During a radio interview with WEEI in Boston, attorney Harry Manion talked about a case involving Roethlisberger at a Las Vegas nightclub that he claimed had the same outcome as the one in Georgia.
"Six months ago I was retained by a client of mine and a close friend to investigate allegations against Ben Roethlisberger in a Las Vegas nightclub that were absolutely identical to this Georgia girl's story," Manion told WEEI.
KDKA confirmed the comments through Manion's office. His office also said that Manion would not be commenting further on the situation.
Manion, who is a partner with Cooley Manion Jones, LLP, told the radio station that the history with Roethlisberger is troubling.
"The outcome was that the young woman did not want to proceed, and we did not take any action. There is a history here, and I can't say any further because we never proceeded with it, but there is a history here that is just super troubling," Manion told WEEI.
While charges were not filed in Georgia after sexual assault allegations, Roethlisberger could face some disciplinary action from the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL.
The Steelers ownership and the commissioner have both expressed concern that Roethlisberger continues to put himself in situations where he then becomes accused of wrongdoing.
