Deshaun Watson cannot come out on top in regards to the multiple sexual assault claims against him, at least according to a former teammate.
Former Houston Texans cornerback Charles James took to Twitter and brought up an interesting perspective on the situation regarding his former teammate.
Watson could come out on top of the claims against him, but they will ultimately follow him regardless as someone will always have something to say about it.
“Deshaun Watson can be proven innocent and people will still say he did it. They’ll say shit like “ he probably paid them off” you know why because once you throw allegations out there like that the damage is done and they automatically assume you guilty. Shit sad”
With the number of lawsuits against Deshaun Watson reaching 16 on Tuesday, the quarterback’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, said in a statement that his law firm has “strong evidence” showing that one of the lawsuits alleging sexual assault is false and that it “calls into question the legitimacy of the other cases as well.”
Hardin added that he believes “any allegation that Deshaun forced a woman to commit a sexual act is completely false.”
“In January of this year, a woman attempted to blackmail Deshaun by demanding $30,000 in exchange for her ‘indefinite silence’ about what she stated was a consensual encounter,” the statement said.
