Billy Graham's Daughter Gets Probation in Domestic Abuse Case
NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – Evangelist Billy Graham's daughter must complete a year of probation and counseling before her domestic abuse charge can be dropped, according to court documents filed Monday.
Virginia Graham Foreman, 59, spent a night in jail after a July 1 confrontation with her husband outside a shopping center. She was charged with misdemeanor domestic abuse and released the next day.
Foreman, of DeLeon Springs, agreed to undergo counseling, check in monthly while on probation and not possess a firearm or other weapon, according to the court documents. She must also pay about $100 in court fees.
The contents of the documents were reported by The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Three witnesses told police that Foreman pushed her husband and grabbed him by the throat, authorities said.
The judge who presided over Foreman's first court appearance said Chad Foreman told police that witnesses had "just misunderstood what was going on between them."
Billy Graham, 87, held his last crusade in New York in June.
