NBA superstar Derrick Rose just won a huge victory in court. A jury found that the New York Knicks point guard did not commit sexual battery against a woman in 2013. Also, Rose will not be held liable for damages. Rose and his two friends were on trial for allegedly gang raping the woman. Rose and his friends were all found not guilty of trespassing, sexual battery, and battery.
As the verdict was read, the accuser and her legal team appeared somber — she had her head down as if she was praying. After each account, Rose’s legal team smiled and shook the hands of Derrick and his co-defendants. All of the defendants looked up with their eyes lit up and smiled. Rose acknowledged having sex with the woman but claimed it was consensual. The accuser claimed she was either drunk or drugged — and too out of it to give consent.
Rose has not yet released a statement.
