Testimony accuses Rose of 1970s crime

01 Août 2017

". that Rose had a sexual relationship with the woman for several years in the 1970s, beginning before she turned 16".

The woman's account was submitted by defense attorneys in a defamation lawsuit Rose filed previous year against John Dowd, a well-known Washington lawyer who said in a 2015 radio interview that Rose had committed statutory rape by routinely having sex with underage girls during his baseball career. Doe's account states that they had sex outside of OH when she was underage - something Rose disputes. Doe claims she was "14 or 15" when Rose initially kicked-off a sexual relationship that lasted several years.

Rose, who was 34 and married at the time, is in no legal jeopardy related to the allegation because the statute of limitations has passed.

According to those court documents filed by Dowd's team on Monday, Rose acknowledged having a relationship with the woman in question but said he was led to believe that she was already 16 when it began.

The lawsuit states Dowd said during the radio appearance that Rose associate Michael Bertolini told investigators he "ran young girls" to Rose during spring training, which Dowd called 'statutory rape every time.' Bertolini's lawyers issued a categorical denial in the summer of 2015.

A federal judge ruled that Rose could move forward with a defamation lawsuit against Dowd. Dowd has previously alleged that Rose committed statutory rape during spring training in Florida, where the age of consent was 18. Dowd told the interviewer on air about Rose having a sexual relationship with young girls. The now-adult victim says that she was 16-years-old when Rose allegedly committed the crime in the '70s.

Ohio's age of consent is 16. He also states they never had sex outside Ohio. Though his application for reinstatement was denied in 2015, the Reds retired his number and inducted him into their Hall of Fame last season.

Rose accepted a lifetime ban, and the Hall of Fame decided in 1992 that anyone on the permanently ineligible list could not appear on a Hall ballot.

Dowd's attorneys also brought up public accounts about what they called Rose's "sexual indiscretions", including excerpts from a 1997 biography that said Rose "flaunted his affairs openly", even in front of his family. "Isn't that lovely? So that's statutory rape every time you do that".

Dowd now serves on President Donald Trump's legal team advising him during the investigation into possible collusion his inner-circle had with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election.
