KDKA.com (click link for video) in Pittsburgh are claiming they know what Ben Roethlisberger said to police immediately after the alleged sexual assault. Here is his version of the story allegedly.
When Roethlisberger talked to police the night of the event he told them there was no sexual intercourse. He did have sexual contact with the woman but it was not consummated. He said he did not force himself on the woman, but she did fall and hit her head.
Also it is being reported that Roethlisberger’s lawyers have not agreed to a DNA sample even though the police have asked for it.
KDKA-TV says the the police are attempting to build strong case against Roethlisberger before bringing it to the D.A.
I am not proclaiming Ben’s guilt or innocence, but it wasn’t a very smart move on his part to talk to the police. When you are being accused of something very serious it is better to get a lawyer even if you are 100% innocent because your words can be used against you.
I call it “Kobe Bryant” disease where a superstar athlete thinks he can get himself out of a situation because he is a star. As Kobe learned that normally will cause more harm than good.
If you take the statement that Ben allegedly made at face value he basically implicates himself in the crime. The reason you don’t hear the police saying the word “rape” in this partcular case is because it doesn’t appear it got to that point. Something happened that didn’t allow sex to take place. That is the million dollar question what happened between the time the sexual contact started and she bumped her head. What exactly were they doing?
By Ben admitting that something sexual took place if anything that makes the accuser story more legitimate because now we know she isn’t lying outright.
