Roethlisberger Attorney Denies Rape Allegation!

The New York Post reports on the still developing Ben Roethlisberger rape allegation by Nevada hotel worker Andrea McNulty, which allegedly occurred in a Lake Tahoe penthouse suite last year. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback's attorney David Cornwell vehemently denies the accusation on behalf of his client. McNulty has filed a civil suit against Roethlisbereger, but didn't report the incident to police. She did report the incident to to her employers who she says encouraged her to be quiet. She describes what happened below:

McNulty said the incident occurred when she had been working as a concierge during a celebrity golf tournament Roethlisberger attended with other athletes, including Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, last July.

At around 10 p.m. on July 11, 2008, Roethlisberger returned to his room with a woman who left about 20 minutes later, the suit said.

He then came to the concierge desk and asked for help with his television. McNulty agreed to go herself. After finding that the television seemed to be working fine, she tried to leave, but Roethlisberger blocked her way and started kissing her, the suit said.

"Ms. McNulty feared that since he was a football player, he could or would physically harm her if she attempted to fight him," the suit said.

After telling Roethlisberger to stop, she claims, he pushed her onto the bed and pulled her underwear off.

"Please don't," she said she told him. "I'm not on any type of birth control."
"Don't worry. I will pull out," she said he replied.

When he finished, she went into the bathroom to compose herself, but as she left, she claimed Roethlisberger began acting nervously.

"There are cameras in this room, aren't there?" the suit quotes him as saying.
"Yes, there are cameras everywhere," she replied.

"If anyone asks you, you fixed my television," Roethlisberger is quoted as saying. "You fixed my television! Now go!"

On the surface this is a he said/she said situation. However when Kobe Bryant went through a similar allegation years ago, it was national news.
