A college athlete gets in trouble with the law and lawyers up pretty quickly. Then the questions start. How did he find an attorney so fast? Who's paying for the lawyer? And why does he need a lawyer if he's innocent. (This last one can be dispelled quickly -- anyone charged with a crime should hire a lawyer.)
But the first two are far more interesting, especially following news that the University of Tennessee will pay eight women $2.48 million dollars to settle sexual assault claims against student-athletes, and will also stop giving out a list of local lawyers to athletes.
