Judge orders wife of Deion Sanders to stay 500 yards from his home

The SportsXchange

A judge in McKinney, Texas, ordered custody of Deion Sanders' children to the former NFL player and instructed Sanders' wife to stay "a minimum of 500 yards" from their suburban Dallas mansion.

The court proceedings followed a series of public claims of verbal and domestic assault by Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, who had also been seeking a protective order. Her request was not granted.

The judge, Ray Wheless, ordered their Prospect, Texas, mansion and temporary custody of the couple's children go to Deion Sanders after more than three days of divorce hearings.

The ultimate fate of the $5.7 million home and custody of the children is to be determined.

The couple faced simple assault charges stemming from an altercation in their home on April 23. Their children filed police reports, claiming Pilar Sanders was the aggressor and Deion Sanders was acting in self defense.
