Current quarterback for the NFL’s New York Jets, Mark Sanchez, has become the center of media attention after a 17 year old girl accused him of having sexual relationship with her after he met her in a club they were both at. Deadline.com reported that the player met the girl in the club and hooked up with her immediately. However, the girl, reportedly, took the photos of his apartment to show it as a proof of their encounter. The girl’s name, who originally wanted to go under an anonymous name, is Eliza Kruger.
However, after the Kruger admitted that she was only 17 year old, Mark Sanchez told her that he can speak with her but he would not be able to get into any relationship with her until she is 18. The girl then replied him by saying that in New York, a girl of 17 years is considered an adult and hence any relationship between Mark Sanchez and the girl would not violate state laws. Regarding this issue, the New York Jets officials refused to comment anything and Bruce Speight, the spokesperson of the team told a media outlet that they would not comment anything about their quarterback’s personal life.
On the other hand, Mark Sanchez has strongly denied all the allegations. His attorney, Richard Kendall, wrote a letter to Deadline, which published the news, and stated that the allegations are “false”. He also stated that his client has told everyone repeated times that there is no authenticity in the matter. On the other hand, to prove the authenticity, the media outlet posted the Facebook message of the girl, where she wrote that Mark Sanchez has sent text messages to her.
