The prosecutors of Atlantic County are not happy with how Ray Rice‘s domestic violence case is being handled.

According to TMZ, the prosecutors think that the former Ravens football player is getting off way too easy after what happened, and that the case is being handled “shamelessly” and “outrageously.”

The site reports:

Multiple prosecutors in the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office have spoken with TMZ — on condition of anonymity — and they say it is “virtually unheard of” for their office to allow someone like Ray Rice to avoid felony charges. What’s more … they say it all happened behind closed doors … behind their backs.

We previously reported … the grand jury indicted Rice for felony abuse after viewing the elevator video posted on TMZ Sports. Rice’s lawyer then petitioned for something called PTI — Pre-trial Intervention — which gives first time offenders a break … reducing the charge to a minor offense.

As one prosecutor said, “If there is violence or even a threat of violence by the perpetrator, prosecutors almost always object to a PTI and judges always follow the prosecutor’s wishes” … meaning the case gets tried as a felony.

Not so with Rice. We’re told the case did NOT go to the Domestic Violence Unit … which is where it should have gone.  Instead, it was micromanaged by Jim McClain, the prosecutor who runs the office and his number 2 prosecutor, Diane Ruberton. The Domestic Violence Unit was in the dark.

Another prosecutor said, “Never did I see a case this violent get PTI. It’s off the charts abnormal.”

After seeing the video, one prosecutor also commented that Rice treated his wife like a “pile of s**t, human garbage, dragging her out of the elevator.”

Meanwhile, despite all of the backlash towards Ray Rice, actress and former talk show host Mo’Nique has responded to the case by saying we should give him a second chance.

While speaking with Good Day New York, the Oscar winner told the host:

“A lot of people are saying get rid of him … in our worst moments we would want empathy.”

She also had some kind words for his wife Janay Rice as far as her forgiveness towards her husband.
