The Santa Clara district attorney announced Tuesday that former 49ers CB Tramaine Brock has been charged with felony domestic violence and misdemeanor child endangerment.
Brock is facing up to five years in prison if convicted.
Brock is accused of punching his girlfriend in the face and attempting to strangle her multiple times, including once as she was holding their 1-year-old child.
Brock will be arraigned Tuesday, at 1:30 p.m. in the Hall of Justice, in San Jose
It’s been a while since there was an update regarding Brock and his pending legal issues.
Jason Cole of B/R previously reported that several NFL teams were keeping tabs on Brock in the event that district attorney in Santa Clara, California does not pursue charges against him for the domestic violence incident that led to him being released back in April.
Sources told Cole that Brock have been in line to make as much as $10-$11 million per year in a new contract, but his football career seems like the least of his concerns right now.
In regards to the incident, police officers were called to domestic-violence report at Brock’s home and found a woman he is dating with “visible injuries.”
Brock was later released from jail after posting bond and the 49ers wasted little time in moving on from him.
Brock, 28, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Belhaven College back in 2010. He was in the final year of his five-year, $17.323 million contract and set to make a base salary of $3.1 million for the 2017 season when the 49ers cut him in a move that freed up $3.55 million of available cap space.
In 2016, Brock appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 59 tackles, no sacks, one interception, a forced fumble and 14 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 23 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.
