There's a conversation happening here.
Would a clean-cut, straight-laced, Ivy League-educated District Attorney in the middle of Colorado spend two weeks poring over evidence of rape allegations involving the planet’s biggest basketball star and then decide to file charges … on a whim?
It seems doubtful.
Or are there small-town politics at work in a case involving celebrity of this magnitude, and the sheriff’s arrest and announcement of such arrest compel the DA – who’s all of 34 years old – to bring charges to appease the town’s real power brokers despite his better judgment.
For one, I do not have the answer.
