Uribe apparently cleared in shooting trial in D.R.
by Bob Timmermann
The lawyer for White Sox shortstop Juan Uribe believes that his client has been cleared of all criminal charges involving the shooting of a farmer in the Dominican Republic.
It seemed that the family of the man who was shot (who survived the shooting by the way) demanded money from Uribe, according to the linked report above from AP through ESPN. At first, the family demanded 30,000,000 pesos from Uribe. Later that amount was dropped to 300,000 pesos.
Were they planning to cut off two zeroes until Uribe gave them something?
"The Uribe family name has kind of been tarnished, but there's a God," Uribe said.
