| ||Who is he?|
Mike Tyson, former heavyweight champion of the world - and the youngest ever boxer to hold the title. He has apparently retired, but I would not be surprised to see him and Lennox Lewis go at in the near future.
What did he do?
On July 18, 1991, Tyson met Desiree Washington, a Miss Black America contestant, at a pageant rehearsal. The pair go to Tyson's hotel room in the early morning hours. The following day, Washington filed a complaint with police alleging Tyson raped her. On Sept. 9, A special grand jury indicts Tyson on rape and three other charges. Two days later, he is booked in Indianapolis and released on $30,000 cash bond.
Sept. 11, 1991
Yep, alledgedly charged with rape and three other charges.
After nine hours of deliberation, Tyson is found guilty on one count of rape and two counts of deviate sexual conduct. The counts carry a maximum penalty of 60 years in prison, but Superior Court Judge Patricia Gifford sentences Tyson to 10 years in prison, suspending four. He served three years.
