ROETHLISBERGER SEXUAL ASSAULT INVESTIGATION DVDs TO BE AIRED ON WPXI



Law enforcement agents will release more than 50 DVDs containing audio, videotaped interviews, and photographs from the completed investigation into allegations that Ben Roethlisberger sexually assaulted a 20-year-old college student, reports Rick Earle of WPXI, who is in Georgia. As you well know, no criminal charges were filed against Roethlisberger in the case.

The DVDs will be released at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, and WPXI plans on airing the material, including audio and video interviews with the accuser as well as the questioning of members of both groups.

Also on the DVDs are photos from the investigation at the Capital City Club and interviews with Steeler lineman Willie Colon and Roethlisberger bodyguard/Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Ed Joyner.

As far as other Pittsburgh TV stations go, WTAE has an article on the subject and urges readers to "Stay with Channel 4 Action News and ThePittsburghChannel.com for more coverage on Wednesday after the DVDs are released," which leads me to believe that they'll be airing them as well. KDKA has a similar story on the DVDs and prompts readers to "Stay with KDKA for the latest developments." 

In short, it looks like we'll have much more to talk about on Wednesday than simply re-hashing Stephen Strasburg's 14 strikeouts against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Wow.

This seems...unethical.

It seems to me like the prosecutor knew he didn't have enough for a conviction, so instead he's just going to release all of this stuff and let Benji get crucified in the court of public opinion.

I agree with Louis. It sounds to me like DA Bright got wind of the rumor that Ben wants to sit on Oprah's couch and cry about what a poor wronged innocent soul he is. So they're releasing all this stuff to let any half-way competent interviewer make him look like a total schmuck.

Ben does a pretty good job of looking like a total schmuck on his own... but I digress.

Yea Chip I am sure that is their intent for releasing everything... to give an "interviewer" more material.

Let's see...a small southern town.. I wonder if they are trying to make a name for themselves. It sure looks like it. The process exposed the how terrible they are at doing their job and they are seeking some retribution.

Ben is an ass. He did bad things and as Louis pointed out needs no help making himself look like a schmuck. However, he should never do a " sit-down interview" with any one. It will do him no good.
