Former San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins star defensive end Dana Stubblefield was charged with raping someone "incapable of giving consent" this week.
Not only does Stubblefield claim he is "completely innocent of all allegations," his lawyer says that his accuser is not mentally disabled - as she claims.
Attorney Ken Rosenfeld told TMZ Sports that the accuser has a criminal history and has accepted plea deals in the past. He says that judges "wouldn't have let a mentally disabled person do that." The woman is said to have run an Avon business in the past, "which proves she's a competent person," according to Rosenfeld.
Stubblefield himself addressed the accusations.
"This is an issue that is very close to me," Stubblefield said. "One of my primary charities is Special Olympics, something that is true and dear to my heart. That is why these allegations hurt me so badly. I'm not a perfect man, however these allegations coming against me, coming a year after a consensual encounter with another woman are all totally false."
Prosecutors claim Stubblefield raped the accuser at his home in April of last year on a job interview after finding her on a babysitting website.
