Unexpected fans heard that Rilah Ferrer alleged that Anthony got physically violent with her. Later, the police issued a warrant for his arrest. Now the news comes out that he got a pre-trial diversion. It means that essentially he’s under parole conditions. One of those involves staying away from the victim, Rilah.
Unexpected – Anthony didn’t get off scot-free after domestic violence charge
TV Shows Ace speculated about whether Anthony spends time with his daughter Malayah. That’s because after the allegations he abused Rilah, Anthony had restrictions. One of those included Anthony paying a $500 bond and also wear a monitoring device. The device made sure he stayed away from Rilah or her family. So, it’s not clear he sees his daughter at all.
At the time of his bond, apparently someone in the family helped out with the money. And now, Starcasm notes he needs to put more cash in terms of his pre-trial diversion. So often reliable, Asa Hawks of the outlet brings court results to fans of various reality TV shows. Asa got ahold of court records that reveal Unexpected‘s Anthony didn’t get off scot-free.
Conditions of pre-trial diversion for Rilah’s ex
The money side involves paying a “$3.15 insurance fee.” But, that’s not all. He also needs to attend courses. Quite a lot of cash payment’s needed for supervision. That comes to “$300.00 for 6 months or $450.00 for 9 months.” Plus, “The Batterer’s Intervention Program is a one-time fee of $100.00.” There’s a further “$76.30 Investigative Fee,” and $50.00 for the costs of the prosecution.
Perhaps Anthony won’t see his daughter Malayah. Part of his pre-trial agreement notes that he can’t return to the “victim’s address.” Nevertheless, there’s an added line about not having “violent contact” with Rilah. Possibly there’s some sort of supervised visits in the works. But, the Unexpected star faces a long list of things he must comply with.
Unexpected dad’s other conditions
It looks like Anthony faces a big task staying squeaky-clean. No alcohol or controlled substances is mentioned. Plus, he must work or study full time. Weapons of any kind require a formal request. Then, he must attend the “batterers intervention program,” undergo a “mental health evaluation,” and attend recommended counseling.
Initially, Unexpected fans heard he denied he assaulted Rilah. But, it looks like those claims never stood up. What do you think about the conditions of Anthony’s pre-trial diversion? Do you think he’ll abide by the rules? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
