A positive has emerged in the on-going issues of Allen Iverson’s post-playing career. His ex-wife Tawanna Iverson, had filed documents alleging that he had abducted their children after taking them on vacation, but now the kids have been returned.
The Sixers legend showed up to court and explained to the judge that the kids were simply staying with him, and his ex could have came to visit or pick up the children at any time. Initially, Juwanna filed for Ivy to return the kids, and for the judge to consider throwing him in jail, but after hearing Iverson’s testimony the judge decided no further action was required. TMZ had the story:
Allen appeared in Fulton County court in Georgia last Wednesday and told the judge his ex-wife had full access to their kids during their stay at the hotel ... and therefore he wasn't doing anything wrong. We're told Tawanna also testified that she could have picked up the children from Allen but didn't want to drive 45 minutes to his location.
After A.I.'s testimony, the judge decided the former Philadelphia 76ers star didn't deserve to be thrown in jail -- despite his ex-wife's request before the hearing. The kids -- ranging from ages 3 to 16 -- were returned to their mother following the hearing.
