    Re: Culpepper, McKinnie Enter 'Not Guilty' Pleas

    The whole boat deal is a joke and the justice system is as well. Grown men and women getting drunk and freaky happens everyday, just the women see $$$$ and thought hey here's an easy way out. Gotta watch them females if you got the bling. The players will recieve a fine and maybe some community hours at best, gotta remember how our legal system works, you can have 10 DUI's, shoot your neighbor and still get less of a penalty than if you F with someones money.....

    Re: Culpepper, McKinnie Enter 'Not Guilty' Pleas

    IMO

    The charges are not going to be dropped. Once the District Attorney made the formal charges the decision was made to prosecute. Charges mean the cases have been reviewed and there is enough evidence to likely get convictions.

    Now, the players have two choices:

    1. Go to a jury trial. This would give them a chance to be found not guilty, but it also means all the evidence (photos, video and witnesses testimonies, etc.) will be shown, argued and made public.

    2. Plead "no contest" which is just another way of saying "guilty" but without having to say the word. The Prosecutors will sometime offer a no contest plea bargain in exchange for reduced sentences.

    I hope Culpepper can clear his name and prove that he really is innocent. He has already said he is eager to get in front of a court so he CAN clear his name, and he is going to have to. Because I think some of the Vikes fans have a different view of Mr. Daunte.
    Even if he is innocent, he shouldn't have been there in the first please!
    Use your head, Daunte.
    In addition, I don't think they will have enough evidince to do any major damage. But hey, we'll have to wait and see.

    Re: Culpepper, McKinnie Enter 'Not Guilty' Pleas

    Here is another article about it I found on ESPN.

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings players Daunte Culpepper and Bryant McKinnie pleaded not guilty to charges related to a boating party, according to a broadcast report.

    WCCO-TV reported Tuesday night that attorneys for the two players entered the pleas in December in Hennepin County District Court. Each waived initial court appearances slated for Thursday and demanded a jury trial.

    Culpepper and McKinnie and teammates Fred Smoot and Moe Williams each face three misdemeanor charges related to the October boat party on Lake Minnetonka. The four were charged with indecent conduct, disorderly conduct and lewd or lascivious conduct, according to court documents.

    Williams' attorney said he will enter a similar plea for his client on Wednesday, WCCO-TV reported.

    Or, see it for yourself. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2279908

    Re: Culpepper, McKinnie Enter 'Not Guilty' Pleas

    I think that it is so hypocritical that a league whose events feature fans yelling "Kill the Quarterback" can complain about their players engaging in sexual relations with consenting adults on their own free time...just goes to show how puritanical our society is!

    No SEX...but let's take our kids to the next Ahnold shoot 'em up!!!
