"This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy."
Solo allegedly struck bother her sister and nephew during a family gathering in Kirkland, Washington in June. According to Kirkland police spokesman Lt. Mike Murray, officers observed "visible injuries" on Solo's sister and nephew" at the time.
She has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
"While I understand that the public desires more information regarding the allegations against me, I continue to maintain my innocence against these charges," she wrote. "And, once all the facts come to light and the legal process is concluded, I am confident that I will be fully exonerated."
