    yeah threatening to rape a woman is pretty serious. he should have dealt with it now and been a 5th rounder. I hope the giants don't take this clown can you imagine picking him at 12 and he gets convicted.

        Its hard to read because the names are removed(as they should be) but again, here is the police report regarding the threats he made.

        http://www.washtenawwatchdogs.com/um-police-report.html

        As you can see he made 2 threats in very public places with multiple witnesses. The 1st 1 was at her dorm where he went up to the wrong girl, because he didn't know her face yet, and proceeded to threaten her. The 2nd threat, the notorious 1 where he asked if she was going to press charges against his friend because if she did he would rape her because his friend did not, happened at a graduate student concert with multiple witnesses.
        Yikes . . . .so all these witnesses who witnessed two separate threats are lying and he is telling the truth . . . hmmm

        I also not that the police report doesn't say that he denied making the threats when he was confronted . . .

          Yup, I think this could work against Lewan(getting the court date pushed back). Like others said, someone will draft him and I'm hoping that its not the Giants.

          Young people make mistakes at that age especially. The alleged fight is one thing, but threatening a girl with rape is a lot worse. And lying about it makes it all that worse.

          Buyer Beware goes out to whomever drafts him, especially if in the 1st rd.

              This is going to blow up in his face.

              He just guaranteed he won't be drafted by some teams. At least if he had gotten it over with teams would know what they are getting into with him.

              I didn't think the Giants had any interest and now I am sure of it. Reese just doesn't risk it on this type of person...unless he gets some kind of info that everyone else doesn't have.

                I'm pretty sure he's being advised by pro counsel. Positive to say it wasn't his choice. Unless he's majoring in a law degree I'm sure that was advised. Amazing how all these conspiracy theories pop up all over the msg boards. Guess it's easy to speculate and make assumptions let's see how this all plays out.
                The guy is definitely young immature and carries a chip on his shoulder. Well the chip should be carried on the field and he needs to grow up quick. This should teach him a lesson that he's not above others regardless of how pampered he's been his whole life because he can play football. That's the hope anyway..

                  There is a huge difference between a conspiracy theory and an opinion.


                  As to what I posted, it is a police report, not opinion or conspiracy. The guy has serious off the field concerns. To deny that would be a conspiracy theory imho.

                      No the conspiracy is no one knows who advised him. Yet people are making assumptions to a legal process that 99 percent of people have no clue about.
                      My comments where about the legal proceeding not police reports. Unless your his lawyer you have no clue why this decision was made.

                      Ohh and btw someones opinion is another persons conspiracy we see it all the time. It's all in the way you want to believe something or bash something.

                        If the Giants think he can play, I hope they're not afraid to draft him. I'm no scout, but from what I've seen and read, I believe he has the talent to play, and play very well.

                        These guys know that being drafted even 5 spots earlier or later could mean a lot of money gained or lost. I wouldn't look into this legal move as any sign of guilt or seriousness of the crime.

                          yes no one here is his lawyer. However, IMO dealing with this before he becomes an employee of the NFL would prevent him from being disciplined by the NFL. Since he's choosing to wait until after the draft teams are going to be more apprehensive about the unknowns of the situation. Once he signs the contract effectively become property of the NFL and if a judgement is rendered against him. He could miss time and already starts out on RG's radar. This is just my take on it...and i hope the giants don't draft him...

                            His attorney explains the court date situation as follow. Everyone's opinions about this does not matter and is speculative heresay.

                            John Shea told ESPN it was just a coincidence that the new date is after the draft.

                            "When an attorney is involved, it is common in this court for the arraignment to be adjourned and combined with the next stage in the process, the pretrial hearing," Shea said in an email to ESPN.com. "In this case, given the schedules of the parties and the available pretrial dates of the court, the first available arraignment and pretrial date was May 19.

                            "So that is the date I requested."

                              I don't care "who advised him" that's not the guy we are drafting. How about we hold people accountable for their own actions and their own words?

                                Do you think any team that wants to draft him wont have their legal team aware of the matter. I find it very hard to believe that teams will roll the dice not knowing what course of action is being prepared. And that includes wether the prosecution will pursue or drop the case. Or more likely making an assumption here plea bargain which is probably why they ask for a delay in order to prepare and hear the prosecutions recommendation. Regardless of whatever comes to play here the decision will be rendered before the start of the season.
                                These are legal tactics and this is the course that was chosen.
