Theballerlife.com has learned that Deion Sanders’ ex-wife Pilar Sanders was sentenced Tuesday to seven days in Collin County Jail on a contempt-of-court charge and lost all visitation rights to her three children.
The ex-wife of NFL broadcaster and Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders was taken into custody after a hearing on several motions by the athlete’s attorneys.
Attorney Larry Boyd sought a temporary injunction related to a defamation suit filed last month over multiple social media posts and videos from Pilar Sanders alleging abuse, assault and attempted murder. Family law attorney Rick Robertson filed two motions related to enforcing and modifying the couple’s divorce decree finalized last year.
As the bailiff was taking her into custody, 40-year-old Pilar Sanders objected to the entire proceeding.
She appeared in court with no attorney, saying several times that she was taking part only under threat, duress and coercion. During the hearing, she cited multiple legal statutes, saying she did not recognize the jurisdiction of the court.
“I am not a part of the United States corporation,” she told the court.
When asked to give her name after she took the stand, she said she did not have a name. “I am Pilar Sanders Love El Dey Allodial Moorish American,” she testified.
At the end of the hearing, District Judge Ray Wheless found that Pilar Sanders had violated the visitation schedule that was part of the divorce decree. He found that she failed to return the couple’s children when she was supposed to and took possession of them when she shouldn’t have. He ordered her to be jailed 30 days, but then suspended and probated that sentence for one year. Still, as part of the probation, he ordered her to serve a week in the county lockup.
Her ex-husband testified that she violated the visitation schedule at least 16 times. In one instance, he testified, she kept the children more than a week longer than the schedule allowed. He said he had to retain an attorney to get them back.
