Knicks' Rose says he sus­pected 'rape' setup

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

The night after Der­rick Rose and two of his friends had sex with his ex-girl­friend, he had a hunch she was go­ing to claim they raped her, the Knicks star tes­ti­fied Tues­day.

A judge in the trial of a rape law­suit against NBA star Der­rick Rose and two other men said Tues­day that he’s con­sid­er­ing a mis­trial after crit­i­ciz­ing the plain­tiff’s lawyers as “un­be­liev­ably care­less” in pro­duc­tion of ex­hibits.

Rose’s lawyers asked U.S. Dis­trict Court Judge Michael W. Fitzger­ald to de­clare a mis­trial be­cause they had not been given three text mes­sages im­por­tant to their case un­til Fri­day, when Rose was on the wit­ness stand.

The lawyers for the woman who ac­cused the New York Knicks player and two friends of rap­ing her in her apart­ment in 2013 said the texts were pre­vi­ously dis­closed and the ar­gu­ment was friv­o­lous.
