Deshaun Watson to Plead Fifth in his Civil Deposition

Deshaun Watson is pleading the Fifth.

The Houston Texans Quarterback is scheduled for his first deposition in the sexual misconduct civil lawsuits brought against him, with the quarterback’s legal camp preparing him to plead the Fifth in testimony.

Interestingly enough, Harris County District Attorney’s Office begins presenting evidence to a Houston grand jury in Watson’s criminal investigation.

The grand jury proceedings are expected to produce a decision on whether to indict the quarterback for felony sexual assault.

If that actually happens Watson’s football future could be even murkier.

Watson’s lawyer says Watson will continue to plead the Fifth in all of his deposition appearances until there is a resolution in the grand jury proceeding.

Meanwhile there still seems to be some interest in Watson in spite of all his legal stuff taking place.
