Default Accuser e-mails absolve Roethlisberger

Accuser e-mails absolve RoethlisbergerComment Email Print Share ESPN.com news services

PITTSBURGH -- A former Nevada casino worker who accused Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of rape in a civil lawsuit should drop the case because her own e-mails and text messages prove she wasn't assaulted, his attorney said.

Andrea McNulty "should abandon her lawsuit immediately and admit that Ben Roethlisberger did not rape her," Roethlisberger's attorney W. David Cornwell said in a statement e-mailed to The Associated Press. "We believe that [the woman's] own words directly refute the scurrilous allegations made in her complaint."


McNulty contends in the lawsuit filed last month in Washoe County District Court in Reno, Nev., that Roethlisberger raped her in his room at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe in July 2008 when he was there to play in a celebrity golf tournament.

McNulty never went to authorities; her lawsuit says she didn't file a criminal complaint because she feared Harrah's would side with Roethlisberger and she would be fired. She also accused Harrah's officials of orchestrating a cover-up.

Cornwell provided the AP and other news outlets with 18 pages of e-mails and texts purportedly between the 31-year-old woman and a male friend.

Cornwell wouldn't say Wednesday how he obtained the e-mails and texts, but said he has a "good faith basis" to believe they are legitimate. Some of the e-mails were sent within a day of the alleged attack, including some just a couple of hours later, Cornwell said.

In an e-mail two days before the alleged rape, McNulty tells her friend that she has been chosen to take care of the resort's celebrity guests, including Roethlisberger, Cornwell said. She also tells him that he and the quarterback look alike.

On July 12, less than 24 hours after the alleged rape, McNulty writes about how much she has enjoyed entertaining the celebrities and VIPs.

"The golf tournament has been really fun ... I am really excited because we are all going to see Journey tonight and that will be soooooo much fun. Speaking of which I need to head over to dinner with your lookalike and a few others before heading out," the e-mail said, according to Cornwell.

Calvin Dunlap, the attorney for McNulty, told ESPN's Shelley Smith "no comment" on Wednesday in response to the release of the e-mails. Dunlap didn't return a message left by The Associated Press on Wednesday. Cornwell wouldn't comment beyond his e-mailed statement.

In her lawsuit, McNulty said she was distraught and left work after the assault, going to cry in her pickup truck.

But in an e-mail sent from her work station two hours after the alleged attack, she sounds as if nothing has occurred, Cornwell said. "Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh I finally got away," she writes. Nine minutes later she sent him a cute note filled with mock baby talk, Cornwell said.

In text messages sent in December, the man asked her what would happen if they broke up, Cornwell said.

"I would date Ben Roethlisberger," she answered. "hahahahah."

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
