Verdict Reached In The Derrick Rose Rape Lawsuit Trial

A verdict has been reached in the Derrick Rose rape lawsuit trial.

Derrick Rose and his co-defendants have been cleared of all charges in their civil rape case, a jury decided today.

Rose, 28, and his friends Randall Hampton and Ryan Allen, were accused of breaking into Rose's ex-girlfriend's apartment in August 2013 and having sex with her when she was drunk and drugged.

From the Los Angeles Times:

The two-week trial in a downtown courtroom was marked by often lurid and sharply conflicting testimony from the woman and the defendants about what occurred in the early morning hours of Aug. 27, 2013.

Rose and the woman had been in an open relationship for two years, but broke it off a few months before the alleged rape. Both sides agreed that on the evening of the incident, Rose invited the woman and a friend over to the Beverly Hills house he was renting, where they drank with the three men.

What is at issue is whether the woman was intoxicated and whether she had invited the men to come to the apartment for sex.

The jury unanimously found Rose and his friends non-liable on all counts.

No criminal charges have been filed in the case, but the LAPD has said they are continuing to investigate.

More to come.
