NBA Star Vindicated In Sex Assault Trial
NBA star Derrick Rose was found NOT guilty Wednesday in his federal gang rape trial – and is off the hook for more than $20 million in damages.
A jury of six women and two men spent Wednesday deliberating on the contentious case before announcing their unanimous decision, capping off a two week trial that revealed graphic details about the New York Knick star’s sex life.
Rose, along with friends Ryan Allen and Randall Hampton, were cleared of charges of sexual battery, trespassing and battery inside Los Angeles Federal Court.
The accuser sued Rose for $21 million after she said he and the two friends broke into her apartment three years ago and took turns raping her while she was unconscious.
Rose has maintained that the sex was consensual, and her suit was a money grab after he stopped speaking to her and wouldn’t reimburse her for sex toys.
The newly-minted New York Knicks player is now expected to join his teammates for the rest of the season.
