On Thursday night, attorney Eric Schwartzreich told CBS Miami Brown is “innocent of these charges. Hopefully we’ll get bond tomorrow and he’ll be acquitted of all charges.”
Brown, who is a free agent, played nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was traded to the Oakland Raiders last year but released before ever playing a regular season game following several off-the-field incidents. He was then signed by the New England Patriots, who released Brown in September after a second woman in 10 days accused him of sexual misconduct.MORE NEWS: Connecticut Becomes 1st State To Make All Prison Phone Calls Free
