Earlier this week, two domestic violence charges were dropped against Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, involving his ex-girlfriend, Jen Harley, learned TMZ. The media claims that the authorities have abandoned the criminal threats and brandished a weapon.
Speaking to journalists on page six, Ortiz-Magro’s lawyer Scott Leemon said that the charges and the stories surrounding Ortiz-Magro’s arrest were both “exaggerated and factually incorrect” . His lawyer added that after the deliberation, the city prosecutor agreed and decided to drop the above charges. Two Charges Dropped In Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s Domestic Abuse Case
They hope that the same will be done for the other charges as well. Harley is represented by famed lawyer Lisa Bloom, who has yet to comment publicly on the new developments.
In October, the 34-year-old man was arrested by authorities for allegedly hitting his girlfriend, resisting arrest and also chasing after her while brandishing a knife. Police have charged Ronnie with a number of crimes, approximately seven counts of torts.
Regardless, Ronnie is still facing more, including two counts of arrest resistance, false imprisonment, endangerment of children and domestic violence. In January of this year, the couple were involved in another altercation of domestic violence.
Ronnie and his lawyer argued that Harley was in fact aggressive. Bloom told Page Six at one point that she would fight for her client’s rights in court and that they would win. Lisa added that Harley was a “victim of domestic violence”.
The former partners canceled their relationship in September 2019 after a long and passionate romance, composed of many breakups and reunions.
They have a one-year-old daughter named Ariana Sky. For months, rumors persisted that Ronnie and Jennifer were finally over for good after years of intermittent dating in a swirling romance. However, the couple have participated in many fights, and even Jersey Shore actors have repeatedly expressed that they probably shouldn’t be together anymore.
