BSO- On September 8th, Rose filed docs explaining his accuser is trying to introduce witnesses related to his NCAA University scandal in the upcoming trial. The woman informed the court she plans to call the custodian of records of NCAA – to give testimony of the NCAA University of Memphis public infractions report from 2009 and his failure to respond and the penalties that were imposed, along with the custodian of records of Educational Testing Service in relation to allegations Rose cheated on standardized college entrance examination and his failure to respond.
I'm not going to lie to you guys. You may not have known this, but I actually have no idea how to build a fool proof case against a professional athlete that is charged with rape. That's why my opinion, as logical as I think it happens to be, is nothing more then hearsay. Still, I don't think I am the only one that feels the way so I'll throw it out there anyway. If you're trying convict someone of having non-consensual sex with you wouldn't the first order of business be to provide evidence that they had non-consensual sex with you?
Don't get me wrong, I am all for defaming a little character along the way, I just don't think you're going to get the desired reaction when you tell a courtroom that a professional basketball player cheated on a standardized test during his youth. Something tells me a jury isn't going to be swayed by a point guard needing a little assistance in analyzing an analogy. I mean, it could be a worthy point of reference if your'e trying to get him retroactively suspended from game's played during his single season at Memphis, but it's probably not getting him any closer to a jail cell. Not to demean this woman's strategy, but if she immediately goes after him for being an idiot that can't do basic arithmetic it looks worse for her side than it does his. Maybe just stick to hammering home damning text messages about forced group sex, and pressing the guy whose known for impossibly stupid quotes into prosecuting himself with even more impossibly stupid quotes. I know I didn't pass the bar, but I don't think that's necessary to see that there's more incriminating aspects of a potential rapist's past than his inability to do reading comprehension.
