Always innocent until proven guilty on both sides. The 49ers only have one side of the story, but according to ESPN they seem to believe that Crabtree was targeted by the woman who is accusing him of rape.
One well-placed San Francisco 49ers source said he “highly, highly doubted” that San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree will be charged in the events that led to an investigation of sexual assault last week.
A second female witness backed up Crabtree’s version of the events to police, according to the source.
The team thought the timing of the announcement of the investigation, coming Friday night, was suspicious.
The 49ers insist that the events were not a distraction to the team, and it was just another reminder that players can be targets and they have to be careful.
I would suggest everyone wait until the police comes out with a full report before judging anyone.
