Obnoxious Sports meets Drug Dealers And Killers Strike Again……Jurors took less than four hours to clear New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose and two pals of gang rape claims in a civil lawsuit brought by a former girlfriend of the NBA star.
After nearly three weeks of often graphic testimony, the six women and two men rejected the 30-year-old accuser’s allegation that the three men raped her in her apartment while she was too drunk to consent.
They were cleared of all three claims of sexual battery, battery and trespass.
Rose kept his head down and hands clasped as the verdict was read. His attorney, Mark Baute, shook Rose’s hand after each “no” verdict, and the pair hugged at the end.
Rose’s accuser, who was suing for $21.5 million, kept her head buried in her hands as if praying the entire time.
At the courthouse, the hoops star declined to comment, saying only that he’s “focused on the season.”
In a statement, he expressed gratitude for the verdict, and said he’s eager to put the trial behind him.
“It was important to prove I did not do what I was accused of, even if it meant publicly sharing very private details about my personal life,” he said.
Not often an African American Man can walk out of a courtroom whe accused of a serious crime. Glad to see justice prevail in Derrick Rose’s favor.
