The Vikings star was released on $15,000 for the child abuse charge, but prosecutors want his bail revoked for the marijuana use. No action can be taken on the bond, or bail, before a hearing, and a hearing has yet to be scheduled. Peterson had his first hearing Wednesday for the child abuse charge, and is expected to plead not guilty. If convicted in that case, Peterson can face 6 months to 2 years in prison. Being placed on probation is a possibility since he is a first time offender. He may also face discipline from the NFL, including a possible 6 week suspension.
A.D was place on the exempt list September 17th, and it is highly unlikely that he'll play the rest of the season. He is banned from all team activities until the case is resolved, which doesn't seem to be any time soon. This has put his future with the Vikings in question, with him set to make $12.75 million in 2015. Minnesota may not find that amount worth it for a star that has turned in to a question mark.
