It seems as though Big Ben’s accuser encouraged officials to bring the sexual assault case against the Steelers’ quarterback to a halt because of the excess media attention she has been receiving – but she is still standing by her story (can you say, “confused?”).
The accuser’s lawyer sent a letter on her behalf to Fred Bright, the District Attorney, on March 17th which included the statement:
“a criminal trial would be a very intrusive personal experience … given the extraordinary media attention that would be inevitable.”
The letter then goes on to say:
This morning it was announced by the D.A. that no criminal charges would be filed against Roethlisberger… Now I’m not implying anything, but I think every pro athlete needs to have Ben’s legal team on speed dial.
