Pete Rose Accused of Sexual Relationship With Teen

Disgraced former baseball great Pete Rose is accused of initiating a sexual relationship with a teenage girl in the 1970s, according to a sworn statement from the alleged victim. A court document was filed in Philadelphia on Monday by the woman who said she was “14 or 15 years old” when the relationship began. Rose, who admits to the relationship but claims she was actually 16, will not face criminal charges because the statute of limitations has expired. The allegations were unearthed as part of a defamation lawsuit Rose filed against John Dowd, who conducted the investigation into Rose’s gambling nearly 30 years ago, which led to his dismissal from Major League Baseball.
