10 Celebrities Who Were Accused Of Sexual Assault

10. Mike Tyson – Raped 18-Year-Old

Mike Tyson was a force to be reckoned with during his prime days as a prized fighter. Rising to meteoric heights the boxing world had not seen since the days of Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, the stalwart prodigy’s career took a knockout blow when he was accused, and convicted, of rape. The victim was an 18-year-old young woman named Desiree Washington. Ms. Washington claimed that Tyson had raped her in a hotel room after requesting her presence for some R&R during a party. Tyson vehemently pleaded guilty against her accusations but was convicted of rape after merely 10 hours of judicial deliberation. Interestingly, while Tyson was sentenced to 6 years in a federal penitentiary he only served 3 years of his sentence, and went on to win the WBC title by defeating Frank Bruno a year after his release.
