Statement from Adrian Peterson’s Attorney Rusty Hardin:

Adrian Peterson did not have a foundation credit card and did not use the foundation’s funds for personal expenses,” Hardin said in a statement.  “There is no question that prior to 2011, issues existed with the administration of Adrian’s foundation.  When this was brought to his attention, Adrian made changes to the organization and brought in new leadership.

Sports Gossip Adrian PetersonSince that time, Adrian and his foundation have given more than $1.4 million to many worthy causes, including many to organizations that benefit children.  Importantly, Adrian has seen fit to contribute over $1 million of his own funds to this charitable work.  Adrian and his family are understandably proud of the foundation and the good work that it has done and continues to do.

We are in the unfortunate position that today, like so many other days, there are more stories about Adrian, fueled by nothing more than his fame.  Given the multitude of allegations that inevitably flow against a public figure, we will no longer try to respond to each and every new unfounded charge.  We will simply hold our comments for the trial that Adrian is entitled to in a forum that has rules and requirements of proof.

The Montgomery DA’s office has issued a statement about  Minnesota Vikings running back,  Adrian Peterson’s felony child abuse indictment.  A spokesperson for the DA’s office acknowledged the use of  discipline,  presumably some physical force, however, in Adrian Peterson’s case…they reportedly  felt that  to whip his child with a tree branch exceeded “reasonable discipline.”

The DA says the grand jury heard the case for several weeks before making it’s decision.

Adrian Peterson’s attorney Rusty Hardin released the following statement about the case:  “Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened.”

If convicted on the felony charge…Peterson could serve up to two years behind bars and would most likely end his career in the NFL….
