Statement from Plaintiff Britney Taylor:
“As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision. 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. I will cooperate with the NFL and any other agencies; however, at this time, I respectfully request that the media please respect my privacy.”
***10/8/19 UPDATE – The civil case against Antonio Brown has now been filed in state court. Federal case voluntarily dismissed. A strategic decision was made to move the case to State court as additional counsel has joined Ms. Taylor’s legal team.
***11/20/19 UPDATE – “Today, Antonio Brown countersued the woman he raped and blamed her for the self-destructive conduct that led to the demise of his NFL career. In the past, Defendant Brown has used intimidation to avoid responsibility for his actions. However, Mrs. Taylor will not be bullied and remains steadfast in holding Defendant Brown accountable.”
Feelings are mixed throughout Tampa as he is no longer a part of the Bucs team. Tampa car accident lawyer, and Tampa sports fan, Dennis Hernandez says,”it’s been interesting, but we’re not too sad to see him go.”
