Ex-NBA Star Steve Francis Accused Of Sexual Assault

Former NBA player Steve Francis has been accused of sexual assault by a 20 year old woman named Shauna Simien, who was signed to Francis label. The alleged event took place in Texas in May of 2010 when Stein went to Francis office to discuss her contract.

Francis allegedly “groped” the 20-year-old through her clothing. The “groping” occured while the two were talking outside, Francis reached down and grabbed her between the legs.

Simien claims she screamed for him to stop — and that’s when a few of her friends, whom she brought along for protection, rushed over to break things up. She immediately went to police and filed a complaint.

The case has been open for over a year though no charges have been filed. Sounds like one of those he says-she says situations. So far there’s been no response from Francis representatives.


Shauna’s rap alias is Shawna Pat, video and photo added:

On a random but related and probably a tad inappropriate note. Athletes still own record labels? That seems so 2000.
