JEFF TEAGUE accused of RAPE!!!
How did Teague rape her exactly? Sounds like he was trying to wingman his bro and the dude went a bit nuts, don't really understand how it's Jeff's fault. Of course this comes out just as he's had a great series against the Bulls.
being charged with RAPE is a very serious charge even if "YOU" weren't the one who actually committed the rape..http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can_you_get_charged_for_watching_someone_get_raped...now obviosuly its too early too find this man guilty of anything...remember the DUKE lacrosse story a couple years ago about that girl who said she was rapped and turned out she lied(and she actually just been accused of attemted murder for stabbing her roomate)...but whenever you can google someones name and the word "RAPE" comes up...obviously can't be a good thing.
You aren't charged with rape. More like accessory to rape. Just because someone on Wiki Answers says so doesn't make it a fact.
dude...its defintelty a fact...accessory to rape and rape while it might not contain the same amount of years in prison...if you are found guilty of being an ACCESSORY of rape you best believe you going to prison...being an accesorry or being the actually one doing the raping...either way you cut it, its a serious charge and in my mind just as dispicable!!!
I understand that rape is serious, but it really doesn't seem like Jeff had any knowledge of what was going on if he asked the girl what happened after noticing she was upset. I understand that being an accessory is bad too, but it just sounds like what happened to Teague could happen to any guy whose friend does something stupid. Is he to be punished for closing a door so his bro could score? It's not as if he forced her in there or anything, I don't know, this is messed up.
If he had ANY knowledge on the situation and didn't report, he can see some prison time are atleast probation/fines.
Nobody knows if he knew his friend was going to do what he did. Let's just hope he had no clue on the situation.
well...I wasnt there...I have no idea the circumstances...when STAR atheltes are accused of rape its always a sticky situation...the he said/she said thing...I will not judge JEFF TEAGUE untill all the facts are out and he has his day in court(if it even goes that far).
paradigm if u think being an accesorry to rape is just as bad as sexually assaulting a woman then ur fu-ckn twisted, altho bad its not the same has actually doing the rape..... idiot
ok..thats your opinion..but calling me twisted and an idiot because I think its dispicable to have knowledge of a woman being raped and not do anything about that????....IMO they are both equally bad...I guess I'm a twisted individual.
ya exactly.... its dispicable to have knowledge of it but to say its the equivelent of pulling ur pants down nd physically raping is absolutley absurd
I just read what they said happened and it appears Teague did not know. Also for something that happened a while ago, it is messed up to put it in the spotlight now to hurt Teague's image.
There is no way of knowing if he had knowledge of what was going on, so this is basically just someone talking about something that MAY have happened 2 years ago after they see the person doing well for themselves. It's too hard to tell who's side of the story is correct, because it's basically word of mouth and no proof.
Can't have a rapist on the team.
I'll say this. If you are talking to a couple guys and they ask you about giving oral sex to them you shouldn't be too surprised if that's what they want.. Then if they ask you to go to their hotel room and you do so willingly you should have an idea the direction his is headed. If one of them asks you to go to the bathroom with them and you do you've put yourself there. Then if one of them asks for oral sex and you give it to them there had better be something more than feeling cornered before you cry rape . At this point you've made a lot of decisions you have to hold your self accountable for.
This does not mean she wasn't raped. I'd need more info. I'd convict anyone who forced her physically, threatened her or wouldn't let her leave etc. But it'd take a lot more than him pulling his pants down in his hotel bathroom with her before I'd hold him accountable for anything much less Teague who's in the other room. She obviously felt bad about the encounter if she contacted the autorities the next day. To me the case for the other guy hinges on why she felt she had no choice. She might not have. The case for Teague is much more muddled. Did he have any idea she wanted out or to stop? Could be, but we need more info.
This is why it's a non-story until more facts come out.
I've been knowing the Teague's for awhile and have gotten to know Jeff pretty well the last several years.
This isn't his personality. He's a quiet, humble, respectful... Shy dude. I can't see him knowing this was going to happen and just letting it go down. He'd have spoken up and said something.
My sympathy goes out to the girl, if she was indeed raped, but I just don't think Teague will get any type of punishment for this. I hate to see his name even involved because he's actually a great kid.
Why is this stuff always reported a couple years later?
I think the media chose to put it out now with Teague getting more spotlight to draw attention to it. If this story came out earlier people would have done the research and it would not be that big of a story. He said She said about a college player with no past history and possibly had no knowledge of this would not have hurt his draft stock or image. Now you put it out there and people who are emotional about rape will automatically brand him without knowing the facts which to me is just as bad as rape itself. I am against with a passion falsely accusing a person especially if you are labeling someone who a very damaging act like rape.
