Adam Schefter's Deshaun Watson tweet why victims stay silent
Share this @internewscast.com

Tony Buzbee, the plaintiffs’ attorney who filed over two dozen lawsuits against Deshaun Watson, took aim at ESPN insider Adam Schefter.

Buzbee held a press conference Thursday, after the NFL appealed Judge Sue Robinson’s ruling on a six-game suspension for Watson, believing the punishment was too light.

The attorney addressed the fact that Watson was not ultimately charged with crimes in Texas over the allegations that he sexually assaulted the massage therapists he represented in civil litigation.

“We believe the elected DA failed these women,” Buzbee said. “It was frustrating but it was expected. There are more than 463,000 incidents of sexual assault in the United States each year. 70 percent of those are never reported to the police. Less than 1 percent of those ever lead to a conviction.”

He then took aim at Schefter, who when Watson was not charged, tweeted, “This is why Deshaun Watson, from the beginning, welcomed a police investigation: He felt he knew that the truth would come out. And today, a grand jury did not charge him on any of the criminal complaints.”

Buzbee indicated that the ESPN NFL reporter had never spoken to him throughout this long legal process, and blamed the general tone of the tweet for why more victims do not come forward.

Plaintiffs' attorney Tony Buzbee slammed Adam Schefter for his tweet about Deshaun Watson after a Texas grand jury declined to press charges.

“We all know about the tweet that was sent out, from a so-called insider, not somebody that’s ever spoken to me — if there’s more of an insider, I don’t know who it is, other than me — but this is the kind of reaction we received,” Buzbee said. “These kinds of tweets, this kind of foolishness, is exactly why people do not pursue justice.”

Schefter apologized for the tweet shortly after he sent it.

“This was a poorly worded tweet that deserves a proper response. It was intended to provide insight into the strategy of Watson’s legal team from its POV,” he wrote. “I should have been clearer. As legal experts have explained, a lack of an indictment alone does not mean someone is innocent.”

All but one accuser have settled their civil suits against Watson for undisclosed sums.
