Roethlisberger accuser offers deal

Pittsburgh Tribune Review - [Full Article]

The woman who claims QB Ben Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her at a Nevada resort has offered to drop her civil lawsuit if he admits that the assault occurred and writes a letter of apology.

The Steelers QB also must agree to pay $100,000 to the Committee to Aid Abused Women or some similar entity, according to a letter that the woman's attorney, Calvin Dunlap, wrote to Roethlisberger's lawyers Aug. 31 and submitted to a Nevada court Friday in the latest in a series of court filings in the case.

The woman claims Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her July 11, 2008, at the Harrah's Lake Tahoe Hotel and Casino, where she worked as a VIP concierge and he was attending a celebrity golf tournament. She filed a civil lawsuit in Reno in July of this year.

Roethlisberger, 27, has denied assaulting the 31-year-old woman, who has never gone to police.
