Carroll Shelby- Sex Offender?

I'm sure I don't have to explain who Shelby is, but if you don't know, click here.

Full story here.

He has pending charges of sexual assault from his recently laid off assistant. He says he laid her off because he's getting older and no longer needs her to do things. She claims he laid her off after a co-worker raped her and Shelby, himself, assaulted her.

I'm glad I am not rich, a starlet, famous, etc. Seems these are the qualifications for lawsuits these days. Any one with money is a target. It's sad really. He's in his 80's. Why would you let someone who is so old and fragile assault you? Would you not break his hip? I find this very hard to believe.

Think he did it?

Hard to say. The lack of a criminal case does seem to cast doubts on the merits. But considering how high the burden of proof is, she may not want to go through the experience for a slim chance of conviction. Given what I know about Shelby though, I don't doubt at 88 he couldn't still kick ass and I don't disbelieve what she has said about the work environment. Wouldn't surprise me. The truth of it is, sounds like only 3 people really know what happened. And if Shelby and his male employee are telling the truth the reality is it, it's cheaper to settle, throw a bunch of money at this lady and make her go away than it is to pay the lawyers and prove the truth.

That sucks. I doubt he ever did anything of the sort. The only thing he is guilty of is molesting cars in a good way. Haha.

I call bull**** but will be following this to see what unravels. Seems to me that anyone working in a "hostile environment" would not stay there long unless they approved of being subjected to such treatment.

That's how I feel. I worked in one job and had sexual innuendos thrown at me all day. When I started getting uncomfortable, I voiced my opinion on the matter. When nothing was done, I bounced. I didn't even give them time to continue the verbal assault- much less let it get to physical assault. I guess if the moneys good, I could put up with it longer...
