Derrick Rose’s lawyers say accused rape was consensual
The legal counsel for 28-year-old New York Knicks player Derrick Rose insisted on Wednesday, October 5 that the woman bringing rape charges against Rose willingly had sex with him at Rose’s mansion in Beverly Hills. The plaintiff is also accusing two of Rose’s friends with the rape of an impaired woman.
Rose’s lawyers said the text messages the woman sent to Rose after a party indicated that the woman was lucid and not intoxicated after leaving Rose’s mansion. A clip from a deposition showed Rose saying “No” when asked if he understood what consent meant. The plaintiff’s attorneys argued “His friends may have pushed this issue, but all three certainly knew that she was severely intoxicated, she could not consent and she would have never consented.”
