42- Year-Old Former NFL Star David Meggett Sentenced 30 Years In Prison For Raping 21-Year-Old Girl That Owed Him $200

This sounds like dude was on rocks or “something”:

Former NFL star David Meggett was sentenced to 30 years in prison today for raping a 21-year-old student. Meggett, 42, who had a decade-long career with the New York Giants, the New England Patriots and the New York Jets, was also convicted of burglary at the trial in Charleston, South Carolina. He was accused of breaking into his victim’s home in the middle of the night and raping her after she said she couldn’t repay the $200 he claimed she owed him.

At the time of the attack, Meggett was on bail in connection with another sexual assault charge. The retired athlete didn’t take the stand in his own defence to give his version of the January, 2009 incident. Beattie Butler, of the Charleston County Public Defender’s Office, argued that Meggett and the woman had consensual sex and later had an argument.

She said: ‘Rapists don’t ask for condoms, and they don’t ask for forgiveness.’

But assistant solicitor Chad Simpson told the jury that Meggett stole the human dignity of the victim. He added that Meggett used aggravated force by choking the victim during the attack. Meggett finished his NFL career with 336 receptions for 3,083 yards, 1,648 rushing yards, 5,566 yards returning kickoffs and 3,708 punt return yards. He also scored 29 touchdowns. His 3,708 punt return yards is the second most in NFL history. He was part of the New York Giants team that won Super Bowl XXV.

In 1998, Meggett was arrested in Toronto, Canada, after authorities said he allegedly assaulted an escort worker after a three-way sexual encounter. A trial on the assault charge ended with a hung jury in April 2000. Meggett later worked as a parks and recreation director in Robersonville, North Carolina, but resigned four years ago after he was accused of sexually assaulting his former girlfriend.

He was convicted of misdemeanor sexual battery in 2007, receiving two years’ probation in the North Carolina case. Authorities said he was allowed to move back to South Carolina to serve his probation. Meggett plans to appeal the decision.

This dude sounds like he has some serious demons with the threesomes, assault, and rape…Perhaps this time in prison will help him get it together.

Awww damn, he even had a card and everything!!!

Really though, Dave, you raping girls over $200??? Damn.
