Browns star QB Deshaun Watson’s offseason marred by new deposition in ongoing sexual misconduct lawsuit

Deshaun Watson, a quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, has been in the news due to allegations of sexual harassment. The Browns’ star is recently scheduled to give a deposition in the 25th sexual misconduct lawsuit.

Watson has previously been accused of sexual harassment on numerous occasions. The quarterback had to make amends while playing for the Texans after 24 women accused him of acting inappropriately toward them during massage therapy. The QB declared him innocent in those cases denying all the wrongdoing in March 2022.

Why aren't NFL players speaking out on Deshaun Watson?

“With my legal team and my clinical team, there’s only football questions I can address at this time,” Watson said.

Twenty lawsuits were settled in June, and two Texas grand juries declined to charge the 27-year-old with a crime last year after alleging that Watson had pressured two different women to engage in oral sex while receiving massages. Through ESPN, the quarterback publicly apologized to every woman he had harassed in August.

“I want to say that I’m truly sorry to all of the women that I have impacted in this situation. The decisions that I made in my life that put me in this position I would definitely like to have back, but I want to continue to move forward and grow and learn and show that I am a true person of character, and I am going to keep pushing forward.” 

Following the cases, Deshaun violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and as a result, received an 11-game suspension and a $5 million fine. 

The 25th Lawsuit against Deshaun Watson and Its’ consequences

The quarterback didn’t appear to be feeling guilty about his previous disgusting behavior as he was again accused of the 25th lawsuit, which was filed on October 13, 2022. This lawsuit was brought by Anissah M. Nguyen and the Universal Law Group on behalf of “Jane Doe,” but it does not seem to be connected to the earlier lawsuits.

In order to give an oral deposition in the 25th sexual misconduct lawsuit, Watson will now need to show up in Harris County District Court in Houston on April 10.

According to the court document, DW must also bring any correspondence between him and the plaintiff between December 2020 and January 2021 that is “relative to or regarding Defendant’s meeting with the Plaintiff” on December 18, 2020, at the Houstonian.

Watson committed to a record-breaking five-year, $230 million fully guaranteed contract with the Cleveland Browns last offseason, albeit, it appears that all of his money and reputation are being wasted as a result of sexual harassment allegations.
