Don't worry. The bluemoon detectives have finally got to the bottom of the case.

It's pretty amazing how people think that a pay off is an indication of guilt in a rape case.

It is a he said/she said crime. It comes down to who the jury believes. If a person is innocent they have a 50% chance of being guilty if the accuser is credible and a good liar. If a person accused has the money, they should absolutely make a payoff. Otherwise you're risking your life and freedom on a coin flip. There have been multiple occasions of innocent men being imprisoned for a rape they didn't commit.

However, to your original point if that interview is real it doesn't look good for him. Although, if I'm Ronaldo's solicitor I would be looking at getting this thrown out, since she took a pay off to keep this situation hush hush and has broken that agreement.
You could sue someone to get the settlement money back, but I'm pretty sure you can't buy your way out of a criminal case.

I think it happens all the time. People just drop charges. You can even threaten your way out of criminal charges.

Yeah, but there's nothing to stop them going to the police later on, other than the threat of being sued for the money back. It's not like the money makes the crime disappear and they can always choose to bring a criminal case later. At least to my knowledge.

I don’t get how people can be named in the media/news when an unfounded allegation is made? Only when convicted should anybody be named, well in my opinion. This would prevent people being labelled and having their lives ruined by spurious claims.

Take Chad for example, spent a couple of years banged up and persecuted for what?! Because some woman drank too much and couldn’t remember the night before!
This would be the logical thing to do. But we live in the world full of nosey bastards. These stories should only be made publi****il a verdict is given. No one knows what happened between Ronaldo and this woman. By the sound of things though, Ronaldo does seem guilty.

The same couldn’t be said about Ched Evans. The girl who stitched him up should’ve done some time.

It's fair to say the money is irrelevant to him but, with money comes the ability to hire the biggest legal team (won't say best) and paying out cash. I don't accept that its a level playing field in law, how many times in all crimes have we all said if that was me rather than a rich person the result would have been different.....the mud sticks. Just look at Michael Jackson.....it's amazing what wealth can do.

Ronaldo does seems guilty, that’s because we only have one side of the story which is the claimants/prosecution. However, there’s another side of the story, Ronaldo's, should it be confirmed that some of the emails are genuine and he’s mentioned she did say no, then that should be that.

Yeah I agree, that Chad Evans woman should have to do time. It does make me wonder, if Chad would have made a payment in the first instance to try and make it all go away and not be labelled for the rest of his life.

Upon reading the speigel report/story, it mentions a form of disability, so I guess this is how they will get around the NDA/payment but, I’m no contract law expert. Tin hat time here in my opinion it all smells a bit fishy. Yep and I’m going to say it, is it just a case of the money received has dried up and it’s time to try and milk the cow again? I guess nobody will ever now the truth other than him and her.

No quite simply means no if he's done it them I hope he gets some serious jail time. That being said he'll be tried and found innocent and guilty by the media long before he enters a court.

Especially in the US where there are no reporting restrictions around a court case. The media are free to speculate as much as they wish.

I do prefer our system on that.
