited to 10 games as a rookie because of injuries. He is being counted on now to be a key part of San Francisco's defensive future.

"For the 10 games he played in, I thought he was outstanding," Holland said. "His ceiling is very high. He's going to be better this year. We're excited to have him back and hopefully he can come back at full speed and his health is not a factor and he can be an outstanding football player."
