Decision day done for Kobe Bryant: He's charged with sexual assault

My inside sources tell me that he's guilty as hell. There were 3 dudes in that hotel room that night (2 other players in the league) and they were ALL tested for DNA matches. Only Kobe's matched, hence his arrest and release on bond. DNA evidence doesn't take this long to analyze. They can find these things out in hours if necessary and they've done so way long ago. Kobe was tested July 2nd. All this time gone by is designed to give the Laker and company exec. people time to put pressure on this girl to retract her story after receiving a hefty payoff. This is how things work when big money is involved. Hell, there's a few people posting on this board who've escaped similar charges this way. They could tell you. If she really was assaulted though, I hope she hangs tough and he pays for what he did with time served.

Exclamation

Are you somehow connected with the NBA or an insider?

BTW, I think the only thing he is guilty of is cheating on his wife. I have read a few stories (blind items) that he has cheated on his wife in the past. Plus, according to what I heard on the radio yesterday, they were putting on a performance at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday night because she has kicked him out of their house.

Any truth to that?

I'd just call myself an information finder-outter.

Regarding her kicking him out of the house, it's absolute truth. He's staying at a hotel. That whole ESPY's thing was a total PR move. If she wants to continue living her lifestyle, she has to "play ball" so to speak because she's pre-nupted up the ying-yang. As you saw, she cooperated.

Yeah but the deal is, was it mutual sex or not. Nobody knows for sure, just Kobe and the girl. Sometimes I have a hard time believing women saying they get sexually assaulted by famous men who could easily have anyone they wanted in multiple numbers.

The fact it took them so long to come up with enough evidence to even present a case is absurd. It will be thrown out... Or the girl will settle out of court for an undisclosed amount of money. At most, you see Kobe get probation for 3 years!

I had a friend of mine get busy last weekend with a famous rock star... Thank God she's not trying to claim he sexually assaulted her. I told her we could get media out the ass if she did, but we weighed the options and figured it was better to just have the pictures to look at and the story to brag about.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

I thought that there was no pre-nup, which is why his parents never "approved" of her and did not attend the wedding?

I do not think he'll serve any jail time, nor will Vanessa leave him.

The young lady he assaulted will settle out of court. But ya, he has most definitely tarnished his image.

unfortunately the young woman can't drop the charges even if she wanted to. It's the DA that's going after Kobe now. If Kobe is smart, he'll plead to a lesser charge and put this whole mess behind hiim...

I don't like Kobe much but I have to side with him on this one. I think the girl's just looking for attention and money.

Basketball Star Bryant Charged with Sexual Assault
Fri July 18, 2003 05:29 PM ET




EAGLE, Colo. (Reuters) - Basketball star Kobe Bryant was charged on Friday with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old hotel concierge at a posh Colorado resort, a prosecutor said.
"After much deliberation charges were filed against Kobe Bryant. He was charged with one count of sexual assault," Eagle County District Attorney Mark Hurlbert told reporters outside the court house.

Bryant, a guard with the Los Angeles Lakers, was charged with Class 3 felony sexual assault which carries a potential sentence of from four years to life in prison if he is convicted.

In a statement, Bryant said, "I am innocent of the charges filed today. I did not assault the woman who is accusing me. I made the mistake of adultery. I have to answer to my wife and my God for my actions that night and I pray that both will forgive me."

Hurlbert, who declined to comment on the closely guarded facts in the case, said he believed he could prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt, the standard for conviction in the United States.

Hurlbert also said the alleged victim wanted to maintain her privacy and did not want to speak with the media.

Bryant, 24, whose attorney was expected to comment later on Friday, is scheduled to appear in court in Colorado on Aug. 6, Hurlbert said.

Bryant's wife, Vanessa, in a separate statement, said, "I know that my husband has made a mistake -- the mistake of adultery. He and I will have to deal with that within our marriage and we will do so. He is not a criminal."



What a dumbass. His wife just had baby and he's messing around.

Please!!! This girl decided to call rape when Kobe told her to get out after her screwed her.

People these basketball stars have women falling all over them. This girl knew what she was doing, but when things didn't go her way she cried sexual assualt.

Kobe is stupid. He should of known better than to mess with the All American blond princess of the community. And
Kobe's image is tarnished now, because even if he's not convicted(which will be the outcome) the public will know that he is a cheater.

It wouldn't suprise me if Vanessa was getting some on the side either. I mean these NBA wifes have to deal with so much.

Who would of ever thought Kobe was slutting around?

They didn't approve of the marriage because she isn't black.

Dude, they've had enough to present a case for a while now. The delay was seeing if the girl could be bought off into a retraction. She didn't and they had to proceed. If this were a nobody, the trial would have begun a week after the initial arrest. Believe it.

Hey Joe, you still believe, "Kobe would never do something like this." Those were your words.
