Details on the LAPD Investigating Knicks' Derrick Rose for Rape

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Derrick Rose could be facing more than a civil suit, after it was reported that the LAPD has started a criminal investigation as well, per Jedd Legum.

In a letter addressed to the lawyer of Rose’s “Jane Doe” accuser, the LAPD confirmed they have an open criminal investigation regarding the rape accusations levied against the New York Knicks guard.

Notably, the detective, Nadine Hernandez, argues that maintaining the victim’s anonymity “is an invaluable investigative aid to investigators.” The department plans to maintain her anonymity “throughout the criminal investigation being handled by the Los Angeles Police Department.”

The media, to this point, has used the absence of a criminal investigation to justify the relatively scant coverage of rape allegations against the former MVP of the NBA.

Rose’s accuser is seeking $21.5 million in civil damages.
