    Woman sues Mike Tyson for $5 million, claims rape happened 30 years ago

    A woman is suing famous boxer Mike Tyson for $5 million under New York's Adult Survivors Act, claiming he raped her in the early 1990s.

    So she is claiming he raped her about 30 years ago and is now coming forward and wants money.

    The woman, who is seeking $5 million in damages, stated in a signed affidavit that Tyson invited her into a limousine in Albany, New York, under the pretext of bringing her to a party. Once in a limousine, she says Tyson began to kiss her, ignored her pleas to stop, pulled her pants off and "violently raped" her.

    Tyson had previously been convicted of rape in February 1992 in Indianapolis. He was sentenced to six years in prison and was released on parole after three years.
    The fact that he served so little prison time suggests that not much evidence existed in that case.

    Sounds insane, but the state of New York recently eliminated the statute of limitations for rape to be more "Pro-woman".

    30 years??? Zero evidence. He said, she said. True or not, just the accusation has huge implications in freedom and finances.

    We need some rational laws. OK, no statute of limitation for criminal action. However, limit civil action to no more than 2 years, or two years beyond the age of majority, whichever applies. Two years, three years, whatever, just make it something a little bit more reasonable than 30 years. Geesh! What changed in the lady's life where she needs a payday?

    I wouldn’t doubt that he did it, but 30 years ago it’s all about the money. I’m sure he’s already paid her off but now the money is gone and she wants more.

    I think there's a good chance Tyson will be dead by the end of the year. He's already confined to a wheelchair, I believe. Somehow, I really doubt the dude gives a shit about being sued.

    Concerning Tyson's prior rape conviction, it looks like the only evidence in that case was that she said he did it.

    "In July 1991, Tyson met Desiree Washington at a rehearsal for the Miss Black America pageant in Indianapolis. Washington accompanied Tyson back to his hotel room, where, in the early hours of July 19, Washington claimed he raped her. Tyson claimed the sex was consensual. The world-famous fighter was indicted by a grand jury in September of that year and convicted in February 1992. He was released, after serving three years, in March 1995."
    https://www.history.com/this-day-in-...g-beauty-queen

    Since he was born in June 1966, Tyson would have been 25 years old at the time of the alleged crime.

    It looks like only about four months after he began serving his prison sentence, the woman filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court trying to get money for the alleged rape.

    Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard University law professor handling Tyson's appeal, had this to say:
    "We couldn’t be happier because it finally gives us a vehicle for bringing out the whole truth, for deposing Desiree Washington and for exposing her for what she is: a money-grubbing phony who has done this--as we suspected right from the beginning--for the money."

    written by Bob Garrett, former USA Boxing Certified Coach

    This was not the first time Desiree Washington accused somebody of rape.
    According to an legal affidavit signed by high school friend Wayne Walker, she accused Walker of raping her in October 1989. It was complete nonsense. It takes a lot of hutzpah to make false rape accusations.

    Millions of dollars were spent to prosecute Tyson. Nobody knows what Washington got out of it. Tyson never offered her a penny to recant her accusations.

    I believe the motivation for Desiree was a false hope Mike Tyson might use his millions to pay her off--to recant her accusations to save him from prosecution.

    Mike called her a lying, money hungry, reptilian creature. He said she was a very bad person who tried to take advantage of him to make herself rich. Tyson has always maintained his innocence. He never changed his opinion of Washington.

    Desiree’s story about Tyson is one of the fishiest lines of malarkey ever told.

    There were people in the next room to where Tyson and Washington had sex. They didn't hear anything. They heard no crying, no protests, no screaming, no nothing. You could hear creaks and pops, and even conversation in the next room.

    Three witnesses said she had her legs wrapped around Tyson as they came into the lobby in the wee hours of the morning. They were not allowed to testify because the judge thought their testimony might prejudice the jury.

    Why would Tyson rape somebody? Women were throwing themselves at him. He didn't need to rape anybody. Why would a woman go to his room at 3 in the morning, kissing and making out with him on the way to the hotel?

    Tyson said they were kissing and making out, got undressed, had consensual oral sex first--after that they had consensual vaginal sex. He was very tired and had to get up very early. He wanted to get a couple hours of sleep. Desiree Washington made several trips to the bathroom which locked from the inside. She had a phone. She made no calls. She was free to leave at any time. She asked Tyson to escort her down to his car to take her back to her hotel. He said he was extremely tired and needed to grab some sleep and she should find her way down to the car.

    Washington didn’t say anything to anyone in the lobby, didn't call the police, didn't say anything to the driver. She didn't call the police until many hours later and after she went through a dance routine and other parts of her schedule.

    What she exhibited is not the behavior of a rape victim.


    But it looks like the woman may have gotten some money.

    "Mike Tyson has settled the civil suit filed against him by the beauty contestant he was convicted of raping four years ago, the boxer's lawyer said Wednesday. Nathan Dershowitz would not say how much money - if any - the settlement involves. Desiree Washington filed the civil suit against Tyson in federal court in June 1992, seeking unspecified damages for assault, battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress. Trial had been scheduled for July 24. Tyson was released from prison in March."

    I would doubt he did it but some are incredibly gullible.
