Murphy acquitted of sexual abuse charges
By Pam Easton, The Associated Press
HOUSTON Hall of Fame basketball player Calvin Murphy just wanted to bask in the moment after a jury cleared him Monday of sexually abusing five of his 10 daughters more than a decade ago.

"For right now, I am just going to take a step back and enjoy this moment," he said as he left the courthouse. "As you can tell, I am a very emotional person. I carry my feelings on my sleeve. And to hear that people believed in me and found me innocent of those charges, my heart just swelled up and started beating very fastly in my body."

Prosecutors say Murphy tried to maintain a public image of having only one family, even though he has 14 children with nine women. He only married one of the women...

Good God...

Its kinda like ODB... In related news, ODB's "wife" cannot prove she was actually married to the man because she is yet to find her marriage certificate. If she cannot find it, his 12 kids have legal claim to his estate. But the ODB was cremated, making DNA testing difficult.
