Ben Roethlisberger Girlfriend. If having a hot girlfriend could be used as a defense against accusations of sexual assault, then Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could say “I got me a hot girlfriend. And she’s a hot Canadian actress too.”
Unfortunately for him (and fortunately for sexual assault victims in particular and society in general), there’s no such thing as a “hot girlfriend defense”. So Ben must face his accuser using other pieces of evidence. (Backstory: For those of you who don’t know, a certain casino employee is accusing Ben of sexual assualt. Read our earlier post below.)
But let’s talk about the gorgeous Ben Roethlisberger girlfriend: Melissa Peregrym. Missy, as she is more popularly known, is a Canadian model/actress who was born in Montreal, Canada but who grew up in Vancouver. According to wikipedia, she is a very athletic person and was heavily involved in soccer, snowboarding, basketball, and outdoor sports. Then she became a model. Then she became an actress. Then she met Ben. Then she became his girlfriend. The end.
Andrea McNulty vs. Ben Roethlisberger: Sexual Assault Lawsuit (posted 20 July 2009). Andrea McNulty, an employee of Harrah’s casino in Nevada, has filed a case against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger alleging that he asked her to go to his room to fix the television but he then sexually assaulted her.
Ben’s lawyer, Attorney David Cornwell, denied the allegation and issued the following statement: “This weekend Andrea McNulty served Ben Roethlisberger with a civil complaint accusing him of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Ben has never sexually assaulted anyone; especially Andrea McNulty. The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct. If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated.”
Attorney Cornwell adds: “Ben will not be baited into a public discussion about his personal life, but we will defend him vigorously. The limited value that Ms. McNulty derived from public disclosure of these viciously false allegations is the only value she will ever receive from Ben in this case.”
What do we think of this case? Nah, we’re neither judge nor juror so we’ll leave the matter to them people who are tasked to decide whether McNulty is a liar or whether Roethlisberger is a rapist.
