Ben Roethlisberger announcement will be made at 2 p.m. ET Monday in the Baldwin County Courthouse in Milledgeville, Ga.
Ben “Big Ben” Roethlisberger has a big day coming up on Monday, April 12th, and it’s not a Super Bowl appearance. The Georgia DA who has been investigating the sexual assault accusation made by a 20 year old college student.
The complaint against Roethlisberger was filed March 5 by a 20-year-old female student at Georgia College & State University, located in Milledgeville. Roethlisberger, 28, who has quarterbacked Pittsburgh to two Super Bowl titles, has a home at a lakeside community in central Georgia and was visiting Milledgeville with a group of acquaintances.
The case has been under investigation by Milledgeville policed and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, a state agency. Milledgeville police chief Woodrow Blue announced Wednesday that the investigative file had been turned over the previous evening to Bright, according to USA Today.
The district attorney in Georgia who will make the call on whether to prosecutePittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on a sexual assault complaint has scheduled a press conference for Monday to announce his decision.
“The investigation, interviews, and report in the Roethlisberger matter have been completed and reviewed,” said a statement issued Friday by District Attorney Fred Bright, who said the announcement will be made at 2 p.m. ET Monday in the Baldwin County Courthouse in Milledgeville, Ga.
If the decision is made that there is merit for a sexual assault case, then Ben Roethlisberger’s life is about to get a whole lot more stressful.
However, I have no doubt that Ben Roethlisberger has an entire team of highly paid attorneys standing by watching and waiting for the decision, and ready to move into action if needed.
It will be interesting to see how this all unfolds, especially since the NFL is getting ready to kick things back off for a new season.
How will this all impact Ben Roethlisberger’s upcoming season?
We have yet to hear anyone from the Pittsburgh Steeler’s organization comment on this matter.
Let’s see what happens on Monday at 2pm.
