Jurors decide on Deion and Pilar custody case

Posted: Updated:
McKINNEY, Texas -

Jurors have decided that Deion Sanders will get primary custody of his two sons, but will share custody of his daughter.

The former Cowboys star and his estranged wife, Pilar, arrived at the Collin County Courthouse in McKinney for closing arguments Tuesday morning. The case went to jurors at about 3 p.m.

The couple had been battling over who was best suited to have primary custody of their three children as part of their highly contentious divorce case.

A slew of character witnesses vouched for each parent and throughout the case there was a lot of mudslinging and accusations.

Both sides weighed in on the case.

Deion said he was hopeful the jury would do the right thing.

He said jurors had to wade through "the mess, all the nonsense, the side stuff, all the steroid allegations, the abuse allegations to really say who's the good parent."

Pilar Sanders thanked everyone for praying for her and her children.

"I believe the children need both parents. Just like it takes two to conceive, it takes two to continue to raise. And hopefully that will be possible," she said.
