A History of Athletes Catching Sexual Assault Charges

Ben Roethlisberger

Sport: Football
Year(s): 2008, 2010
Charge: Sexual assault of Andrea McNulty (2008) and a 20-year-old student at Georgia College & State University (2010)

Outcome: Like Kobe, the exact details of these two incidents will likely never be revealed. Roethlisberger settled the lawsuit regarding the 2008 case in early 2012, and charges were not brought in the 2010 case due to a lack of evidence and the accuser not wanting the public spectacle of a trial. Ben's image has nevertheless suffered, and he was suspended by the NFL without pay for the first four games of the 2010 season.
