Deshaun Watson admits under oath that Ashley Solis cried at the end of the massage


Recommended Posts

How is his lawyer not conceding that his client engaged in criminal activity?

 

"Solicitation of Prostitution Under the New Texas Penal Code §43.021. Under the new Texas law, it remains a crime to solicit prostitution even if no money is exchanged (or other form of payment) and/or no sexual conduct transpires. It remains a crime in Texas merely to ask for sex in exchange for any type of payment."

 

If he's paying these women for a massage, and asking for a happy ending, how is that not solicitation?

Maybe cause he paid for the massage and not for sex. If I pay for a massage then after ask for a haircut…I didn’t pay for that haircut…only the massage. I asked for the haircut as a favor.

 

In reality I have a hard time believing he never  straight up offered money tho. But the way you framed makes it easy for an attorney to counter.

I think this is a really good point.
 

It’s really hard to imagine that Deshaun Watson was constantly seeking out new inexperienced and unlicensed massage therapists, who always had to be female, for any therapeutic or performance related reasons.
 

At very best it seems he was looking for female massage therapists to have random sexual encounters with. At worst he’s a serial sexual predator who shows absolutely no remorse for his actions, and maybe doesn’t even see that his actions were wrong.

 

Aren't there any federal laws he may have broken that would not be calling on the Texas grand jury but a federal one did he fly in any of the ig massueses from other states?  At the vary least this a case where imho a undercover task force should investigate and even conduct a sting where he is videotaped and if he's some innocent that's what tape will show, but if he is shown to assault the woman they arrest him and try him for it.  Don't know if his guaranteed contract would pay out if he is found criminally guilty?

Maybe he should be renamed Georgy Porgy Pudding Pie, kissed the girls and made them cry?

They already said they are not criminally trying the case. Likely because the DA knows all it takes is one or two to be exposed as not being truthful to take down the entire case. And they likely know it's far more than one or two not being truthful about it.

 

Probably 3 or 4 legit ones and the rest are money grabs.

Yea, you have to prove the money is for something other than the service and that is again practically impossible without physical evidence or 3rd party testimony.

Yes he flew one one from Georgia

Where do you get these numbers from?

Apparently a woman once kept making excuses for not going out with him instead of just telling him they weren't interested, therefore many women would be willing to lie about something like sexual assault/harassment for money.

How these things work many times

 

What are "these things"? What does "many times" mean? If there's a specific pattern you're alleging you should probably elaborate on that.

 

There's a couple people in this thread who have argued that we shouldn't take a side in a he said/she said case, and then have gone on to take a side. If you're going to take the side that almost 90% of the plaintiffs are liars, be prepared to defend that claim.

 

The simplest explanation is that Deshaun Watson hired dozens of massage therapists throughout Houston because he was seeking something other than a massage. Your claim is that he did that all innocently and randomly picked 3 or 4 of them to sexually harass. It's a really specific and bizarre narrative you're painting. And you just casually throw it out there like it's obvious.

Did you lose your song book?  Because this is very different than the tune you were singing about Bob Kraft.

Proof please. Show me the stats because I call BS on this 

Regretting something after the fact does not make it illegal if it was consented to while it happened.

His lawyer basically admitted guilt. There are so many ills in this whole situation. His lawyer saying massages with a "Happy Ending" are not a crime. The fact Watson paid the business owner $5,000 to send women his way (because he's a nice guy ya know :rolleyes:). The fact that Watson asked to be covered with a towel or, even a wash cloth, instead of a standard sheet. The fact that he solicited NUMEROUS massage therapists. All of the stories of the plaintiffs being dang near identical. The fact that they denied, denied, denied, and now his lawyer makes this statement. The fact he tried to settle twice, but wanted a strict NDA for them to settle. The fact he sat on the stand and committed perjury saying he wasn't looking for sexual favors because he "has a girlfriend". The fact he admitted the one girl was crying, just as she testified, through text messages to her after the incident and claims he didn't know why. The fact his lawyer is now trying to walk back that statement. This guy is an unrepentant predator who doesn't deserve the privilege of donning an NFL uniform ever again. 

My friend you are speaking 100% straight facts.  I am bewildered as to what is taking Goodell so long to make a decision regarding what Watson's punishment will be.  I don't know why, but I have this horrible, sinking feeling deep in my gut that Watson will get what amounts to a slap on the wrist.  I don't have any legitimate explanation for feeling this way, but I do.  I agree with you wholeheartedly that I don't think he should ever be allowed to play again.  However, I can't shake this negative feeling that Watson somehow dodges a big one, and gets something like a 3 or 4 game suspension.

And in these 24 circumstances you personally have established consent somehow.

Goodell does not make the decision.  
 

It goes to an independent arbitrator to make the decision and then Goodell enforces it.

 

At this point right now with 2.5 months before the first game - why does it matter.  Why does the NFL have to rush the decision when the courts are taking depositions and will not be making a decision until middle of next year.

 

This is exactly how the NFL got in trouble with the Ray Rice situation - the wife did not pursue anything - there were no criminal charges - the NFL tried to interview and came down with a 2 game suspension and then the video gets leaked and they look stupid. 
 

I would hope the NFL puts him on the commissioner’s list until this is done, but at the present moment - more women are still coming forward and more details - so I am not sure the NFL will act until the legal side is done - Vegas seems to feel that way by where the odds they are giving Cleveland.

 

We will see, but he has already sat out 1 season and I will suspect he has more time missed coming up - I just do not see a reason to rush to make a judgement let it keep playing out and hopefully kick the predator out for as long as possible - I wish forever, but I don’t expect that because of the Union.

This is true. But how do you know this is what happened? Feels like wild speculation.

oh so now it was consensual?!
 

You keep changing what you think happened as more evidence, new accusers, and even his lawyer admitting “non-guilt” comes out.
 

But you always seems to give Watson as much or more benefit of the doubt that any reasonable person could. 


At this point I have gathered enough evidence as to make a decision on your morality
