Lot of sexual assault cases are coming to the light lately.
Maybe it is the heat?
The latest to get caught up is former NBA Player Steve Francis who is being accused of being a bit to touchy feely with a young woman on his record label.
TMZ has the details.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Francis allegedly “groped” a 20-year-old woman through her clothing in May 2010 … and the woman immediately went to the cops to file a complaint.
The alleged victim tells TMZ … she is a singer who was signed to Steve’s record label and on the day of the alleged incident, she had met Steve at an office to discuss her contract.
The woman, Shauna Simien, tells us the “groping” while the two were talking outside, when Francis reached down and grabbed her between the legs.
Simien claims she screamed for him to stop — and that’s when a few of her friends, whom she brought along for protection, rushed over to break things up.
It should be noted that the police haven’t charged Stevie Franchise with anything. The case is officially “open” and Miss Simien is threatening to sue the district attorney’s office if Francis is not charged.
Lesson to be learned here is to keep your hands to yourself fellas even if she is on your label, you don’t want that headache.
Our friend Stiletto Jill has tracked down a video and some pics of Miss Simien, whose rap name is Shawna Pat. Did you know Steve Francis was married? Neither did I.
