The Los Angeles Police Department says there is an active criminal rape investigation against new Knicks point guard Derrick Rose. This has been confirmed in a letter to the attorney of the woman accusing Rose and two of his friends of raping her in 2013. ThinkProgress.org got a hold of the letter from Detective Nadine Hernandez:
The accuser has fought to stay anonymous, but an L.A. judge ruled that her name must be revealed during the trial when it begins Oct. 4. Jane Doe, as she is listed now, says that Rose and his two friends had non-consensual sex with her after she was incapacitated from a night of drinking. Rose claims that the sex was consensual.
He is in the final season of a five-year $94.3 million deal and is scheduled to make $21.3 million in 2016?17 after being traded to the New York Knicks this offseason.
