Levin: Kobe talking plea deal for non-sex crime
Harvey Levin via Good Day Live | Self

Posted on 08/04/2004 10:56:48 AM PDT by GAGOPSWEEPTOVICTORY

According to Harvey Levin ("Celebrity Justice") from sources connected with both sides in Eagle, Colorado:

1) Kobe accepts a plea bargain for a non-sex crime misdemeanor such as Third-Degree assault. (misdemeanor, Kobe might get probation, wouldn't have to register as sex offender).

2) Kobe settles the civil case. Pays a financial settlement. Gives letter of apology saying, "that even though Kobe Bryant belived that he was doing nothing wrong, that she felt she had been assaulted in the hotel room, and for that he was sorry."

No plea deals struck, but parties talking about it.

I wouldn't advise him to plea to anything, nor to settle in a proposed civil suit. Send a strong message.

The Loud and Clear Message he SHOULD HAVE gotten is keep it in your pants when you are a married man!

The Florida "incident" release was a shot across the Kobe bow. If the accuser's history is relevant, so is his.

And whatever he does, he can't let his lies to investigators become public. His initial lies are what forced the issue in the first place.

Demanded and performed sex of an unnatural kind to an unwanting party.

KOGO in San Diego just reported that one of the accuser's lawyers said the woman is considering dropping the matter and is discussing it with the prosecutors.

Why would Kobe plead guilty if he is so innocent?

What are you talking about? The girl in Florida said that she's NOT going to testify. And her case PROVES that when a woman tells him to stop, he does.

The attorney said the woman doesn't want her sexual history brought out in open court.

You obviously have zero experience with the criminal court system. Very often times you must plead guilty to a lower offense so as to avoid getting hit with the bigger offense, regardless of how innocent you may think you are.

I notice that this plea agreement talk started after the stories about him groping a woman in florida circulated.

So he's going to file a civil suit where every single thing she's ever done would become public knowledge?

Rape shield laws do NOT cover civil cases.

Kobe's hand print/bruises on her neck (grabbing from behind) is automatic 3rd Degree Assault.

And if both parties say that NORMAL sexual relations were consenual, doesn't that kind of make what happened clear?

The Florida woman was NOT on the witness list from the DA; what does that tell you?

It tells me that that was a leak from the accuser's attorneys trying to bluff Kobe.

That would be neat, if there were any, but there aren't.

What unnatural sex act did he demand?

This is a good deal for Kobe no doubt, but probably on the basis of his ability to pay for a civil suit settlement.

I still think the sex charges could have been proven in court given the offensive nature of what supposedly transpired.

Bluff must have worked since he's now talking plea agreement. How many other skeletons does he have in his closet? The defense already brought out hers.

Apparently to you.

Given her apparent history that week, I don't even know who caused the bruising on her neck.

A sexual act favored by homosexuals. And I don't think it is a coincedence that this story came forward after a new witness appeared yesterday http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2004/magazine/08/03/scorecard0809/index.html

There is absolutely NO testimony to that fact; nor has it been alluded to in the courtroom.

Have you been keeping up with this case at all?

There was NO anal sex.

And the woman in Florida is NOT on the Mark Hurlburt's witness list; that should tell you how much credence the DA put into her testimony.

Yeah remain willfully ignorant. You of course constantly reveal:

1. You failed to read the preliminary hearing testimony.

2. You are a gossip monger quite willing to substitute gossip for facts.

3. You have no understanding of the judical system.

A 10 millon dollar civil suit settlement still looks awfully suspicious. Kind of like the 20 million one that Michael Jackson engineered

I'll be honest I haven't followed this thing closely. I wish they would open up the proceedings and let people see for themselves. That would kill most of the rumors and leaks which are sleaze tactics from both sides. The judge in this case seems to have totally botched it.
