If he is not innocent then how can he be forgiven by God if he is not repentant? To be forgiven the Bible says one must repent and turn around from his sin. Part of repenting is admitting your sin or guilt.
If Ray Lewis truly committed this crime and truly became a Christian, the first thing he would need to do to have a clear concience and standing before God would be to admit this heinous crime and turn himself in to the authorities. As a Christian he must render his "due to Cesar" and pay for his crime.
One can claim to be a Christian, accepted Jesus .. blah blah. However if you don't act in harmony with your belief it means nothing. Merely claming the latter is not some magical get out of jail free card.
Funny thing about the "deathbed repentence" it only works if it's sincere. If you plan in advance to do it and hope to get in on a "technicality" it doesn't work.
