I wasn't there, and from what I saw it looked like his entourage were in the wrong, BUT Ray saying he "ran away" when the fight broke out doesn't even SOUND right? He didn't say he was nowhere near the incident. He didn't say he "walked" away. He said he "ran away".
Does Ray come across as a guy who's going to run from a fight? Sorry, that seems suspect to me. Ray doesn't strike me as a coward and he's effectively asking us to believe that he and his posse had someone outnumbered and when two of the people starting swinging at him and his FIVE homies...he ran like a scared little girl. That doesn't even SOUND right.
The DA didn't prove their case even though he was covered in blood in the back of a limo. They got him for "obstruction of justice". Uh...okay.
I don't know all the facts of the case, but it kind of looks like the DA decided to do a "Nate Newton. In other words the guy is a popular sports figure for the local team so let's not knock ourselves out trying to build a case against him and let' stack the jury with people who bleed black and purple.
The prosecutors who went after Ray probably got his autograph after they reached their plea deal for "obstruction of justice" when they would have gone for:
Obstruction of Justice
Accessory to MURDER
had the defendant been Ray Lewis the construction worker instead of Ray Lewis the Football player.
So a lot of speculation ? Thats all you have. I dont bleed purple but the man wasnt convicted of murder
Joseph Sweeting and Reginald Oakley had hoped the jury would find they acted in self defense. It took only 5 hours for the unanamous veridct acquitting them of all charges. Oakely hugged his lawyer. Sweeting put his head down on the defense table
so the guys who Ray ratted out were found what? Oh yeah I guess they got the NFL superstar treatment too right? And given the facts
of the case do you think he would have been convicted with the accessory to murder charge as a contruction worker? Probably not Mr. Assumptionosaurus
