Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson is Sued by a 24th Woman
Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is still in the media for his off-field activity, as a 24th woman has come out and filed a lawsuit for sexual misconduct against the former Texan. Place a bet on NFL games at Michigan Online Casinos such as BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel.
Since the airing of HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" last week, another woman has decided to sue Watson. The first lawsuit was filed in March 2021, with a flood of additional women also filing complaints over the months to bring the total to 22.
All of the women who filed complaints are alleging that Deshaun Watson committed sexual misconduct during a massage session. This seems to not have much momentum as two Texas grand juries have denied bringing criminal charges against him after he denied all of the allegations brought against him.
Texas attorney Tony Buzbee, who represents the plaintiffs, said in a released statement "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.”
Deshaun Watson was traded from the Houston Texans in March and The Browns (who have not commented on the latest case) gave him $230 million guaranteed money on a five-year deal. Although the NFL has not made any official statements, they claim to have an ongoing investigation open on Watson and there is a possibility of suspension for violating the league's personal conduct standards.
