Ray Rice Marries Janay Palmer One Day After Indictment For Assaulting Her

by at .  Updated at .

It seems at least one person has forgiven Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for assaulting his fiancee. Namely, his fiancee, Janay Palmer.

Rice and Palmer got married over the weekend, despite a whirlwind of negative press surrounding the couple after Rice was arrested for assaulting Palmer during an incident in an Atlantic City casino last month.

Always a master of romantic timing, Ray Rice allegedly assaulted Palmer the day after Valentine's Day and the couple walked down the aisle just one day later.

The 27-year-old was formally indicted for the attack.

Rice and Palmer put a rush on their nuptials after his arrest, with Friday night's ceremony being planned only "a couple weeks earlier" according to a source.

The aggravated assault charge for which Rice was indicted on Thursday is more serious than the simple assault-domestic violence charge for which Rice was originally arrested.

According to witnesses and security camera footage, Rice knocked Palmer unconscious during their altercation and proceeded to drag her from the casino.

Initially, both parties were arrested, but only Rice has been formally charged. If convicted, the Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion could face 3-5 years in prison.

Rice's lawyer recently issued a statement saying that both Rice and Palmer are in therapy and Palmer has no desire to press charges.

No word yet on when Rice will stand trial.
