Judge rejects mistrial in Derrick Rose rape case

In Hernandez's note, which was submitted by the plaintiff's attorney in an attempt to convince the judge to keep the alleged victim's name out of Rose's trial, Hernandez insisted she would be able to offer anonymity to people who came forward to accuse others of rape.

Hernandez last month wrote a letter lodged in federal court in Los Angeles confirming that the department is looking into sexual abuse allegations in connection with a rape complaint against National Basketball Association star Derrick Rose. They claimed they were shared with the defense, though they couldn't prove it.

He says he will instruct jurors that the texts were disclosed recently and allow defense lawyers to question the accuser about the messages.

"I'm not going to dismiss it now", Fitzgerald said. "However, this is an ongoing investigation and we will continue to collaborate with the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office as part of our investigation". Before her letter, it was unclear whether or not there was an investigation.

Defense lawyer Mark Baute said the newly revealed text messages were the best evidence the defense had that the woman had filed a false rape claim after being "dumped by texts" from Rose.

Whittier police said they found a firearm at the scene of the detective's death but won't confirm it was her service revolver.


He said Detective Nadine Hernandez had once told him "there's no rape case here".

If Derrick Rose is somehow connected to the death of the LAPD officer then that would be tragic for all involved, including the National Basketball Association.

As for now, police have ruled out any indications of foul play, despite Hernandez being a lead detective on such a high profile case.

The LAPD issued a statement, saying: "Detective Hernandez was among several detectives working on the Derrick Rose case at the time of her death".

The detective had not been expected to testify at the civil trial, Anand said.
