The streak of criminal defense lawyers proclaiming the innocence of their clients continues, unblemished.

Kenneth Rosenfield, who represents former NFL defensive lineman Dana Stubblefied, says that the pending rape charge against Stubblefield is “a false and completely untrue allegation.”

“This is nothing but a money grab, and an attempt to get money and take advantage of his celebrity status,” Rosenfield said, via NBC Bay Area.

Rosenfeld also said that Stubblefield has taken — and passed — a lie-detector test that will “clearly show” the interaction was consensual.

Although polygraph tests continue to be inadmissible in court, they can be effective in the court of public opinion.

Stubblefield is accused of raping a “developmentally delayed” female who had interviewed for a nanny job. The alleged assault occurred in April 2015.

  1. “This is nothing but a money grab, and an attempt to get money and take advantage of his celebrity status,” Rosenfield said, via NBC Bay Area.

    “Celebrity status”?

    That ship sailed a long time ago.

  2. What would you expect a defense lawyer to say? There must be at least some substance to the accusation in order for charges to be filed. It will be interesting to see how this proceeds. If it’s true, it’s disgusting. If it’s nothing more than a money grab then it’s also disgusting.

    There’s nothing good about this story.

  3. “The streak of criminal defense lawyers proclaiming the innocence of their clients continues, unblemished.”

    I’m shocked, shocked I tell you.

  4. In 2010, a federal judge sentenced the former 49ers star to 90 days in jail for stealing his former girlfriend’s mail. Stubblefield admitted submitting a change of address form so his former girlfriend’s mail, including her unemployment checks, would be delivered to his residence.

    Classy move…

  5. “This is nothing but a money grab, and an attempt to get money and take advantage of his celebrity status,” Rosenfield said, via NBC Bay Area.

    So we’re supposed to believe that his is some kind of elaborate scheme to extort money…by a developmentally disabled person no less. /smdh

  6. Clearly a gold-digger at work, pure money grab. Sad that Dana has to go through this.

  7. What the heck do you expect a defense attorney to say?

    Someone pointed out that there is an issue of consensuality on this. If he did rape her, he should go away for a long time, however, you can’t assume that she can’t consent.

    If she’s old enough to hold a job as a nanny, being responsible for children, she can consent. That does not mean she wasn’t raped, simply that the waters are more murky.

    Something is also off with the delay of a year for the prosecution of this case. If they believe her story, they have DNA, what’s the hold up?

  8. Rosenfeld also said that Stubblefield has taken — and passed — a lie-detector test that will “clearly show” the interaction was consensual.

    How can it be consensual if she mentally challenged??

  9. Developmentally delayed child supervisor? Sounds like the people in charge where i work. All kidding aside, i truly hope this didn’t happen and if it did, throw the book at him.

  10. Yes, we are to believe that Dana found this “developmentally disabled” nanny applicant so enticing that he had to have “consensual” sex with her. A much more believable story than “he raped her”, Mr. Rosenfeld.

  11. Dana Stubblefield’s lawyer doing what he is paid to do.

    Stubblefield is claiming that “the interaction was consensual”?
    So he admits to having sex with a “developmentally delayed” woman.

    Truly a sick and twisted freak.

    What is “developmentally delayed”?????

    Developmental delay is defined as a condition which represents a significant delay in the process of development.

    There is a standard baseline test of cognitive and neurological ability, and how it relates to “average age” of patients.

    People who have suffered some sort of brain/head injuries are given test and assessed compared to their contemporaries.

    Bottom line is anyone who falls into this category has something going on (usually not their doing) and for someone to take advantage of a person like this well lets just say Hell has a special place for people like this…..

  13. Rosenfield: “This is nothing but a money grab, and an attempt to get money and take advantage of his celebrity status.”
    —————–
    Rosenfield is just being brutally honest – about his job.

  14. If she’s developmentally delayed – no way she gave consent.

    Doesn’t matter what she applied for. Anyone who’s ever had to fill a position knows you get about 5x as many applicants that have no business applying for a job (skills wise) than those that make a legitimate talent pool.

    Not a stretch to have someone with some cognitive issues see an ad for a nanny and say “I like kids and playing house – I want the job” and apply.

    Stubbs sees she’s a little behind and calls her back.

    She can’t give consent regardless of why she was there or if she thought she’d be a good nanny.

  15. …….the fact the woman went RIGHT to the police tells me Stupidfield did something to the girl…..I’m glad she had enough mental capacity to go the authorities. As far as him,if he’s found guilty,put him away for a loooooong time.

  16. “There was no indication before Monday, he said, that the accuser had any disabilities. In fact, she has a driver’s license and, in the past, she has filed civil lawsuits in which she represented herself, has been allowed to plead guilty to charges of assault, resisting arrest and failure to appear in court for a hit-and-run charge, he said. None of this would be allowed if she was developmentally disabled, he said.”

    Innocent until proven guilty!!!
