Dont see why they would?
Was outside his normal training program.
They've paid him more than enough over the years ..
Was a personal promotional trip and not a club endorsed trip.

There was a media article that came out shortly after the incident which pointed out that clubs would normally pull strings and engage lawyers to protect their asset. But in DeGoey’s case, the club were so pissed off with him getting into trouble yet again, that they left him to fend for himself this time.

All clubs would normally pay for lawyers or associated costs* in this sort of situation, that is why the stand down was significant.

*Meaning paying hush money to the victims

Ridiculous thread. He will be cleared in court.
Next step club ban perhaps 5 weeks.
Next year free agent and he will shift.
Supported by both parties.
Picked up by some club for basement price. 650k per season with heavy clauses.

You may be right but my take is that if the charges were going to be thrown out there wouldn't be further hearings.

The prosecution obviously believes their case is strong and NY prosecutors aren't going to waste resources on cases they don't believe are winnable.
