Patriots Receiver Antonio Brown Accused Of Rape In Lawsuit
September 10, 2019 at 11:59 pm

BOSTON (CBS/AP) New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of rape by a former trainer.

Britney Taylor says Brown sexually assaulted her on three occasions, according to a civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida. No criminal charges have been filed.

Brown has denied the allegations. Darren Heitner, a lawyer representing Brown, told The Associated Press his client plans to countersue.

He will pursue all legal remedies to not only clear his name, but to also protect other professional athletes against false accusations, Heitner said in a statement.

Heitner said Brown and Taylor had a consensual personal relationship.

The New York Times first reported about the lawsuit Tuesday night.

The AP and CBS Boston do not ordinarily name the alleged victims of sex assaults, but Taylor was identified in the federal lawsuit and was quoted in a statement provided by her lawyer, David Haas.

As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision, Taylor said. I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault. Speaking out removes the shame that I have felt for the past year and places it on the person responsible for my rape.
