Judge Dismisses Charges Against 49ers Reuben Foster

A judge ruled that there was insufficient evidence to proceed with domestic violence charges against Reuben Foster. Foster no longer faces those charges, seemingly clearing way for his return to the 49ers.

On Thursday morning at the Hall of Justice in San Jose, Foster appeared in court for the hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to warrant moving forward with a trial.

Foster’s charge of possession of assault weapon was reduced to misdemeanor. Foster has not taken part in any of the team’s offseason program since the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office filed the formal charges in April. The 49ers opened organized team activities on Monday. The DA's office last week attempted to present evidence in court to justify moving forward to the trial phase with Foster. However, the accuser, Foster’s former girlfriend, recanted her initial statements to policy and gave testimony that supported Foster's defense. Photo Credit: Associated Press
