Lance Stephenson attempting NBA comeback?
Stephenson has reportedly been working on his game and is interested in a return to the NBA.Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported on Thursday that the Miami Heat recently became aware that veteran swingman Lance Stephenson is looking to get back into the league. The Heat had been looking to fill a vacant roster spot, which ultimately went to big man Dewayne Dedmon.
He allegedly sexually assaulted her in his home, and she woke up there the next morning. He drove her home and remained silent during the car ride, the affidavit says.
The girl reported the incident in November 2020 and, according to the arrest documents, recorded a phone call with Armstrong in December in which he allegedly admitted to having sex with her at his father Lance’s house.
Randy Leavitt, Armstrong’s attorney, claimed to the Austin American-Statesman that the incident was consensual.
“A complete review of the facts will confirm what has been alleged absolutely did not occur and a proper and thorough legal process will exonerate Luke,” Leavitt said.
“What occurred three years ago in high school was not a crime and not a sexual assault. What it was was a consensual relationship then and it continued to be consensual between the two young people with both ultimately going their separate ways. These charges should never have been filed and certainly not three years later.”
