Last year, Gareon Conley went through absolute hell when the former Ohio State CB was accused of rape just before the 2017 NFL Draft. The Oakland Raiders eventually took a chance on him with the 24th selection and they were rewarded when he was cleared of rape charges by a grand jury.
Soon after the initial allegation, video from a bar showed the accuser following (almost stalking) Conley, attempting to get his attention several times. That poked a hole in her initial story about meeting him for the first time in an elevator where she said he asked her for an orgy.
Fast forward to well over a year later and the Raiders CB is out for revenge in the form of filing a lawsuit against the accuser, saying the “false” allegation caused him to fall in the NFL Draft, costing him a fortune, according to TMZ.
“But Conley is still pissed — and has now filed legal docs of his own claiming the “false” allegations seriously damaged his reputation, hurt his draft stock and cost him multiple endorsement deals “including a contract with Nike.”
Conley also lays out his side of the incident … saying Puscian had aggressively tried to have sex with him during the night in question, but he turned her down and she was embarrassed.
Conley says she lied to officials out of spite for rejecting her advances.
In the court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Conley says Puscian is liable for “malicious criminal prosecution” … and he’s demanding a fortune.”
Injuries limited Conley to two games after he was drafted with the 24th overall pick last year.
