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.

If it was that big of a deal the woman would have come forth when it happened....not 14 months later. Something tells me Stevie Franchise dropped her from his label and she got mad. I ain't sayin she's a gold digger......you know the rest.

Just allegations who knows what really happened? It's been a year and only now TMZ is getting the scoop, seems like a credible source would have had it sooner and if the police didn't feel the need to pursue it then it doesn't seem like much but I am not the one to judge only the man upstairs  and our judicial system...

No matter what we think of him as a person and I know him from his Orlando Magic days, he is innocent until proven guilty and there are at least two sides to every story.  We don't know what happened, only they do.  I didn't really care for him, but I have never heard of him being in trouble with the law before.
