Default Poll-Big Ben going to be charged

I do not think he is going to end up being charged for the following reasons

1. No witnesses
2. Ben had two off duty cops in his entourage that indicate they did not see anything "fishy". Of course it occurred away from them, but for someone to sexually assault someone when he has cops with him would be really insane.
3. The girl was in the club and and had been drinking. If the cops charge Ben and do not charge her for underage drinking, then the cops look REALLY bad and he appears to be a target. If she is charged with underage drinking, then it really goes against her credibility and state of mind which are of utmost importance because of A...-no witnesses. In addition, the bartenders indicate the girl was all over Ben and she allegedly willingly went into a stall with him. There is no indication he dragged her or forced her into the stall. The police pro

I do not think the cops are going to pursue the charges for the above reasons. The girl probably does not want to deal with the allegations/charges of underage drinking depending on her major. Cops are probably going to say not enough evidence to charge Ben, especially if they are going to be forced to charge her with underage drinking in order to save face.

LMAO!

i was given a ticket as a minor for "allowing myself to be served" (while having sex with my 31 year old girlfriend in a parked car).

both of us had been drinking.

they made her drive my car home even though she was more sloshed (i had to do a sobriety test with a wet pee-pee, and she went unchecked as the "adult").

i had a $75 fine to go pay. its akin to jaywalking or littering.

i was 18. at that time it woulda been angel numero uno.

(and to not age myself as a fogie, i think the fine for "allowing to be served" is still $75).

i just cant see any college student too worried about such a "charge" (regardless of what their major is).

The title scared the hell out of me.. For some reason my eyes just skip right to the "Big Ben going to be charged" part and skipped the poll part.

My guess is Ben won't be charged, but for reasons other than are stated here. I read how the people of that little town are fed up with all the media attention they are receiving right now. That being said, charges being laid and a trial would bring media on that town like locusts. My bet it will be more of a political decision to not charge Ben. Although I don't believe he is guilty of anything except foolish decisions.

Even if Roethlisberger is totally innocent, it's sad that the Steelers owner was said to be fed up with the Roethlisberger mess (second one in 8 months) and mentioned he might let him go! Too much negative attention on the Steelers team as a whole. We don't need that kind of distraction. Sigh....

That is true but I believe if he is not charged the Rooneys will not do nothing to him. why would they get rid of one of the best quarterbacks in the league over someone lying about him.
