The state of Georgia did not see enough evidence to charge Roethlisberger with anything but the NFL found him guilty and gross enough to suspend him 6 games which will cost him 2.8 million dollars and he must complete psychiatric counseling. This is what NFL commissioner Roger Godell had to say:
“I recognize that the allegations in Georgia were disputed and that they did not result in criminal charges being filed against you.”
“My decision today is not based on a finding that you violated Georgia law, or on a conclusion that differs from that of the local prosecutor. That said, you are held to a higher standard as an NFL player, and there is nothing about your conduct in Milledgeville that can remotely be described as admirable, responsible, or consistent with either the values of the league or the expectations of our fans.”
Rumor is he paid off the accuser so charges were dropped. Ben is a bad man.
