Stephenson cops plea in sexual assault case

Posted on: July 11, 2009 2:12 pm
 

Cincinnati signee Lance Stephenson pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct Friday, effectively ending the sexual assault case that plagued the McDonald All-American's recruitment and reputation.

Stephenson was accused of groping a 17-year-old girl during an incident last October and was facing up to six months in jail on the misdemeanor sexual assault charge. But with the plea, he will now be asked to perform just three days of community service and undergo counseling, according to the New York Daily News .

"We just want to move on and think about college," Stephenson's father, Lance Stephenson Sr., told the New York Daily News . "We're happy to be able to move on."

Stephenson is the state of New York's all-time leading scorer.

Whether the NCAA will clear him to compete as a freshman remains unclear.

Stephenson cops plea in sexual assault case

"The paper, Red River Rivals Recruit, includes a description of a wild party hosted by Longhorns fans at an upscale hotel in Dallas after the Oklahoma-Texas game on Oct. 11.

I will never forget the excitement amongst all participants, McFarland wrote. Alcohol was all you can drink, money was not an option. Girls were acting wild by taking off their tops, and pulling down their pants. Girls were also romancing each other. Some guys loved every minute of the freakiness some girls demonstrated. I have never attended a party of this magnitude.

He continued: The attitude of the people at the party was that everyone should drink or not come to the party. Drugs were prevalent with no price attached."


Bearcat702??? Can you show me where there was a recruit involved with this??? This is just a party held by Longhorn's fans. Sorry that this may have struct a nerve with ya. Maybe the article would have been more touching if it included a preist and an alter boy. They have therapy for kids like you that have gone thru this mental and emotional stress. I'm here for ya to if you need someone to talk to.

Jungle Jim, Huh? Did you enter a CBS website and maybe take a left towards College Football Lane, when you really wanted a right onto Politics Road? What in the %#*&% are you talking about?

I would let MJ sleep naked with buttered children compared to the hypocrites working for FOX - ditto heads and neocon fan favorite Rush Limbaugh (drugs), O'Reilly (Sexual Harrassment), Glenn Beck (drugs and alcohol).  Because you don't know Michael Jackson and he was never convicted of anything, you're just throwing stones - your own perversion is what bothers you.  No, MJ was okay - it was the weirdos around him that couldn't handle the truth.  But then again, even Jesus' entourage turned on him.  Fox would have said Jesus was "gay" because he didn't have a woman.  Prove me wrong? Please?!

By the way, you want perversion - have you looked at your RNC representatives, Gingrich, 3x divorcee, Limbaugh, pill popper, forgery, drug trafficing, Glenn Beck, drugs/alcohol, O'Reilly (by your reasoning) - Sexual Harrassment (settled, but again, you must assume he's guilty - right?).

Cheers!

Well, if you were really worried about sexual assualt - you should check your local Congress and Senators - Particularly the neocon minds with liberal labidos!

Orange Cult, Here's a link to another story on the "classy" way you recruited a "classy" recruit (major crime background in this kid's family), Jamarcus McFarland, courtesy of the New York Times (you may have heard of that newspaper):

What i think is pathetic is that a 17/18 year old kid going to college to play basketball ruined your day.

Real classy guy...

Cops a feel then cops a plea. He's got that routine down pat. I'm guessing this won't be the last time we hear this guys name for doing something illegal. And deep down I hope he gets suspended by the NCAA and not allowed to play. I agree this is a classy move by the Bearcats. They always seem to find garbage and what really pisses me off is that this guy was sooo close to not being recruited by anyone and in walks Cincinnati. Basically turning the other cheek and condoning this behavior. They make me sick.
