Leroy Hill has first hearing in domestic violence case

Published on May 19, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill appeared in Issaquah Municipal Court on Tuesday morning for a charge related to a domestic violence incident.

Hill faces a misdemeanor assault charge related to the April 10 incident. During a brief appearance, the court scheduled the next pre-trial hearing for June 11.

Issaquah Police arrested Hill after a late-night domestic incident at his Talus home. Officers said a dispute occurred between Hill and his then-girlfriend. Police said the woman had marks and injuries consistent with assault; she told police Hill caused the injuries.

City Prosecutor Lynn Moberly asked the court to keep a no-contact order in place between Hill and the victim, although the victim had called for the order to be lifted.

“I think that he’s a potential danger to her, and I would ask at this time that the court not lift the no-contact order,” Moberly said.

The prosecutor said the victim had told police Hill had attacked her in the past. Moberly said the past incidents included a dispute when Hill held the victim down on a bed and “crushed her throat.”

The victim did not appear in court due to what Domestic Violence Advocate Kim Leyton described as a scheduling conflict. Leyton said the victim feels the no-contact order to be unnecessary.

“In her words, she feels that she can communicate, quote, effectively and peacefully with” Hill, Leyton said.

Hill and the woman had a three-year relationship prior to the Talus incident.

Judge N. Scott Stewart kept the no-contact order in place.

The domestic violence incident occurred less than a month after Hill pleaded guilty to misdemeanor marijuana possession in Georgia.

The appearance attracted attention to the usually sleepy city courtroom — the same space used as the Issaquah City Council Chambers. Stewart limited cameras in the courtroom to a single still and video camera. Court Administrator Lynne Jacobs said the decision marked the first so-called media order in the five-year history of the court.
