Allegations against Michael Crabtree falling apart

Otto Greule Jr

49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree is starting to emerge as truthful after being accused of sexual assault.

After being accused of sexual assault in a hotel by a woman following an NFC Divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree declared his innocence.

His word is looking good at the moment.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the accuser's claims are starting to look shaky at best. Two of the woman's friends have told the police that Crabtree did not sexually assault her at a party on the night in question, Jan. 12.

The police are also yet to discover any physical evidence that a crime was committed. The investigation is still open, but to this point, nothing has been found that makes Crabtree appear guilty.

The 25-year-old Crabtree has never been in any legal trouble before, making this claim all the more surprising.

On the field, 2012 has been a great year for Crabtree and his team, which is headed to Super Bowl XLVII to take on the Baltimore Ravens.
