Johan Santana Offered Accuser Cash Settlement

8/12/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Johan Santana made a hefty financial settlement offer to the woman suing him for an alleged sexual assault.

Johan Santana Settlement
According to sources close to the case, attorneys for the NY Mets pitcher have been negotiating with the accuser's attorneys for months ... trying to stave off the civil lawsuit which ultimately was filed Monday in Florida.

Another source tells us the settlement package that Santana eventually offered was in the seven figures ... but the alleged victim rejected it.

Santana has claimed the sexual encounter was consensual.

Settlement = Guilty

She should have took the million dollars. These high-profile rape cases are not easy to prove without witnesses.

bahhh    

What is it with these athletes and alleged assaults...??? Must be a power thing or possibly some entitlement thing. Whether or not the bimbos are drunk at the time, it takes two. If these athletes truly worried about their careers or even their self-respect they would avoid these ho's. This kind of humiliation is not worth a couple minutes of fun! Save their millions and use their hand for Gods sake! lol :p

Maybe she doesn't want the money but justice. You can't put a price on emotional and physical abuse of the magnitude! Come on idiots!

Above Poster: "Settlement = Guilty"

The guy has millions upon millions of dollars. Maybe he doesn't want this to drag on like the Roethlisberger civil suit and have his name attached to a rape case for years. Oh, and the offer to settle isn't admissible in court anyhow...so no, it doesn't mean he's guilty of anything.
