    @DeathByDesign:  Well, she’s more than just a bitch, but I won’t use that word on here.  I can’t believe this man had to suffer in jail because of her.  I really hope she is charged for deformation of character, false charges, “stealing” money, etc.  I could see her going to jail.  It’s only the right thing to do.

    Wow, what a terrible thing to do. I agree that she should go to jail for what she did.

    If he was charged and sentenced, then she must have testified under oath.  Perjury is a felony, so prison might very well be in her future.

    If an innocent man went to prison because of her lies, I hope she goes to prison as well. Like a PP said, perjury is a felony as well.

    Fiance told me that he read this story a few days ago.  NFL is allowing him try out for teams which I think is great!  The girl wanted to hook back up with him and that’s why she got caught.

    She should pay a fine and do community service.

    @Rouquine:  That’s at least some comfort to this whole heartbreaking story, that the NFL is allowing him to tryout. But goodness, that girl needs her ass thrown in jail for perjury STAT!!

    Ugh. I saw this on an ESPN story a while ago, and I’m so glad the NFL is letting him have a shot. She’ll definitely get what’s coming to her (how could she think she deserves to keep the $1.5 mil is beyond me). But filing a false report, perjury, that’ll come back to her, and any civil suit he decides to persue against her. Gahh..this just infuriates me be cause 1- he lost such a vital time in his promising life, and 2- this makes it harder for so many actual victims who already have a difficult time coming forward and proving assault.

    It is within the law to charge her for her lies, as well as make her pay back that money, but sadly, weather or not they do– those stories rarely get the headlines they need to show people that lies like this will DESTROY someone’s life.  

    My Fiance was accused of “rape” once when he was a teenager, and fortunately it didn’t turn into anything, but if she had pressed and stuck to her story (which was 100% FALSE!!!) she probably could have gotten him thrown in jail too– the real story was that it was a girl he was hooking up with; and when she found out he wasn’t exclusive & had been with another girl at a party 3 weeks prior, she got mad and accused him of raping her.  She didn’t stick to the story long, and most people didn’t believe her (especaially since she started spreading this rumor when they were still “together”) but the fact of the matter is, had the wrong person heard that lie, his life could have been ruined just as easily.

    @DeathByDesign:  I didn’t read the whole thing.  Wow, what a lawyer!

    Well,  false testimony to a police investigation can’t be that much better!

    Wow I can’t believe the nerve of that girl… this makes me sick. Who is she to think she can keep that money?!?
