    Ray Lewis to be Subpoenaed



    Pretty vague as to what or why he's being subpoenaed.

    Shady for Webster to say the least. Curious as to what Ray's connection may be.

    Complete shots in the dark:

    1. Webster's attorney is considering the possibility that his client may testify. In which case Webster will be cross examined and one feature of that cross examination will be that Webster's statement is inconsistent with some things that Webster has said in the past. In which case it might be helpful to have a witness available to testify that Webster did, in the past, give the same version of events he's giving now.

    2. Webster's attorney is hoping that the stars will align in such a way that Lewis could testify that Webster would never do such a thing. Testimony like that is admissible only if the stars align perfectly, but hey, it can happen.

    the opening was a bit of a cheap shot at Ray but I'm clueless as to why he would be subpoenaed

    Webster was born in Miami, attended the U right after Ray left. They never played together, Ray was drafted in 1996 and Webster was a freshman in 1997.

    That is the connection, maybe they are hoping to use Ray as a character witness for sentencing if it ever gets to that. Or maybe they are close and he told Ray something about this incident and they want Ray to testify about it to confirm his story.

    Very odd -- they know there's a subpoena out, which they're reporting on, but they haven't actually seen a copy of it? Somebody just told them there was one, but didn't prove it by actually showing it?

    Because usually, if not always, it either says on it, or on an attachment, what it is they want you to testify about, which would answer their questions about Ray's testimony.

    At least in Maryland, you can find out who has been subpoenaed in a case by reviewing online records rather than seeing actual subpoenas. Just as official, in a way, but no paper to scan & post.

    MD Case Search. A beautiful thing. Wish more states had a similar resource.

    Ray has a reputation for talking to a lot of players throughout the league. Perhaps they are going to ask Ray to testify that Webster made a strong denial to Ray. Which kind of sounds like hearsay, but whatever.

    The comments were deleted for obvious reasons. Lets keep it civil here and leave the stereotypes out of the discussion.

    According to PFT Webster admitted he did have sex with the girl. The question was if it was 11:30 pm the night before her birthday or 12:30 am when she would officially be legal. Unless Ray was there looking at his watch I can't imagine why he is part of this.

    ... and if it's something like that, it would be this one:

    Re: Ray Lewis to be Subpoenaed

    I'm perplexed about Ray being drawn into this, even as a character witness. I don't think that can help much in a case like this, unless Webster is denying ever having sex with this minor, and I don't see how Ray could testify to that. This looks like a real long shot to me.
