Deshaun Watson’s legal troubles continue to pile up. The Cleveland Browns quarterback was recently accused by a 23rd woman of sexual assault just last week. Now, yet another suit is on the books as Watson prepares himself for the onslaught.
ESPN reported that a 24th woman has sued Deshaun Watson over inappropriate sexual conduct. The new suit makes some serious allegations against the QB. Watson’s alleged behavior was described in explicit detail.
The plaintiff was a massage therapist who worked with Deshaun Watson on two occasions. The first was cut short, as Watson had to leave abruptly to take a phone call. During the second session, a few days later are when the assault is said to have taken place. Tony Buzbee, the attorney representing all 24 alleged victims, gave a statement on the matter.
“Today we filed the twenty-fourth case alleging sexual misconduct against Deshaun Watson. The allegations made in this new case are strikingly similar to those made by many of the other victims.
Lost in the media frenzy surrounding Deshaun Watson is that these are twenty-four strong, courageous women who, despite ridicule, legal shenanigans, and intense media scrutiny, continue to stand firm for what is right. Setting aside the legal wrangling, the complicity of the NFL, or the failures of the criminal justice system, the resounding story that should be told here is that these women are true heroes.
I will say again, our entire team is incredibly proud to represent these women, and we look forward to the day when we can lay out their cases in detail in front of a jury.”
Two Texas grand juries have declined to pursue criminal charges against Watson as the NFL investigates whether he violated their code of player conduct. Deshaun has denied any wrongdoing and says he has never disrespected any woman. Eventually, the truth will come out in court, and there are plenty of women who will have something to say about that.
