More bad news for Deshaun Watson.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Police Dept. have at least nine reports accusing Watson of sexual misconduct during massage therapy sessions “with search warrant records showing that investigators are eyeing indecent assault — a misdemeanor crime — as a possible criminal charge.”
Three search warrants, signed in October to collect data from Watson’s Instagram and Cash App usage, reportedly shed light to the Houston Police’s criminal investigation into the athlete. The search warrants detail accounts from nine women who say their encounters with Watson devolved from massages to misconduct, according to the report.
The women involved reported that they received Cash App payments after the sessions, with some amounts ranging from $100 to $300. Court records added that in two incidents, the Houston Texans quarterback pressured the women into performing fellatio. One licensed massage therapist told a story of meeting with Watson in June 2020 for a massage without incident. However, the second session at the Memorial-area hotel, he asked her for oral sex.
The woman “felt as if she had no choice,” the investigator wrote.
Watson allegedly did the same thing to another woman at the same hotel in December 2020.
“Watson expressed to her that he wanted to support her small business,” the investigator continued. The investigator added that the oral sex happened and then Watson proceeded masturbated. Instead of receiving the $115 for ther session, Watson paid her $300.
Watson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin, has denied wrongdoing by the quarterback, saying any sexual encounter that occured was completely consensual.
As far as his career goes, Watson has not suited up for the Texans at all in 2021 as they will look to trade him during the offseason, something he requested before his sexual assault allegations.
