Roethlisberger's future coming to ahead

Paul KasprzakContributor IApril 2, 2010

According to WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh, PA, via ProFootballTalk.com, Milledgeville police will be sending their case to the prosecutor in regards to allegations of rape by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. That means Roethlisberger’s career in the National Football League will come to ahead.

District attorney’s are elected officials that will always pursue cases of rape and murder, especially when a celebrity is suspect of committing the crime. The exception being the Mike Vick case as the local prosecutor for whatever reason turned yellow.

If the district attorney has any case at all against Roethlisberger charges will be filed. That means Roethlisberger’s career will be in doubt.

What has not been mentioned is the fact that there could also be charges of battery filed against Roethlisberger if he hit the victim. That would only increase the length of jail time if charged and convicted.

So, what should Roethlisberger do if charged?

That depends on what the prosecution’s evidence is. If it is pretty solid he should take the plea deal serve his time and reach a monetary settlement with the victim. That way he will have a chance at returning to the National Football League.

In the end, even if Roethlisberger is innocent he is getting what he deserves for using his status to hookup with women.

Good night and good luck.
