Derrick Rose maybe in more trouble, he is now the center of a criminal investigation about the rape allegations that’s against him.
According to The NY Post:
The letter, written by an LAPD detective, noted that the alleged victim “exercised her right to confidentiality” when filing the report. The letter — and the detective’s testimony — will be used to persuade the judge in the $21.5 million civil case to change his ruling allowing Jane Doe’s identity to be revealed.
That trial is slated to begin Oct. 4, meaning Rose could miss multiple Knicks preseason games and practices if he doesn’t settle the suit. Meanwhile, the LAPD wrote that Jane Doe’s identity will remain anonymous throughout its separate investigation.
In an interview with the Daily News, the 30-year-old accuser said she desperately wants to remain anonymous to keep this a secret from her family. She also said at the time that she didn’t pursue criminal charges against Rose because she feared it would mean she needed to reveal her identity.
“I’m not familiar with the law,” she told The News about two weeks ago.
“I didn’t know the difference between civil and criminal and all the different concepts and language of the law. But I knew that if I came forward to the police, my identity would be revealed and I would have no control of the case and what was required of me.”
Rose has been silent on the subject but will be speaking at Knicks Media Day on Monday morning. Knicks president Phil Jackson said the point guard is not overly concerned with the allegations.”He’s aware of it, but it’s not keeping him up at night,” Jackson said.
