View Full Version : GBI Releases Roethlisberger files

The GBI today released its investigative file on the Ben Roethlisberger case, which contains more than 50 DVDs of audio and videotaped interviews and photographs.

Officials said 20 organizations, including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, requested the file under Georgia's Open Records Act.

It's unclear how many new details will emerge.

Prosecutors opted not to charge the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback in the case involving a 20-year-old college student, who accused Roethlisberger of raping her in a Milledgeville bar in March.

Roethlisberger's lawyer said no sexual assault occurred, and District Attorney Fred Bright said there was not enough evidence to proceed. However, he scolded the quarterback in a press conference, telling him to "grow up."

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Roethlisberger for the first six games of the 2010 season and ordered him to undergo a comprehensive behavioral evaluation.

Speaking to reporters after a recent Steelers workout, Roethlisberger said: "Itís been neat being able to re-evaluate my life and spend time with my family and re-evaluate and refigure whatís important in life. Thatís me. Evaluating what I need to do and be smarter when it comes to certain things. Itís a new chapter. I am looking forward to it. It starts with football. I am glad to be back out here."

I'm willing to bet most of this evidence will be exculpatory, and will be widely ignored by the mainstream media.
