Big Ben Will Not Face Charges
This past Monday, people all over sports talk radio were curious to see information Georgia District Attorney Fred Bright was going to give us about the alleged sexual assault case against Ben Roethlisberger.
During the press conference, he said the accuser had "bruising and swelling" in her private area, but there was no evidence of rape. Bright also said male DNA was found from the tests, but it was so small that it could not produce a "profile."
In the end, Bright said he could not prove anything beyond a reasonable doubt and significant questions persisted.
Nobody knows what happened in Milledgeville, Georgia on March 8th. For all we know, the accuser could have suffered those injuries from another person and tried to blame it on Roethlisberger
Even though Ben wasn't charged, he needs to realize who he is. He is the star quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers and he can't be hanging around in a night club with college kids.
Ben met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday and we will have to wait and see if any disciplinary action will be taken against him. I wouldn't be surprised if Roethlisberger gets suspended because Goodell has been known to come down hard on players who have conducted themselves poorly.
Here is a clip from the press conference.......
