The judge presiding over the Rose vs Jane Doe sexual assault civil suit has announced his verdict, and much to DRose’s relief, he was found not guilty of all charges. There was quite a bit of character shaming by both sides, so much so that the judge considered a mistrial, but he eventually decided against it and instead handed down a not guilty verdict to Derrick. The damage has been done, though, and this is going to leave a sour taste for many NBA fans, considering that the details of this case were very public, and Rose did not come off in a very positive light. He sounded incredibly ignorant throughout the trial, but luckily for him the case still went his way. Rose is still expected to miss tonight’s preseason game.
