Big Ben's Lawyers: Emails Shall Set Him Free

8/19/2009 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger's lawyers claim they have emails and IMs proving Andrea McNulty's sexual assault allegations are a load of bull -- including one IM she sent after the alleged incident saying, "I would date Ben Roethlisberger."

Alleged Andrea McNulty emails
Ben's attorney David Cornwell just released a document containing emails and IMs, which he says were sent between Andrea and her fake online boyfriend "Ben the Soldier."

In the docs, Cornwell says Andrea sent one "light-hearted" email to fake Ben around 12:41 AM on July 12, 2008 -- which would have occurred a mere 1.5 - 2 hours after she claims the real Ben assaulted her.

Cornwell says the email "proves that, rather than crying in her truck in the parking lot, and driving away, distraught and crying [which she claims in her lawsuit] McNulty was back at her workstation sending light-hearted emails and engaging in benign chatter with her online boyfriend.

Then, on the afternoon of July 12 -- one day after the alleged incident -- Cornwell claims McNulty wrote, "This golf tournament has been really fun ... speaking of which I need to head over to a dinner with your lookalike [referring to Ben Roethlisberger] and a few others before heading out..."

Ben's lawyers claim she sent another IM to fake Ben in December of '08, saying "I would date Ben Roethlisberger."

Cornwell attached a press release with the emails that included some advice for Andrea -- "McNulty should abandon her lawsuit immediately and admit that Ben Roethlisberger did not rape her."

What the heck, she sent an email to a fake or made up person also named Ben. That is unstable... I dislike the Steelers, but Ben sounds like he had a one night stand with a wacko. Why would anyone send a fake email to a fake person/account they made up...so she sends the email and then signs on a "Ben the Soldier" to retrieve it???? hun???? CRAZY!

Ryan you are a mental midget. The women wasnt raped sending out emails like that. Ask any women thats been sexual assaulted if they would sent an email like that an hour after being raped and you will get a NO

Oh...really    

People...she didn't send the emails to herself. It was Ben Rothlisbergers WIFE that was the fake Ben! She was jacking with this woman to throw her off from her own hubby. I do think though that if she was emailing ANYONE with these types of messages she wasn't assulted. Sorry but it doesn't add up.

Wow, Ryan is just as stupid as Andrea. You both need put in a mental facility! A raped woman doesn't do that. She is just mad that it didn't turn into more. Hopefully Andrea gets sued for false allegations!

No, Toot, it wasn't Ben Roethlisberger's wife sending the e-mails from Fake Ben the Soldier. Ben Roethlisberger isn't married. The e-mails were from the wife of ANOTHER man McNulty was having an affair with. The wife got even by creating Fake Ben the Soldier, who McNulty supposedly fell in love with. I've read all the e-mails and she not only admits to Fake Ben that she had a breakdown when he broke up with her but that she would love to date QB Ben instead and couldn't wait to hang out with him at dinner. And this is after QB Ben supposedly raped her.

All you people that were taking up for this skank just because you don't like athletes or don't like the Steelers, you are morons. Roethlisberger never raped this crackpot. For the sake of REAL rape victims everywhere, she needs to be JAILED for attempted extortion.

The only victim in this thing is Ben Roethlisberger.

You wrote "Ben , you can have any women you want, I can't believe you wasted any time with woman! She needs to be committed."

This chick was like room service just showing up at her door. Sure he could have done better, but like with room service, when it's late at night and you're hungry, that nasty $12 cheeseburger being delivered to your room seems completely worth it.
