Public Heroes, Private Felons: Athletes & Crimes Against Women
Jeff Benedict (au). While arrests of celebrated college & pro athletes for crimes against women escalate, popular sports figures routinely escape accountability for their offenses. Shielded by a lucrative sports industry that fosters the athleteís positive image as role model to the nationís youth, few players are successfully prosecuted & they rarely face sanctions on their eligibility to play. Benedict provides an in-depth examination of several incidents of rape, gang rape, & assault by successful sports figures. He confronts such controversial issues as race, class, the groupie phenomenon, the sexually permissive lifestyle of many athletes, the consensual sex defense, & the sports industryís indifference to recruiting or drafting talented athletes with criminal records.
