Sitton: Allegations against Underwood are 'bogus'
Josh Sitton was one of the seven Green Bay Packers in the condo in Lake Delton, Wis., and he’s upset his name has been associated with a sexual assault investigation. He also said the man authorities are focusing on – Brandon Underwood – is innocent.
“It’s been a little stressful because you know your name is involved with something,” Sitton said, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “But it’s over now, it’s been set straight on who’s been cleared. But it still sucks because it leaves a cloud over your name even though you weren’t involved with anything.”
Sitton said that all the players at the condo party volunteered to meet with police because they had nothing to hide. The police are expected to give the case to the district attorney today, but it’s questionable whether or not the evidence will support charges.
“I’m a man of high character and high values and I don’t stand for any (expletive) like that,” Sitton said. “Just to have my name tainted is disappointing. I’m the most disappointed that our names even got out (in public) because there are no allegations against us.”
Sitton is also the first teammate to come out and publicly support Underwood, who has been accused by two women of sexual assault. The police have said that originally the women claimed to have been assaulted by multiple men and then changed their story.
“I know Underwood is innocent when it comes to any legal issues,” Sitton said. “That’s my personal opinion about that. Legally, my opinion is that he didn’t do anything wrong or whatever. The allegations are very bogus.”
