Miami Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer :: Miami PD Investigating 49ers’ Kaepernick, 2 Other NFLers for Alleged Sexual Assault

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is currently being investigated for a possible sexual assault that occurred earlier this month in Miami, according to a report.

Reports indicate that the investigation is in its beginning stages. No charges have been filed yet.

The Special Victims Unit is apparently looking into the allegations.

According to Miami police, they are investigating a “suspicious incident” that also involves 49ers receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette.

The woman apparently told police that Kaepernick joined her in the bedroom and undressed her, but the two did not have sexual relations. Patton and Lockette allegedly “peeked” into the bedroom and she told them to leave.

The report states that the woman woke up in the hospital the next morning with no further memories from the night before and was unaware of how she ended up in the hospital.
