Steve Francis accused of sexual assault

This is potentially depressing and not fun, so let's get right to it. Steve Francis has been accused of sexual assault, according to TMZ.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Francis allegedly “groped” a 20-year-old woman through her clothing in May 2010 … and the woman immediately went to the cops to file a complaint.

The alleged victim tells TMZ … she is a singer who was signed to Steve’s record label and on the day of the alleged incident, she had met Steve at an office to discuss her contract.

Francis, of course, played a decent number of seasons in the NBA and made his mark in Houston with the Rockets. He most recently played in China but has since left there and has, I guess, just been hanging out and living off those huge contracts he signed.

In this scenario, though, Francis has merely been accused by the woman. Police have yet to pursue charges in more than a year since the alleged incident.

Come-on man. One year later? She could have done much better than that. Gold-digging, in a pinch.

Stevie Franchise never got the credit he deserved for being a fantastic player.
They talk about the explosiveness of D. Rose...which he is...but he's not the first like that.
Check out Steve Francis highlights and you will see an explosive PG. I'm not saying Steve Francis was better, I'm just saying I don't think he got the credit of being a fantastic player with incredible atheletic ability until his body gave out. And don't give me the Marbury comparison, there was no comparison.

This is the type of story (while obviously reportable as news) should have the Comments section disabled.

Amen!!  This happened in May of 2010 and she immediately went to the police.  Evidentily, there were no grounds to pursue this "case" and it ended there.

This shouldn't even be in-the-news.Frown

CBSsportsline.com has to lie and make up stories, because that's the only way they will get attention in the sports world.  I have a lot of friends that are playing or did play professional sports and hardly any professional athlete every heard of any of their reporters.  They have guys like Pete Prisco, Mike Freeman, and the dumbest, most unfunniest never played a sport in his life Larry Dumbrow.  These are the people that CBSsportsline hires and articles like this are the ones they write.  You ever noticed that not one major sport ever talks about them or have ESPN or FOX Sports ever gives any of their columnist credit for a story?  That's because no one talks to them, because CBSsportline has no credibility in the sports world and I hope Steve Francis sues their arss for putting this on their web site.

CBSsportline.com is good for one thing, looking up player stats.

Here is an idea sportsline...have all the correct information when you put something like this to "print"...I am tired of you guys posting articles without all the information.  That is why i left ESPN, and now you guys are doing it!
