A guy said she told everyone she was 18.  A guy said it was consensual.  She said it was not consensual.  That is what he said vs she said means.  The Police and DA then have to do all the work and frequently it is still exactly where it started.  A he said vs she said.

 

She said the sex with Araiza was consensual (or non-forced if you prefer) not the gang rape.  And the lawyer says he has witnesses who will testify that she claimed to be 18 (not that I believe for a second that a 17-year old high schooler, potentially looking to hook up with a college guy at a college party, would admit to being jailbait).  So, as I suspected, there is his defense.

 

And this clarified that it wasn't his residence.  Which makes him dragging her into the house to be raped by his housemates unlikely.  But we'll see if any evidence to the contrary comes out.

We don't need to hear about Bills character and culture anymore from Sean and Brandon after this. Hopefully they learned and know Buffalo don't want no one on our team with those types of allegations. This will linger for awhile but we can get back to focusing on a football...and may the young girl get justice.

Hot takes like this are whats wrong with the hot pocket on steroids generation.  The Bills officially learned about this all a month ago.  The guy was cut once the full details of the night came out.  Done. Over.    That’s called doing your due diligence, making a difficult decision and moving forward. And compared to soooo many other teams and situations, Beane moved extremely quickly and purposefully.

That's Araiza's lawyer.  He's paid to defend Araiza and present him as not guilty/minimize his involvement

 

Lawyers on both sides are advocates and anything they put out publicly is designed to persuade the court of public opinion to their respective sides. If you rely on the information put out by either attorney as completely factual, you are a fool. 

 

Last I checked, the investigation by law enforcement hadn't been released. So, we really have no idea what the actual facts are - just the versions of those facts put out by each side.

You know he did admit to having  sex with a minor? No coming. Ack from that.

Pretty sure he didn't admit that.

 

He admitted to having sex with someone that was saying she was 18 (according to his lawyers investigation) so for what that is worth, he thought he was having sex with an 18 yr old.

Depends on the evidence. I think he could come back from it as long as he isn’t found guilty of statutory rape - or, of course, worse.

Wtf is wrong with this guy.  He complains that no one has been taking him seriously, meanwhile he’s throwing insults left and right.  Does he really care about the victim he is supposedly representing, or more worried about the attention for himself?

His defense atty laid out in the video upthread why it will not be a crime, whether he did have sex or not. Based On the witnesses he has.

This video is from few pages back. Its matts lawyer stating he did nothing wrong with having sex with her. He had proof, the girl was telling everyone at the party she was 18..  Matt it not some creeper pedophile.

I don't even think he needs the witnesses.  Does anyone believe she was telling people at the party that she was 17 and/or didn't look 18?

Exactly. The Bills had to release him because of PR. They don’t have time to wait for everything to play out. 
 

If Matt didn’t do anything he’ll be cleared and on a new team shortly after.

ALLEGEDLY. I’ve been running around telling everyone who’s been sentencing Araiza that this is alleged but the fact is the defence is alleged evidence at this stage too. It proves nothing for now, just as the lawsuit proves nothing either.

Have to admit, American law baffles me. Pretty sure in the U.K. neither side would be able to do battle for hearts and minds in the media this way as it would be seen as prejudicing any further trial. It’d be kept private until the court case began.
